“Immigration law is complex and each set of facts…..Include “
-Jason E. Ankeny

Immigration Law is complex and each set of facts are unique to the individual. It is important to understand that your outcome may not be similar to someone else’s results you see below. These testimonials are displayed to illustrate examples of the attorney’s past experience. As a former Immigration Officer and Attorney, I believe experience is paramount in this field and timing is often critical.

My family and have been using Jason Ankeny’s legal services and expertise for several years now, Jason and his staff are nothing short of great. I had a tough TN visa situation where it was denied twice using other lawyers. I decided to work with Jason on my family’s recommendation, and my visa was approved on my third attempt. This is extremely rare, and it’s all because of the hard work and expertise Jason brought to the table. I continue to utilize his services, and highly recommend Jason Ankeny to all my friends and family for their legal needs.

I would consider Jason an expert in immigration services, and completely trust his judgement. Jason’s professionalism and knowledge surpasses many other lawyers I have worked with, and as mentioned, will continue to use his services in the future. His organization, communication, and level of professionalism is commendable, and he is very pleasant to work with. His work is thorough, and he has continually shown his dedication to his clients by always keeping a clear line of communication, being honest, and always responding in a timely fashion. I will continue to use Mr. Ankeny and his team for my future immigration needs, and can always trust their judgement.

Upon completing my university studies in the United States, I spoke with several immigration attorneys about starting up a business in the Seattle area. After consulting with several attorneys, I found only one willing to take my case, which was later denied. After one visa denial and two refusals by CBP at the airport, I was literally stranded abroad. I was overwhelmed and about ready to give up.

I was then referred to Jason who I hired to straighten out a complicated mess. Jason came across as very confident and thorough. He stepped in and communicated to me in a very clear and precise manner regarding the law and how it applied to me. He clarified complicated issues with the consulate and sorted the whole thing out. My E-2 visa was issued!

Jason did not confine himself to regular office hours, and did not stop working for me until my visa was approved and I was back in the United States. I am beyond pleased with my experience at Ankeny law. Everyone I worked with and talked to were friendly, intelligent, diligent, as well as caring and sensitive to my specific case. I highly recommend Jason.

I really don’t know how to put into words what Jason Ankeny has done for my family. It was nothing short of life saving. My wife and I got married in 2008. I am an American citizen and my wife is from Mexico. When we first married, we decided to live in Mexico for a year or so. I commuted back and forth every week to my job in Los Angeles. During this time my wife became pregnant and we contacted a local attorney to help process my wife’s paperwork to legally enter the United States. At the time Jason was working as an immigration paralegal for the attorney.

Unfortunately, we found out our baby would be born with such serious complications he would likely not live long. We then decided to return immediately to the United States where we felt he would have a better chance. Jason helped us every step of the way. When I called the office, we were informed of our options. During a conference call, Jason said he will do everything possible to make sure our baby was born in a hospital in the United States that could give our baby a better chance. The hospital was Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. We prayed for a miracle and it came to us through Jason. It might seem dramatic but because of his help my son had a fighting chance.

After Jonathan was born, he went through more than 30 surgeries to keep him alive. He was hospitalized the first 10 months of his life and we lived with unbelievable stress. But none of our stress was due to immigration issues. Jason called constantly to follow up on my son’s condition. We received many miracles and much love, which has kept our son alive and with us today. It all started with Jason on the other end of the line. Thank you Jason.

If you are interested in my son’s story, read about it here. All of this would not have been possible first without his help. He was not only good at his work, but a person who really cared. He did not just see my wife and I as mere clients, but as personal friends and a family in need of his help.

Jason was highly recommended as someone who knows U.S. Immigration Law. After a consult, I hired Jason for the purposes of creating my U.S. subsidiary and getting a E-2 Investor Visas for myself and 6 of my key workers. Due to critical timing issues, Jason remained available after hours and weekends. All seven visas were issued timely and without issue.

We hired Jason to prepare my E-2 Visa application to be processed in Vancouver, BC. While I received two separate complements from two different Consular Officers regarding the quality of my attorney’s E Visa presentation, other E visa applicants were being denied for one reason or another. It was assuring that my attorney knew exactly what to do to obtain our visas.

We are a mid-size farm-labor contractor located in South Georgia. We hired Jason to bring 130 farm workers from Mexico under the H-2A program for seasonal work. Although we were a little hesitant due to the distance of his office, we hired Jason to take on the project. We found Jason was very knowledgeable of the regulations and procedures. All of our applications were filed timely. Of the 130 applicants, 127 were issued H-2A visas and all made it to the fields on time! We have since used Jason for other immigration needs.

We are very appreciative to have our I 601 hardship waiver approved. We initially filed the application without an attorney and received a notice from the service asking for additional information. We were referred to Jason who we later hired to represent our case. He knew exactly what to do, which documents to request, and how to respond. We made it! Thank you Jason!
