When my husband and I went in for our immigration interview I was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement for a pending deportation case that I didn't even know I had against me. After I contacted Jennifer Durkin and within our first conversation over the phone I knew I made the right decision. Not only were they incredibly professional, but also well informed about the type of case I had explaining the many aspects of deportation and removal proceedings... before we even met.

When I came in for consultation not only was it enlightening but they were also very welcoming, considering that immigration law is very complex not to mention incredibly delicate... from the beginning I was being seen as a person, and not simply a client or business associate. There was never a question that remained unanswered, they were always easy to reach, and you never have to wait long for a response.

Jennifer is also very straightforward, and... the firm's rates and fees are both manageable and reasonable. Quite frankly, for the wonderful job that they have done and the humility and respect that they do it with- to me for the life with my family that I was able to preserve with their help it seems almost priceless.

My case took a little over a year to settle... it went by rather quickly... I have been granted permanent residence status. Because of their phenomenal help I was able to continue my education in the United States, graduate from college and I am currently applying to law school and it is only thanks to them that I could continue moving forward.

If you are looking for a superb firm, with exceptional expertise, reasonable rates, and the knowing that you will be treated with professionalism and respect then you can truly rely on Jennifer Durkin.

This is an amazing firm! Ms. Richa Puri has shown outstanding,and genuine concern for my case, this is very rare to find nowdays and I thank God that this firm is on my side.

These are "The lawyers with the gentle touch". They know Inmigration laws inside and out, and will go above and beyond the call of duty, and that is a fresh breath of air in an atmosphere that is polluted with lawyers that take your hard-earned money without any results or concern for the client.

This firm will be around for many years to come, and we need to pray and support them in order to keep them around.

Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.

God bless!

When I think about my experience with Jennifer Durkin, these words sum up my thoughts. "I was heard and understood. I was shown real concern, attention, and given careful guidance. I was saved!"

During the summer of 2007 the worst scenario imaginable for an immigrant had happened to me. Despite having lived in the U.S. for 18 years since the age of 9, I was detained and being processed for deportation to a country I knew little about. It never mattered that I grew and was educated here, or that I had a family to support, paid my taxes, and was a law abiding contributor to the society. It truly was my great fortune to have had Jennifer Durkin, and her firm, behind me. Jennifer saw me through the toughest and most important situation I had ever known - all the way to court where my deportation order was rescinded. Her genuine concern, integrity, professional and personal skill instantly gained my complete confidence and I never doubted her. Regardless of the outcome then, I knew the best possible actions were being made and it helped to put me at ease through that worrisome time. Through their care I am part of the lucky few who find themselves free with a new lease on life. My family and I are truly thankful and forever in her debt.

I would like to take this opportunity to share my experience with this law firm. I am pleased to have worked with them over the last year, specifically Richa Puri. Richa has proven to be an outstanding Attorney, and I have found her to be dependable, friendly and very knowledgeable. Whenever I needed her she was always there. She returns calls and emails, which is very important to a client. Her support, attention to detail, and willingness to truly listen is emotionally refreshing.

This firm instills a great sense of pride and confidence in the work they do, and manage to carefully walk clients through their journey of mountainous paperwork.

In conclusion, I would recommend this firm because they have proven themselves to be professional, knowledgeable and credible. My experience was truly amazing.

My husband had a very complicated Adjustment of Status case, and we thought that we would never get our immigration situation sorted out until we met with Jennifer Durkin. My husband has a record from when he was a younger adult living in Europe. He also overstayed his travel visa after coming to the United States. We had visited with other lawyers in the past for initial consultations, but we did not like their bed-side manner and they scared us into thinking we did not have a chance. We were very lucky to find a supportive lawyer who is very knowledgeable in her trade

. Jennifer Durkin informed us about the waivers that would help our case if they were approved by USCIS. Jennifer was very available to reach by phone, email, or in person and I frequently contacted her. I have been under tons of stress for many years dealing with my husband's status, but Jennifer understood our situation and was able to put my mind at ease since we were able to trust her fully. It was very comforting to have had someone so qualified there for us throughout the entire immigration process, and it was wonderful having our lawyer in the interview room with us as she was so prepared with all our paperwork at hand. After all the years of worrying, my husband finally got his green card approved and we have Jennifer and her firm to thank for this success. Please do not put off filing immigration paperwork any longer due to fear, and when you are ready to start your case be sure to contact Jennifer's firm as they know their immigration law and you will be in great hands.

Fantastic immigration lawyer, highly recommend. I went to see Ms Jennifer Durkin after I married my American husband and we needed to arrange a green card for me. We found Ms Durkin to be highly friendly, open and honest with us. Her prices were reasonable and the whole process from start to finish only took 6 months. We are currently working with her again now to extend my green card and we will be going though her also when I apply for citizenship. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this law firm and in particular, Ms. Jennifer Durkin to anyone in need of an immigration lawyer. Pros: Friendly, easy going, efficient, honest.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help in bringing Jose home ... we could not have done it without you! You have truly been a blessing to us... Thanks for everything!

When me and my husband got married Jennifer helped us through the entire process, she was an amazing support and she made the journey simple and easy and calmed me when ever I was stressed out or worried. We could never have done it without her and I would highly recommend her to anyone who needs help with immigration issues. She is personable and sweet and knows exactly what she is doing, and she could not have taken better care of us. She was with us from our first application until I received my 10 year green card a month ago. I already recommended her to my best friend when she got married here in the us. We did thorough research before we settle on a lawyer, and I'm so happy that we found Jennifer. Her knowledge, her prices, her calm presence... she's the best out there.

As immigration goes, its never going to be enjoyable, but working with Richa made it as painless as possible. She made sure the paper work was filed out timely and expunged any fears and rumours I had heard about the process. She is not only capable but she provides the type of support that you need when going through the immigration process. We highly recommend her.
