      "I will be forever grateful to Attorney John Miotke"

      Attorney John Miotke is the best immigration attorney there is. After 20 years I finally became a U.S Citizen and I would have never made this dream come true without the help of Attorney John Miotke. John has been by my side since day one I applied for residency. He is intelligent, honest, hard working and always has his clients’ interest at heart. He is aggressive in court but at the same time caring and sensitive to his client’s needs. He is honest about the expectations of the case but at the same time will not give up without a great fight. He will not only treat you as your client but will always take the time to get to know you and treat you as his own family. Attorney John Miotke is truly a remarkable man and I cannot thank him enough for all the help and guidance he has given me throughout these years. I will always be indebted to Attorney John Miotke. I also want to thank his office staff and specifically his paralegal Aisha for helping with my case. Words cannot express my gratitude towards Attorney John Miotke and his staff. If you decide to choose John as your Attorney you will not be disappointed. John and his legal team, thank you for everything that you do!

      "Having attorney Miotke in your corner to fight for your rights is priceless!"

      As a Green Card holder for many years I kept putting off my Naturalization application, concerned with being denied due process. That changed once I contacted attorney Miotke's legal team. Within an hour I received a personal call from attorney John Miotke. He answered all my immediate questions, including how he could possibly represent me since I live in New Hampshire and he is in Florida. He assured me that he has clients all over the United States and he travels to represent them during their USCIS interview. My citizenship was secured within 5 months of Miotke's team completing my application. They made sure to review all documents which the immigration officer could request. Had I done the process on my own, I would not have had this peace of mind during each step of the process. Every time I had a question, I received a prompt response from attorney Miotke and his caring paralegal, Aisha. Having attorney Miotke in your corner to fight for your rights is priceless! Thank you attorney Miotke and team!

      "Thank you John, so much."

      My wife and I would like to take the time to thank John Miotke and his staff for the help getting my wife's green card. We had major problems, because we tried doing it on our own, but John was able to untangle the mess we made, and we were successful in get my wife's green card. He was very courteous and also straight to the point, and he kept us abreast of everything that was going on, when it came time for the interview, he was there keeping us calm, and helping us to get prepared for it. His staff is wonderful as well, they were able to get back to me quickly when we had questions, and they were very helpful as well. John Miotke was recommended by 2 couples that have used his services, they said he was the best, and my wife and I agree, we highly recommend John Miotke. Thank you John from the bottom of our hearts. Gregory and Bouavanh Smith

      "I will be eternally grateful to Attorney Miotke."

      “A business owner with an American-born wife and teenage son, after 19 years I faced the very real possibility of permanent separation from my loving family and all the fruits of my labor. Despite a situation fraught with uniquely stressful challenges, Attorney John C. Miotke was up to the task. Not only did he skillfully pave the way to a positive outcome for me; the entire life-changing process was completed in record time. Amazingly, my green card arrived within a few weeks of application. Throughout the process, I was treated with dignity and respect by a team of legal professionals who took the time to offer heartfelt guidance and encouragement along the way. I will be eternally grateful to Attorney Miotke and everyone at Dehra Miotke Immigration Attorneys for a job well done.” - G.P.

      "Thankful and Kudos to Mr. Amit Dehra and his team to walking with us on our journey."

      We've been with Mr. Amit Dehra and his team since 2011. Our journey of Immigration pathway was with full of obstacles and complete rock hit bottom from student visa reinstatement to I-485 adjustment. I still remember him taking our first and tough case with last moment consulting call where other lawyers took their hands off. Of course, Hats off to him, the way he and his team fought back with proper legal arguments and assistance which put our status back in Success. After 2012, we went to other local lawyers and tried their services, However, we never satisfied with others and always end up being calling him where he needs to clean up mess up done from others.Not sure to be worded right or how to account for trust factor, but, it was always been my personal faith that I've asked my husband to call him at last moment in sense urgency and obviously, he and his team provide very straight answers to our queries/doubts with high quality and such professional expertise and what you're being promised for. We have struggled with other lawyers with lot of money and time, but, Our expectation were always been profound and prompted with Mr.Amit Dehra. We Heartily thankful to him and his team's wonderful cooperation and walking with us. With out recent case by this year, Mr.Amit Dehra and his one of the best Paralegal Assistant Ms. Keidy Shah were at the niche of expertise, always welcoming, helpful, prompted, documenting neatly and quickly within timeline all with proper conscience and proactive towards each portions of case. Noted to mention that just in any case if you're stuck with your case and you need to talk or vent out your frustration, he always answers your call and guides you straightly and same thing goes for his paralegal team to reaching out to you in timely manner. We've never experienced negative communication like waiting on call or hold on call with him which I like the most and won me over that he's treating his clients at most needed time and replies to queries. We highly recommend Mr.Amit Dehra and His team. In future, We'll always have first spot open for him whenever any legal assistance needed. Our family would always been thankful to Mr.Dehra and his awesome team specially Ms. Keidy Shah. Kudos in tons...

      "Dehra Miotke Immigration Attorneys were my "saving grace.""

      I'm highly recommending this law office. After having a lot of trouble with another law office, Dehra Miotke Immigration Attorneys were my "saving grace." They agreed to meet with my husband and I at a moment's notice. They were very thorough and made us feel very comfortable throughout the entire process. Communication was excellent and the cost of their services was very reasonable. John and Aisha were great! They are conveniently located across from the immigration building and since they have a lot of experience, there were no surprises. I will be a repeat client.

      "Honestly, if you need a strong, professional, and dedicate immigration law firm, look no further than Dehra Miotke."

      The law firm of Dehra Miotkey is a blessing from the skies for anyone needing immigration legal advice in the United States of America. I was referred to attorney John Miotkey in mid 2008 or 2009, it's been such a long time ago. Nonetheless, from the very beginning, he and his team made me feel certain that everything would be ok. The friend who referred me told me once, " John does not take on a case that he can't win, nor has he lost a case in the many years he has been practicing his craft." Hearing that eased my mind and heart instantly. In late 2009, and thanks to the professionalism and the competent skills of John and his legal team, I was granted full permanent residency in the United States. Four years ago, when I was applying for citizenship, I went back to his law firm for assistance. I was then introduced to his new legal assistant Ms. Aisha Shah. Ms. Shah is truly a delight to work with; she's highly professional, intuitive, and a master at making sure that all needed documents are in place for John to go fight on one's behalf. Equally important, she and John were there for me in 2018 when I was applying to change the legal status of my now deceased mother, which was not a simple case to deal with, from TPS to green card holder. I know I have written a saga instead of a review, but I am so happy that attorney John Miotkey and his legal assistant Aisha Shah are there to guide those seeking to start a new life in the United States. Honestly, if you need a strong, professional, and dedicate immigration law firm, look no further than Dehra Miotkey for you will be in very good hands and you will see results.

      "An incredible immigration attorney!"

      He has been an incredible immigration attorney from the beginning. I have been in California for over 8 years and he has represented me since the beginning in my Immigration matters, and he has been supportive, honest, and very efficient and has always kept me informed. His fees, has always been very reasonable and he really cares for his clients.

      "He is well considerate of his clients time and work schedule."

      Amit Dehra has worked on my children’s impossible immigration case and made them possible. He helped us get status when my children were without one and wanted to go to school. His whole team from the secretary to Amit himself, did a constant follow up on my case. He is very dedicated with this work, and is able to give the time and attention a client needs for these immigration matters. He was easily reachable via phone and email. There have been times where I got instant replies from him. Overall he is very straight forward regarding legal advice. I have been his client for 4 years and till this day he treats me with utmost respect and honor. I could not ask for a better lawyer than him. He makes time for his clients whether that is weekend morning or it is late evenings. He is well considerate of his clients time and work schedule.

      "Thanks to Amit Dehra of Dehra Miotke and their legal staff."

      I am a war veteran. I initially filed a pro-se fiancé visa for my then fiancé, who resided in China. My initial fiancé visa was approved by the Service Center but when my fiancé appeared for a visa interview, they denied her fiancé visa application. I was extremely disappointed. Thereafter, after thoroughly researching Attorneys and their credibility, I retained Attorney Amit Dehra. In the interim, I also married my then fiancé. Attorney Amit Dehra filed an Immigration Petition with the Service Center, which was approved without any Request for Evidence. Our submission included evidence such as our e-mails history, phone records, my visits to China, photographs and affidavits pertaining to our genuine relationship. Thereafter, Dehra Miotke enrolled me for a voluntary pilot program, under which we skipped the National Visa Center process and the case was directly transferred to U.S. Consulate in China. My wife was schedule for an Immigration Visa interview. We were very nervous because the same consulate had earlier denied her case. Attorney Dehra gave us all the appropriate paperwork to carry. She was interviewed and her Immigrant Visa was approved without much questioning. Thanks to Amit Dehra of Dehra Miotke and their legal staff.

      "[They] have what it takes to get the case approved."

      I have several years of experience in dealing with Attorneys John C. Miotke and Amit Dehra. My H-1B and extensions have been approved without much hassle. In addition, my Labor Certification was filed and certified. My Form I-140 was approved within few days of filing. Attorneys John C. Miotke and Amit Dehra have what it takes to get the case approved.

      "My H-1B was successfully filed and by Attorney Amit Dehra."

      My H-1B was successfully filed and by Attorney Amit Dehra. Thereafter, he successfully obtained my employer a Labor Certification and I-140 approval under employment based second preference category. I want to mention here that I was interested in filing I-140 using premium processing (“pp”) service by investing additional $1000.00 in pp fee. Attorney Dehra sensed that based on other I-140 approval he is being getting, I would get an approval anyway with-in couple of months. That’s exactly what happened and I not only received approval of I-140 but also I-485, which was filed concurrently. From the beginning to the end the whole green card process was less than two years. It was great to have Amit on my side.

      "We thank them for their hard work with prompt response time."

      "Attorney Amit Dehra is one of the best immigration attorneys in the U.S."

      I rate Attorney Amit Dehra as one of the best immigration attorneys in the U.S. based on my personal experience: My employer 0. received a very detailed 5 (five) page Request for Evidence (“RFE”) in my H-1B case. Both my employer and I were concerned and had little hope in getting an H-1 approval. However, Attorney Dehra worked very hard on the RFE given the short timeline, and we submitted the response with extensive documents, including an expert opinion letter regarding the specialty occupation and associated job duties. My case was approved soon thereafter. Attorney Dehra continues to represent me. As a matter of fact, my previous counsel, who was based in close proximity, was not prompt and efficient in responding to my phone calls and e-mails. Attorney Dehra truly understands and empathizes with the situation of an immigrant and works diligently with compassion. Again, in my opinion, Attorney Amit Dehra is one of the best immigration attorneys in the U.S.

      "I was given adequate time by Attorney Dehra to explain the process and what documents would be required at each stage of the case."

      I retained Amit Dehra of Dehra Miotke in filing my Form I-751 based on waiver, which was filed based on the fact that my marriage was genuine but it did not work out. During my initial consultation and throughout the paperwork, I was given adequate time by Attorney Dehra to explain the process and what documents would be required at each stage of the case. We prepared detailed affidavits from my family members regarding bona-fides of our marriage. My case was also schedule for an in-person interview by USCIS Orlando. I was very nervous. However, with my testimony and submitted documents, the Service was satisfied and believed in my marriage. Now, I have a permanent green card. Thanks to Dehra Miotke.

      "He is the best."

      I cannot thank Amit Dehra enough! I was told by many prominent Immigration Attorneys that I an ineligible to obtain a U.S. green card in the U.S. because I entered the country illegally. However, what all immigration attorneys, except Attorney Amit Dehra, failed to ask me was if, “I was the Beneficiary of any petition filed on or before April 30, 2001.” This was the specific question asked my Attorney Amit Dehra and I said “yes”. After carefully reviewing the documents, I was informed that I am eligible to adjust in the U.S., despite the fact that I entered illegally in the U.S. I was told that I am a beneficiary under section 245(i) of the Immigration and Nationality Act. We filed paperwork and I was interviewed by the Service. The interview went well andAttorney Amit Dehra informed the Service how I qualified under 245(i) of the Act and my green card case was approved. Today, I am a green card holder. I can’t imagine why different lawyers gave me a “no” when there was clearly a way out. Many thanks to Amit. He is the best.

      "Amit is the best Immigration Attorney I have met!"

      I was shocked to hear from the Service that they intended to rescind my green card of 3 years. This is the time I consulted with Attorney Amit Dehra. I hired him and we responded to Notice of Intent to Rescind. Other Attorneys wanted me to not to respond but defend myself in the Immigration Court. However Attorney Amit Dehra’s suggestion was to submit credible documentation to the USCIS and he was confident that we will convince the USCIS office. That’s exactly what happened. USCIS was satisfied with our response.Today, I am a proud citizen of the United States. You guessed it right – Attorney Amit Dehra also represented me during my Naturalization process. Amit is the best Immigration Attorney I have met!

      "My family and I are thankful to Attorney Amit Dehra and his legal team."

      My association with Attorney Amit Dehra dates back to the year 2007. I had consulted him regarding my pending Form I-140 filed by CVS. At the same time I was contemplating a move to a different employer. However, Attorney Amit Dehra advised me to wait until getting an approval of Form I-140. Anyway, when I moved to a new employer, even though a new Labor Certification was filed by my new employer, with Attorney Amit Dehra’s guidance, we were able to retain an old priority date from my previous approved Form I-140. That was a saving of good three-four years. No one else informed me about “retention of priority” dates. My family and I are thankful to Attorney Amit Dehra and his legal team. Maximum points to him.

      "Kudos to Dehra Miotke."

      Attorney John C. Miotke and Attorney Amit Dehra form an aggressive, reputable and reliable legal team.They have helped me with something that most Immigration Attorneys refused to. I had a final order of removal/deportation against me and my children. My previous attorney did not do justice to my case. During my interaction with Dehra Miotke, I have observed that they do not present false expectations with clients. I was informed clearly about the odds of getting a grant of Motion to Reopen. They filed my case with a lot of paperwork, affidavits etc., and as predicted our case was vehemently opposed by the Immigration and Custom Enforcement (“ICE”). However, my attorneys did it for me. Because of Attorneys Amit Dehra and John C. Miotke, my removal order was rescinded and because of that my family and I are presently in the U.S. Kudos to Dehra Miotke.

      "It was because of his quality representation that we were able to get our green cards so quickly."

      In Brazil, I was hired by a U.S. employer, who did not have much immigration experience. From Brazil, I retained Attorney Amit Dehra to work on my H-1B. In principal, I had a job offer from the U.S. but I was looking for the right attorney to represent me. I spoke to Attorney Amit Dehra and felt satisfied after speaking to him. I retained him and obtained my H-1B and thereafter H-1B visa stamp from the U.S. Consulate in Brazil. Thereafter, he also worked on my green card. Based on the discussion with employer, Attorney Dehra gave us a green signal on an Employment Based second preference case. My Labor Certification was certified quickly and thereafter Attorney Dehra concurrently filed Forms I-140 and I-485 for my family and I. Very soon, my I-140 was approved and I also received my green card. I am in Nevada and I still have not seen Attorney Amit Dehra in person (other than his picture and profile on his web site), but he is an important part of our lives. It was because of his quality representation that we were able to get our green cards so quickly. Full marks to his legal team and him.

      "My H-1B was done in time and I was relieved."

      I was initially recommended a different attorney who was asking all kinds of documentation which I believe were unusual in H-1B cases. I took second opinion and Attorney Amit Dehra did my H-1B in a seamless fashion and without the documentation requested by previous attorney. Presently, I am a corporate Attorney with a big law Firm in San Diego. Attorney Amit Dehra filed my H-1B and his work was as clean as a whistle. My H-1B was done in time and I was relieved.

      "I am glad that I found Attorney Amit Dehra and Attorney John C. Miotke."

      My case is a classic case where, unknown to me, there was a final order of deportation against me for the last 10 years. I was unaware of this, despite the fact that I had signed a Notice to Appear (“NTA”) accepting the service of NTA. However, in reality I had not been delivered this Notice to Appear, even though I had accepted the service. In the interim, I had got married to a United States Citizen and a United States citizen son was born to us from this marriage. I approached many Immigration Attorneys who did not show any positive signs in my case. Finally, I approached Attorney Amit Dehra who explained me that a Motion to Reopen was required in my case. Also, under the circumstances, it will be an uphill task to convince the Immigration Judge that I had never received the Notice to Appear and did not know about the Court hearing date, despite me having signed the NTA. Attorney Amit Dehra explained me that a “polygraph” test is recommended to establish my credibility. I voluntarily took the polygraph test which reiterated our position that I did not receive the NTA and any Immigration hearing date. We filed the Motions and got the stunning result – my Motion to Reopen was granted by the Immigration Judge and now I can proceed with my adjustment. It was a huge relief. I have to say that I live in Melbourne but I could not find any suitable Attorney in State of Florida who showed me the right path. I am glad that I found Attorney Amit Dehra and Attorney John C. Miotke. God bless!

      "My dream could not have been realized without Attorneys Amit Dehra and John C. Miotke."

      My family and I would not have been in the U.S. but for Attorney Amit Dehra and Attorney John C. Miotke. I still remember that I had a final order of removal “deportation” and I had lost hope. My family and I were asked to depart the U.S by the Immigration Judge. I still remember that it was a Friday evening when I called Attorney Amit Dehra and explained briefly about my situation and final order of removal. He asked me to come immediately to his office. Amit reviewed all documents and analyzed my case. Within 1-1 ½ hours, Attorney Amit Dehra came to the conclusion that my cases deserved a Motion to Reopen and an Emergency Motion of Stay of Removal. Both Attorneys and their legal staff worked through the weekend and prepared both the Motions. On Monday, ICE Counsel was also informed about the case and the error made by our previous attorney. The Judge granted both our motions and we were asked to appear for Individual Hearing. We received our green cards based on pending I-485. I still have goose bumps when I think about my case.Today my family and I are Lawful Permanent Residents. My daughter has also obtained scholarship in Atlanta, Georgia. She wants to become a physician but this dream could not have been realized without Attorneys Amit Dehra and John C. Miotke.

      "He builds the trust, which is very essential for “Attorney” “Client” relationship."

      Attorney Amit Dehra did a tremendous job in my immigration case. My case had been pending for many years and many immigration attorneys had requested me to stay with the original employer until I get my green card. Because I was getting better opportunities, I did not ideally want to stay with the original employer. I consulted with Attorney Amit Dehra and after proper review of my situation, he advised me of changing employers and filing certain documents with the USCIS. Much to my surprise, within few weeks of responding to the Request for Evidence (“RFE”) issued by USCIS, my green card was approved without any interview. The important thing in the whole process was that the RFE requested me to submit documents from the original I-140 employer. However, Attorney Amit Dehra explained the whole situation to the Service, submitted job offer letter from my new employer along with other documents establishing bona-fides, and my case was approved in matter of days. After my green card came, he also helped me get my children on a “following to join” petition. Now we are Lawful Permanent Residents. I cannot thank enough to Attorney Amit Dehra and his team for helping me out. Also note that I live in Sacramento and I never personally came to Florida to see him. He builds the trust, which is very essential for “Attorney” “Client” relationship.

      "Without quality immigration representation, I am not sure how this could have worked so efficiently."

      I do not know where to start from. I retained Attorney Amit Dehra to help me in obtaining a fiancé visa for my fiancé. My fiancé does posses dual nationality.Dehra Miotke filed the appropriate paperwork with USCIS and after the case was approved it was forwarded to the Consulate for visa interview in a timely fashion. Shockingly, at the time of visa interview, the Consulate denied the visa to my fiancé stating that she had been previously removed from the U.S. and hence require Form I-601 “extreme hardship” waiver. My fiancé and I were disappointed for two reasons: One, per the information of the Consulate, it takes many months and two, the approval is entirely discretionary. When we explained the results of interview to Attorney Dehra, he asked us to remain calm and let him deal with the situation. Dehra Miotke researched the issue and concluded that the Consulate had made a legal error. As per the law, citizens of certain countries who try to enter the U.S. on a “visa waiver” program cannot be removed. Attorney e-mailed to the Consulate with a legal memo and relayed his message about the inadvertent error made by the Consulate. They realized the mistake and immediately scheduled my fiancé for another interview with in a week. Yes, you guessed it right – she got the K-1 visa. After her entry, we got married and Dehra Miotke represented us during the green card process. It went well and my wife is now a Lawful Permanent Resident. All thanks to Attorney Amit Dehra and his team. I have to say that without quality immigration representation, I am not sure how this could have worked so efficiently.

      "I wasn't disappointed."

      Our professional association with Attorney Amit Dehra and his team has been for many years. Dehra Miotke represents us in all aspects of corporate immigration including H-1’s, H1 extensions, consulate visa stamping and associated issues, PERM Labor Certifications, I-140’s and employment based I-485’s. There are numerous issues that we have to discuss pertaining to “green cards” and “H-1Bs” applications. We have been extremely satisfied with Dehra Miotke and their legal team. Our phone calls and e-mails are responded in a timely fashion. Prior to changing our previous immigration attorney, our major concern in retaining new Immigration Law Firm was to get immediate attention and solutions to our immigration needs. We have to say that after experiencing the work ethic of Dehra Miotke, we are comfortable in using them as our immigration attorneys. Without fail , they have obtained H-1B approvals, Labor Certifications and Green Cards for our employees. Many of our employees who have been in touch with Attorney Amit Dehra have not even seen him but have nothing, but all praise for him. Dehra Miotke uses immigration software that practically eliminates the requirements of our employees/clients to be physically present in their office. It goes without saying that we recommend Dehra Miotke for your immigration needs, including corporate representation. You won’t be disappointed.

      "friendly, knowledgeable, and professional."

      Before we met Mr. Amit Dehra, we had received poor legal advice which caused me and my wife a lot of heart-ache and trouble. The advice we received banned me from visiting my wife in the United States and required her to come to London, U.K. to see me in order to maintain our relationship. This was awful for a newlywed couple. My wife had medical issues and I was not available and she had a Center for Senior Citizens which needed help with. We were placed in a vulnerable personal and financial situation by these incompetent lawyers. Luckily my wife found Mr. Amit Dehra. From the initial contact she told me he was friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. We knew we had the right man for the job! However, he had a mess to work with, and we knew nothing at all about immigration laws, which meant we had to have trust in this man; knowing what other law firms had done to us leaving us with no hope of getting together anytime soon. He sorted out the details and got to work immediately. I felt helpless; my wife was so war away and not knowing how I could help her. However, he provided even emotional support to my wife; when she called his office, occasionally in tears. He was never too busy to return a call or e-mail to me in London nor was he flustered when immigration presented yet another hurdle for us to cross. He was calm and always in control of what’s happening. We can never thank him enough. We are very happy now. We have a successful business in Tampa, Florida which my wife may have lost it if Mr. Dehra had not intervened. We have a family now and our adult children are happy…and thankful for finding an expert in dealing with immigration law which is so complex. If you truly need a professional in immigration law, we highly recommend Mr. Amit Dehra. Our next move is naturalization and Mr. Dehra will of course be our lawyer…

      "I have nothing but all praise for his team."

      I have worked with Attorney Amit Dehra and his staff and I have nothing but all praise for his team. I had retained him to work on my employment based case. As a matter of fact, I was unhappy with my previous attorney who was working on my Labor Certification. I changed my immigration attorney. My phone calls and e-mails were promptly responded during my few years of association with Attorney Amit Dehra. After Labor Certification Application was certified, my Form I-140, Application for an Alien Worker was approvedwithout Request for Evidence, in Employment Based second preference category. As there are lengthy delays in I-485 adjudication due to visa number unavailability, I also took legal advice regarding changing employers without putting my green card in jeopardy. After carefully reviewing the circumstances and my new job offer, Amit gave me a green signal to change employers but requested me to file some paperwork pertaining to AC-21 “portability” with the USCIS. In fact, I changed my employers twice and finally when the visa numbers were available for my priority date, my wife and I received the much awaited green cards in the mail without any USCIS “interview”. It was magical. In summary, I highly recommend Attorney Amit Dehra to anyone with U.S. immigration needs. Five stars to him and his team!

      "Very reasonable and he really cares for his clients."

His fees, has always been very reasonable and he really cares for his clients.

      "The case was approved without any hiccup"

      I hired Dehra Miotke to represent me in filing Immigration Petition for the benefit of my mother. All paperwork was filed professionally. My phone calls were returned in a timely fashion. My questions were answered in time. We were always informed about what to expect and the time line. My mother’s green card interview occurred within 3 months of filing for his green card and the case was approved without any hiccup. Attorney Dehra was present with us at the time of adjustment of status interview.

      "I was granted asylum by the Immigration Judge."

      I was granted asylum by the Immigration Judge. My friends and many lawyers I had consulted in the past did not encourage me to file asylum as their answer, without listening to my claim in detail, was “asylum is not a good idea.” Attorney Dehra heard my claim and believed in me. He submitted my asylum statement but it was denied by the Asylum Officer. My case was referred to an Immigration Judge. Attorney Dehra successfully argued my case before the Immigration Judge and my asylum case was granted in less than an hour! I could not have asked for anything better. Attorney Dehra is not working to bring my family to the U.S. Soon I will be with them. My life has changed after the Immigration Judge granted my case. Thank you Attorney Dehra for representing me!

      "Thank you so much Dehra Miotke."

      I have a very interesting story to share! Once of my distant relative, who was a client of Attorney Dehra took me for a legal consultation. My main concern was how I could get my driver’s license renewed. After thoroughly discussing my case, I was surprised by the answer Attorney Dehra provided me. He said, “I can help you in getting a green card and you should have the same in about 6 (six) months” I was shocked. Apparently, there was I-130 petition for which the visa numbers were available but many previous attorneys I had consulted opined that I will have to leave the country to obtain a green card. Furthermore, due to 3 year-10 year bars applicable in the case, I will need waiver in the consulate. I was not comfortable with the previous legal opinions. Anyway, Attorney Dehra informed me that I am protected by section 245(i) of the Act and hence I need not leave the country to obtain my residency. I trusted him. In about 6 months, I was interviewed by the USCIS and was granted my green card.The result was simply shocking! Attorney Dehra did something for me which many lawyers I consulted could not do. Thank you so much Dehra Miotke.

      "I highly recommend their services."

      My case involved few complexities. I was arrested by Immigration and Custom Enforcement (“ICE”) when I voluntarily appeared for NSEERS registration. I had retained Attorney Dehra prior to visiting ICE. I had been already informed by Attorney Dehra about the possibility of my arrest and to save time Motion for Bond Determination was drafted in advance. As expected, I was arrested. Attorney Dehra immediately filed Motion for Bond Determination before the Immigration Judge, and the same was granted. Attorney Dehra successfully argued that I am not a flight risk, that I have no criminal record and that I have relief available through a pending employment based petition filed for the benefit of my wife. After my release, Attorney Dehra was again successful in getting my case terminatedfrom the Immigration Court. It was big relief. Thereafter, Attorney Dehra was able to enroll us in CITRIX, and thus we were scheduled for an Adjustment of Status interview. Attorney Dehra submitted all expected documents at the time of interview and after our detailed interview, the Service granted our case. Now after long journey, both my wife and I are “green card” holders. We do not have the right words to thank Dehra Miotke for their good work! I highly recommend their services.

      "I trusted Attorney Dehra."

      I hired Amit Dehra, Esquire to represent me in my citizenship/naturalization case. I had a criminal issue which was bothering me. Attorney Dehra assured me that there is a significant chance that this criminal conviction will not affect my naturalization application. I trusted Attorney Dehra. He was able to establish that even though I had a criminal issue, I had not been convicted. Now I am a United States citizen. All thanks for Amit Dehra.

      "The result was simply fantastic – all thanks to Attorney Amit Dehra"

      My husband and I met Attorney Amit Dehra in his Orlando office. We had visited many attorneys, who did not give us any hope. Within an hour of our meeting and reviewing all documents, Attorney Amit Dehra informed us thateven though my husband entered the United States illegally, he can still adjust and receive a green card. He informed us that my husband is a beneficiary of section 245(i) as there was a immigration petition filed for his benefit prior to April 2001, something none of the previous immigration lawyers were able to spot. We were ecstatic. Attorney Dehra filed the paperwork with the Service – we had green card interview and my husband’s green card was approved. The result was simply fantastic – all thanks to Attorney Amit Dehra. After good 10 years my husband is legal in the U.S.

      "The result was sweet! I must thank Attorney Amit Dehra for his hard work."

      My case is a classic case where the Service was unsatisfied if I benefit from section 245(i) of the Act. I had a previous Labor Certification, through which I became eligible to receive a green card despite the fact that I had been living in the U.S illegally for many years. My previous lawyer did a good job but still USCIS was unsatisfied. I hired Amit Dehra, Esquire of Dehra Miotke. He did something which my previous lawyer did not suggest. He contacted the appropriate federal authority in Tallahassee and was able to obtain a letter, even though our request was to authenticate a 9 year old record. This letter unequivocally established that I was eligible to claim relief under section 245(i). Attorney Dehra filed a Motion to Reopen and the same was granted. My I-485 was reopened and it was approved without any adjustment of status interview. The result was sweet! I must thank Attorney Amit Dehra for his hard work.

      "From the word go, he was positive."

      My wife and I had been living without proper valid immigration documents in the U.S. for more than 10 years. Previously, our I-140 and I-485 had been denied. Our daughter became a U.S. citizen. We retained Immigration lawyer Amit Dehra to help us with our green card. From the word go, he was positive. He filed the correct paperwork and we received our green cards without any “immigration interview”. We were expecting an interview and were prepared for the same but it was good to know that the Service did not believe that an interview was required. After many years, my wife and I are green card holders. After good 15 years I travelled internationally and yes, I was able to enter the U.S. without any issues. It was a very good feeling. Thanks to our Immigration lawyer Amit Dehra.

      "Each of these cases was handled as if it was his family. What more can one ask for?"

      As the HR Manager for a global IT Solutions provider, I have relied on Amit and his team to handle the painstaking tasks involved with employing foreign nationals in today’s economic and immigration-focused society. No matter what challenge I lay before them, they meet each one with the same approach: Ask questions, formulate a strategy, review with the client and get their inputs, finalize the case, get POSITIVE results!!! During my career, I have worked with more than two dozen attorneys, in a multitude of fields, and rank Amit Dehra right there at the top. Many attorneys hold back certain information that a client could use as reference material, in fear that doing so would eliminate the need for the attorney’s services in the future. Amit and his team are just the opposite; they seem to take pride in educating their clients and watching the relationship grow from attorney-client to trusted advisor-long term business advocate. Our four year relationship has seen more than 50 foreign nationals, and their families, begin, continue, or realize, their dream of coming to the United States for either educational, employment, or personal opportunities they could not get elsewhere. Each of these cases was handled as if it was his family. What more can one ask for? If more firms lived up to the standards enforced at Dehra Miotke, maybe more people would see lawyers as an ally, instead of the enemy. Each case is different in its particulars, but the one constant is that Amit and his team make the beneficiary (and the employer!!) feel as if this case is the only one they are working.

      "I highly recommend his services for your immigration needs."

      I am a small business owner in the technology industry. Over the past year, I have used the services of Mr. Dehra and his firm to assist with the hiring of three highly qualified individuals. I was a complete novice in this process. Mr. Dehra guided me all through the process and helped me successfully get the approvals for my case filings. He has returned my calls over the weekends, after hours and has patiently answered all questions. I cannot ask for a more dependable and accessible attorney. I highly recommend his services for your immigration needs.

      "I consider myself very fortunate to have retained Amit for my immigration needs."

      Amit is an exceptionally talented and gifted immigration lawyer. His knowledge of immigration law – both substantive and procedural and its application are truly amazing. Amit has an eye for detail but at the same time his ability to sift through the factual maze and pick the relevant issues is incredible. Amit’s focus and zeal to get results for his clients are also phenomenal. I consider myself very fortunate to have retained Amit for my immigration needs. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Attorney Amit Dehra and wish him luck for his future endeavors.

      "Thank you Attorney Dehra."

      I can explain the relief my wife and I received from the services of Attorney Amit Dehra. We had retained him to represent us before Immigration Court. We were unhappy with our previous Attorney who was totally unprofessional and filed paperwork before Court without even discussing with us. So much so – she submitted my handwritten declaration to the court. It appeared our case had no hope. When we retained Attorney Dehra, he requested court to continue the case so that he can prepare the case and submit more documentation. He sat with us for many hours, prepared our case and submitted it to the court. After at least 3-4 hours of testimony, the court reserved the judgment. Attorney Dehra litigated the case with great confidence. His line of questioning in the court was spot on. After few months, the Court ruled in our favor – but, Immigration and Custom Enforcement filed appeal against this decision to Board of Immigration Appeal. Attorney Dehra gave us strength and confidence that we have extremely good chances on winning the appeal as well. As things turned out, ICE withdrew their appeal, which as per Attorney Dehra is extremely rare. Now, our case is approved and we can sleep at night! Thank you Attorney Dehra.

      "I do not have the words to thank Dehra Miotke."

      I was in a desperate situation. I worked with one of the top IT (Fortune 500) companies. My Form I-140 was already approved through this employer and my Form I-485 was pending. I had not renewed my H-1B, as I relied on pending I-485 and was expecting it to be approved soon. Unknown to me, there was a Request for Evidence (“RFE”) issued in my pending Form I-485 and this RFE was not forwarded to me. As a result my Form I-485 was denied. By this time, I was no longer working with my sponsoring employer. I was in severe stress. I contacted several immigration attorneys. I consulted Immigration Attorney Amit Dehra of Dehra Miotke. He was quick to understand all the issues. He informed us that I am eligible to file a brand new Form I-140 Immigrant Petition based on extraordinary ability underEmployment Based First Preference category. I was also informed that there is no need to find an employer to file petition under this category. He also suggested, which we agreed, to file Form I-485 concurrently with Form I-140. My principal concern was that I had been out of status and how could I remain in status. Attorney Dehra explained me that even though I am out of status, but I could take advantage of section 245(k), which in summary states that employment based “green card beneficiary” could still be issued a green card to the applicant as long as he/she has been out of status for less than 180 days, provided certain other conditions are met.After filing Form I-140, and I-485, we received a boiler plate Notice of Intent to Deny. Attorney Dehra and his staff worked tirelessly. With their hard work, we were able to establish that my work has made a significant contribution within my field, that I command a significantly higher salary for my work based on my abilities, that I played a leading or critical role for organizations or establishments that have a distinguished reputation. I was nervous but Attorney Dehra was always positive. As a result of Attorney Dehra and his staff’s hard work, my I-140 and I-485 was approved. The result was simply unbelievable. I do not have the words to thank Dehra Miotke.

      "Services of Dehra Miotke were truly worth it."

      We had retained Dehra Miotke to help us with consulate follow up. I was issued H-1B but my wife was refused H-4 and was asked to send documents pertaining to my H-1B (including pay stubs, letter from employer, taxes etc.). They had issued 221(g) document to my wife. After careful review of notice of rejection from US consulate in India, Attorney Dehra prepared the response. My wife again appeared and was issued H-4 visa. Services of Dehra Miotke were truly worth it.

      "Thank you Attorney Dehra."

      We had retained Dehra Miotke to represent us in a family based petition. My mother could not produce either a Not Found Birth Certificate or Birth Certificate due to unique circumstances of the facts. She was born in South Africa, but was an Indian citizen. Later, she moved to United Kingdom and became a British citizen. It was difficult to convince USCIS that under the circumstances none of the requested documents i.e., Not Found Birth Certificate or Birth Certificate were available or could be made available.Indian consulate in Houston would not issue a birth certificate because my mother was a British citizen and was not Indian citizen anymore. Eventually, Attorney Dehra was able to present the facts before USCIS and convinced them to use secondary evidence (which we had). The case was approved and my mother became a Lawful Permanent Resident. Thank you Attorney Dehra.

      "It feels great. Thank you Dehra Miotke!"

      I had retained Attorney Dehra in the year 2004. I was placed in removal proceeding back then. Attorney Dehra defended me but the Judge did not grant my case. We filed a timely appeal of my asylum claim. While the appeal was pending before Board of Immigration Appeals, Attorney Dehra filed a Motion to Remand my case based on I-130 which was filed by my father long time ago. Even though visa was not available (but would have been in near future), BIA remanded the case back to the Immigration Judge/Court. My hearing was held and Immigration Judge granted my case. I received my green card. It feels great. Thank you Dehra Miotke!

      "All thanks to Attorney Amit Dehra."

      I still think whether it is true or not. How did it happen? I was in removal proceedings when I contacted Attorney Dehra. My previous attorney suggested that I should request voluntary departure from the Orlando Immigration court and leave the U.S. on my own accord. This is when I consulted Attorney Dehra. He informed me that I am eligible to file “battered spouse” petition i.e., Form I-360 as I had been a victim. We submitted extensive documents to USCIS as proof of how I am a battered spouse (even though I am a male). In the interim, Attorney Dehra requested continuance from Immigration Judge. My I-360 was approved and thereafter I filed for adjustment before the court. Immigration Judge granted my green card. I cannot believe it that I finally have a green card. All thanks to Attorney Amit Dehra.

      "My immigration problem was resolved by Attorney Amit Dehra."

      It is amazing how my immigration problem was resolved by Attorney Amit Dehra. My husband and I live in the jurisdiction of West Palm Beach USCIS office. I have been living in the U.S. without documents for more than 10 years. I came to this country as a young child with my parents, who have since left the U.S. Prior to consulting Attorney Dehra, many attorneys with whom I consulted gave me no hope and informed me that there is no way I can adjust in the U.S. This is because I came to this country illegally. It was stunning to hear from Attorney Dehra that because I was a beneficiary of a petition which my real uncle filed for my father’s benefit many years ago, I was beneficiary of section 245(i) i.e., I can get my green card even if I entered the country illegally provided certain conditions are met. No other Attorney informed me about this to me. Attorney Dehra prepared the documentation. At the interview Attorney Dehra explained the USCIS how I qualified under section 245(i). Thereafter, my case was approved and I received by green card. I must thank Attorney Dehra for making it happen for us.

      "I am thankful to Attorney Dehra for his services."

      My PERM Labor Certification was certified/approved without an audit. My labor certification was filed under Occupational Therapist position. Furthermore, I also received EB-2 approval for my I-140. I am thankful to Attorney Dehra for his services. Of course, now, I have to wait for my priority dates to get current.

      "Thank you to Attorney Dehra for a meaningful representation."

      My case is a classic employment based case. I am a pharmacist manager now. My initial labor certification was filed by another law firm, even though I wanted to go through Attorney Dehra. Labor Certification was certified but under EB-3 category. My Form I-140 was also approved under EB-3 professional category. Due to long waiting times (priority dates) for Indian born applicants under EB-3 category, the wait was extremely frustrating. Attorney Dehra advised me to file a second labor certification through my new employer under EB-2 (employment based second preference) category. We filed it under my new job title i.e., Pharmacy Manger and labor was certified without any audit. My Form I-140 was also approved under EB-2 category. What happened thereafter was magic: my previous I-485 was pending based on I-140 approved under EB-3.Attorney Dehra was able to get the same I-485 approved by assigning not only same old priority date which belonged to EB-3 case, but also using the existing I-485 and getting it approved. If not more, I saved at least 3-4 years. It is such a relief. Thank you to Attorney Dehra for a meaningful representation.

      "I have nothing but to say thank you to Dehra Miotke."

      It was a marathon hearing which lasted approximately 4 hours before Immigration Judge. Immigration was trying to establish that I was involved infraudulent marriage, which was not true. I was nervous throughout the hearing. Attorney Dehra litigated my case with extreme caution and with aggression. The Honorable court relied on my testimony and found me credible and finally granted me my permanent green card. Initially, the government reserved appeal on my case but later informed the judge that they will take the decision of the judge as the final decision. I have nothing but to say thank you to Dehra Miotke.
