Practice areas
  1. Immigration
    70%
    I primarily deal with family immigration, though I have a good deal of experience in criminal immigration matters as well as business immigration law. Naturalization is also an integral part of my practice. Have an additional 4 years of experience previous to law practice as an immigration law clerk and as a Citizenship Instructor.

    20 years

  2. Commercial real estate
    20%
    Representing lender in large commercial real estate transactions between $6,000,000 and $100,000,000. Drafting loan documents involving non-recourse loans for investment in purchase or refinance of commercial properties.

    2 years

  3. Contracts and agreements
    5%
    I enjoy drafting and reviewing contracts and agreements. I particularly like writing in plain legal English because often disputes that do not settle will end up before a jury of non-lawyers. If they can understand, then my clients most likely win. Of course, the goal is to have such a clear agreement that there never is a dispute.

    20 years

  4. Mediation
    5%
    Florida Supreme Court Certified Circuit Civil Mediator Foreclosure Mediation Certified

    14 years

I offer economic solutions for immigration review and guidance, primarily for Adjustment of Status to U.S. Lawful Permanent Residency, Removal of Conditions on Conditional U.S. Lawful Permanent Residencies, and Naturalization cases. I also broker and represent short-term (3, 5, or 10+ year) interest-only, non-recourse commercial real estate loans for refinancing or purchase between $6,000,000 and $100,000,000+.  Additionally, I offer Mediation services for civil, family, and appellate disputes.  If interested, please contact me through AVVO or email at [email protected]

I became interested in U.S. immigration law when I was in law school over 20 years ago. Since then, I have over 25 years of experience in U.S. immigration (including time as a U.S. Citizenship instructor while in law school) and have also accrued experience in various areas such as contract drafting and review, mediations, personal injury, and commercial real estate transactions.

Great Honest Lawyer
If you are looking for a great honest attorney with immigration experience Guillermo Is your guy. He does what needs to get done and he is very honest and has very high ethical standards. He could of charged me for a piece of work, instead he advised me to go forward without him as there was no risk going forward without his representation. Very rare to see that in today’s society.

Great Experience
I contacted Guillermo in 2015 after I met my wife and decided to get married. I asked Guillermo if I could marry my wife even though she had been in the U.S. for 5 years and her Visa was expired. He said no problem if we have a legitimate marriage and we are in love we can adjust status and get a green card. Today my wife got notice that her green card was being produced. Guillermo was great support and I can't say enough about all he did for me and my wife. I would highly recommend him to anyone dealing with immigration issues.

Reference for Guillermo
I had an opportunity to work with Guillermo on my case. He is extremely talented and very knowledgeable individual in his stream of work. I had consulted many lawyers prior to reaching out to him and I got a good run around with no clear answers what so ever. I was also getting quoted for some ridiculous amount of fee without evening knowing what the lawyer could do for me in my case. I guess these days what lawyers do is really scare you first and try to extract hefty fee out of you that seems to me simply ridiculous practice.…!!! Guillermo answered all my questions that I had; he gave a clear picture of what is going on and how he can help me out in my case. He is a friendly person to work with and more important he will make you feel comfortable and at ease about your case without any horror stories! He is also very fair and reasonable is his dealing and pricing. He quoted me a fee that was fair and within my means. He knows about all the forms and paperwork to be filled out helps you to understand clearly as well. He can go an extra mile if it comes to helping out his client. He traveled for me all the way from Florida for my case here in SFO. I wish him the best; he is a seasoned professional and knows his job very well. He certainly can make you feel at ease and more importantly get a job done for you as he did exceptional job for me.
