Throughout the whole process, Legalpad answered my numerous questions with great detail. I got an overall positive feeling about my application, encouraging me to put extra effort into it. When Legalpad presented me with the final packet, I was impressed with how well it had come together. Looking at it, I felt confident that it would go through approved and it did! I would highly recommend Legalpad for EB-1 and O-1 applications. The whole process of preparing the application took just a couple of months, which is much faster than what I hear from others!

| Legalpad | US Work Visa and Immigration ServicesThe entire process was possibly the most expedited admin work I've gone through, and it can all be attributed to the Legalpad team I was set up with. I have never heard of a 3 business day turnaround for petition acceptance, and I know multiple people who have gone through similar processes. From engagement to acceptance, I estimate it took a little under 3 months, which is amazing. Viren Mohindra

Moving your business to the United States is challenging and it can be especially overwhelming when you have to figure out how the immigration process works from scratch. Legalpad has all the qualities of an agile and modern startup and the expertise and talent of a large firm. I had my O-1 and later my EB-2 visas approved with no issues and Legalpad did all the heavy lifting. Highly recommended. Sofia Quintero

It really surprised me how well they understand that ourselves (visa candidate and sponsoring company) are not fully aware of the details for composing the required documents and information, and that we are always busy - so Legalpad team has been holding an invaluable amount of support and guidance for getting the blocking things done while taking up definitely the least amount of time possible from us. The quality of the letters and the arguments created for the case are impressively great! Anycart
