An attorney you can rely on!
I endorse attorney Ilaria Akl, Esq. because she is an honorable and extremely knowledgeable attorney. Specially, she has been working with immigration law for years. She has been very helpful to me and to my friends, to whom I recommended her. She has advised me in a difficult situation regarding an employment matter. Her advice and assistance I will never forget. She is worth every penny! As I said, I recommended Ms. Akl to various friends and she has resolved their immigration legal issues too, even two complex court cases. She is a well respected attorney and admitted to the Florida bar.

Ilaria Akl is simply a God sent attorney, she worked honestly, reliably and tirelessly even on weekends and after-hours. I have used Ms. Akl for my immigration case and in three different real estate transactions for my family. Always calm, in control and looking out to protect our interest, she saved us a lot of money and time. Ms. Akl is extremely knowledgeable and I am forever grateful to her. I highly recommend her you will be surprised by the level of dedication and service she provides. Thank you so much!

| Hired Attorney
Worst lawyer ever for immigration
Don’t loose time and money with her. I hired her she was a disaster. She has no ethic and no organization. Keep away from her.
