Why Hire Us

According to US courts, immigration law is second only to tax law in terms of complexity. The majority of those who file for immigration benefits without being represented by an attorney are ultimately denied, because in this area of law, cases are rarely as simple or straight-forward as they seem. Having an experienced attorney on your side can provide you with the winning edge in this stressful and complex process.

At Maiorova Law Group, PLLC we work differently from other law firms. We call it The MLG Difference ™.


1. Excellence through experience.

We have over 35 years combined experience as US-licensed attorneys and have secured thousands of victories for our clients. Our work has been recognized with multiple awards, including 19 Best Immigration Lawyers in Orlando, 3 Best Immigration Attorneys in Orlando, and the prestigious AV Preeminent Rating (the highest possible rating for legal skills and ethics).

2. We speak your language.

From the very first consultation, we are committed to helping you understand the immigration process. Understanding the immigration process is difficult; understanding your lawyer shouldn’t be. The MLG Difference™ means that we communicate with our clients in plain-language terms they can understand, not in legalese.  Attorney Maiorova and our support staff are fully bi-lingual in English and Russian, so you can be certain that our communication with your Russian-speaking spouse, fiancé, or relative will be seamless and will not require an intermediary to translate.

3. Our cases are handled by lawyers, not paralegals.

We know that you came to us because you want an experienced and award-winning attorney, not a paralegal, to take the lead on your case. The MLG Difference™ means that we use paralegals and legal assistants sparingly, only to assist with document collection and other non-legal tasks. At MLG, lawyers, and only lawyers, develop case strategy, conduct legal research and draft legal arguments. You’re paying for a lawyer, and at MLG that’s exactly what you get.

4. We see your perspective.

Every member of our team, except Gerard Lazzara, is an immigrant to the United States from the former USSR. Gerard Lazzara’s grandparents were Italian immigrants. The MLG Difference™ means that we have been in your shoes and have personally experienced the US immigration process. We channel our empathy to do better work for you!
