  • Isabel del Cid Castillo

    I have worked with John on a number of sensitive cases involving an overlap of criminal and immigration issues. He works hard in negotiating with prosecutors in order to enter into a plea that will have the least consequences for our mutual clients from an immigration perspective. I would highly recommend John.
