  • I can’t believe a lawyer of her caliber would know my case 24/7 365 days of the year! She is very extensive in her work acumen. She is passionate in what she does as this is clearly reflected in the excellent outcome of her work. You will feel you are not just one of the clients in her law firm, I never lost sleep because of the personal attention she gives you.

  • Thank you so much for all of your help. From talking to others, there seems to be no end of confusion and expense which can be incurred by choosing the wrong immigration lawyer – but you were always easy to contact and very straightforward. We will definitely be referring others to you in future.

  • US Immigration policy is one of the toughest in the world. I was glad to find Andrea to help me navigate through it with my difficult case. Andrea was quick to respond to my first call and whenever I needed to talk to her during the process, she responded within few hours – the most. She has friendly, but professional approach, which makes the painful process bearable. From my previous experience with other attorneys I learned to be careful. There is a lot of immigration legal help out there, that does not have the necessary knowledge to help. Andrea is the opposite. Thanks to her I saved a lot of money and time. My case was particularly difficult as I come from the Czech Republic and applied for VISA that is not easy to obtain. I rarely take time to give a positive feedback, but this attorney certainly deserves it!

  • I approached Andrea for an immigration application that was not going to be one of the “business as usual” cases, but she handled it in a very professional and efficient manner, giving me all the time I needed to ask questions and understand my options. I would have no hesitation recommending Andrea for immigration and other cases needing first-class legal work.

  • Andrea Szew was instrumental in helping me obtain my investor visa. The entire process went through with no hitches. She was very patient, explaining in clear layman’s terms all the nuances and legalities of my case. In addition, her detail-orientedness and organizational skills were critical in making sure that no stone was left unturned. What I liked best about working with Andrea was her personal touch. With Andrea as my lawyer, obtaining the visa didn’t seem like it was just MY endeavor, it became OURS.

  • As soon as I had my first consultation with Andrea, I knew she was the right Attorney for me. She is enthusiastic and extremely friendly and explained everything I needed to know. I had to put together over 20 years of my work, plus influential letters from people who recognized me in my trade. Andrea helped and guided me enormously through all this. The result, I finally got through my ‘O’ visa and it’s all thanks to Andrea!

  • I was extremely impressed with the Law Offices of Andrea Szew, more importantly Andrea Szew. Andrea prepared our successful E visa application. She was easy to work with and always available to answer all our questions. She worked seamlessly and patiently with our human resources department and our CFO to gather and prepare all documentation necessary to get our approval. Andrea and her staff are very experienced in dealing with companies big and small and bringing them to the US. Her background in tax and business helped make the process that much easier considering the complexities with our structure. I will definitely recommend Andrea and her office to others in the business world and look forward to working with her again.

  • As the Founder, Manager and Producer of The Australian Bee Gees Show in Las Vegas I could not recommend the Law Offices of Andrea Szew more (more directly Andrea Szew). Andrea has been able to not only get all of us our visas, but assist us in obtaining a visa that was more in line with our long term goals. She doesn’t just look for the fast fix, but looks at the whole picture to make sure that her clients are getting the proper visa to fit who they are as business owners and performers. Andrea is terrific with the entertainment world of Las Vegas and consistently has helped numerous performers with getting their visas painlessly and successfully. Also, because Andrea is versed in not only immigration, but business and taxation, she is able to help businesses applying for E visas with not only immigration guidance but with all facets of their business. Andrea gets it!

  • Andrea is awesome! She was the architect of an E visa that I needed for a business partner from Mongolia. She was extremely patient and giving of her time, walking us through every step of the process. In the end, we had complete documentation that allowed the E visa to be quickly granted. Very happy with her service.

  • It is my privilege to recommend the services of Andrea Szew. She did an amazing job with our investor visa and with other business matters. Her understanding of our situation has consistently demonstrated a keen intellect, sound reasoning, and objectivity along with an acute sense of organization. Both Mrs Szew and her office always respond in a timely fashion and exhibit the highest level of professionalism. More importantly she is a person of integrity. Unlike many lawyers, Andrea Szew has a passion to see people resolve their differences in peace with personal reconciliation rather than through costly law suits – and she is good at doing it! While she may not be working for her own financial advantage as a lawyer, she puts the wellbeing of the parties before herself in order to accomplish what is right and true.

  • Andrea has the talent to make things clear and simple and very Human , nothing is dramatic, any question you have she is always reachable which was the opposite of the other attorneys who i dealt with in the past. With her there is only solutions. On top of all of this she is so efficient and so fast, she put together my files in 10 days and I obtained my visa fifteen days later. It seems that my experience with her is not isolated, 100 % of the people that I know who has dealt with her , had the same words.

  • We can't praise Andrea highly enough. Our first experience of filing for residency was with an incompetent (and expensive)Attorney, who handled things so badly he almost permanently ruined our chances of getting our 'green card', never mind citizenship! Fortunately in the nick of time we discovered Andrea and night became day.

  • During these stressful immigration times, everyone needs a champion in their corner.  Andrea Szew was our champion and we unequivocally recommend her to be yours. With the one-two punch of brilliance and charm she guided us through multiple legal rounds, often in Spanish, ultimately winning my Brazilian partner his U.S. green card. The bonus round was she became our great friend.  Exuberant praise and abundant love to Andrea and her team!

  • Andrea and her team make the complex visa lodging process as simplistic and painless as possible. Their attention to detail and thorough knowledge of what is required makes all the difference. They provide innovative solutions. They have an enviable strike rate for success. Andrea remains a calm and steady force and provides a solid guiding hand during the entire process. It is said that love is in the details and I can assure you this is the case with Szew Law. Which is why I've sent at least ten new clients her way and will continue to do so.

  • It's always nice to have a good experience with a lawyer, and often quite rare. This exceeds everything. It has been pure joy working with Andrea and Anne-Marie over 2 visas now. Efficient, informative, thorough, speedy, and lovely to deal with. They go above and beyond for you, and they cross every i dot every t while being lovely and human to boot. I wouldn't go anywhere else ever.

  • Highly recommend Szew Law! Not only was I able to get clear and concise advice and answers, they were very prompt in their response times too. In my 6 years of living in the US across a number of visa’s, I have dealt with many immigration lawyers, Szew Law have been the best for me. I also thought their rates were reasonable.

She is so thorough in her work, incredible to deal with and extremely efficient. I have recommended her to several of my colleagues and they too have always had similar stellar results. She continues to stay in touch and follow the journeys of those she works with. I would recommend her and her company in a heart beat to anyone looking to get a visa - her track record is incredible and I would always go to her first above anyone else.
