Compassionate Lawyer
My husband and I have had the pleasure to work with Micheal for almost 10 years. Our immigration case was not easy and there were constant battles with the immigration office. Michael was always right there working very hard, making sure all the papers were filled out correctly, emailing us back even in the early hours of the morning to make sure we were able to get our end result. There were times that we didn’t see the end of our case, but Michael always reassured us that everything will be ok and we will get the result we have been waiting for and we seriously did. If anyone ever asks for an immigration lawyer we will always recommend Michael. Thank you for all that you did for us Michael.

Michael is the most professional person I’ve ever seen. I had a VERY VERY difficult case that no attorneys wanted to take my case. He accepted my case with confidence, fairly price, he had so much patience with me, he knows the law, very detailed. I’m very grateful to this man, he changed my life, I’m American citizen because of him . I highly recommend him. Thank you Michael and everyone who works in his office.

Could not be more grateful for Mr. Kern's help!
My family has been working with Mr. Kern for a number of years, and I cannot recommend him highly enough! My case was incredibly challenging, and he helped me attain permanent residency despite numerous obstacles. Mr. Kern is very intelligent, responsive, attentive to detail, and flexible to work with. He explains his process to you in a way that is easy to understand and works with you to develop a personalized plan that best fits your goals. He always keeps you updated on any developments in your case and strives to give you the best possible outcome in the most efficient manner. Mr. Kern always maintains a high level of professionalism and considers every option that may benefit your case. I am forever grateful for his help!
