What Our Client Say About Us

Going through the immigration process can be very stressful and uneasy. I am glad that I chose to work with Anna and her team for my case. They handled my case promptly and professionally. Whenever I had questions or concerns, I could get responses from them quickly. I will trust them for my future immigration cases and recommend her business to my friends.

Hiroe I.

My experience was extraordinary, Anna was knowledgeable. She was very polite, she handled my case to a successful end. I RECOMMEND Anna H. to anyone with no less than a tough case. She’s indeed indeed great.

Caesar P.

My wife was an illegal immigrant for many years. We had been to several lawyers before Anna and they were all okay. I don’t think we really knew what a good lawyer was until working with Anna. She listened to our problems, asked probing questions and was very honest with us. My wife’s case was not an open and shut case. Anna took the time to explain to us the risks and she even did some additional research to be sure her answers were 100% accurate. I appreciate that she didn’t try to paint a rosy picture just to get us as clients. Her honesty is one of her greatest assets in my opinion. We ultimately faced a major set back in my wife’s case (no fault of Anna’s) and Anna stood by us while we struggled with family separation. In the end Anna and her team were able to secure a positive outcome for our family. I can honestly say I don’t know if my wife and I would be living in the United States today (legally) if it wasn’t for Anna and her team. I can’t recommend Anna’s services enough. Her prices are fair and her entire practice is 100% professional. Anna Hysell is a breath of fresh air in a world that has become increasingly corrupt and dishonest.
