I had an excellent experience working with Thomas Arkell and the Arkell Immigration Team for my green card application in EB-2 category. The green card application process went very smoothly and my green card was approved without any issue and RFE. The team is highly professional. They responded to all of my inquiries very promptly and comprehensively. I highly recommend them for immigration petitions.
After I learned that I had only 10 business days to live in US on valid H1 status in 2014, I spoke to Thomas Arkell and discussed my situation. He immediately gave me an option to submit immigration petition under EB1- extraordinary ability through concurrent filing of I-140 and I-485. Tom worked with me day and night including weekends to file my petition in 9 days, that not only gave me a valid immigration status to live in the states but I also received EAD in two months and got I-140 approved in four months. Dunn Law firm also filed my successful immigration petition under NIW category. Tom possesses high knowledge in immigration laws and regulations and is always willing to speak over the phone in case of emergency. I absolutely enjoy working with them and like their genuine and timely services. I highly recommend Dunn Law Firm, LLP.
The Arkell Immigration Team was an absolute pleasure to work with. Mr. Arkell is an excellent Attorney and my immigration process was very smooth from the time I contacted him. The team is exceptionally knowledgeable, and they were very efficient in handling my case. I went through Consular Processing for my case as I was living in Canada. The Consulate was not responding to schedule my appointment and their processing times were very long. I had a job offer from Texas A & M and desperately wanted to get my appointment expedited. The Arkell Immigration Team helped in expediting my appointment and I was issued my immigrant visa stamp to come to the U.S. I am now settled in at Texas A & M University and it is all because of the hard of the Arkell Immigration Team. I highly recommend Mr. Arkell and his team to anyone considering applying for a Green Card.
I had a great experience with Attorney Arkell and his assistants at Dunn Law Firm. Arkell and his assistants were attentive and flexible and tried always their best to accommodate my busy and sometimes hectic schedule. Their website is well done and has given me the opportunity to work on my application from home or the office and to check its status in real time. I have referred at least 4 colleagues to their law firm and I will gladly continue to support them.
I cannot thank Mr. Arkell and the Dunn Law Firm enough for their assistance and professionalism regarding the NIW cases. It was so relaxing and refreshing to be Mr. Arkell’s client during the NIW process. Mr. Arkell and his firm provide a very professional and highly organized service. They are very responsive and reachable as well. I had such a successful experience with them that I have introduced more than 20 people to Mr. Arkell for their NIW petitions. I am glad to say that all my friends came back with the same experience as mine.
I am writing to share my great experience that I have had with the Dunn Law Firm. I received my green card in less than a year and I don’t think I could have done it without them. I have since referred my close friends who are also currently applying for the NIW. They are an extraordinary, very knowledgeable and professional team and they made the whole NIW process simple from my first consultation to the moment I received my green card. Thomas Arkell and his team were very easy to communicate with and answered all my queries promptly.
I am extremely happy to report that my family and I have received our Green Cards. I benefited from the legal services of Thomas J. Arkell and the Arkell Immigration Team of the Dunn Law Firm. Dunn Law Firm offered the best price I could find, and based on my experience and discussions from other Green Card applicants, likely the best service in the business.
I am a Canadian Aerospace Engineer and Pilot with multiple advanced degrees in Aerospace Engineering as well as a graduate of the United States Naval Test Pilot School. My work is in the field of flight test education, as such, my proposed endeavor did not lend itself to the typical description of merit. After researching multiple options, I decided to contact Mr. Arkell and send him my CV.
I signed a contract with Tom at the end of October 2018, my file was prepared by his office. My I-140 was approved in mid-March 2019 after a successful response to an Request for Evidence (RFE). I can not overstate the impressive timeliness of this I-140 approval, Tom was able to ensure an approval within in only a few months, even with an RFE. The legal assistance in responding to the RFE was included in the flat fee. Even with retrogression, we received our Cards in October 2019. In summary, Tom and his staff were able to get our Green Cards within 12 months of signing a contract despite an unprecedented level of scrutiny within the USCIS, a complex RFE and retrogression of the EB-2.
From the moment I signed the contract with Mr. Arkell, he and his staff were diligent, thorough and effective. He and his staff always responded to inquiries in a timely manner and did an excellent job of explaining a complex and intimidating process to someone with limited knowledge on the subject.
If I were to change anything in the process on obtaining a Green Card, the only thing I would have done differently is I would have contacted Tom earlier. If Tom offers you a guaranteed successful application, you are likely to receive a Green Card under even the most arduous conditions. If he can successfully petition a complex abnormal applicant during immigration reform and high visa demand, you are unlikely to have any problems with your application.
Thank you Arkell Immigration Team!
How did I find out about Dunn Law (and Thomas Arkell)? I searched on google. Of the 50 or so Law firms I found and contacted, Thomas Arkell rose above all from the get go. No other attorney would even talk to me without consultation fees (I was not asking any case specific questions and they never asked to see whether I was a qualified candidate) except Thomas Arkell. To me, that was a litmus test. For Mr. Arkell, it was not about the money, it was about the process. From my experience working with Thomas Arkell, only a few of the testimonials come even close to describing the commitment of Dunn Law Firm to their clients. They made a hard/stressful/uncertain process seem like a walk in the park. They made me feel like the only person they had on their schedule every day. Their streamlined process is fool proof from start to finish. Even though I thought that I was very thorough during the application process on my side, I was amazed and very impressed at how many small errors were caught by Mr. Arkell’s team. I can attest that they do go through every single line of every document you provide. Mr. Arkell’s team has your back from start to finish. Now, one more thing: Everything was done electronically for me. I was able to scan and email all documents (including recommendation letters) which made it very convenient. The only thing I could not get away with scanning was the final document to be sent to the USCIS. This saved me a lot of time and hassle.
I have already recommended a few friends to Mr. Arkell. They all have nothing but great things to say about him and his team. I, without hesitation and wholeheartedly, recommend Mr. Thomas Arkell for all of their immigration related services. You will never regret working with them.
Mr. Arkell is an exceptional immigration attorney, and I strongly recommend him and Dunn Law Firm for all NIW cases. He honestly assessed my case and meticulously guided me through entire process. Interestingly, my case was declined before I hired him. He was confident about my case and it was approved as he expected. His paralegals were very professional and courteous. I sincerely thank Dunn Law, Mr. Arkell and all staff members for their dedication and commitment to help me continue to live my dream.
It was my extreme honor to get introduced to this law firm by one of my friends. They are very professional and organized and most importantly, very accessible. I mean you can hear from them whenever you need them or have any questions. I strongly recommend them to lots of my family members and friends and wish them more success in future.
Mr. Arkell is a very experienced Immigration lawyer. He helped file my NIW petition with a Master’s degree being my most advanced level of degree. I was surprised at the amazing speed the process took (I-140 filed on the 24th of December and I had my green card in the mail on the 12th of May). All these were possible because of Mr. Arkell and his legal team’s expertise and wealth of experience in immigration law especially NIW petitions. I have already recommended him to three of my close friends who are also interested in securing Mr. Arkell’s services.
In order to qualify for the National Interest Waiver, the following three requirements must be met:
