Client Reviews

We created this Immigration Testimonial section to serve three very important functions. First, it allows current and former clients an opportunity to share their experiences with our immigration law firm including immigration attorney Eliza Grinberg, immigration attorney Alexander J. Segal, and immigration attorney Melsida Asatrian. Second, it allows potential immigrants an opportunity to hear directly from our clients about their experiences with our immigration law firm, their successes, and their opinions on our immigration attorneys and immigration lawyers support staff. Third, it allows our immigration law firm, both immigration attorneys and immigration lawyers support staff, to candidly learn more about our current and former clients' experiences with our immigration law firm.

Please note

That prior results do not guarantee similar outcome as every case exists in a specific set of circumstances and, hence, is unique.

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Mrs. Eliza Grinberg. Dear Eliza, thank you very much for the help and work you did. I am finally starting my new life here in New York. It’s been 7 years since my case was open in 2006. And 4 years and 2 attorneys in, I was recommended by my friend to go for a consultation to Law Offices of Grinberg & Segal, P.L.L.C. I did receive very personal and compassionate approach to my case from Mrs. Grinberg. She have thoroughly explained to me my situation, and guided though the process. All of my emails and calls were promptly answered. The office staff followed up with all the documentation that I needed to submit, I felt I was treated with professionalism and efficiency. Mrs. Eliza went over all the details of my case and carefully prepared me for the Individual Hearing. I also want to give my regards to one of the staff members in particular, Hasan. He is very knowledgeable and very helpful. I highly recommend the services of Law Offices of Grinberg & Segal, P.L.L.C. We are all unique and different, and at this office you will get the necessary attention.

I have been Eliza Grinberg's client for a few years. Through Ms. Grinberg's professional and persistent efforts I was recently granted asylum to the United States. I am thankful for Ms. Grinberg's support. I found Ms. Grinberg to be extremely professional and competent. She was always well-prepared and familiar with every aspect of my case. In addition, she was able to navigate through very complicated court procedures and knew how to handle all court personnel, some of whom had difficult personalities. She demands a lot from her clients but gives back more. If you are serious about your case I wholeheartedly recommend Eliza Grinberg to be your attorney.

I am very grateful to Alexander Segal for all he has done for me. I had a very difficult case for political asylum, and him and his crew have done a tremendous job to succeed. The first lawyer who I hired did not prepare me for the court and I could not get a hold of him. He charged me the money he never worked for. He even put the wrong information in my case, which I had to pay for later at the court. That was the reason my application was denied at the court. I hired Mr. Segal who corrected all the mistakes my first lawyer had made and did all he could to prepared me for the court. The brief he wrote was so well made that the judge granted me the asylum without the second court. I can not thank Alex Segal and his crew enough for all they have done for me. It was very easy to work with these people, whenever I had a question I would call the office and they wold help me with useful information, especially Melissa, who is very knowledgeable. Thank you very much! Best Regards, Maksim and Elvira

То, что делает Александр Сигал - необъяснимо, невероятно. Мой кейс практически не имел хороших шансов на успех, т.к. был завален предыдущим ( очень, кстати, популярным в русскоязычной среде) адвокатом ............ - из NJ - халатность её работников вылилась для меня в бумаги на депортацию... Я сменила адвоката. Теперь я знаю- это никогда НЕ ПОЗДНО. Ювелирная работа Александра, высокий профессионализм его команды - и как результат : сейчас я гражданка США. Но это далеко не всё. Сегодня моя дочь, прибывшая по визе J-1( с условием обязательной "отсидки" 2 лет на родине) получила... Waiver ! Тот, кто понимает ЧТО это, знает- это практически невозможно. Да. Для других. Александр это СДЕЛАЛ. Моя дочь теперь может строить свою жизнь спокойно, достойно, независимо. Сказать, что я счастлива- это не сказать ничего. Жизнь и счастье детей для матери- больше, чем её жизнь. Я ОЧЕНЬ БЛАГОДАРНА судьбе, что она свела меня с Александром Сигалом. Это профессионал высочайшего класса. Даже не так - это просто ВОЛШЕБНИК. А как ещё назвать человека, делающего невозможное? Огромное спасибо Александру Сигалу, Мелиссе и всей команде за высочайший профессионализм! За "обыкновенные" чудеса. Мои искренние рекомендации . Если здесь совершили невозможное для меня и моей дочери - значит, это сделают и для вас! Удачи всем!

I've been referred to Eliza Grinberg by one of my lesbian friends and will never regret the choice I made, not only because she (we) won the case, but also because it has been a great pleasure to come in to this lawyers' office and see an excellent team work. All paper work is always done impeccably and on time. The staff is professional and super friendly. Everybody knows what she/he is doing. My interaction with Eliza during our meetings was always straight to the point and my case (a Russian lesbian seeking asylum in USA) was treated in a very individual way. No cliches were applied. Eliza is working with your personal biography, deeply entering in details of your life, which are relevant to the case, and helping you with every step in building your story. I was impressed by how precise her comments and remarks were and after each consultation, I saw my situation differently and finally got to a full understanding of how I must present my self in front of the immigration officer. Eliza and other lawyers also train your psychologically for the procedure of the interview and when you are there, you are well prepared and not distracted by anything. I've found Eliza Grinberg very human as well. The combination of professionalism, experience and caring about every single client makes this lawyer very successful in the field, winning the majority of the cases. And I, personally, feel extremely grateful and delighted by this collaboration. I have recommended her to my gay friends from Russia and other former USSR republics and I will continue to do so. THANKS!:)

Огромное спасибо Eliza Grinberg and Alexander J. Segal за помощь оказанную в моем иммиграционном деле по полит. Убежищу! Так получилось, что мой первый адвокат (имя его я не буду упоминать), взяв с меня $4500 не оказал мне никакой помощи: не выслушал меня, не подготовил документы надлежащим образом, самое главное, абсолютно не объяснил какие вопросы задает офицер и что от меня требуется, не появился на интервью с офицером, послал абсолютно незнакомых людей на мое второе интервью с офицером (другого адвоката и очень плохого переводчика), а потом и вовсе отказался от моего дела. Даже звучит неправдоподобно, но со мной действительно так поступил мой первый адвокат. К счастью, мне помогли Александр и Лиза, за что огромное им спасибо. Через 6 месяцев после того как они помогли мне подготовить все необходимые документы, я получила разрешение на работу (а с первым адвокатом я ждала этого 2 полных года и так и не получила!). Мое дело было очень сложным и длилось очень долго (6 лет, из которых четыре года мне помогали Лиза и Александр). Лиза оказала мне огромную поддержку и внимание. Мне уделили уйму времени на подготовку и я благодарна за то, что Лиза приехала в Missouri защищать мой case. Я несомненно советую Eliza Grinberg and Alexander J. Segal, они настоящие профессионалы. Если их услуги вам покажутся дорогими, то я уверяю, они этого стоят. Еще раз огромное спасибо!

I have known Wendy Barlow for many years. The Law Offices of Grinberg & Segal, PLLC and she have represented my family before the Bureau of U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services on several occasions. Most immigrants know it’s a challenge to prepare and fight before the USCIS. I find Ms. Barlow’s work ethic exceptionally impressive and her role in my immigration proceedings has been crucial. She is bright and hard working. As a foreigner who doesn’t understand how the US immigration laws work, I greatly benefitted from Ms. Barlow’s help. She is always ready to explain every single procedure and law in detail so one won’t be misled and confused. I have worked with many attorneys before, but Ms. Barlow is the only attorney who is available for her clients all the time. My every email and call was returned by her immediately. I live in Massachusetts and The Law Offices of Grinberg & Segal, PLLC is a New York state based firm; however, it didn’t stop Ms. Barlow from spending a few extra hours in Boston in order to gather more information for me. She knows her job, she does it intelligently, and most important, she doesn’t waste time. I highly recommend Ms. Barlow’s services to those who need high quality representation.

If you are trying to decide whether to hire Alexander J. Segal and his team to represent you or not, my advice would be to do so. Let me tell you, how I got to know about these guys and how they helped me with the hard immigration case i had. Well, i did have a really screwed up case and my old attorney stopped returning my calls and e-mails after taking about 3000$ from me. He did do some work, but it wasn`t helpful at all really. He showed up for two master hearings, prepared my "testimony" which had lots of mistakes, wasn`t full, had wrong information in it. So, I was in a tough situation. I had a lawyer and at the same time didn`t have one. My paperwork wasn`t ready for the individual hearing, no real work on the case was done, and almost no time left till the final hearing(two months or so). So after millions of phone calls and email, i gave up on my previous attorney, and started to look for someone else to represent me. But to be honest its not an easy job to find a good attorney. Everyone who looked at the case made by my lawyer wasn`t impressed at all. Some of them didn`t even believe what was in my testimony and thought i was making things up to stay in US. So, i wasn`t going anywhere with my case and was getting pretty worried of what to expect from the upcoming hearing. But one day, my really good friend, called me and said that she wanted me to meet someone. She said it was her friends relative and her name was Wendy, and she was an attorney from New York, and that she came down to our area for vacation. So, i go to my friends house and meet Wendy. And she wasn`t like all the other attorney i`ve met before, who is usually pretty dry and skeptic, tricky, almost rude. But not this time. Wendy(who is an attorney and Mr. Segal's associate) is truly a nice and caring person, at the same time a great professional. Very helpful and responsive. So, long story short- i hire attorney Segal (very good guy and very smart), and his team. We start preparing all the documents and stuff . Make the entire case from the scratch. Mr. Segal spent hours talking to me on skype (cause i leave far from NY and couldn`t come to their office in New York). And soon i`m getting my white card all thanks to these guys! So, if you looking for immigration lawyer and want a professionals, who know what they doing and also would really care for you, you are in the right place.
