"I found Sky Usa Law while searching the internet for a lawyer with experience with the O-1B visa. I sent them an email with my information, background and particular situation, and they promptly replied and offered to set-up a free consultation through skype so we could discuss my case.

Their lawyer was very helpful and did not take the case until he verified I had all the categories I needed to file a successful petition.
He was always available whenever I had questions or concerns, and explained the process very clearly using examples from past cases.

The way we collected and shared documents, information, and letters through Google Drive was extremely practical. He made me feel like he cared about my case and always advised me in ways to make sure we create the strongest possible petition.

It felt like a collaboration, a very pleasant one that ended successfully, and I will gladly work with him again in the future. christophe"
