Excellent Employment and Business Immigration lawyer. We sought advice from Claudine Umuhire Gasana for our employment-based petition. She took our case after several mistakes had been made by another attorney, but she was able to correct them and avoid having us to start the process all over again. The petition was approved and we could not be more satisfied with her amazing work. She has great experience, she is very efficient, diligent and always replies quickly. She is definitely the top immigration lawyer in Houston. I absolutely recommend Mrs. Umuhire Gasana.

I recently had to change employer while in H1-B under some constraints. I went and met 4 lawyers, all of them reviewed top in Houston. I chose Claudine Gasana because I felt she really knew the INTRICACIES of the law and was hence confident in taking some calculated risks and I knew she would be able to present the best case in my favor.

It all worked out well and I look forward to working with Claudine for all my future immigration needs.
