Great experience
Daniel made the extremely stressful experience of immigration a smooth, easy process. My husband and I began his immigration (spousal visa) on our own, thinking we could figure it all out without help. We quickly realized how intense it is and how little we knew, and reached out to Daniel for his advice and guidance. Daniel answered every single one of our many, many questions, and he answered them very quickly. It was clear how knowledgeable he was with every step of the immigration process and that he enjoyed doing his job. Daniel even set up a mock immigration interview, which set our minds at ease and prepared us for what to expect and what to bring to the interview. This has been a very long and overwhelming experience for my husband and I, but as soon as we reached out to Daniel, he made it all a lot less stressful and helped us through to the end. We would (and have) recommend Daniel to anyone we know going through immigration. We have nothing but positive things to say about him.

The absolute best in the business
Could not possibly recommend Daniel enough. He assisted me with a spousal-based immigration case and exceeded any expectations you could have for an immigration attorney. Daniel carefully reviewed my application paperwork, provided an in-depth practice interview, and, most importantly, was available for any and all questions I had (which, as an overthinker, was a lot). He not only did his job as a lawyer, but went the extra mile to put our minds at ease, explain the reasoning behind each of his suggestions, and showed that he truly cared about us as clients and as people in general. Another thing I appreciated about Daniel was he seems to really enjoy his work. He can rattle off answers at the snap of his fingers, and you can just tell that he cares and is passionate about his practice. He is very knowledgable and it isn’t just book-smart, but a deep understanding of the realities faced by immigrants and the kind of things they may want to know. If you have any immigration related needs, you will certainly not regret hiring Daniel.

My personal experience with Daniel Celaya
First and foremost, I wanted to give a big thank you to Daniel Celaya for helping us through my husband through his immigration issues. First Daniel was very attentive with my husband’s case from the begging to the end. Daniel would always keep us updated with any issue that we were going on with immigration. Daniel would call and/or email us. He responded promptly and professionally. He would also remind us when we had to renew my husband work permit through this 3-year process to make sure it came in on time so that my husband would not lose his job. Daniel worked very hard on our appeal in the immigration court and at the end, all his hard work showed. We won our final court! I will always be grateful to him and with his hard work. I strongly recommend him to anyone that is going through similar situation. Once again thank you so much Daniel you helped keep my family together!

Very knowledgeable and patient
I have contacted Mr. Celaya a few times regarding my immigration case/issue. he patiently replied to all my questions in details. He provided key information that the previous lawyers that I talked to did not provide such an important information. He definitely knows his job very well and very much knowledgeable in his field. I will definitely reach out to him for the future immigration cases and I recommend you to do the same if you are in the Florida.
