Amazing, Skillful and "Got Your Back" Immigration Lawyer
Mr. Castaneda, Mr. Rojas and their team will go to bat for you and will "fight" "tooth and nail" to help you with your legal conundrum. Even though, I had never physically met them and all our interactions were via telephone, they did not waver and kept their word to see it through. If you need an attorney that is versed with law, works diligently and will "keep it real" with you: I recommend their firm. They are "miracle" workers and worth hiring. And Yes, they won my case on during the first trial!

The Best Lawyer
I was introduced to Scott D. Pollock by one of my friend to address my immigration case, and I am happy with the result. I met Dario Castaneda after talking with Scott, Dario walked me through the entire process, helped me preparing the case in all possible ways, giving me priceless professional advice, made me feel confident and finally won the case! In my opinion, he is practicing the law with highest standard and always bring professional advantage to the clients. I also appreciate Araceli for helping me preparing the document work and coordinating with various tasks. The cost is a steal for such a team and services I got, If anyone has an immigration related case, I would definitely recommend Dario Castaneda and Scott D. Pollock & Associates, P.C!

Excellent Service
Dario and his assistant Jose were fantastic in terms of helping me with a case concerning an F-1 visa issue. They fully explained all possibilities which allowed me to make informed decisions. They prepared documents swiftly and coached me ahead of my interview. Dario appears to have great experience in this field and does everything he can to aid his clients.

Amazing attorney
I just want to start off by saying how thankful and blessed I was for coming across Dario and his whole attorney team. Dario helped my husband with receiving his citizenship a few weeks back, it was stressful for us due to my husband having a background many years back but Dario fought for us and helped push everything thru and made it as stress free as possible. He was always so understanding and explained everything so thoroughly. I would highly recommend him!

Our experience working with Dario
Dario helped us get my green card , work authorization and visa. He and his assistant helped us through each step of the process : phone calls, emails and meetings. Moreover, even if he always stayed very professional, we could see that he was showing empathy for us. We would recommend him for any emigration work.

Dario and everyone at his firm did an incredible job with our case which had a positive outcome. He immediately put our mind at ease with excellent consultation. He filed the forms in an incredible timely and thorough manner. He followed up immediately when the government responded. And he coached us before our interview which made everything easier. I would recommend him to anyone who has an immigration issue.
