    A family friend recommended Lena Nevsky when my husband and I were looking for help with our family immigration case. Lena Nevsky helped me and my daughter to get our conditional green cards and then assisted us with the removal of condition from our residency. Today my daughter and I have unconditional green cards and we are very happy about how smooth and quick the process was. We will definitely use Lena Nevsky in the future for our citizenship process and will gladly recommend her to people we know. She is not only a great attorney but also a kind and honest person. It is very important to have a competent and trustworthy professional by your side when you are trying to obtain an immigration benefit. Oxana Lepestkina

  • A competent and effective immigration attorney is absolutely essential in any immigration process, even a seemingly straightforward one. As a political scientist and a university professor, working in the field of Migration Studies, I can recognize and appreciate a true professional, such as Lena Nevsky, who assisted me both with my immigration needs and scholarly work. Lena offered me clarity and understanding of the process and provided precise guidance towards its completion, which gave me the results I was looking for. I am grateful that I worked with this immigration attorney and highly recommend her to anyone looking for representation in connection with various immigration needs.

    My friend recommended Lena Nevsky when I experienced an unfortunate change in circumstances during the family sponsorship case I filed with my former husband. 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 chose immigration attorney Lena Nevsky because she was highly recommended by our friends. Lena represented us at different stages of a family sponsorship matter, which had certain complications along the way and needed extra research and special care. Lena was highly competent, professional and caring in her work. She prepared a very well documented submission to USCIS and my permanent green card was approved. Lena also was advising us in this matter on an ongoing basis and kept us informed of the progress. We are very happy that we chose this immigration attorney for our needs.

    I’m so happy that I used this attorney for my family immigration case! I had lots of fears and uncertainty going into the immigration process because I had circumstances complicating my case. 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. I’m grateful to this immigration attorney.

  • I contacted Lena Nevsky in Honolulu, who came highly recommended. Lena took time to review our case and to explain what was happening. She was not only very knowledgeable, but also kind and compassionate and she held our hand until I finally received my green card. Thank you, Lena, for your guidance and patience with my immigration matter. ?

    thumb Met Yana

    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.

    thumb Azret Bytdaev
  • 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. And she is kind & calm, too.
