Client Testimonials

Here are a few of our clients’ reviews on AVVO’s website:

“I want to extend my thanks to you for sharing such helpful and important information with the group of students and staff at Northwestern last Thursday evening. [Lisa was] incredibly generous with [her] time and resources and I know it is greatly appreciated by all. It is very clear that [Lisa is] truly passionate about [her] work as well!”

Rebekah Kane

“I had to request to meet Lisa after I heard the awesome professional representation she did for a friend of mine who had been sent away by previous lawyers who assumed there was no hope for her case. When I met with her, I confirmed her profound expertise and outstanding client relationship which is not so common in the legal field nowadays. she is the immigration attorney you are looking for.”


“Lisa and her team were very knowledgeable and helpful throughout the process. They were always on hand and prompt to return any queries. She clearly has a passion for her field of work and I would highly recommend her services. Thank you for your help.”
