  • Brandon Cory Goldberg

    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.
