Professional and Resourceful
I did my Green Card process with Evita. They are super professional and resourceful and answered all of my questions as soon as possible with detail. The whole process was smooth and fast. Evita made sure we gather all the documents and application and submit it on time. I recommended my close friend to her and defiantly I recommend her to everyone who is seeking a good Immigration attorney.

Green card process
Sincerest thank you!! Evita was our Attorney for my wife’s application for her green card in the U.S. While she started as our lawyer, she became a trusted advisor and confidant. What we expected to be a stressful process became much more reasonable due to Evita’s patient guidance. She took away the myths by educating us about what we could expect based on her experience. Throughout the process, she was open, warm and kind. We both felt that we were in good hands at all times. Our application was successful – and fast – and this was largely due to the care she took in advising us on all areas of the process. We can’t begin to say how much we appreciate what you have done. We remain very grateful for your expertise, professionalism, thoroughness, and kindness. Steven and Carla

Private Practice
- Current
We represent employers in obtaining immigrant and non-immigrant work visas, individuals in obtaining family visas for relatives abroad, and foreign students and trainees in seeking visas to pursue their respective endeavors in the United States. We have been extremely successful in immigration litigation involving adjudication of delayed naturalization and adjustment of status applications in federal courts. In addition, we work closely with foreign nationals facing criminal convictions, to minimize the negative impact of criminal violations on their immigration history. We also represent foreign nationals in the areas of federal income, gift and international taxation at all levels of the Internal Revenue Service review and in the United States Tax Court.
