I was recently denied approval to travel for some important upcoming meetings in the United States on the Visa Waiver program and thus needed a skilled attorney that fully understood Immigration Law to assist me with overcoming the denial and obtaining a business visa to the United States. Anna Putintseva and her team assisted me with preparing a strong visa application and were able to expedite the interview by working around the clock, which resulted in the successful approval of a 10-year visa for travel to the US again. I am thankful to Anna for all her help; she and her team did a magnificent job, and, as a result, I was able to attend the important meetings in the United States. I strongly recommend Anna Putintseva to anyone who is looking for an immigration attorney. – PAE, Professor – Ontario, Canada
