My wife lived in the U.S for 29 years without legal papers. She has been hiding, scared and already losing hope, until we met Attorney Joseph.
Attorney Joseph worked very hard on her asylum case and deportation proceedings, and my wife was granted permanent residency in just two court hearings.
Amazing service! Ram is insightful but honest - he won't water down any information for the sake of comfort, but will tell you the facts straight.
My wife and I were well prepared for our interview thanks to Ram and his team.
My case was extremely difficult and a waiver was needed to get an approval.
Attorney Ram handled my immigration case with great precision and commitment.
Extreme hardship waiver was approved and I got my green card, and just a couple weeks ago I got my U.S Citizenship.
Ram guided us painstakingly through every step of this arduous process.

We received our green card finally and are very thankful to Ram and his team.
