Immigration Attorney Reviews

Stephanie Vaughan - Google review

Merita recently helped my husband successfully obtain his green card for the United States. She has an extensive knowledge of immigration laws and is very thorough, being sure you are well-prepared for the process. In addition, she was the most reasonably priced attorney out of several we met with. Because of the importance of the preciseness of the immigration process, it was well-worth it to have the peace of mind that she gave us during the entire process. My husband and I highly recommend Merita.

Dr Rice assisted us with my mother’s green card process. We started the process ourselves in 2017 while my mother was visiting us in Texas. but timing was an issue and we needed legal advice to complete the documentation and comply with all the requirement on time. We contracted Dr Rice in September 2018. Since the beginning she was very clear in explaining our options and the best way to fill the forms and provide the appropriate documentation. Dr Rice guided us through every step of the process and was always one step ahead of our requirements. She went to my mother’s personal interview with the USCIS officer and was instrumental in helping us to have a very smooth interview. My mother is 80 years old and she was a little nervous. My mother got her green card in October 2019. We recommend Merita to help you with your immigration process. She knows what she is doing, is clear communicating your options and providing guidance through the entire process.

Merita is an excellent immigration lawyer. She helped me obtain my US citizenship after a long personal wait, and I feel very fortunate our paths crossed. The whole process was complex and laborious, but she made sure that every step was taken carefully. She helped me complete all the forms with expert guidance along the way, and she personally submitted all the material to the USCIS. Several times I felt overwhelmed by the amount of information that was required. Each time Merita was a patient ear and a force of encouragement. She kept me informed on the status of my application and subsequent interview at every step. I never felt alone in the process. Her communication skills are extraordinary, blending the right mix of personal care and professionalism. Her attention to detail is also one of her core strengths. She really is as thorough as they come, and in her line of work that is a major asset. Her knowledge about immigration law is deep and current. She stays on top of current affairs on immigration, and one always feels is in excellent, expert hands

Three years ago, Atty Rice successfully assisted in removing the conditions of residence for my wife and stepson. Processing the application for my wife was pretty easy and straightforward. For my stepson, however, there were some complications due to a failure on my part to file his paperworks before the expiration date indicated in his green card. We were very worried that his application could be denied. Thankfully, Atty Rice is very competent and very familiar with the immigration system. Due to her great expertise, my stepson's application to remove conditions on his green card was approved without a hitch. She guided us every step of the way and provided us with feedback everytime. I highly recommend her for all your immigration needs!

Merita Rice is a very professional and experienced attorney. She explained all the details of our immigration case thoroughly and went above and beyond to answer all of our questions and concerns. Other attorneys I spoke with, prior to contacting The Rice Law firm, made it seem like my fiancé visa case was impossible to get approved. And their high fees motivated me to look for help elsewhere. But when I contacted and met with Merita she was confident in our case and gave us a clear outline of what we needed to gather in order to have a successful outcome. I happily recommend Merita Rice to family, friends and anyone else whom needs a helping hand in dealing with an overwhelming immigration case.

Ms. Rice assisted my wife and I for a marriage based permanent resident in which we obtained a conditional 2 year green card. She then helped us again in 2018 for the removal of those conditions, in which we obtained a permanent resident card. Our case was approved ahead of the expected wait time because of her efficiency and clear expectations for the paperwork that we needed. Her instructions were easy to understand so we were never confused at any point in the process. She is always easy to reach through email and quick to respond with any questions we have which simplified the process even more. We would recommend Ms. Rice for any immigration needs as we will be working with her again to obtain naturalization! Thank you for your help.

Merita Rice helped us with an Adjustment of Status of Spouse of U.S. Citizen case from January 2018 to May 2019. We had looked into several attorneys before deciding to move forward with Merita because her attorney fees were reasonable and she was very knowledgeable about how to move forward with our case. Mertia led us through the entire process and our adjustment case was successful. She clearly explained the process from start to finish and was available to answer any questions we had about our case. We are so thankful for Merita’s expertise and would absolutely recommend Merita Rice to anyone looking for immigration-related legal services!

Me and my husband reached out Merita in 2017, summer time. She helped us a lot with my immigration visa. At the beginning we don't know anything about how all the processes go and Merita introduced the differences between Fiance Visa and Marriage Visa. That helped us make the best decision. She is always helpful from the beginning till I get the green card. She was very quick and patient to answer my all questions. It was a very great experience. I would definitely recommend her! Please reach out for her, you won't be disappointed!

Merita simplified the process of obtaining permanent resident for my spouse. Everything was clearly explained. The ease of email correspondence simplified the process. Everything happened as expected and our case was approved ahead of the expected time. I would recommend Merita and her law firm for your immigration or legal needs.

Great Immigration Lawyer

I hired this attorney to bring my wife to USA. She was recommended by my mom who had used her before. She has helped 3 other family members get green cards in the last 7 years. When it comes to immigration, she seems to have all the answers. I will hire her again when the time comes for my wife to file for citizenship.​

I was pretty scared going into this immigration process because I really just wanted a good smooth outcome. Ms. Rice is very knowledgeable about all the rules/laws and helped me feel very prepared for the interview. I recommended her to my brother and I would do the same for anybody else! Good luck :)

E.L. - avvo review

Attorney, Merita Rice, helped me get my green card as a derivative of my father who was sponsored by his mother (my grandmother). The US embassy delayed my case because of custody issues, but Merita was very patient and helped me and my father through the complicated process of getting the visa. I highly recommend Merita Rice for her expertise in bringing family members of American Citizens to USA.

Dene - avvo review
I hired Merita 4 years ago to help get my mother to retire into the USA. My dealings with lawyers in the past was not great. When I met Merita, she renewed my faith, I received excellent service, she walked through the process and handed every step. First class, very professional. I have already referred Merita to 4 of my customers in need of her advice. All I can say is thank you Merita and will continue signing you praises.

Mrs. Rice has helped me with my immigration paperwork and is wonderful. She always responds in a timely manner and makes you feel like you are her number 1 client.

Ninette Juma - google review

My experience with the Rice Law Firm has been nothing short of stellar. Ms. Rice has a genuine concern for her clients. If you are searching for an attorney that makes you feel like a person and not just a case, she is the one for you! She is very, very detail oriented and had a methodical approach to filing paperwork that was very simple to follow and complete. She is very well informed on current immigration laws and she is always readily available to answer questions. I honestly can go on and on about her. She is amazing and got my case the best results. I highly recommend her. If you are reading this, I assure you, your search for an attorney should stop The Rice Law Firm.

Merita handled my case a couple of months back. Very professional and knowledgeable about each and every stage. Highly recommendable if anyone needs a immigration attorney.

Jack – google review

Merita helped me in getting a fiancé visa for my fiancé and then eventually helped us get the conditional green card for her about 20 months ago. I hired her because of the reasonable attorney fee she charged. I had asked two other attorneys and they had both quoted an attorney fee which I thought was too high. After completing the intake form, I met with her and she explained the 3 steps involved in the process, and the fee for each step. I was so relieved that the total fee (including the 3rd step of getting the green card) was about $1100 - $1300 less then what other attorneys had quoted. I was even more relieved that she did not ask for the entire fee upfront, but broke the fee down in three installments which were due when each step started. I am hiring her again now so that we can get a 10 year green card for my wife, and the fee she quoted is even more reasonable because she gave us a “repeat client” discount…I will keep hiring her for all our immigration needs.

I was very impressed with my experience with attorney Merita Rice. She is very well organized, helpful, nice and worked quickly throughout the whole process. I sent out request to 4 different lawyers, attorney Merita Rice was the only one that had taken her time to explain the immigration process to me. So without doubt I highly recommend using attorney Merita Rice for your immigration cases.


Leonard - avvo review

I applied for my green card on 10 May 2016 and had Merita do all my paperwork. She was just perfect and got the best service from her. It took a total of 4 months from start till I got my green card. I will definitely use her to apply for my citizenship.

Outstanding Lawyer

We found this great lawyer to file for my case bringing me to US after I got married. I also hired her gaining my citizenship and she has been nothing but communicative and professional. Now I am using her again to file for my parents. Absolutely satisfied with her. I would highly recommend her.

Charles McDaniel - google review

Thank you so much for everything! You were the best choice we could have possibly made for assistance with our family matter. Our family member has received his permanent resident card and we were pleasantly surprised to see how quick his case was processed.. You were so pleasant to work with and you made the processes as easy as it could be for us. You were very informative and guided us throughout the entire process and the communication was impeccable. Thank you so much from all of our hearts.
