    • I do not recommend Abbe Kingston.
    • I hired Abbe 1-3 years ago.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    First off, to be fair, I decided to choose another lawyer last minute so I did not really used this lawyer. Two main reasons turned me away:

    - Unresponsive
    - Unprofessional

    Unresponsive: my company send in email for information. days, no response at all.

    Unprofessional: Set up the appointment, last minute before the appintment, secretary called me that the lawyer is out of town and need to reschedule.

    I mean, really? is that my case not interested you at all ? or I am just another Unimportant client?

    Anyways, as I said, to be fair, I did not use this guy, so he may be good . BUT if someone is not responsive and unprofessional, I don't think this help much anyway ... consider this before you use this guy

    • I recommend Abbe Kingston.
    • I hired Abbe 1-3 years ago.
    • Abbe handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I was referred to Mr. Kingston to handle my immigration case because he is a certified immigration law specialist. He was able to get my case approved despite previous unsuccessful attempts by other immigration attorneys, processing problems and issues. His staff was very helpful and Mr. Kingston was available personally to answer my questions. Mr. Kingston's knowledge of the law and his approach resulted in a favorable disposition of my case. His fee structure was fair and clearly stated and there were no disputes. I received continuous updates and advice while my case was pending. I highly recommend Mr. Kingston

    I have been trying to obtain legal status in the U.S. for over 10 years and worked with several lawyers. Finally, I was introduced to Mr. Kingston and his office staff. My problem and my legal status was favorably resolved in a timely and cost effective manner. I can highly recommend Mr. Kingston to handle and resolve immigration related matters.

    I contacted Mr. Kingston because he was referred to me by colleagues for a complicated immigration matter. He is board certified but was truly able to explain the details in a way that I could understand the problems in my case. I was able to deal directly with him and was not passed off to paralegals or other office staff members. He was knowledgeable and attentive. I received excellent legal representation. He quickly and efficiently obtained a positive resolution of my case.

    • I recommend Abbe Kingston.
    • I hired Abbe more than 3 years ago.
    • Abbe handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Immigration Attorney Kingston provided me with realistic expectations and delivered what he promised. I spoke with 2 other attorneys who made everything sound simple and easy, when in fact it wasn't. Mr. Kingston was successful and very knowledgable about immigration law.

    • Abbe handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    He is the typical lawyer that let their assistants work for him. And of course, the assistants are out their mind. I always had to call to know about my case. He never answers the phone, he is always busy for your calls; he never answers your email, the assistants do.
    My process has been delay not for the INS processing time, it has been delay for their not interest in my case.
    He also found the way how to get more money from my case instead of find the fastest and honest solution.

    Before select this lawyer, please think about it.
