Seriosity, Hard Work and Results focused!!!!!
I hired Lee & Peynado Immigration Law Group after a big disappointment with a big name immigration lawyer in town(my lesson: don't rush to fall for their "marketing"; the big ones are too big to care most of the time. Not all but, that was my case). Their horrible work on my case was so bad that, what it should have been an easy journey, became a nightmare and a scary stressful situation: we got a NOID. I fired them right away and I was looking for a better, closer to his clients, experienced attorney. I interviewed about 4-5 attorneys until I met Mr. Lee and Jordanne. From the start Mr. Lee stood out with his patience to go over the case with me and answer all my concerns. When I met Jordanne too - I was 100% sure that this team is the best I could have on my side. Mr. Lee has a lot of experience due to his 40 years in the field and Jordanne.. she is just the most hardworking, organized and amazing trooper you can ask for. She is really good, passionate and energic about what she does. I had many questions and she NEVER was late to answer and explain all the process along. She would go up and beyond to find the best strategy you can get to win your case. The way I think about her and Lee & Peynado Law Group is "UNLIKE A SPIDER": a spider stay within its web, waiting. These people go outside the web to provide you with their best service. Immigration process can be a stressful and scary process. The Lee & Peynado Immigration Law Group is your best friend to guide you and fight for you. Trough my direct experience, I recommend them 100%!!! P.S.: they overturned a complicated NOID in just 17 days!!!

Really smart immigration attorney
Lawyer lee helped me tremendously. Other attorneys talked and talked and talked about everything they were going to do for me and nothing. Lee doesn't really talk much but he always delivers because of him, I hired him when I was here illegally and he got me my green card and now I am now a us citizen. I have referred other clients to him and they all say great things about their experience with him and the lawfirm. I highly recommend him and I am grateful that I went to see him. My family thanks you and I thank you.

Excellent experience when changing immigration status
The company I work for, a Swedish corporation establishing operation in the US, consulted Mr Lee to manage our immigration transition to permanent resident status in the US. The process was all we could have wished for: quick, responsive, and successful. Whenever we needed help filling out documentation or had questions we received support faster than I have experienced with any other law firm. It made the pace of the process depend on how fast I could complete the documentation required. We had heard from many people that it would take a long time to process this type of application, so we were somewhat surprised when he estimated the processing time. In the end, the information Mr Lee provided was accurate, and it turned out exactly the way he communicated when we started the process. I would without hesitation recommend Mr Lee, and I will consult him for future legal matters. The Swedish corporation I work for has continued to use him for other applications as well, which have also been processed with the same accuracy.

Absolutley the best Immigration Lawyer
George Lee handled my wifes K1 Visa overstay case with razor sharp precision, impecable timing and absolute professionalism. He handled our voluntary departure perfectly and wrote an impressive i-601 waiver that the consulate called a "book" because of its thorough detail and concise information. The end result was fantastic as my family was back home in the US much sooner than most cases I read about. He was reassuring during my family crisis and always responded with updates often. I couldnt have been happier with Lee Immigration and their staff and would absolutley recommend using them as YOUR immigration legal team..

Great Immigration Lawyer
Mr. Lee is a highly experienced immigration lawyer whom you can trust. Our family could not be happier with his help handling our immigration documents. He got the job done for us in a timely manner. I recommend Mr. Lee to anyone who needs a good immigration lawyer.

I don't think there is better immigration lawyer in Atlanta area
First off all I'm thankful Mr. Lee event took my case which was a 10 year dragging disaster. Let me just say my first "lawyer" is still in jail and since then I've tried several lawyers. After I've started working with Mr. Lee in Sept 2011 things got much better and I've got my green card in April 2012. I just cannot thank him enough. It seems that he knows ALL the right people in the industry and it is really important in my opinion. I have half a dozen friends that that used him and everybody had excellent experience. If any of friends ever asks me who to see about the immigration matter, I know exactly who to recommend - Mr. Lee.

Mr. Lee can make the impossible happen!
Mr. Lee is not the type to talk your ear off and sell you false dreams, which in the beginning was exactly what me and my family wanted from a lawyer to help calm our nerves but the results speak for themselves. Mr. Lee was able to get my uncle out of removal proceedings with a really bad criminal record. The judge even mentioned how lucky my uncle was to have Mr. Lee representing him and I agree. The man knows immigration and cared more about my uncle's case than any other lawyer previously involved in the case. My uncle is now here as a permanent resident and It was all because of Mr. Lee. I will forever be in debt to him.

Dr. Lee is the best!!!
Dr. Lee was so helpful to me and my family. Two of my friends sent me to him and I am so glad they did. If he hadn't helped me I would not have been able to see my husband again. The immigrations people said he should be deported but Dr. Lee proved them wrong. My husband is now back home with me and my kids. I can never thank him enough for all he did for me and my family

Great Attorney ! Does what he promises !
Mr. Lee does not talk much . He just tells you what he is going to do and he does it. He helped my husband with an immigration matter and did a wonderful job ... Most lawyers talk alot . I guess to " sell themselves to you" .. Mr.Lee is more straight foward and gets the job done. I would definately recomend him for immigration matters !
