A Good Honest Lawyer, Definitely Recommend Mr. Guerra
Mr. Guerra is a great lawyer!! He has great hours and always answered all of my questions. He made me feel very comfortable and I felt like I picked a good lawyer that I could depend on and trust. I definitely recommend Mr. Guerra.

By far the best immigration lawyer I've had!
I recommend Luis Guerra to anyone who is looking to be represented by an honest, knowledgeable and trustworthy attorney. Over two years ago my father was taken by ICE one morning. I made a few quick calls and explained my case to at least four immigration lawyers that day, but once I spoke to Luis he gave me the peace of mind I was looking for and I hired him to represent me right away. From the beginning he gave me his realistic honest view on all aspects of my father's case. He did not sugarcoat any information or gave me false hope. He explained everything in great detail and was always very responsive on the phone and by email. The day my father had his hearing, Mr. Guerra was prepared and exposed the case confidently. That same day my father went home with me. I'm beyond thankful for all the help he provided us. He exceeded my expectations and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for an attorney with integrity and one that truly cares about his clients and their families.

From the first meeting you realize you are dealing with people of faith and as most of us know...with Faith, ANYTHING is possible! Thank you Luis and Olga for everything you have done for me and my family!

Amazing lawyer
Outstanding and amazing lawyer! I hired Luis Guerra on two specific cases for immigration for me and my finance. Both cases were complicated. I was very concerned. In addition to Luis' vast experience, he explained everything and had a huge calming effect on me and my finance. Luis was there for us 100% along the way. He was accessible at night and on the weekend as well. He is an amazing lawyer and a wonderful person as well. I highly recommend him!

Parole Approved by ICE in Mississippi
Attorney luis guerra is truly an expert lawyer!! He was able to get my family member's case approved in record time!! Other attorneys in my area would tell me not to waste my time. Out of 6 lawyers, I decided to go with MR. Guerra, and he made it happen. My girlfriend had been detained by ice for 6 months and had 3 parole request denied before attorney guerra took over. In our 1st meeting, he described my options. I went home, thought about it, and went back to his office ready to pursue one of the options he suggested. I paid him, gathered all documents he requested from me, and the rest was up to him! 2 weeks after, the package was in the mail headed to the deportation officer for review. The officer told me that out of 24 parole request, my girlfriend's had the best chance of getting approved!!! He stated to me that my attorney did a great job!! A few days later, my girlfriend was given the news that she was approved for paroleeee!!!!!! Thank you, luis, and to your staff for the professional and excellent experience delivered!!! God bless you and your firm! Your passion for immigration law, is what I believe, sets you apart from your competitors!!!!! Choose attorney luis guerra!!!! You will be giving your case, the best possible representation mlney can buy!!!!!! Alain (North miami)

Excellent service
He always was with us all the way long from the very beginning until I finally got the Permanent Resident status. The first interview with him was enough for us to decide to get along the way with him on this journey. We counted with his professionalism, counselling and support needed to present a strong case to finally accomplish our goal with the US Immigration service. Highly recommendable!

Exelente abogado
Resumiendo mi historia. Después de 12 años sin un estatus migratorio en este país, y con un anterior caso en inmigración, por miedo y otras variantes más no había sometido un nuevo caso a uscis. El año pasado me decido ya por fin hacerlo y luego de visitar 5 abogados los cuales no me convencieron del todo, un domingo por la tarde encuentro al señor Guerra por internet decido llamarlo el mismo domingo, me consulta por tel, recuerdo que me preguntara "porque había esperado tanto" que no tenía porque temer. Luego de la llamada, hago una cita personal, en la cual me doy cuenta que era la persona adecuada para llevar mi caso. Inmediatamente empezó a trabajar en el, y hoy día 10 meses después de haber empezado ese procesó que demore tanto tiempo, Gracias al señor primeramente, luego al señor Guerra soy residente permanente. Excelente profesional, excelente ser humano y persona. Agradecida infinitamente... Gracias por tanto.

Best immigration firm!!!!
Guerra Sáenz, PL law firm in my opinion. If you want the best lawyers working on your case, this is the place. Luis Guerra provides professional advices on my green card filing. He is very knowledgeable and experienced in the field. From the first conversation, he correctly predicted what to anticipate in my case. His expertise gave me confidence to continue with the firm, immediately after I talked with him. he helps me during the interview process and advises me on the process followed. He is very supportive and handles the procedure smoothly. He impressed me not only with the professionalism, but also with the art of communication as an outstanding attorney. Luis have been advising me over the course of several years on various tedious filing procedures. He is informative and supportive over a time frame of several years. Immigration process is time-consuming, and Luis support is very consistent and reliable. This firm is a good, professional and very outstanding leadership. I wish that I came to Guerra Sáenz firm earlier for professional assistance. That could have saved tons of sleepless nights and grey hairs. I am glad I did when I was referred by a lawyer friend a few years ago. Thank you Nadya

Phenomenal Lawyer, couldn't have asked for someone better.
Mr. Guerra handled my case to have me deported. He was referred to me by another outstanding lawyer that resolved some of my legal issues in 2011. All in all, Mr. Guerra walked me step by step on what the possibilities were, how the case looked and assured me nothing but the best on his part. There were times that I was a bit skeptical but Mr. Guerra always helped me level headed and kept guiding me through the open case to have me deported from the United States. When it came to the court date, his ability to lead within the courtroom reassured me that he was the best man for the job. I wish nothing but the best for him, and if anyone ever needs any immigration or a criminal defense attorney, I would highly recommend Mr. Guerra.
