Michael and Olivia are excellent. He helped my husband and I through the immigration process. I'm American and my husband is British. Without their help we probably would have been lost on what to do pertaining to paperwork and procedures. He was always there to answer any questions no matter if it was minor or major. He was very prompt on replying to email even outside normal business hours. His commitment to helping you get through the process is commendable. His explanation of every step of the process was with knowledge and explained so you can understand what is happening. Thanks to Michael and Olivia's due diligence my husband will be here at the end of February, only 10 months after filing. I highly recommend his firm. We are very satisfied clients.
My husband and I definitely recommend Michael Carlin if someone would like to ask about immigration. I am from South Korea and needed to go through out the processing of obtaing a green card despite how slow USCIS was. He patiently understood my English and our situation. I got a permanent resident card with him after about 3 months without delay. Recently we changed our address but we did not notify this move to the USCIS. Fortunately he was on top of things and he changed our address even after we worked with him for 2 years. We really appreciate his efforts and wholeheartedly trust him.
The very best in his field on immigration matters. Carlin was absolutely the most communicative lawyer I have ever encountered, we were always able to reach him one way or another. His professionalism, humanity and understanding. Very Impressive skills & wonderful down to earth person to speak to as well as being tough enough to get things done. I would recommend Carlin to anyone and he will also be the first person I contact for any further needs for immigration needs !!!!!!
My spouse and I absolutely recommend Michael Carlin as an immigration attorney for both routine and very complex matters! We first found Mr. Carlin on Avvo, and after a couple of consultations, decided to use his legal services in obtaining a waiver of the J visa home-country residence requirement and pursuing my U.S. permanent resident status. During each step of this long and difficult process, Michael Carlin's office delivered a successful resolution because of the exceptional commitment and work ethic on the part of Michael Carlin and his staff. Mr. Carlin is knowledgeable and experienced in the U.S. immigration laws and procedures, always prompt, resourceful and dependable, as well as articulate and honest. He set realistic expectations for the potential outcome of our immigration issues, worked diligently to help us build strong cases, carefully monitored their progress and quickly addressed any questions or concerns. His very considerate approach to working with clients made us feel like we had a true guide and partner in navigating the overwhelmingly complicated landscape of our immigration process. We are grateful to have found and chosen the Law Office of Michael Carlin.
You can find many immigration lawyers, but if you are looking for an EXPERT , who is HONEST and CARING then Michael is your guy. He managed our complicated immigration issue ( my parents and mentally handicapped sister) very professionally. He was able to guide us through achieving favorable outcome. Extremely knowledgeable , resourceful, compassionate and eager to provide every help you can imagine. Even when you get busy yourself with other stuff he would contact you to check on you. I recommend Michael STRONGLY to every friend and person looking for immigration lawyer.
Michael Carlin helped my husband and I file a provisional waiver of inadmissibility, because my husband was in the US undocumented and was facing a 10 year bar. Our waiver was approved and my husband went for his visa interview prepared, received his visa, and reentered the country legally 2 weeks later. Michael Carlin was approachable, completely informed and knowledgeable, always happy to spend time with us answering our questions, going over things twice or three times as needed, and was patient and kind with our kids too! He was very honest and upfront about our chances of success or failure. He always got back to our emails or calls immediately. We had a really great experience with him and his staff and will recommend him to our family or friends in need of immigration help!
I was an adjustment of status applicant with a complicated immigration background. Mr. Carlin was open and honest when describing our chances for success and extremely generous with his time from the moment we had our first consultation. He somehow gives you the feeling that you are his only client. He is extremely responsive by email and phone. After two years of working with him and an initial setback, Mr. Carlin successfully argued our case in front of the Board of Immigration Appeals when we probably had less than a 50% chance of getting approval! Mr. Carlin will work with you and use his experience to provide the best argument possible. Very thankful!

Michael Carlin first set himself apart by understanding our sense of urgency and responding to us almost immediately on a Holiday Weekend. Having done our research, we knew we wanted someone who could definitely get the job done, but we were blown away by the compassion he showed. Michael was current on immigration supreme court rulings which really saved us a lot of time and stress. He was able to give us a great recommendation for an attorney in a different field of practice. Our case went as smoothly as anyone could have hoped for, given the situation. We were always informed of every possible case scenario, never mislead or given false hope, always knew what our chances/expectations were going into every situation. By far the best, and hopefully last, attorney I've had.

I had a wonderful experience with Michael Carlin. He is reliable and was always available to answer questions in a timely manner. Our case went off smoothly and as expected. He is straight forward, honest and very knowledgeable. I will definitely contact Michael if ever needed again. Best place to go for immigration help and services.

I would rate Attorney Michael Carlin a 5 star because he was the reason that the USCIS granted permission for our family to stay together in the U.S. when my husband was on the verge of deportation. Prior to Attorney Michael Carlin taking up our case we had lost all hopes with other lawyers. From the time we have been with Michal Carlin he has reassured us that this case could be won and we started slowly gaining faith as he pursued with such care and dedication of the handling of our very sensitive case. Both him and his staff are very friendly, patient and caring; they all are so willing to help make the process a little less stressful. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends and associates. Our family is forever grateful to Attorney Carlin for all that he has done for keeping us together for without him our family would have been broken up by now. Thank you once again Attorney Carlin with all our hearts for all that you did for us and we wish you the very best in all that you do. Sincerely, Ruban family.
