  • Phuntsok Jimmy Namgyal

    Mr. Purcell is an excellent immigration attorney. He is very well respected among immigration lawyers in Oregon. He has been my mentor for almost a year. I have learned so much from him about different areas of the law. He is the first one I call whenever I have a question because I know with over 30 years of experience he would have the correct answer. But the most I learned from him is professionalism. He takes his work very seriously and cares about his clients very much. I highly endorse him because of his ability, knowledge, professionalism, and caring heart.
