I hired Melisa 2 years ago to help me with my immigration process and I've been extremely satisfied! She's really prepared, caring and most important, honest!
I recommended Melisa to a friend and she was also very satisfied!
She's the best choice!

Three simple words to start this review for Ms. Pena would be, professional, loyal and most important honesty. Ms. Pena truly demonstrated to us how important it is to pick the correct attorney for the case. Every step of the way Ms. Pena explained the process and not once she was incorrect, she was always on point and also very informative to ensure that we as the family could also have a peace of mind as it was a very difficult time. Her dedication and devotion ensured the freedom of our family member, but not only that it also reunited a family once again. We are very pleased to know that she accepted our case and worked with us every step of the way. It is with great pleasure to provide my highest recommendation for Ms. Pena and wish her much more success in her future endeavors.
