Carmen is simply the BEST! How do we know that? Because my husband and I checked out a few lawyers before we made a decision to go with Carmen, and we didn't even think twice and as soon as we left her office, we said to each other, yes she is the ONE! She is very professional not only in her field, but in the way she handles herself, and -- that was of course the first impression that she gave us. Later of course we saw her professionalism in her field, she was on top of the things and that's what we loved about her the most. Thanks a lot Carmen, Kam and Larry
I was looking to immigrate to the U.S. a couple of years ago. Every "good" immigration lawyer was suggesting that I follow the EB-5 route which it turns out is often just a money grab for the lawyers. The fees for the program run into the high 5 figure range just for the lawyers. Additionally the $500,00 investment required by the program is invested in projects that are dubious to say the least and often results in the investor losing all of there money. The whole EB-5 program is as shady as it gets. I contacted 3 separate lawyers who did not ask any questions but strongly recommended the EB-5 route. Given the nature of the program I kept looking and saw that Carmen was involved with the Florida Bar Association. I called her and explained my situation and she immediately suggested a route that was much better in all aspects. The result was Carmen got me my green card quickly and without spending hundreds of thousands of dollars. She was a fantastic attorney - always pleasant, always accessible and always looking out for my best interests. And more importantly, she knows what she is doing.
I consulted with many law firms regarding my visa application for immigration. The reason I chose Carmen Arce was her forthright and informative approach, combined with a personal understanding I found to be comforting and reassuring. As chair of the board for Immigration and Naturalization at the time we consulted, I knew I was dealing with someone who specialized in her field. All in all, my dealings with Carmen and her staff throughout what is undoubtedly a stressful process, have been outstanding in terms of professionalism and a personal interest. She is honest, straightforward, delivers on her undertakings and is available whenever I have needed her. I highly recommend Carmen and her firm for Immigration procedures, and have done so to many friends who have inquired. My visa application was expeditiously handled and is now approved.
I was so blessed to had Carmen Arce as my lawyer. I met her through a friend of mine Rodrigo Artilheiro that convince me to work with her because the other attorney that we are work with made us feel that I don't have enough material to apply to Green Card and kept me apply for others work visa.
I spoke with Carmen and she said: -" Of course you are eligible to apply for a Green Card and you have a strong case!"
So that day I was sure that she was an angel that God put in our lives.
She is very patient, professional and kindly. Her positive attitude and Immigrant law knowledge helped us to deal with the obstacles that happen in the way.
We had our Green Card in 7 months after the day she sent the application. I never will forget the day she gave us the good news.
Eu e minha familia fomos muito abencados por ter a Carmen Arce como nossa advogada.
Nos conhecemos atraves do meu amigo Rodrigo Artilheiro no qual me incentivou a trabalhar com a Carmen ja que eu fui desacreditado pelo advogado anterior, no qual eu ja tinha feito outro work visa, que nao era qualificado para o Green Card.
No dia em que falei com Carmen pela primeira vez e expliquei o caso ela logo me disse: -"Claro que voce e qualificado para o Green Card e seu caso e muito forte!"
Ela realmente foi um anjo que Deus enviou na nossas vidas.
Ela e muito paciente, profissional e amiga. Sua atitude e sempre positiva, alem da sua sabedoria sobre as leis de imigracao nos deixam seguros quando enfrentamos alguns obstaculos que acontecem no caso.
Tivemos nosso Green Card em 7 meses apos o caso ser aberto! Eu nunca vou me esquecer do dia em que ela nos deu a boa noticia.
Carmen is a great attorney and support me and some friends in immigration process with excellent results. She is very professional and certified. I recommend for everyone her services.
