I called several lawyers before I got to Rania and they all told me that my husband’s case was a lost cause and to just give up. Rania was the only one that gave me the time of day to hear his case and take it on. Not only did she work tirelessly to ensure she did everything to get my husband home she also helped me keep calm in very stressful situations. She didn’t just care that she was getting paid and I was just a client, but she cared for my family situation and wanted to do all that she can to reunite us again. And it worked. After 5 long months she was about to do the “impossible” and get my husband home without having to face deportation anymore. I will be forever grateful for all of her hard work and would recommend her to anyone I know that is going through a similar situation.
I have had a couple of lawyers before my current one, Meryem. Meryem is unlike any of the others though. She is amazing, professional, caring, and most of all, a good listener. She responds to my calls whenever, answers whatever questions I have, and follows up with me at an affordable price. Meryem has helped me tremendously in my divorce case, and has helped me find a job. I would highly recommend Meryem as a family lawyer.
