A knowledgable attorney who really cares
Elizabeth is an extremely knowledgable immigration attorney who is results driven for her clients. She truly cares about her clients, their individual situations, and finding the best solution to resolve their immigration issues. I have consulted with Elizabeth frequently regarding immigration issues clients in my family law practice have faced. Her knowledgable advice has really helped my clients. I would highly recommend Elizabeth to my friends, family, and best clients.

Incredibly above and beyond.
Judy and I had already withdrew our immigration application years ago due to legal problems, and we tried to warn Elizabeth that it wasn’t going to a simple case. It did turn out to be a nightmare, and I was sure that she would get frustrated and want lots more money or simply quit. Elizabeth was with us all the way, and she seemed to love us as much as we love her. Victory is ours. Thank you so much Elizabeth.

A professional lawyer to work with.
As a client I was highly satisfied working with Elizabeth Cuenca as my lawyer because she was available at all times when needed. She always kept me informed on the status of my case and was very knowledgeable about all aspects pertaining to immigration. I worked with her for three years and she even followed up with me after I received my Green Card. Her professionalism was great and overall I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of an immigration attorney.

Stop looking for the perfect immigration lawyer...you found her!
My wife and I contracted Elizabeth for our green card interview and were VERY glad we did. We had an attorney for the fiance' visa process based in my wife's home country. That service was designed to help us through the visa application AND the green card process. While they did a great job getting us up to the green card interview, we later realized how IMPORTANT it is to have a USA based lawyer help us with the preparation and completion of the actual green card interview. Bringing someone to the USA is a difficult, tedious and expensive process. It is easy to try to save on the final step and go to the green card interview without representation. That is a MISTAKE you should not make. Don't try to save a little bit of money when you have already invested your heart, time and money to get to this point! Elizabeth will prepare you for the interview and be by your side throughout the process. She is detailed oriented and very experienced. That she is pleasant and fun is just a bonus. She was generous with her time and responded quickly to every question; even during non-business hours. You cannot find a better or more knowledgeable person to assist you with this difficult process. Stop searching for immigration representation...you already found the best!

Very Professional and Positive!
I have struggled with my paperwork and the process I have to deal with but when she stepped over to handle my case, everything went smoothly to a point where I myself was surprised! In spite of the government closing, she was able to schedule me and got my green card that same day! Call it lucky however, the times she was handling my case, everything went smoothly and I would feel confident about my case! She also answered all my questions with clear answers that leaves me no doubt that things will be done properly. Awesome lawyer, will definitely hire her again for my Citizenship!

She is everything that is good in this country
We came to Ms. Elizabeth well over a year ago at such a high stress level and she in a matter of minutes had as calm and collected. Her firm and herself have worked incredibly hard and treated us like we were family and a priority from day one of this process and it has helped us in ways we cannot describe. We are no legal PERMANENT RESIDENTS due to her tenacity and professionalism; couldn't have asked for a better team, especially in regards to Ms. Elizabeth. We are forever grateful and appreciative of her not only as our lawyer but as a friend.

Ms. Pophal helped both my wife and I with our permanent residence application. She explained the process very clearly and it only took months to get a positive outcome and receive our green cards. Attorney Pophal is an excellent immigration attorney, and we can't thank her enough!

Absolutely excellent!
I hired Attorney Pophal for my Naturalization process and I can't say enough good things about her professionalism, diligence, and dedication to my immigration matter. She was always willing to answer any of my questions and made me feel at ease about my application. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again.

Amazing Lawyer
I was represented by Ms.Pophal and she is a sweetheart I knew things would go just fine with her by our side. she was very honest with our case that we wouldn't have any problems, and sure enough I am happy to say I am a Permit Resident of the United States thanks to her. She knows what she is doing and she works hard for the people she is representing. I wouldn't think twice in hiring her for any immigration issue, she will do whatever it takes so things work out for the best. she wont judge you any anyway for mistakes in the pass trust me I know, I don't think I could ever get tired of telling people how amazing this woman is. And I am prove of what she is able to do, people don't waste time and call her up and hire her. Thank you again Elizabeth for all you did for me I wish you nothing but the best.

You're in good hands with Ms. Pophal!
My wife and I were represented by Ms. Pophal at our USCIS interview for my wife's conditional green card. She collected all of our evidence and prepped us for the interview, and from start to finish, I couldn't be more satisfied with the amazing work she did. She is down to earth and highly qualified; we trusted her with our case instantly. She compiled our evidence beautifully and effortlessly put both me and my wife at ease. Other than the usual nerves on the day of the interview, I wasn't half as worried as I would have been if we didn't have her sitting with us in the interview. We can't thank Ms. Pophal enough for all of the work she put into our case; we sincerely owe our green card victory to her. Know that if you are being represented by Ms. Pophal, you are seriously in good hands!
