Sojourner Law helped me respond to my RFE on my AoS/I-485. Immigration is stressful as it is and RFE can add a great deal of stress. Ryan and Monica responded quickly to my search for a lawyer and were very responsive throughout the process. Their guidance was extremely helpful and knowing that I was in good hands was a stress-reliever. Everything was done in a timely-manner and well before the deadline."
