Attorney, Immigration process
Mr. Rivera came highly recommended to us and proved himself every step of the process. We hired Mr. Rivera to assist in the immigration process of obtaining permanent residency for my Canadian husband. The process itself was very intimidating. However, Mr. Rivera made the experience feel as smooth as possible. Ramon explained each step along the way, updated us regarding progress, and addressed questions and concerns nearly immediately. He is professional, extremely knowledgeable, and personable. My husband and I would retain his services for all legal matters if we could!

Very experienced and patient laywer!
I had some concerns over my H1B work visa status and paid the 15-minute consultation with Ramon. He spent 10 minutes to answer my questions and also offered to do more research for me on possible options. Then we spoke again the next day and he explained in greater detail about the possible options. Ramon is very patient and very experienced on immigration related topics. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for solid answers to immigration concerns. Thank you Ramon!

An exceptional lawyer with a proven track record
Ramon Rivera is an exceptional lawyer who gets results and cares about his clients’ success and well-being. I am an executive at a large global company and Mr. Rivera has been our primary counsel on a number of immigration and employee related cases. My family has also had the pleasure of work with him throughout our own immigration process. In my opinion, the secret to his exceptional track record is his attention to details, through examination of each case and every individual he works with. With his experience and strong up to date knowledge base he can work fast and accurately making the most of his clients’ time and resources. It is my pleasure to recommend Mr. Rivera to both individuals and companies seeking services in his field of expertise.

Excellent Lawyer
We have a great sense of gratitude and appreciation towards Mr. Rivera. Not only he did such a great professional job for us, but also he cared about our case giving his very best efforts to succeed. Mr. Rivera proved to be extremely knowledgeable and wise. While receiving great advice and expertise, we also noticed his interest in keeping honesty and ethical values at the core. Before we committed to hire him, he made an honest assessment and a serious consideration of our case, providing important information to help us assess our case. We realized that he knew exactly what to do and, in the process, he was able to provide us with a sense of confidence, strength and hope. I enjoyed very much working with Mr. Rivera and we like to highly recommend him as an attorney.

Great immigration attorney

Experienced lawyer, nice guy
I am currently working with Ramon for my marriage based green card. Though my case is still pending, I have no doubt that it will yield a good result eventually because I have a great lawyer in my back. Ramon has a lot of experience and knows how to utilize those experiences in each case. Besides, he is a calm but caring person. Sometimes, the US CIS is not the fastest moving branch of the federal government, which makes people like me anxious. Ramon has a calming effect on me when he explains the situation step by step in a highly professional manner. I also would like to add that, as a lawyer myself (though not an immigration lawyer), I learn a lot from Ramon regarding the lawyering skills, especially the client relations. I highly recommend Ramon for any kind of immigration related works.
