"Put simply, Sky USA Law is fantastic. I found them through googling and my gut gave me no question, but nonetheless I researched 10 different immigration lawyers, from large companies to smaller. None of them made me feel as comfortable as this firm. I felt like they had more knowledge of the O1 process and were able to answer every question I had without the fluff. SKY USA Law is a great immigration firm and I fully recommend you use them. James-Gray"
