Juan Arellano

Today, I celebrate one of the happiest days in my life, on this day my wife was admitted back to the United States of America as a permanent resident, something that to others was impossible, Root Law Group made it very possible, and to this moment I’m very lucky to have hired them to represent me and my wife against all odds. Thank you, and as long as I live I will never forget the great effort that your office put into this case, in such short period of time, thanks again and feel very fortunate to have met you. I know this sounds kind of weird but it hit me the other day, it’s ironic how your office is located in what is known as the “MIRACLE MILE”, that’s why you are able to pull off miracles. Thanks Eli, Thanks Mr. James, you have brought joy and happiness back into my life. Regards, Juan Arellano

Fatima Valentine H.

Professional, knowledgeable, responsive, detailed. Always answered my questions in a timely manner. Very knowledgeable about the laws. Organized and went above and beyond what was needed. I called around and out of 5 different lawyers and I chose Root Law because not only did they come highly recommended (a friend won his case) but they also aren’t afraid of taking the long, rough road if it means winning the case.

A. Singh

I usually don’t leave comments but I had the best experience (4 years past) with the staff and Attorney from Root Law Group, so I’d like to say something about this law firm. My friend recommended them to me since he was so happy with his case handled by this law group. I took my case to Attorney James Root, who is very professional. He spends time with his clients to prepare the case. Long story short, I was 100% satisfied with the Attorney and his staff during my case with INS. Good work James. I’d recommend anyone who needs an attorney to try Root Law Group services and find out for yourself.

I want to thank Mr. Root and all of his courteous staff for the good work and support they gave me to get my change of immigration status: from working permit to permanent resident and, finally, to American citizen. They made every thing straight forward for me and made it even easier allowing me to pay his fees in monthly installments. Thus, I really want to say how much appreciate your help…THANK YOU MR. ROOT AND THANKS TO ALL OF YOUR STAFF.

Kamal Kasim N.

Thanks so much to Root Law Group for your serious efforts in our (I & my wife) naturalization process, starting from filling the N400 forms, submitting them to USCIS, and trying us for the interview at the RLG office, and then when we got some problems during the interview, but when RLG lady (lawyer) came with us to USCIS, she resolved all the problems with them cleverly. Now we got our USA citizenship, thank god. Many thanks to all team. Nabeel Al Azzawi

Rodney Keith

My wife is trying to become a US citizen. So we filled out the paperwork and mailed it in. We found out there were some problems. So we decided to fix them ourselves, you know save some money. Little did we know our case was a big can of worms. The more we did the worse it got. Now we need to speak to a lawyer. So we called one and explained our case. He said NO this is really bad. So we went to see another one they also said NO. We finally found Root Law Group. WOW what a change. The first time we talked to James Root in his office we knew this was our lawyer. James and his staff gave us a sigh of relief. They were very professional and cared about us. My wife is a very good person. But it was my mess that made this case so difficult. There is only one way to spell success and that is W.O.R.K. And everyone at Root Law Group knows that. They all worked very hard to turn our mess into a success. My wife is now waiting for the Oath date to become a US citizen.

Adam L

James Root and the team at Root Law are simply excellent! I’ve been working with James and Root Law over the last 5 years and they work hard for you. Root Law was a referral from a friend, and the one great thing I loved about James was the FREE consult. We spoke for the better part of 40 minutes, he went over the different details. At no time was I rushed out of the office, he really spent the time to go over everything. That to me really spoke volumes of how good Root Law is. I recommend them to people I know going through immigration, or having a challenging immigration situation. Definitely check them out. Adam L – USA Naturalized Citizen

Shiraz Januwala

Dear Mr. Root: I wanted to inform you, that today I took the oath of citizenship along with approximately 4000 others. I am now officially a US citizen. I hold in my hand my certificate (correct name change & all). This is now the end of my 20 yr. journey…but the beginning of a new phase. I want to thank you & your office for all your help in realizing my goal. This is one of the proudest, emotional & humbling moments in my life. I had a friend attend as a guest, though a natural born American, he told me at the end of the ceremony how powerful, unique & moving the experience was for him, how he was almost in tears as he recited alongside, the oath the judge administered to us applicants. He told me that he thought everyone in the USA should attend & take the oath so they can realize what it really means to be an American….I agreed. Thank you again sir.
