    Attorney Nevsky helped with a case that I couldn't solve for over 2 years working with 2 other attorneys. She was very professional and was following up on all my questions during the process. In less than two months of working with her, my case was dismissed. I would absolutely use her again for any Immigration needs! She is a true professional and very knowledgable of the latest legislation and news.

    I have nothing but good words to say about Lena Nevsky. I wish that I would’ve known about this firm right from the beginning. The law firm I used for my adjustment of status was terrible and got my husband and I in more trouble. A friend of mine then suggested that I should call Lena. She is so super nice, very easy to approach and always replies her emails promptly. Thanks to her work we got our waiver I 601 approved when I personally thought we don’t stand a chance, then a few days ago I got my I 751 approved. A very long, bumpy road but it’s done and all thanks to Lena. Don’t hesitate to contact this firm for any related matters, well worth it!!!

    Elena is a great professional! She prepared me for the naturalization process. I was really nervous, but she made me feel as much confident as it was possible in my situation. The assistant worked super professional too, always being in touch whenever I had problems and very pleasant to communicate. Elena was listened to me carefully, took all the information I provided and created a plan of action with the real careful personal approach. Overall I am very happy, everything went smooth with no problems occurred.

    I did my green card case with Lena Nevsky, after I had some bad experience with another lawyer. She is so professional and helpful! I just wish I met her from my day one in the USA. Also she took care of all my questions and had zoom calls when I needed help. It’s rare, trust me. Really REALLY RECOMMEND to work with her. There are a lot of lawyers who offer their service. Some of them are bad, some are good and too expensive. When you’re an immigrant you can’t really know who is who and what price is right. So I feel very important to say out loud about the good ones who do their job perfectly for the fair price. Definitely will come back as soon as I need. Thank you so much!

Lena examined every detail in my history and prepared a package to the immigration service, covering each point in a thorough and professional manner. She met with us to prepare us for an interview and she attended our interview by phone. Our case was approved at the interview and I now can live and work in the United States and travel out of the country, which I couldn’t do in a long time. I recommend Lena Nevsky to anyone who needs representation in the area of the immigration law - she is an honest, caring, meticulous and very competent attorney who has not only 20+ years of professional experience but also human qualities that made me feel cared for and supported through the entire process.

    Before meeting the immigration attorney Lena Nevsky in connection with obtaining a green card based on marriage, I tried some other ways - none of which appeared to be trustworthy. Lena has succeeded in everything that we’ve worked on together. She also represented me in connection with the removal of condition from my permanent residency.  Lena demonstrated herself as a knowledgeable, experienced and reliable professional, I felt almost relaxed in a seamless and easy process. From the first day I met Lena, I recommend her to all my friends with any type of immigration need as I am certain of her expertise not only in the area of family immigration but also business immigration, asylum, removal and naturalization.

I was left with no direction and no support and was very frustrated. Lena saved me from being unlawfully in the US and assisted me in the process of receiving a green card. Lena was very detailed in the preparation of my self-petitioning VAWA case, going over every detail and documenting the package very thoroughly. I received my green card in the mail, I wasn't even called for an interview. I highly recommend Lena to anyone looking for representation in the family immigration category.

    We retained this immigration attorney in connection with family sponsorship, which required consular processing and a I-601 application to waive prior immigration violations of my wife. To complicate things, we were going through this already difficult process during one of the most restrictive immigration regimes but we prevailed at every step. My family reunited in the United States in the fall of 2020. When we started this process, it seemed like the complexity of the process and the "extreme hardship" standard of inadmissibility waiver were too high hurdles to overcome but due to professionalism and hard work of our immigration attorney Lena Nevsky, we achieved our immigration goals. We are grateful that we made the right choice and picked an experienced professional who walked us through this complicated process toward reunification of our family.
