There are a lot of immigration lawyers out there. Some are good. Only a select few are great. Rosy is definitely one of those select few.
I have been trying to get a permanent residency for my wife. It was a battle for 14 years. We went through IJ, BIA, 9th Circuit, deportation proceeding. We have consulted different attorneys and hired some to represent us. At the end we lost all of it. We got ICE agents knocking on our door on three separate occasions. No fun.
Then we met Rosy. Right from the first meeting, we knew she’s different. You can tell she does this out of her passion. After reviewing our case, she gave an honest opinion regarding our situation and provided some options. We were discouraged at first. However after we went home, we realized that she was giving a hard truth but truth nonetheless. She was more interested in helping us than whether or not we retain her.
Finally we decided to contact her again and have her represented us. She did a excellent job in updating us every step of the way. Answered every question and updating us when new immigration policy was enacted that will benefit us.
She was able to reopen our case, terminate the deportation proceeding. Two weeks ago my wife received her permanent residency.
You want a lawyer who will fight tooth and nail for you. Don’t contact any other lawyer before you talked to her first.
Beware, she will be honest with you and might tell you things that you don’t want to hear about your case. But know this, those are honest comments that came from 10+ years of experience. Wait a minute, isn’t that what you hired a lawyer for? Not to get a sugarcoated comment just to get you sign a retainer.
