  • Testimonials


    I was recommended to Katerina Barquet by an art market colleague. I am a Brit living in New York and my two different work visas were not renewable. Katerina recommended a Green Card under the Exceptional Ability scheme. She guided me through the whole process in a professional, expert but also friendly manner. She was always available to answer queries and submitted the application on time. Her fees were far less than I had been quoted by a New York immigration lawyer who demanded $850 just for a preliminary 30 minute meeting, and he seemed more interested in receiving a large fee than my actual situation. Katerina and her team followed up on my application and I got approval within 3 months - though the actual Green Card took longer due to the Homeland Security backlog.

    After deceptive experiences with two different lawyers in Miami, a friend recommended me Katerina Barquet and I’m glad she did. She is the best lawyer you can hope for. She listen, she is professional and patient, she find you the best solution for what you need. She build my case for my green card in no time and we received an positive approval in a record time. Since I met her, I sent her multiple of my friends and colleagues and they all happy with her too. I definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a lawyer.

    Working with Katerina was an excellent experience for me. She executed what she promised from the beginning. I met her when I was in the middle of choosing what to do. She quickly understood my needs, and the entire process was smooth. If every lawyer works with the same tenacity and passion of Katerina, the legal world would have been different. She built my case in a few days, and when we got approved, it was only a confirmation of the great job done. I wouldn’t choose anyone else for my family and me.

    I was first recommended Katerina by a close friend of mine who was already working with her. After reviewing the pieces of a messy visa case with her, she recommended to go for the EB-1 Exceptional Abilities Green Card, believing that a well made petition would get a positive approval. In less than 4 months she was able to guide me through all the steps of the process, and build a strong case that got us a positive approval in record time. She was always available to answers my questions and fears, and always had a plan B in case something wouldn’t go in the way we wanted. We are now processing the final steps of the process, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else than her to guide me through those.
