Amazing Lawyer

I hired Edith to help me with my O1 visa application. She went above and beyond with helping me put it together, making my case as strong as it could possibly be. She was very thorough, knew every detail, and helped me spend my time more wisely and on the things that actually mattered. She’s very knowledgeable and knows what she’s talking about.

Very Professional & Honest

I contact Ms. Nazarian for consultation regarding a Humanitarian Parole application for some family members in Afghanistan. Ms. Nazarian was extremely helpful in guiding me throughout the process and advising me on the best course of action. She was extremely professional and diligent.

Truly Outstanding Lawyer

Edith Nazarian is an extraordinary immigration lawyer. I’ve been working with Edith for several years now, having worked in two O1-B applications, and couldn’t be happier. Both applications got approved on the first try without a need for an RFE. I always recommend her to my friends in the ex-pat community.
