Supportive and Professional

God sends angels in different forms for our family, and Attorney Elif Keles was one of them. She is an awesome person who is always willing to go the extra mile. We did not feel alone during the hard times. Throughout the deportation proceedings, she was always supportive, caring, and understanding. She is an excellent lawyer– very professional and knowledgeable. Elif always returned my calls or emails whenever I had a question or concern, even when I had to talk to her during her days off. It is so nice to be able to express your concerns to an attorney and have things explained to you without being rushed or bombarded with terms you don’t understand. Our whole family is very pleased with Elif Keles…she is just awesome. And WE are very happy to have our family member home. Thank you Mr. Shusterman for having Mrs. Keles in your team.


Outstanding Immigration Attorney

Mr. Shusterman and his team of attorneys are outstanding and clearly some of the best in the field of immigration law, based on our experience. We (my spouse and I) recently got our Green cards approved with Mr. Shusterman’s office representing us. After being stuck in the black hole of immigration backlog for many years, we had almost given up hope for any resolution soon, until we got in touch with Mr. Shusterman. He assured us that cross-chargeability would work in our case and that there was light at the end of the tunnel. Throughout the course of our consultations, I came to know Mr. Shusterman as an extremely knowledgeable and experienced attorney. His approach was realistic coupled with optimism. We were given the entire, bigger picture, before focusing on the specifics of our case, which gave us a sound understanding of the whole, and confidence in Mr. Shusterman’s ability to pursue our case. I appreciate their office for being approachable, extremely professional and pushing relentlessly for the success of our filing. Personally, I do not feel we could be in better hands, and sometimes regret that we could’ve easily shaved off at least a year of waiting in the backlog if we had approached them earlier. Can’t thank them enough. Highly recommended!

Best Lawyer

This is the best immigration law firm in my opinion. If you want the best lawyers working on your case, this is the place.

Carl Shusterman provides professional advices on my green card filing. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in the field. From the first conversation, he correctly predicted what to anticipate in my case. His expertise gave me confidence to continue with the firm, immediately after I talked with him.

Ellen Lee helps me during the interview process and advises me on the process followed. She is very supportive and handles the procedure smoothly. She impressed me not only with the professionalism, but also with the art of communication as an outstanding attorney.

Jay Pounders have been advising me over the course of several years on various tedious filing procedures. He is informative and supportive over a time frame of several years. Immigration process is time-consuming, and Jay’s support is very consistent and reliable.

This firm is a good professional team with outstanding leadership and talented professionals. I wish that I came to Carl Shusterman’s firm earlier for professional assistance. That could have saved tons of sleepless nights and grey hairs. I am glad I did when I was referred by a lawyer friend several years ago.

Carl Shusterman is Simply the Best!!

I am a Los Angeles-based news reporter, who hired Carl and his team of attorneys to help me acquire permanent residency in the United States. I was dreading the arduous and bureaucratic process, but Carl and his staff were so professional and efficient, they helped the procedure go very smoothly. Carl has extensive experience both as an INS Prosecutor, and in private practice, which gives him a thorough understanding of the entire immigration process. He is also well-versed in U.S. immigration policy, and keeps up with the latest trends in immigration law. From your first conversation with Carl, you immediately become aware of his integrity and commitment, and moreover, the passion he exudes for his work. Any concern I raised was immediately addressed. Phone calls were answered in a timely manner. Information I requested about the process was promptly forwarded. And there was never a complaint from his staff. They were always courteous and attentive, making me feel that my case was the only one being handled by the firm, when in reality I was likely one of hundreds of clients. That’s right, the Law Offices of Carl Shusterman has gained a reputation as the “go-to” firm for immigration cases. Carl believes that immigrants have played a pivotal role in making the United States one of the greatest nations on earth, so he will work to help those he believes will contribute to the greater good of this country. Be warned: Once your case has been settled, you’ll likely still continue to hear from Carl. His genuine warmth and kindness make it near impossible not to become his friend. Thank you Carl.

Great EB5 Attorney

Ms.Demirovic is very knowledgeable in EB5 and Business Immigration law. Not only she is a warm and nice person, but she handles cases thoroughly with the help of her staff and the results are amazing. She is highly talented and a very good lawyer. I believe Belma is absolutely the best EB5 and Business Immigration law attorney in the States.

Best Immigration Firm

I had sought help from two other immigration attorneys in Los Angeles before a fellow associate recommended attorney Carl Shusterman. Carl and his staff, attorney Rajakrishna Iyer and Senior Paralegal Jay Pounders were wonderful, professional, with a thorough understanding of the immigration process for obtaining visa’s for artists. As they expedited our case with the utmost confidence and speed, we are truly grateful for their hard work and guidance throughout the proceedings. I highly commend and recommend Mr Shusterman’s law firm for all immigration issues.”


Hired for a Direct EB-5 Investment Project

I hired Belma to process our Direct EB-5 Investment Project consisting of 2 investors. She provided clear insight to the EB-5 strategies starting from the proper entity structures to the timeline of the application process to making sure the business plan and PPM’s were in line with each other. She showed deep understanding of the issues USCIS had and was able to lead me, the business plan team and the securities attorney through this process and helping us to file in a timely manner. She is also very personable and great to work with, making the long conference calls much more bearable. I would highly recommend her for any EB-5 related work!

Former Client | AVVO Review

A Life Changing Law Firm

My family and I were former clients of Mr. Carl Shusterman and I can honestly say that he had a tremendous impact on our lives – a very positive one. Maybe some of you have heard of us, as we were in the newspapers and media sources and it was thanks to Mr. Shusterman and his wonderful paralegals that we were able to overcome many of the obstacles that immigration lay in our path. My name is Diana Cabrera and I am now 17 years old but when my parents filed their case I was about 10 years old. I was truly very young and had to endure many difficult experiences; however, I had complete and utter faith in Mr. Shusterman and his work. He inspired in me the will to fight and to continue and to pursue my dreams. He was a tremendous source of comfort often contacting us to let us know the stage that we were found in. Even when my parents had been denied and they had been told to pack and get out of this country, Mr. Shusterman rushed to find an alternative in order to ensure that my parents could stay. It is important to understand that there are not only a couple of people filing for a permanent resident card, there are millions and so the process can be a lengthy one. However, Mr. Shusterman was with us every step of the way ensuring that everything was filed correctly and on time and even asking for more in order to have more evidence with which to aid our case. For a quick summary of what we had to go through and the time that it took to finalize our case please click on this link: Cabrera Family Wins Right to Remain in U.S. It is understandable that some people wish and have the idea that everything shall be resolved quickly, however this is not true and it takes time to go through the entire process. Overall I can say that Mr. Shusterman and his colleagues were wonderful, supportive, and very dedicated people. Something that my mom shall never forget is that there was not only one attorney working on the case but rather a combination of attorneys all with their special expertise. It is that which distinguishes Mr. Shusterman’s firm from the rest and he genuinely cares about his clients; further evidence of his dedication and wonderful service is that if you review our case, during our court meetings there was not only one attorney representing us. In fact there were various and they were all very helpful and warm and loving and caring. If you have any questions for me that you would like me to answer please feel free to contact me at I will be more than happy to answer your questions.
