I couldn’t be more pleased with the assistance I received from Schlun & Elseven. Over the past 18 months they helped me obtain first a Blaue Karte and then later a Niederlassungserlaubnis, making the process smooth and predictable. All communication was friendly, timely, and stress-free. I wholeheartedly recommend them for any immigration legal needs.

Daniel Schewior and his team were able to successfully guide me and two other family members through the complexities of acquiring dual citizenship. Always cheery, communicative, resourceful and thoughtful, neither the pandemic nor the vagaries of the Germany's Federal Office of Administration deterred Daniel and his colleagues at S&E. We are all delighted with the outcome. Would very much recommend.Daniel Schewior und sein Team konnten mich und zwei weitere Familienmitglieder erfolgreich durch die Komplexität des Erwerbs der doppelten Staatsbürgerschaft führen. Stets gut gelaunt, kommunikativ, einfallsreich und gewissenhaft, weder die Pandemie noch die Besonderheiten der BVA schreckten Daniel und seine S&E Kollegen ab. Wir sind alle sehr zufrieden mit dem Ergebnis. Würde diese Firma sehr empfehlen.

My journey to becoming a resident has been a very stressful one from the beginning. Daniel laid out every option(solution) for us and helped us with every step. Although I must admit I haven't been patient enough, and Daniel is neither a good communicator BUT, he always makes sure he gets things done and on point at the same time according to my request despite a time-constrained. Without hesitation, Daniel is a lawyer to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer that works smartly for their clients. If I have to recommend a lawyer to anyone, Daniel Schewioris the right call. :)

In a very difficult situation, at a very sensitive time, this law firm, and Dr. Bichat in particular, helped me build a defense against unlawful dismissal. Although this was a simple employment dispute, each agent I spoke with from these offices treated me with not only the professionalism and integrity you should expect from your legal practice, but also the compassion I needed to confidently resolve the dispute on my own. Dealing with Schlun & Elseven Lawyers felt like having a lawyer friend I could call in an emergency, something unfortunately everyone needs from time to time. I recommend their services as a first stop in a crisis, not just as a last resort.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Kanzlei Schlun & Elseven . Considering, distance and language as my German is very limited, the communication, promptness, efficiency and professionalism were exemplary from all staff I dealt with from the first communication to the end.As far as I was concerned this was a difficult case as it involved family. Dr Thomas Bichat was very supportive with a very approachable attitude which I found pleasing as it made it easier to deal with especially as it was a sensitive family issue. He explained everything clearly, answered all questions, which eased my concerns.The case was promptly dealt with and completed in a very short timescale.I definitely would have no hesitation in recommending Dr Thomas Bichatand this company.

I had a fantastic experience with my lawyer Nicole Eggert on a a very important case. Nicole was the ultimate professional: responsive, knowledgeable, and on top of things 100% of the time. Top lawyer and a top firm that helped me get everything sorted for my family just when I was starting to lose hope. Thank you again so much, Nicole!

I had a consultation with Mr. Schewior regarding dual citizenship and my application for the "Beibehaltungsgenehmigung". Mr. Schewior was very patient and honed in exactly on my personal situation. He gave me excellent advice and made me aware of possible future changes in the law. Mr. Schewior also consulted with a colleague as my situation spanned other legal aspects in addition to immigration law. I was very pleased with the consultation and would recommend Mr. Schewior and Schlun & Elseven for immigration matters, especially when not resident in Germany.

Lawyer Daniel Schewior has cleared the path of foreigners marrying in Germany as well as addressed the topic of employment and immigration. The three topics, Marriage, employment requirements and immigration for foreigners do blend together in areas and Mr. Daniel on every subject gave prompt and clear advice on every questions and subject. The journey is just beginning and we look forward to working with him and this organization to make the journey and the steps clear. Mr Daniel thank you.

I had my initial consultation with lawyer Daniel Schewior on 09/29/21 via Zoom video, and I was genuinely impressed. The purpose of the consultation was to discuss the requirements/process of obtaining a student resident permit to Germany for a family member. I had very specific questions as I had done some research prior to the call, and Daniel was able to answer all my questions and explain what immigration law requires as it relates to the application. I did not feel rushed at all and felt very well informed by the end of call. I was most impressed by Daniel’s customer service and knowledge. I absolutely recommend him!

Daniel Schewior was the attorney representing me at Schlun & Elseven when I approached the firm about an immigration/naturalization matter.

Their fees are very reasonable and I would recommend this firm to anyone looking to be represented by a lawyer with the highest integrity.

I reached out to S&E Legal for a consultation regarding residence permits for U.S citizens. I had my meeting with Daniel Schewior, who was very professional, friendly and knowledgable. He provided us with clear and concise answers. Prices are reasonable and completely worth it when trying to navigate the complicated German immigration system.

WE WON! Mr. Samir Muratovic, thanks to you and your team a long and emotionally draining battle with the foreign office has finally come to an end. We are deeply grateful for both your legal expertise and support over the past 6 months.My wife and I lived in the United States for 15 years, and then decided to return to Germany to be closer to her family. Despite having previously held permanent residency in Germany for decades, we were bluntly told upon our return that we were no longer welcome in the country. At that point we contacted Mr. Muratovic who quickly assessed our situation and began a process that has resulted in the foreign office having to acknowledge our legal right to permanent residency. We could not have succeeded without him!

Navigating residence & immigration issues can be stressful. You need a lawyer who knows the law, understands your situation and has your best interests in mind. For this I highly recommend Nicole Eggert.

Schlun & Elseven has by far the most competent immigration attorneys out there in Germany. I spoke to them on the phone and on emails and their answers were always very thorough and very professional with a personal touch as well. Mr. Aykut and his team members that I came across had a honest interest in guiding me the right way which as we all know these days we don't see much, especially from lawyers. He was always there to answer any of our questions or concerns we had. Hope this review helps anyone looking for genuine representation for their civil and criminal defense needs. All the best.

I had an awesome experience working with this law firm specifically with Samir Muratovic! I had some immigration issues with getting my girlfriend a VISA to come visit me in Germany. Samir was able to get everything ironed out and in the end my girlfriend finally was approved for her VISA and is with me in Germany right now. Thank you Samir, and to all of you at Schlun & Elseven!
