When I was looking around for an Immigration lawyer to help me out, a lot of friends who had used Joe highly recommended him so I took their advice and went with Joe and from start to finish he has been exemplary. He made a tricky process seem very straight forward, he is very thorough and makes the whole process easy to understand, he was in constant communication whenever I had any questions or queries and made everything very easy to understand. I would highly recommend using Joe and will definitely be recommending him to any friends that are looking at doing their residency.
