In 2017, I did a Google search for Immigration lawyers in the area I was living at. I had recently gotten married and needed to start my marriage based Visa and Green Card application. I selected 3 options and called each one of them for an initial consultation. I think you can guess which firm I chose! :)
From the moment I spoke to Matt, I felt a genuine interest from him to help with my case, I had talked to several lawyers in the past when I tried to apply for DACA and I was able to distinguish between someone who is just doing what they do for a job and someone who actually cares about the job your case requires. My husband and I decided to trust Shaftel Law with our process and from day one I never felt alone or a nuisance whenever I called to ask for advice or request information on my case. I met Matt, Jessica and a couple other staff members in person at their office once or twice, I really can't remember; but they are as nice and welcoming in person, as they are over the phone.
Everyone was always available within reasonable time if not immediately every time I called. As far as their knowledge and experience, I can recognize now their preparedness and knowledge in all the concerning matters and I appreciate more since I was able to talk to other people going through the same process as me and their lawyers offered minimal help and support. Overall, I felt confident every step of the way going through this process, knowing that they were on top of everything I would need to have a successful outcome. I am very grateful for all the support and hard work that was put into my case by everyone involved at Shaftel Law but especially Matt and Jessica with whom I had the pleasure to talk to the most.
100% recommend Shaftel Law.
Initially I found Matt and his team a year ago on google. I decided to go in for a consultation based off of his reviews which are amazing and descriptive! That initial consultation is all I needed to know he was the lawyer my husband and I wanted. In that consult he explained all the routes possible to go about our case. He assured me he delivers quality and he told me I could do consultations with other law firms before deciding who to trust with our case. I did not go to another law firm for a consultation, I trusted my instinct and followed through with Shaftel Law. I just knew they were the right law firm from the start. Our case was not complicated and the outcome was successful. I want to thank the whole team, they definitely worked fast and they work with you! I especially want to thank Joanne, who was of great help even though she was not my paralegal. Matt is also a very invested attorney and I thank him as well! The whole team is very knowledgeable and committed to your case! Thank you!
At the end of 2021 I began my search for an immigration lawyer for my husband and I. I saw the reviews for Shaftel Law and decided to get a consultation. I’m very happy that I did. Matt was very clear during our initial consultation and help us understand the immigration process through marriage. He walked us through each step and helped us prepare for the process. He is also bilingual which helped my husband understand some of the more difficult concepts. His entire office staff was friendly and helpful we worked with two paralegals who were always quick responding and also clear when giving instructions or answering questions. Shaftel Law was also able to work with us on the payments and arranged something that worked for the both of us. They kept us updated and in the loop when it came to any news of the process. Immigration processes can be difficult to understand and perform alone, I highly recommend Shaftel Law to assist in navigating the US immigration processes. You won’t regret it!
Matt Shaftel and his law firm has my highest possible recommendation for their professionalism, consistent updates and most of all for all the random questions we keep asking him. I used his services for 2 very very important aspects of our immigration process. Once for my Citizenship application and once for my wife's permanent residency (green card) application. In both cases out experience was exemplary.
I couldn't recommend Matt and his team more!
Starting the immigration process (Green Card through Marriage) was incredibly overwhelming. We hadn’t realised how long the process could take, and it was the peak of COVID with the expiration of my existing VISA nearing closer. We spoke to a bunch of attorneys but the minute we spoke to Matt it was like a weight was lifted. He simplified the process for us so we could move quickly and sensing our desperation he had our paperwork filed within a week of us meeting him, just as he had promised.
Matt and his team were incredibly professional and got the job done promptly and accurately. They were responsive and honest about the timeframe and costs we were facing. They had all and answers to all the questions I had (and I had a lot). They didn’t just file our paperwork for us, they took steps beyond what was required, something that I believe was only able to be done thanks to the years of experience Matt has as an immigration attorney.
Professionally, Matt and his team are flawless, but what was most impressive to me was how genuine, kind and empathetic they were. Matt in particular treated me like a human, he always took my calls personally and never brushed me off, he always left me feeling reassured (and often I called in a panic). I cannot imagine going through the process with anyone else. If you’re considering using Shaftel Law, stop considering now and just make the choice - there is no better one.
