At the referral of friends, Joy Haynes of Haynes-Novick Immigration provided invaluable help in steering us through a permanent residence application on the basis of a same-sex marriage. It was a pleasure to have worked with her over the course of nearly a year, from her initial consultation to outline our immigration options, through to our marriage and subsequent petition for alien relative and adjustment of status application, and finally to our marriage interview at U.S.C.I.S. and conditional permanent residence status. From the start, Joy was exhibited the sincere interest, expertise, competence, and unhurried thorughness that prepared us for what might follow and for a timeline with some built-in uncertainties. We were put at ease in a sometimes unnerving process knowing that we had Joy as our attorney, and never felt that we enjoyed anything less than her full (and immediate) attention at every step. We are happy to recommend Joy Haynes for her professionalism, knowledge and experience, and genuine care and interest she takes with her clients.read more

I found Haynes Novick online and decided to give it a try based on the good reviews. I was dealing with a divorce in the middle of applying to remove my conditions of my marriage based green card. I was quite stressed about the process, but the minute that I sat on the conference room with Rina Gandhi I was convinced everything would be ok. She was reassuring and professional throughout the whole process while also being close and friendly. I highly recommend Haynes Novick as a firm and Rina Gandhi as an immigration lawyer. I received my new unconditional green card last week and couldn't be happier!read more

I was referred to Haynes Novick Immigration through a client of mine. I was looking at starting the Green Card process through employment for both myself and my wife. After my first meeting with Jim and Joy, I knew that this law firm was going to everything to help me out. It took sometime to convince my work (no fault of Joy and her team) about sponsoring my application. Once I got all the approvals sorted out, Joy and her team went to action. Preparing documents, asking questions and making sure that everything was perfect. Whenever I had a question, no matter how ridiculous it was, I got an answer immediately. We predicted that our case would take a decent amount of time, however by diligent work from Joy we got our Green Card in record time (From start to finish, 1 year). I cannot thank Joy enough for how much she has helped both my wife and I, if you are looking for an immigration lawyer who is entirely on your side and will fight for you every step of the way - look no further.read more

Amy Novick is an exemplary immigration attorney. She assisted my family and I with moving from L1 / L2 visas to Permanent Resident Status (Green Card). Throughout the process, Amy was thorough, calm, extremely efficient, reassuring and personable. Her knowledge and experience are second to none, and her patience for my endless questions was very much appreciated. She is also super-responsive. Every email was answered almost immediately, and Amy did a great job of allaying any concerns and worries, without making any promises or creating any false expectations as to the certainty of the outcome. I could not have asked for any more, and would wholeheartedly recommend Amy to anyone requiring an immigration attorney. I have a number of colleagues who have also used Amy, and the praise for her is unanimous. She is simply the best there is.read more

I found Haynes Novick Immigration on Yelp. I will be eternally thankful that my first phone call was to Haynes Novick Immigration and that Joy Haynes picked up the phone. From our first conversation Joy was compassionate, clear and organized. This combination was exceedingly important to me. Immigration is personal matter and Joy treats the issue with the compassion and respect this matter needs. Joy guided my husband and i through the green card process over an 11 month period. While working through this process, i had questions related to a career move and Joy even provided me with guidance about questions i had related to that. The following characteristics are the reasons i would recommend Joy Haynes and Haynes Novick Immigration to anyone i know: 1. Joy knows her stuff. This is evident in the way she explains immigration guidance. I've worked with several immigration lawyers over 16 years and Joy is by-far the best. 2. She communicated with us constantly. We never had to remind Joy about a response. She always responded to us. 3. The firm is well equipped to gather necessary information from clients. When we signed-on with Joy, they had packets of information with clear guidance on what we needed to provide to them to move forward. This minimized any back and forth and made the information transfer process extremely smooth. 4. Lastly, but to us was the most important to us: In Joy we felt we were working with a lawyer that truly had our best interests at heart. We trust Joy immensely. Thank You Joy.read more

My partner and I had an amazing experience with Joy Haynes at Haynes Novice immigration to get my green card. We had been especially concerned when we filed our case because we are a same-sex couple and DOMA had just recently been overturned, so we were not sure what to expect. We are also both transgender, so finding a lawyer who was knowledgable in trans issues and immigration law was a top priority. We were impressed by Joy's professionalism, expertise, and ease with which she handled our case. We highly recommend her for other LGBT couples seeking a great lawyer for their green card applications!read more

I highly recommend Haynes Novick immigration, and especially Amy Novick. After 12 years of waiting, and terrible attorney advice prior to finding this firm, Amy was able to get our immigration application moving again, back on track and as promised, visa in hand, within one year. Amy was unbelievably responsive, available and patient, in explaining the process, and clarifying what was needed to keep things moving every step of the way. Our application had extra complexities that she navigated brilliantly and smoothly. As soon as we saw the visa, our first thought was that this would never have happened without her. Don't hesitate to contact this firm and work with them.read more
