    Hired attorney

    Mr. Cavanaugh and his staff were very helpful when my Canadian born wife needed a green card.
    Took out all the guess work. Very informative and knowledgeable during the lengthy process.
    Responded to all inquiries in a timely manner.
    I recommend him and would use his services again.

    Hired attorney

    I think I was deported because how Mr. Cavanaugh represent my case. After I hire him he never meet with me accept for in court. He was late for court and not prepared. The immigration judge got mad at him because he did not file the right papers. I think it would have been better if he talked about my wife and kids but he did not. I am not sure he remembered I had kids. I choose him because he seemed to care but after I pay him he never seemed to have time for me.

    William Michael Cavanaugh’s response: “I honestly do not recall any such instance where I was late, unprepared, filed something incorrectly and "got the judge mad". This doesn't sound characteristic of my legal representation. I do my best for all of my clients, and I always prepare them ahead of time, not just meet with them in court. That being said, I am an aggressive attorney and do not shy away from tough cases. Taking difficult cases means that you cannot be successful 100 percent of the time. Many factors go into whether a case is won or lost, and not all come down to the attorney. What I do know is I strive to provide honest and zealous legal representation for all of my clients. And I have had a lot of positive outcomes over the years in cases I have handled. I understand your frustration, and wish I could comment more but I simply cannot recall such an instance where this actually happened.”

    Mr Cavanough is the best immigration attorney i have ever met. He and his team helped me after i had to withdraw my case from another attorney. He has lots of knowledge ,he listens and advises. He promised me good result in short time and he delivered. I felt like i had an attorney and felt safe during the whole procedure. I could reach him or his associate for questions any time and he would answer within minutes(including on his free time and saturdays). I trusted my future in his hands and don't regret a bit. Definitely the attorney i would recommend to anyone that needs to feel that is in good hands.

  • I GOT MY PRIMA FACIE

    Hired attorney

    You are God' Sent! Thank You!

    Words alone can never fully express my satisfaction, gratitude and joyfullness for the level of service and support that the immigration Law office of William Cavanaugh provided me! Mr Cavanaugh and his team are very professional yet humane in the services they provide! I can never stop thanking God for brining me in contact with this Law office!

    I was severely abused by my US citizen husband, and came out of the relationship in 2004. An then an employer sponsored me on EB3 /plied for 1485 application since 2008, the case got stocked, and I have been trapped in an unhealthy/unhappy work environment I didn't know what to do and how to get out...i was at the verge of giving up and getting ready to return back to my country! I was scared to death fearing all the worst immigration outcome, and got confused with enormously stressful immigration worries.

    Prior to my visits to the Law office of Cavanaugh, I had seen another Attorney', it will appear all they wanted was money, and took no interest in the detail of my case profile. That was when I took action of faith and contacted Law office of Cavanaugh thinking that "I will do just one more consultation before I depart USA;" I am so glad I did!

    The first thing I noticed upon arrival to the Law office of Cavanaugh is the warm welcome by the staff, which was followed by introduction to Mr Cavanaugh a honorable immigration Attorney whose persona of humbleness, humility and kindness brought about a platform for non-threatening environment. He talked me through my past and current immigration issues, analyses my case status, and came up with perfect suggestion...SELF PETITION! My VAWA application was filled within a month and I received my PRIMA FACIE in less than 2 months! Certainly all my fear and anxiety are now lifted...I can sleep better now, I feel protected, amidst all my fears, the Law Office of Cavanaugh helped filled my EAD and that also got approved!

    I recommend this wonderful immigration Attorney! And if you think your immigration case is hopeless, don't lose hope just take a few moment and have a phone consult with Mr Cavanaugh, it's free! And then the most excellent part of my experience is that I can actually pay my fees instalmentally, that's not done anywhere else! Thanks to Mr Cavanaugh and his wonderful Team, I am very proud to be their client! Everybody in that office takes ones case to heart, and they are very compassionate.

    Consulted attorney

    Mr. Cavanaugh and his staff were very helpful from the first contact with him and I got very quick response to all my email questions. When I contacted the office to set up a consultation, Rossanna explained me all the consultation process, she was very kind and helpful, When I met with Mr. Cavanaugh, he was very pleasant, very respectful, he made me feel so comfortable talking to him. Mr. Cavanaugh explained me all the process for my visa needs. He is the most honest Lawyer I have ever meet, he really cares about people needs, not only the money like unfortunately others lawyers do . I feel very confident recommending Mr. Cavanaugh for all immigration needs.

  • Office doesn't provide info even about the general price of visa representation.

    1.0 star

    Posted by Sam

    Office doesn't provide info even about the general price of basic none complicated by other factors visa document revision and representation.
    Terrible communication. Staff clueless.
    Considering that an overseas caller trying to find out about particular easy case of fiancé visa representation , the price of the procedure is vital.
    this ttorney's office couldn't give me any info regarding the price for that particular work and wanted to charge me 50$ just for getting that info from the attorney himself (basically to find out the price you would need to schedule the meeting with this attorney who you have no idea if you want to help you yet and if you can afford it so he can inform you himself how much it is).
    There are no email free price consultation, no info about the prices at all.

    Every respected attorney should have before hand price range info available for a potential customer. Not neccessarily exact but rounded up price, plus the info on what makes the price go higher.
    In a simple case such as reviewing the documents for fiancé visa and representing the couple the price should be visible and that is just a standard.
    Unless attorney wants to play the price based on go is applying... Richer poorer... And based on how much he can get for the same job.

    I think this is not clean and fair.
    And would rather spent my money on an honest attorney with no hidden prices but all up front.

    But you decide for yourself...

    William Michael Cavanaugh’s response: “This caller was extremely rude to my staff. Also didn't want to leave a name or call back number. Not every attorney discusses fees over the phone and especially doesn't have their receptionist give that info out. Many factors related to the case determine the fee. What this caller might consider "simple" might end up being far from it depending on a variety of factors (which the caller did not want to give out). We are very fair with our fees and do not price based on "richer or poorer" as this caller suggests. This caller didn't even want to disclose any personal information, not even a name and contact number where I could return the call or give more insight as to my fees. I am a very honest attorney and being that this person has never even so much as spoken to me in person, I think this review was uncalled for and clearly misleading.”

    The immigration system is very confusing to navigate on your own, lots of forms. Mr. Cavanaugh and his staff were very helpful from the first contact with a quick response to an email question. When I contacted the office to set up a consultation, they were very accomodating and explained the consultation process. When I met with Mr. Cavanaugh, he was very pleasant. Not like the typical lawyer types who sit arrogantly thinking they are better than you. Mr. Cavanaugh explained the process for filing not only the visa I was looking for but also what I needed to do once the visa was approved. I felt very comfortable with the decision to use Mr. Cavanaugh for all my immigration needs moving forward.
