I do not know where to start but i will say this, Thank you to the whole Sarimento”s Immigration firm ( JP, Glen, Arty). This is my third Immigration lawyer i have had and the difference is clear based on experience and professionalism. I was in a very difficult situation. I had a final order of deportation from 2003, i retained the services of SARIMENTO immigration. He was able to reopened my case from a final order. In addition to that he was able to get me a stay of deportation from the court.

We later on filed an I-130 which was approved months later. He later on filed a motion to terminate with the court that i was ordered deported. That motion was also approved. After that approval we filed a from i-485 to permanently register me as a green card holder. Subsequently my application got approved on the spot.

A great lawyer is welled informed, an outstanding lawyer is able to calm your nerves where there is no hope. These are few of the great attributes i received from the Sarimento Law Firm. Without them i would have been deported, not only did he exercise great knowledge about immigration laws and procedure, he focused on the success of my case as if it was the only assignment he had. When ever i had doubts he had an answer for me, necessarily maybe it wasn’t the answer i was looking but it was the best advice that a great lawyer would offer to a client

He did not only treat me as a client i felt a great connection with his firm. I was treated more as a family. For that i am ever grateful to the services and result i received from his firm. Thank you. Posted by AC, November 2017.

Both my husband and I were so thankful for JP’s service’s! We’d heard all the immigration horror stories! Within 3 months of filing I was approved! I was given a full time job at a law office the day my permanent residency card came in the mail! JP was helping us step of the way! Don’t go it alone! Go with JP! Posted by Sarah, November 2017.

This is my first time to deal with the legal system especially in a foreign country and I have never been so happy with Atty. Sarmiento and his team. He walked me through what’s going to happen and he is very easy to get in touch with; responded to all my questions within 24 hours. I bet there is a lot of immigration lawyers out there but this one is genuinely professional. Every dollar well spent. I am grateful that I found your firm. Only firm that I would reccommend.:) Posted by JCC, November 2017.

For those of you who are looking for Immigration lawyer this is the man for you. He will fight for you and stand by you until the process is finished. He will delivered. In my case I have been talking with several lawyers and most of them said My case is complex because I have been over stay my student visa over 16 years. They told me I should not even considering doing consular processing. Also most of the lawyers said I am a i 601 case and suggest that I should wait for the immigration reform. But MR. Sarmiento suggested otherwise. He said it could be done. At first I was a little bit afraid and nervous who would not be right. But I give it a go anyway. I hired him and here I am back in the US as a Perminent residence. The result is priceless. Thank you. Posted by an immigration client, October 2017.

Sarmiento Law Firm is the best I have ever worked with. This firm is easy to work with, easily accessible and their prices are so reasonable it makes any immigration process you are working on worthwhile. Sarmiento Firm helped me with the process of applying for a work permit visa ( H1-B) and I must say the application process was as smooth and effective as possible. This same law firm helped me tremendously with my green card application and as usual, the process went very well and my green card was approved after a couple of months. I highly recommend this firm to anyone dealing with immigration issues. I worked with this Law firm and I feel that is one of the best experiences of my life. Try Sarmiento Law Firm for your immigration cases and I promise you will never regret this experience. Posted by Quincy Darko, October 2017.

Sung Hee (Glen) Yu, provided us with a Immigration service that I would (actually have) recommended to friends. He was very professional who took our application all the way to green card. While the application was being processed, he would keep reminding us of things we’d have to do. Even after the processing he called us a couple times to inform/suggest the next few things we’d have to do, to get everything in order.

Thank you Glen, for taking care of our application processing. I highly recommend Glen and Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm. Posted by Prasanna Bhattarai, October 2017.

JP was very helpful to my husband and I. I called around to multiple different immigration attorneys and he was the only one willing to answer all my questions over the phone. He also made my husband very comfortable with him by answering his questions through email. He was very easy to get in contact with when we had a question, he also responded in a timely manner through email. Posted by daniel bruce, October 2017.

My husband and I had applied for a green card with the help of the Sarmiento firm and the whole process went really smoothly. Our lawyer, Glen Yu, was extremely helpful and I am really happy that we hired him. Even though he and I had never met in person, we had no problem communicating with each other by email/phone calls. If you want a caring and competent law firm with a reasonably priced fee, look no further! I’d definitely recommend them to friends/colleagues that have any immigration needs.

Sarmiento Law Firm has a lot of experience working with J-Waiver application cases, and this shows in their service. The whole process on the law firm side is very organized and well documented -in terms of what documents are needed , how the application process will be, what are legal and application fees involved, what are the timelines involved, etc.

Any queries and emails are promptly addressed and replied to. Updates are sent on the status of the case at each stage.

All of this made it really easy for me to go through the waiver application process and I am thankful to the law firm to represent me for the same. Posted by Mansi Bhatt, August 2017.

I had a consultation about filing an application for citizenship. He was quick to respond and during the consultation he was very clear about the steps, timeline, and how much the process would cost.

I know Sarmiento Immigration Law from my friend who also got green card by JP’s help. I had very good experience for my green card application. He is a very efficient person who always reply my question in 24 hours. Besides, his attorney fees is very reasonable compare to some big city.

Sung Hee Yu (Glen Yu) helped me fill out the J2 waiver and green card application. He has been quick in his email responses and has a thorough knowledge of the immigration process. Every step of the process he was readily available through email/phone. Furthermore, he contacted USCIS on behalf of my application because the decision was talking a long time. I would definitely recommend him for immigration related applications. Posted by Hyunkoo Chung, May 2017.

I was looking for a lawyer to help me and my husband our with adjustment of status and immigration based on marriage. I used to live in NJ and I spoke to a couple of lawyers there whose fees were really high. Fortunately for me, I moved to Cleveland and found JP Sarmiento. I sent him an e-mail and I was amazed with his advice so I decided to hire him. His fees were extremely reasonable and his communication was great. He kept us informed of every step and replied to our emails promptly. Our case was handled with care and in a fast manner. One of the lawyers came with us on interview day and we also had a small prep session before. We are happy to have our petition accepted and we would recommend JP Sarmiento to anyone looking for the best representation. Posted by Karyna Neyra, May 2017.

Sarmiento Law Firm has been an invaluable help to my wife and I throughout her immigration process. The thing that stuck out to me the most was the haste at which they responded to every and any question that I had. If I sent them an email full of questions, they’d get back to me often in less than an hour with answers. I greatly appreciated the free consultation about our unusual situation, and did not hesitate to hire them to represent us and handle our case once we began regular correspondence. They always seemed to know what to do, and they had a great deal of experience with all of the situational questions that I had. The only problem that I had with this otherwise stellar firm was that our case received 2 requests for evidence due to insufficient documentation given. This delayed our case for about 3 months. I would have expected that an experienced firm should have known that some of the documents that we sent them weren’t acceptable, or that we should have included more evidence of the relationship between my wife and I. I was very disappointed that we got these delays, and my wife and I would really love to have those 3 months back. But aside from this, the firm was everything I could have hoped for. They were quick to respond, always gave relevant and helpful information, knew what they were doing, and very professional. Thanks to JP and Arty, my wife and I were approved at our visa interview 2 days ago, after about a year and a half of waiting to get to this point. I would recommend using this firm if you are looking for someone to help with your case. You won’t regret it. Posted by Clayton Novak, April 2017.

My fiance and I had a unique situation. She met me in the US and had to go back to her home country. She had a 2 year restriction to stay in her home country but Mr. Sarmiento worked really hard and got that requirement waived. He stuck with us and answered all our questions over the last year and now my fiance has her visa. I can’t thank him enough. Posted by Dylan, May 2017.

I am forever grateful for the hard work that the team at Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm did in helping me to win asylum in the United States. I am very happy that I chose this law firm to represent me. Mr. Sarmiento gave me a free 60 minute consultation (which is unheard of with most attorneys). The payment plan was attractive as I was unable to pay the full cost at once. They did a great job in preparing my case and Mr. Glen Yu prepared me for my interview. However, I opted not to be accompanied to the asylum interview because of the additional expense and unfortunately my case was referred to the immigration court. I opted to have the Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm represent me before the immigration court. I was offered another payment plan which also included travel expenses. There were times when I was unable to pay on time and all I had to do was email the accounting department and they were very understanding. I had to move to another state and they quickly filed for my change of venue which was granted. I was represented by phone at my master calendar hearing at which point I was schedule for my individual hearing. Mr. Yu prepared me for my individual hearing and also accompanied me to the immigration court. I was granted asylum with the outstanding help of the Sarmiento team. I would highly recommend the Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm to anyone who needs immigration legal representation. They are a team of professionals who genuinely work in the best interest of their clients. A+++++ Posted by Deneil Christian, March 2017.

My husband and I were so happy of the assistance we get from Atty. Sarmiento and his staff. from the first time we call him on the phone to inquire about my immigration status and until the time my application for green card has been approved. He has always been on top of everything. there is also a time that we are asked for a request for evidence and when I called on his office, to my surprise they already comply. I find my experience with immigration very easy and smooth. as always He is very diligent to answer our queries and very reassuring that everything will be fine. We are also impressed that his estimate timeline is so accurate. my husband and I were also very appreciative that they provide us with a briefing before the interview and being there with us during our interview.

It is my pleasure to recommend JP and Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm in respect to their professional service. From my initial consultation email, until the approval of my permanent status three years later. JP and Sarmiento Law were always attentive and prompt in answering my emails and many questions. JP and his team were highly supportive on what was a difficult and drawn out application, which included a number of immigration interviews held in Florida. All filings were done promptly and professionally. Legal fees were trasparant and reasonable. Having worked in the legal sector in my home country (United Kingdom), I can attest that the service provide by Sarmiento Immigration Law was equal to that of some of London’s more prestigious law firms.

My asylum case could not succeed without Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm. JP, Glen and Arty have been with me since the first day of my asylum application, throughout the entire 3 and a half years of the case duration. During the process, they not only diligently filed my application, but also helped me with every aspect of the case. JP has always been answering my questions promptly and efficiently, even though some of my questions were repetitive, JP never lost patience and was always ready to respond and help, not to mention his mastery legal expertise and knowledge. Glen represented me during my asylum interview and court hearing, he travelled to Newark and New York particularly for my case on the days of freezing winter and snow storms and never complain. His valuable court room experience ensured my success not only because of Glen’s legal expertise, but also his knowledge to the personality and preferences of each immigration judges, which could be deciding factors of winning a case. During the hard 3.5 years of my case, my attorneys at Sarmiento Immigration Law firm never lost confidence and were always encouraging and determined to work out the best result for me, even during the time when I was frustrated and beaten up. Arty, the senior paralegal, tirelessly prepared documents for my asylum filings, applied my annual work permit renewals for 4 years (she even communicated with USCIS when my EAD was experiencing delay), translated my evidence articles, Posted by Jeffery Fu, January 2017.

I took the E-11 I-140/I-485 journey with attorney JP for a year, for some it may look longtime, but attorney JP is not like other attorney’s which I have come across, he is a great story teller and had the niche to grasp highly complex scientific fields and reflect it in the brief’s, how the client meets high demanding regulatory criteria in a way IO understands, and top of that he will make it RIGHT. He is highly professional with excellent ethical standards and never hesitates to take that extra mile and 99.9% prompt in responding emails, and same with his team.

My family and I have used Mr. Sarmiento’s services for our family’s immigration needs.

I was a physician in training when I started (myself was a US-born citizen) but got married overseas. Mr. Sarmiento offered affordable terms for our case (helping my wife immigrate to the US). He was also very diligent in pursuing it to its completion. He was quick to reply by email and he/his staff are easy to reach about questions and issues.

We have been very happy with him, and have used his services for several other family members since. Posted by Baseer , December 2016.

I have been working with this firm and JP since 2012 for my immigration progress. The communication between me and the lawyer was always smooth. He is reliable, and provide you the answers that u have questions for. Overall, he did a great job and brought great results as well. Posted by an immigration client, December 2016.

We hired Attorney JP after months of looking for an immigration lawyer to tackle our case. Personally meeting up with the top-reviewed immigration lawyers in Miami and speaking to other highly-reviewed immigration lawyers across the United States, offered us very little hope on keeping our family together, as all but one law firm (other than JP’s) was willing to take on our case. They all advised us that my wife should just go back to our home country and wait there.

I was pending AOS, EB-2, priority date in 2006, and had been waiting for years for approval of my case. In 2010, while waiting for approval, I got married to my girlfriend, and she would visit me for 6 months at a time. She would never overstay and she never worked, never violating the terms of her tourist visa. In 2014, with one child added to our union, my case got approved, and I asked the law firm that filed my case how to get my wife to be able to stay with me permanently (as she was visiting at the time). They did not want to help. And told us bluntly to just send her home. And that got us looking for help elsewhere.

Not only was Attorney JP confident that our case was one that was not violating immigration law (which was amusing, because everybody else was scared that it might be), he was also very humble, and spoke to us in a tone and manner not depicting his superior knowledge over immigration law. He is out of state (Ohio), but we chose him to represent us because we had a very good feeling about him. He was so confident about it that if the case was to be denied, he was going to appeal the case free of charge.

All throughout the 2 years that we had been waiting, Attorney JP was very easy to contact, and was always on top of renewing my wife’s EADs. Not once did he charge anything for the correspondence between our case and Immigration. He stayed humble and kind, and we always felt as if he was doing us a favor. Unlike the law firm that filed my original case, where I felt as if I was a nuisance to them, even if they were constantly charging me with ridiculous fees.

For reference, whenever I called the law firm that filed my case about my case, the paralegal would never talk to me. I would leave her voicemails, and emails, and she would get back to me a week later. The lawyer taking care of my case seemed very unprofessional and the few times I was able to catch her on the phone in the 8 years I had been waiting, she talked to me very hurriedly, hardly giving me answers to my inquiries. Far cry from Attorney JPs firm, he would try to answer as much as he could, and the few times that I had to leave voicemails, he would respond the very same day, via email and callback.

Now with 2 kids, our family is living together and is very happy, and will forever be grateful to God for helping us find Attorney JP. We hope all those who are having immigration problems will try to give JP a call, because he absolutely knows immigration law, and he is very genuine in his pursuit to try to help other people. I wouldn’t be surprised if one day he just starts helping people for free. Yes, he is that good, and that kind. Posted by Paolo , December 2016.

My attorney stayed on point and has been very effective through out my case. His advice and guided points led to my success in achieving Political Asylum in the United States. His communication and knowledge of career is perfect, and I will never hesitate to refer someone to him that needs the help that I needed. Going forward, me and my three year old daughter can never thank him and his staff enough for paving our narrow path to a great success in life. My life and that of my family could never have been much better in the United States without his efficient and effective service. Last but not the least, he is a devoted and kindhearted person.

Great service from the beginning to the end. Both JO and his assistant Arty were super nice and answered all our questions (we had a lot of questions). They made the process so simple for us. We were very nervous about the whole process but they surely brought some peace of mind my educating us and suggesting what would be good for our situation. They went above and beyond from my expectations. They were very well organized and were ahead of schedule the entire time. My wife got her VISA in 6 month (partially because she had to get her passport renewed). Posted by William, October 2016.

Hired atty JP as recommended by my US employer to handle my visa priority date recapture case. From the very onset of initial consultation, atty Sarmiento was very detailed and thorough in providing explanations, and giving assistance with any issues that arise in my case. He also facilitated setting up my case for my recent marriage, making sure the DS260 was filed correctly. His firm went the extra mile in giving me tips assistance before my interview. I had a 221g JO issue post interview and he worked real fast to to prepare the necessary paperwork work and just 2 days upon embassy submission of the revised JO, the visas for me & my wife were approved. Highly recommended!
I would always recommend his firm without second thought for immigration concerns. The high amount of attention and proper handling my case got is disproportionate to the very, very reasonable fee he requested. Kudos to you atty! Thank you! Posted by Christian Albert , October 2016.

Attorney Sarmiento and his team make dream become true. I have been in this country many years and was not always given proper advices.
I found Sarmiento immigration law firm through a friend of mine that had heard about him. I immediately read the reviews and thought i could have hope again.
I reached out for help on applying for green card,and explained past experiences and failures.
Mr. Sarmiento replies on emails within minutes, cares about your case,provides steps, and encourages you.
I130 request was filed and approved within 3 months(by the way, that was not 1st time i have applied) due to his great guidance and professionalism. I now have to file for i485 adjustment of status, which i hope will go well.
I do want to point that there is NO WAY YOU WOULD GET AN ATTORNEY CONSULTATION FOR FREE , BUT JP DOES JUST THAT!
Thanks sir, God bless you. Posted by an Immigration Client, October 2016.

After close to one year of searching for a suitable attorney, and just when I was on the brink of giving up, I stumbled upon Mr. Sarmiento’s Immigration Law Firm. I immediately knew that I was in good hands as soon as I contacted his office. He is a professional of immense knowledge, politeness, he is easily accessible and very straightforward. We got working right away, submitted the application in August, and received the approval by end of September. On top of everything, he allowed me to pay in installments. I am so highly pleased and thankful and would recommend Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm to anybody seeking help with J1/J2 and all other immigration matters. Quite frankly, I doubt anybody beats his fee + high-level services. Thank you Mr. Sarmiento and your highly efficient team!!! Posted by Kinda Lira, October 2016.

I hired Mr. Sarmiento so my husband could become a permanent resident. The services were prompt and excellent in quality. He was prepared, knowledgeable about the immigration laws and quick to respond to our questions. Highly recommended! Posted by an immigration client, September 2016.

JP Sarmiento did an excellent job with the process of my wife and her son (my step son) who are already living with me. Their green card was successful, with attorney present in the interview with us, it made things more easy for me as even the questions were stress free. The green card for my wife’s two daughter, one the elder daughter has been approved, and we are still in wonder why the younger girl’s approval is still pending. We looking up to our able JP Sarmiento law firm to complete this good job for us.
The bottom line of this review is my wife was the person who found this JP Sarmiento firm online, she had no doubt, while I trusted her judgement and today we have no (regrets) as we still completely trust JP to get us the green card approval of the youngest girl, and we can’t wait to welcome our girls into America soon.
My wife and I recommend this JP Sarmiento firm for anyone who needs immigration or citizenship services.
JP is RELIABLE, TRUSTED and DO GOOD JOB.

If you’re looking for someone to handle your immigration case, I highly recommend Mr. Sarmiento and his amazing team! I honestly cannot say enough praises about this law firm!

Just for clarification purposes, I am an American citizen, and my Indian husband was on a tourist visa visiting my family when we decided to apply for his green card. We found Mr. Sarmiento’s law firm to exceed our expectations in more ways than one.

For one thing, they are extremely reasonably priced. Many law firms will charge you in upwards of $300 just for an initial consultation, but Mr. Sarmiento provides this service free of charge. In addition, he also allows you to pay in installments, which worked wonderfully with our tight budget.

I was extremely appreciative of Mr. Sarmiento’s timeliness as well. He always responded to my emails within the same day, and always answered my questions thoroughly.

Mr. Sarmiento and his team maintained a top notch level of professionalism throughout our entire experience with his firm. From filing my husband’s green card application immediately after document assembly, to showing up ahead of schedule for our interview with USCIS. They went above and beyond the call of duty, which we found very impressive!

We are extremely pleased to say that my husband received his green card approval just this past week, and owe this success to Mr. Sarmiento and his team. Posted by Lauren Honigford, August 2016.

He is a great lawyer and works with me so much on my case! Posted by Kendra R, July 2016.

Overall, great experience and I highly recommend them. :)
Everything was clear. He asks you for basic information and he does the rest. Also, they have a good and clear payment plan.
Previously, I talked to many attorneys, most of them had no knowledge of J-2 waiver (21 or older) case. They just want to charge me for something that was the wrong way to begin.
However, gladly, I decided to contact the Sarmiento office and talk to Juan Sarmiento. I trusted him because of the success stories that I saw on his website. I applied for the waiver on May 26 and got the Approval Notice ( wavier was granted by DOS and USCIS) in July 7th. They are better than other attorneys in terms of their fee as well. They have monthly payment plan which is what I needed because the previous lawyer ripped me off.
Again overall, great experience and I highly recommend Mr. Sarmiento. Posted by Amir Rahimi, July 2016.

I would give Atty. JP 5 stars for all the efforts he and his whole firm put to get my case approved. I got my green card approval sooner than expected. He filed my petitions (I-765 and I-485) Sept of last year and I was able to get positive results from the immigration after 3 months for both cases, I-765 first then 2 weeks later, the I-485. I would definitely recommend Atty JP to those who are still looking for a highly competent immigration lawyer. (By the way, he is the only immigration lawyer I know, by far, who gives free consultation. I have been sending him inquiries by email for like 2 months and he consistently replied, I even told him I was willing to pay for the consultation since I have been asking so many questions about how to keep my status in US and he told me to just keep sending emails if I have more concerns and that his consultation is ALWAYS FREE. ) Thank you Atty. JP! I owe you my future. Posted by Marie, January 2016

The immigration law firm of J.P. Sarmiento facilitated the process for obtaining a K-1 visa for my Colombian fiancé. Their overall service was excellent. Mr. Sarmiento and his staff were always cordial, very professional, and very detail-oriented, providing explanations for procedures at each step of the process. At several points, a period of time had elapsed for various technical reasons. The Sarmiento team provided gentle inquiries and reminders, making sure to keep the process moving ahead successfully. They were very adept at ‘trouble-shooting’. In summary, I credit the success in obtaining my fiancé’s visa to the professionalism of the Sarmiento firm. I would not hesitate to hire the firm on another occasion, and I will always recommend the firm to others. Posted by an immigration client, January 2016

Awesome experience with JP law firm. He and paralegal helped me a lot for my changing status case. I got the USCIS reply so quick! Thanks so much for everything. Posted by Chelsea Xin, June 2015.

After completing my education program, I was on the look out for a competent, trustworthy and friendly immigration lawyer/firm. After contacting some friends they recommended J.P Sarmiento Immigration Law firm. He offered me a free consult and then gave me a preview of what my case will entail. I chose to retain his firm for my case and I could not have got a better deal. He was/is affordable and very detailed in the way he presented my case and needless to say my case was a success. Choose JP Sarmiento Law Firm any day for your immigration needs. Posted by Mike, June 2015.

Outstanding client orientation and service. I had an uncommon case and JP handled it with equally uncommon attention, thought and care.

I am the president of a small business in the Philippines and wanted to set up an office of my company in the US. JP helped me figure out the best visa to get given my specific circumstances and business targets. Our company is too small to meet the investment and employment requirements of an investor visa so we decided to go for a relatively unorthodox route that involved registering a subsidiary of my company in the US and applying for an intracompany employee transfer to establish the new office. This involved a lot of pre-application work such as registering the company, setting up a bank account, securing an office, getting a tax ID, etc. — JP guided me through all of it. The application itself was presented very well and properly highlighted the points of our case.

JP and his associates are also fast. Every time I emailed anyone in his firm a question I got a thorough answer in less than 12 hours — and that’s because I live in Manila. I’m sure clients in the US get answers almost instantly. That’s a sure indicator or how dedicated Sarmiento Immigration is to its clients. And when it came to putting together the applications (we submitted a follow up to the initial one), JP had detailed and well-written cases within a couple of days of my giving them all the exhibits that they asked for.

JP obviously has a great understanding of what the USCIS looks for in applications and our visa approval is testament to their effectiveness. We got our visas but even if we did not I would still give JP and his firm 5 stars for its exceptional client attention. If you want your lawyer to put their heart into your application and make you feel like your case is as important to him as it is to you then JP Sarmiento is the guy to work with.

I will always be grateful for Atty. Sarmiento for helping me to get my J1 No Objection Waiver. All through out the process , He gave me a clear advise with no false promises. He is prompt to respond to my inquiries, and I was surprised that even during weekends he would reply to my e mails. The legal fee is also cheap, it is cheaper compared with what the paralegals in Los Angeles are charging.

Let me give a background of my case for whoever is reading this can get a small nuggets of information. I came here in the United States 2007 with a J1 Visa with a two years home residency requirement. After leaving my training sponsor 2008, I decided to stay and be out of legal status. I stayed in California and had consultations with different lawyers. I spent a lot of money seeking for the right legal representation, but to my frustration, Im advise that my case is impossible to apply for a No Objection Waiver.

Since 2008, I have to deal with the reality that Im Staying here in the US without legal authorization to work and im leaving a life of modern slavery, I have to accept whatever jobs that are available being paid less and working more hours just to get by.

I got married 2012 to a US citizen. My husband applied for a I 130 Petition for me July 2014 and it was approved August 2014. With an approved petition, I was advised to apply for a visa in my home country, Philippines, and ones get approved we will file for a Hardship Waiver (confusing and complicated???) While waiting for my I 824 approval , a friend recommended Atty. Sarmiento, it was hard to trust at first because I did not meet him in person, Atty Sarmiento is from Ohio and Im in California. All i can rely to are excellent reviews in the internet. After retaining Atty. Sarmiento as my legal representative December 2014, I eventually received an approval of No Objection Waiver for my J1 visa May 2015. Bravo to an excellent job Atty. Sarmiento.

JP Sarmiento law firm is the best as far as I am concerned. This is because of the deep knowledge and understanding of the US immigration issues regardless of the turns and twists cases may take. Mr. Sarmiento is always passionate, positive, aggressive and conclusively decisive when it comes to what’s to be done. I had two critical RFE during the whole process, but he came through on both occasions with immense tact and knowledge. I felt I was his only client he had because of the way he handled my case and I believe you would feel the same too. Posted by an immigration client, June 2015.

Atty. JP Sarmiento is by far the best immigration attorney I have encountered, even though we live in the Chicagoland area I chose his law firm to represent my father on his N400 application. Before talking to Atty. JP, I’ve reached out to several different Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco attorneys (who were Super Lawyers by the way) but I have gotten mixed advice, some say my father should not even apply for naturalization due to the previous misrepresentation on his green card application at the US Embassy level, some say there’s a chance however fairly slim that he would be approved since his case is complex and that he would probably be deemed inadmissible and later put in deportation proceedings if denied. Atty. JP did not hesitate to take on this challenge, he prepared my father rigorously from the application process to the arguments he presented, he’s very detailed and to the point. Atty. Glen Yu and Arty have also helped me and my father throughout the entire process. Everyone in the firm works tirelessly for their clients.

Atty. JP himself responds to emails, questions and phone calls within reason — the same day! No lawyer I have known who cares for his clients like he did for us. His fees are very reasonable and much less than most immigration law firms I dealt with in the past.

It took a lot of planning, preparation and courage to develop a winning strategy, now my father will be sworn in as a new citizen of the United States in a couple of weeks…. that’s all made possible because of Atty. JP’s hard work, determination and exceptional knowledge of immigration law!

I highly recommend Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm, their lawyers are a few of the best lawyers in the US immigration arena! Posted by Jerald, May 2015.

Mr.JP is an awesome attorney. I did the status changing case through him, and got a wonderful fast result from USCIS. He is super helpful, patient attorney, and draw a strong reply letter for my case.

I really appreciate for his help. Also, Ms.Arty, the senior paralegal, she is so nice and patient to my case, and reply my questions quickly. Thanks! Posted by an immigration client, May 2015.

We consulted another lawyer before we Atty Sarmiento, and after talking with him, we decided to go with him to process my Permanent Residency Application by marriage coming from an H visa (waiver). We are most impressed with Atty Sarmiento’s work ethics, professionalism and efficiency. He gave clear instructions, was always available despite the difference in time-zones, and honest regarding possible outcomes.

The green card application got approved, thanks to Atty Sarmiento! I knew we were in good hands from the beginning. Posted by Janjan, April 2015.

WITHOUT MINCING WORDS JP SARMIENTO IMMIGRATION LAW FIRM IS GREAT, COMPETENT, TRUSTWORTHY, EFFICIENT AND FAIR. THE HUMAN RELATIONSHIP WITH CLIENT IS SUPERB. JP AND HIS TEAM HAVE DISPLAYED PROFESSIONALISM ON MY CASE. THE SERVICE CHARGE IS MINIMUM WITH FREE CONSULTATIONS. THE LAW FIRM HAS PASSION FOR IMMIGRATION NEEDS.
I THEREFORE STRONGLY RECOMMEND JP SARMIENTO IMMGRATION LAW FIRM. Posted by Martin, March 2015

I strongly recommend JP Sarmiento Law Firm!!! They are far by far the best in the business! I must have called and emailed them over a thousand times asking questions and they always had a quick response. I have heard many stories of people having horrible immigration lawyers that make false promises and then take your money without really helping you and that’s why I am so thankful for JP and his teams of professionals they have never steered us wrong and they were always there for us. When talking to them over the phone or on Skype you can tell that they really care about your case and they really do everything to help you with it. Posted by Christopher Bird, March 2015.

Not only can we compliment the service, but our immigration officer did as well. They told us that JP Sarmiento Law Firm did a great job preparing the documents. JP personally handled the case with the help of his associates later on. They are very professional and responded to all my questions quickly thereby giving us assurance and peace of mind during the entire process of my case, from the waiver of 2 year residency to permanent resident approval. We have, and will continue to recommend this firm to all our family and friends who need help in immigration cases. Posted by Dyan, March 2015.

Like everyone else posting their experiences with Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm, mine was as great as theirs. I tried to ask different law firms near where I live, as many as possible to get their opinion regarding my case but only JP was the one who gave me answers as fast as he can(This is due to the time difference) for free. I only communicate with him through emails, that time, and he responds to all queries that I have everyday until he was able to explain to me all the things regarding my case. I got married to a US citizen with a B1 visa and all the while I thought that having an old J1 visa from my country would be a hindrance in my green card application. JP, amongst everyone, is the only lawyer who explained and asked to me in detail the things that are written in my J1 visa. He did all of that even before we hired him. When my husband and I decided to go with their Law Firm everything went smooth from the day we started the application until my green card application was approved. Jp and his team handled my case very well because they always update me when they receive notices from the Immigration regarding my case. I would not hesitate to recommend and hire their firm, if there are any immigration case that I would need to file again. Posted By Janine, March 2015.

JP was very professional and efficient. He answered all my questions right away, identified possible setbacks, I recommend JP because the following:

1- initial free consultation
2- prompt response to all of my queries
3- friendly attitude
4- reasonable and fare financial plan
5- professional approach to handling case

Finally i thank JP and his team for there efforts in my case and will recommend them always.  Posted by an Immigration Client, February 2015.

I have known Attorney JP Sarmiento for few years. When I became eligible to apply for citizenship through the naturalization process, I called JP without a second thought, and he fulfilled all my expectations without any doubt. During this short process, he again demonstrated his professionalism, reliability and availability. I would highly recommend JP to anyone in need of immigration services. Thank you JP for good service, and I wish you much success.  Posted by an Immigration Client, March 2015.

I recently hard my J1 hardship waiver approved with help of Sarmiento Immigration Firm.Before consulting JP, I had consulted with some of the top attorneys in the field, and most of them told me that I did not have a case. But after talking with JP, not only his professionalism wowed me, but his prices were reasonable. Way less than what I was going to pay those top lawyers. Well, I must say, my J1 hardship waiver was approved by USCIS in about 3 months. JP was always available by phone and email to answer all my questions promptly.He is quick to listen and would offer you the best advise. I plan to use him for future filings and would highly recommend him. Posted by Chsritine, February 2015.

Because of my complex immigration case i consulted a well known law firm prior to Atty. Sarmiento and found out that i have a chance of fixing my status. Unfortunately, i cannot afford to hire their services, so i looked for another law firm who can assist me on my case. Luckily, i found Atty. Sarmiento who does free consulation and things began to changed. I contacted Atty. Sarmiento and he responded to me right away, he was very approachable. So after i read his educational background and all the positive immigration reviews i was convinced to hire him. Atty. Sarmiento is very reliable, dependable and not a money making lawyer, he has a dedication to his proffession and i thank him for that.  Posted by an Immigration Client, January 2015.

JP and Arty were a great in helping with my sponsorship and application for a CR-1 visa for my wife. They responded quickly and concisely to all of our many questions and broke down our action items in a way that was logical and easy to follow. My wife also appreciated the one-on-one interview prep. I would highly recommend JP an Arty and will surely seek to use their services again if the need arises. Posted by Joe, January 2015.

From our first meeting, in our subsequent contacts, and in the pre-trial hearing, Mr. Sarmeniento’s manner was professional and suited to the circumstances. He made himself accessible, both by e-mail and by phone. His responses were prompt. He proved to be sincere and forthright. The conclusion of our dealings with him? We were granted asylum.  Posted by George, January 2015.

Nothing i can say will lead you to believe how happy it made someone who’s cases were nearly impossible to reopen. I called many local attorneys in fresno, CA and was told there was a 3/4 chance i was going to be shut down and that i was asking for too much. I Googled similar cases day and night upon learning that three of my I-130 petitions for my siblings had been admin closed or denied due to abandonment years ago, 5 years ago. I was not notified by USCIS and never told when would call in for the 9 years it showed up as processing online. As a last resort i called JP who is across America from me and he calmly walked me through the process he went through for a former client who was in the same boat as me. Sure enough after a year of each case being taken action on, all 3 cases are reopened and APPROVED. I can never thank this man for what he and his team did for me. They saved me from having to reapply for them and totalling an approximate 25 years of waiting for them to come to the states. You would be wasting your time t go with any other attorney than JP and his team. Posted by Jasroop Dhillon, November 2014.

During my physician-in-training period, I got married overseas. I decided that I wanted the help of an attorney rather than to try to tackle the daunting task of applying for my wife’s visa and permanent resident status myself.

I found JP, and he was incredible. Very helpful, very responsive, punctual and really worked with my schedule and financial situation at the time. I would highly recommend him and in fact, plan to return for my wife’s naturalization process now. Posted by B Ahmad, November 2014.

Atty JP and his staff has been very helpful and accomodating to me and they were very responsive in all my questions. My experince with them has been very pleasant. Posted by Joevel, October 2014.

Attorney Sarmiento provided me with free consultation via phone and email and answered all questions in detail before obtaining his services. I was an international student on OPT with a MSN Nurse Practitioner degree. Unlike most immigration lawyers I’ve talked to, he has handled cases on changing status from F1 to permanent residency via EB2 scheduled A.
After finding a willing sponsor, Attorney Sarmiento handled my case with patience and professionalism. He responded to the RFE’s very clearly and in detail.

The lawyer fees are very reasonable and relatively lower than most other lawyers I’ve inquired about.

Highly recommended!

Thank you for everything, Attorney JP Sarmiento. Posted by an Immigration client, October 2014.

3 MTRs were done by JP for my 3 siblings that would’ve been left in India for another extra possible 15+ years it it wasn’t for JP. Our cases had been administratively closed as well as denied due to abandonment without me even knowing. I called him and he calmly explained to me how he had helped someone who previously went through the same situation. Out cases had been closed for 5 years. They only give you 30 days to reply to letters and I learned of my cases after continuous phone calls all those years wondering why online my cases still said “processing” next to them. All in all, he made the impossible possible. I called many lawyers and they all said tbere was no chance of the cases still opening. He took the necessary paperwork and took action. First two opened after 5 1/2 months and the last case opened about a year and one month later, all three were approved. I’ve never been happier to receive a letter in the mail.

My case description is in his website. I am proud to say that I am now one of Attorney JP’s success story. I am the client from Michigan. I retained his firm’s services, July 2014 and not once did I regret this decision. My I-140 was approved October, 2014 without RFE.

I have my own share of horror stories with different immigration lawyers. Lawyers who ask for unreasonable fees, some will tell you upfront that there is a limitation to your inquiries even if you will hire their services, some who will advertise for a free consultation but will ask for a fee before they will answer your question and a particular lawyer who is downright rude with demanding for fees. It was a very frustrating experience. Almost made me give up…

I found Attorney JP in the internet. I read his success stories in his website. I availed of his free consultation. I sent numerous emails and he answered ALL of them WITHOUT holding anything back. This is what TRULY DEFINES FREE CONSULTATION. He is honest and very organized with his explanations in our exchange of emails. I have understood everything easily. And then he gave me a call… That sold me out! He was kind and very thorough with explaining the immigration laws that pertain to my case and most importantly the risks involved with my application. My case is “unique” as he described it.

All throughout the process of my I-140 application, I sent A LOT of inquiries and he answered each with kindness, patience and promptness. There are times I call him at the office and NOT ONCE did he gave an impression of irritability or impatience. And most importantly, he consistently kept me informed with the status of my case.

With regards to his expertise, I was impressed with how he handled and argued my application in legal writing. Simple yet POWERFUL. That’s the way to describe it. As proof, with premium processing, my I-140 was approved without RFE.

We have recently filed my application for permanent residency. Through the sincere hardworking character of Attorney JP, another dream came true. Thank you Attorney JP and your team for all your help. My dream would not be a possibility without your exemplary character, excellent work ethics and TRUE expertise in immigration law. Again, Maraming Salamat. Posted by Lala, October 2014.

I really had good experience with JP and his assistants. My green card case went smooth with their help and support. People who work their very responsible, knowledgeable, supportive, always respond to my emails. Thank you for my green card, now me and my husband can really plan a lot here in this country. Posted by Immigration client, September 2014.

It was really a phenomenal experience working with Sarmiento Law Firm. I hired them for my J1 visa waiver. The experience was totally satisfying and well worth the money I spent. They respond to email and call promptly and they really care for you. This is the kind of law firm that I am going to recommend to everyone. Also my case is special and the process took longer than was previously expected. But they work with me patiently and attentively and never ask me to pay more than what we have agreed. I think the fee is more than fair for the kind of service I get. For those of you who are wary and not knowing which immigration law firm to choose, Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm will definitely not let you down! Posted by Jacky Tiong, September 2014.

Atty. Jp Sarmiento is simply the best. It’s not easy for me to trust someone well esp. lawyers but when he helped me get my waiver for me to file the green card and he gave me all the info and always answer to all my emails, I knew then he is one of the few lawyers I can trust. Even my husband feels the same way with me when it comes to trusting lawyers because he had a bad experience. Atty. Jp has proven that he deserves our trust together with his associates. I would recommend his firm. I got my green card with ease. They are very professional and take their jobs seriously. Atty Jp Sarmiento definitely exudes my expectation.  Posted by Cherry, September 2014.

I would like to thank Atty. Jp and his associates. They are all very professional and honest with what they do (something you rarely see in a law firm, in my opinion of course). I rendered their service when I needed my J1 waiver and everything went smoothly and I got my waiver. The legal fee is very reasonable. He answers all my emails and every time I call his office and he is in a meeting, he would always call back. Then I filed for my green card and rendered his service again because of the success of the waiver. I got my Green card for about 5 months. Everything went smoothly, actually during the interview, the IO did not even ask us a lot of questions, and he has all the paperwork that he needs, very well prepared by Atty. JP’s law firm. I know that for some people being married with an american citizen should just be easy when it comes to getting a green card but hiring Atty Jp’s law firm and not have to worry about the paperwork and stuff, I would do it in a heartbeat. You cannot put a price on “stress” and atty jp’s firm is just great with what they do.  Posted by Myname Mine, September 2014.

I had Glen Yu from Sarmiento to file my US permanent residency application through NIW. Overall, the whole process went smoothly and it simply takes about five months for my wife and I to received our green cards after submission. Glen saved lots of my time on material preparation as he collected all the materials I sent to him via emails and mails and prepared all the application forms for us. He always has prompt response answering our questions and concerns.

My case involved a family based permanent residency application where the petitioner died before the priority date became current. I became aware of the new law that allowed beneficiaries to continue the permanent residency process even though the petioiner had died. I first spoke to another attorney who was willing to take my case but had no experience with this particular law. I found the Sarmiento immigration law firm after performing a web search for attorneys who had handled permanent residency cases where the petitioner had died. One of the success stories on the firms’ website described how the Sarmiento law firm had helped their client gain permanent residency using this particular law. At first ,I was a bit skeptical about hiring an attorney who was located hundred of miles away. I spoke to Mr. Sarmiento and was impressed with his knowledge and prior experience. I hired the Sarmiento law firm and they started to work on my case immediately. My I-485 was filed, the firm responded to the RFE’s and one of the attorneys traveled from Ohio to Atlanta to accompany me to my interview. Almost 10 years after the petitioner died and over 16 years since the petition was originally filed, my I-485 has been approved!  Posted by an Immigration client, August 2014.

I highly recommend JP Sarmiento to anyone who needs immigration related law services. I filed my J-2 waiver through his firm and it was an extremely positive experience. Two months ago, I was notified by my immigration lawyer that I was still subject to J-visa 2-year bar even though my father has already fulfilled his two years long time ago. This was a huge headache for me because I was about to submit my I-485 and this would make me ineligible for green card. My I-485 lawyer and his lawyer friends have never even heard of the fact that J-2 can apply for a waiver independent of J-1 under certain circumstances. I was desperate and was doing intensive internet research to find a solution to this problem. I found JP Sarmiento’s firm and another firm through the research. I reached out to both of them because I really do not have any other choices. JP responded the next day and answered all my questions directly but the other firm wanted to charge hourly consultation fees to provide answers. I was impressed by JP’s professionalism and willingness to help without me paying so I decided to file my case throug his firm. This is definitely a right decision I have made. He is very knowledgable and knows what he is doing. He prepared my case with great attention. During the entire process, he has been extremely responsive and professional. He always gets back to me quickly(usually within a day) with clear and honest answers. He submitted my case soon after I signed the contract with him and charged a reasonable fee. My case was approved yesterday. This proves that J-2 waiver is do-able through his firm. I definitely would go back to him for any future immigration service needs.  Posted by Jessica, August 2014.

First of all, I and my husband would like to thank “JP Sarmiento and his team” for helping us through my immigration process.
After thoroughly reviewing different law firm from the web within our limit, we retained “Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm”. From J1 waiver application to Green Crad application, they prepare all the requirements step by step.
They never hesitate to answer your questions whether by e-mail or phone. They are happy to explain something you do not understand. My green card was approved on the day of interview.
We are happy that we did the right and best choice. The team of “Sarmiento law Firm” is really wonderful!

After some years of disappointments with dishonest lawyers in NYC, I met JP Sarmiento doing some online research. I followed his excellent website and all his outstanding reviews. I emailed him with some questions no one answered me before, but JP was very responsive and compassionate during all this anxious time of my life. All I can say is that he is the most honest, compassionate, responsible and knowledgeable immigration attorney on the East Cost for me and HE DOES know exactly what he is doing………….He prepared my case 100% perfect and he was always very response as few lawyers in this country. He also has a very good office staff and everybody who works with him has been very responsible. Sarmiento Immigration is a very trustable immigration law firm on the East Cost and I highly recommend his office. My husband and I started our case in February in different state, after a few months we moved back to NYC and we requested our interview be scheduled in NYC. We finally got our interview (green card based on marriage to usc) on July 18 in NYC, everything went so perfect because JP prepared our case very well as well as all his advice which we always listened. We also had a good interview preparation from Attorney Glen (who works with JP). I got my passport stamped the same day and I was told that the card would be mailed to my address in 10 days. We live in NYC but me and my husband highly recommend JP Sarmiento Immigration to anyone who would like to find an outstanding, honest , responsive and knowledgeable immigration attorney. WIth JP you can be sure that you will get solved your case whatever your situation are. JP , thank you so much for being always nice, responsive, profissional and compassionate person, an outstanding human being and the best immigration attorney I ever met.

I found this lawyer, Mr. Sarmiento, from his website. His website gave you very detailed information and makes you feel you can trust him. My final approval on July 10th, 2014 for my J-2 application confirmed that he is an excellent and experienced lawyer. He helped me with answering my questions very positively and honestly and gathering the required documents with detailed instructions. Even after he heard I have two children and work for my PhD, he agreed to give me 20% discount on payment. I’m really glad I decided to let him be my lawyer and really appreciate his great help.  Posted by Yibulayin, June 2014.

JP is a great lawyer. He has a lot of experience in immigration and he is a cool guy. He always responds to all of my question promptly and he’s very articulate. He is a caring person, and his rates give you very good value for your money. A lot of other attorney’s try to charge you up to $10,000.00 just to show up in court but not JP. JP doesn’t take advantage of immigrants who are desperate. He’s more ethical than lawyers who claim, “they specialize in ethics”. Trust me, JP is a great guy. Posted by Francis, June 2014.

I was very please with Mr JP Sarmiento. performance in mine and my wife cases. My is at the US Embassy in Honduras Today and I feel she will be coming to United States Soon.

I have no negative comments about his performances. Posted by Donald, May 2014.

It was a great experience having Sarmiento Law Firm handle my wife’s case. They are extremely professional and very reliable. My wife’s naturalization case was complicated but Mr.Sarmiento and his firm handled it with great competence. The response they give to each and every question you can come up with is thorough and you get it in no time at all. I would definitely recommend them and am also hiring them for my immigration case.

My company hired Juan and his team to file my H1B petition. Juan is very helpful, responsive, and patient. Unlike the previous attorney who didn’t send out the application until I asked and was hardly talking to me, Juan sent me emails and always kept me informed about my case status(when the paperwork was done, when it would be sent, the tracking number, etc.). Juan and his team provide quality work and superb customer service. I highly recommend them. Posted by Mia, May 2014.

I am based out of New York and after meeting and reviewing in person with more than 10 -15 NY based law firm I felt that JP Sarmiento Law firm was the best choice. Even though they are based in Ohio; they were extremely helpful and always available to answer my questions.
They are genuinely take interest in the case and do an amazing job of keeping you abreast of the development.
Both Juan Sarmiento and his associate attorney Glen are very knowledgeable in immigration matters.
The best part is their affable manner and resourcefulness.

Greatly recommend. It’s the best value for your money! Posted by Riz, April 2014.

Jp and everybody @Sarmiento law firm did a wonderful job in helping me getting my green card! Without hesitation I’ve acquired his service again to apply for my green card. We could’ve gone to any attorney in Nyc since we live in New York but we went to JP instead because he did a prompt and excellent service getting my J1 visa waived. It took us less than 4 months after filing to get an appointment for interview and as a result I got my green card.Thanks a million JP, arty and everybody @ the law firm!!!!!!!  Posted by an Immigration client, March 2014.

NOW, here are the reasons why we chose JP(and in all honesty, why YOU should as well).

a) I believe that JP is the most economical firm on the market in the North-East Ohio Area (NEO).In full disclosure, I have not conducted an extensive study of prevailing rates as it pertains to immigration lawyers in and around Cleveland area. However, about 3 to 4 sample data points from Cleveland area, and about 2 data points from the Houston, Texas area – led us to believe JP would be well within our budget. It is pertinent to note that as of writing this review (Feb 2014), JP does NOT charge by the hour (in the context of our immigration case). He charged us a flat fee, accepted American Express as a form of payment .

b) So, he fit well within our budget. What about the quality of legal advice, you might ask ? Fear not. For starters, JP and his staff (Arty and Glenn) are very knowledgeable about the general immigration process, laws/rules and MOST importantly, are masters of minutiae, the details, the fine print. By that, I mean – they understand every crook and crevice of the immigration handbook. In my opinion, you definitely need such a team to navigate the labyrinth, that is US Immigration. To cite a few examples: JP and his team, worked with us extensively when my wife and I filled out the various forms needed to submit my GC application (Forms I-131, I-485, 765 etc). We had several questions – ALL of which were promptly answered by JP (or his staff) via e-mails and phone calls. We called JP several times and he always got back to us regarding the right answers to be filled in. Most importantly, he did not charge ANYTHING extra for the phone conversations/e-mail correspondences. He was kind, polite, courteous, friendly, to the point and most importantly confident in his answers.

c) Communication – Arty (who is on JP’s staff), kept a constant and direct stream of communication via e-mails, wherein she intimated us of the acceptance of our application, the various receipt notices, the fingerprinting appointments, the interview notices etc. My wife and I were consistently and constantly in the loop regarding the status of our case. It is a well known fact that the USCIS timelines for processing are not exactly very linear. Some stages can go by rather quickly, followed by a sudden lull of inactivity. Luckily in our case, everything moved through at a very steady pace. To give you an idea of the timelines, we contact JP in September (mid-month), had our documents ready for intake by September 30th, 2013. During this time of document prep, we were constantly in touch with JP. Once the documents were submitted, JP and his team kept us abreast of that proceedings.

d) Attorney Coaching/Guidance – Since my GC case in effect depended on proving the validity of our marriage to the USCIS officer, we had a session with JP’s peer (Glen) – who helped us understand the most common questions asked by Immigration officer during the interviews. We took our sample questions – jotted down our answers and compared notes. Subsequently, Glen also reviewed with us the biographical information that we had submitted during the initial document submission stage. We came away with some key learning points – During the interview stay calm and composed, and stay true to yourself and the relationship. Glen also coached my wife for some potential citizenship questions – since she had to take the citizenship test as well.

e) Attorney Presence at the Interviews – Glen (Attorney) came to my wife’s Citizenship interview and to our joint Green Card interview.He sat in the room with the immigration officer and even helped clarify some aspects of the case to the officer. It is always a relief and source of support to have an attorney with you (i.e physically present and sitting less than 2 feet ).

In summary, you get very good service, excellent legal representation and an overall pleasant experience from JP/Glenn and Arty.Thanks to JP and his team.  Posted by Ravi, March 2014

JP was my attorney on an asylum case. From the beginning he was always readily available even before I retained him, answering every question and exploring every avenue. He was sensitive and attentive. He was available even outside of working hours and many times due to the time difference he would speak with me well after his office hours. Before my interview he thoroughly prepped me until I was confident even though he was in the middle of busy conferences and schedules. He really makes the client a priority. We went over everything many times until I felt very prepared and I walked into my interview very well prepared. He really goes beyond just being an attorney to caring about your individual well-being as a person and that is unlike anything I have seen before with other attorneys. I felt comfortable and that he was very well experienced and the best person to represent me. Even after I had to submit additional information. JP worked overtime on my case and did not charge me any additional fees, and he submitted everything in time, and after a few days I received my approval. Even if you are not in the same state, go to JP for any immigration needs. This is by far the best attorney I have encountered and I give JP my highest recommendation.

A big THANK YOU to JP and his team! JP and Glen Yu did an outstanding job in handling my case. My F1 visa was about to expire and I needed to change my status asap. My prospective employer was willing to sponsor me for a work visa but didn’t know much about the process. So I decided to hire Sarmiento Immigration Firm, and I am so happy I did. My H1-B visa (cap exempt) got approved in less than 5 days and USCIS didn’t even request any evidence! The law firm sent along with the petition a support letter including strong arguments on why my employer met the cap exempt requirements and also proving the position offered was in a specialty occupation. Because of their professionalism and knowledge of the US immigration laws, the application process went smoothly from the beginning to the end. Money wise, they offer free consultation and the fee they charge is very reasonable. I highly recommend Sarmiento Immigration Firm.  Posted by Steph S, January 2014.

JP did not hesitate to answer all of my questions up front, assess my case, and give me an informed recommendation to go forward. All paperwork and materials were collected and filed in a timely manner and we were prepped for our final interview. My wife now has her Green Card and we are thrilled.

Even though my case was unique, as we had begun the Green Card application process in another country, JP was able help me complete the process in the USA without a hitch. I never felt that my case was going to be anything but a success with JP covering all of the bases.

JP is a very knowledgable and energetic immigration attorney. You can tell his services are well availed, and yet, he was able to make time for my case and address issues personally. He was among the few immigration attorneys with relatable experience in petitioning for the entrepreneur H1B visa and was instrumental in enabling a smooth application process. I was able to complete my H1B petition from the DC area entirely over phone and email, and hope to meet JP in person soon some day as I continue my relationship with his firm.

I retained JP and his firm after he came highly recommended by a friend. It did not take long to find out why. JP and his associates worked on my permanent residency application – a process that looked daunting but was handled with ease and excellence. We retained him at the end of July and the application was approved in 4 months! He and his associate (Arty) worked tirelessly with my employer. In fact, my employer noted that never before had she had to do so little from her end. She specifically asked for his firm’s name for future reference! JP was available every time we had questions and he had knowledgeable, straight-forward answers. I would recommend his law firm wholeheartedly.

I contacted Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm because I needed advice and help completing and organizing the necessary paperwork for immigration to the USA based on marriage to a US citizen. They told me exactly what paperwork/evidence I needed and said to email/post it to them and they would do the rest.

He was always available for questions, and explained the whole process to me in ways that were easily understandable for someone going through it for the first time. I was thankful for the low fee and for the detailed, careful attention he gave to my case. Thanks to Sung Hee’s hard work, my H1B visa was approved after just three days of processing.

To say I was impressed with this services of Sarminento immigration is an understatement. I contacted this law firm sometime in January 20013 for legal representation a full asylum application hearing. I had arrived the US as a parolee and having no family here, I could not afford the services of a lawyer . so I went to my first hearing by myself without a lawyer but the judge adjourned my case and insisted I get a legal representative. I was give a list of pro bono lawyers whom I tried to contact for legal representation but my efforts were futile as they all turned me down. I had give n up until a friend referred me to Sarmiento immigration and on the very first contact with JP Sarminento I felt like God had answered my prayers , the fee he charged was honestly the lowest any every other lawyer I had spoken to had charged. Also he seemed to be very versed with the claim for which I was filing for ASSYLUM. That is he was so current on the political state of affairs in my country without me given him the necessary details. Immediately I knew this was the guy I NEEDED. Aside from charging a low fee , I was so delighted by the payment plan they suggest . they didn’t give me pressure to pay all the money before they took up my case. TO my surprised they allowed me pay in installments and even represented me in court prior to my completion of their. Moreover after I won my case, no pressure was put to complete the last payment like other lawyers will. Honestly ,this group of legal minds are the kind any grateful person would describe as ‘GOD SENT ! ‘ Keeping the financial part aside , I will like throw emphasis on the quality of their services in preparing me for my case. at this stage I will give a lot of gratitude To GLEN , who is an associate of the firm and represented me during my hearing. H spent hours and days discussing my case with me and identified too man errors I had made in my evidences . Errors I never would have identified on my own. I must say he is an expert and very keen to details. I showed up for my hearing on Sept 30th 2013together with my lawyer and in less than 2hrs the judge granted my petition . My performance was perfect because my lawyer Glen Sun Hee had taken a lot of time to prepare me by making me master my case and its details completely. therefor the judge had little or no objections or controversies over my matter. Today I am a legal resident of the US . I would go to every length to recommend this firm to every individual having immigration issues. They are experts and they treat you like family and are very sympathetic when it comes to the financial part . Contact Sarmiento immigration law firm and see your immigration troubles fade away in no time with little or no stress. sincerely ,they do the bulk of the job. Posted by Linda M Leke, October 2013.

Mr. Sarmiento has undoubtedly shown me that even though a geographical barrier existed between me (Baltimore) and himself (Cleveland), his workmanship exceeded ANY attorney I could have retained locally.

Sarmiento Law Firm is the best I have ever worked with. This firm is easy to work with, easily accessible and their prices are so reasonable it makes any immigration process you are working on worthwhile. Sarmiento Firm helped me with the process of applying for a work permit visa ( H1-B) and I must say the application process was as smooth and effective as possible. The lawyer put in my application at the beginning of April and by the second week in June, I got an email that I had been approved by the immigration service for my H1-B Visa. I highly recommend this firm to anyone dealing with immigration issues. Their prices are affordable and they make your case their utmost priority. I worked with this Law firm and I feel that is one of the best experiences of my life. Try Sarmiento Law Firm for your immigration cases and I promise you will never regret this experience. Posted by Quincy Darko, July 2013.

Where do I start to describe how happy I am that I decided to use this firm for my immigration issues… Here comes the list: 1. ACTUAL FREE CONSULTATION. (not a person who claims to be a high professional lawyer and charge you at least $100/hr., just to tell you in the end that he has no idea what to do with your “very complicated” case, but he can try for $$$$!) 2. PROMT RESPONSE TO ANY INQUIRY. (I am sure these people have a very high caseload, but still manage to respond to me if not right away then always within 24 hours, sometimes even on weekends! So no endless holding on the phone, no promises from secretary to call back later, which usually never happens.) 3. PROFESSIONALISM. (Shares his plan of action on your case with you and explains possible outcomes and chances of each of it to happen!) 4. REASONABLE COMPENSATION. (To put it simple: in my opinion he would rather take 3 clients and charge them $, then one client and charge $$$ for the same thing.) 5. VERY FRIENDLY ATTITUDE. (When he talks you feel like you are talking to a person who is really willing to help, not someone who makes you feel that you know nothing and he is doing you a huge favor by taking you case!) 6. PROVIDE COPIES OF EVERYTHING THAT FILED AND RECEIVED ON YOUR CASE FOR YOUR OWN RECORDS. (May be it only happened to me, but before I had a hard time getting any papers out of my lawyer who claimed that my file belongs to him!) This is not a complete list, but the main things are there. Also I would like to address people out there who has doubts about hiring a lawyer out-of-state, I had the same issue before but not anymore. I live in Texas and believe it or not I couldn’t find any competent lawyer for my case here, tried a lot of them, but they either did not know what to do or asked an unrealistic price. I found out about Sarmiento on Google when I was so stressed and desperate that I thought it wouldn’t hurt me just to ask one more lawyer a question since it is free.I filed out a simple form and asked him a question about my situation, I couldn’t believe it a t first when I got detailed response on the next day. That was the best decision I made and now my issue is resolved within a month and a half! Thank you Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm! Just letting you all know my case was to terminate removal proceedings not to just fill out a few forms:-) Everything is possible! Good luck to you all! Posted by Olga Kryazhevskikh, July 2013.

Anyway after 6month wait I started looking for lawyer. Almost talk to 30+ lawyers but so far every one say, I wld not able to do change of status.. When I found AVVO.com and email them. Mr. Sarmiento call me right away , he convince me, send me article reg. grandfathering. finally go ahead n talk to Mr. Sarmiento who actually came to see me n discuss my case. I received my Green Card after long wait. i recommended few friends and they succeed too.

I’m so glad to find this website. Posted by an Immigration client, July 2013.

I called JP from Chicago as a final solution to my case, a really complicated appeal with the BIA. He answered all of my questions, emails and phone calls and prepared a 300-pages appeal in about 3 days. He knows all the little details that can help your case. He won’t promise you success, but he’ll work hard to earn it. And so he gained my trust and respect. My case if far from over, but after years of fighting a loosing war, I finally won my first battle. I will continue to use JP for my immigration case and I strongly recommend you give him a call, especially if you’re in a painful situation like removal proceedings. Posted by flo, an Immigration client, June 2013.

JP is very easy to work with and reliable. I called from Chicago because I saw he had done similar cases to mine, and I’m talking about really complicated appeals with the BIA. I decided to hire him even though I never met him. I asked if he could have the appeal ready for me in 10 days. He had a 300-pages appeal sorted out and ready in about 3 days. I asked how long until we should get an answered from the BIA? He said hopefully 1-2 months. About 2 months later I got my appeal approved and am waiting on the next steps. This is a guy that will always answer your calls/emails, he’s very knowledgeable about the immigration law, he works hard for you and charges reasonably. I strongly recommend you give him a call, I’m very happy I did!   Flo C reviewed on June 2013.

I am from Turkey, came to USA with J-1 visa. Then I decided to apply for H1B. The attorneys around New York, they ask crazy amounts of money. Then I found out JP, via AVVO. His reviews were great. Then I asked for service fee. It was much more affordable compare to other attorneys I have talked.

At first I was quite suspicious about the service quality, because if the fees are low, service quality suppose to be lower. But it was not like that, whenever I wrote him, he responded to me in a day, he always keep me informed. Right now, my H1b petition is not approved yet but I am %100 happy to work with him.

I forgot to tell, he managed successfully to fill and send my H1b forms in a couple weeks. I signed contract with him on early March, and he succeed to apply by 1 April.  Posted by BILAL TATAR, an Immigration client, June 2013

Even though the attorney was remotely located (we were in different states) flying back and forth, he kept me informed of my case and the proceedings and he saw it through the entire process.

Very helpfull attorney, Knowledgeable, responds in time even sometimes late night.

The office too was helpful, Arty and the team.

Thank you very much.  Posted by Erastus, an Immigration client May 2013.

Glen Yu, Esq. helped my H-1 visa process. He was very efficient and professional. He provided good information to help me understand and worked hard for my case. My case was very time-sensitive, so he was really efficient in expediting the case and made the process go smoothly. Since he dealt with my issues in a timely manner, I got my H-1 visa on time. I really appreciate his work and strongly recommend him to anyone who needs assistance in the immigration process.  Hyewon Shin reviewed on February 2013

I was in California when i came to know about Atty Sarmiento in Ohio through AVVO.

I came on student visa and married a U.S.C. and filed for green card but had an issue with my case. I WAS WORRIED initially of proceeding as it was a horrible feeling that what if something goes wrong after the filing.

He was so calming and explained everything in mail that the case is more than doable for him. To be honest I contacted a minimum of 30 odd Attorneys through mail and i immediately availed of his services the moment my paperwork was ready.

Exactly after 3 months of filing the Green card got approved on the day of interview itself. His fees are reasonable and he took care of the issues regarding the case aptly.

I will recommend him to everyone and whenever i need any immigration representation without doubt I will contact him immediately.

Now he is like a mentor to me as he helped me with professional licensing issue as well as it was correlating with the immigration action as well.

God bless you Atty Sarmiento!  Posted by an Immigration client, February 2013.

I have never met a lawyer who is very professional and knowledgeable as Atty. Sarmiento. He has been a blessing. I just recently had my H1B approved without any RFEs. He keeps you informed about what’s happening and I personally haven’t experienced that from my previous lawyers where I would have to call or email them myself regarding my case’s status.  Posted by Cy, an Immigration client, February 2013.

Atty. JP Sarmiento did a very splendid job towards the visa application and approval of my sons. He provided candid assessment and worked with us through the entire application process. He kept us informed all throughout the process regarding the application status thus, reducing our worries. He regularly made follow-ups with the immigration department until the visas were approved and released. We are thankful to have selected and acquired his services! And, we would recommend Atty. JP Sarmiento to anyone who wish similar services in the future!  Posted by Jerome, an Immigration client, January 2013.

” Why did you choose a lawyer in Cleveland to handle your case in Baltimore ? ” Those are the words of the immigration officer who seemed pretty surprised at my lawyer pick. I can say that working with JP was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. During my first meeting with JP, he drove 7 hours from Cleveland on a Saturday morning to meet me at a coffee shop without any guarantee that we would be working together. After that day, I told myself that this is the kind of person I want to work with. What was also a decisive factor in working with the Sarmiento Law Firm, was that money never seemed to be an issue and they all seemed genuinely interested in helping people. When calling lawyers around they would ask you $ 100 to say “yes ” or no to your questions. JP would engage in 20 minutes phone conversation with me without asking me for a dime. I think that it says something about the kind of person you are dealing with; and just as I thought ,as my case went along, and when money was an issue, his commitment to my family and I never wavered. To conclude, I would just say that I am actually so glad I got to work with the Sarmiento Law Firm because I have learned so much. You should never pick the most prestigious law firm, or think that price necessarily means quality . You need to pick the team whom you judge will work the hardest for you, and I can guarantee you that with JP and his team you will never be disappointed in that sense. Thank you so much to the Sarmiento Law Firm for your hard work. We will always be grateful.  Babacar Niang reviewed on January 2013.

Glen Yu, Esq. is a skilled and efficient lawyer that works for a respectable firm. He dealt with our case which a petition for the permanent residency of a foreign relative who came into the US via Visa Waiver Program (VWP) and was wed to myself, a US citizen (I-130 & I-485). From our initial consultation, Mr. Yu had all of our paperwork, including an application for a work permit (I-765), submitted within a month. My relative had her biometrics taken a month after the application submission, received her work permit a month thereafter, and finally completed her interview exactly 3 months after the initial submission. During the whole process, Mr. Yu was keen to keep us updated of the status and prepared for the following steps. He was always available for questions, and made sure that we were prepared for our interview beforehand. Mr. Yu is a model lawyer, who is straightforward, confident, and also a very warm individual. I highly recommend him to those in need of assistance in the immigration process.  Stephen Park reviewed on January 2013.

I hired Atty. Sarmiento (JP) for assistance in handling my deferred action application. From the get go he was very responsive and courteous when responding to my inquiries which I had plenty of! My e-mails tended to be wordy, which I genuinely felt guilty about, but JP still managed to get to the gist of my questions and answer them to my satisfaction. He’s easy to work with and is quite friendly, helping alleviate some of the anxiety surrounding the process. I was able to pay his fee in three payments which also helped alleviate the financial impact of hiring a lawyer. 

With his firm handling the paperwork, I was able to file a fairly comprehensive application a few months back and I just received my approval this past weekend! I am, of course, very happy with the result and am glad that I had hired JP because he took much of the guess-work and uncertainty out of the whole process; it helped to know that I had sent the best possible application so the waiting game wasn’t as stressful. 

I can only speak from this one experience but I don’t think I’m alone in giving a huge thumbs-up and a stellar recommendation to the work JP and his firm does.  Posted by Joe P, an Immigration client, December 2012.

The first call with Glen Sunghee Yu dissipated my months-long anxiety!! I was a F1 student and wanted to change VISA status to E1 dependent. Actually, I had to, since my F1 was expiring. However, in my disturbed mind, the process didn’t seem ordinary and simple due to my special situation. In general, E1 holders who accompany family members enter the state together at the same time with guaranteed VISA and status for all members accompanying. But, I was in a different situation. Practically, I became E1 holder’s family member in the state, while I was still holding F1 at that point. Oh, it sounds simple now, but back then my mind suffered planing to change my status alone. I debated whether I should go back to my country to get E1 dependent visa, which would cost me a lot, financially and even psychologically. Is there any other way to stay with my newly-wed hubby? Of course, I perused USCIS pages over and over again. It appeared I could apply status change to USCIS, but still lots of doubts in my mind since I was in (maybe self-inflicted) special case. What if they decide my case is a woman who fakes marriage in order to stay illegally? If so, I would never be able to put my foot on this soil again, of course after my deportation! My anxiety and stress level had got into that point, still being unable to find a decisive answer. As I mentioned at the first place, Sarmiento Immigration Law firm, relived me as soon as I made a call. I explained my situation (not failing to express my over-concerned mind) to Glen, who assessed my case with no time and convinced me there should be no problem in my case. He also detailed what documentations I needed to prepare, which filled blanks that USCIS web-site information left in my mind. After that the first call, the whole process went so easy that I never concerned over my result which came successfully far earlier than we expected. I’ve got the result just in one and half month. Now, looking back, I specially value Glen’s very prompt communications with me, even making clients feel personally cared for.When I told him I wanted to file the form as soon as possible, like tomorrow, he even explained his working trip schedule to other state in detail and he could work on my case soon after the trip. Just for a second, I got dismayed over letting a few days go away with no action. However, his kind explanation of the schedule made me believe his commitment to take care of his clients. It may be small thing, many people may not appreciate that information sharing, deciding unrelated to their own cases. But to me, that small things helped build trust up, eventually bringing peaceful mind in waiting. Even though I don’t have many experiences and relationships with law firms, I believe Sarmiento Immigration Law firm provides the most responsive and prompt law services, of course with not only excellent knowledge but cheerful kindness. I won’t hesitate to call Glen again if i ever need another law service.  Susan Kwon reviewed on December 2012.

Jp Sarmiento handled my case promptly, efficiently with great result!!!. I’ve been to 2 different lawyers for consultation prior and both gave me very bleak answers. i was told that the process would take about 6 month to a year and I might not even get approved. I came across JP’s firm when researching similar case and was immediately put at ease by his professionalism and knowledge on the subject after initial consultation. He took my case and less than 2 months later I was able to get my visa waived. I am now able to proceed with my green card application, thank you JP!!!!  Posted by an Immigration client, December 2012.

Very Understanding and friendly lawyer ever dealt with. Actually it was for my wife’s case. She came in the US with J1 in 2006 and return back home after completing her program and again got back in the US within a year with Q1visa. She didn’t get any J1 waiver thinking her Q1 will supersede. I was a Green card holder only that time and We got I-130 approved but did not know that her 2 years rule has to be full filled because my prior lawyer overlooked and did not see it until someone from her office point it out. So we fired her and came to Mr. JP Sarmiento’s office because we saw lot of positive reviews and feedback in the internet which gave us hope to get the waiver. And as expected he filed it pretty quick, every thing went smoothly and in two months we got our waiver approved. That’s pretty quick than expected.Now we are filing for her green card. Thank you Mr.Sarmiento!!!   Prabeen Manandhar reviewed on December 2012.

I highly recommend JP and his staff for any immigration work. He was recommended to me by a close friend for handling my wife’s immigration from China, and I am very glad I took the advice. It was as painless as anything requiring an attorney could be. During her final interview in GuangZhou I had the opportunity to stand in line and talk to a bunch of people who attempted China -> US immigration by themselves, with no attorney, and some of the horror stories that I heard shocked me. Don’t try to go it alone, its not worth the pain. The problem is that the actual process doesn’t turn out to be anything like the application makes it look.

We only had 1 little hiccup, and it was all my fault. At the begging JP told me what documents I would need. It went something like, “You need X. Bring Y…. they probably won’t even look at it, but if they ask for it & you don’t have it, it will be trouble. They say Z is ‘optional’, but you won’t get the visa without it.” I didn’t bring 1 year of tax returns for a year that I had not filed any taxes. JP told me that it might be trouble, and suggested that I late file an empty tax return for that year and bring that…. but I didn’t… and it ended up costing us about a 3 week delay. It all worked out in the end, but I wish I had just listened to him the first time. There is no substitute for the experience these guys have in actually doing this over and over.

I strongly recommend JP Sarmiento Law Firm to you due to their diverse experiences in immigration area and dedicated services to client. I came to Mr. Sarmiento after being suffered by working with big firm lawyer who neither had time to respond to client’s needs or cared enough to not make mistakes which resulted in prolonged delay of process at client’s expense! I was extremely impressed by Mr. Sarmiento’s dedication in offering helpful advice to my cold-call inquiry before I even became his client. Due to his depth knowledge and diverse experiences, case assessment was done quickly and accurately which resulted a speedy success at minimum costs. His staff, especially Ms. Arty had been friendly, helpful, responsive and very understanding of my needs and constraints.

I particularly appreciate Mr. Sarmineto’s honesty during case assessment, in which he was extremely open about what he knew and what we both would need further exploration. All of which benefited us greatly. His humble attitude and strong interests for continued learning convince me that Mr. Sarmiento will become a topnotch lawyer who embraces great value and dignity that clients need. We all seem suffer nerve-breakdown when comes to immigration matters because of its complexity and on-going changes, that’s why we tend to rely on big time lawyers with hope they will be our saviors! Not always true! My advice is only dedicated, responsible and honest lawyers who are willing to listen, communicate and offer honest advices are ones that help, big or small doesn’t matter!

I truly wish Mr. Sarmiento and his staff greater success and have no doubt they will!  Posted by Kim, an Immigration client,  July 2012.

I hired JP Sarmiento and Glen Yu with the Sarmiento Immigration Law firm to help me apply for a J-2 waiver of foreign residency requirement (dependent turning 21), so I could consequently file for an H1-B work visa. Previously, my employer and I spoke with an established attorney firm in town on referral (I work in a large city in the Midwest), and found that they were not knowledgeable and were unable to cater to my situation in the least (although they tried to bluff through it). Luckily, I was able to find Mr. Sarmiento’s exceptional firm through research, contacted them and started working with them right around New Year’s. By early January all the required documents were filed, and by the end of January I received a favorable recommendation from the DoS. By the end of February, my waiver application was successfully approved by the USCIS. In the end, I was extremely satisfied with Mr. Sarmiento’s work (and I was hoping for as much, after reading the other reviews). These guys really know what they are doing and have great expertise in immigration law, charge VERY reasonable fees, and on top of that, are absolutely a pleasure to work with (prompt feedback and correspondence, very professional and courteous). So the bottom line is, if you need help with any immigration matters, especially if you have an exceptional or uncommon case, the Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm is really your best resource. Highly recommend!   Posted by Alex, an Immigration client,  May 2012.

Attorney JP Sarmiento and his law firm Sarmiento Immigration is absolutely the best immigration attorney you can find in the United States. We had a complicated case (see details below) and Mr. Sarmiento handled it with such expertise that the result exceeded all our expectations. He is not only an expert at the laws regarding immigration, but also an excellent, professional, courteous, and honest attorney.

I was impressed by Mr. Sarmiento’s knowledge of the immigration laws, his excellent communication skills (I always got a response from him in less than 24 hours), and his understanding of our particular case. He made us feel that we were his only clients. He created a strong cover letter for the DHS and Immigration Court, and knew exactly which documents needed to be attached to provide them sufficient proof that my wife’s case deserved a favorable exercise of discretion. By law, DHS is not under any requirement to open old ‘granted withholding of removal’ cases. That is, they can deny your case for any reason, and don’t even have to give you a reason. Therefore, presenting a strong argument is essential and Mr. Sarmiento accomplished this.

About our case: I am a U.S. citizen and my wife was on “granted withholding of removal” status when we got married. When we wanted to adjust her status to a Permanent Resident based on our marriage, we started researching attorneys. After talking to at least a dozen attorneys, I realized that very few had experience with situations where it had been more than 90 days since the withholding of removal was granted. Then, I came across Mr. Sarmiento’s blog/website and found out that he had experience with such cases. I contacted him via e-mail, explaining our situation and asked him for advice and a quote. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a thorough response from him in less than 24 hours, explaining everything in detail. Keep in mind that some of the attorneys wanted $75 to $100 fee for an initial consultation before they even started talking to us. At that time, against my better judgment, I decided to retain another attorney just because she was based out of our city and Mr. Sarmiento was in Cleveland. I thought having a local attorney would be better in terms of communication. That was a big mistake. Long story short, after several hundred dollars in attorney fees and $1070 in USCIS fees, our case was denied because of poor advice by our attorney (USCIS didn’t have jurisdiction over our case, and the attorney should have known this!)

That is when I contacted Mr. Sarmiento again and retained him to represent us. The difference between him and our previous attorney was clear from the beginning. Mr. Sarmiento responded to my e-mails right away, and always provided clear, detailed explanations. He told us how to terminate the proceedings in court so that USCIS will have jurisdiction over my wife’s case. He guided us to file a Joint Motion to Reopen with the Department of Homeland Security. He followed up with them every two weeks, and sent me an update, without me even asking for it. When the DHS didn’t take any action for a couple of months, Mr. Sarmiento filed a Sua Sponte Motion to Reopen with the Immigration Court. At the same time, DHS agreed to join our motion to reopen (therefore we didn’t need to pursue the sua sponte motion). The Immigration Judge reopened the case, and at the same time terminated proceedings without us having to go to court. Now my wife is able to adjust status by filing an I-485 with the USCIS since they do have jurisdiction now.

Thanks to Mr. Sarmiento, my wife can finally become a United States citizen. I highly recommend Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm and would definitely contact them again if a family member or friend is looking for an immigration attorney.  Posted by RK, an Immigration client, 2012.

I hired JP Sarmiento to deal with my husband immigration case. My husband was denied his immigration visa on June 7th 2011 because the US consular in Phnom Penh found misinterpreted fact which he did in 2003 and was required to do the hardship waiver on September 2011. Then, I decided to contact Samiento Immigration Law Firm to hire JP Samiento to deal with my husband case. I gave all documents and told him everything about my husband’s status. JP Samiento is very helpful, understandable and reasonable fees. JP Samiento is comfortable to contact and responses quickly. Our I-601 application form (Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility) was ready and we submitted to the US embassy in Bangkok, Thailand on February 7th, 2012. Regarding to the USCIS website, the I-601 form needs 180 days to review it. However, our application form was approved by the USCIS in Bangkok on March 21st, 2012. It means that the USCIS in Bangkok reviewed our application and approved it within 43 days. This quick process with a good result of our case because we hired a very credible lawyer is JP Sarmiento. Therefore, if anyone needs a lawyer to deal with your immigration case, I recommend you to hire JP Sarmiento. He has a lot of experience in the immigration matter with a reasonable fee.   A Google User,  2012.

I hired JP Sarmiento and Glen Yu with the Sarmiento Immigration Law firm to help me apply for a J-2 waiver of foreign residency requirement (dependent turning 21), so I could consequently file for an H1-B work visa. Previously, my employer and I spoke with an established attorney firm in town on referral (I work in a large city in the Midwest), and found that they were not knowledgeable and were unable to cater to my situation in the least (although they tried to bluff through it). Luckily, I was able to find Mr. Sarmiento’s exceptional firm through research, contacted them and started working with them right around New Year’s. By early January all the required documents were filed, and by the end of January I received a favorable recommendation from the DoS. By the end of February, my waiver application was successfully approved by the USCIS. In the end, I was extremely satisfied with Mr. Yu’s and Mr. Sarmiento’s work (and I was hoping for as much, after reading the other reviews). These guys really know what they are doing and have great expertise in immigration law, charge VERY reasonable fees, and on top of that, are absolutely a pleasure to work with (prompt feedback and correspondence, very professional and courteous). So the bottom line is, if you need help with any immigration matters, especially if you have an exceptional or uncommon case, the Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm is really your best resource. Highly recommend!   A Google User ,  2012.

Attorney JP Sarmiento and his law firm Sarmiento Immigration is absolutely the best immigration attorney you can find in the United States. We had a complicated case (see details below) and Mr. Sarmiento handled it with such expertise that the result exceeded all our expectations. He is not only an expert at the laws regarding immigration, but also an excellent, professional, courteous, and honest attorney. I was impressed by Mr. Sarmiento’s knowledge of the immigration laws, his excellent communication skills (I always got a response from him in less than 24 hours), and his understanding of our particular case. He made us feel that we were his only clients. He created a strong cover letter for the DHS and Immigration Court, and knew exactly which documents needed to be attached to provide them sufficient proof that my wife’s case deserved a favorable exercise of discretion. By law, DHS is not under any requirement to open old ‘granted withholding of removal’ cases. That is, they can deny your case for any reason, and don’t even have to give you a reason. Therefore, presenting a strong argument is essential and Mr. Sarmiento accomplished this. About our case: I am a U.S. citizen and my wife was on “granted withholding of removal” status when we got married. When we wanted to adjust her status to a Permanent Resident based on our marriage, we started researching attorneys. After talking to at least a dozen attorneys, I realized that very few had experience with situations where it had been more than 90 days since the withholding of removal was granted. Then, I came across Mr. Sarmiento’s blog/website and found out that he had experience with such cases. I contacted him via e-mail, explaining our situation and asked him for advice and a quote. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a thorough response from him in less than 24 hours, explaining everything in detail. Keep in mind that some of the attorneys wanted $75 to $100 fee for an initial consultation before they even started talking to us. At that time, against my better judgment, I decided to retain another attorney just because she was based out of our city and Mr. Sarmiento was in Cleveland. I thought having a local attorney would be better in terms of communication. That was a big mistake. Long story short, after several hundred dollars in attorney fees and $1070 in USCIS fees, our case was denied because of poor advice by our attorney (USCIS didn’t have jurisdiction over our case, and the attorney should have known this!) That is when I contacted Mr. Sarmiento again and retained him to represent us. The difference between him and our previous attorney was clear from the beginning. Mr. Sarmiento responded to my e-mails right away, and always provided clear, detailed explanations. He told us how to terminate the proceedings in court so that USCIS will have jurisdiction over my wife’s case. He guided us to file a Joint Motion to Reopen with the Department of Homeland Security. He followed up with them every two weeks, and sent me an update, without me even asking for it. When the DHS didn’t take any action for a couple of months, Mr. Sarmiento filed a Sua Sponte Motion to Reopen with the Immigration Court. At the same time, DHS agreed to join our motion to reopen (therefore we didn’t need to pursue the sua sponte motion). The Immigration Judge reopened the case, and at the same time terminated proceedings without us having to go to court. Now my wife is able to adjust status by filing an I-485 with the USCIS since they do have jurisdiction now. Thanks to Mr. Sarmiento, my wife can finally become a United States citizen. I highly recommend Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm and would definitely contact them again if a family member or friend is looking for an immigration attorney.   A Google User ,  2012.

My husband and I worked with Sung Hee (Glen) Yu for our Adjustment of Status process. Mr. Yu proved to be a very reliable and trustworthy lawyer. He was always quick to respond to any of our questions and kept us informed well throughout the entire process. He even was willing to help us with answers before we decided to hire him. My husband and I could both tell that Mr. Yu genuinely cared for our case. He did everything in a professional manner and we successfully received our Adjustment of Status sooner than we expected (we filed at the end of August 2011, received the work permit in early November, and the permanent resident card in early December 2011). We both highly recommend Sung Hee Yu and would definitely use his services again if there was ever a need.   A Google User ,  2012.

I came to JP after talking to several other lawyers, and shelling out ‘consult’ fees. Most immigration lawyers didn’t know anything about J2 foreign residence waivers. I found out about JP after contacting a former client of his from an immigration forum. I am glad I did. JP was knowledgeable, courteous, and extremely responsive — even on a weekend. He also guaranteed success or our money back, which was reassuring to us. Our application was approved in record time, within about 1.5 months.   A Google User ,  2012.

Wonderful experience and fast result. I consulted Sarmiento law firm for my green card application and interview, and was satisfied with every aspect of the services I got. Glen Yu was the associate attorney who took my case, and I would reccomend him and his law firm to my closest friends. He reminded me of important dates and things to pay attention to, answered all my questions quickly and clearly, and let me know of what to expect along each step of the way. He was confident and friendly when he accompanied my husband and I to the interview with USCIS, which was assuring and made us feel at ease. It turned out great also. Five stars, no doubt.   A Google User ,  2012.

First of all, let me thank Mr. Sarmiento and his team for such the outstanding work he has done on my wavier, which got an approval. Thank you very much. I am from New York and I had a lawyer who I paid a lot of money to handle my I601 wavier case. The lawyer was terrible. When he prepared my argument I read it and told him it was not a good case but he did not listen he told me he know what he was doing so I went along. He went along and file the case it was denied. I was very bewildered because I thought that I will be deported. I tried to talk to the lawyer and they did not take my case seriously. They told me I just had to appeal the decision to the AAO, which was very expensive, so I did. It has been over two years now and I have finally received a letter from the AAO stating that the case was filed to the wrong office. Before I received the letter from the AAO, I started to look for Immigration lawyers over the internet who could help me because my lawyer and I were not on the same page. I called a few lawyers whose name I got over the internet, but all of them would not give information without charging a fee. During my search, I came across Mr. Sarmiento’s website. There I found the information I need and I was very impressed with his background and achievements, so I decided to call. When I called the secretary was very professional and polite, a very rare combination. I got to speak with Mr. Sarmiento and he was wonderful. He gave me so much information and was very knowledgeable in my case. Did I tell you that the consultation was free? That’s when I decided to hire him as my lawyer. Mr. Sarmiento and I worked out a payment plan that was convenient for me. I thought that was very thoughtful. He prepared the wavier I was amazed at the detail in the wavier. He got information from my country of birth that I did not know about. That is what you call research and dedication. Not to mention that we did this entire process without ever having met each other personally. Both Mr. Sarmiento and Ms. Arty , his assistant, would inform me regularly on my case through email, or the phone. My wavier has recently been approved within five month of first hiring Mr. Sarmiento as my lawyer. I truly find this amazing because I previously had a lawyer for three years who cost so much, and got little results. However, Mr. Sarmiento gave me so much, in exchange for so little. I highly recommend anyone who is looking for a brilliant lawyer who is able to put himself in your shoes and understands your situation to contact Mr. Sarmiento immediately. I cannot guarantee that Mr. Sarmiento is going to win your case but I can guarantee that he will give his all.   A Google User ,  2012.

I have to say that I would love to rate 6-stars if there is an option. JP (the owner of the law firm) is awesome!!!! I applied my H1B work visa through their firm on April, 2011 and got it at the beginning of the May. They are really professional and experienced. I have consulted lots of other lawyers before I found JP, they never answer my basic questions during the email or phone call, because they want u to set up appointment and charge you consultation fee ($100 – $200 / hour). But when I found JP online and sent him an email, he was really helpful and answered all my questions for FREE during email, I love his attitude and I know this is the guy I am looking for. After the application started, he gave me a very clear list what he need from me and my company and helped me preparing other documentations. From the beginning to I got the visa, less than 60 days!! So I am sure they are very professional and efficient!!! Moreover, he charges the LOWEST the price according to my research. So I will definitely recommend Sarmiento Immigration Law Firm to anyone who is seeking for visa help, they are great!! Look at all the five stars rate!   A Google User ,  2012.

I went on to search for the reliable and honest immigrant lawyer for my asylum case in Virginia for the past few weeks. I found many of them, especially the immigrant top attorney, requesting for $150 (minimum) for the 1st hour consultation fee…etc. I hadn’t got any clue in my mind..why i need to pay this sum since i didn’t know whether he/she could really handling our case well. I just prayed unceasingly until i finally found JP Sarmiento Law Firm. I contacted JP and explained my situation and asked him all sorts of necessary and unnessary questions related to this case..thanks God, he is so friendly, professional, soft-spoken,personable answering all these questions in less than 35mins through phone. Since many of the attorney is charging for the consultation fees, I was asking JP whether he could travel nearby to our place in Virginia with free of charge as I don’t commute since we have kids. He gave the best shot, as he said ‘Sure’ and he will meet us somewhere nearby at our convenience without charging us any single dollars and cents. Phew** We met at one of the place, way my kids are around me, I felt so relaxed after consulted him and without further hesitation, we spotted JP is the right attorney that we’ve been searching high and low. I’ve definitely telling everyone about JP for his good work and please support him if you seen this review!!You will have no regret certainly.   A Google User , 2011.

JP was the best lawyer we could have asked for by far. We had 2 other lawyers before JP one that we not go to Cleveland and one from Cleveland that was just downright rude. Then I did a search on the internet and JP’s site popped up and from the get go. He was on top of everything. We hire JP one week before my husband hearing and I really wasn’t sure if he would be able to help us in that little amount of time but he worked overtime and got everything covered and he called us every step of the way to let us know what he thought and if he needed more info. On the day of my husband’s hearing JP met us at the court and was very nice and listened to what we had to say. He answered all of our questions to the best that he could. After about 3 hrs my husband and JP came out of the hearing with the best news ever my husband’s Cancellation of Removal was approved and my husband is now a GREEN CARD holder. I would recommend JP to anyone. He is a very great lawyer that cares about his clients.   A Google User  2011.

JP’s customer service is outstanding. Imagine having a lawyer with free consultation (not some bullsh1+ where you call in and they don’t answer questions until you pay a retainer fee), reasonable rates (he doesn’t nickel and dime you on services), excellent communication (JP actually answers the phone or he’ll call back in a matter of minutes), and super friendly/personable (probably because he’s pinoy/filipino 😉 ) while being super professional. When it comes to obtaining a Green Card and you’re a legit person/couple, his experience with all his cases will guarantee a U.S. Green Card status. I also agree with the review below that he has the biggest heart. Thank you thank you thank you JP :)   A Google User  2011.

I recently contacted Mr. Sarmiento via email after finding him on Avvo. He was nice enough to take his time and respond to my correspondences and provide me with all the necessary information that I required. I am from New York and I have visited two lawyers and left their offices feeling like I committed a crime for overstaying my visa and I had no other way but to use their over priced services. Mr. Sarmiento was not like that and he provided me with more information than I ever received from those lawyers. I am going to file my paperwork on my own, however I felt it was necessary to take my time to write this review to let people know that Mr. Sarmiento is not like other lawyers and if they’re trying to find a good one then don’t look any further. I will definately recommend him to everyone that I know and I will surely retain his services if I ever need it.  Posted by Reshma, an Immigration client, 2012.

This was our second try in front of the immigration officers and everyone knows how hard the second time can be but with JPs help we made it and with the fraction of the cost that other lawyers wanted.Other lawyers we had seen wanted 8 to 10 thousand dollars to take our case and she was up for deportation.

I am an immigrant from India. I was doing my Master’s here in the United States. During the second year, I dropped below full-time enrollment due to which my F1-visa status got violated & there was no other option except to go for reinstatement. I contacted many law firms in the country for the same thing but none of them were clear or convincing in their approach. It was only after I got in touch with JP Sarmiento of Sarmiento Immigration law firm that I began to feel I could overcome this critical situation which otherwise seemed quite impossible. He was very positive & clear in his approach and made things less complex for me by clearly mentioning the feasible options to me & other important documents that could strengthen my application. All of this strengthened my application immensely and helped me restore my F1-status without any problem. I would therefore recommend JP Sarmiento law firm.   Posted by an Immigration client,  2011.

After 1 year, I remarried an US citizen and we were researching for a good immigrant lawyer. After a long search and a great deal of frustration and confusion regarding immigration, we finally found JP Sarmiento Law Firm in the Filipino Reporter (a NYC local filipino newspaper). We contacted JP and explained my situation and seek guidance. JP explained clearly the immigration process, his experience, and what steps that needed to me made.

His main office is located in Cleveland,OH, but he came to the NYC/NJ area to meet with us twice and answered all of our many questions. He was helpful and responsive until the very end of the immigration process. On the day of the interview, JP sent his associate, Sung Hee Glen Yu Esq., who met us at the USCIS office and was very supportive and informative during a stressful day for us. Now, I have obtained my green card through JP’s expertise in immigration law. Thank you so much JP and Glen for all your help!

I am an American-born physician living in Cleveland, Ohio. I retained JP Sarmiento to help in my wife’s immigrant application to the United States. He was extremely helpful, organized, and with very fair fees.

He and his staff basically took care of filing and keeping track of my case, and I did not have to worry about anything throughout the approval process. I even got a call from him on the day of my wife’s embassy interview asking how things went. I’ve needed the help of a couple attorneys in the past, and JP has been by far the most caring and selfless.

I would highly recommend JP for immigration or other legal work. I have no complaints.   Posted by BA, an Immigration client, 2011.

It is always an advantage to get guidance from someone who has been in your position before and I think that is one of the primary reasons why consulting with JP did not seem impersonal.

Throughout the process he was extremely cooperative, highly competent and very prompt. He explored all possible options to make the process as convenient as possible for us.

I would definitely recommend JP and his firm to anyone seeking help with immigration issues.   Posted by Abha, an Immigration client, 2011.

I have had the pleasure recently to be represented by JP, with a favorable outcome after having two other lawyers. If I had a question and would email him on the weekend he would reply. He kept me informed all of the way and is very dedicated to his clients. I trusted him with my case and he came through. He is very knowledgable in his field. He is a lifesaver and it was an honor having him represent me. I will definitely recommend him to others that are in need of immigration help.   Posted by an Immigration client, 2011.

Title: Smooth, clear, knowledgeable, affordable fees, convenient method of payment, fast, and delivers quick and positive results!

We stumbled for quite a long time figuring out how to arrange my situation: former J-2, divorced from J-1 (with whom the contact is absolutely zero, therefore no documents possible from him), with a overstayed visa, and married to a U.S. Citizen, looking for a waiver requested by the USCIS to the 2-year foreign residence requirement under section 212(e) that I was subject to.
We initially contacted just one lawyer we found online that specializes on hard J waiver cases. His fees were not very affordable for us and even though he was very helpful, at the end he didn’t seem to have full knowledge of the full range of options and ways to help my case. After realizing this, we decided to look online for more options and testimonials, looking for experiences similar to mine and other lawyers. In this search, we bumped into a success story in a case very very similar to mine in their website, the lawyer firm that conducted the case was in fact Sarmiento’s. We contacted him and initially we were surprised that he DOES NOT charge for an unlimited time telephone consultation!, which was unprecedented for us. After this, at the beginning we were skeptical due first to his very affordable fees (compared to the first lawyer we contacted) and convenient choices for method of payment, and second, the apparent simplicity of the proposed solution. But as we decided to go with them, we started to realize we could have a serious chance to solve my otherwise complicated and almost hopeless situation. They were very diligent and prompt for questions, answers and filing the paperwork. They kept the burden, if any, to the necessary minimum. The final happy note came when after only a little bit more than 2 months of initial contact and after 40 days of filing the application, it was approved!
I was truly and genuinely happy with the whole process: the cost, the communication and of course, the results. I would highly recommend this lawyer, specially for cases similar to mine.   Posted by Bb, an Immigration client, 2012.

JP was a great lawyer. He took on our case with only a week before my husband hearing and I really didnt think that it was enough time but….with JP he covered everything and worked overtime to make sure that he was doing the best job he could do for us. I would recommend him a hundred times over.   Posted by Amanda, an Immigration client, 2011.

JP’s customer service is outstanding. Imagine having a lawyer with free consultation (not some bullsh1+ where you call in and they don’t answer questions until you pay a retainer fee), reasonable rates (he doesn’t nickel and dime you on services), excellent communication (JP actually answers the phone or he’ll call back in a matter of minutes), and super friendly/personable (probably because he’s pinoy/filipino 😉 ) while being super professional. When it comes to obtaining a Green Card and you’re a legit person/couple, his experience with all his cases will guarantee a U.S. Green Card status. I also agree with the review below that he has the biggest heart. Thank you thank you thank you JP :)   Posted by an Immigration client, 2011.

Before I met JP as imigration lawer, I met several lawers but all of them were helpful.Eventually JP helped my family with successful asylum application within 4 months.

I found him from his ad in Craigslist. We started to know each other for an initial taliking over the phone. All our contact was via phone, email and mail.

I believe JP is trustful ,reliable and knowledgeable, furthermore, his service is is fairly priced.

I strongly recommend JP to anyone who need an immigration attorney.   Posted by an Immigration client,  2010.

JP is really a patient and helpful lawyer. Before I filed my case (change of status) to USCIS, I raised so many questions to him that even I feel myself is so annoying, however, JP did not. He always response on each of my questions promptly and patiently. He is not only patient but also professionally to give me a valuable advice. I would highly recommend JP if any people there would like to deal with a nice and helpful lawyer for filing their case on change of status like me. I am sure you must gain the great experience & excellent service that JP provide you.   Posted by chiubingbing, an Immigration client,  2010.

JP helped my wife and I with our successful Permanent Residency application. I met him once for an initial meeting and due to the distance between our two cities the rest of our contact was via phone, email and regular mail. JP is knowledgeable, patient and a consummate professional. Additionally, his service is highly personalised and fairly priced. I strongly recommend JP to anyone in need of an immigration attorney.   Posted by Sam, an Immigration client,  2010.

JP did EB-2, NIW case for me. He kept in touch, he answered questions, he kept me well informed about status of my case and advised what papers to gather to make my case stronger. Since then I have worked with 4 other lawyers/paralegals, but JP definitely was the best of them all.   Posted by BB, an Immigration client,  2010.

I would definitely recommend Mr JP Sarmiento if someone needs to handle an immigration related case, and definitely will use his service again, should it be needed. JP handled my case from the beginning. Communicated over e-mail only with no single problem or misunderstanding. Clearly answered for all my questions regarding the case (was not charged for the initial e-mail consultation). Acts quickly and timely. Everything was done professionally and competently. Thank you.  Posted by Alexander, June 2015.

We consulted another lawyer before we Atty Sarmiento, and after talking with him, we decided to go with him to process my Permanent Residency Application by marriage coming from an H visa (waiver). We are most impressed with Atty Sarmiento’s work ethics, professionalism and efficiency. He gave clear instructions, was always available despite the difference in time-zones, and honest regarding possible outcomes. The green card application got approved, thanks to Atty Sarmiento! I knew we were in good hands from the beginning. Posted by Janjan, April 2015.
