Knowledgeable, thorough, and courteous

December 2020

“I am involved in looking for a new priest for our church, and one of our candidates is from the UK and so presents immigration issues. I was referred to Scott Pollock from two independent sources. Scott offered me a concise overview of the relevant immigration process, outlining two possible avenues we could follow. He gave me an estimate of the costs of government fees and legal fees, as well as an estimated timeline. Scott was knowledgeable, thorough and courteous. Thanks to Scott, I can go back to my church with information about the immigration process that is critical to our decision. If we decide to go forward with this candidate, we will be sure to employ the Scott Pollock firm to assist us.”

Best Immigration Attorneys in Chicago!

December 2020

“To start off Mr. Pollock is by far the best Immigration Attorney in all of Chicago and Illinois that speaks Spanish and was perfect for our family. First, before taking our case we had a consultation, and indicated he would be able to take our case to represent our family. As our case took place back in 2012 it was a very complicated since we were in DEPORTATION PROCEEDINGS nevertheless Mr. Pollock managed to resolve our case. Because of his philosophy “Immigration lawyers occupy a peculiar space where, often, government practices are not policies, policies are not rules, rules are not law, and both rules and law seem to be dispensed with, with hardly a second thought.” He helped my father and myself get our green card along with my mothers work permit. I can now say thanks to Mr. Pollock I served in the US Marine Corps and was just recently Honorably Discharged. Along with that thanks to Mr. Pollock my father recently became a US Citizen along with myself through my military service. THANK YOU MR. POLLOCK FOR YOUR HARD WORK AND DEDICATION TO IMMIGRANT FAMILIES!!!!!!!!!”

Patient and kind; highly recommend this firm!

October 2020

“So, we messed up our Removal of Conditions application and received the dreaded RFE. When we put that application together it was very last minute and rushed because I procrastinated. Anything to do with USCIS stresses me out and I tend to bury my head in the sand. I decided to retain a lawyer as I didn’t want to mess up again for the RFE. I shopped around for a bit. When I consulted with another lawyer that was highly recommended to us by a friend, he offered an affordable flat rate fee but he had made me feel like there was a good chance we wouldn’t get approved because of circumstances that don’t fit the mold of a traditional marriage. e.g. we don’t file our taxes jointly, and I’m not on the deed of our condo. That consultation left me feeling nervous and had me catastrophizing future scenarios where I would get deported, my wife would only be able to visit me once a year resulting in the deterioration and ruin of our marriage, my dog would have to remain in the states because I would never risk him dying in cargo on a 20 hour plane ride, that I would never get to hug most of my friends and family again etc, etc.

After that consultation I had one set up with Scott who was highly recommended to me by a lawyer I work with at my work. This phone call was vastly different. We went over the same issues as the other lawyer but he made it seem like these were just small hurdles and as long as we could explain them, then USCIS would be satisfied. I ended the phone call at ease, hopeful and confident that our application would go through just fine. Because of this, I decided to go with this firm.

Christina Murdoch and her assistant Araceli were assigned to my file. I couldn’t be happier with the service and quality of work I received from them. They were both super professional, extremely responsive and patient with me. Once again, my anxiety got the best of me and I stuck my head in the sand. Thankfully, Araceli checked one me often and nudged me along the way in a pleasant manner. With my wife’s help, we were able to send over our evidence to Christina and Araceli a month before the USCIS deadline (totally unheard of from me who waits until the very last minute for everything!). The file they compiled for us was thorough and well put together. It was overnighted to USCIS and seven days later we found out our file was approved! And another week later my green card was delivered.

In short, I highly recommend this firm and I’m so thankful to Christina and Araceli for all of their work, patience and kindness.”

Friendly, honest and professional!

January 26, 2020

“We hired Scott Pollock close to one year ago. We have a complicated immigration case. Before hiring Scott, we hired different attorneys and consulted with many others (over the past 5 years). We eventually came across Scott D. Pollock and I’m glad we did! Scott is very knowledgeable and he always has a clear explanation for our situation, upcoming steps or any question that we have. Scott and Christina were always fast to respond to our emails and very knowledgeable and clear. They are both very friendly, honest and professional. A pleasure to work with. I highly recommend Scott’s firm for immigration needs.”

Extremadamente professional y organizada!

January 15, 2020

“Después de haber contratado 3 firmas de abogados de mucha reputacion en el pasado (y consultado a otros 4 adicionales) y de no haber conseguido ningun resultado (o incluso con la situacion empeorada) y con miles de dólares gastados, tuvimos suerte: encontramos la oficina de Scott D. Pollock. Nuestro caso era bastante complejo, pero Scott hizo un excelente trabajo no solo al comprender pequeños detalles y complejidades en la primera llamada, sino también al explicarnos todos los posibles escenarios y soluciones para cada uno de ellos. Scott y Christina siguieron de cerca nuestro caso, nos prepararon para posibles resultados, pero lo que mas los diferencia de otros abogados es que se mantienen muy actualizados con información legal de casos recientes que, en nuestro caso, fue muy valiosa y condujo a una solución. Es una oficina de abogados sincera, confiable, compasiva y extremadamente profesional y organizada. Si tienes un problema de inmigración y / o estás decepcionado con tu abogado actual, no dudes en comunicarte con la oficina de Scott D. Pollock: Él te ayudará cuando y donde otros no pueden.”

He will help you when others can't!

January 15, 2020

“It is my pleasure to write a recommendation on behalf of Scott D. Pollock. After having hired 3 very reputable attorney firms in the past (and having consulted 4 more) and having achieved neutral or close to negative results with thousands of dollars spent, we got lucky: we found Scott D. Pollock’s office. Our case was pretty complex (in Removal Proceedings) but Scott did an excellent job not only in understanding all the details and intricacies on our first call but also in explaining to us all the possible scenarios and solutions for each. Scott and Christina followed our case closely and timely, they prepared us for potential outcomes but what differentiates them from the others (in addition to their high professional level and honesty) is that they keep very current and updated with recent law cases and information that, in our case, was very valuable and led to a solution. Candid, dependable, compassionate and extremely professional and organized office. If you have an immigration problem and/or are disappointed with your current lawyer(s), don’t hesitate to contact Scott D. Pollock’s office: He will help you when and where others can’t.”

Highly detailed

September 23, 2019

“Our firm chose Scott D. Pollock & Associates, P.C. to assist one of our partners as we learned from other immigration lawyers the firm is among the best in their understanding of immigration law. We understood they generally have a record of success with even their most difficult and challenging cases. We have been working with Scott and his team to successfully obtain a Green Card for our partner and we felt we were in the best hands. Scott and his staff have been friendly and warm in their interactions with us. We found their advice to be highly detailed and their recommendations conservative to improve the odds of a successful outcome. They always had up to date insights into the current “hot buttons” within USCIS. Based on Scott’s high skills and experience in the field, we have felt very confident having him and his staff on our team, and we were confident we could face any challenges.”

Eminently qualified and thorough

January 26, 2016

“Mr. Pollock assisted my immigrant partner (now spouse) for 15-plus years through complex processes of obtaining his H-1 Visa, Employment Certification, and permanent residency, helping us obtain a successful outcome to our Marriage petition and Green Card 2015. We took his Adjustment Petition as far as the BIA, and Mr. Pollock’s arguments were well reasoned and clear based on the law. He and legal assistant Maria Hernandez are eminently qualified and thorough.”
