Excellent and Compassionate Lawyer
My husband and I used Immigration Law Group of Florida to assist us in filing for status adjustment after our marriage. From the very first phone call, you could tell that this firm was different. They truly care about their clients. They take the time to explain all the steps, make sure you are comfortable, and don't pressure you into making a decision right then and there. They were there for us every step of the way, and I can't thank them enough.

She's incredible!
Adriana helped me receive my residency and was very helpful through the whole process. It was the year I was graduating high school and she even helped me with my application with anything involving my status during the process. Even now, four years later, we keep in touch. She's amazing!

Knowledge, Support and Vocation
Ms. Adriana M Dinis is not only knowledgeable and dedicated but, patient and supporting. My experience as her client was above all possible standards. She proved her professionalism and work ethic by providing results many other lawyers were incapable of. Before meeting Ms. Dinis I had sought legal representation many times and paid too much on consultation fees, all to no avail. On 2009 Ms. Dinis represented me and worked my case with USCIS through Gulf Coast Legal Services. Her analysis of the case was thorough and feasible; she discovered that I was a U.S Citizen by birth right. Her organization skills eased the flow of the overwhelming paperwork all leading to positive results. My family and feel blessed and are utterly grateful for meeting such a fine person with such a great heart and devotion.
