Immigration case
Extremely intelligent, knowledgeable, professional, and dedicated to your case. Flavio set the expectations properly and prepared our case, considering factors that Google (or other lawyers) won't be able to figure out. Thanks to Flavio and Elena, my wife and I had a smooth and quick immigration process that will be remembered with joy! Thank you, Flavio!!! You are an exemplary lawyer, and we will be forever grateful to you and Elena!

Two separate sessions Flavio saved me time and energy to answer immigration questions
Over the course of two hours in two separate sessions, Flavio answered all my questions while providing lots of color. We were able to sort out a roadmap as well as pertinent forms and documents needed. Highly recommend

Incredible Attorney with Incredible results
Flavio helped us put a pristine immigration package together for my husband (from Brazil) to get his Green Card. The package was so well put together and organized that my husband got his work visa in 3 weeks and then his green card came exactly 5 months after the initial application. The normal waiting time for a Green card is minimum 8-14 months. There was not a single thing that was incorrect or needed clarification. He ensured we were so well prepared and the USCIS recognized that and we received the green card without even having to go for an interview. Thank you Flavio!!

GOAT
Mr. Boekel is a GOAT when it comes to family law and immigration - exceptionally talented, highly skilled and extraordinary professional. I retained him for my divorce and immigration case and he delivered the results I was seeking in a very timely manner. He goes the extra mile to understand what you want and then works extremely hard on delivering the results. He takes the case very personally and fights for you at every step like you are his own family. In my case he took the time to understand the customs/traditions in my culture and based on that responded to my ex-partner and her lawyer to talk some sense into them. Mr. Boekel is very knowledgeable about the divorce process and is honest and upfront about the timing. He would put the other party in place whenever they don’t follow the process and abide by the law. In my case when the other party wasn’t following the process and was trying to unnecessarily delay the case - he presented a motion to dismiss the case and actually cornered them so they were compelled to settle on my terms. I was extremely happy and satisfied with the outcome and his service.

Best Matrimonial Lawyer
Flavio Van Boekel is an exceptional lawyer. I hired Mr Van Boekel and he had the case annulled in less than 4 months. In court, the judge knew Mr Van Boekel’s good reputation, and he mentioned on record that I had an experienced attorney on my side. I recommend Flavio Van Boekel for all matrimonial matters.

Once again Flavio saved my life !
If there is an ally that I want in a war is Flavio. His ability to think outside the box and find a solution for every problem is amazing. From my emigration process to protecting me and my driving record from an accident with a police vehicle, fighting in the middle with a fake TRO against me, Flavio showed professionalism, focus and always forward and positive attitude helping me maintain my status and safety. Once again thank you for all you did and do! I have a clean record and a new beginning thanks to the good work of Flavio and his office.

Excellent, Knowledgeable and quick to solve a long long time case.
After years of lawyers and no end I can not explain how easy quick and reliable Mr Van Boekel is! I had an immigration case that dragged on since 2013 and he took care of it in less than 6 months. He is easy to get in contact with at anytime and will answer all your questions immediately. If you need an immigration lawyer PLEASE call him he will make your process easy and stress free! PS. Elena in the front is also great, the smile on her face when you walk in the office makes you feel like home. Thank you again for all you did for me and my family!

Amazing
Flavio was a great lawyer. He helped us with our case with child support, a bogus restraining order from a jealous ex and immigration. He and Elena were so responsive and wonderful. Couldn’t be happier and more relieved after the outcome of our case. Would recommend highly.
