I am a North Carolina Board Certified Specialist in Immigration Law (one of only thirty-one in the state). I graduated with Honors from the University of North Carolina School of Law in 2009 and have over six years of full-time immigration law experience. I love my job because on a daily basis I work closely with families, businesses, and individuals to make an otherwise intimidating immigration process smooth and worry-free. I approach each case with honesty and integrity and will work diligently to achieve a favorable outcome for each client.

Great help on H1B case.
Great help on my H1B case. As far as me, he only asked necessary questions so I have time focusing on my job. I believe my major is not what he usually works on but it still worked. He has been helpful by responding my Email on time.

A Godsend
Jack Rockers was a godsend. My husband and I initially contacted two other attorneys to help us navigate the process involved in changing my husband’s immigration status from TN to green card, and we were feeling demoralized by our experiences. The first attorney was nonresponsive; the second was ill informed and exploitative. Soon after we had consulted the second attorney, an acquaintance of mine recommended Jack. He was the perfect fit for us: friendly and accessible, professional and easygoing. His fee was reasonable, and being able to rely on him in helping us prepare and submit our application eased the stress and sense of uncertainty that my husband and I were feeling. We placed our trust in Jack, and he did not disappoint. Our initial meeting with him was on May 22, our application was finalized and mailed by June 12, and my husband was granted his green card on September 10. With each development along the way, the support staff at Hatch Law Office kept in prompt and constant touch. Moreover, Jack was honest with me when I asked if he thought my husband and I needed him to accompany us to our interview at the local USCIS office. He said that because our case was straightforward and we were so well organized and informed, he did not believe we needed to spend the extra money to have him accompany us. And he was right. I appreciate Jack’s integrity, and I strongly recommend him as an immigration attorney.

A satisfy client
A good lawyer is one who points out the negatives along with the positives. Your lawyer should be objective and give you an honest appraisal of your case. I found my lawyer Mr. Rockers he help me out with a very unique immigration situation. I can not thank Mr.Rockers enough for his help. I strongly recommend you Mr. Rockers.

Permanent Residency
Hi all, my name is Sean. My wife and I had a chance to work with John. We are very pleased and happy with the quality, dedication, and timeliness of his work. He was a big help in the process of obtaining a Permanent Residency for my wife's complicated case. Thanks for all your help John.

Smart, caring, and above all knowledgeable
Jack is a fantastic attorney. My husband and I needed an attorney to help our marriage visa go smoothly. I was a stressed out ball of nerves but Jack handled everything with competence and compassion so that I could worry less, and focus on enjoying my new marriage. He explained things to us clearly, concisely, and in a way I could understand. He returned calls and emails faster than I would have expected, and he never made me feel like a nuisance. He is a great attorney and we were lucky to have him on our case. Thank you Jack for helping my husband and I stay our life on the right note!
