I am beyond grateful to Nkechi and her incredible team for their exceptional representation in my immigration case. From the very beginning, Nkechi’s dedication and expertise gave me hope that all was not lost, even after facing a denial for my permanent residency adjustment from USCIS. She worked tirelessly on my behalf, always displaying the utmost professionalism and compassion. Nkechi’s deep knowledge of immigration law and her strategic approach were truly impressive. Her commitment towards my case was unparalleled, and her genuine care and concern made all the difference in my case being approved. This firm is deserving of 6 stars and is 100% trusted with your immigration issues.

The Gillman Immigration Law Firm worked with my now husband and I, on our K1 visa! From start to finish, everything was great! However, I want to highlight our paralegal, Alejandra. She is AMAZING! She was dependable, responsive and a pleasure to work with. She helped make our experience here great! Also, the entire process was quicker than what I anticipated! If you’re thinking about hiring GILF, do not hesitate, just do it!

Firstly I must say, I have never written a public review in my entire life until now. From the very first interaction I was completely blown away, they are the epitome of professional. The entire team is thorough, thoughtful, friendly and hardworking. I can wholeheartedly say they do have your best interest at heart. I have struggled with immigration for some time and with this team I have been so confident. They keep you posted and check in on you to ensure that you are doing you part of the work. I highly recommend then to anyone one to hire them, it’s a great investment. Shout out to Marlen, she was the first person I spoke with and it was from that moment I knew I would have a great team behind my case!!!!!

The experience and services provided by the Gillman Law Firm were amazing and professional on every level. You stood by our side every step of the way. I cannot express how grateful we are. Thank you for helping us through this journey and bringing us out successfully. I pray that God continues to bless this company as it grows and continues to help immigrants the way you all so wonderfully do. With my experience, I want to advise people out there to take your time and get a good law firm to help you through this journey. And I will recommend Gillman Law Firm to you because, with my experience with using people who are in the business of filling out paperwork, it's going to cause you, in the end, more and a lot of stress because they are not lawyers and cannot help or represent you in any way in case of any issue. So please be wise and don't make the same mistake I did. But thank God for Gillman Law Firm, they go above and beyond for their clients.
