Proffessional and Relatable
I was able to connect with her well and she was relatable. Amy connected with me on a personal level. It felt like I was working with a family member rather than an Attorney. Highly recommend her!

Competent, Experienced, Sincere
My husband and I were looking for an immigration lawyer last year. We made a lot of phone calls and visited a couple of lawyers for consultation. Many lawyers do not take phone inquiries. They let their office staff take care of that. Also many lawyers rush and appear unimpassioned, just plain matter-of-fact, during consultations. Atty. Amy Morilla is special. She took time to speak with me on the phone and thoughtfully, clearly and patiently answered all my questions explaining the process, requirements, fees, time-frame even before we met. My husband and I thought, this lawyer is different from all the others we have considered! So we decided to retain Atty. Amy Morilla who made us feel and think 'We are in very good hands!' during the entire process of applying for an adjustment of status/residence permit. She is knowledgeable and thorough. She is understanding and wholehearted. We LOVE Atty. Amy Morilla! We would like to give her more than 5 stars!

General Business Legal Services
Amy has assisted my company with legal services on a number of occasions. This has included incorporation of a new business and other general business needs. She has provided services during equipment acquisitions. I would, without hesitation, recommend Amy's services and the services of MC Law Group, LLP. As a small business owner it's important for my business to have the right people for the right job. Amy and her company are, in my opinion, extremely professional in every aspect.
