  • Michael Lee Moskowitz

    Knowing Charles as both a colleague and friend, I feel eminently qualified to endorse and highly recommend Charles and his firm to anyone with immigration needs, large or small. There are many immigration lawyers in NY, but few with Charles' combination of experience, knowledge of the law, and compassion for his clients.
