Client Testimonials

“The attorney handled my NIW green card case with great efficiency and care. From drafting letters to helping me gathering the necessary documents I always received timely and accurate guidance. My case went perfectly smooth without RFE and I received my green card directly on the mail without interview. Would recommend this law firm to anyone.”


“I worked with other law firm for my Eb2 NIW, which was a little frustrating to me. So, I chose Tigris Legal for my consular processing. I would say I should have chosen Tigris for my I-140 application. Quick responses, hard work, adequate advice etc.”
