Michael Musa-Obregon is an outstanding lawyer, not to mention individual. He is extremely compasionate & patient with each and every client he consults with. I can say the same for each Associate in his firm, all locations. I will & do recommend Michael to all my family & friends!

I want to thank you Mr. Musa-Obregon for all the good work you did for me and my son. Even though it was a long hard road, you were able to get him out. And I thank you for giving us your cell phone- i know from experience that no lawyers do that for their clients. It was good to know that all i ever had to do was pick up the phone and you were there for us. I hope we didn't abuse this privilege lol - there were times i knew you were so busy. Thanks for being there for all of us! On behalf of Eric, my two sons and Erik's girlfriend we are deeply grateful. Keep up all the good work and helping people. We stuck with you and it was all worth it because you did what you said you would do.

I would never talk bad about anybody but Michael Musa is not professional. We hired him after searching in the computer (bad idea).After you give him the money he will never call you but if not his secretaries will ask you walk into the office to speak to you regarding the case wich is total crap. The reason is $$$. We payed him $6,000 to start and after a couple of months he asked us to give him more money and that way he would personally look into our case. How could he ? We stood with him for 3 court dates. Everytime we went to court a new person would show up and ask us about the case because they didnt have any knowledge about it. I thank god we hired another lawyer.Dont believe the good ratings im 100% sure its him or his secretaries writing all this crap in order to maintain their job. If you need a good lawyer search we hired Tom Kenniff and had excellent service from him and his firm. He beat our 3 felony case and we won.Our family is now in peace and happy to be together Thank You Tom. God bless you. Dont go to Michael or else you would be very unsatisfied and very worried.

I am so regretful of hiring this lawyer. He gives you a lot of false hope at his free consultation. You think you are hiring him for your case- but he passes your case on to several of his MANY associates...who i think wrote most of these "great 5 star reviews" because this guy is far from "5 star". I think he advertises his name a lot but doesnt follow through with the work. Every search on immigration lawyer his name was the first to pop up. I am not happy with the documents submitted which he had his "associates" prepare and then they have to get his approval before it is sent out. I could have probably written a better document to be submitted- He is also impossible to reach. You can get in touch with the associate, but to actually speak to him is impossible as he never answers or calls you back. I spoke to him when i met with him for the consultation- and once again when he asked for payment. I would never reccommend this lawyer to anyone...

I have known Shauky (Michael) since my freshman year at Bronx HS of Science. He is one of my friends who, decades later, still has his same positive spirit, heart of gold and integrity in life as well as a capable and brilliant problem solver.
I trust him completely and know he has my best interest in mind and will cover my back for the unexpected. He has helped me and my family with my adoption of my daughter and my businesses with fantastic results.
You are one of the few great men I have known throughout my life. I feel truly blessed and privileged.

Great people, great work, great results! I am definitely glad I went to this law firm when I got rear-ended in a car accident. I heard about them through a friend and decided to go in and check out their situation . Attorney Musa the guy in charge, was really easy going and I could tell understood exactly the issues involved. He walked me through the process of what would happen and by the time our meeting was done I had a really good feeling about going forward with him as my attorney.....Needless to say, once the settlement check came I was very happy with my decision.

He knows his way around the court room and the entire legal system. There were numerous occasions where Michael saved my bacon. One time, the state sent notification that I had failed to fulfill my diversion obligation and would face further legal consequences. By the time my mail came in the afternoon, Michael had already taken care of it that morning.

Michael Musa Obergon is an amazing attorney and I know that I can always rely on him in my times of need. Thank you!
Posted by Lola, a Criminal Defense client, Flag
In my opinion, Michael has been a diligently great lawyer who truly took on my case with conviction. He thought out of the box, and worked until he was able to have a conversation with the DA. The verdict could have ended against my favor but I feel that I would still be satisfied with Michael's work and walked away with 'at least we really tried' and the reason why I commend him is because he really made efforts to understand and hear my story, reach out to the DA and present the case in the most advantageous light to bring about the best verdict he could.

Great immigration law firm. This law firm was there when we needed them. They were very professional and knew what they were doing. I was always able to talk to an attorney about my questions and they were really conscientious about making sure I understood everything that was going on. If you're unsure about finding a good bankruptcy attorney, you can really trust them.

My brother had a criminal record, including drug cases and when immigration picked him up we thought it was over. Mr. Obregon was very well prepared for the trial and after the a long day of many witnesses, the Immigration Judge stopped my brother's deportation and gave him a new lease on life. He now has his green card and my brother's bringing the law firm his citizenship application

Michael Musa-Obregon is the most knowledgeable, kind and caring attorney I ever had the pleasure to work with. His determination and loyalty to clients surpasses anyone I've ever worked with. Whether it's the afternoon or 4 in the morning, attorney Musa-Obregon will answer his phone to help get your loved one out of jail or just to answer a simple question. If that isn't determination, I don't know what is! I will always trust Mr. Musa-Obregon with my personal and professional affairs as will his countless clients. I have and always will recommend this attorney to everyone because once you meet this man, you will understand his passion and dedication to you and your case. Michael, thank you for all that you have done for me and hundreds of your clients. You are truly one of a kind!

Michael Musa-Obregon saved my life. When my family was against me and didn't want to help me he took my case and the reason I'm out of Riker's Island today is because of him. My ex pressed charges and I thought I was going to jail for three years before I talked to Mike. Mike showed she was lying about the whole thing and the jury came back not guilty. He is hands down the best lawyer I have ever used. I will never stop recommending this lawyer because he saved my life! Call him, you cannot go wrong.

This is a 5 star firm all of the way! They got the job done quickly AND correctly which cannot be said for the less reputable firms out there. Mr. Obregon helped me every step of the way from start to finish and answered every single question I had in detail with no problems whatsoever.

Michael was professional, friendly and affordable! Really, what else can you ask for? He made a confusing and tedious process as simple as it could have been. Having Michael with us at the interview really helped us feel more comfortable and he was great at making sure we didn't miss important deadlines. I highly recommend Michael Obregon to anyone with an immigration matter to resolve.

I would highly recommend this attorney. Make sure that you come early as there are always many people looking for his help at this office. Call ahead, so they know you made an appointment because everything gets busy. Even though he's very busy, he always take the time to explain everything.

I had my doubts about the chance of success, based on the jurisdiction in which the case was being adjudicated. However, Michael won the case and reunited a family. I have looked up to Michael as a successful attorney and on occasion for legal consultation and input on my own cases. It is a pleasure to know him and to have worked with him.

I would HIGHLY recommend Attorney Musa-Obregon. He is highly knowledgeable, trustworthy and very experienced. His staff is just wonderful and understanding while working with confidential matters. He is easy to communicate with and most of all, he will be here when you need him. My experience has been an A++++++ with his firm. He helped my loved one get out of deportation quickly for a very, very reasonable fee. Thanks to him, I have nothing to fear and I will always use him for all my legal needs. Do yourself a favor, go to him first!

I am very happy today since Mr. Obregon's office just got my husband out of Hudson County NJ on a criminal case AND an immigration hold. My husband was in a fight and they called the cops and he was charged with assault. Mr. Obregon's lawyers reduced the bail from $35,000 to $3,000. We paid the bail and immigration took him. then Musa-Obregon went to immigration court and got him out on an immigration bond. Now he's out on both cases and can fight the cases from the outside. We are so thrilled! We really thought it was the end until somebody recommended us to him. People kept saying that immigration was going to ship him out to Ecuador where we are from-but it wasn't true. Thank you very, very much Mr. Obregon!! Everything you told us was true even when every other lawyer said it couldn't be done!/ God bless you and your family. Anyone looking for a good criminal and immigration lawyer should call him. He will tell it to you like it is

Mr. Musa-Obregon was excellent on my case. I am a professional who was accused a serious crime and I thought it was the end. He defended me and I have my job back and my freedom. Call him, you cant go wrong. He is very honest and will give you his honest opinion, whether you want to hear it or not. Very capable and compassionate professional.

He was very kind and helpful and he really knows his stuff. He found solutions when other lawyers turned us down. Now have my citizenship after being put in deportation because of a mistake i made on my application years ago. I would highly recommend him. My hat off to him and his knowlegable staff.

He helped me with my son's drug cases. When I went to him i thought my son was definitely going to jail because he had sold drugs to an undercover six times. Mr. Musa-Obregon is a very good lawyer because my son did not have to do even one more day in jail. My son has got a good job now and is free man becuase of this lawyer. I definitely would recommend him very well.

We just came from Immigration Court and Mr. Musa-Obregon just got my husband released after three weeks of siiting in jail. I had talked to many people who said that once immigration picks you up because you got arrested, that you cant get out. Mr. Musa-Obregon said that wasn't true and he was right because my husband's freedom now is living proof of this. Now we must fight the criminal case but it will be easier because my husbands is home! Thank you Mr. Obregon for helping me and my family. We will never forget this. God bless you & your family!!

He now has his green card and my brother's bringing the law firm his citizenship application. My only complaint is that his office is always full of clients and you have to wait a while to see him because he's so busy. Would highly recommend him to anyone with a tough deportation or criminal case. He was my lawyer before my brother's and helped me a couple of times times with my criminal cases.

Mr. Obregon is an experienced, knowledgable attorney and it shows. He was a former Assistant District Attorney in Queens and he knew how to defend my son. I would recommend him to everyone.
