Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
