    Due to the efforts of my attorney, Lisette Lavergne and her wonderful team, I was able to obtain my visa and eventually my green card. The immigration process in the United States is very complicated. Therefore, it is important to choose your attorney wisely. I have been a client since 2012, I retained the services of Lisette Lavergne, Esq. from Salmen Navarro & Lavergne, PC to begin the application process for my O visa.
