We started working with Lisa and the team in late 2014 and got a handful of work visas approved since: several O-1, L-1 and H-1B cases. We'll continue our work together as we grow as an international business.  Lisa's caring, cautious approach and attention to detail has been great help through the years and different cases. I recommend you talk to Lisa whether you need a work visa or a green card.
I was referred to Lisa by another entrepreneur who successfully got his O1 visa and recommended her services. We’ve started with an initial consultation that was super helpful to understand the extraordinary ability criteria for the visa and the overall viability of my case. Which lead to the process of preparing my case and gathering of all the supporting materials. I’m super satisfied with the services her team provided considering the fact I got my petition approved right away without any additional requests for evidence!
