A.M. – Cincinnati, Ohio

I first came to the states in 2005 on J-1 visa. After I finished my training, I had the opportunity to hold a faculty position at a university hospital . The only hurdle against attaining this position was the fact that I can not hold a faculty position on a J-1 visa. To make it even harder, my J1 visa was subject to Section 212, meaning that I have to reside in my home country for 2 years before I can come back to work in the US. This was when I sought help from Ms. Feist. The general consensus was that the only way for me to obtain my job is to get an O-1 visa. Ms. Feist helped me put the paperwork together and writing the proposal for my case. I could not believe that I had the approval for the O-1 status and within 72 hours of case submission. This had a major impact in my career and the ability to practice medicine in the US.

After over a year of successful practice, I found a better job opportunity but the challenge again was to move my O-1 visa to the new location. I again turned to Ms. Feist and she handled my case for visa transfer in the same professional and careful manner. She again achieved success with my O-1 transfer.

In addition to her knowledge, professional attitude and extensive experience, Ms. Feist is very friendly person to deal with. Always prompt in getting back to her clients and always available to answer their questions and concerns. I am now in the process of gaining the approval for a hardship waiver and she is preparing my case for submission. I know how hard it is to obtain this kind of waiver, but I have a lot of trust in Ms. Feist that she will be able to help with it.
