What Clients Say About Mark A. Ivener, Esq.

“If I could give him more than 5 stars I would. After just getting to the states, I had an experience with an attorney(not for immigration) who literally scammed me out of $32,000 in 4 days. So I was very skeptical when I started looking for an EB-5 attorney. In my first meeting with Mark Ivener he was so professional that he took as much time as was needed to explain the whole process of EB-5 making sure that everything was clear even to my father who was with me and his English wasn’t as good. Speaking of professional, Deborah at his office is one of the hardest working people I’ve met. Both Deborah and Mark put so much effort in working with me when we got to proving where the money came. It was a lot of work given that my country of birth is terrible at keeping records, yet they did all the hard work making things very simple for me. I could write a couple more pages describing how pleasant that experience was but I guess one more thing I have to say is that I never felt like I wasn’t sure how things were going, mainly because of the constant phone calls I got from Deborah giving me updates and keeping me posted on everything. If you are looking for an immigration attorney, I’m positive that going with Mark Ivener would be the best decision you can make. To Mark and Deborah, thanks again for all your help, I have nothing but fond memories of my experience with you over the past 5 years.”

Mohamed E.

“I can’t say enough positive things about Mark Ivener and his team, including Deborah. They navigated me through an extremely difficult and complex immigration situation, all the way to obtaining my full permanent resident card. When I was searching for an immigration attorney, I was referred through legal channels to Mark as he was/is rated as the best immigration attorney in the Los Angeles/So Cal area. He certainly lived up to that. Sure, he’s expensive, but it’s very important to have a legal team you can fully trust with your life and Mark Ivener…certainly passed that test with flying colors.”
