3rd Hiring
I engaged Dawn for the third time. This time to supervise my naturalization process. I would not have hired anyone but her. I know her and I trust her based on all the work she did for me over the last 4 years. She successfully helped me file the I-130, I-485, I-102, I-765 I-751 and finally my N400. All were approved on schedule or sooner with no RFE. On the day of my N400 interview she helped me correct some of the information USCIS had misfiled which relieved quite a bit of stress off of me. Dawn even joined me for my oath ceremony. If that's not going above and beyond the call of duty for an attorney, I don't know what is. I wholeheartedly recommend Dawn both as a person and a skillful immigration attorney. Thank you Dawn, for everything, for changing my life for the better.

Best Immigration Lawyer
My application for naturalization was denied as USCIS wanted proof that i traffic citation i had over 8 years back was paid. Dawn was thorough in her consultation and guidance and helped in applying for hearing. After applying for the hearing with all possible documentation, which Dawn guided well USCIS realized that there was no point in calling for the hearing and directly sent notice for oath ceremony. Dawn was always available over email and phone and also confirmed her attendance in case there was a hearing which some of the other lawyers were not ready to confirm

The right attorney for us
After searching for months for an immigration attorney it was Dawn's website that caught my eye: 8 years experience in immigration law; her chosen field right out of law school. Meeting her for the first time sealed the deal: professional, ethical, amiable; all in one. My case was not an easy one but she started work on it right away, picked up a phone and was talking to the office of the Tennessee attorney general. This would be the first steps of many over the course of a year and a half that would lead to my becoming a permanent resident of the United States; a dream I'd almost given hope for. On the day of the USCIS interview in Memphis for me and my husband, Dawn drove 10 hours to be there with us and for us at 7 in the morning. I felt bad that she had to do that. She told me that it not only was her job but that you liked it. How could you not trust an attorney who likes her job and is also a nice human being. Thank you Dawn, you changed our lives for the better. You're the very best.

Professional, Ethical & Knowledgable
Dawn worked very closely with my wife and I to restructure not only our finances, but change our lifestyle. She is very knowledgable in many areas of law and finance, and has very high standards when it comes to ethics. We consider Dawn not only as a professional, but an advocate for those in need. We highly recommend Dawn and her practice.

Dawn Garcia - Recommended to You!
I recommend Dawn Garcia. She has helped me with several issues regarding immigration. Dawn is someone I trust because she has always been forthright with the law and has always provided me with the facts, even if those facts were not always what I wanted to hear. I noticed about Dawn that she is very proud of the oath she took as an attorney, as she abides by such - completely. I have recommended Dawn to many of my friends and recommend her to you!

Excellent Immigration Lawyer
Ms. Garcia is an excellent Lawyer. My wife and I got married abroad. Ms. Garcia helped us through the immigration process. She told us what documents we would need, helped us complete the various immigration forms, and assisted us with filing everything. When she was unable to go with us to Memphis for an interview, she made arrangements for another lawyer to meet us there and attend the interview. She was always quick to respond to our questions. My wife is now a proud U.S. citizen. Thank you Ms. Garcia for helping us start the immigration process off on the right foot.

Great help for a difficult time
I was going thru a very difficult time in my life and needed legal help. I saw Dawn's add in a phone directory and called for an appointment. From our first meeting until the last, she did everything in my best interest, and always kept me informed about the process and what to expect.

Awesome!
Dawn was great at putting together my green card application. She was thorough and obviously experienced. When it came time to have the interview my interviewer took one look at the package and basically stamped it and handed me my green card. He said it was more than enough and compared to most packages he sees it was an easy decision to approve my application!

Excellent Legal Representation
After speaking with other Attorneys concerning my legal matter and not believing they had my best interests in mind, I was directed to Ms Garcia. Not only did she allow me to have input into my case, but she approached every option with legal expertise and thoroughness. I cannot tell you how good it felt to have an attorney who was not only knowledgeable, but who made me feel confident that I was getting the best in legal representation. I would wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who might need legal counsel.

Great Bankruptcy attorney.
Dawn helped our family with a bankruptcy case a few years back. She was courteous and professional and did a great job. We got the resolution we were looking for with no setbacks or hassles. She kept us informed of the entire legal process, completely the paperwork correctly, met all the deadlines, and we received approval from the judge. We are grateful for her help, and I have recommended her in the past to friends.

I was referred to Dawn and heard nothing but positive things. Dawn is wonderful at her job. She kept me up to date with the process. She was great to work with.

Excellent attorney/advisor
Dawn is very knowledgeable and straight forward. She is NOT an attorney that is out there to take peoples money. She takes time with your case and with you. I loved that she was very thorough and told us step by step what would happen and it was precise. We are very thankful to have found Dawn. She cares about her practice and her client. Definitely the person to go to!
