K.O November 2022

I want to say a big thank you for helping us with our strokes interview. When I contacted U O A LEGAL and told him about our situation, I was scared and so worried because it was my second marriage and I felt defeated when I go the stroke interview letter but he took his time to explain the process and what the USCIS look for during a strokes interview and he assured me that we will do great. I had lots of questions and he didn’t rush me or sound dismissive like some lawyers I spoke with. He wasn’t about the money but a successful outcome. He gave us pointers and questions I didn’t even think about. The pointers were super helpful and came in handy during our interview, and some of the things he suggested to us during our mock interview with him, came up during our interview. We are super glad we hired him as our immigration lawyer and he was worth it. Within three weeks after our Interview, I got my permanent residency. Having a knowledgeable and caring lawyer is so worth it and I will recommend his law office anytime.Thank you so much for all your help. 🙏🏾
