Place Your American Dream Into Reliable Hands

American Dream

During 20 years of professional experience specializing in immigration matters we have learned to navigate murky waters of ever changing immigration landscape to achieve great results for thousands of our clients. With the advent of the Trump administration, our country ceased to be a “Nation of Immigrants” and the denial rates in nearly every category of an immigration benefit have increased exponentially as the new administration:

  • Weaponized Covid-19 to block legal immigration,
  • Has been dismantling the asylum process,

  • Imposed a “wealth test” for immigrants and visitors,
  • Reinterpreted the law to create major obstacles for workers,
  • Pushed more people into removal proceedings,
  • Controlled immigration courts to increase removal rates,
  • Slowed down benefits processing to unprecedented delays.

Our extensive experience and exclusive focus on the ever-evolving area of the U.S. immigration law will help you attain your American dream.

  • 5 star review  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.

    5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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

    5 star review  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.

  • 5 star review  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.
