My brother suggested Ackah Business Immigration Law. He just raved about Evelyn Ackah and told me that she would definitely take care of me. At first I thought the fees were a little steep because I have heard of other people paying a fraction of the fee quote I received. However, I do know that you get what you pay for. Ultimately, I am so happy that Ackah Business Immigration Law took me on as a client and supported me through the LMIA process. Evelyn Ackah’s team was absolutely amazing to work with! They were very responsive. They responded to all of my emails quickly – even on weekends! . Evelyn called me right away to talk through the issues with me. Words really just can’t describe the level of service I received from this firm. I have worked with many different lawyers and professionals before and I can definitely say that Evelyn Ackah and her team provide exceptional service. They are worth every penny! Thank you again Ackah Business Immigration Law for all of your hard work!
