Professional, caring and courteous
I have hired Rebeca for two processes now, my citizenship and my wife's petition. I have found a very professional lawyer that explains in detail the process, the pros and cons of what is to come, and the recommendations of what needs to be done. In each case, she gave me a detailed todo list and helped me with any questions throughout the process. She has as her priority to help those of low income and even though I did not qualify for the support, she did explain to us how it works, nevertheless, I had the benefit of the translations which are included in the package price and that ended being very cheap for me. I highly recommend Rebeca and the Salmon firm, everyone in the firm was courteous and demonstrated that they did care for my case. We receive notifications during the process so we did not have to worry for the time passing by,

Seamless adoption
Rebeca Salmon truly is fantastic! Not only did she hear our story and support our decision wholeheartedly, she went above and beyond to push our son's adoption through during the shut down and in a timely fashion because he was joining the Marines. She understood how important it was for us to be able to send him off with the security of being able to come home to his forever family and did everything she could to make it happen. Because of Rebeca Salmon and her team, our family now has the security of his adoption being finalized as he begins the next phase of his journey serving for our country. For that, we will be forever thankful.

Abogada
Hola yo eh tenido oportunidad de haberme cruzado con la oficina de Rebeca Salmon y a sido lo mejor que me pudo pasar . Yo tenia desde el 2012 con orden de deportacion y por lo que batalle para encontrar representacion se que mi caso era extremadamente dificil. Ya que cada abogado/a que buscaba me decia que era imposible ayudarme. Incluso una abogada falsamente tomo mi caso sabiendo que las “aplicaciones” por las que me cobro yo de ninguna manera calificaba. Haci que le page bastante dinero y estuve a punto de ser deportada. Una amiga me comento que talves con Rebeca Salmon podria saber si en realidad tenia oh no opcion. Aqui me encontre con todo personal que solo busca lo mejor para uno. Claramente me dieron un “uff” me dijo es super dificil pero podremos intentar..Rebeca a sido dedicada con mi caso 100% peleo la felonia que tenia asta que se me fue removida ya que fue erronia. Estaba deportada desde 2013 ya mi caso estaba cerrado pero por mi niño descapacitado pudimos ganar tiempo para yegar asta ahora. En 2015 ella tomo mi caso y ahora hemos llegado tan lejos. Lo primero fue ayudarme a conseguir mi permiso de trabajo. Al mismo tiempo varias renovaciones para extender mi tiempo y seguir luchando. Mientras peleanamos en Gwinnett County para remover mi cargo ya que con eso nunca podria avanzar mi caso de imigracion. En Noviembre del año pasado finalmente fue removido. Sin perder tiempo metio mi peticion para volver abrir mi caso de imigracion. Lo cual gracias a Dios en Enero nos lo abrieron. Y ahora solo esperamos mi cancelacion de deportacion for medios extremos osea en mi caso es mi niño. En esta oficina todo el personal es super eficiente. Justamente me toca otra ves renovar mi permiso de trabajo y estan muy atentos a llamar para empesar el proceso con tiempo para que alcanse a yegar antes del vencimiento del anterior. Aqui lo tratan a uno como familia y para ellis el bienestar de sus clientes es lo mas importante. Aqui se habla español e ingles para que uno se sienta mas tranquilo en cuestion de comunicacion!! Toda mi familia y yo siempre estaremos agradecidos con el empeño que an tomado mi caso.

Response from Rebeca Salmon July 10, 2020
Lia como siempre ayundando ustead es un placer! ...English: Lia, like always helping you is a pleasure. Hi, I have had the opportunity to come across Rebeca Salmon's office and it was the best thing that could have happened to me. I had a deportation order since 2012 and I struggled to find representation. I knew that my case was extremely difficult because every lawyer I saw told me that it was impossible to help me. Even a lawyer falsely took my case knowing that I did not qualify at all for the "applications" yet she charged me. I paid her a lot of money and I was almost deported. A friend told me that maybe with Rebeca Salmon I would find out if I really had any options. I met all the staff who only want the best for you. Clearly, they gave me a "phew!", she told me it was super hard but we can try... Rebeca has been 100% dedicated to my case. She fought the felony that I had until it was removed because it was wrong. I had been deported since 2013 and my case was closed but because of my disabled child we were able to buy more time to this day. In 2015 she took my case and now we have come so far. The first thing was to help me get my work permit. At the same time several renewals to extend my time and continue fighting. While we fought in Gwinnett County to have my charge removed because with it, my immigration case would never advance. In November of last year, it was finally removed. Without wasting time, she filed my application to re-open my immigration case. Which thank God in January they opened it for us. And now we are only waiting for my cancellation of deportation for extreme hardships, in my case it is because of my child. In this office all the staff is super-efficient. I just had to renew my work permit again and they are very attentive to call and start the process with time so that they can send it before the expiration of the previous one. Here they treat you like family and the well-being of their clients is the most important thing for them. Here they speak Spanish and English so that you can feel better when it comes to communication! My family and I will always be grateful for all the effort they have made in my case.

The most amazing Lawyer and Team!
Rebeca and her staff have helped my whole family through our immigration process. She is a highly professional and caring attorney. She is also very knowledgable and knows the law very well. She has worked hard for me and my mother and we are now citizens of the United States. She has helped with divorce cases in my family and legal prosecutions . Rebeca and her team make us feel valued and cared for and that is very appreciate it. She is highly trained and works very hard for her clients. Her team is outstanding. They are a family that work together to insure the best for their clients. Danielle is always striving for the best for her clients and I love the work she has done for my fathers case. Danielle and Evelyn have worked diligently on a promising case and I feel as if they have put their all into the case. Camila is by far one of the nicest and most applied team members, she is always there to help, answers emails promptly and strives for fast results, sharing concerns to the attorneys. Veronica has also been very helpful ad is always there when you call. I can not recommend Rebeca and her team enough. She is the perfect example of empowerment for women. She works hard, cares for your case and you and strives for the best always. She is always professional but makes you feel valued. We love Rebeca and her team, they have done nothing but help my family and this will be for ever cherished. AMAZING ATTORNEY AND TEAM!

Enilia
Ms.Salmon and her entire staff were wonderful! Divorce is a difficult transition in your life especially when children are involved. In my case that’s what was of my upmost concern. Ms. Salmon was very professional unlike opposing counsel who approached me concerning our case at my place of employment. I definitely recommend Rebeca Salmon if you are in need of counsel.

Enilia, There's no way to control opposing counsel - unfortunately; however, you handled yourself with dignity and grace throughout this entire case and for that you are a shinning example for your children. Thank you for the trust you placed in our team.

My Angle!
Attorney Rebeca is more than a lawyer for me. With great confidence, I can say she is my angle. Rebeca is exceptionally professional of what she does and knows the law very well. Honesty, reliability and hard work is a basic definition for her professional character. I have never seen anyone with professional ethics and confidence as attorney Rebeca. She is always an email away and available when I needed her for my case. I was lost and helpless when I hired attorney Rebeca. Today, thanks to her sound advise and prompt action, I am full of confidence and focused on my personal development. I am forever indebted for what she has done for me. Thank you attorney Rebeca for everything you have done for me and God bless you!

Amazing! Incredible!
Ms. Salmon was very easy to reach, on time and she knows her stuff. She made my divorce quick and painless. I would highly highly recommend her to anyone having legal issues.
Response from Rebeca Salmon February 5, 2016
Jill, It was a sincere pleasure to help you and your boys navigate what was a very amicable separation and divorce. I love when I get to work with parents that stay focused on the best interest of the children and are able to set aside their own frustrations. I wish you all the best for a happy life :)

Non-judgmental, unbiased, sincere advice
I went to Rebecca because I needed help with fighting the decision of immigration with regards to my status. The school I had attended terminated my status without my knowledge and for reasons that were beyond my control. Rebecca assisted me in getting my appeal reopened, but immigration still was not satisfied. At this point, I was extremely disillusioned and depressed about my situation. Rebecca offered the best advice to me. I did what she suggested and months later, I became a Permanent Resident. I am greatful for her sincere, non-judgmental, and truly sincere advice. She gave it to me straight, no bull. I would definitely recommend anyone with immigration issues to her.

You definitley get what you pay for!
This is the lawyer you need in your corner to handle all of you NCIS problems. I can not express how good this lawyer is. She will always keep your best interests first. She is very precise. I had multiple charges against me, Ms. Salmon defended me with great confidence. I can not tell you how great full I am for her services. Rebeca's staff was so kind to me and my wife. I dealt with Cammila, her secretary who is the best! She would call me to inform me all the time. She handled my family and I with loving care. Rebeca had another lawyer start my case and she was not the caliber of a lawyer needed for my case since it was to overwhelming. Once Rebeca was informed of the problems we were having with this associate, she stepped in and took over and became victorious. I was very thrilled that this attorney also does pro-bono work and helps a lot of people who can not afford to pay for proper legal representation. My God supplied this attorney to me, she came highly recommended and we asked three different government agencies and all three of them recommended her services. Since the number 3 in God's number meaning the Trinity. We knew she was the one for me. My God also provided the money to pay for her services, $21,500.00. I can not Thank Ms. Salmon enough for what she has done for me and my family. Please feel free to call me anytime for a reference. 678-699-6560. I pray she continues to give people a real fighting chance.

Thank you Peter for your kind words of appreciation. The entire team here sincerely celebrates the success of your case as you are so very deserving! Yes, your case was far above the average cost of most of our clients (due to the complexity of your legal issues);however, know that a great portion of your fees went to our sister agency: Access To Law, and allowed our skilled attorneys the flexibility to represent several kids before these same harsh immigration judges - probono! So Thank you again and we wish you continued success as a naturalized citizen :)

From Lawyer to friend to family, if anyone can help is Rebeca Salmon
It would be fair to say that my immigration case was near to impossible to resolve, the intricacy of it would’ve challenge even the brightest of lawyers and in fact did, many of the ones I try to hire to help me with my case turned it down on the basis of its difficulty but not Rebeca, she welcomed it with open arms, she was more than willing to take it on with the assurance and the promise that she would go and do what she needed to do to help me and my children, even though it was an extensive and long process her performance was flawless, she delivered what she promised and more, her team was a vital part of the result as well, her level of expertise combined with her wit and compassion for her clients is outstanding, that is what made all the difference, she became a friend and I would say at this point even part of our family, now that I’m a permanent resident of the U.S. I’m immensely grateful with God for giving Rebeca all the qualities, skills and values that she possesses because without her I would not be here with my children today. In all my experiences dealing with legal service providers not one come close to what I have experienced with Rebeca, she is one of a kind, contrasting my own experience with the few negative reviews here I can only infer that those comments come from people who does not know Rebeca and her team personally, I highly recommend Rebeca and her team “A Salmon Firm” for any and all your legal needs. Thank you so much Rebeca and I look forward to hire you again when the time comes for me to become a U.S. Citizen!

Committed Advocate for Immigrant Kids
I am a social worker with immigrant minors and have worked with Rebecca Salmon and Access to Law on a number of juvenile immigration cases for asylum and SIJS. Through these experiences, I trust that she is an expert at navigating the juvenile and immigration law and a compassionate advocate for these kids and their families. Her team at Access to Law shows great committment to their clients and does great work. I would recommend her to anyone looking for an immigration attorney, especially for a minor.
