You may read the newspaper story about my client Yodit Derese here.
Yodit was granted asylum in the United States in 2012.
Helping immigrants from around the world to navigate the U.S.
immigration legal system has been very satisfying to me over the past
19 years. Here are a few of their comments.
Teresa is an experienced professional who is very approachable and
does a great job of making the immigration process easier to
understand. Her responsiveness to questions is superb and her
efficiency and effective manner are very re-assuring in the handling
of your case. Our application was handled in a few weeks instead of a
few months! It's not easy to find an immigration lawyer of such high
caliber and especially at such reasonable and fairly priced rates.
Once again we would like to thank you in regard to your professionalism and for your kindness to our family. We have faced countless obstacles and as a result of you taking our case, we would like to believe that the worst is behind us. Thanks to you, we three can look ahead with hope and with a degree of optimism. If anything were to come up in the future, we will consult with you due to your experience and knowledge of the immigration laws. Your kindness is never far from our reach. Thank you once more.
Teresa helped us navigate the immigration system with ease and be
prepared, even when surprises arose. We are so grateful she was our
lawyer, and believed in us with such conviction, to fight for us
every step of the way. Thank You, Teresa!
I've had the privilege of using Teresa's legal services for the past
11 years. Teresa is undoubtedly an expert in the immigration arena,
offering exceptional expertise accompanied with great communication
skills and the case success rate.
My legal case was the first one of its kind in the state of Oregon,
and Teresa spent a lot of time with me going over all case scenarios
in detail and making sure I understood every element of the case:
from risks and a necessity of having a backup plan to benefits of
trying a longer yet a more reliable route to reach a positive
Teresa's clients always have this bubble of comfort when they are in
her office while their lives (and dreams) are being mutilated in the
outside world. With pride I highly recommend Teresa Statler to anyone seeking
Teresa changed my life in so many ways and gave me the opportunity to
feel human again. The way she handled my case made me comfortable to
talk about all the bad experiences and to put them in perspective
where they can't harm me anymore. I believe that for this kind of job
it's important that somebody approaches it from both sides: as a
lawyer who will help you win your case and as a person who will
encourage you to overcome problems that we all came here with. I am a
happy man now, and after a long time I am free to worry only about
everyday situations, and all of that is thanks to the amazing Ms.
Statler. I was truly lucky to have her as my representative and I
will be eternally grateful to Ms. Statler for giving me my life back.
You have done a great job for me and my family over the years. What I remember
the most is, that you were always "on fire", willing to help.
My deportation case, you were ready to fight, I never had any real doubts
that we could lose the case, you gave me so much confidence, although it
didn’t look good at all and you told me so, but somehow I knew you could do it.
You believed in it, never let me down, you are a real pro.
Your help with fiancée visa, green cards for C. and the kids went very smoothly.
You will always be a part of our family. Without your help, we could not have done it.
Dear Teresa, thank you very much for all your help. You did a great
job for us. You listened to us and then you explained what our
situation was; you told us what we needed to do and all the time you
were right. You helped us to go on the right way. You
have a great attitude and the patience to explain everything.
You changed our lives. Thank you for everything you have done.
We are a married couple with a significant age
difference. When we decided to start the green card application process, we had
lots of questions and doubts. At the very first consultation session we realized that Teresa is very professional, efficient, and knowledgeable in her
line of expertise. She listened to us, cleared all our doubts and laid out
clearly the steps that needed to be taken. Teresa gave us proper guidance in collecting all the required
documents and also
in preparing for the interview. She always kept us informed each step along the
way until the final outcome. Her attention to detail helped us to face the
legal process, and our application was approved. As a result, our lives have
significantly changed for the better after the receipt of the green card. We honestly believe
that this would not have been possible without Teresa's expertise. Thank you, Teresa, for your help, time, and dedication.
