Help with travel document
I retained Julio Cortes del Olmo to help me obtain an I-131 re-entry permit to cover a prolonged absence from the US. The process was handled very quickly and professionally and Julio was a pleasure to work with.

Got my second green card without an interview
I’m so happy I got to work with Julio! He is super professional, does a very thorough work and always responsive and reliable. I had to remove conditions of my green card without husband (divorced earlier) and he helped me put together the packet. Yesterday, 1 year later I got my green card without an interview!

PHENOMENAL experience
I rarely write reviews but this has been such an incredible journey and I have no words to describe how much I appreciate this law firm. Not only is Julio who is one of the most compassionate lawyers but he is also a superb lawyer. He’s organized, knowledgeable, and his knowledge of immigration law is phenomenal. If you want an immigration lawyer — someone who really knows the job and how hard it is to secure a green card — hire Julio and you’ll definitely be a winner. He’s one of the best lawyers i Boston.

Very professional and attentive. You made life possible for my family and I in America. We can’t thank you enough for all your hard work. Go see Julio if you need help with your immigration status. Hands down the best immigration lawyer! We got turned down by five other lawyers before him and he was the only lawyer that made it possible. Thank you!

Green Card (Conditional and Perm)
Julio represented me to obtain my conditional and permanent green cards and both times it was a breeze to work with him. He was very helpful and provided his full attention and time to understand and formulate the case per all possible legal norms, before filing. He is very friendly, professional and approachable. Once he has your case, you can reach out to him with any relevant questions or follow ups and get your answer on email or phone. I highly recommend him and his office.

Intelligent and Personable
Mr. Julio, was very thorough with my case, very detailed and prepared me for my immigration Interview. My asylum case was grueling, sad and depressing but Mr. Julio created an atmosphere where I could trust him with the tough details of my life. As we went through the preparation process, he was very supportive, encouraging and a very good listener, yet very professional. With his vast knowledge of immigration laws and outstanding intelligence, I was ready for the big Interview, which I am happy, humbled and thankful to say, I passed!!! The journey through Asylum is very tough and what you need by your side is a good lawyer like Julio Cortes del Olmo

Attorney Del Olmo made the process so easy and kept us informed the whole time. We couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Attorney Del Olmo helped my wife and I with the adjustment of status for the spouse of a US citizen, employment and travel authorization. This process can be daunting and filled with confusion, however working with Attorney Del Olmo took all of that away. He put everything in terms we could easily understand, and he provided a level of organization that gave us the peace of mind needed to make this a positive experience. Throughout the entire process my wife and I felt that Attorney Del Olmo made our case a priority, and always had our best interests in mind. We will forever be grateful for his help.

Professional, Brilliant and exceedingly good at his job
My experience with Mr. Cortes was magnificent. Absolutely outstanding. He pays great attention to detail, reviewed all my documentation, really guided me and helped me prepare for my immigration interview. I felt confident in his methods and the way he handled the whole process. His perception on things and guidance made me feel safe and comfortable. He is a good communicator, always willing to answer questions and bring you to a good level of understanding. He is very thorough and covered all aspects and possible outcomes of my case and we prepared for all possible situations. All in all, I would recommend him to anyone, It was a great enlightening experience to work with Mr. Cortes.
