    Joe has helped me and my wife to legally stay in the country for the last 4 years and to obtain Green Cards for me and my wife. Staying legal can be very stressful. Joe has always guided us through all the application processes and has come up with the right solution to maintain our current immigration status. I recommend Joe as an immigration attorney.

    After 15 years of visas and now U.S. Citizenship, I can tell you that Joe Rosen made all the difference. I have had other attorneys in the past, who really did not take the time to find solutions and take a sincere interest in my situation. Joe is highly respected by all his foreign clients. Immigration matters can be stressful and he helped alleviate any worries that I may have had. I highly recommend Joe to all, as he is knowledgeable, professional and above all, someone who really cares.

    Joe was recommended to us several years ago. We knew that our situation would be a challenge, but Joe's commitment and attention to detail has far exceeded our expectations. It makes a refreshing change to find someone who truly cares about the people he is working with.. We would have no hesitation in referring Joe, knowing with confidence that he and his staff will do an excellent job.

    I have used many different immigration lawyers in the past 12 years. We started using Joe Rosen exclusively when he opened his practice. He is more knowledgeable and more reliable than anybody else we have ever used. He really cares. I would recommend him to everyone.
