We had a wonderful experience throughout our green card applications, and naturalization process. Glinsmann Immigration provides excellent communication, preparation for interviews, reminders and are very thorough. They have an easy to use portal for document sharing. During covid they pivoted to virtual meetings and made things as easy and smooth as possible. I highly recommend their services.

Glinsmann Immigration's knowledge, expertise, responsiveness, and great customer service are unparalleled. Their guidance and support through every step of the immigration process has made me worry- and stress-free. The fact that they also send periodic updates on the status of the application is quite helpful and proactive. I highly recommend Glinsmann Immigration to anyone in the DC area looking for an immigration lawyer.

I had an opportunity to work with Attorney Maria F. Glinsmann and her team (Ana and Juan) from Glinsmann Immigration on my H1B transfer petition. From the initial kickoff meeting until receiving the approval notice, the process was smooth and flawless. The petition was thoroughly prepared with all supporting documents attached to it. Communication was extremely professional, and all the queries raised by me during the process were answered in a detailed manner with supporting reference from the USCIS website. Regular and timely updates were provided. Mostly importantly, the handling of personal information was through a secure portal, which was great and convenient. I strongly recommend Maria and her Glinsmann Immigration team for any immigration needs.

The Glinsmann team was knowledgeable, thorough, professional, and communicated with our team on a timely basis. They anticipated potential issues and worked with us to eliminate them before moving forward. The process could not have been smoother. We worked with two other firms prior to being introduced to the Glinsmann firm. The other firms made us feel as if we were just another company on an assembly line. Our experience with Glinsmann was very hands on and personal.

Mathew Glinsmann demonstrates professionalism, transparency and understanding. He took time to explain all the steps of the process. I got my green card on the promised time .
Hind El Mnabhi
Immigration Law
We turned to Glinsmann Immigration for my H1B visa renewal and PERM process after another attorney mishandled and seriously damaged both cases. I was very close to having to exit the country and restart the whole process when the company found and consulted with Matthew Glinsmann. Mr. Glinsmann reviewed the cases and provided a clear and objective analysis of the situation. Mr. Glinsmann presented a solution, and the team took over both cases. In less than three years, Glinsmann Immigration brought both cases to a successful conclusion, and I am now a permanent resident. Based on my experience, I can wholeheartedly recommend Glinsmann Immigration. They clearly explained the road ahead and were very clear and well-timed in their communications at all steps of the process. I was very impressed with their expertise and their ability to plan ahead (an extremely rare quality in attorneys, it seems). The company must also be commended for their communication skills: I always understood where my process was and what lay ahead. I am very grateful to Glinsmann Immigration for their work. I was quite desperate when the company contacted them, but they came through for us and provided the successful results we were hoping for.
Immigration Law
I have been working with Glinsmann Immigration for over six years now. This means numerous conversations and numerous questions from me. There has never been a time where I felt that I was bothering or bombarding them, even if they had mentioned it before and I needed clarity/confirmation that I understand. I have grown used to the amazing and outstanding service I know I will get in every encounter, and I trust them for our company's immigration needs. These attorneys are excellent, and I recommend them every chance I get. I am confident in their knowledge and commitment to top-notch service. They take care of "their people" what other firms may call clients. Glinsmann Immigration is the best!
