As I have only needed to use a law firm on this one occasion I had no idea what it would involve.  I was concerned that it would be a complex process. I should not have had reservations as the encounter was handled extremely smoothly by Matt and the Shaftel Law Firm team.  I cannot recommend them enough. They were so easy to work with, responsive to my questions and needs, not at all intimidating and virtually held my hand through the paperwork and interviews. My situation was fairly straight forward but, regardless, it was nice to know I had someone in my court that I could trust, helping me every step of the way to citizenship. 

Thank you, Matt. I will be forever grateful for your help and professionalism.

“I would recommend Matt to anyone going through any immigration issues. He is by far one of the best immigration lawyers I have came across (and there have been plenty)! After spending over $10K from one lawyer, and almost another $5K with another, I began to look for different options. I was fortunate enough to have found Matt. With less than one year Matt helped me receive a work permit then my green card, something that my parents and I had worked so hard to get for many, many years.

Matt is a very knowledgeable lawyer, a very humble individual. He takes the time to fully explain every situation and scenario, to help his clients understand each and every process. He did not come off as being just about the money, he does what he does because he loves to help individuals, and is about doing the “right” thing. My family and I are very grateful for all of Matt’s help. With Trump being in office now, we were terrified of being separated. Me having to go to a country I’ve hardly lived in, and worse being away from my kids. Now we can continue our lives more at ease.”

“The experienced immigration team at SHAFTEL LAW helped me obtain an approved I-140 in the EB-1 (person of extraordinary ability) category. From the start of my case, his team carefully evaluated my credentials to determine if I was a good EB-1 Extraordinary Ability candidate. They were able to identify some areas of my case that I could improve upon, namely, finishing some additional journal reviews and finishing an additional scholarly publication. Once they determined that my case was ready to be filed, we filed with premium processing and my case was approved in less than a week. SHAFTEL LAW is always available to answer your questions and they are truly experts in the EB-1 categories.”

“Matt and Shaftel Law Firm did a great job for me as my immigration attorney—both on filing for my H1-B Visa extension and for permanent residency based on employment. He made himself easily available, and his use of direct communication and plain language altogether made it easy and efficient for me and my employer to do business with him. I found him and his paralegal staff to be knowledgeable and experienced with the whole immigration process, as well as quick and efficient answering all my questions throughout the course of my applications. They have been very encouraging and respectful of my wishes, all the while offering professional advice and alternative options and solutions.
