My father was in jail in Broward after he was arrested for felony aggravate assault with a deadly weapon. He had a public defender who did nothing in over one year. My dad was stuck in jail because immigration would not give bond. We hired miss Figueroa-Contreras to see if she could help defend against this felony charges. And she did a great job. She took the case to jury trial in Fort Lauderdale, it lasted 4 days, her against two prosecutors, she worked hard, and she won. The jury found my dad not guilty and within a day she got his immigration hold cleared and now he is out. I highly recomend
I had a very difficult and complex H-1B visa case. I had already worked in the U.S. for 6 years. But I had an approved I-140. Kristin Figueroa-Contreras was able to use AC21 (American Competitiveness in the Twenty-First Century Act) to help me obtain an H-1B visa beyond 6 years. My H-1B application had two RFE's (Request for Evidence) and was complicated because of other personal issues. But in the end she got the approval. She is very highly qualified and determined at helping her clients. Strongly recommended for Immigration issues.
Ms. Figueroa-Contreras is a professional. She gathers the facts and is methodical in her thinking and uses practical experience coupled with her par-excellent knowledge of the law to achieve a win-win for client and her good reputation as a professional with good results.
