Client Comments

"Glinsmann & Glinsmann is an amazing law firm. Matthew Glinsmann was very profesional and highly knowledgeable. I highly recommended them."

"Matthew Glinsmann provided excellent service during the initiation and processing of my petition for my foreign spouse to join me in the U.S. His vast experience was of enormous benefit during the journey through the onerous application and approval process. During this "ordeal", Matthew was very generous with his time to answer any questions we had or react to any issues we encountered with the bureaucracy. During the periodic setbacks my wife and I encountered with immigration authorities, Matthew was consistently reassuring that he would be there to assist us--and he was. I would highly recommend him for any immigration case."

"I write reviews only when a particular service/product is really excellent and praiseworthy or if it is extremely poor. I would have to say from the outset itself that Mr. Matthew Glinsmann is one of the best immigration attorneys out there. He handled my case excellently well; the whole process felt so easy and straight forward. He guides you every step of the way, and he is always there for you when you need help. I highly recommend Mr. Glinsmann for help regarding any immigration matter; he is knowledgeable, helpful, and very professional. I truly enjoyed working with him."

"Glinsmann Immigration helped my mom with her immigration issues a while back and most recently helped my brother enter the US and become a permanent citizen. I have confidence in their dedication to their client's cases so much that I am considering them to represent me for my citizenship application. They are very realistic when it comes to US immigration timeframes and I loved how they always kept in touch with us through email and phone with any updates to our case. Their price is also very realistic and actually inexpensive compared to other firms."

"Mr. Glinsmann helped me with my immigration case, as well as removing my conditions on permanent residence. If you need an honest, hardworking attorney you can trust, I recommend Matthew Glinsmann."

"Mr. Matthew R. Glinsmann provided exceptional legal representation. My husband and I appreciated how he and his team worked in a very well organized and timely matter to guide us through the process of a family-based permanent residency. Mr. Glinsmann and his team were very helpful throughout and even put in extra effort and time to help us build a strong and successful case. His vast experience in the field made us feel very comfortable and well-prepared when we went for our interview. He handled our case with much professionalism and earned our full trust, especially through his calm and honest, yet friendly way. We will definitely contact Mr. Glinsmann again for help when it is time to remove conditions from my permanent residence and when preparing for the naturalization process. We highly recommend Mr. Glinsmann and his team to anyone who has immigration related issues."

"Matthew Glinsmann, at Glinsmann Immigration, did a wonderful job and was very knowledgeable in all immigration issues. I was also happy with the low fees. I got my green card in six months after the hard work of Mr. Glinsmann and his team. Thank you for your support, Mr. Glinsmann!"

"Mr. Glinsmann and his team at Glinsmann Immigration were the best team I could have worked with. My husband and I interviewed lawyers, and he was the only one who was up front about cost and expectations. Once we started working with him, he was professional, courteous, on time to appointments, and quick to respond to email and phone communications. We felt very comfortable and secure with him handling our case and have chosen to use him again. I highly recommend the Glinsmann team."

"I was very fortunate to find Mr. Glinsmann as my attorney to handle my naturalization case. He is honest, caring, knowledgeable, extremely organized, trustworthy, and professional. He always kept me updated on my case and went the extra mile to make things happen. Immigration is usually tiring and painful, but not with Mr. Glinsmann. He provided an outstanding service during the time he worked with me. I truly enjoyed working with him at Glinsmann Immigration because I had such a positive experience. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for an immigration attorney because he won't disappoint you. Thank you for making it happen Mr. Glinsmann! "

"I personally experienced Mr. Glinsmann's professional and expert representation in handling my naturalization application. He pays great attention to detail, has an efficient and prompt staff and makes sure that the application sails through to a successful conclusion. He understands the law very well but also has a mastery of the unwritten law. While I was waiting for my interview, I observed that many of the USCIS officers would come up and greet him; and he is on a first name basis with many of them. It was obvious that he is highly respected by them. Clearly, the officer has to follow the law and make a decision based on the merits of the case, but having Mr. Glinsmann in the room with me gave me a great deal of confidence in the interview. The Officer knows that if you are a Glinsmann Immigration client, you have a well-prepared application that is complete, with all the necessary evidence and supporting material. I recommend Mr. Glinsmann highly, and there is no doubt why he has developed a reputation as one of the best immigration attorneys in the DC/MD/VA area. "

"Before hiring Glinsmann & Glinsmann to handle the paperwork, we read several great reviews and even had first hand positive recommendations about their practice. My employer, my family, and myself are now convinced it was the best choice we could have made. Maria handled our H1B process while Mathew was in charge of our Green Card process. Both processes were executed masterfully and ethically with total transparency, no hidden fees, and most importantly, an honest communication channel at all times between the lawyers, my employer, and myself (including updates on the latest changes in immigration law). The Visas and GC were approved on or before our scheduled dates. We are very grateful to them and to God for putting them on our path."
