Testimonials

“Hayden’s firm and her team is nothing but the BEST. I’m happy to say that I got my green card last year! Hayden Immigration helped me to get my visa stamping in the US embassy in Canada, during a crucial part when I had to switch from B1 to L1 in 2008. Getting that visa helped me travel back to India tension free after years and get married. I have been blessed with a daughter and have a wonderful family now. Getting that visa was a huge milestone and gave me confidence to grow in my career and raise a beautiful family in this wonderful country. Thank you to Hayden and her wonderful team for the support and help that they showed. My experience with team was absolutely fantastic, one of the best I would say. They collected all my documents/deliverables and made it into a book which was so easy to show to the immigration officer and they had multiple calls with me to prep me for the interview and when I walked in to the embassy I was pretty confident as they did accompany me into the embassy. I really appreciate it from the bottom of my heart to what Hayden and her team did for me. You guys truly made a difference. God bless and stay gold!”

“When I met Frances I was at my wits end as I had so many problems regarding my 01-A Visa and it was a very complex case which other lawyers chose not to take on. She however took it on confidently and the results were phenomenal thanks to her commitment, knowledge and professionalism. I couldn’t have done this without her and I highly recommend her to everyone.”

“Frances Hayden is a ‘best in class’ Immigration Attorney. While it would be ideal for a Business Executive to respond quickly and thoroughly, the interruptions of my daily obligations created inconsistencies in communication. Frances graciously, professionally, persistently, intelligently and innovatively took initiative to push through to completion the documentation gathering and presentation necessary to submit required paperwork to the U.S. Consular. Frances worked to educate me to generate a mutual agreement on issues that were foreign (no pun intended, maybe) to me. The servant leadership of Frances is undeniably a part of her value based character. Frances earned my respect . . . kindly.”

“I was thoroughly taken care of from stepping out at the airport until returning once all work had been complete. Not only did the assistance of a contact in Mexico City help overcome the intensive language problems but I was also provided with where to and not to eat. I would definitely recommend the business for the whole package that it provides.”

“I recently contacted Frances to assist in my visa application. I found her to be extremely knowledgable with regards to the particular niche I was facing, and the processes / forms etc that I needed to go through to complete my application. She prepared a thorough legal brief for me, and we had conference calls and she was always available over email / phone which made the whole experience run smoothly. I’m happy to say that with Frances’s help my visa has been granted.”

“Based on the recommendation of friends familiar with HaydenLaw’s work, Frances Hayden was my first choice of an attorney when I recently applied for an O-1 visa. She, Taleen DeArcangelis, and their entire team were quick, thorough, and professional as they shepherded my case through the U.S. immigration system.

The happy ending is that I now have a work permit that allows me to perform in America. The bonus is that the people at the heart of HaydenLaw are not just legal eagles to me—through this positive experience they’ve also become friends.”

“My application for permanent resident was approved this morning…We both want to thank you again for your help. Every person we know who had to go through that process had told us it was the hardest and most painful thing they every had to do. It took more than a year for most of them. But Nicole and I agreed that since we moved to LA, the permanent resident application was probably one of the easiest things we had to go through, despite the heavy load of paperwork. You made the process very clear and stress free and made it sound simple, which was obviously a huge help.

It was actually easier to get a green card for me in the US than to get a 1-year student visa for Nicole in France. And that was a really big surprise for me!…Thank you again so much. Merci.”

“When I was cast in the romantic comedy “Oy Vey, My Son Is Gay” in 2009, I needed fast and reliable help with completing my O1 visa application. I remember we were only weeks away from shooting the feature and getting work papers for the United States was imperative for being able to act in this film.

It is because of the fast, honest and precise work of Frances Hayden and Taleen DeArcangelis that I got my visa in no time and was able to work on that production. They even worked on weekends to get my application done in time.

A big “Thank You!” to everyone in this office, it is because of their fantastic work and truthful advice that I could be part of this wonderful movie. Up to this day, “Oy Vey” has won more than 20 international movie awards and started off my career in my new home–the United States of America.”

“My experience with Hayden attorneys at law was amazing from the very first meeting I held with Frances Hayden and her excellent staff. They were confident and made me feel very positive toward the final goal as we embarked on a journey that lasted far less than I was expecting when I received the approval notice.

Thanks to the flawless work at HaydenLaw I am a step closer to my dream here in Hollywood and I will always be thankful toward them, as I know they have helped me open the first door, the golden ticket for a foreign actor, the O1 Visa.”

“I wanted to send you a quick note to let you know how much we appreciate the effort you and your staff put in on our cases. Both Mahesh and I were able to have a worry-free time in India and were able to truly enjoy our wedding since we had finished the stamping process.

We have each worked with you and your team twice now and you have not disappointed us. What I like most about your team is that they are very proactive. In my experience with other attorneys I have always had to be very careful and constantly follow up to make sure our papers were being taken care of in time. However at your office I found that your staff was always one step ahead of me and made sure that they had all their t’s crossed and i’s dotted. I never had to wonder if they were actually working on our case.

Thank you once again to everyone there.”

“The experience of dealing with Frances cannot be described in one word or in one paragraph. It’s been 18 months since I dealt with her and till now I am enjoying the benefits of her sincere guidance.


For other attorneys, the relationship is over once the job is done but this is certainly not the case with Frances. The beauty of dealing with Frances is that her relation with the clients actually starts once she has finished the job gracefully.


I had so many questions even after my H1 visa was stamped, but she never hesitated to answer any question and she is just an email away from her clients. Most of all she has first hand knowledge of her field and knows what she is doing. She really infuses that confidence in her clients to an extent that they don’t hesitate, even in front of U.S. Immigration.



Today I am living happily in U.S. I am well-settled in my life and all the credit goes to my Frances. Here is a picture of my marriage with my wife which took place in India.”

“I thought I would put my verbal thank you in writing but find myself struggling with the question of where do I begin? What you have done for me (i.e. helping me get an R-1 visa given the circumstances) is priceless.

I mean, there you were standing by me, vouchsafing for me against all odds. That meant a lot to me, and needless to say, it was a defining moment for me and certainly an unforgettable one. No one can put a price tag on that–it’s priceless. Overwhelmed is an understatement but it’s the closest word that I can find to describe how I felt and am still feeling now.

I know you see your job as a profession, but I see it as a calling. God has called you to serve him in that capacity, as an immigration lawyer helping his people. May his rich blessings continue to remain and abide with you as you continue serving him in that corner of his vineyard. Sorry, I didn’t mean to sound so preachy, but I can’t help it since I am a pastor.

Once again, thank you for being a lifesaver.”
