I found John Lawit,LLC on google when I needed a help mostly. Many of positive reviews helped me to find here too but honestly location was the very close to me. I am not a person who is writing any review for good or bad but I am here to share my great satisfaction and appreciation toward Mr. Lawit and his staffs. I visited John Lawit’s office for N400 application question and he gave me clear idea of what I suppose to do. I could feel his professionalism in his words. I did exactly what he asked me to do and I am very thankful and satisfy with why I chose him. Law firm staffs are very friendly and Jenny is there right there for you if you need any question thru calls or emails. I am very happy with my choice I made and thankful with John Lawit, LLC’s professionalism, comfortable environment, and lawyer’s clarification. If you need a help, these awesome people are right there for you.

John is the best immigration attorney that I have ever met/interviewed/worked during my 6-month long search. I’d like to share my selection criteria below:
1. Integrity
2. Knowledge
3. Professionalism
4. Cost
When I met John in his office, he answered all my questions and kept asking me ‘any other questions?’, until I said ‘No’ with smiling. Then he started to input my information in his laptop. I had to stop him because I could not remember all the data that he needed. This gave me a great impression that John is caring about my case by ‘ACTION’ (different than some other attorneys just talking and talking without much details).
Recently, I wanted to discuss with him about the possibility of changing a service center. He responded my email very quickly and scheduled an appointment with me directly. What mostly amazing thing was that John even remaindered me of the next day’s appointment via email. He even asked me if a 30-minute meeting would be enough due to his next appointment conflict.
John has a great team as well. They are all very friendly and professional. By the way, the cost from John’s service is slightly cheaper than others, not even taking into consideration of John’s 40 years’ immigration attorney experience.

I highly recommend Mr. John W. Lawit as your immigration attorney. He is the best!

This guy is ONLY after the money, and I should have known from the start. He pocketed more than $8000 and DID not do his job; passed on my files to paralegals and only met with me to sign contract and receive my check. All is well if the forms to be submitted are no brainer and I ALWAYS prepared everything myself, but he won't follow up and put his own nose in the matter.
I was with this office for a few years and almost always only met with assistants and had to repeatedly call the office or email to be able to talk to him personally; when my immigration petition was denied at the beginning of this year, due to this office NOT providing the documentation that I had submitted and re-submitted on several occasions, he told me (AFTER THE FACT and AFTER pocketing all my money, which took me a couple of years to pay) that the case "was slated for failure from the beginning"!
Although I have the qualifications required, I then turned down an appeal as the whole petition had been VERY poorly documented and submitted, which was very obvious once I finally had copies of my files in my hands: a high school kid would have done a much better job, both in presentation AND in properly documenting the petition. He did not lift a finger in my case and I would have liked to sue him had I had a few hundred thousand dollar at my disposal just for this. After several other consultations with immigration attorneys, both in the state of New Mexico and out of state, I received several opinions confirming my findings and the advice has been that the qualifications and requirements were valid and fully satisfactory for my petition, but failed due to misrepresentation and plain disregard of my case.
I really do not understand how this firm can have 'excellent' rating.... and the more I do research on this guy, the more I find people who had either met with him in the past or asked for consultations and were very poorly impressed.
I recently switched to a 'less experienced' and 'smaller' firm and successfully resolved my case with one 10th of the cost.

Extremely professional, knowledgeable and patient. Can't believe most of my queries and anxieties were addressed over phone within minutes wherein other attorneys require us to schedule appointment several days ahead just & pay consultation fee just to speak.

It was great to work with John. I took consultation from John couple of times over last few months regarding my work permit, immigration status and Visa processing. It was very helpful in understanding the timelines, interpretation of immigration rules.John is very responsive, addressed questions clearly and quickly considering the urgency. Thank you very much John. Greatly appreciate.

John helped me get my employment based Green Card and I couldn't be any happier!! Elizabeth and himself were always very responsive to my emails and phone calls, answering all my questions really quick and easing out my mind when I was worried. They made sure to walk me through every step of the process, and prepare me for the final interview and made sure I have all the documents I need.

I appreciate all the time and attention they gave to my application to make it a successful one !! Thank you John and Elizabeth, I appreciate you !!

They will select the best options and fight for your immigration rights and benefits all the time, I felt comfortable hiring them.

One of my employees from Lebanon needed to acquire her permanent residency and it was not an easy journey, especially with the timing.
John's office ensured we were well informed and kept our confidence up in getting it done, which we did.

I called John’s office with an emergency immigration issue. I am not from the DFW area and I needed to find a local professional lawyer who could assist. I was working under extreme time constraints and required quick turnaround advice. John returned my call promptly and took the time to answer all of my questions regarding the issue I was facing. Without asking for compensation John conducted himself in a professional manner that you don’t regularly encounter these days. I highly recommend John for any immigration issues you have. I will be recommending his services to a client in need of navigating the US immigration system. Hats off to John!

I have consulted with different lawyers and nobody was able to guide me precisely about the solution to my issue until I met John Lawit, I find him very knowledgeable about all the immigration related laws, he showed me the solution to my immigration related issue and I also hired him to file for my Green card petition. And finally, after 7 months of waiting, I got the approval notice for my I-140. I am very happy and thankful to John Lawit and his staff member Jenny for filing my case. I will highly recommend him for all immigration related cases.

My green card had been stolen during an armed robbery that occurred while I was 7 months pregnant, The robbery put me into a period of great depression. Mr. Lawit came forward as a volunteer to help me. He got my applications straightened out, he convinced me to become a citizen.

While I thought what I needed was an extension of my green card, Mr. Lawit showed me that for just few dollars more in filing fees I could be a citizen and never have to meet with DHS ever again.

I am now a US. citizen and the people who attacked and robbed me are now in jail.

It is truly a privilege to write about John W. Lawit. As a Canadian in the current political climate, I was scared that I would not be able to remain working in the United States after I completed my postdoctoral fellowship (with OPT). After studying in the United States for 5 years, it was unsettling to know that I could easily be kicked out of the place that I called home. John did not only provide me with his invaluable legal expertise but also provided me with immense emotional support. John is reliable, charismatic, kind and dependable. In my time of uncertainty about my immigration status, I knew that I could rely on him to have all the answers. I want to thank him for his time and for never giving up on me and my anxiety about remaining in this country. He has made it possible that I can reside in the United States as a psychologist. I highly recommend John for anyone in need of the BEST immigration lawyer (5+ Star).

Like no other. Mr. Lawit got my family's Green Card by showing us the way to make investments and setting up businesses that got our EB-1 approval. We thought we would need to invest $1,00O,000. Mr. Lawit showed us how we could immigrate with only a $150,000 investment. No other lawyer told us about this. It took only 1 year.

My experience with the Lawit law firm was very positive. Mr. Lawit discovered the fact that my grandfather who was a US citizen passed citizenship to my mother. Through my mother I was able to complete my immigration after 12 years. No other attorney I had spoken to was able to solve my immigration issues.

Let me start with letting everyone know that John W. Lawit is the best immigration attorney. I have known Mr. Lawit's for past 8 years where he filed for my initial H1-B. Since then he has always been available for any consultation and guidance. His ability to solve complex situations easily makes your life so much easy. I had a situation wherein, I was in the process of H1-B transfer and the attorney of my new company was of no help. He was not even available to engage. I reached out to Mr. Lawit for the guidance and he really got things straightened out. I recommend Mr. Lawit to everybody who needs help with immigration as he is the most capable attorney and you can always trust him.

My sister had already gone through 5 US visa rejections in the past; I and my family did not know which route to go down as we had so much anxiety and so many questions. We had lost all hopes of my sister ever being able to visit me in the USA. Finding John through a friend was a blessing in disguise. John helped us through all of it and we are thankful for his patience in understanding our situation, and guiding us step by step. The happy ending to this story is that my sister finally got her visa. John handled the case very logically so that we would put our best step forward. He not only helped her prepare the application but also coached her for the interview, and these mock interviews really boosted my sister’s confidence level and helped her overcome her past failures. I feel fortunate to have found John, I would recommend John to anyone in a heartbeat.

John Lawit should not be an immigration lawyer. He took my money without working on my case. Very slow to respond to my emails (take more than 2 weeks to respond). I ended up firing him and wasted thousands of dollars.

Mr. Lawit has represented my case with ultimate professionalism and compassion. He not only has shown he is one of the best lawyers in the US but also all along the way he provided me support needed to ultimately become a US resident. He is knowledgable and experienced. Contarary to most lawyers he was always available to address the concerns I had. If you need representation in any immigration case I highly recommend Mr. John Lawit.

If I could give John Lawit 100 stars I surely would. I needed an immigration attorney to file on my behalf all the necessary documents for citizenship. After a thorough search on the internet, it appears that everywhere I looked lead me to one name John Lawit. I couldn’t be happier for the services he provided me. John made the whole process simple, stress and hassle free. His knowledge of immigration laws, his professionalism, his constant availability sets him apart from his competition. His assistant Jenny always gives you a courtesy call to give you updates regarding the process which shows that they always on top of the situation. If you need an immigration attorney, hiring John Lawit will be the best decision you’ll make.

We have used the immigration legal services of John Lawit for 12 years and during that time Mr. Lawit and his team was always devoted to us and has delivered high quality services to our full satisfaction to end in 1994 for completed services.

In 2015 and leaving abroad we had a new immigration issue and although 21 years have passed Mr. John Lawit and his actual team became altogether available for us in no time with goodness and understanding. We found a very collaborative team and received an excellent and prompt service from Mr. John Lawit to an end issue.

We would like to take this opportunity to present our thanks to a team who cares about people as we were very well treated and felt protected during the entire different processes which conducted to a perfect result at all time. Because of their dedication we strongly recommend to address all of your needs to this law firm as we affirm that you will be treated with good care. Looking at the web site it shows the professionalism of the proposed services in which you can entrust your concerns and we strongly suggest to make contact and see for yourself.

I would recommend Attorney John Lawit for immigration issues. He listens to your issues/concerns patiently and then consults the best way out. He will show you the situations which could/couldn't happen and their probable outcomes, which gives a great relief.

Mr. Lawit was my attorney for my green card and my naturalization. My marriage was the basis of my immigration.
As a court certified Arabic language interpreter who deals with attorneys all the time, I find Mr. Lawit to be by far the best immigration lawyer I have ever met. In fact most of the other immigration attorneys that I met on the job have been trained by Mr. Lawit. I do strongly recommend him for all your immigration needs particularly the cases that need an exceptionally experienced attorney like Mr. Lawit.

I was very happy with Mr. Lawit's work on behalf of my niece. My sister sent her daughter Mai to come stay with me and my family in the U.S. The family situation in China was impossible for Mai. My husband and I met with Mr. Lawit and he told us about Special Immigrant Juvenile Status (SIJ). I was appointed Mai's guardian and In less than 1 year Mai became a permanent resident. She is safe in her new home thanks to the help of Mr. Lawit and his staff.

This attorney is beyond outstanding!!

I was applying to immigrate to the U.S. through employment. I had a Master's degree and I thought I would be stuck in the EB-2 quota for my country India. I saw several attorneys before I was introduced to John Lawit. All of them told me that I would be stuck for many years in the EB-2 quota.

After interviewing me for about 20 minutes. Mr. Lawit found a way for me outside of the quota system as an EB-1. Today I have my green card. I got it in less that 12 months. I will hire John Lawit for help with my family and my naturalization
