Michael went above and beyond for my successful O1 petition. Even though we were met with some very frustrating moments along the way, he was always there to make sure everything ran smoothly. His personal stories, positive outlook and complete confidence in my case, made me feel at ease.

From the start to finish this was a pleasant, professional experience. Michael made the process so simple, knew all the forms to file, and kept track of everything. When we went for the interview it was simple. All the papers and information were already there, we were finished in 10 minutes. Five stars aren't enough.
