I had a very 'famous" expensive local immigration lawyer handle my L Visa, which was approved for one year. The same lawyer filed an extension of my L Visa, but the case was denied, which left me, my wife, and 3 children ilegale in the USA. Not only was my case denied but after I paid the lawyer I was never able to speak with him again - only his "paralegal". Going back to my country was not an option and he knew that. My friend recomend Michael Morano so I went to see him for a second opinion. He reviewed a copy of my case and could not believe how unprofessionale my old lawyer presented my extension, and how he did not advise me to do certain important things in my company before filing. Mr. Morano took over my case, told me exactly what to do, which I did. We resend the case and it was approved in one week. That was over 1 year ago, and Mr. Morano also handle my green card case too, which I already was approved with no problems. He's a very nice man to. I am very very very happy with him.
I had an old criminal conviction for something stupid I did when I was 20 years old. 15 years later ICE officers arrested me and put me in deportation proceedings. Michael Morano was able to stop my deportation, vacate my old criminal conviction and reinstate my green card. Mike saved my life!!!
I am a British screen and stage actress that was offered a once in a lifetime role in a Hollywood film. However, the studio required that I get the proper Work Visa before getting the job, and they gave me very little time to get my immigration status squared away. A fellow British actor recommended to see Mr. Morano. I was so glad I hired him. He was able to have my O-1 visa approved in less than 2 weeks. I have since referred him to a number of British actors, and they in turn have all been very happy with his firm.
I'm a UK national. At my first meeting with Mr. Morano I was taken aback because he looked very young, so I automatically thought he wouldn't be experienced enough to handle my very complicated case. Well, it took Mr. Morano 6 months to fix what my previous 3 lawyers couldn't do in 10 years.
