I had a very complicated case, and the judge ordered me to be deported from the USA . I tried to get in touch with a couple of lawyers and not one of them was brave or gave me a hope that I can reopen the case again. I called Ms. Meri Ponist, and she was very helpful. She told me that she’s will do her best to save me from deportation, and she really did! I wanted to write this review to thank her and her entire team for the amazing job! I suggest to anyone who has a very serious and complicated immigration case to contact her office. Thank you so much! I am very grateful to you guys, and I wish you more success, blessings and good fortune!

Meri is seriously a phenomenal lawyer with a lot of experience and I was granted for my case purely due to her effort and diligence. Thank you!

I was granted a permanent resident status in US after fourteen years. My attorney, Meri S. Ponist, did a great job helping me with my green card. I had consulted many prior attorneys about my case, and all advised it was impossible for me to become a green card holder in the US. Attorney Meri S. Ponist took over my case and two years later, my status was approved. I am extremely greatful to her for her hard work. Thank you!
