Client Comments

"Ms. Taylor is a gem to work with. She explains items in a professional and understandable manner. She is very quick to respond to any question or concern I may have."

-Heidi Belfry
Harry Pepper & Associates

"Frances Taylor is always accessible for minor questions, as well as major issues. Her ability to simplify the most complex statements and laws is appreciated by many of us who do not have the legal expertise in employment and immigration. She patiently listens when we repeatedly ask questions on issues that are difficult to grasp. Most important is her passionate commitment working in the best interests of both the client (hospital) and the immigrant."

"Frances O'Connell Taylor is very knowledgeable and responsive. She is always willing to take the time to explain a very complex and counterintuitive process (immigration) to our employees."

"Ms. Taylor has assisted our business with employment-related immigration matters for the better part of a decade. We have found her to be a sharp and knowledgeable professional, efficient, responsive, and accessible. Her breadth of experience in this area (as well as her unfailingly successful handling of cases on our behalf) inspires our unflagging confidence in her considerable ability."

I certainly and highly recommend Ms. Taylor as an attorney of choice in immigration law."
