Conversation with peter was very helpful .he was quickly able to understand my issue and helped me with all the queries and clarifications.he listened to my case clearly and gave really good advise and suggestion. I reccomend his expertise to others who seek immigration related advise
Posted by Zahid
Very responsive, extremely accessible and great advise. Peter is very knowledgeable not only about the immigration laws but also about the local immigration office mechanics and dos and don't which is very helpful.
I am also quite impressed to get prompt responses from him whenever I emailed or called Peter. With other law offices, usually one gets the legal aid who responds first or screen client's inquiries which makes it difficult to reach the attorney unless its an extremely important inquiry/issue needing attorney's attention. But Peter is always the one who responds and responds promptly. I prefer to talk to my attorney when I need a response and I got that here. I am also thankful to him for answering my questions even my CR1 process was completed. Peter is under no obligation to answer my questions after CR1 task was completed but he still answers my questions and I truly appreciate that.
I will highly recommend him to others needing a personalized and reliable help for all immigration needs.

I have had the fortunate opportunity to know Peter Acker for many years. I have always been impressed with the approach he took in creating and succeeding in his immigration law practice. His ability to understand the needs of his clients is unparalleled, and his knowledge of the immigration system comes from years of hard-earned experience. Anyone needing immigration legal services would be well advised to meet with Peter.
