We decided to use Mr. Sarmiento's Immigration Law Firm because of all the good reviews he had on the internet. Our I-485 case was approved on February and we were finally able to obtain our permanent resident cards in March. We were very pleased with his services throughout all the process which took a little bit more than a year. Very fast and easy communication thru emails and always took the time to respond to any of our concerns. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who's currently seeking for immigration assistance. He has very reasonable prices and the payment options he offers are very good as well. Definitely the best choice.
