“I contacted the team at EB5 Diligence when we were under a time deadline to file an EB-5 petition. They spent the time to review various investment options one of which was eventually selected by our client. This process allowed me and my co-counsel to focus on the legal issues relating to the EB-5 process while EB5 Diligence was advising the client on project selection. I found Kurt and his team to be highly professional and responsive to our needs and have no hesitation in recommending them to others.”
