Carlos Sandoval and his team are ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE and PROFESSIONAL. My case just took 5 months. I have no words to describe how grateful and happy I am to have trusted his experience as an immigration lawyer.

Recomendable al 120%
Luego de hacer una extensiva búsqueda online y llamar a varios estudios de abogados, nos decidimos por la firma del Dr. Carlos Enrique Sandoval. ¿Por qué? Para empezar, desde que responden el teléfono la atención es A1. Marielisa (Directora de atención al cliente) le hace honor a su cargo, es excelente (no estamos exagerando). El Dr. Sandoval es un excelente profesional. Es amable, sincero, confiable, honesto y conoce al 100% las leyes de este país. Lo que más nos gustó y que nadie hace (esto es comprobado ya que como mencionamos líneas arriba, llamamos a muchos lugares). El mismo nos devolvió la llamada y absolvió todas las dudas que teníamos. Nos dio mucha tranquilidad la seguridad y confianza que demostraba acerca de sus conocimientos sobre el sistema migratorio. Nosotros presentamos una solicitud de cambio de estatus y petición por matrimonio. Nuestro caso fue aprobado sin problema alguno en tiempo record (2 meses y medio). Sabemos que no todos los casos son iguales pero el nuestro fue un proceso sin dificultad. No tenemos más que cosas buenas por decir sobre todo su equipo de trabajo (un equipo que te acompaña a lo largo de todo el proceso manteniendo una comunicación constante). Realmente una experiencia increíble de principio a fin. Recomendamos su estudio de abogados a ojos cerrados.

H1B and Green Card Process
This is the right place if you are looking for the right Immigration Lawyer team. Over the time period of my process they always call me back, They were always open to listen to my situation. One of the best things was how clearly the team communicates the options for your own case. Very professional. Carlos Sandoval handled my H1B Visa and also my green card process. Marielisa was so amazing, She called, emailed and always provided any information from my case. For all these and much more I highly recommend this office to everyone. In my complex case they proved how knowledgeable and experienced they were by building strong case for positive results.

Really great
Carlos took care of my kids and husband citizenships. A good thing about him is that he is always available. If he can not take your call at the moment he will call you back soon. He and his team answered all my questions and prepared us for the interview. Everything went fine and now my family lives here legally. I recommend his office, even if you don’t live at the same city. We live in Orlando and calls and meetings online worked fine.
