“Ahmad helped me to turn my E2 status into a green card without having me leave the US. (previously he successfully helped me with the E2 status as well). All the process was nice and smooth; I obtained the Green Card a few months before expectations and now I'm welcomed to the US! He has always been very responsive and friendly, addressing all my questions in a calm and effective way. Thank you Ahmad so very much!!”

“Mr. Yakzan showed me his professionalism from the start and also told me the choices and the hurdles I had ahead but his knowledge of the immigration law was and is more than what I was expecting. I’ve been in this wonderful land of dreams and opportunities for many years and thought I was safe for many reasons but I broke the law and my dreams were fading away very quickly. After talking and meeting with Mr. Yakzan, he gave me back some faith and after applying for an adjustment of status and being approved for a work permit I was back on the happy trail soon after that, I received a letter for my immigration interview and if it wasn’t for all the help, assistance and true knowledge of the law from Mr. Yakzan and his team, I would have never had my green card approved inside the USA Mr. Yakzan and his team are amazing and I thank all of them for all their hard work and persistence but I will be forever Grateful to Mr. Yakzan! Thank you so much for everything you did for me Mr. Yakzan and you proved to me that you are not only a great man but a top attorney and wish you much success and all my best!!! With much respect and admiration! Always!!!”
