Testimonials & Reviews

Dearest Attorney Carson,

Thank you so much for everything you have done. Thank you for taking time to call and share the great news. I honor and value you for your genuine concern and for personally having a relationship with your clients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. More than words can say, I thank you deeply. Thank you most especially for helping not only me and my husband, but also my family back home in the Philippines who depend on me. You don’t know how much that means to them. Thank you for making a difference in our lives. Thank you for giving hope and being an inspiration. May God bless you abundantly and your family!

I-130 Petition, Marriage-Based, Approval and “Green Card” Processing through the National Visa Center with a successful interview at the London Embassy for a U.K. National

Good Morning,

Greetings – I arrived on Thursday in the late evening to a relatively quiet immigration hall. I was advised to line up in the visitor’s line and waited around 5 minutes. I handed my packet and passport over to a very friendly immigration officer. No real questioning beyond the usual. He said congratulations and passed me over to secondary immigration. I waited perhaps another 5 minutes and then a lady came and took my fingerprints and a signature for my green card. Was told to sit back down and wait. 10 Minutes later I was called over to an office. It was explained that I was being issued a 2 year entry and that I will have to file a form 90 days before it expires to have the restrictions removed. And that was it. Really painless! Thank you so much for all your help, we couldn’t have done this without you. I still haven’t really processed the fact I am here!

I-129 O-1A Petition, Extraordinary Ability Status, Approval for Physician/Lead Researcher from Brazil

I-140 Petition, Outstanding Professor and Researcher, and Adjustment of Status/“Green Card” Approval for Romanian Physicist

Hi Giselle,

That’s such great news. Now I can plan my summer vacation. I remember the “let’s start the process” email from you that was sent right after the Independence Day Weekend. I ALREADY GOT THE GREEN CARD by mail yesterday (in about ten and a half months) right before the Memorial Day weekend. The green card is the only document I will need from now on (besides my passport) to reenter the U.S. I’ll travel to Romania this summer. I couldn’t help but ‘turning back time’ almost 12 years when a very young, former high-school teacher arrived in the U.S., with only $400 in his pocket, but with hope, dreams, academic skills and potential and determination to succeed: I have to say that I am pleased and very grateful for how things turned out so far. Thank you so very much for your team’s outstanding work and support with this pivotal “green card” matter!

Good evening! Thanks so much Giselle! This approval was only possible with your amazing knowledge and strategic approach, together with your paralegal team’s tactical methods. Because of you, the petition was submitted in a perfect and timely manner, and it secured USCIS’ approval. Looking forward to working with you and your team on an H-1B/H-4 3-year extension. Have a nice weekend!

I-601, Extreme Hardship Waiver, approval for United Kingdom national married to United States Citizen

We are just beyond happy and cannot thank you enough. We never would have won this case without you. I was also shocked at the short timeframe of the approval. We had resigned ourselves to the fact that we may not know anything for another year. We will give you the highest recommendations.
