“After trying to figure out this immigration process for the past 4 years and meeting with several lawyers, I finally met Erick Widman. He was recommended to me by one of his colleagues from Seattle and after a 10 minute free consultation, we met up for a one hour session so we can share all the details of my situation and to try to find a solution to my problems.

He listened to me, asked me questions and in the end he explained multiple options to choose from and we explored every single one in detail. He showed me pros and cons and explained very clearly what everything meant, giving me a lot of resources to choose from. He is very calm and has the patience of a wise teacher to walk you through everything.

In the end I left with a very clear understanding about my options, clarity that i was looking for for so long. Thank you Erick for explaining everything so clearly.”


“Erick was so helpful! I am so glad that I worked with Widman Immigration Law Group LLC [now Passage Immigration Law]. I wasn’t sure if I needed help with applying for a K-1 visa, but I was worried about making small errors that would have prolonged the process. Erick was so great! We had a few Skype calls, and an in office meeting to go over the details of the application to make sure it was in order. It was so nice to submit the application with confidence.

Erick was very responsive to emails and answered all my questions, making it a smooth and stress free experience. Overall great experience! I would highly recommend it to all any anyone going through any immigration/visa related process. No matter how small, it is still great to get a professional opinion.

Thanks Erick!”


“Erick did an awesome job..he is every penny worth! We are German and not accustomed to waiting or to be late. He is always punctual, reliable and reachable (if not, he’ll call you right back!) All the work with him was uncomplicated and easy. Bottom line: My Green card is approved and on the way in my hands!”


“I am now a green card holder thanks to the help of Erick who made this process as easy as possible. Definitely recommend him :)”


“I recently met with Erick Widman and was extremely impressed! I chose him because he came highly recommended from another lawyer and I appreciated his free 10 minute phone consultation. Not only was he very knowledgeable about the immigration laws and various options but answered all my questions. If I need to use a lawyer again in the future, I would not hesitate to call him up.”


“Thanks to Widman Immigration Law Group [now Passage Immigration Law] I can pursue my dreams much further than I could with just an EAD card. Great service and support, very friendly and reliable. Thanks Erick Widman!”


“I went through the disheartening process of being denied for a B-2 visa. I was referred to Erick by another attorney, and Erick has lifted a heavy burden from my shoulders by assisting me with a new approach with the Embassy. Thank you so much Erick!”


“I found Mr. Widman to be extremely knowledgeable and he answered all questions in a clear and easy to understand manner. In both our meeting and in the well laid out follow-up email he sent, Erick provided detailed information about options and the steps to take. This included links to all necessary documentation. Erick also discussed ways and costs on how to go through the process by oneself, with some help from his office, or how he can do it all.

Erick was very professional, patient, calm and most importantly – sincere. I highly recommend Widman Immigration [now Passage Immigration Law] to anyone who is unsure about their status or who needs help in fulfilling the necessary requirements and documentation. The laws can be confusing and there is nothing better than the peace of mind of knowing you are doing it right.”


“Erick is not only absolutely professional, but also cares about his client. Even though I only had some easy questions that needed clarification, he handled my case as I was one of his most serious clients. The system of a 10 minute free phone call works perfectly, and it is a unique service that proved to be very helpful. The price of the consultation is very much acceptable, and the service is of an excellent quality. I definitely recommend him.”


“I have multiple friends who are continuing to work their way through the labyrinth of the immigration process. One has been successful but it took nearly $90000 and 14 years. Another is in her 8th year. Another has given up and is immigrating with his foreign wife of three years to Australia where they are welcomed. Myself and my wife of 6 months moved through the K-1 process in 1 year and 2 weeks. The guidance and encouragement and creation of the proper and correct forms in a timely manner by Erick Widman was instrumental in our process. Our social security cards arrived in the mail today. Wow, what a process. Thank you Erick.”


“Erick is one of the best lawyer I have met. He handled my case in a professional way and also he treated me like family. Erick made the communication very easy via email or by phone, and he also was quick. I highly recommend him to everyone if you’re looking for professional lawyer! Thanks Erick!!”


“Erick from Widman Immigration Law Group [now Passage Immigration Law] handled my case for a change of visa status after my wife (who is from the US) and I got married. He was extremely professional and accommodating from the very first phone call and took plenty of time to explain each step of the (painstaking) process to us.

Erick guided us through the process each step of the way, keeping in regular contact and letting us know what was required from us and by when. He walked us through what to expect during the interview which helped put us at ease on the day.

I would highly recommend Erick for someone considering going through the immigration process. His knowledge and expertise are invaluable and totally worth it. I am now a happy Green Card holder. ”


Extremely satisfying experience. Excellent service and support from start to finish. Erick and team are detail oriented and cover all the aspects of the petition. thanks.


Wonderful experience!!! Erick and his team are super communicative, thorough, and efficient. My husband and I give four thumbs up and would recommend Passage Immigration Law to anyone seeking advice and assistance with their immigration process.


When I first met with Erick I was close to giving up. Everywhere I searched it seemed complicated and expensive to be granted a green card. So when my wife and i sat down and talked to Erick I had a different feeling that I had not felt with any other immigration lawyer I had met with before. I felt cared for and more than just a dollar sign. He and Garmai, one of his assistants, were great throughout this last 2 years. My process started in 2016 and finally on February 2018 I was granted my green card. We had ups and downs due to the changes in immigration laws, but Erick and his team helped us out throughout. His guidance and expertise were amazing. Anyone that is looking for any advice or immigration representation I will definitely be recommending Erick and his firm. Thank you for all you did to get me where I’m at.


Incredibly diligent, knowledgeable, and thorough. Used their services for my wife’s immigration and they were very considerate helping us every step of the way. Highly recommend!


My fiance and I had an excellent experience working with Passage Immigration Law. Erick was extremely helpful and was available for all our questions. We were applying for a fiance visa and had a rather complicated situation, but we consulted with Passage (both consultations over Skype as well as a review of our application) and successfully got the visa! We are so glad we chose to work with them – they are all super nice, professional, and knowledgeable!


Erick and Garmai truly are a superteam. I felt very at ease and comforted by their knowledge and especially by Erick’s expertise and excellent case history. Passage Law was the warm, friendly welcome we needed during an otherwise uncertain time in our lives. I am so grateful for their help and support and feel that my husband paying for Erick’s full service option was completely validated. I would recommend Passage Law to anyone. Thank you both!


I thoroughly recommend Erick. His team is professional and work efficiently in getting paperwork filed. What I especially liked is that they work with you in a collaborative manner which, for instance, helped in getting minor errors while form-filling resolved quickly. For standard cases, they have predefined processes and use a series of shared documents to methodically collect information. His assistant, Garmai, deserves praise for her prompt and timely email communication. I didn’t have major issues in my case but I felt confident having Erick’s counsel throughout the process. Overall, an excellent experience!

I reached out to Passage Immigration for assistance with my naturalization application. Mr. Widman and his team were terrific throughout the entire process. They answered all my questions and the process they have in place to collect the information needed for the application was simple and more importantly well organized. I was also very impressed with their professionalism. I was not pressured into procuring additional services and Mr. Wideman was upfront about how the entire process would go. I highly recommend this law firm


When my wife and I decided to get married, I knew that the immigration process was going to be complicated and time consuming. I had read stories about it taking years for couples to receive their Visa and how mistakes in filing could lead to a denial and/or prolonged process. This was one of my biggest worries as I knew very little about the immigration process and the pitfalls that could lead to our Visa being denied. Throughout the process I gained complete trust in the expertise of Erick and Garmai. Garmai, the Paralegal of Erick, was extremely responsive to our questions and simplified the entire process for us. One thing that I loved about Erick and Garmai was that they kept us informed throughout the immigration process. I initially obtained their services for the K-1 Visa. Given the service and expertise I received, I didn’t hesitate to retain them for my wife’s change of status into a permanent resident. I cannot say enough positive things about Erick and Garmai. The immigration process took less time than I had expected and the expertise and peace of mind they provided to my wife and I was invaluable. I highly recommend the team of Erick and Garmai to anyone looking for help with immigration. Thank you Erick and Garmai! Jack and Chloe


Erick, Garmai, and Erin are all absolutely WONDERFUL people. They listen and are genuinely interested in the people they are representing. Their patience and assistance with my case was phenomenal and the result was a positive one — I received my green card!! I don’t think there can be a more knowledgeable, caring, and helpful law group. Truly, truly brilliant people!!


Erin is AWESOME! My Wife met with Erin to review our Adjustment of Status and Employment Authorization documentation. She was incredibly helpful in verifying our documents, simplifying the process and was very quick to respond to additional questions. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this team to anyone who is in need of legal guidance. Thanks Passage team!


I had a wonderful experience dealing with Eric Widman. Immigration law can be complex and confusing. Mr. Widman is experienced, knowledgeable and most importantly, up to date with the lastest laws and regulations. Before locating Widman Immigration Law, I retained another “expert” attorney, I was a mere number with dollars signs attached. I have experienced immigration attorneys first hand and can speak with confidence, Widman’ firm is A plus. From the very moment I reached out to Widman law, his assistant was friendly, sincerely helpful, she even took the time to get answers to my questions and phoned me back. I never felt rushed or overlooked as we dealt with Eric. He was so upfront, informing us on what we could do ourselves to save on legal fees. I would highly recommend Widman Immigration Law forany one dealing with an immigration issues. These issues can last months to years, you will be happy to have Eric Widman on your side.


Erin is an excellent attorney – highly recommended. My problem was resolved in a fast, efficient, and professional manner and the rates were reasonable.


I’ve lived in India almost all my life, and my partner is a lifelong Portlander. We’ve been together for 6 years, and yet, thanks to strict laws in the US and India, we’ve spent barely 2 years (combined) in the same place. We’ve had more than our fair share of heartache, separation and financial hardship. And Erick saved our relationship. I should have written this review many months ago. A few years ago, I first interacted with Erick over Skype. Despite being on the other side of the world, his friendly demeanor and strong expertise of the ins and outs of immigration gave me full confidence that I was speaking with the right person. You’ll see many reviews here stating how accessible Mr. Widman is. I can second that. Over these many years, Erick has consistently been prompt, helpful and informative. He packed so much into each interaction that I never felt the need to schedule a call longer than 15 minutes. Which isn’t to say that our meetings were brief! Being Indian (haha!), I frequently stretched our calls to 25 minutes or longer. Erick never rushed them; he never made me feel that he was too busy to answer my many questions, or that he had other clients to attend to, or that I should be paying more for the extra time (which I would have). If his courtesy, soft skills and promptness were all that mattered, I would still have given a 5-star rating. But there’s more – so much more! Erick gave timely and insightful advice that saved me (and my partner) from many pitfalls. The immigration process can be excruciatingly long, complicated and intimidating. Erick’s advice was always spot-on! Without his support and expertise, I probably would not have been approved to live and work in the US. Like I said, he saved our relationship. In spite of the fact that I am now living in the same city, I still haven’t met Erick in real life (shame on me!). And yet, I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Given the realities of immigration, it’s a pity that more lawyers are not as accessible via Skype or email as Mr. Widman is. I hit the jackpot when I first reached out to him! The path to immigration is long and expensive, and at times, feels more like being trapped in a maze. I hope that my successful experience helps you choose the right guide for your journey!


Eric and his team are very knowledgeable in providing immigration related service. I reached Eric with lot of uncertainty regarding my immigration, he was able to address those questions and helped me in making my immigration process easy and fast ( without RFE ). Before reaching Eric I spoke to other immigration firm, all of them take days or weeks to reply for queries but with Widman immigration their response time to queries is within few hours. Especially Garmai is really quick in replying . I highly recommend this immigration firm.


We were in a situation where an Immigration Lawyer was required. We consulted with 2 different Immigration lawyer firms locally, which would NOT accept our case. We were then referred to Widman Immigration Law Firm and scheduled a consultation with outstanding results of Erick ACCEPTING our case. With the help of Garmai and Erick’s professional immigration knowledge, all our feelings of negativity turned positive throughout the lengthy process. They helped us gather all the required documentation needed to make the process as smooth as possible when submitting the required applications to USCIS. We have the utmost respect for Erick and Garmai for not only the Law Firm but for also being understanding, warm, and kind hearted. We will use this law firm again in the future and highly recommend Widman Immigration Law Firm as the #1 Immigration Law Firm in the Pacific Northwest.


My wife and I had an excellent experience with Widman Immigration. Erick and Garmai were prompt, straightforward and honest, and transparent in all our communications, and I don’t know how we would have navigated the challenging immigration process without them. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them, and would use them again in a heart beat.


I am only 21, applying for my green card was very scary. Me and my husband couldn’t afford to hire a lawyer. But josh found him online and saw the consultation was only 200$. When we came in he explained the whole process and told us the 200$ would be included with the whole thing which we thought was very nice. Eric and his legal assistant Germai were amazing to us, so nice, warm inviting people. I felt at ease talking and discussing the process with them. They were there every step of the way. We had a problem with my travel visa and they were on top of it and I got it about one week later, which was a great relief. I emailed them all the time, sometimes 5 messages in a row of questions after questions. They answered them all right away and we’re again so nice about it. Eric prepared us for the interview and the way he talked about it made it seem so easy, I hardly believed him. But he prepared us so well that it was that easy. I was happily surprised. But the best part was that if we went anywhere else I feel that we could not have afforded it but their price was perfect for us. I have never been so greatfull in my whole life than to these two people. Thank you so much!


He and his assistant made everything easy for us. He offered an outstanding service! I strongly recommend him! Thank you Erick and garmai. Couldn’t have made our experience easier!


Erick and Garmai are a very professional team. Both my Wife and I thought the communication and knowledge was unequalled along with a warm personality which made our successful application pain free! Thanks guys.


I highly recommend Erick and his team for immigration services. Erick is very knowledgeable about immigration laws, processes, paperwork and fees. He sets realistic expectations of case timelines u0026amp; accurate information of what to expect in interviews u0026amp; other appointments with USCIS. Erick and Garmai leverage technology in an efficient way for sharing documents and are very quick to respond to questions. Their attention to detail is impressive and their #1 focus is customer service.

Erik and Garmai helped us out a lot, they made us feel confident and supported during a very long and stressful process. Once they begin helping us everything went smoothly. Highly recommended!


I HIGHLY recommend Widman Immigration Law Firm!! Erick was amazing and was extremely helpful and knowledgeable about the immigration process.

I could not recommend Mr. Widman highly enough!!! Also, Garmai, his legal assistant was wonderful. Extremely knowledgeable, kind and professional!


The most efficient, friendly, caring and pleasingly different law firm. Erick and his team took our case from an online request to actualization in record time. The experience, professionalism, and results were beyond exceptional . Widman Immigration Law Group LLC is highly recommended and I give them 10 stars.
