Michael Davis and his team are professionals who get the job done! I would highly recommend him. Michael and one of his Assistants, Rosa Gaona, helped my husband and I with a somewhat difficult immigration case. It was a long and arduous process that once got denied, but then finally ended up in our favor.
Along the way, his team provided feedback and alternate resources to me during this difficult process. At times I felt desperate, so this was very helpful. I know they work hard to ensure their clients are taken care of.
I'd say one thing that differentiates Michael from any other lawyer is that he's no-nonsense. He'll tell you the truth and that's exactly what you need to hear. Many lawyers may only take your case for the money. I did not feel that way with Michael Davis. He'll take a case to win! I believe he likes a challenge too. Don't get me wrong, I myself had to work very hard and gather all sorts of information and documentation for our case. But his team pushed me and followed up to make sure we were prepared for the best possible outcome. They prepared all of the information in a very neat, professional and concise package. I couldn't have asked for more.

Michael has been helping me and my partner with several immigration issues, including finding a way for my partner to be re-admitted to the U.S. despite his J-1 waiver, 'sexual orientation-based' asylum and residency application.
By far and large, Michael is the most trustworthy and experienced attorney in the Twin Cities metro and beyond. He is professional, resourceful, honest and effective.
Michael is the remedy for all of those who've been scathed in their experiences with 'deceptively helpful' attorneys. His breadth of experience and frankness in approach will get you where you need to be in your immigration pursuits. Michael will tell you the reality of your case and will come up with the best solution that is available to you. He is NOT afraid of difficult cases, to the contrary, his flair for challenge and drive to achieve his clients' goals propel him to work on his clients' cases as if they were of his own. Until we started working with Michael, we had never thought we would encounter an attorney who was worth every minute and every dollar we spend. We continue working with him as we finalize our permanent residency.
Just like in our case, we got tangled in immigration laws, dealing with a plethora of attorneys of whom many were not as good as they purportedly were and made dealing with the Immigration Service ever more difficult. Michael met us at a point where we thought there was no hope for us. My partner was stuck in another country, I was spending tens of thousands of dollars on living and travel between two homes, and the possibility of my partner being reunited with me seemed bleak. Michael saved my partner and me from being permanently separated by finding a way for him to be re-admitted. Then, he and his attorney Rosa worked on my partner's asylum case, which, as far as I know, had never been attempted before in Minnesota. Thanks to the depth of their knowledge and genuine sensitiveness to our unique circumstances, they built up a well-substantiated and grounded case. My partner received approval and is now allowed to live with me in the U.S. We owe Michael and Rosa our present and our future.
If you're out there looking for someone in whom you can confide and need to put the power of one of the most distinguished attorneys to work for your immigration situation, no matter how complicated, please give Michael a call. You'll never regret it. Most likely, it will be the most important call of your life. It WAS ours! SINCEREST THANK-YOU to both Michael and Rosa for all your hard work, emotional support and expertise that resulted in my partner and me being reunited to live together!

Michael Davis helped my husband get his Permanent Residency this last year. It was a difficult case, but we were approved and I am so grateful to the excellent work he and his office did for us. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs help dealing with an immigration case.

Michael Davis was recommended to me by a friend whose husband immigrated here from Honduras. My husband came here from Mexico more than 15 years ago, but our case was complicated and we faced the daunting I-601 waiver petition process. From the first consultation we could see that Michael was very thorough, knowledgeable, and honest. He didn't just take our case and gloss over the details. He asked us all pertinent questions, and told us what kind of odds we faced for an approval. Michael and his team prepared our petition. Rosa worked with me day-to-day with what was needed for our waiver packet. She is so well-organized, I don't know how she does it! I was amazed at how accessible both Michael and Rosa were when I had questions. Long story short, my husband went to the U.S.
Consulate with a waiver packet two inches thick and beautifully organized (I took a picture of it and was afraid to touch it!:). He was approved!!! Here we are, almost a year later, living our happily-ever-after in Minnesota! We sincerely thank God for Michael and Rosa!

Unbelievable Professional, Honest, Caring service. Our I-601 Waiver was Approved!!! I have not had good experience with a past Immigration Lawyer so I truly know the difference between determination and a willingness to help without being nickled and dimed everytime you turn your head. With Michael Davis and his Paralegal Rosa you get the service you deserve and expect from a Immigration Lawyer. I highly recommend Michael H. Davis for all your Immigration needs.
