Atty Okoh-Brown helped me with my immigration papers. My case was a unique case. I came from the Philippines. My mom petitioned me before I reached 21 years old. Got my petition approved and my visa number updated. But was denied by USCIS because of adjusting my status to permanent resident because my mom was naturalized before I filed for adjustment and moved up my petition from Family base 2 to Family base 1, which led to a 10-year wait for my visa number to be updated.
I then went to a lawyer and consulted this. Paid almost 4k and was told that they already filed my adjustment of status. To my surprise, I got a letter from the Dept of Homeland Security for deportation.
I searched for another lawyer and Atty. Okoh responded to my request. She helped me with my papers and she represented me with my case. I am now a permanent resident and I was not deported, thanks to Atty Okoh-Brown.Read More
Extremely helpful and courteous

Lisa helped me get a fiancee visa for my fiancee and a visa for her son, and then their green cards. I had no idea how to go about either, and she made the process VERY easy. She sent me all the proper forms with detailed instructions for me to fill out, and she and her group did the rest. And she and her staff were very courteous and helpful with all my questions. We now successfully have their green cards with no hassle.

Lisa Okoh-Brown was very helpful to my case. She went above and beyond her call of duty to help me and family. She even travelled to Philadelphia to help with a federal case, related with immigration matters. She was a blessing to my family.

I hired Attorney Okoh-Brown to help me get my green card since she had previously helped my mother, sister, and brother. When I applied for my green card, it was denied because the immigration said I was not covered under 245(i). Attorney Okoh-Brown appealed the decision and won the appeal. Once again my green card was denied for the same reason and once again Attorney Okoh-Brown appealed the decision and won the appeal. My green card was finally approved. She really helped me and made my dream come true.

We were amazed at Lisa’s competence from the initial consultation. Every attorney my husband consulted in NY & Houston, while I was detained in Houston, TX detention center, stated that there was absolutely no possible way of me being released until my case was over, due to the fact that I was detained at the airport, trying to re-enter the US. Lisa was the only attorney who actually told my husband that there was an option…
She filed a parole application with ICE (based on the hardship my minor child would experience in my absence). The parole was granted & I was reunited with my family after exactly a month of being detained.
Although we reside in NYC, we decided to continue working with Lisa. My hearing was scheduled in Houston, TX immigration court for the following year. Lisa explained the procedures ,laws, strategy, and advised us on the documentation & witness requirements in order to present the strongest possible case. Lisa scheduled telephone sessions with me and all of my witnesses to explain the process and prepared them for the court hearing. While Lisa’s knowledge & experience in immigration law was obvious, she seemed to know very little about Ukraine (specifically, antisemitism in Ukraine, which was another approach to my case) and yet she took the time to research & learn about it, sharing all of her findings with me. In addition to filing for defense based on religious persecution, Lisa suggested filing a 212h waiver based on the hardship my daughter would experience should I be deported.
Lisa WON my case! It has been one of the most difficult & nerve-wrecking years in the life of my family, full of uncertainty & fears. And with Lisa’s help, this nightmare is over. I would highly recommend her for any immigration case, especially the difficult ones. Sincerely I.E.

I hired attorney Okoh-Brown to represent me in a child support case. Her rates were very reasonable. She was able to get my child support reduced almost 50%. And while we were at court, she stayed on top of what was going on at court and caught an error that would have caused us to be there all day. She also called me several times the night before to prepare me and to keep me updated on everything. During the mediation part of the case, she kept her cool and even got me to see reason at times during the process and stay focused on what was best for my child. I saw my child this weekend for the first time in a few months. Attorney Okoh-Brown promised to fight for my rights in the future and work with me and was not focused on how much money I had. I found her to be professional, compassionate, and knowledgeable. I will retain her services in the future and highly recommend her.
Definitely will recommend!!!

I am from Kazakhstan and hired The Okoh-Brown Law Group and they filed my petition in July 2014 and I was very happy with their service. They stayed on top of my case, called me whenever there was something to report. Called me to make sure that I had received my fingerprint notice and most importantly, prepared me completely for the interview. Because of Ms. Okoh-Brown’s attention to detail, she was able to spot a potential problem in my case that may have caused a denial which she prepared me and my husband to address at the interview. She also attended the interview with me. Every aspect of our case was reviewed by the attorney. As a result of her knowledge, experience, and expertise, we passed the interview yesterday, Dec. 3, 2014 with flying colors, and got an approval at the interview. I am so grateful for the service we received and the care Ms. Okoh-Brown showed my case. I will definitely use the firm in the future for immigration issues and, without hesitation, would refer my friends and family. G. H.
Very Pleased with the service

I hired The Okoh-Brown Law Group in 2010 when the U.S. government sent me a notice to come to court for removal/deportation proceedings. From the moment I met Ms. Okoh-Brown, I could tell she was a fighter and she promised she would fight for me. I am from Mauritius and I have been in the U.S. for many years, and have a wife and children here. The thought of having to leave them was very upsetting to me.
My case was very complicated and the attorney for the government did not want the immigration judge to approve my application to get my green card and stay in the country. Ms. Okoh-Brown took my case to trial and it was a hard fought trial. She met with me and my wife 6 weeks before the trial to prepare our testimony and go over everything with us so that we were fully prepared for, not only her questions at trial, but for the judge’s and government attorney’s questions.
She made a strong closing argument in my case and filed a closing brief to persuade the judge to grant my application. My trial was on 10/21/2013. I was so anxious waiting for the judge’s decision. Your life is on hold just waiting. Ms. Okoh-Brown at least saw to it that I had a work permit during this case so that I could work and support my family while waiting on the judge’s decision. When Ms. Okoh-Brown called on October 27, 2014 to tell me that the Judge had granted my application despite the government’s opposition, she and I celebrated the victory.
Ms. Okoh-Brown takes her cases personally and she is invested in the outcome of the case. It was a victory for both of us and I am eternally grateful for her and her assistant, Mayra, for all the hard work, dedication, care, professionalism, and just keeping me updated every step of the way. I can never repay her for helping me to remain with my family and see my children grow up. She is the best and I highly recommend her.

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.

It seems being a guy makes it an uphill battle, especially in law family courts. The courts tend to take sides, in most cases involving children, with the woman. Here I was facing a TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) that would have prevented me from seeing my children had it been approved by the court. I hire the office of Lisa Okoh Brown to represent me. Ms Brown went to work right away on my case and after putting in some due diligence, Attorney Lisa Brown completely crushed that TRO. She presented my case so well, the opposing attorney couldn’t say a word. Needless to say I will be seeing my children. Hiring an attorney is never cheap but if you have to, you might as well hire one that will go to work with passion on your behalf. Lisa does not take her clients’ cases and situations lightly. She will fight for you to the best of her ability and as best she knows how to. Would I hire her again? Absolutely. You will get your money’s worth out of Lisa. She even called and emailed on weekends about my case and sometimes she would stay awake until 3am in the morning making sure she was not leaving any stones unturned or missing any details. She hates surprises so she prepares hard and well. Best of all, she is honest about overall expectation of outcomes. She won’t sell you any pie-in-the-sky guarantees. She will tell you like it is.

I was in removal proceedings a short while back. The previous immigration attorney that I had only seemed to call for money. The firm was filled with lawyers and I saw my attorney maybe four times. I was passed on to other lawyers within the firm who didn’t seem to care. I just so happened to be driving down Bellaire at Hwy6 and saw Lisa’s sign. BEST decision I made! She took my case and fought for me. I was so afraid I’d get deported, that the day of my court hearing, I bought a ticket to leave Texas. Good thing we decided against it. Lisa appealed the case and as of February 2016, I am a naturalized CITIZEN! YES!!! Lisa got on her game and came out like a rockstar despite how difficult my case was. Her price was also very good compared to the firm of thieves who originally had my case. Do yourself a favor and HIRE THIS LADY!!
