Client Reviews
Mark is one of the best things happened to me in immigration. I was very skeptical as my last attempt to obtain an L1A was a negative one through another lawyer. Mark came in and… [made] sure that the case [was refiled] successfully. Rest assured, I can vouch for his services and will recommend him highly.

I was qualified as a physician in a foreign country. Being on a J-1 visa I was facing having to leave the United States and return to my home country.
