I am a Canadian professional who … interviewed attorneys both in NY state, and in California, before selecting Mr. Gafner.

Mr. Gafner was forthright and professional from the get-go (the initial consultation), unlike the Palo Alto attorneys I had also consulted. Once I decided to become I client, he remained prompt, professional and no-nonsense, and he was clear in outlining, explaining and confirming what I had to do, and which documents were required. He was also very quick in getting back to me throughout the process, in understanding my business needs and the structure of my case for USCIS, and in explaining correspondence to me.
Chris has both a scholarly and practical understanding of US immigration laws, and an ability to gauge a client’s need and speak directly to all steps within the process, as well as manage expectations. Incidentally, my outcome was successful.

While we could have gone through the process on our own, Chris’ help and knowledge of the immigration system helped us navigate the process more smoothly. Hiring Chris was one of the best investments we’ve ever made.

He emailed to remind us everything USCIS expected from us and every important date we needed to remember, especially the day before scheduled USCIS appointments.

Chris Gafner, a Competent and Committed Immigration and Naturalization ATTORNEY

I am a College Dean and a full Professor at a major University in the Southern US. Several months ago, I married a Tanzanian belle in her country and began the long process of bringing her to the States. To be absolutely reassured in the process, I came across the name of the Chris Gafner Law Firm, located in New York. Despite the distance, I developed instant trust in Attorney Gafner, as soon as I began a conversation of my case with him. He explained to me in the clearest terms what the process would be like and how long it would take. He encouraged me to be optimistic about the prospects and reassured me that everything would be fine as along as I listened to him and we worked together. I thus followed all his advice meticulously.

 He requested from me all necessary information the government was asking for. I complied. He read and proofread every piece of information I sent him and his Firm. Attorney Gafner would then make his own adjustments, asking me to verify the accuracy of my own statements and of his own suggestions, which were designed to improve the application and bring my wife here. As a result, the process progressed flawlessly, and my wife is with me now. In fact, she was awarded the Green Card or Permanent Residency as soon as she arrived in the United States. Even after she entered the US, Attorney Gafner continued to contact me, letting me know that he was available for any advice I needed.

 I was fortunate to have Attorney Chris Gafner (and his Firm) as our immigration lawyer. I would therefore have no hesitation to refer anyone to him, completely confident that he would be as effective and efficient as he was in our case. Thank you, Attorney Gafner, for your competence, your unwavering commitment to your clients, and your availability whenever we needed to communicate with you whether by letter or fax or email and phone. Continue your excellent work for all those families that desperately need to be reunited with their loved ones. Thank you, again, Attorney Chris Gafner!!
