LLegué a Patricia gracias a un amigo que me la recomendó y honestamente estoy infinitamente agradecido. Patricia además de ser una gran profesional que recomiendo infinitamente, es un gran ser humano que me dio las fuerzas para continuar en mi causa.

Excellent lawyer!
We hired Patricia to help us get me a fiance visa and kept her on later for my green card process. She was extremely helpful throughout both processes and answered all my questions diligently. She gave me and my husband the peace of mind we were looking for and I have no regrets hiring her. Thank you, Patty!

Absolutely the best and hard working lawyer!!!
If you want a lawyer that fights for you, she is the one! I was detained and ordered for deportation for a misdemeanour that I did way back 2010. I'm a lawful immigrant since 2003. We hired her through a good friend's referral. Attorney Patricia always responds to our emails and she is so professional. For my final hearing, I saw her greatness, she was literally fighting for me! She was about to get into an argument with the prosecutor and she was told by the Judge to let the prosecutor finish talking. Because she knows what was right about law and statutes, she did her best to get her point across! My family and I were so amazed to witness this and are absolutely proud and grateful to have her as our Attorney. Attorney Patricia and her team did an awesome job managing the whole case, and were very attentive to the details. It was a long and hard process, but we made it through in the end. I wouldn't be where I am now if it wasn't for her. Thank you so very much Attorney, from me and my whole family!

Personalized Service at its BEST
Mrs. Hernandez handle my request for US Citizenship; since my case was not simple as I had been previously denied and had previous child support issues. I knew I could not do it on my own. She handle my case as if she were fighting for a family member. Could not ask for best legal representation. Rates were extremely reasonable. Would highly recommend!

GENUINE CONCERN FOR DUE DILIGENCE & SINCERELY EMPATHETIC TOWARDS OUR CASE
Couldn't have found a better counselor for me and my wife's case! Patricia represented me, successfully, in obtaining a K1 visa in a compassionate, timely & efficient manner. She is straightforward, trustworthy and always kept us abreast of each step in the process, moreover, even took the time to answer some of my wife's concerns, in Morocco, via email. I will definitely have counselor Hernandez represent me and my wife through the next steps of our immigration journey and beyond into family matters as well. Thanks again counselor, for your kind; thorough representation & assistance, in making our dream of marriage a reality.

Friendly, Professional y Knowledgeable
Best immigration attorney my wife and I could have found. She explained the process and prepared us for the marriage interview very well. At the time of the interview we felt very confident that everything was going to go well and it did. My wife received her residency card today and we could not be happier. I recommend this attorney to everyone who is looking for a competent knowledgeable attorney.
