"Just wanted to let u know this is the best immigration experience I ever had. I have never seen such regular and proactive follow-up and response on immigration in any company I have worked so far."
"We could not be more pleased with ILG's work to support Juniper’s US Immigration needs. On a daily basis, they go above and beyond the call, providing superior service with a 'human touch'. It's this kind of dedication and customer service that differentiates ILG from other immigration law firms. We are delighted to be their client."
"I really want to THANK YOU [ILG] for all your support all these years. You have been great and extremely helpful every time I reached out to you. We are privileged to have you part of [Employer's] extended team."
"I would like to thank [ILG] for your outstanding services, I have worked with several attorneys in my GC journey and everyone pales in comparison to your work. Given the confusing nature of immigration laws, you folks have been very prompt and efficient in addressing all my concerns (be it for AC-21, AP, H1-B, RFE etc). Once again a big THANK YOU."
Immigration Law Group is a wonderful partner in our efforts to provide 'best in class' immigration service to our employees. They are readily available for phone conferences, and answer all our questions promptly. I highly recommend Immigration Law Group as an Immigration Attorney for any company, small or large.
Thank you so much. I commend you and your company for outstanding service to clients.

My sincere thanks to all of you once again for your outstanding support through the entire process - Truly, an Excellent Team!"
Immigration Law Group's flexibility in meeting our needs is extraordinary. Their attorneys and staff members have always made themselves available to us regardless of whether we call, email, or ask them to come to our company. ILG has become an integral part of our organization.
“The ILG team are consummate professionals who understand the needs of their customers, get the job done within tight timelines, and clearly have a passion for their craft. They are subject matter experts, but what truly sets ILG apart is that you are never made to feel as though your question is too big or too small, that your request (no matter how complex) is unreasonable, or that a deadline cannot be met. It is a pleasure to partner with ILG as our dedicated provider of immigration advisement and support.”
Thanks again to you and all the others who have helped me immensely in this process. After reading multiple forums, I must say that ILG’s process is one of the most streamlined and unambiguous and the people there are the most helpful.
Immigration Law Group provides TeleNav with invaluable services and support for all of our immigration matters. I am consistently impressed with their professionalism and customer service. I am able to outsource our immigrations needs and have confidence that they will not only treat our employees as one of their own but also handle each immigration case to the best of their ability.
We expect all vendors to offer the best prices and top service. Immigration Law Group has exceeded my expectations with their consistent on-time delivery, superior service, and excellent results. I really appreciate the dedication and hard work of the ILG team.
I have worked with many immigration firms in my career, and Immigration Law Group has been one of the best. I scrutinize every document before it is signed and I have never found an error in any of the documentation provided. I also appreciate the extremely fast turnaround times and the promptness in which your staff contacts me if anything is missing or needed. I never have to keep checking on the status of my cases. I also really appreciate the reasonable rates that you charge for the first class service provided.
We are a growing company with ever changing demands for personnel with different skill sets for varying geographic locations. ILG has always understood our requirements clearly especially technical qualifications of the positions and helped us to prepare effective documentation to satisfy the new regulations so we could acquire suitable resources needed for our growth. Their response to our demanding turn-around times has been extraordinary and the procedures in place to handle the paperwork have been really helpful.
Thanks a lot for the headsup, and thanks to everybody concerned for such efficient and timely execution.
The legal process is so much more expedient here than other places!!!
I have worked with a number of immigration attorneys in the last 18 years. No one even comes close to the kind of diligence you put into your work. I am truly amazed...
Thank you very much for all the detailed explanations, timely processing and well-informed responses over the past 2 years. This moment would not have been possible without your thorough efforts and zeal.
It has been a real pleasure working with your team and a sincere thanks once again from [my wife and I].
