I met (virtually) Emily when she was handling my EB-1 petition and then later my I-485 at Challa Law Offices. She was of great help. Extremely timely. She drafted my petition and put my packages together. The biggest help was with letters of recommendation. In less than a year, I got my EB-1 and I-485 approved which I thought was record time because of my nationality. So when time came to file my now-husband's EB-2 and I-485, we hired Challa Law Office but specifically requested Emily to work on our case. Once again she did everything in a timely manner. We decided to file around 15th and filed both EB-2 and I-485 on December 8th. My husband received his green card around March 15th ( I still think this is record time: 3 months). It was funny that he got his green card and then a week later got his employment authorization. His nationality did help but I also think that the files were perfect and there was no RFE. Everything went through the first time around.

I wholeheartedly recommend Emily and wish her the best in her new practice.
