  • Rodrigo Sebastian Da Silva

    I endorse Cletus Weber for his expertise in the complex field of EB-5 immigration. He is a trusted and reliable attorney that other immigration attorneys like myself look up to.

  • Thomas Roach

    I endorse this lawyer wholeheartedly. I've know Cletus for over 15 years. My practice is about 80% family-based and 20% employment-based. When I run into new issues with employment-based matters I ALWAYS consult with Cletus and his wife and partner, Elizabeth, because they are two of the best immigration attorneys IN THE COUNTRY. In additon to Cletus mentoring me I refer all my employment-based cases beyond my ken to Cletus and Elizabeth because I can rely on them to do a first-class job for people I send to them.
