“Led by the hand until the end. After consulting with an immigration attorney who did not give me much hope, a friend of mine recommended that I speak to attorney, Amira Al-Alami. My friend spoke very highly about her and assured me that she would be able to help me with my immigration case.

When I went to her law office, Amira’s staff treated me very well, and when I spoke with her personally, she made me feel confident that I was in the right hands. I knew that my case was not going to be easy to resolve since my wife and I had been previously caught trying to enter the United States illegally. Additionally, I have a criminal record, and that alone made me extremely worried that one wrong decision could land me in removal proceedings. Not wanting to take any chances, Amira requested both my wife’s and my immigration history from USCIS before filing anything on our behalves. From that point on, we felt like Amira and her staff took my wife and I by the hand until we obtained our greencards.

The day of our adjustment of status interviews I felt extremely nervous. I remember looking at my attorney and hearing her say, ‘everything is going to be just fine.’ When the officer informed us that our greencards had been approved, I felt like the happiest man in the world. All of this is thanks to my attorney, Amira Al-Alami.

After being outside of Mexico for so many years, I was finally able to return to see my parents. Upon returning to the U.S. I had an unpleasant encounter with Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents at the airport due to my previous criminal history. I was interrogated and held for close to 8 hours. As soon as I was released, I contacted Amira and informed her of what had happened. She contacted CBP headquarters in Washington, D.C. to address what had happened to me. I am happy to say that the issues that I had were resolved, and I have been traveling in and out of the United States without incident ever since.

I have recommended Amira Al-Alami to all of my work colleagues, family and friends as we say in Mexico, ‘con ojos cerrados.’ I’m happy to say that I am not the only success story who has come out of Amira’s office. I know a large number of people who she has helped.

It is with this brief note that my family and I would like to express our sincerest appreciation for everything you’ve done.”
