Thumbs down Frustrated with Fragomen

Hi - I have had a very bad experience with Fragomen, everything was filed correctly but the way they treat their client is pathetic. I have heard a lot of people are victims of this big corporation, lets get together to fix this.

Thumbs down ahhhhhh Fragomen

The mere mention of Fragomen makes my blood boil . This law frim is the most useless in my opinion. They have no concern for their eventual client. My labor application was rejected because of the inefficient ppl at Fragomen. Their attitude was still so casual as if nothing happened. I am forced to use them but I would not recommend this Law firm even to an enemy.

This is my first post in this forum, only because I am seeing this Fragomen thread. I had a very bad experience, while working with a 'so called "reputed" India's largest software company' . Fragomen handled my L1 extension for this company, there was an RFE on a simple matter, but they took the whole time provided in RFE deadline to respond to the RFE. Finally when they responded, they responded to USCIS with the supporting documentation of some other employee. USCIS immediately denied my L1 extension petition, and I had to pack up and leave the country in a gap of 1 week. This Fragomen lawyers or paralegals have no concern or not even rendered an apology on this fiasco.

Default hi

I have had all good experiences with fragoment till now, and I have been dealing with them for a couple of years now. They were very professional i should say. Again I work for one of the top 3 financial firms , and my employer has fragomen as preferred law firm.

Default No one is contesting...

that Fragomen is a big firm but they are absolutely careless and have no regard for the eventual client / applicant. All said and done I am getting an opportunity to bash them I am not going to miss it. They have messed with my life and career. They deserve to embaressed in public .

Default my experience a little different

I have used Fragomen in two different situations...

1) Contracted by my employer. This was frustrating from my perspective. I felt a little like an object, mostly dealt with paralegals.

2) Contracted by me. This was much better, I could call the attorneys up anytime, and get an answer when I needed it. Had excellent relationship with paralegals.

These were two different departments.

I do think that I suffered from some less than optimal advice, filed EB3 when EB2 would have been better. That was in 2002 when EB3 EB2 EB1 for all was current. EB2 was a tougher sell to Dept Labor, but I think would have worked, attorney didn't want to risk, and wasn't sure if a downgrade would be offered if EB2 failed.

One thing was consistent.... expensive.

I all but begged them to send out an email to clients referencing DC rally.

I have raised the idea with core of adding a field(s) to profile giving attorneys name/address. If we have a lot of members with Fragomen, maybe we could write a group letter asking them to send out a mass email to other clients.

So please be civil in these public forums.

I work for the Wall Street Investment Bank, I don't see any reason why Fragomen is a bad one, most of the banks deals with them.

Bad for some people, doesn't mean it's universal for everyone, for that matter that can happen to any law firm. :-)

Default Point taken

Mark, point taken but I do believe if we can raise some stink then we should. The Law firms need to realise that the country club memebership is coming at the cost of some poor sap stuck in the immigration rut and all he/ she needs is kind words and sound advice. I shall stop my ranting about Fragomen after this post.

On your other point about law firms participating. What makes you think they already do not have a member in the forums. If they read this good then the messeage has been sent across.

I did not mean what you imply. Yes it can happen to any law firm. I was expressing the pain I experienced as per the topic of the first post. I am glad it worked out for you and wish no one ill will.
