  • Great Immigration Attorney.
    After consulting several immigration attorneys in early 2012 I discovered Michael Markovitch. I had just married overseas in December of 2011 and needed to get my wife to the states. During our first meeting it was clear the Michael was very knowledgeable of the immigration process and had answered my questions very completely and professionally. Michael warned us that the immigration procedures were very time-consuming and my wife and I were prepared for this. Once the very long process was done, we received our US Embassy interview appointment rather quickly. I flew to be with my wife. We were interviewed together by a very well-spoken and very articulate interviewer who was fluent in both our languages. After the interview the interviewer said to my wife, "Welcome To America". We received her Visa in about a week. Upon arriving at JFK in New York, her info was "in the system" and my wife was given a cursory interview and we were FINALLY together!!!!!!!
    Within 2 weeks my wife received her green card and within another week or so she received her SS card. My wife was settling in to our new life in America with all the documents needed. My wife found work within 6 weeks of arriving.
    We feel that Michael was instrumental in making sure that all the T's were crossed and I's we're dotted making my wife's transition as smooth as possible. We have already recommended Michael to at least a dozen people in the same or similar situation. My wife and are very grateful to Mr. Markovitch's legal immigration representation. Thank You Michael.
    Sincerely,
    Raul & Natalia
  • I had H1B issues recently and sought Michael's services. He was very helpful, professional and responded in time. I would highly recommend Michael to my friends.

  • Michael helped both wife, before I married her, and then myself with our immigration cases. My wife actually referred me to Michael.
    Along the way Michael was on top of everything and always kept me informed.
    Along the years I have referred several friends to Michael and they were all extremely satisfied with the work Michael performed and got great results. I will keep recommending Michael's services to my friends & family anytime.

  • After speaking to some acquaintances in England and the United State about finding an immigration attorney in New York city, the name Michael Markovitch was mentioned on several occasions. I was told to discuss my situation with him since this was not going to be one of the simpler cases. I was seeking to relocate my family from England to the United States as I had received an offer from an American financial institution to work for them in New York. Not only did Mr. Markovitch provide me with a clear framework as to the business visa I should be focusing on, once his office prepared the case, I was most pleasantly surprised how quick the approval was received. I would definitely tell those looking for a highly qualified immigration attorney to speak to Mr. Markovitch before proceeding with their difficult immigration case.

  • I was very much impressed by the efficiency with which our lawyer Michael Markovitch handled my naturalization case. Most communication were via e-mail, and all of our concerns, however minor, were promptly addressed. In addition to his efficiency, Mr. Markovitch provided me with personal support at a time when it was most needed, the nerve-wracking days before the scheduled interview with the USCIS. He reassured me and alleviated my fears. To conclude, it took only four and a half months from the date our application was filed to the time we received the green card for which we were applying, and his guidance made the whole process more efficient and less stressful than it would have otherwise been.

  • I am writing this to let others know everything that The Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch has done for me. I retained the Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch to get me permanent residence based upon my employer sponsoring me. Mr. Markovitch spent a great deal of time and expertise to get the labor certification filed by my employer on my behalf certified after attempts by other lawyers had failed in the past. Two prior cases had been denied and I was beginning to feel that my dream to live permanently in the United states was not going to happen. Michael Markovitch’s knowledge of the laws and process finally allowed for me to get my petition and ultimately Green Card approved. I am most grateful for Michael H. Markovitch’s involvement in my case and for his diligence and effort.

  • When I decided to apply for Green Card through marriage to an American, I wanted to find the right attorney to get real help. I was told that many of them pretend to be experts in their field but in reality they are not. A friend of mine who recently received his Green Card strongly suggested that I see Michael Markovitch before proceeding. I called Mr. Markovitch’s office, made an appointment and met with Mr. Markovitch. During our first meeting, he clearly explained to me the process and he gave me a checklist listing the steps which were to be taken and which documents we needed to present to the USCIS. Mr. Markovitch himself came with us to the interview. Within three months after filing the marriage case, I received my Green Card. Mr. Markovitch’s handling of my case took out all the nerves and apprehension I had before meeting with him. For anyone seeking a knowledgeable, friendly and compassionate attorney, I would, without any hesitation, recommend that they see Michael Markovitch.

  • I was looking for an attorney to help me obtain a working visa as a professional. It’s commonly referred to as an H-1B visa. Three different sources recommended that I consult with Michael Markovitch. I called his office and a consultation meeting was promptly scheduled. Mr. Markovitch clearly explained to me the type of visa I should seek. He worked with me and my employer-sponsor, explaining step-by-step what was required from us. Mr. Markovitch successfully got my case approved in a very short time. After hearing of all the horror stories people have had with immigration attorneys who really didn’t know what they were doing, it was very refreshing in dealing with such a qualified and experienced immigration attorney such as Michael Markovitch.
    Eitan, New York, New York
  • Prior to choosing an immigration lawyer, I did a lot of research in trying to find the most qualified lawyer. During my research, I came across the Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch. After meeting with him, I came away with the conclusion that I couldn’t have asked for a better attorney! He handled my case in a professional, honest manner, stayed in touch and is a very knowledgeable attorney, which is important as immigration laws are constantly changing.
    Eliana, Brooklyn, New York
  • From my experience going through the green card process with my previous employer using another firm, it was literally night and day. Michael Markovitch was both professional and detail-orientated, letting me know the hurdles through every step of the process. Any queries that I may have had were responded to quickly and promptly. Having someone you can trust to navigate through all of the requirements is key.
    Eyal, Los Angeles, California
  • I greatly appreciate the hard work and high level of professionalism demonstrated by Michael H.

The Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch did a remarkable job!
    Keiko, Tokyo, Japan
  • Back in 2007, I found myself in an immigration predicament. I was advised to contact The Law Offices of Michael H. Markovitch to find out what my options were. I was very impressed by their willingness to not only give me advice but to also pursue my case and represent me in what was a very time sensitive matter. Attorney Markovitch worked closely with me and the agency which sponsored me by keeping us up to date on where we were in the process and additional information we needed to submit to solidify the case. In no time at all I heard from Attorney Markovitch informing me that I was granted my work visa. I will always be grateful for the support they provided to me.
    Robert, Toronto, Canada
  • A friend of ours referred us to Michael Markovitch because of his excellent experience in immigration matters. From the first meeting we had together, he showed his professionalism and made me and my husband feel that we were being taken care of and that our case was important. In 2006, he helped me obtain my permanent residence. We were truly blessed and we highly recommend this firm to anyone who is struggling with the immigration process
