I had a great experience with Andrew Diamond from The Visa Place. Andrew was very knowledgable and helped us every step of the way. When we had a discrepancy with my spouse’s Visa Andrew helped us navigate the system in the USA. He even offered to speak directly to the customs and border control officer to help us iron out the situation. Overall the experience was very good and smooth. I highly recommend Andrew and his services at The Visa Place.

I spoke with Lilly last week and she’s incredible. Very informative and you can tell she definably cares about her job. She wasn’t pushy at all and she’s there to help you figure out if this service is right for you. I’d recommend contacting VisaPlace if you’re thinkin of traveling internationally and you have questions about the different types of permits.

Extremely satisfied with the professionalism, expertise, efficiency, speed and thoroughness at which my file was managed. Fadi & Danielle are true class acts! Their response times were fantastic (especially during a high-stress period), their quality of work was phenomenal, and their willingness to go the extra mile (without hidden costs, no less!) to prepare me for my work permit interview was unmatched. I strongly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking legal counsel as it relates to cross-border services. Highest Regards, Krista

Very good personal experience with this law firm. I am a Canadian and had overstayed a visa in the US and received a bar. Attorneys and staff were extremely knowledgeable. I was given accurate information with no false hopes. My case was completed and approved 3 months faster than expected. Overall, very satisfied with this firm and would highly recommend them. When you are in need of immigration assistance, it can be grave and critical to get help from someone who can be trusted – this firm is certainly trustworthy and will do whatever they can to get your case approved.

EDIT: Another great experience 5 years later with waiver renewal/lifting of my bar from the US. Very reasonable fees for the challenge of dealing with US immigration during Covid and new immigration laws. Another successful outcome with only a minor snag (not related to lawfirm). My bar was lifted and I am now free to travel to the US at will. Very satisfied.
