  • 5 star ratingScarlett and her team are very professional and the best immigration attorney I ever worked with.  I originally started my green card filing (marriage based) with Randall Caudle, and I had Scarlett attended to my interview.  Ever since, she'd been helping my green card process.  She and her staff were always open to answer my questions or concerns no matter how small or silly that... read more

    My wife (a Brazilian citizen) and I have been working with Leiva throughout the process from marriage, to conditional (2 year) green card, and now to the permanent (10 year) green card. Leiva has reasonable rates (including flat fees for certain services, hourly for others) and were very helpful navigating a complex and sometimes frustrating process.

    5 star ratingMy husband's green card (marriage based) arrived in the mail yesterday!  Due to the recent immigration reforms, his application experienced serious delays. We were extremely anxious throughout the whole process and often wanted quick answers. Scarlett frequently replied to our emails at night and during the weekends, which really helped calm our nerves and made us feel well taken care of.

    5 star ratingScarlett and her team were extremely competent and held our hand throughout the year-long process. Scarlett was knowledgable and answered all our questions, including unique corner-case questions about our specific situation, making us feel calm and prepared throughout the process. Elyse, the legal assistant was extremely efficient and updated us throughout every step and made an otherwise nerve wracking process comfortable.
