Best in the Business ( Totally Awesome Sauce)
Based on my experience with Nicolas Caraqual Law Offices, I can say without doubt that it is the best law office out there when it comes to immigration matters. My Fiance' contacted Nick after talking with a friend that had used his services to be with her fiance' in the United States . My Fiance' contacted Nick over facebook for a free consultation. After a brief conversation and us explaining our situation Nick was more than willing to take on our case. A few days after our conversation, Nick had sent Me all the a contract and everything we needed to make the immigration process quick and painless. We Hired Nicolas in May and my Fiance and me will be together for Christmas.. Not only was Nick swift at handling our case but he was professional and caring throughout the process. He responded quickly to our instant messages and emails and the process gave me piece of mind. I highly recommend him to anyone who is in search of a highly qualified immigration lawyer. Don't just take my words for it. Give him a call.

My Wife's (APPROVED) Immigration
First, let me say YES, I would strongly recommend Mr. Caraquel for any of your immigration needs. His ability to ask all relevant questions and measure the needs of your specific case during the initial consultation, allows him to define and outline the realistic needs and expectation of your individual case. This allows him to provide the client with a clear overview of their case and how he will proceed forward in his legal assistance for your case. My wife and I wanted to be able to start the process for her U.S. residency after having run into an issue the previous time that she had visited the U.S. Mr Caraquel was very informative of what our options would be from a legal perspective. To be honest, as someone who is always checking and confirming things to the best of my ability, I did a lot of research about the things that Mr. Caraquel told me in our initial consultation. After independently verifying what he had told us, we chose to hire his services for our immigration journey. And I could not be happier with that choice. Mr. Caraquel and his office provided all of the necessary forms in a very professional, well defined, and easy to follow packet. Information and guidance on all areas of my wife's Adjustment of Status were clearly stated verbally and with helpful notes throughout the paperwork. I must admit, we probably asked the same questions and brought up the same concerns a hundred times during the process, but Mr. Caraquel was always available with a quick, reassuring answer for us. When a USPS mailing mistake caused the loss of one of the USCIS letters (and a lot of worry on our part), Mr. Caraquel explained it's relevance at the moment and rectified it by having it resent and mitigating any issues that it may have caused. From day one, through the day of my wife's immigration interview (APPROVED) and beyond, Mr. Caraquel has been a very valuable asset to myself and my wife. Mr. Caraquel's ability to handle any questions we had during my wife's immigration process was worth every single penny paid. His professionalism, knowledge of immigration law, high organizational skills, and friendly and helpful attitude reflect highly upon himself and his ability to help any of his clients' needs. I again, strongly recommend Mr. Caraquel for any of your immigration needs.

Marriage based green card visa
I live in CA and I was referred by my sister of an immigration Atty. in NYC. I couldn’t find a right immigration lawyer here in CA so I tried my sister’s recommendation. It’s a long distance communication and also documents have to send via mail; however, this team made sure that documents will always have tracking numbers, I mean I know there will still be a probability that’ll it’ll get lost with logistics but putting on a tracking number could at least ease that hardship. They are very organized (such as documents, time, client specific, etc.). They also are very knowledgeable in different immigration cases. They list down all the things that you’ll need to prepare and also guide you before the main interview. They are very responsive when you have case inquiries or ask them about updates. So overall, I would highly recommend them for any immigration cases.

Achieving realistic goal
Atty. Nick sets expectations and realistic goals to be met during the process of filing my visa. From the beginning, he clearly stated possible issues that will be encountered and see to it that there is nothing to be worried about. He delivers his promises and guides me from the application until I passed the visa interview.

My american dream journey
I am very thankful for Atty. Nick & Co. They are very accomodating, explain everything. During the interview they prepare everything I need which I didnt expect it. Atty. Nick serve a very big help for me specially my case, I was not approved immediately because I got 221g status, they really help me everything until the Embassy issued my Visa. I was not mistaken that I choose IDreamAmerica. They played a big part in my American Dream Journey.

"Attorney Nick is passionate about our job which is primarily to help immigrants with their immigration concerns. He has a soft spot for them owing maybe to our being immigrants ourselves. Diligent and always on top of things in the immigration field, he is a lawyer whom clients can count on. For such, this colleague deserves my recommendation."
