After a first unsuccessful attempt at obtaining a green card by another immigration lawyer, Pamela Hartman was able to put together an impressive EB-1 dossier for me...Not only did she do her research, but she truly cared personally about my case, and put a great amount of detail into it, which ultimately lead to success. She knows the immigration field inside-out.
