  • Michael Johan Melkersen

    Ofelia is a wonderful attorney who assisted our mutual client in a very difficult immigration matter. The client now has been able to become a lawful permanent resident of the United States, thanks in no small part to Ofelia's great work. I highly recommend her.

  • Andaleeb Geloo Esq.

    I give my highest endorsement to Ms. Ofelia Calderon. Ofelia is an outstanding lawyer and she has clearly earned her stellar reputation in the community as being the best of the best. I have referred some of the most complex immigration matters to Ofelia and she met every challenge with ease and alacrity. Her knowledge on immigration law is impressive, to say the least about it. She is also an exceptional litigator. Most importantly, she cares about people and their issues. She is excellence through and through and it is an honor to endorse her.
