A life changing law firm.

Not only is Shaina one of the most intelligent people I have met, her character is what shined for me and my family.  Our initial greeting was not only productive and wholeheartedly down to earth, but she has this amazing ability to break down a problem into meaningful solutions where anyone can understand her process and workflow.  I cannot hope for a better person to have handled my immigration affairs.  I wish her continued success!

Shaina Silvers was referred to me through a friend of mine. The first time I met her she made me feel very comfortable in her abilities as an immigration lawyer. She listened to my concerns and issues very attentively as well as provided exceptional feedback and advice. Based on the two immigration cases I presented Ms. Silvers with, I noticed that she evaluated each case with careful attention to detail and addressed the concerns to each case. She was incredibly helpful to me through this whole process and she provided thorough expertise on the matter.

I cannot thank her enough for her hard work and dedication to both of the immigration cases. I have nothing critical to say about my experience with her and I appreciate everything she has done for me. Therefore, I would definitely recommend Shaina Silvers law services to anybody who is looking for assistance with their immigration matters.

I met Shaina years ago for my parents immigration case. She was recommended to me by a colleague and good friend. I was able to tell that she was an excellent lawyer from our very first consultation session; so it was a very easy decision for me to hire her. lo and behold, both my parents got approved and received their green cards in less than three months. I have been recommending Shaina to everyone in need of an immigration lawyer ever since. 
I recently got married, and needed Shaina's professional assistance. Yet again, Shaina delivered, and my wife's case got approved in no time. Shaina is highly professional, knowledgeable, and always eager to help. It has been a great honor to have worked with her! Thank you so much, Shaina!

Boris Borisov, Arlington, VA

"I would like to extend my appreciation and gratitude for your immigration and attorney services and for your professional work dealing with government agencies on my behalf, dealing with foreign embassies and advising me over the phone when abroad. Thank you and your team for filling those endless pages with data without any mistake and not missing a single dead line for my H1B and Permanent residency card cases. I also wanted to write this letter and thank you for taking my cases at HEART. Thank you for answering my hundreds of emails and many phone calls regardless of how valuable or meaningless my questions and concerns were.    As a result, I am only couple of blocks away from my citizenship. Without a doubt I will continue to use and to recommend your services."

R. Bryan Rumble, Hamilton,Ont, Canada

"Since 2012, Shaina has successfully obtained TN status for me so that I can continue to work in the U.S. in my field of cancer research.  I have found her to be extremely reliable, thoughtful, and proactive in seeking creative solutions to both expected and unexpected hurdles as she led me through the process.  We most recently completed our third successful approval.  If I ever had concerns about anything, she was only an email or a phone call away.   I am very pleased with her and the services she offers and hope to continue working with her in the future."     

Adrian Forsyth, Environmentalist

"With Shaina's help I became a US citizen. Our meetings were always on time,  pleasant and efficient. She is confident, knowledgeable, responsive and pleasant to work with at all times. Because of her skills I went through the application process with no anxiety and not a single glitch. I recommend her highly and without reservation."

Pavlina Steffek, Alabaster, AL

"To Anyone Looking for a Great Immigration Lawyer.

I have now been in the United States for years and without the hard work of my immigration lawyer that would be close to impossible.

She has been wonderful and easy to work with.  Everything has always been handled on time.  Even though I have not met her in person, I have been able to develop trust and a working relationship with her as a result of the work she has put in my case.

In today's technological world, most everything has been handled through email and the internet which has made the process fast, smooth and easy.  I cannot thank her enough."

Lima Beauvais, Alexandria, VA

"I had a wonderful and rewarding experience working with Shaina.  She handled my cases as if I were her only client.  Very dynamic and knowledgeable, she always brought a positive energy to every meeting.

She was very attentive to all my concerns while giving me sound legal advice on how to proceed with my case.  Very meticulous, she did not overlook any detail to ensure a smooth and fast process of our case.

As a result, my family and I were able to obtain our green cards eight months faster than the normal scheduled time.  I have referred to the Law Office of Shaina Silvers my own family and friends."

Mariana and John Thornton, Washington, DC

"We sought Shaina's advice in the changing of our immigrant visa status after her being highly recommended to us by a colleague.  WE found her to be extremely knowledgeable about the immigration process, exceptionally pleasant to work with, and highly efficient and competent in the provision  of her services, including a willingness to go the extra mile to address some particularities of our case.  We have not hestiation at all in recommending Shaina as your immigration lawyer."

Jennifer Kent, Professional Coach, Owner at The Guava Project

"Shaina has been one of the best attorneys I have ever consulted. I received a very clear description of the process for my case and having that understanding gave me a lot of comfort and reassurance. "

Hossam Mansour, International Development Professional

"I hired Shaina more than once for my immigration needs. She provided me with a timely excellent and personable service. Moreover; her hard work yielded good results for me and my family. What I like most about her, however; is how honest and ethical she is; she will always tell you the truth about your case and suggest the best course of action!
It was a pleasure to work with Shaina, and I recommend her without hesitation."  

Chad Marshall, Professional Sports Coach

"After having a not so great experience with a previous attorney, Shaina was recommended to us by a family friend. She has been nothing short of amazing!! She made the process so easy and simple even without being able to meet in person. She is extremely knowledgeable and was able to answer our questions and concerns. My wife and I always felt we knew exactly what was happening and what the next step was. We would highly recommend Shaina for your immigration needs."
