My family had a wonderful experience in working with Potra Law Firm. Mr Potra was very upfront about our families immigration situation from the beginning. The advice and experience brought to our case was extremely beneficial and helped expedite our case with a great victory. I would highly recommend Potra Law Firm to anyone in need of legal immigration cases.

Great
This firm is one of the few that will provide you with the truth about your situation, chances of success, and provide you with top quality legal advice, supported by more than 15 years of experience and an immpecable reputation with all judges and government officials. Every attorney working at PLF is knowledgeable, professional, and they all work as a team, along with experienced paralegals, to provide clients with the best legal services in town. Whether it's immigration, civil, or criminal case work, the team works hard, keeps clients informed at all times and strives to achieve the best end results possible on each and every case. Unlike other law firms that take on cases although chances of success are minimal and withhold this information from clients, From my experience at this office, Potra Law Firm acts with integrity and will not sign a contract unless the client is fully aware of probabilities, risks, and advantages in each case. If you're looking for a place where you are treated like family, where your case is just as important to the attorney as it is to you and your family, this is the place for you.

God fearing Attorney
I had my traffic case done in Atty. Potra's law firm and the Atty that represented me did an outstanding job on my case. I recommend his services to everyone. He is by far the only Attorney that I trust because of his honesty and also for being a God fearing man. He is also helping me adjust status for my mother and I can't wait until she becomes a legal resident of the United States. Thank you Mr. Potra for your hard work and dedication to our community

Best Immigration Lawyer - Highly Recommend - Highly Professional
If I was to name an extraordinary and highly professional lawyer, I could only name one person that impacted and change my life forever and that is Cornel Potra. He made possible for me and my family to come to the US through a permanent visa. Mr. Cornel Potra completed and presented my file to the US immigration department and to my surprise within a few months, I got approved and invited to the American embassy of my home country from where I was further approved and received the visa to move to the US with all my family. In a matter of a few months, my life completely changed and I was able to move to the US legally and permanently. He impressed me and my family with his knowledge of the law, his professionalism and love for the truth. He made my family’s dream come true and I cannot thank him enough for all the work he’s put in to make this possible. I have the highest level of respect and admiration for his person and for his act of kindness to help my family move to this great country. I highly recommend him to anyone who wants an honest, professional, knowledgeable and highly experienced lawyer. He will tell you from the beginning what are your chances for your file to be approved and won’t hide information from you for his gain. He maintains his integrity and truthfulness throughout the process. I could not be more honored to recommend Mr. Cornel Potra to anyone who has US immigration needs.

Rev. Dr. Moses Gaode
Mr. Cornel Potra and his team are outstanding and clearly some of the best in the field, based on my experience. I stared working with their office back in 2003. Throughout the course of every case I worked with, I came to know Mr. Potra is a knowledgeable and experienced attorney. Every time his approach was realistic mixed with optimism. He is efficient, responsive and a pleasure to work with. I was explained the entire, the bigger picture, before focusing on the needs and specifics of every case. I appreciate their office for being approachable, professional and desiring the success of every person. I would definitely recommend him and his office to anyone looking for an excellent immigration attorney.

Immigration Case
My wife and I came to Mr. Potra's office for an Immigration case for my father in law. Every attorney we had consulted in town, had turned us down. Mr. Potra told us to believe in God first and in his work. He took our case very serious and ask his associates attorneys to do everything an attorney can do to help us. They began to investigate and to work hard. I am today leaving this review so that people in the community would know that if they are looking for an Honest and Experience attorney, Potra Law Firm is the right place to go.

An Outstanding Law Firm
I gave this law firm 5 stars. I was introduced to this law firm by a friend for immigration matter and I've since found their services excellent. I would be pleased to recommend Potra Law firm to anybody looking for integrity based law group on immigration, criminal defense, and family related legal matters. Everyone of the team of attorneys working in this office is professionally outstanding, skillful, and experienced. They are always available to serve, they answer phone calls at one or two ring, respond to email massages in a short interval, approach cases with tenacity, and achieve unbelievable results even in difficult cases. With Potra I feel comfortable in the way and manner I was treated from the very first day I stepped into this office ( affordable service fee, being approachable, relentlessly, and availability). Indeed I do not think there is any better place, I truly feel like I'm in good hand. Lovely appreciated! Strongly approved!! Highly recommended!!!

Great experience! Recommend
We hired Mr. Potra to help us with my grandmother’s case at the beginning of the year. He was very honest and very knowledgeable about what our options were in her situation. We listened to him and she got her residence card by the end of the year! His office is very professional and gets things done in a timely manner! Thank God for a good lawyer like him!

Wonderful firm, outstanding experience
I have know Cornel several years now and know him as a community supporter and as my attorney. Cornel's integrity is above reproach. He is generous with his time, energy, and talents. His staff is capable and responsive. I would recommend this firm for any case that they deem within their skill set to accept (my case was not related to immigration).

Excellent Lawyer
We are a couple of Brazilian missionaries and we met Cornel Potra and his team of lawyers in 2013 through a friend. He helped us with our religious visa documentation (R1). We followed his guidelines and of his staff. Now we are finalizing our permanent residence (green card) and thank goodness, everything worked well with the immigration department. He and his staff have been a great blessing to me and my family, so I recommend them all for their dedication and seriousness in all cases entrusted to them. We are very grateful for all that Attorney Cornel Potra has done for us, thank you very much for everything! God bless you!

Attorney Potra has established himself in the legal community as a honest and passionate advocate for immigrants who wish to follow the American dream and build a better life for their families. Attorney Potra is well versed in immigration law, and is adept at resolving any complex immigration issues before him. Attorney Potra leaves no stone unturned when analyzing his client's immigration issues, and goes the extra mile to ensure his clients are taken care of. Attorney Potra's dedication and compassion for helping those in need knows no bounds, and I endorse him without reservation."

Relationship: Co-worker
"I work closely with Attorney Potra on all types of immigration matters. Through our interactions and shared interactions with clients, I have found Attorney Potra to possess a unique combination of tenacity and honesty that is sincerely needed in the legal community. As an immigrant himself, Attorney Potra is well versed in immigration law and adept at resolving our clients’ complex immigration issues. From the beginning of every client interaction, Attorney Potra is honest and upfront, and is passionately committed to helping the immigrant community by serving as a fierce advocate on his or her behalf before courts, USCIS, the U.S. Department of State, and other governmental agencies.

"I endorse attorney Cornel Potra for legal representation in all immigration actions. I have worked closely with him to resolve state court issues raised in immigration cases. Mr. Potra has a thorough knowledge of the law, and guides his clients through the legal process with professional skill and compassion."
Immigration Attorney | Jun 30
Relationship: Co-worker
"It has been my privilege to assist Attorney Potra with the criminal defense side of his practice over the past year. Attorney Potra is an establishment in the Georgia immigration lawyer community, and his unimpeachable honesty is highly respected by immigration judges, government officials, and fellow lawyers. After immigrating to the United States from communist Romania, Attorney Potra constructed a highly successful law practice dedicated to helping give other new immigrants the opportunity to build their own American dream. Attorney Potra honestly and pragmatically dispenses legal advice to each potential client that enters his office, never exaggerating or making unrealistic promises. Even so, Attorney Potra is willing and able to litigate many difficult, long-shot cases, and his firm often achieves results that greatly exceed the client's initial expectations. Attorney Potra is a hard-working, dedicated advocate for the immigrant community, and I endorse him without reservation."
Unknown Attorney | Jun 16
Relationship: Co-worker
"During the two years that I have worked with Attorney Potra, he has taught me so much, both about the practice of law and about immigration law in particular. Attorney Potra’s honesty, character, and compassion shine through in his interactions with clients, employees, and peers. He sets an excellent example for each of us at Potra Law Firm, and his attitude of passionate advocacy encourages and stretches us to be the best that we can be for our clients. Attorney Potra deeply cares about every person who walks into our office, whether that person comes in for a one time consultation or retains us to represent him through a longer process. He understands the hard situations that each client is going through, and he takes extra time to answer a client’s questions, analyze his case, and explain the legal process even in the case of clients for whom no relief is yet available. I have the deepest respect for Attorney Potra, and I could not ask for a better place to work than Potra Law Firm."
Unknown Attorney | Jun 05
Relationship: Co-worker
"I am one of the immigration attorneys at this firm. I have been working here since August 2012, and I love it. Attorney Potra truly cares about his clients, and it shows. In this office, we understand that most of our clients are going through some of the worst and scariest periods of their lives, and we do our best to communicate with them with understanding and compassion. We are not perfect, but we do our best. I am honored to work for someone who I respect and who I know cares about the outcomes of his cases. Immigration law is a difficult area of law, and there is not always relief available for those without status in the United States. Here, we care about being honest with those in our office. If we cannot do something to help in a case, we will not take any money from that person. I believe in Attorney Potra as an attorney and also as a person. He really does care about every person that walks through our doors."
