"Julia recently took control of a complicated situation I was in regarding my personal attempt to amend my working visa. At our initial meeting she explained clearly my position and offered immediate advice. I had no hesitation in engaging her to assist in resolving my problem, which resulted in me applying for a new visa abroad. She was extremely thorough in preparing a new application, willingly discussed any concerns I had, presented me my options and their consequences, whilst offering advice throughout the process.
I was successful in receiving a new visa. The documents Julia prepared on behalf of my employer were extremely well written and presented - adequately demonstrating that I met the criteria for the E3 visa. In addition, she also made me aware that I was being underpaid - and assisted in me receiving another $8000 per annum from my employer - this was well beyond her call of duty and for this i am extremely grateful. I highly recommend Julia Lamanna. I was in a stressful situation without understanding how complex immigration law is. In the future I will without doubt call on Julia for any further immigration issues." Annika B. - E-3 visa, Graphic Designer
"Julia did an amazing job on my case. She worked so hard and I had no doubt that her effort would have make a great success. My visa was a hard process collecting all my letters of support. And despite the dark times we went through because of this, she always kept her attitude positive and focused on the goal. She encouraged me so many times even when I though I couldn't make it. She went through all my documents, revising them and making sure everything was 100% correct, before filing my case. She come up with so many excellent suggestions that made my case a very successful one. I am thankful to her because I am finally in a legal status, and most of my worries are gone. My visa was approved even before then what we were expecting! No extra questions were made by the immigration service, none of the documents were revised or sent back. I think her talent as a lawyer is represented by her patience and understanding as well as being extremely professional, focused, hard working and brilliant."

"As the Human Resources Director for a multi-national corporation, I have always relied on large law firms for our immigration needs. Two years ago, after experiencing a denial based on an apparently overlooked technicality, I reluctantly decided to take my colleague's recommendation & called Ms. Lamanna. Not only did she rectify the issue, she won my hard-to-earn confidence. I have been relying on her ever since for all of our immigration needs with absolutelyno regrets.
I have been in this position for over seventeen years and have had the opportunity to work with many attorneys in a wide variety of matters. Rarely do I find one as personable, professional, attentive, & thorough as Ms. Lamanna. I am never disappointed with her advice, her follow-through, her patience and her willingness to help me interact effectively with our employees when needed. It’s almost as if she is part of our staff.
I highly recommend Ms. Lamanna for any company with immigration needs. I am certain you will be as impressed as I am." Martin S. - various employee H-1B visas and labor certification applications; I-9 employee compliance

First, how she paid attention to details, which is often crucial in a complicated case... Her precision in everything she did, whether it be writing or research, and, finally, I knew I could get in touch with Julia any time of the day... whenever I needed to.
