    I was recommended to George by my cousin I had visited many lawyers before and something gave me a good vibe of George. My case was very hard to win as I had previously tried getting status before with no success. I can honestly say George and his team helped me till the end, they stood on time of everything and kept me well informed. My case was a very difficult dosmestic violence and George and his team helped me win in 1 Year!!!!!

    I hired him, I paid him what he asked, an he send somebody else on the court day. Whoever the substitute was he just went 1 time to court and he settle my case leaving with a criminal record that I did not deserve; prevented me from becoming an American for long time and ruined the rest of my whole life.

    George A. Terezakis’s response: “In nearly 30 years as a defense attorney, neither I, nor any attorney working with me, has ever recommended a client of mine plead guilty to a serious crime, at the client’s first court appearance. I handle most of the appearances involving my clients’ criminal cases myself, although an experienced attorney working under my supervision may make a preliminary, appearance on my behalf. I always, review with my clients the risks and benefits of accepting a plea bargain versus going to trial, including the immigration consequences of any guilty plea. I have always warned my clients of the immigration consequences of any guilty plea - long before defense attorneys were required to do so. In nearly every felony case, and most misdemeanors, I am the attorney who appears with my client at their first appearance. On the rare occasion where a scheduling conflict prevents me from appearing with a client at their first appearance –I tell the client of this before they retain me. Before any defendant can plead guilty, they are first questioned by a Judge who explains the crime they are pleading guilty to and the important rights they give up by pleading guilty, instead of going to trial. They are also asked whether they are satisfied with their attorney’s representation. The client is then asked to explain what they did that makes them guilty - all before pleading guilty. Neither I nor any attorney who works with me has ever forced a client to plead guilty. In fact, we often advise our clients to reject an initial plea offer that would cause immigration problems, because we can frequently negotiate an alternate plea that avoids those problems. If that is not possible, we discuss the risks of going to trial, and will go to trial, if necessary. Our clients always make an informed choice, but in the end, the decision to plead guilty or go to trial is theirs alone to make. I cannot believe one of my clients would plead guilty to a crime at their first appearance, and I cannot believe they were not warned of the immigration consequences of their plea. It seems the person is either leaving out relevant information or not accurately reporting what happened. Please call my office: I would like to speak with you, because this is the first I am hearing of your complaint.”

I want to give him 10 stars  Thank you Mr Terezaki for everything !!!

    I would sincerely like to extend my appreciation and gratitude to Mr. George Terezakis and his entire staff.

    I was arrested for a serious crime, which resulted in being detained by Immigration after completing an eight-month sentence. Although, I was a legal resident for almost 30 years with all of my family living in the U.S. including my children, parents and siblings, I never became a U.S Citizen. After completing a sentence, it was extremely stressful to be detained with the risk of being removed from the U.S. from my family, friends and the life that I worked so hard to build since coming to this country. He and his staff guided my family and I through the stressful removal proceedings. They were always available for our numerous calls and emails. He was always honest about the timeline of the case and guided us through next steps. Mr. Terezakis was thoroughly prepared for hearings and ultimately won my trial! His preparedness was even mentioned during the trial by the Judge as she stated it allowed for the trial to move quickly and efficiently. I truly appreciate him taking the time to visit me while in jail to discuss details of the case and to ensure that I was prepared for trial. I was nervous, scared and afraid and Mr. Terezakis eased my worries. I currently reside in the U.S. thanks to the hard work of Mr. Terezakis and his team. He is very knowledgeable about Immigration Law and I highly recommend him to those that are dealing with a difficult deportation case. I was given another chance to return to my children, family and friends and all thanks to the hard work of Mr. Terezakis and his staff. I will be forever grateful and look forward to working with him again when I become a U.S. citizen.

  • Outstanding Immigration and Criminal Defense Lawyer

    Hired attorney

    I had been an upstanding, productive permanent resident of the United States for over 35 years. A few years ago, I had been charged with two criminal convictions. Although I had successfully complied with all the rules of the court, and had no more violations, I was detained at the airport, returning from a vacation, faced with deportation. My wife and I were shocked and confused not knowing where to turn. Mr. Terezakis had excellent reviews,so I hired him to
    handle my case. Mr. Terezakis is very knowledgeable in both criminal defense and immigration law, and very well- prepared in court. Neither my previous lawyer who handled the prior convictions, nor the judge, informed me what could and did happen down the road! Mr. Terezakis is sympathetic and non-judgmental. However, he tells you all the possible outcomes of the hearing.Since the judge presiding over my case had a reputation for being rather "tough" he suggested bringing in a medical expert to give testimony regarding my case.Mr. Terezakis, as well as my wife and I, wanted to avoid an "appeal" since I am in my mid-70s and that could have dragged on another two years, not to mention the extra expense! I took his advice, because I had a great deal of respect and confidence in him from the start. I won the case and am no longer living in fear of being deported and torn away from my loved ones. I can move forward and enjoy the few remaining years I have left with my family. I would highly recommend Mr. George Terezakis without any reservations. He gave me my life back! Thank- you!

    Mr. Terezakis was a very good lawyer. My brother was held in a detention facility in New Jersey and he drove from Long island, New Yrok to the facility to visit him. He prepared my brother accurately for his trial. Mr. Terezakis kept my family informed and was very helpful.

  • Hire with confidence

    The truth is, fighting for the right to have your loved one back in your arms will bring many to their knees. The uncertainty, the anxiety, the powerlessness...this process (for better or for worse) is a perfect storm of confusion. We had interviewed a handful of lawyers before stepping into George's office and where everyone else showed ambivalence, George showed confidence. George’s approach to our case was a sure and fearless stride. We instantly felt the assurance we were desperately looking for. There is an ethical quality to this team (read family)
    that will settle you.

    George’s talent was put on full display while he was writing our waiver of inadmissibility. He was able to attack the case from multiple angles presenting each argument with clarity, precision, purpose and cohesiveness.

    You have a responsibility to research, educate and prepare yourself of the process ahead. You need to put the right team around you to counsel you through the chaos. George and his team will provide you with that necessary foundation. So I say again - hire with confidence.
