    5 star review  Immigration-related matters are serious, often-times stressful, expensive and require a great deal of time, and that professional eye for detail! Advice is good, but be careful, whose advice you buy. That said, my wife and I were blessed when we discovered David, from this exemplary law firm, which truly served our needs. David proved to be above and beyond, and in every way, just who we wanted to prepare us, review our documents and have us feeling ready and confident ahead of what many view as that nerve-wracking interview. Thank you, David, our case was successfully completed in less than six months, and in the interview room, we even bowled the immigration officer at how well prepared we were. David was always on standby and could be reached. He reviewed every document in detail in a timely and efficient manner and made sure none contained even a single error. If you want to feel rest assured that all your information will be submitted factually, your application process will be thoroughly completed and you will be prepared and feeling confident, then David is your lawyer, and this is your firm. David's expertise, calmness, professionalism, reliability, and genuine care left us feeling ' in the right hands' from the very start until our process was complete. This was truly worth the price, as we had received a lot of advice, even some misinformation from someone who claimed to know the process "inside out". Luckily, we didn't take that person's advise, instead David saw us through to the end. I am happy to recommend this firm, as one that is; inexpensive, knowledgeable, caring, and tried-and proved to handle your case on the path to success.

    5 star review  I used Kohina Law Firm's document review service for filing I-751 Removal of Conditions. David was very professional and timely in his communications. I usually received responses to emails within a couple of hours and he was always willing to talk over questions over the phone. He was courteous and happy to answer questions. I plan on using his services for filing N-400 when the time comes and highly recommend him to anyone considering immigration law services.
