“The Right Immigration Attorney Makes All The Difference”

May Law Group, LLC, has successfully filed immigration petitions for almost every type of U.S. visa. Valerie L. May, our lead immigration attorney, has filed thousands of immigration petitions with overwhelming success. Attorney May’s approval rate for many immigration petitions is 100% and, for even some of the most difficult petitions in immigration law, is between 98 to 100%.*

A number of Attorney May’s immigration petitions have made new immigration law in the areas of J waivers, extraordinary ability, and removal of conditions. The attorneys at May Law Group frequently deal with complex and difficult immigration cases. We have successfully filed cases that other attorneys have said could not be approved. The immigration lawyers at May Law Group strive to win approvals for our clients and this frequently requires working evenings and weekends, doing tireless research, and putting in extra effort. We love practicing immigration law and share in our clients’ joy when their immigration cases are approved.
