Great Legal Team!! Passionate, trustworthy and knowledgeable I had a great experience with the legal processing of my visa on their team. I appreciate the patience of Ms. Elsa Garcia to answer all my questions. Special thanks to Atty. Ellen, who guided me on what to expect for my interview which turned out successful. I felt their passion to make their clients feel satisfied and informed on whatever is happening to the application. I was well thought on the step by step process and they checked it carefully to make sure everything is correct. I highly recommend Law offices of Carl Shurtersman for your immigration processing.

I just received my green card! So thankful to the LAW OFFICES OF CARL SHUSTERMAN and Attorney Raj Iyer and L. Judith Lu. I am so lucky to have a very reliable, professional, and trustable law team. They quickly answered for my questions reminded me of many deadlines for my petition. I sometimes forgot to do some things because I was so busy for my work; however, Judith contacted me and reminded. Without them, I could not have had my green card so fast. I highly recommend Raj, and Judith, and LAW OFFICES OF CARL SHUSTERMAN.

If you're looking for an immigration attorney, then you know very well that there are hundreds to choose from and it can be very confusing and overwhelming to choose the right one. The best decision that I made regarding my immigration process was selecting to work with the office of Carl Shusterman. From his very informative website, to my first meeting with Attorney Carl Shusterman and to the end of my case, I felt very confident that my case was being taken care of in the best possible way. Paralegal Ana Cruz and Attorney ELLEN LEE were kind, thoughtful, sincere, gracious, helpful, funny, knowledgeable and an absolute delight to work with from beginning to end...they make you feel like family rather than just a client. It is a pleasure for me to have such wonderful service and i highly recommend the Law Office of Carl Shusterman, especially Ana Cruz and attorney ELLEN LEE.

The Law Offices of Carl Shusterman have been absolutely amazing! They have exceeded our expectations and where 100% honest with us. Finding an immigration lawyer is a daunting task. We have hired other lawyers that actually made our situation worse, then we found Carl Shusterman. The phone consultation with Carl was relieving. We explained our situation, C1D crewman visa, what we have done with other lawyers & what we were trying to achieve. Carl was honest with us, explained the risks and what his firm could do for us. He said that he could get us approved for the 601A waiver. Just talking to Carl will put you at ease, he is that easy going. That day we made the best decision in our life, we hired the Law Offices Of Carl Shusterman. Carl assigned our case to attorney Ellen Lee & paralegal Ana Cruz. They are a great team. They were always there for us. If we e-mailed or called they got right back to us. Explained everything every step of the way. Ellen and Ana took their time with us, never rushed a phone conversation. Ellen put us at ease, always made time for us & talked to us like a friend, not a client. We live in NJ and they are in Los Angeles. Some calls where over an hour! What lawyer does that anymore?, Ellen Lee. The interview is a life changing event and you can't help being nervous about it. Ellen prepared us for the interview, several times! By the time we were ready to go, our nerves where settled. Thanks to Ellen. The interview at the embassy went as Ellen said it would. We are now back in the U.S. We are eternally greatful to them, after 11 years I finally was able to go back home & hug my family! I highly recommend The Law Offices of Carl Shusterman. We will be using them for all our future immigration needs. I simply cannot express in words how great they are. If you need an immigration attorney, look no further than The Law Offices of Carl Shusterman!

If you want the best, the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman is it! From day one, they took care of me and my immigration needs. They made filing paperwork simple, kept in contact with me about the progress of my case, made no errors whatsoever, and were the friendliest people. I was able to make payment arrangements, according to my income, so they really worked with me. Ellen Ma Lee was such a pleasant person. She was so knowledgeable; She guided me and my husband perfectly through our interview and made us feel secure and confident. Everyone who works here really knows what they are doing. This law firm is seriously the best out there, so if anyone is looking for the right people to turn to, please do not look any further and contact them. I am now waiting for my green card and will be applying for my citizenship very soon, all thanks to this amazing group of people.
