- EvelynNelson Madrid is the best immigration lawyer in the US! Worth every penny!!! He is knowledgeable, patient, and explains the entire process to become a citizen, even possible negative scenarios. everything! We were well informed. Well, my husband just got his Oath Ceremony notification, and he is on his way to becoming a Citizen of the USA!!! Amazing! Thank you, Nelson!!!
The level of professionalism and talent of this firm is out of this world. My parents and I had been to numerous lawyers in the past and weren't able to get the results we had been promised. We were referred by family to seek the counsel of Attorney Nelson Madrid and from our first visit he reignited hope back in me and most importantly in my parents. Due to his years of practice, extensive knowledge and full transparency, he was able to get my Dad what he so longed for - his green card. I strongly recommend working with this law firm and especially Nelson Madrid. Many thanks again!- Jossie
