"I entered the USA illegally many years ago. I found out over 10 years later that I was ordered removed from the USA without being present in court. I was now married with US citizen children and my wife had Naturalized. She was able to reopen my case and helped me return to America with my Green Card from India. Many lawyers refused to take my case. We went with Ms. Gilliard because she listened to us and was honest about the complexity of the case but wanted to fight for us. I spent many years in hiding and fearful of my future and my family if I were deported. She filed waivers for my case and we actually won!!! I am able to run my businesses stress free and no longer live in fear. So thankful!"

"Gilliard assisted me with obtaining a business visa. I was on another visa temporarily and hopeless. She helped me explore all my options to remain in the United States as well as my family. She educated me about the process even when some of the answers were difficult to process and accept. I now have lawful permanent residence in the USA thanks to her professionalism and guidance."
