"Tim is an extraordinary professional: He has just been perfect in all my immigration issues. When the legal issue is in the best hands - he then tops it by understanding and personally caring about the emotions that come with the immigration stress. I have known Tim as a professional on immigration for about 20 years and I fully trust his expertise."
Elisabeth Berger - President of ABP Inc.

"I was recommended Tim by a fellow musician, when I was looking for a lawyer to help me get my O1 visa, and I subsequently hired him. Tim was always professional, amiable, quick to respond, and made the normally difficult visa procedure, very smooth and manageable. Tim would also go beyond the call of duty answering any extra questions I had on immigration and helping me with other immigration issues, even after I got the visa. I would recommend him to anyone else without reservation."

Gemma from New Zealand

"Since I came to the US fifteen years ago, Timothy Bakken has been crucial in helping me build a life here, taking me from visa to green card. I could not have asked for a more efficient, knowledgeable and sensitive guide, and I could not be more grateful to him for making these stressful procedures comprehensible and manageable."

Jonathan, classical guitarist and lecturer at the University of Denver

"Tim is a world class immigration attorney, high quality service, excellent problem solver, detail oriented, incredibly thoughtful, and a pleasure to work with. Tim helped me and my wife get our H-1B and H4 visas in just a few months. It was a very complicated case considering the difference in nationalities between me and my wife plus our international marriage in China which added more complexity but Tim skillfully untangled the challenges of our immigration issues and get our visas approved in record time. After we moved to the United States, my employer supported me to start applying for a greencard and choose an immigration attorney. I’ve contacted multiple immigration law firms for cost comparisons and Timothy Bakken’s law firm came out as the most cost effective option. Tim represented both mine and my wife’s greencard applications and both got successfully approved in less than a year which was very impressive. Tim made me feel very comfortable during the whole process. He responded to emails quickly with very detailed information, provided reassurance and advise which made me felt like a top priority. Immigration journey is supposed to be a very intimidating, emotional and stressful process but Tim made it look too easy that I had a peace of mind and focus more on delivering great results to my employer during the entire process. I’ve been passing Tim’s name along to my colleagues and friends who need his services and I highly recommend him for any immigration issues."

Rolando from The Philippines


"I am very grateful for Timothy Bakken's help, guiding me through the immigration process. He answered all my questions quickly, clearly and completely, and prepared my documents quickly, and most importantly, got me a green card!"

Thomas from Canada

"I learned about Tim through a recommendation. I benefited from his services in employment-based visa (EB3 -> EB2 upgrade) and eventually marriage-based green card. From his perspective, I was probably a small to mid sized revenue client. However, I felt like he treated me the same as any other client. 

He's always tuned into my needs (for my level of involvement in the process, the frequency of updates on my case, etc.). When DOMA was struck down, he was at a conference to learn about the implications. He called me from the conference to tell me what it meant for me. I didn't even know he did marriage-based green cards so I was already Googling other attorneys. We got our entire application completed and submitted in one month which was no small task. His fees were pretty darn reasonable compared to some bigger law firms. My services were billed on a fixed fee basis."

Karan from India

"I found Timothy and his Bakken Law through a friend of mine the spring of 2011. I came over as a tourist and got married two months later. I started the "green card" process late March and already in early June I had received my conditional green card, valid for two years. I did most of the paperwork my self, since I had worked with immigration issues in my home country, but Timothy and his Bakken Law helped me go through the documents and gave me advices that was really helpful and useful at the time and also later in the process. His work fees was more than great, and I don't think I would have gotten my application accepted that fast, without his help. I would like to recommend his work, integrity and services to other immigrants to the USA." 

Torgrim from Norway

"HE is one of best attorneys I have met who really take care of his clients and you can expect a reply even if you ask him a question at mid night. Happy to be his client."

Anjali from India
