After dealing with 2 other immigration attorney's, we were referred by a friend, to Steven Culbreath. What a pleasure to deal with Steven! He is very knowledgeable, at all times professional and yet made us feel at so at ease. This was the most stress-free application that we have submitted. I can highly recommend Steven Culbreath as an outstanding immigration lawyer. You will not be disappointed! - Thank you Steven!

From the first time I communicated with Steve Culbreath, before I had made the decision to hire him as my lawyer, he stood out amongst the multitude of lawyers I had made contact with about my case. He not only responded within 24 hours and treated me with professional courtesy, but he had reviewed my case, was confident, and truly knowledgeable about the process I needed to follow. A process that was not only manageable, but made extremely stress free, knowing I was in good hands. An honest, easy-going, personable and professional lawyer from day one, to the day I walked out of the immigration office an American Citizen, and beyond. I will forever be gracious for his help, and definitely recommend him to anyone dealing with immigration issues.

Attorney Culbreath assisted my husband and I through my husband's immigration. His fees were the best around. We completed the rough draft of the paper work and he did the formal completion and let us know what documents were expected. He submitted eveything quickly and kept us informed of the status and always responded timely to my emails. The only minor issue was when I was informed a couple days before our immigration interview that he had another obligation and could not be there but he assured me we will do great. I was in a panic and he was agreeable to reschedule our interview, which I disagreed to do but trusted his confidence in us and as it turned out he was right. No one can know everything and in the end (thus the "good" rating, my husbanded was required to get his divorce documents translated into English by a professional translater, which was another expense and delay. Attorney Culbreath has someone he works with and it was taken care of immediately for an extra fee (less than $100). YES, I would recommend him to get your through your immigration!

After talking to no less than 6 immigration lawyers we finally found Steven. None of the other lawyers could answer any of our specific questions regarding various visa options like Steven could. It was such a breath if fresh air and such a relief to finally get answers to our questions.
Steven really knows his stuff and is very personable. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Steven as we were bouncing around with what visa we would actually transfer to- but that never phased him. Steven was an absolute professional the whole time.

Steve made a great job! He filled all the forms that I needed for my Green card. He also kept me informed what is going on with my status. After everything was done and the actual Green card already should be mailed to me, the card status appeared to be delivered on my status but it never was! So I contacted Steve immediately and told him about the issue. USCIS said is was delivered and they will charge me 450$ for replacement. So Steve wrote a nice letter to USCIS and they replaced it for free!
PS: Steve and I met first in 2009 when I was on vacation this time. My immigration took place in 2011/12. We are still in touch but now on a friendship level!

We had the need to change from L1 to E1 very urgently.
Mr Culbreath worked extra hours to get it done.
Thanks for your great support

Dedicated and trustworthy are the first words I think of when describing Steve. He was recommended by a friend to help me with my citizenship process and I was not disappointed. He personally handled my case, was very knowledgeable of the intricacies, and provided support promptly every step of the way. I am glad I worked with him and felt he genuinely cared about his work.

Numerous disappointing attempts with immigration lawyers preceded my contact with Steven Culbreath. With the other attorneys we always had the feeling that making money was of more importance than dealing with our issues.
After we had almost given up hope, we tried once again and made contact with Steve in Saint Petersburg. It was impressive to us that he took time to work on our request on a Saturday; and the $100.00-per-half-hour-clock was not ticking.
And in this manner our association continued with Steve regarding our visa. Although we haven’t yet reached our ultimate goal, without Steve we would have been back in Germany long ago. Since that time, we have engaged two employees. In this area of business counsel, Steve Culbrath was the ideal consultant.

After listening to many peoples stories and complaints about their lawyers we finally heard great things about a lawyer called Steven Culbreath. We hired Steven and it was a great decision. He is very knowledgeable and experienced and with his patience and hard work we were succcessful in receiving our Visa. We have been recommending Steven ever since. Thank you Steven.

Steven has helped me file for dual citizenship.
He is very knowledgeable and it helped that he speaks English & German fluently.
He gave great advise and worded things right so that my Beibehaltungsantrag was approved.
I already recommended him to friends and will keep on doing so.

Steve has done our immigration status from scratch to finish within 5 years. He is very cooperative, friendly and helpful. He doesn't have hidden suprizes.

Steven is one of the most positive immigration lawyers I have met. He is smart, knows his stuff, and is people friendly - a key trait needed to be successful in this field. He exhibits a lot of good will, is a creative thinker, and does his homework. I strongly recommend him to future clients and other lawyers who might need to deal with him.

I had a very scary case scenario, and he was able to handle the case and lead me and my family to a success. As a result we are living in America and recently received a 10 year greencard

"We got to know Steve back in January 2008, when he was working for another law firm. From the first day on we knew, that Steve would be our go-to-source for each and every question we would have regarding a visa strategy. When we got aware that Steve would leave from the other law firm we didn’t hesitate to follow him – and we did right! Steve is more then just our lawyer, he’s a friend of ours. With patience, high motivation and even a higher level of both passion and expert knowledge, Steve paved the way for us to obtain a visa. Since it was difficult to start up the kind of business that we wanted to start while not being continuous here in the U.S., Steve suggested to start with a specific business visitor visa (B1) as “prospective traders/investors” which will ultimately lead us to an E-Visa. It worked exactly out like Steve told us it would. Whenever people ask us for advice which lawyer they should consider or ask us to refer one, it’s quite easy who we mention. Steve Culbreath – the lawyer, the friend." (-- Lars Hommrich --)

When I first came to Sarasota, Florida in the summer of 2006 – and after it had become clear to me that my particular business situation made it necessary for me to remain in the United States for the coming years – I was put in touch with Steven Culbreath, Esq.
From the start, Steve impressed me with his courteous demeanor, thorough know-how of American immigration law and refreshingly professional approach in assisting me with obtaining the required documents.
Working with Steve over the years proved to be the best choice I could make. Despite a constantly busy schedule, he is always available to me - no matter what day of the week or hour of the day - quick to provide the information needed. The service he provides is invaluable to me.
What started out purely as a business relationship with Steve has turned into a friendship, for which I am truly grateful. It is a joy and privilege to know Steve and it is my hope that more people requiring legal assistance on immigration matters will be introduced to this capable man of the highest integrity and competence.

Steven was a gem. He went out of his way to make me feel at ease. His quiet calm demeanor is just what I needed when I am panicking with the confusion of immigration law.. He made everything seem effortless while working diligently behind the scenes. He was like my big brother, trusted friend, and more than a lawyer. I cannot recommend highly enough.

Having dealt with Steven Culbreath for many years I can highly recommend his services and expertise in Immigration issues. He is very thorough and knowledgable and helped us to still be living in the good old USA...

From the first visit to arrange our visas Steven has been
nothing short of a Best Fiend that has stood by us through some very trying
times. We have felt very confident facing all the challenges we encountered
as we are aware of Stevens professional approach and compassion. Stevens
attention to detail and knowledge of the law is very reassuring and
comforting. Therefore I have had no hesitation in referring Steven to all my
friends and Family.

There are many professions and professionals out there; however there is a small percentage that always stands out and separate themselves from the rest, in my mind this can only be for reason, and that is performance, these professionals exceed client expectations, on a long term basis, they are committed to the cause, and deliver winning results, in life one always remembers the winner and not the runner up, if you want to be a winner you need to be working with the best and Steven Alexander Culbreath is arguably one of the best lawyers in his field, I can truly say this as a client and would more than be happy to share my case with any entity and Stevens work.
