We have been very pleased with the services provided by Richard T and his law firm since his initial representation for us back in January 1999.  Since then Richard has assisted us and various of our employees on a wide range of immigration issues. A company of our size with over 300 employees utilizes legal services covering a broad range of issues and we have found Richard and his staff to be responsive and seemingly always available to discuss whatever immigration issues that arise.  I am pleased to give a sincere recommendation to anyone or any company needing first class legal representation.

Tashijan Law group and Richard Tashijan were key’s on my working visa process and the following words just wanted to let know how pleased I was with the service provided. Early in 2012 Dragon Racing, an Indy Car race team, was in contact with me as they were looking for a top and well prepare engineer to integrate on their engineering group. Richard Tashijan and his team where in charge of my alien visa paperwork, as I become from Spain. Innumerable documents, which covered all my academic and work history up to today, were requested to build up the case on my extraordinary ability visa request. The service during all process has been exemplary and on high professional standing, my visa request wasn’t easy but they work it out. Their service was always on top of my case with a very detailed analysis of all the aspects. I am absolutely thrilled with my experience on working with Tashijan group and would highly recommend you to anyone. Thanks you for your professional services.

Like all clients (and, I believe I’m a serial one), we all tend to fall in love with our own new lives. But I would neither even start the very first step if I didn’t have the continuously great support and help from Tashjian LAW Group, nor could I overcome all the challenges I’ve been through for almost 4 years.
The Tashjian team has been always extremely professional and organized. Lawyer Fangzhou Ping, shows such impressive passion and caring about customers’ circumstances.  It was so easy to work with her; I always got my answers with patient explanation and helpful suggestions as much as she could.  The precise suggestions always make my legal decisions responsibly easier and immediate.I am and will be always looking forward to continuing my legal business with Tashjian professional team in the future.

When I moved last year to my current employer, I was assisted by Tashjian Law Group in processing my work visa transfer. I was able to obtain my H1B visa as well as my wife's H4 visa without any problem because of their help. It was also them who assisted me & my wife with our Green Card applications every step of the way, until we received our appoved permanent resident status from USCIS this month. I will always be grateful with what they had done for me and my family. Their professionalism and expertise with immigration matters had really made a huge difference. Thank you very much and may your company continue to provide better lives to your clients!

First of all, I would like to thank you for all of your hard work for my O-1 and EB-1 ( also for my wife's petitions for both visas ). I couldn't get them without your help. I have met a few immigration lawyers during past 16 years, but Richard is the best immigration lawyer I have ever experienced. Richard and his staff are very friendly and they are expert of immigration law. Once your case started, they work very hard for your case and do their best of the best. My EB-1 case had an issue during the USCIS process, but Richard solved that with his knowledge and experiences. The communication between me and them during the progress of my case was perfect, and the conscientious and efficient staff never tell you wrong information. That's why I didn't have to worry about the status of my case at all. If I need an immigration lawyer in the future, I definitely call Richard.

Our company had an immediate need to obtain an H1B Visa for a candidate. With the quota number increasing rapidly, we were in danger of losing this highly qualified candidate that was so difficult for us to find. The Tashjian Law Group provided and honest assessment of the likelihood of obtaining a visa for this candidate. Once we had made the decision to move forward with the application, Richard and his team clearly explained the process and quickly provided us with the necessary instruction and required filings. The application was approved. The members of the Tashjian Law Group provided timely advice and worked efficiently to provide a cost-effective solution to our issue.

Richard Tashjian has been our INS representative for a long time, probably over 20 years, and has never let us down! He waited occasionally for his paycheck when we were poor, and has since reaped the grateful benefits for it! Good man,good work.
