What Our Clients Are Saying
“We were recommended to contact Jennifer Varughese for a personal immigration matter from a family friend. After contacting her we had no doubt that she has immense knowledge in US Immigration law… We were kept informed of all actions and progress through emails, mails and phone calls. It was never hard to reach her and she replied our questions promptly. Recently I contacted her again for another immigration matter and was again impressed by her professionalism, honesty, and empathy with clients…” – TJ
“Susannah Nichols and Maria did a great job. My husband is American and I’m French, they helped us very efficiently with all the paperwork. We were scared to have to wait for long months before being able to live together and I recently invested in the USA with a special visa so I really needed to adjust my situation. We avoided a cruel and ruining situation like being away from each other with the huge cost of living apart in 2 expensive cities: Paris and Washington DC. I recommend them for all your immigration needs.” – Veronique D.C.
“Ms. Varughese handled my brother’s difficult case with immigration. Her knowledge, experience, empathy, warm & inviting attitude has made me feel very positive & comfortable with the legal process. I googled this office at the beginning & I am 100% satisfied…” – Rubi P.
