“Very Straight and Caring Anna is very caring and straight with you. Don't be fooled by people who want an attorney tell them everything is ok when it is not. Go to them if you want straight answers and will help to get done what you need to get done.”

“Excellent!! Anna was highly recommended to me by a former client of hers and a close friend of mine...I was so happy when I got my O-1 approval! Anna is very, very nice and reliable and her assistants are the same!”

“EXCEPTIONAL LAWYERS. This is the best immigration law firm I have come across in a long time. These lawyers are passionate about what they do. They truly care. I say this because I have met a lot of lawyers that do not even return phone calls from clients. I truly recommend the Asherson, Klein and Darbinian office because they took my very difficult case, put in a lot of time and attention and successfully completed my case.”

“FANTASTIC AVVOCATO. The best avvocato in America. Grazie Mille per la sua assistenza. Your fantastic team assistenza risolvere il mio problema. Ms. Darbinian, You are the Best: Bellisimo. You make the Impossibile, Possibile. After staying illegal for so many years, I am again able to travel. I am in Italy with my family because you help me achieve the American Dream. I will see you in two weeks when I travel back to America with my new visa. I will never forget what you did for me. GRAZIE MILLE.”

"... I would also like to thank your staff who have what it takes to get things done. But I would really like to say thank you to Nadia, as well, as she has been superb to me and really spent time with me."
