    Annette Brigsted combines the highest level of professionalism and competence with a deep and authentic empathy for the people she assists. After a series of missteps by my employer’s attorney leading to not one but two rejections, Attorney Brigsted was able to rebuild my case from its foundation and once in her hands I was able to get my green cards in less than six months. Annette worked tirelessly to ensure I would maintain my position as an academic. I recommend her highly and without reserv Read less

    I've worked with Ms. Brigsted both as a consultant when my company was working on my work visas, and later in the process of obtaining a Greencard. I most appreciate her professionalism and demeanor, always providing clear explanation of the process and options available to me so I felt comfortable with the strategy for each instance. Olga Paguada, her paralegal, is also great. As a team, I always felt that they were readily available to address any questions. They a pleasure to work with! Read less

    I approached Attorney Brigsted with an unusual and complicated case about a year ago. The case was resolved a few days ago because I was fortunate to have chosen her as my attorney. I believe Attorney Brigsted to be the best Immigration Attorney in New England and while this may not be a fair statement considering I don't know many Immigration attorneys, it is hard to imagine someone more dedicated, more invested, more professional and with a better grasp of the law than she does.

    I have known attorney Annette Brigsted for over a decade now. It all started with my work visa process for USA followed by my green card. To my experience she is one of the most wonderful professional I have ever interacted with. She is meticulous with her work and always honest with her opinion. Being an immigrant herself, she connects to my case seamlessly, as she has experienced both sides of this process. I trust her with my work and I wholeheartedly recommend her. Read less
