I highly recommend Mr. Parsons and his team to handle your immigration case. Unlike an attorney that I had before (who I could never find when I needed), Mr. Parson or his team always communicated with me. They always answered my emails within 24 hours or less, or called me back when I had questions. Also, the fact that his office has not changed locations, that they called me if there were changes or contacted me to give me updates save me a lot of time and lower my stress. I had to hunt down my previous attorney from office to office every time I needed to renew my work permit. In the past, I was nervous and panicking wondering if I would be able to find that other attorney before the due date for my application. Luckily as I searched for a new attorney I found Mr. Parson. He is someone who I could entrust with my immigration paper work and that has reasonable fees. During the time he worked on my case he was very professional and cordial. He explain the requirements, the process, and the cost very clearly. In his explanation, he gave me a very realistic time line about how long it would take for my application to be processed. His predictions were very accurate during the 4 years that he managed my case. The only time he was off track, I was pleasantly surprise to receive my “green card” ahead of what he had predicted. Above all, I recommend him because he has always been reliable and honest. Some lawyers may try to trick you or snare you into applying for things that are not possible. From the beginning Mr. Parsons was very clear about my case and what my options were to become a U.S resident. I am very thankful for the care and respect in which he handle my case and they way he treated me.

I can highly recommend the offices of Paul Parsons and his staff. The citizenship process was fully explained and we went through the process smoothly as expected with their guidance. We are a family of 4 who after having our green cards for 5 years wanted to become citizens. We are proud to be Americans!! thanks to Mr Parsons and Norma.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of knowing Paul Parsons for 17 years throughout my entire path to US naturalization, originating when I came to work in the US from the United Kingdom. I had unusual complications which Mr. Parsons handled expertly, and he assisted me with permanent residency after my marriage to a US citizen. He has a warm and reassuring professional manner and is very thorough and well-prepared. His office operates efficiently, and I always felt well-informed and treated with great respect and care. Paul Parsons is a consummate professional and a very nice person to work with as well. I highly recommend him.

I first hired Paul Parsons almost 15 years ago to help me with my permanent residency application, and he has now helped me to become a US citizen. He and his staff took care of both applications with utmost professionalism and skill. Mr Parsons' years of experience as an immigration lawyer speak for themselves. Both he and his team are amongst the best, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

Many thanks to Mr Paul Parsons & his paralegal, Mr Daniel Villela for their assistance in attaining my green card. It arrived today ! Their huge knowledge & experience of the USCIS immigration procedure is most impressive. They turned, what I imagined would be a daunting process into a smooth & pleasant one. I would thoroughly recommend anyone needing an immigration attorney in Austin to contact this office.

I had the great pleasure of being advised by Dr. Paul Parsons during my Green Card Application Process. Dr. Parsons was really supportive during the entire application, and took the time to personally contact the Immigration Office over the phone to speed up our Case Approval. I was completely satisfied by the professionalism of Dr. Parsons.
He always replied quickly and candidly to the questions that my Wife and I had during our Case Evaluation. I remember Dr. Parsons emailing us on weekends and holidays with thoughtful explanations and updates.
I can certify that he provides a world-class support for Immigration Cases. He pays careful attention to details and patiently clarifies the long-term issues affecting immigrants who decide to live, study and work in the US.

As the Executive Director of Immigration Counseling and Outreach Services, I was shocked and saddened to come across a negative review of Paul that mentioned ICOS and compared his law office to our non-profit. He has supported a variety of non-profit organizations in Austin which serve immigrants for more 25 years with both his time and his money. He has served as a volunteer on non-profit boards for years. I write to him or call him for his opinion when I'm presented with a difficult case and know that he always welcomes an opportunity to help. He has been an important resource for us and very generous with his time. He has never requested any payment for his services to ICOS and has consistently encouraged me to feel free to communicate with him. Once when he and I had spoken to a church group, he sat down to answer individual questions. I wondered how late we may need to be there, having car-pooled, because he didn't rush anyone. He carefully and respectfully answered each question. Before I became an Accredited Representative, but while working for a non-profit, Paul explained to me pro bono how the law related to a situation in my own family. He has served individual clients pro bono with complex asylum cases. His fees are not excessive at all for a law office. A non-profit such as ICOS is able to (and expected to) assist for a nominal fee; we have grant funding, volunteers, donations. We exist to serve low income persons and refer those above our income guidelines to lawyers. Paul has always been on our referral list of about ten attorneys. It appears to me that he refers low income persons to non profits. A law office is not an inexpensive operation and must be funded by client fees. Anyone who needs legal services should value that assistance as much as any possession like a car or a house. While some are eligible for subsidized housing, for example, many are not and simply pay for it.
