In looking for legal assistance for attaining a visa, Chris Gafner responded quickly and honestly. He provided advice that allowed me to make an informed decision about how to proceed toward attaining the visa.

What a terrific experience start to finish. Chris was excellent both in the macro- and micro-details of the Adjustment of Status process. He was a steady hand from start to finish - our only job was to assemble the paperwork and attend the interview. Now approved, I could happily recommend Gafner Law Firm to anyone.

Everything was very professional and the entire process of getting my permanent residency ran very smoothly. He was always responsive to every email and request. I couldn't be happier.

Chris is among the hardest working attorneys I know. His patience, diligence and knowledge of the law provide his clients with effective representation. When I have an immigration question, I turn to Chris Gafner.
