    Harlan is an amazing immigration attorney. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, but he took me on as a mentor even though we are five states away. He would answer any questions I had and was fully knowledgeable about any immigration question I asked, and could point me to the relevant cases and laws that governed what I was asking about. I can't say enough good things about him.
