William was assigned my case late in the process by his previous employer. Until that point, my satisfaction with my representation was extremely low. I felt like my case got pushed to the side and it was very difficult to get straight answers from the attorney assigned to my case.
When William took over, he was incredibly responsive and knowledgeable about my case and the laws pertaining to it. He attended an immigration interview with me in Tampa which put me at ease for a very important and stressful meeting.
Overall I was very satisfied with the service William provided to me and my family. I will not only recommend him to anyone seeking his services, but I will definately contact him when my time comes to apply for United States Citizenship.

I have been up and down with my immigration issues for the past 10 months with a previous attorney, I was never 100% happy with him because he was never available when I needed him. In November of 2011 I was asked to buy a one-way ticket to leave the United states and go back to my home country. My husband and I decided to find a new attorney and I found William. Since the first time I met him he was very humble, reassuring, responsive and knowledgeable. He basically sat me down and talked me through my issues and he gave me a piece of mind that he was going to do the best he can to keep me in the country. In just 2 months he got my approval from homeland security to file for a work permit. I am very happy because I have a wonderful husband and two beautiful kids, and because of William I am able to stay in the country and be with my family. Another thing that made me very comfortable with William is that he was always there when I needed to talk to him, and his staff was just as friendly. Overall William is a great attorney and I am very happy to have hired him.

I am a fellow immigration attorney in the community and I endorse Mr. Cavanaugh as an extremely qualified, respected, hard working and knowledgeable litigator and immigration attorney. We worked together for many years and I personally watched him passionately dedicate countless hours in defense of his foreign national clients.
