Wonderful!
Esquire Molina Flynn helped me and my husband throughout the green card process and we couldn’t have done it without his guidance. We truly appreciate all the time and effort he put into meeting with us whether that be on FaceTime, through emails, over the phone or lastly in our in person interviews at his offices! This process certainly is stressful and long but with his help and encouragement we were able to successfully obtain a green card this past week and we cannot say enough how happy we are that we can finally move on with our lives without having the stress of this decision always on our minds! We highly recommend his services and cannot stress enough how great it was working with him!

Gets results!!
Joseph helped navigate a complex case that became more challenging during the pandemic when everything slowed down even further. He was persistent in getting an interview date and my case was recently approved. He is an attorney who gets results and I appreciate his work. I would highly recommend him without any reservation!

Permanent Resident
It is always a little frightening to start any process with Immigration, but I felt at ease at all times. Joseph Molina gave me the facts, not what I wanted to hear. The communication was excellent; scheduling visits, phone calls, and consultation during the case’s entirety was always accessible and on time. My family and I are very thankful for all of the guidance and help during this case, and it has given us a lot to look forward to. As Permanent Resident now, I can move to the next chapter in my life with my family. Everyone at Molina-Flynn’s office has been exceptional, helpful, friendly, and professional. Huge thank you to the entire team.

A Pleasure to Work With - Efficient, Professional, and Personable
My wife and I will be forever grateful to Mr. Flynn. Right from the start of our first consultation, I was impressed by his professional bearing and thoughtfulness. Once we agreed to hire him, he proceeded to guide us through the byzantine federal immigration process with adroitness and effortless grace. "Joe" was consistently calm and professional; always cool of temperament and always providing the right answers. He skillfully addressed and allayed any concerns, and I will say it now, that when the whole process was drawn to a successful conclusion, we were all emotional, relieved, and exceedingly appreciative for how well he and his team had advised us. On the “Big Day” when my wife, stepdaughter, and I walked out of the immigration interview, it was with the utmost gratitude that we thanked this splendid attorney. On a further positive note, Joe is part of the “ARAG” network and was extremely fair in leveraging his fees. Also, his support staff is friendly and helpful nearly to a fault. I could not give this firm a higher recommendation!

Professional and Efficient Team
Joe did a great job handling my Green Card application. Throughout the process, I was kept well informed, received information and guidance on time, forms and documents were handled diligently, my questions were answered promptly - and there were quite a few from me. :D I have to mention that his staff is very polite and very efficient; very prompt in replying and always ready to help. Immigration can be a stressful process and I certainly was nervous, having a good lawyer made a huge difference for me. I was in caring and competent hands! Thank you, Joe and the team.

Thanks for everything Joseph!
Joseph and his team did a fantastic job handling both my divorce and immigration case. I initially contacted Joseph after learning the application for the I-751 Removal of Conditions was going to be a little bit trickier as a waiver process (I had been doing everything by myself at that point). He made sure I understood every step of the process, and was always straight forward and honest with me. He filled out all the forms, collected all the documents and evidence needed for my case, attended the divorce court with me, and prepared me for the final immigration interview. I was really anxious about the process so I naturally asked a lot of questions, but he (and his team) was always there to answer my questions on a timely manner over email and/or phone. I recently obtained my 10-year Green Card and I couldn’t be happier! I 100% recommend Joseph’s services, and I am sure I will be hiring again when the time comes to initiate the naturalizations process. Thanks for everything Joseph!

Green card petition
Joseph and his team did a great job on our immigration case. The process was smooth: they filled in all forms, helped us to collect all necessary documents and evidence of relations, prepared my husband and me for the interview. We were over prepared and provided a lot of information so that the process was really quick and immigration officier hasn’t any concerns that our marriage and relations are real. We are thankful for all Joseph’s and his team effort. Good luck with your business!

Joseph did a great job with our case. He was attentive to all of our questions and was always available to speak when we needed it. He was realistic in his approach for our case and was straightforward and honest. Even though we went through our case during the pandemic, he did an excellent job making our case a priority.

Helpful, reliable, and informative
I'm really happy my husband and I requested services from Joseph Molina Flynn. Even though our immigration case seemed pretty straightforward, it was really reassuring with the constant changes, furloughs, and restrictions to have someone keep us in the loop. We appreciate all of the help and support from him and his office during this process!

Top service!
I came to attorney Molina about two years ago with little hope to get my immigration status resolved, but he made me aware that I had viable options and walked me through all of them. All throughout the process he guided me with ease and amazing expertise. I could not be any happier with his services, as well with the help of his team, who all together are kind and compassionate, willing to help me succeed, specially knowing my aspirations. I am now a permanent resident of the United States, and able to continue to reach for my goals without a burden. If anyone needs of a genuine, and caring lawyer, Joseph Molina is the right person to do so.

Couldn’t ask for more
Attorney Flynn has given me hope in what felt like an endless life of post-final motions following my divorce. After years of back and forth, I decided I needed a fresh set of eyes on my very detailed and intricate case to help me get my voice heard; I was advocating for my daughter’s needs and I wasn’t going to stop. Not only did Attorney Flynn listen to what I had to say, he didn’t dismiss my concerns as small-he finally saw the bigger picture nobody else could see. He was honest, always helped me weigh all options, and we made decisions I actually felt comfortable and confident in. From there, he helped me get my voice heard and stood up for me and my daughter when nobody else could find a way. I don’t know how to describe the level of gratitude I feel for all he’s done, but thank you never seems to suffice. If you’re looking for someone who’s compassionate, quick, detail oriented, and will both tirelessly and fearlessly fight for your needs, this is the man to hire.

...to the rescue!
Upon being denied my EAD renewal I hired attorney Molina Flynn to review my denial and resubmit on my behalf. From the receptionist that answers the phone to the intern that assisted me in gathering information-- each and every person I interacted with was exceptionally professional and treated me with the highest level of customer service. Attorney Molina Flynn is strategic, thorough, and incredibly relatable! Since my initial EAD application was denied I was so anxious that the new one would be delayed and I could lose my job-- his office not only successfully renewed my EAD but my new EAD came in before the present one expired! I highly recommend them!

The best immigration lawyer
BEST IMMIGRATION LAWYER!! This was not your simple "Permanent Residency" case. Before arriving at the I-485 adjustment of status stage, joseph and his AMAZING team had to deal with several other legal procedures and obstacles to assure that all bars to adjustment were successfully overcome. It would not be an exaggeration to say that the best decision I've made in my life was to hire Joseph as my lawyer. He's an extremely passionate, helpful, and trustful human being that genuinely cares for the immigrant community and the well-being of his clients. Do not hesitate to hire Joseph. Perhaps he can change your life too.

Simply incredible
I feel like I am his only client based on the attention to detail, memory of details and understanding my situation. I went through a terrible and hostile divorce. He is able to sift through the noise and provide wise recommendations. He also does a very nice job in providing written communications. Very impressed with him.
