    • I do not recommend Thomas Hochstatter.
    • Thomas handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    At first, I thought that Mr. Hochstatter was taking care of my case. Then, other lawyer from his firm took my case over (they did not notify me). They asked me to pay the both lawyers' bills, but refused to sign their names on my immigraion documents as my lawyers. When I asked him the reason why they did not sign the documents, he mentioned that he did not want to be responsible for my case.
    Thus, when I re-entered to the U.S., an immigration officer said that I broke a law. I said to the officer that I hired immigration lawyers for my case. The officer said that lawyers do anything as long as you pay.
    I am not famliar with immigration law, so hired him as an immigration lawyer and followed him steps by steps. At the end, I regret hiring him and would not recommend this lawyer.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I am sorry that this individual had a problem when re-entering the U.S. I have been unable to identify the individual, and no one has contacted us about this problem. I am always willing to discuss any concerns a client may have. I want to add that we only decline to sign immigration forms when we have not prepared them and are not ourselves filing them with the U.S. government.

    • I recommend Thomas Hochstatter.
    • I hired Thomas 1-3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    I have used Tom's services for my naturalization case. His intimate knowledge of all aspects of this process was extremely useful. Both the application and the process overall was clear and well defined. I felt very confident and prepared for the interview.

    • I hired Thomas 1-3 years ago.
    • Thomas handled my Immigration matter.

    Mr. Hochstatter handled the marriage visa and green card application for my wife. I found him responsive, personable, kind, attentive, and endowed with an excellent sense of humor. Our application process was complicated, daunting, and fraught, but he helped us out enormously with the process, and I believe that he saved us years of waiting in separation.
