Client Reviews
★★★★★
I was amazed by how supportive the experience was. They took the time to explain every step of the process, what was needed, and how they were going to accomplish it. They didn't just tell me what to do, they explained the process and gave me options. I was never left in the dark, which made the whole experience very low stress. E.S.

Joe represented me on an asylum case in San Francisco. They day I met him he took out a business card and wrote his personal cell phone number on the back. He told me to feel free to call or text any time I wanted to. I tried it and he wasn't kidding. That sort of concierge style lawyering was a real joy. S.K.
★★★★★
Right after the repeal of DOMA, Joe represented me and my partner on one of Pennsylvania's first immigration cases based on same sex marriage. It was new at the time, and we weren't really sure it would work, Joe reassured us and explained how and why I had the right to file for a green card for my partner - and he made every word he told me come true. The green card was issued about 5 months later. M.M.
