"I had been accepted for a 1-year internship at an LA-based software consulting company. As a French citizen, I needed a J-1 visa asap to be able to work in the US. Genie assisted me from start to finish. She: - Explained the visa and process clearly - Took care of finding and liaising with the proper Visa sponsorship agency - Provided all documents in a timely manner - Assisted me with filling in the additional documentation - Consolidated the file and managed processing and payment - Researched and gave me advice (embassy interview) - Followed up on my progress - Always kept me informed Needless to say, I got my J-1 visa. What I appreciated the most was her speed and continuous support. Not only did she take the time to explain the entire process, she was also constantly available by email, responding as soon as she saw my emails (within the day due to time difference). Overall, Genie is an extremely capable and qualified lawyer that takes the time to understand, and more importantly be understood by, her clients!"

"Genie has done work on my J-1, H1B and Green Card. She is really knowledgeable and smart. She knows every detail and really eager to help me. Whenever I had questions she immediately answered them. She created timelines and informed me about every single detail of the process. Told me what obstacles that I might face, what could go wrong in my situation. She worked really hard for my case, and I can see how passionate she is about her job."
