"I got to know Karen Weinstock in 2006 when I first was relocated by the company I was working for. With an existing L1 visa I reached out to her to get more details on how to apply for a green card. When we met I immediately knew I was in great hands. Karen is so calm and with her outstanding knowledge and experience it was easy to work with her. Unfortunately the company I worked for pulled the plug and we couldn’t proceed with the application. I stayed in touch with Karen and whenever I had a question I reached out to her and received a response within 24 hours. In 2012 my work visa expired I reached out again to find out what I can do to extend my stay for a certain time. Karen helped me with a tourist visa and everything went so smooth, no issues no problems, no questions asked by the immigration. My stay got extended for another 6 months. During this period I started dating a guy I knew for quite some time and once the tourist visa expiration came close he asked me to stay with him and his little son (who lost his mom due to sickness). Again I went to see Karen and she was so touched by the story and happy for me and said, we are going to apply for an extension of the tourist visa that should give us time to decide what we want to do later on. My tourist visa was about to expire and just one week before the expiration date my boy friend asked me to marry him, to stay with him and his little boy (my little sunshine). I said yes and we went back to see Karen since we knew we couldn’t pull of the wedding before my visa expiration date. Karen was so happy to see that everything worked out and gave us the steps we have to take in order to file for the green card. We filed the application about 2 weeks after our marriage and about 6 weeks after my visa expiration and today I am a green card holder. Living happily with my family in the US. If Karen wouldn’t have the knowledge, I may have had to leave the country and it would have taken us forever to get back together. I am so thankful that I met Karen and she was our immigration attorney. Karen and her team are fantastic and I hope she will be able to help many couples to be able to stay together."

I wouldn’t be where I am to today without Karen Weinstock and her team.

"Karen Weinstock and her team literally saved my friend's life! Being from a foreign country, having NO obvious legal way to stay in the U.s, Karen knew the law and used her knowledge to not only make it legal for my friend to stay in the U.s. but also set the ground work for her to obtain her green card! Every step of the way, the team kept us informed, showed us exactly what we needed to do/complete, reviewed documents, legal precedents and overall paved the way for my friend to not only live again but begin a brand new life. Our deepest respect, gratitude, and appreciation will always be theirs!"

Literally SAVED her life!
