    Mr. Valko and his team helped my husband and I with my green card process. His team, Miss Erika Castro and Miss Kate Echols, were amazing! Pointing us to the right direction, making sure we had everything we needed and always, at any moment, they were there for us.
    We are so happy and honored to have Mr Valko working on our case and Yes, we won! again, Thanks to Mr Valko and his excellent team!
    Honestly, 5 stars is just not enough. They deserve the an entire constellation !
    Thank you so much Mr Valko, Miss Kate and Miss Erika for all the attention and for the great service.

    I'm very contended with Mr. Valko's professional services. He's an experienced and knowledgeable attorney with a great charisma once you meet him in person. He also maintains a dynamic relationship among his team whom I've also received great help from attorney Michelle Alonzo, a sweetheart, and Erica. Ms. Alonzo fills in position when he is not available and she showed up in person to speak directly to a supervisor due to a mishap in my case. Last but not least, his paralegal Erica is great and usually keeps both parties informed. Overall, they all keep in touch bases with you and are excellent. My case has been a success, thank you!

    Martin Valko helped me to obtain my permanent resident card and he and his team explained me and kept me informed constantly about the status of my case. I'm a business consultant in Dallas and help people coming from abroad to start businesses here with the help of US Attorneys and other professionals and I have worked with Martin to help my clients who are businessmen to obtain their Visa in order to legally reside and do businesses in the US . He always explains us the different type of visas and advises my clients which one is the right one for them and I can tell that all of them are very pleased with his service.

    For the first time in almost fifteen years of dealing with immigration, I felt very comfortable and at ease with the process as our case was pending. Mr. Valko and his team were very thorough and proactive, making sure that all of our bases were covered from the start by letting us know step by step what the process looked like and what we needed to provide to ensure a solid foundation for our case. All correspondence was returned swiftly and no questions were left unanswered. The team at Chavez and Valko really made us feel like they were in our corner.

    Martin Valko was very helpful and knowledgeable. My husband came to USA in 2004 as a student and later his father applied for him so that he can get his green card but unfortunately USCIS didn't approve him due to over 21 age. In 2010 the person who interviewed him, told him to wait for deportation letter but luckily they didn't send him one. After I received my Citizenship in 2013, me and my husband went to see Mr. Martin and he and his paralegal helped us a lot with filling up forms in proper way and guided us through the process , calling us for any updates or if they cannot reach us leaving us voicemail or Emails. Finally after 9 years of wait my husband is an immigrant of United State and we couldn't have done this without the help of Martin Valko and his paralegal Erika. I recommend people to Martin Valko and the only reason for us to hire them was the ratings that we saw on Google. Thank you once again!

    My name is Anthony and I'm originally from Australia. I am now a permanent resident of the US and can enjoy my future together with my spouse. This coud not have happened if it wasn't for the outstanding services and management of Michelle, Erika and the team at Chavez & Valko LLP. It has been an absolute pleasure working with them every step of the journey. I never felt like just another 'case' a 'client' with Michelle and Erika, I felt like part of the team and family. I strongly reccommend them to anyone who requires these services.

    My 77 year of mother was granted her permanent resident of the United States status last week.
    If it was not Mr. Walko and his team handling our case mom and I would be still lost in the jungle of bureaucracy. We got direction, instructions, advice, guidance and encouragement from Mr. Valko and his colleagues during the process. They were always very professional and friendly. I felt very comfortable calling them, exchanging emails with them or visiting them in person when I had questions. They went out of their way to help our cause. Thank you Mr. Valko, mom and I appreciate what you and your team did for us.

    My experience with Martin Valko and his team could not have gone better! On multiple occasions I walked in with no appointment and they attended me with no problem. Any questions I had, they answered, and everyone in that office has the best customer service. The previous lawyer I had made everything difficult, and once I switched to Mr. Valko's firm, I was worry free. I signed on with him and his team in August and in less than six months I am approved for my green card. Easily, Mr. Valko and his team, are people that I can recommend to someone for their immigration process. Everything was very well done, and I wish everyone there the best.

    • I recommend Martin Valko.

    I researched for almost 2 months prior to choosing Martin Valko. I also emailed 2-4 attorneys/companies requesting legal direction and options to my immigration status. I was a spouse of a US citizen and my Temporary Residential Green Card was expiring soon. Martin Valko was the first to reapond ( within minutes ) and emailed a rather detailed email with all scenarios ahead of me. I never heard back from the other 3 attorneys even after leaving them Voice Messages and messages with their office managers. I was contacted by a Staff Member from Mr Valko's office the following day and had an appointment set up within that same week! During the preliminary meeting, Mr Valko listened carefully and reviewed the pile of paper work I had presented him with. By the time I felt that I had informed him with all the possible details, he started outlining the options and finally recommended the best option based on his experience. I hired him and never regretted it even once. During the whole process, hos Team was utterly professional, continuously responsive and informative, supportive and best of all- they returned my calls within 15 minutes if unavailable at the time. I prefer emails so his Team was continuously emailing and updating me without even requesting an update ( and we all know how devastating this process can be! ). Erika worked closely with me and was superb.
    I highly recommend Mr Valko and Mr Chavez as they are knowledgeable and experienced. Their Team is also bery thorough and flexible. They will accomodate your schedule, they take their work seriously but they also value and maintain a good service by respecting your time.
    Today, I am a Permanent Resident of the United States. Needless to say, I owe much more than the Attorney fees to Mr Valko and his Team. If I had to recommend anyone for the Legal Immigrational Services, that would be Mr Valko and Mr Chavez along with their whole expert Team.
    Thank you again Mr Valko and Company!
