Excellent Attorney
I usually don't leave reviews unless I'm extremely pleased with a job well done. A year ago, I felt hopeless, overwhelmed but i was still holding on until i was referred to Tracie and her awesome team. All am gonna say is, if you're reading this and currently feeling overwhelmed, stop searching and do yourself a favor and pay Tracie a visit, just one visit i assure you. They genuinely care and they're the BEST

Professional Expert
We recently used Klinke Immigration to assist us with a minor child application that was being held up in the system and had huge anxiety over our child ageing out. The advice and expertise we received was worth every cent and I would recommend this law firm for your immigration needs.

Best law firm in Atlanta
We worked with Klinke Immigration, Paula Molano specifically, in order to help with my wife's immigration process. She was incredibly organized, and did a great job helping us navigate our legal blind spots. She was also really patient with our many questions. Thank you so much you guys!

Immigration Process a Breeze with Tracie!
I cannot praise Tracie highly enough. We were scheduled for our final interview, and Tracie and her staff were calm, measured, and very reassuring. We had to change attorneys midway through the process (through no fault of our former excellent attorney) and Tracie picked up our case with no problems. The journey to citizenship from immigrant was almost 5 years. We were subject to more than a few bureaucratic hassles. Tracie was always there to help and smooth things over. Thanks, Tracie!

Amazing!
Tracie was referred to me by an attorney who worked for a nonprofit organization when my case could not be handled by them. She was retained for my Greencard application through VAWA. Tracy and her practice were responsive, proactive, knowledgeable, strategic, and most importantly honest. She provided me excellent service with integrity. I'm so happy I found her!

Tracie is the BEST out there!!!
The day I walked into her office and had a consultation with her, I hired her instantly because I began to feel hope and see a light at the end of the tunnel. Having done business with other "attorney's" previously and had my GC application denied. I could see and perceive the difference with Attorney Tracie, she's EXTREMELY KNOWLEDGEABLE and put a personal touch in dealing with my case, plus she knows exactly what she's doing and she has a very functional team. I call her my (Angel). If you have any immigration case and need the best lawyer Plssssss go to Tracie (Klinke Immigration), she will treat your case with utmost importance and you will have a testimony just like me.

Seamless and Way beyond expectations
Regardless of what you have to apply for, the whole immigration process can be daunting, intimidating and stressful. Tracie expresses on her website that her team tries to take the intimidation out of the process and that's exactly what she does. At all times in our process the expectations were not only met but they were surpassed above and beyond. She explains everything so clearly and in our case that's exactly what happened. No surprises. She managed to minimized our stress and help us achieve what we were set out to do. We would highly recommend Tracie to anybody that is looking for stellar legal representation. And she has tremendous experience working with LGBT couples. The fact that she answers your emails so promptly every time you have a question or concern, shows how caring and dedicated she is to her clients. If you're looking for representation I would highly recommend you to hire Tracie and her team.

Excellent team
My experience with Tracie and her team was great. She is a very knowledgeable attorney and she and her team handled my case in the correct way. I had no issues or any request from the immigration for any additional documents while cooperating with Tracie's office. Her senior paralegal Rosa Medina was very helpful while I was working with her to collect all the necessary documents and she would advise me correctly and always on time. Her secretary Alina Luna was very good too and any time I had to email her to schedule an appointment she would reply me within an hour. My experience with Tracie was great too and she would reply to all of the queries that I had.. I am happy that I chose that office for my case and I would highly recommend them to anyone

Awesome lawyer would definitely recommend their services. They are a great group I had representing me in my Jay Treaty case. Very knowledge in the Jay Treaty background which is very hard to find in the Atlanta area. Always kept me up to date on the status of my case. I would definitely rate their service 5 STARS!! Thanks again.
