My visa situation was very critical. When I reached out to her, she not only accommodated me in short time but also efficiently worked throughout the process. She was very helpful

I came to Annette with after finding myself in a position of employment I was extremely dissatisfied with. My understanding of things given my visa situation was that it would be difficult or impossible to leave, with the only recourse being to follow through until the end of my contract.

Annette listened patiently and offered suggestions about what to do. We spoke to her a number of times, racking up perhaps over 2 hours of consultation time before she even asked to be placed on retainer so she could officially work on my behalf. She knew much more than the attorneys of a group that was offering to hire me – my case was very unique and difficult, and the other attorneys didn’t really know where to begin.

Annette was extremely thorough and took great pains to make sure everything was in place before turning in the paperwork to make things happen. It was almost anticlimactic when we got the green light from immigrations with no questions asked.

I continued to correspond with Annette even after we got the result we hoped for, for little things that she really didn’t have to be involved in.

You will not regret hiring Annette. She knows exactly what she is doing and will fight for you like family. Her default demeanor is realistic optimism, and will give you options when you might feel there is little or no hope. She will spend so much time with you on the phone that you’ll start wondering if she has time to do anything else after your conversation. I intend to stay in touch with Annette long after my business with her is done. I cannot recommend her highly enough.

I can’t explain how grateful I am with Annette and her team. They are very professional and will devote their time to their clients. I had a great experience, and a fantastic outcome…just got the big news my H1B has been approved! They made me feel confident and were always there to help with any issue or questions I had. I would certainly recommend them

Awesome, really down to earth, was able to clarify all my doubts very clearly, does not mind to spend the extra time with the client, very professional.


I am a resident physician on my second year of H1B visa. I was looking for an abbreviated legal consultation on what may be the best way for me to apply for green card. A friend of mine told me about how amazing Annette was and shared with me her contact information. I emailed her office and I got an immediate response with a complimentary phone call appointment with Annette. Annette reviewed my CV and provided sincere, thorough suggestions on different ways to apply green card, and we extensively discussed the timeline of it, the strategy to establish good relationship with my potential sponsors, approximate cost of application, etc. She took time to answer all questions empathetically. I will remember her and reach back when it is time for me to really prepare for my green card application.


Annette Brigsted has been trustworthy, knowledgeable and valuable for our case. She was responsive to all our questions and concerns and we felt that we had an excellent representative to guide us through the legal system for the issuance of our Green Cards. I would gladly recommend her without any reservations.


I have been in this country for more than 15 years. Throughout my immigration ordeal, I dealt with a hand full of immigration attorneys in CT until I was blessed to have found Ms. Brigsted. She was always truthful, always responded to our inquiries and maintained us fully aware of our options and the progress of our case. After being turned down by other attorneys who were obviously not as knowledgeable as her, she managed to get us through this process successfully! I never thought the day would come when I obtained my permanent residence! I highly without a doubt recommend her!!!

If you are looking for a great attorney Annette Brigstead is the best person for the job, she has handled my immigration issues to work in the United States for the last 5 years. She is very professional, as well as replying back to e-mails and phone calls within the same day as they are sent. She also explains the issues at hand very well and is more than willing to call whom ever is involved to get the job done. I cannot express how thankful I am to have Annette in my corner.

I have known attorney Annette Brigsted for over a decade now. It all started with my work visa process for USA followed by my green card. To my experience she is one of the most wonderful professional I have ever interacted with. She is meticulous with her work and always honest with her opinion. Being an immigrant herself, she connects to my case seamlessly, as she has experienced both sides of this process. I am always sure that my case is in the best possible hands. I trust her with my work and I wholeheartedly recommend her to any person who value ‘trust’ more than anything. She proved to be more of a friend and a guide than just my immigration attorney.

Extremely Talented and Personable

As a hiring Manager, I do work with immigrants we employ. In many instances some type of immigration paperwork must be completed to comply with the law. Attorney Brigsted was highly recommended by a company that has many more immigrant employees than I do. Ms. Brigsted is the most competent and capable attorney I have ever had the pleasure of working with. She returns calls and emails promptly, and has made herself available even after “normal” working hours to discuss a difficult case. There is a reason why she has the reputation of being the best immigration attorney in the Northeast. She is able to resolve even the most demanding cases in a timely manner. Attorney Brigsted is an outstanding attorney that I highly recommend.
