David is a great attorney that I will recommend to anyone who needs assistance with immigration and other areas including family law, criminal and more. David helped me with family law as well with immigration law and both experiences were great with a positive outcome. Client satisfaction is a number one priority for David and he will go above and beyond to make sure the client is satisfied and get the result he or she needs. Such behavior is great in comparison to others who are just interested in the financial aspect of the services that they will provide. David is not the kind of attorney and I will strongly suggest you to retain him as your attorney and I guarantee you that the outcome will be positive. Below example is my personal experience I had with David and that shows you how great he is.
I had a prior case with another attorney on a situation I was in back then and he suggested me to plead guilty on a specific part of the law by ensuring me it will not affect my immigration status. As a novice to the law and first offense, I accepted because I trust him. When I was ready to do my citizenship, I reached out to David as an immigration attorney. I explained the situation to him that I was convicted and showed him the plea agreement. Immediately, David pointed out to me that my attorney back then should not advise me that plea agreement because it will indeed affect my immigration status and it is a ground for deportation. I was scarred but David reinsured me that everything will be fine and he will work hard on my case and he actually did. The arguments back and forth between David and the government are a proof of how concerned he is about his clients welfare and at the end I was granted a citizenship.
David is a fighter and a great attorney to have on your side. Wilson Law Group is a place to go if you need an honest and trustworthy attorney.

I didn't think I would hear anything until Monday morning. Then noticed I received an email from him at 8:30 Sat night.

I would recommend Dave as he goes above and beyond where other attorneys fold to the almighty dollar.
