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!

Nicole Eggert handled my case expertly and efficiently. I was extremely pleased with the detailed information I received on my initial consultation regarding a complex immigration case. I used Nicole a second time and she dealt with the authorities expertly and with a positive result. I am also very impressed with the speed at which Schlun & Elseven respond to a request and the short time to get a consultation. I was very satisfied with the entire experience including the cost.

Daniel Schewior was the attorney representing me at Schlun & Elseven when I approached the firm about an immigration/naturalization matter. He is very knowledgeable, professional, responsible and an absolute pleasure to work with. Their fees are very reasonable and I would recommend this firm to anyone looking to be represented by a lawyer with the highest integrity.

S&E agreed to take on a complicated immigration case and got a great outcome. Our lawyer Daniel Schewior was friendly, responsive and went the extra mile to help understand our case and come up with a legal strategy. Couldn't recommend enough!

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!

My family and I have had a productive and successful outcome with Schlun & Elseven.We decided to apply from the USA for a German temporary business visa. We had zero knowledge of German immigration law before we engaged Schlun & Elseven.After contacting dozens of attorneys, Schlun & Elseven was the only firm that was responsiveness from the start and possessed a keen knowledge of German immigration law. Mr. Elseven personally responded to my initial inquiry and helped us understand the options available to us.Daniel Schewior was the attorney at the firm who was our single point of contact. Daniel thoughtfully guided us through the complex immigration process. Daniel successfully overcame obstacles and secured our business visa. Daniel was responsive and always demonstrated patience responding to all of my questions (which I asked frequently!).I recommend Schlun & Elseven's immigration expertise and services.

Mr. Schewior provided excellent, prompt and valuable advice to me regarding employment law in Germany post-Brexit which has potentially salvaged an IT freelance contract that was in jeopardy. Thank you Mr. Schewior and the team at Schlun & Elseven Lawyers!

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!

I had the chance to be in contact with Mr Aykut Elseven through internet search for immigration issues in Germany. Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte and Mr Aykut were very professional, transparent, super responsive, pay attention to details and provided me with an amazing legal advice. During my contact with Mr Aykut, he showed professionalism, great practical experience for tough situations and great knowledge of law. I was really impressed. I find that Mr Aykut works with high ethics and fairness. I did not feel that it is about the money, but it was about what is the best for the situation and the client. I highly recommend Mr Aykut and Schlun & Elseven Rechtsanwälte law firm. They have all my respect.
