Ms. Lockhart worked on my National Interest Waiver case and then my Adjustment of Status case. She kept me up to date on my cases and was very responsive, often responding to me within 24 hours. She has a wealth of experience and it showed clearly. Overall, working with her was wonderful!

2020 for me is legendary because I met dear Ms. Dorothea Lockhart and the immigration team at DGW Kramer LLP. I never imagined I can get any long term stable visa in U.S. until I came to this law firm...What I want to say is if you are struggling with your legal long term identity in the USA, please entrust your future to lawyer Dorothea Lockhart. She is the best one to support you to realize your American dream.
