    “She is the best attorney in the United States for immigration matters.”

    Valentin Giraldo Arias

    I am very satisfied with the work of the immigration attorney. It was an unforgettable experience. The staff was very kind. And the lawyer nothing to say, she is a very good person and fast because she didn’t take long to get me out of detention. So, if you have problems or pending cases with immigration, she is the person who can help you and with a reasonable price.

    Having attorney Johanna Kelley by my side was a blessing for me. She told me that we were going all the way and that she was always going to be there for me. She is very professional and efficient. Besides being a lawyer she is a friend and a very good person. She doesn’t put buts on anything and always goes all the way with you.

    No one has any idea how happy I feel today. It is the best thing that has happened to me. I will be able to be with my son here in the United States. I am no longer afraid of being deported, of raids… of being separated from my son.

    The truth is that I am very grateful to the lawyer and all her team. I thank them with all my heart. They never left me alone.
