    I do not write this to embellish or exaggerate anything, neither am I trying to advance a career nor reputation. This is a true testimony of my relationship with Bretz & Coven. It took a young brilliant attorney (Oliver H. Qiu) just 6 months to achieve a profound victory. My life has been running circles in the past 9 years. And this is after passing through 8 attorneys. Bretz & Coven staff are polite and patient. Her fees are reasonable and relaxed. You are the best. I am profoundly grateful.

    I sought the counsel of Bretz & Coven after prior failed attempts with other law firms. I was under immigration proceedings for permanent residence for nearly 11 years with no success & my case was denied due to insufficient evidence and lack of supporting documents due to prior inexperienced counsel and a very complicated NACARA case. Amanda Grey was the attorney assigned to my tedious case at Bretz & Coven and after sending 2 appeals to USCIS on my behalf and countless hours of work invested.

    Bretz and Coven represented us on an immigration case which was quite complex. The work of the partners and our dedicated paralegal were professional, prompt and very responsive to our questions and concerns. We were fully prepared for all paper work and meetings. They were very knowledgeable about the legalities of immigration and spent extensive time researching our case and getting to know us. We have successfully completed our immigration process now with their full assistance.

    TERRIBLE! absolutely not recommended! POOR managerial skills on the office part. GREEDY THIEFS - will take your money and time and waste your day. DO NOT deal with them if you value your time. {para}We have scheduled our appointment a week in advance and the email said the appointment was scheduled at 11:30. I had to cancel a very important job to be there and arrived promptly at 11 AM. The office workers don't really rush to take care of you right away and we sat waiting there for 25 minutes. Final
