Michael has been a great resource for me as immigration attorney in Des Moines. Mike has always been there for me with answers to questions on how to approached another counselor who took my money without representing my case. I went to Mike and I explained him about my situation and, he helped me until he recovered all of my money back. I would encourage anyone to trust Mike with your case.

Best in the business
My family chose representation with Mr. Keller after dealing with seemingly whimsical employees at the passport agency for the better of 6 months. The agency would not send us a denial, but constantly claimed that the very documents they asked us to send them to be insufficient. We consulted other firms which told us that we indeed required an attorney but could not help us with the issue or would need a lot of time and resources to do so. Mr. Keller was easily able to assess the situation, compile all the information, and devise a strategy to help my family acquire their passports. After 6 months of jumping through hoops, Mr. Keller was able to help my family acquire passports in a matter of only 2 weeks after his correspondence with the agency. I have never met such a professional, well-organized, kind and knowledgeable legal representative. For his services, his prices are quite reasonable and he gets right to work. It's also worth mentioning that communication is top notch, he is always on the go but is never too busy for you. I highly recommend that anyone who needs representation in his areas of practice to consider Michael Keller, he will not let you down.

Mr. Mike Keller is the Best Immigration Lawyer Who Really Cares About His Clients
My new family needed a very good immigration lawyer. We “shopped” for a very good immigration lawyer from San Francisco, California to Washington, D.C. Of course, the prices that the lawyers quoted varied greatly. But, that was not the worst part of “shopping” for our family’s new lawyer. The personal attitudes and professional competencies of the multiple lawyers we called and met also varied greatly. Just when we thought we should just give up and settle by “hiring” one of those typical pompous lawyers, we found Mr. Mike Keller. From our initial consultation to our detailed legal immigration paperwork, Mr. Mike Keller proved that he is truly one of the best immigration lawyers in the country – in the USA. Most importantly, he proved with his consistent attentiveness and professionalism that he really cared about his clients. Therefore, my new family and I recommend that you must contact Mr. Mike Keller if you need the best immigration lawyer (who is not over-priced). -- by Changyon Pak (“Steven”); Raised and Educated in State of Iowa; Fan of the Chicago Bulls; World Traveler for Over 30 Years; Volunteer & Founder of “Lights of Hopes,” an Independent, Non-Denominational International Youth Advocacy & Aid Mission
