I’m very grateful for Mr. Sris work to get my alimony payment ended. I retired recently and I could not afford making the payments. Mr. Sris hard work and skills provided me with the results I needed. I’m very grateful to all his staff for their promptly responses to all my inquiries. I will recommend Mr. Sris law office to anybody that is struggling with divorce. I wish I would met him sooner.
Mr. Sris was amazing and did an exceptional job representing me in Fairfax Court. He was fully prepared for court, and very pleased with how he presented the case, and with the outcome. Mr Sris and his team were always available throughout the process. Highly recommend!

Excellent job!!! Mr. Sris and his team were amazing!!! They were very professional and did a wonderful job of preparing everything for my wife and I. Mr. Sris’s ability to navigate the system and his knowledge of law prevented the government from splitting up our family. Most people are stuck in immigration court for years, we received a ruling from the judge very quickly in our favor. I am extremely grateful for everything they did. I am so happy we chose them to help us fight for our family. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a no non-sense, diligent, strong and well versed legal team. Note: This is not our first case using this team. This is in fact our 3rd time using the SRIS Law Group and all three had stellar outcomes!

Mr. SRIS was instrumental in reducing my reckless driving charge. The prosecutor dropped it down to 74/55, but for Mr. SRIS that wasn’t enough, he kept fighting for me and got it reduced to defective equipment which resulted in 0 points on my license. An absolutely amazing lawyer who I would 100% use again, and definitely suggest to friends, family and colleagues. Him and his assistant also utilized excellent communication during the entire time leading up to the court date, keeping me well informed and giving me as many recommendations as possible.

I chose to go with Sris Law Group to represent me for my child visitation case. There were a lot of complications with the case and several hurdles that we had to deal with, but the attorneys experience and ability to handle my case was phenomenal. The firm employs a staff that is courteous and helpful. In addition, the communication was prompt. I really liked that they were up front about what to expect and did not provide false expectations. The trial went well and I am happy that they were able to represent me. I definitely will go with them again if I have another issue arise.

One of the best law firms in northern VA! This group of attorneys is very professional and honest. The SRIS Law Group represented me in a case in which other attorneys gave me no hope and I must say after the case was over I couldn’t thank them enough for their hard work to get me a great deal. I refer family members and friends with great confidence that they will be treated well and will get the best result possible. I have finally found a group of attorneys that are trustworthy and will represent me when in need. If you need an attorney don’t waste your time and contact the SRIS Law Group. (((HIGHLY RECOMMEND)))

Two words! Simply Amazing!!!! I had one of my best experiences working with SRIS. I have worked with different lawyers for my employment and family related visas. But working with SRIS for a Family Visa has been a total new experience. They were very professional with their work. All I had to do was talk on the phone. They sent me the list of the documents needed and when i scanned and sent them, the paper work was all ready. I would totally recommend them for anyone especially for their family visas….
