My case really started over 25 years ago when I came to this country from the Caribbean. Being naive, I was fooled into being involved with a situation that created long-lasting consequences in my life. I hired an attorney years ago to try to fix my status and paid many thousands of dollars but got no results.
I have known Attorney Okoh-Brown personally for over 30 years. She has always been a fighter and high achiever. Always. As an athlete she was driven and always wanted to win. I see that same qualities in her as a lawyer. I must admit I never told her about my immigration issues because it was something that I did not easily share with anyone due to having a very successful career. Finally, 3 years ago, I decided to share my situation with her. She immediately wanted to help and said she loved challenging cases. She started researching right away and trying to find a way to win my case. She warned me there were no guarantees but she would fight hard for me but would never risk my life here in the U.S.
She went through several avenues to remedy my situation. She ran checks. We discussed every step of the way the risks involved and whether to proceed. In the end, she did a thorough analysis and although she felt good about the outcome, she left the decision entirely up to me on whether to take a chance since it was ultimately my life.
Well I am ecstatic to report that yesterday, December 4, 2014, after all the hard work, time, and effort expended by The Okoh-Brown Law Group, I was granted permanent residency in this country. I cannot put into words how this has changed my life. I have been in limbo for a quarter of a century, a virtual prisoner in this country unable to leave, unable to go visit family, unable to take jobs that required international travel, and having people try to use my status as a weapon against me.
Now I get to live a new life! The world is now open to me. I no longer have to worry about leaving my kids or being a second class citizen. If you are reading this and trying to decide what lawyer to hire, you need to understand that attorney Okoh-Brown is the best! She will fight for you as if she is fighting for a family member. She will keep you updated on everything that is going on and she will be fair and honest with you. She really cares. The night before my case was decided, she texted me a prayer. I do not know too many lawyers who would do that. If she cannot help you, she will tell you that. I paid the other attorney five times, yes 5 times, what I paid her and got no results. And now because of her I have my life back again.
There are no words, as I said, none that can express how I feel and what this means to me. And there is absolutely no way I can ever thank her. But for her, I know doing a job well and knowing that she is making a difference to help immigrants in this country is thanks enough. Do not hesitate to hire her for your case, especially if it is complicated. Unlike many lawyers, she does not run away from the difficult cases and will not stop until she gets results.
