My husband Visa/Green Card
Just wanted to express my gratitude to the entire staff at Law Santos Group for the intensive immigration process that was successfully compleated with a positive outcome for us. A special thanks to Angie Suaza for her professionalism, knowledgeable about immigration law, for her attention to details that was very important to this intensive paperwork, for her extensive work and following with us every time we had a question, and for her patient that provides us comfort when you do this kind of process. Thanks, so much to all and many blessing to the Law Group. The Fernandez Family

Friendly, Professional, Successful.
My Wife and I hired Santos Law Group to help with my Green Card application. They were well organised and professional. Given how stressful the process can be we had many questions and often called or visited their office; Kevin and Maite always had the right answer and always put us at ease. We made the decision to have Kevin present at the interview as well. His relaxed demeanour helped calm our nerves and we felt reassured knowing he had all the necessary paperwork in case we had forgotten anything. The entire process took from application to approval, only 5 months which we credit in part to Santos Law Group for their organisational and personal skills.

Relentlessly Hard Working Lawyer
Went thru 3 lawyers and alot of money for my wife's legal status. He is the only one that was completely positive thru the whole process and assured the results we wanted would happen. Fixed 2 difficult issues that all other lawyers we dealt with kept ducking money out of us with no head way. Very reasonable, helpful and honest. He literally changed our family's life for the better.

Santos was my lawyer after I had a very bad interview with immigration. My husband and I hired him he advice us very well and represents us very well and now I have my green card and moving forward. Very good lawyer I would recommend him to any one with immigration issues. He is very thorough with his information and let you be more understanding of the immigration process . Now I have my green card thanks to Santos law group my husband and I are very happy now after after that horrible first interview with immigration.

Highly recommend!
We had a criminal matter issue in which Attorney Santos took over the last portion of from our previous lawyer who we were unhappy with. Attorney Santos answered any and all questions we had and made us feel very at ease, he grasped the circumstances very well and we felt very confident having him as our attorney. He had a less than a month to prepare and he did so very quickly and thoroughly! The morning of the court date we were so nervous but he reassured us and went over our defense one more time, he even arrived early and consulted with the court house on our behalf! His dedication, professionalism and compassion is incredible! Thank you so much! I urge anyone who is in search of a lawyer to contact Attorney Santos. Him and his staff are amazing people!

Great Lawyer - highly recommend!
Atty. Santos helped my mom with a complex immigration issue with confidence and ease. She was able to get her green card despite having lived in several states since the last renewal. His staff is courteous and friendly. Everything was handled by him personally. I always felt like we were the most important people in the room. Thank you, Kevin!

Employee Resolution
Kevin Santos is not only an experienced and knowledgeable attorney, but is also a champion for "the little guy". He and his team advised me on an employment issue which was a bit complicated but they were firm in their conviction and stood by my side. They empowered me with my rights as an employee and helped me resolve my issue with my employer. What they gave me was a priceless lesson in standing up for myself and the ability to stand my ground. Kevin is very passionate about his work and taking care of his clients. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants someone who cares in their corner.

Very professional and knowledgeable
Mr. Santos is very responsible and you would feel very comfortable to trust him. I've consulted with many other lawyers before him and he is the only one and also the last one that I would stop with. The reason is that he can answer questions in a very detailed and clear way. I have a question that all the other lawyers' answers are either 'Yes, you'll be fine. there's no problem' or 'No, you will have trouble. It's not a good idea.' It's not actually complicated. But, Mr. Santos is the only attorney explains the scenario and reasons to me. I stopped searching around and followed his instructions. My case has both criminal law and immigration law involved. It is great to have Mr. Santos who knows both sides. He is extremely helpful. I recommend him to anyone in need of assistance.
