Best Immigration Lawyer

“Outstanding Immigration Lawyer. I have known Lisa for almost 20 years. She first helped me get my green card and later my US Citizenship. She came with me for my citizenship interview and made sure that all went well. I entirely trust Lisa and her decisions. As a result, I recommended Lisa to my brother and Lisa got him his green card as well. I strongly recommend Lisa Scott to anyone looking for an honest and extremely knowledgeable immigration attorney.” -Bharat on AVVO
