My wife and I worked with Brent during her visa and her adjustment of status process. Brent was a pleasure to work with. Brent communicated each step in the process clearly and answered all of our questions in a timely manner. Brent provided quality advice and coaching throughout the process. Brent's fee is reasonable for the value of providing a road-map for the immigration process and otherwise making the daunting process of immigration manageable. Thank you Brent for all of your help.

I highly recommend the Poirier Immigration Law office! The attorney represented my husband and me in receiving my Green Card, and it was evident through working with him that he is knowledgeable, experienced, and respectful. He took his time explaining everything in detail; he was helpful and responsive to all our questions and concerns. Our process was only four months long, thanks to the attorney's professionalism.

He is a pleasure to work with, and if the need arises, we will avail of his services again.

Brent Poirier's knowledgeable and competent support allowed us to successfully accomplish the daunting and complex process of getting my spouse visa (with the added complexity of my husband and I both being out of the country).
He was always extremely prompt in replying and ready to explain, clarify and brief in order to make sure we were comfortable with every step along the way.
In addition to his undeniable professionalism, Brent's humanity and kindness have played a crucial role in this past year: it might be easy to find a good lawyer (well, not really :)) but it is certainly very precious to find a good person who truly cares about his work and his clients.
We recommend him from the bottom of our hearts.

- Dave McGoldrick. 8/10/2018
If you are looking for a reliable and professional immigration attorney then you have to contact Mr. Poirier. We would highly recommend him to anyone who goes through an immigration process . Our process (green card through marriage) went smooth, without any problems and only took us 5 months. He also prepared us for the interview so it was easy to handle. Brent has a high knowledge in this field and answered all our questions within one business day via mail or phone. He offers personal appointments in the evening, which was very convenient for us. His price was moderate and he offered payments too. Brent was a great support for us and we are more than happy that we hired him!

Brent is an absolutely amazing lawyer that I would recommend to anyone needing the help with the immigration process. Brent had continued contact throughout the whole process and was not just a lawyer but someone we could talk to, to help us get through the process. Brent provided emotional support and was there for us every step of the way (he even wore a rainbow tie to our interview :) he answered all questions that we had and always in a timely manner. My wife Natasha and I are so blessed to have met him and work with him, it feels wonderful knowing that my wife and I can finally rest easy knowing that this process is finally complete. I can't thank you enough Brent for all you did for Natasha and I. Anyone looking for help with this process, definitely contact Brent, he will make everything happen and in a timely manner. Thank you again Brent!!

I searched threw the internet to find a lawyer. I found Mr Poirer's website and read about him. I told my husband I found a good lawyer for us. My husband was a little hesitant because of the lawyer he had before. I said trust me he will be good. I have a good feeling about this. So I called Mr Poirer and he set us up quick with an appointment. He is very accommodating and very professional. Mr Poirer keept in contact with us threw the whole process. Even late night and weekend phone calls , e-mail & Skype to work around my job. In just a short time all of this was done. We are very happy and very satisfied with Mr Poirer's work.
Thank you so much!

Brent Poirier is an outstanding immigration lawyer and my husband and I would highly recommend his services! He made the process of obtaining a greed card through marriage not just easy, but a complete pleasure. His fees are absolutely reasonable and his service was exceptional. Brent was honest, caring and extremely knowledgable throughout every step of the case. We definitely could not have completed our green card without his assistance. He gave us total confidence from the first meeting to the final interview. We will definitely be consulting Brent for future immigration concerns!

Brent was responsive, knowledgeable and accommodating. His fees were reasonable and his service was exceptional- Always refreshing to encounter such a combination.
- calvin ramus. 7/24/2017
Mr. Poirier was very helpful in every step of the way when getting a green card for my wife. Being from California, we thought finding an Immigration Attorney in New Hampshire would be difficult and expensive but Mr. Poirier offered us a very reasonable price. He even offered it in payments, which was better for us since we didn't have all the money right when we started the process. He would answer all our questions within a couple hours and would explain everything in detail. The process was also very quick, I mean I'm sure it depends with different cases, but we were very impressed that it only took 3 months for everything to get approved. We will definitely be calling him back when my wife starts the process for citizenship. My wife and I would highly recommend Brent Poirier for anyone looking for an Immigration Attorney.
- Jake Asiata. 7/4/2017
Brent was very professional and handled our complex case with ease. He was quick to respond to all of our questions. He prepared us for the interview thoroughly and all of his experience really showed. When complications arose he held his composure and handled them with confidence and speed. I would definitely love to work with him again once I qualify for my citizenship. I would absolutely recommend his services to anyone undergoing immigration.
- Alissa Ananieva. 4/12/2017
Mr Brent Professional Lawyer, and good person. He provided best service . Will work with him in future ..
- sherafgan idiev. 3/11/2017
Brent helped my family with the Affidavit of Support. Initially I thought that the entire work would take only a couple of hours; however, it turned out that it was not as much about the attorney’s work as I and my relatives had to collect all the necessary documentation and to complete the final verifications. Brent was always providing clear instructions and was making sure that the paperwork that I was giving to him was correct. He was very courteous and professional. After I had provided him with all the documents, it took for him only a couple of days to fill out the Affidavit. Then he followed up and reminded me to contact the National Visa Center. The Center accepted the Affidavit without any objections and requests to correct. Thank you, Brent! You saved us a lot of time and money!
- Alexander Nash. 5/20/2016
I first became aware of Brent many years ago through an immigration lawyers listserv. His opinions and advice clearly showed that he was a thoughtful and wise attorney. When he moved to New England, I was very pleased to meet the person who had such a fine legal mind, and when I made his acquaintance found that he was a fine gentleman as well (the two, sadly, do not always go hand-in-hand!)
Naturally, when I had a tricky R-1 Visa, I sought him as co-counsel due to his experience. I was very pleased with what he was able to do for my clients, as were they. I would heartily recommend Attorney Poirier to anyone who needs a caring, competent immigration lawyer.
- Joshua Paulin. 11/21/2015
Brent Poirier is the best immigration attorney in the world. I got my green card within 30 days of application as a direct result of his work. Brent pursued my case in the National Interest Waiver for extraordinary ability category directly from an F1 status. This was a tough case as I was involved with multiple companies and running some startup ventures at the same time. My work permit was just about to expire and I had missed the H1B quota. I was working on some breakthrough innovation in the field of software engineering, distributed systems and machine learning. Any gap or break becoz of immigration related issues would have meant serious consequences to my work and career.
His team diligently solved all issues and crafted an extremely compelling story furnished with a huge volume of evidences right on time. End result ? Approval notice came within 30 days of application. This is probably the fastest ever green card ever done in US history !
If you are to hire an immigration attorney, it can't get any better than this.
