  • Benjamin Dacin

    David Koelsch is a spectacular immigration attorney who has extensive experience in the field and is extraordinarily competent. I knew him when he was an Immigration Law Professor in law school and he was consistently voted one of the best professors every year. Overall, a great lawyer and a great professor. Would highly recommend to any client, especially those with cases no other attorney can handle.
