I highly recommend Maribel LaFontaine and her paralegal Cindy Melendez because throughout my case they were very helpfully and straightforward with how my cause was going to go about. When I had any concerns they would always be available to speak to me personally and answer any questions I had. I have to say that I for any reasons I would need there services again I would hired because of how well they treated me and worked on my case.

My immigration history has been nothing short of a complicated DISASTER!!! I was very skeptical and uneasy about filing anymore paperwork given my past experiences. However Ms. LaFontaine and her staff was upfront with me about my case and worked diligently to yield the results I desired! The legal assistant Tanya was very polite, helpful, and resourceful as she worked diligently to put all the evidence I gathered for my packet together. Within a week of the response deadline, I received a letter letting me know my DACA was approved followed by my card a few days later. I couldn't be more relieved, greatful, and thankful for the professionalism and diligence to my case this firm displayed! I would recommend them to anyone seeking THE BEST for all immigration needs!

My immigration case was a little complicated, i had waited but there was no response from the immigration office. i searched for immigration attorney online and consulted a few of them. Amongst a few i consulted was Attorney Maribel LaFontaine. From the time i spoke with her (Free consultation) in her office i felt like i may hire her. So i got home that day and together with my wife, we decided to hire attorney Maribel LaFontaine. Together with her lead Paralegal, she worked closely with me to see that my case was successful. She is so professional and took her time to explain every immigration process to me. Her nice and lead Paralegal (Jacky) was also professional. She never hesitated to explain immigration processes and all my worries regarding my case.
At the end of the day, Attorney Maribel LaFontaine did a great job at all angles because my Greencard was approved and today i am a permanent resident. Thank you Ms Maribel LaFontaine and God bless you and your legal team.
