“Professional, informed, excellent communicator, encouraging. Great combination in an attorney. I highly recommend Sheryl Goldberg. I feel fortunate being her client. She and her colleague Sander Groen were extremely helpful to me. I am happy to recommend them both.” Rapaport — Dutch American Friendship Treaty
"When some year's ago my partner and future husband had problems to get a residence and working permit for the Netherlands, I started calling immigration lawyers around. After speaking on the phone with several of them, I talked to Mr. Sander Groen from Kroes Advocaten. After that talk I knew that he had the right knowledge and attitude to help us. The process took long time and there were some sudden turns along the way, but he was able to support us through them. We are even so grateful both for the help of the technicalities of the application and the support we got when the situation did not look good. At the time of complications he was reachable beyond the office hours and able to remind us that whatever we were told, we had a right legal basis for our application. I personally valued his mental coaching and in the end everything went smoothly with IND". Siri Siltasalmi — Residency based upon EU law
“I had faced a legal issue regarding my residence permit renewal. Jelle was extremely helpful throughout the process and guided me really well. He made all communications with IND himself along with informing me at the same time about what was happening. In the end, all the issues got resolved and we had a positive response from IND.” Madhuparna Dhar — Highly Skilled Migrant
“Mrs. Sheryl Goldberg is a true expert in immigration law and she has provided absolute support in my DAFT application. I highly recommend her!“ Kassumzade — Dutch American Friendship Treaty
"We came to Kroes Advocaten office with almost no hope for success. My case was very complicated mostly because of many intricate factors affecting the situation. All previous lawyers we contacted either simply refused to help me referring to impossibility to win the case or proposed some shady ways full of risks. Pieter Krop is a real professional. He is a lawyer who does not take unnecessary risks and would never recommend you anything without having a confidence in a successful outcome. After 5 minutes of our conversation he already knew a way out from my curvy and twisted situation! It signifies his high knowledge of the law. Not only Pieter based his solution on his personal extensive knowledge and juridical experience, but also he asked for a second opinion of one of his colleagues in order to minimize the risks. And only after that he came back to us with the final solution. It refers to a high professionalism of Pieter. The rest went very fast. Within one day Pieter prepared a well justified objection to IND. I had no need to do anything myself! No more stressful calls to IND and unwanted emotions. All the communication with IND was carried out by Pieter. In case of any questions, he responded me within minutes in a very friendly and professional form. I have honestly got an impression that he does care about his customers and understands our worries. Finally, our objection was found grounded and we won the case. I think I do not need to add anything else here. Just one more thing, Pieter has definitely deserved my personal respect." Alexander Belov — Highly Skilled Migrant
"I worked with Kroes Advocaten when I lived in Amsterdam in 2010 and upon returning this past year, used them again to get my entrepreneur's permit. The team moved quickly, answered my questions promptly, offered thoughtful advice to my often far-ranging questions and helped me become an entrepreneur within weeks. I would recommend them to any expat looking to work in Amsterdam." Catherine Smith — Dutch American Friendship Treaty
"Sander Groen has made it possible for me to make my very complicated dream to work and reside in Holland possible! He is always available for any stress with the Immigration and Naturalisation Service (IND) and he is very knowledgeable of all the ins and outs of the Dutch Immigration law. I recommend him to any of my friends." Yehia Fahmi — Highly Skilled Migrant
"Pieter Krop and the team at Kroes Advocaten were extremely easy to work with and helped us successfully apply for and receive our visas. All of our interactions was friendly and efficient, and we were very pleased with a positive outcome". Scott Smith — Dutch American Friendship Treaty
"Fantastic, you guys have been absolutely amazing at helping me out with this return visa. Got back to me much quicker than I expected! Really appreciate the work done for me.” Dennis Lau — Highly Skilled Migrant
"We were living in Hawaii near the end of our careers when we fell in love with Amsterdam and decided we wanted to move here. For our friends, the question was, "Why?" but for us it was, "How?". At first immigration looked impossible, but then we learned of the Dutch American Friendship Treaty and discovered Kroes Advocaten. We're pretty sure our immigration situation was unique, but Sheryl Goldberg put us completely at ease with her knowledge of the Treaty and the necessary steps to make our relocation a reality. Following her guidance, we put together the required paperwork as we prepared for the move, and within two weeks of arriving in Amsterdam we had met with city and immigration officials, we were official Amsterdam residents, and we were on the way to receiving residence permits. Several years have passed and Sheryl continues to guide us with renewals and other immigration-related help. The quality of our life in Amsterdam has exceeded our wildest dreams, and Sheryl and Kroes Advocaten made our move here so much easier that it might have been." Harrison and Sharene Klein — Dutch American Friendship Treaty
