  • Svetlana helped me apply for VAWA, and completely changed my life. I lived in fear before and my spouse was always threatening to report me to immigration, and with no way to support myself I was afraid to leave her, but Svetlana advised me to file for VAWA and I got my work authorization very quickly. I have since left the abusive marriage and I am living new happy life. Svetlana is great immigration lawyer that I can recommend to anyone.

  • We were referred to Svetlana by a family member who spoke very highly of her, as she was able to win their case after two other attorneys could not, we used her to apply for a U-VISA, she was able to convince the DA office to certify us for the U-visa and filed everything with the USCIS within a month. She is a very strong immigration lawyer.

  • My Application for Naturalization N-400 was initially denied due to an arrest I had 6 years ago. I hired Mrs. Prizant and she helped me gather the necessary evidence to counter the arrest, she also attended the naturalization interview with me and argued with the officer on why the arrest should not affect me naturalizing. I am now a US Citizen, thanks to this amazing immigration lawyer.
    Mahmood, Client
  • I hired Svetlana to help my son become a United States Citizen as I had him oversees and was not married to his mother.  Svetlana knew immigration law like no one else we consulted. Because the law on derived citizenship was changed a few times and most attorneys we spoke to had no clue. She just a good lawyer, always answers calls and ready to help, needles to say that my son will soon become united states citizen.
  • I've dealt with many attorneys in the past but Svetlana was the most honest attorney that I ever worked with and she really cares about her clients. I could always reach her by phone. She always answered my phone calls, and if I left a message, she called back promptly herself. I wish she had worked on my case from the beginning, I would have saved time and money, with her help I finally got a green card after 10 years of going to different attorneys.

Svetlana came highly recommended by a friend, and although I already pursued the case twice unsuccessfully with two different attorneys, Svetlana was able to win my case. The overall success of this case was due to her vast knowledge and firm handling of the situation. I would highly recommend Svetlana to any and all who seek assistance."

    Yousr, Avvo
  • My husband and I hired attorney Prizant to come with us to an interview with the USCIS to remove conditions on my green card, and we were so happy we did. When the decision was not issued in three months, she filed a petition requesting a decision, it came within a week and I received my permanent green card. If it was not for her professionalism we would most likely have to go for a second interview and my Green Card would have been denied.
