He is the one
I met with 3 lawyers regarding my case, Mr. Serotte was the one I picked, and that's because of his knowledge and his work ethics, He explained to me the ins and outs about my case, he never let me down. I really appreciate all his services. And I recommended him to my friends who had any immigration issues.

Incredibly Helpful and Creative Attorney
Michael and his team at Serotte Law were all helpful and kept me up-to-date on my case. They came up with a solution to my issue that was much different than I expected, and it worked perfectly for me to get the appropriate work permit to work in the U.S. I would recommend Michael to anyone who needs immigration help.

Serotte Law instilled confidence while getting my desired results
I hired Serotte Law to help me get a visa to work in the U.S. Half of what they said to me seemed foreign but they took the time to explain everything and pull together an application that now has me working in a great job in the U.S.

Caring Immigration Attorney
Michael Serotte gave me great advise and helped me get a work permit. I called initially thinking I needed one type of visa but he suggested one that would give me more options in the long term and better benefit my employer. I would highly recommend him as someone who cared about my case.
