Asilo político familiar
La familia Campos Rodríguez primeramente damos gracias a Dios por habernos puesto en nuestro camino a el abogado Moises que junto con su esposa Sarah han hecho un gran trabajo, nos han ayudadomuchísimo con nuestro caso familiar. Nosotros llegamos este país a finales del año 2015 pues al principio nos sentimos muy preocupados teniamos temor de que nos regresaran a nuestro país de origen ya que allá nos pasaron muchos problemas y nuestras vidas corrían peligro y por eso salimos de nuestro país luego ya estando aquí nos recomendaron a el abogado Moises nos pusimos en contacto con el y le hablamos de nuestro caso el ya nos explicó todo el proceso que teníamos que hacer para que todo saliera bien, desde ese tiempo que Moises llevó nuestro caso en proceso nosotros nos sentimos confiados de que todo saldría bien y siempre dejamos todo en manos de Dios y gracias a Dios todo ha sido un éxito hemos ganado nuestro caso y si Dios lo permite dentro de unos años tendremos nuestra residencia nos sentimos muy feliz. Moises es un excelente abogado lo recomendamos.

Satisfied Customer
We had hired an attorney before and that attorney could not resolve our immigration issues. We had consulted two others and they both said it could not be done. Finally, we heard of attorney Moises Barraza through a family member who lives in Illinois, we live in California, at any rate we scheduled a phone interview with him. After the interview he said, "I believe I can help you". We contracted him and started the process. A lot of paper work and going back and forth but, everything he asks for is important. We finally got our notice for the interview at the U.S embassy in Juarez Mexico. While we were there his office was constantly checking up on us because they knew we were very nervous and they assured us that they were there to support us if any legal issues arose. Everything went so smoothly, no issues whatsoever. Attorney Moises Barraza covered all the bases and left nothing to chance. We never met Attorney Moises Barraza in person nor did we go to his office, we did the whole process over the phone, internet and mail. We hope to soon visit this wonderful attorney to personally thank him for an exceptional service. We rate him more than five stars. Hector & Ana G.

El perdón aprobado después de negación previa
Mi esposa y yo inicialmente sometimos nuestro perdón a través de una persona que no es abogada. El perdón fue negado. Contactamos a la oficina del abogado Moises quien nos sometió el perdón correctamente con toda la documentación necesaria. ¡Fue aprobado! Lo que más me gustó fue que respondieron nuestras preguntas, mensajes, y hicieron su trabajo profesionalmente. Ahora mi esposa y yo no tenemos esperar diez años antes de hacerme residente.

Liberado de Detencion (Released from Detention)
Menos de dos semanas después de contratar el Abogado Moises Barraza, fui liberado de detención. Lo que mas me gusto fue que el Abogado Moises trabajo rapidamente con mi abogado criminal para cambiar mis cargos criminales injustos para asegurar que yo fuera eligible para una fianza. Otros abogados de inmigración me habían dicho que no era elegible para una fianza. Less than two weeks after hiring Attorney Moises Barraza, I was released from detention. What I appreciated most about Attorney Moises is that he worked very quickly with my criminal attorney in order to change my unjust criminal charges and ensure that I would be eligible for a bond. Other immigration attorneys had told me that I wasn't eligible for a bond.

Un Buen Abogado/ Great Lawyer
He is not only a great Lawyer but a great person. I know with Lawyers and their reputations sometimes is hard to be able to fully trust them. Not Moises, from the first time you meet him you can tell the honesty on him and his wife/assistant. His faith is great inspiration for him as I can tell. He was our second opinion in Lawyers as the first one didn't wanted to take our case. Moises did and with great care. No solo es un buen abogado sino también una gran persona. Moises fue nuestra segunda opinion como abogado por que el primero no quiso tomar el caso de mi esposa. Moises lo tomo y con mi gran admiración esta llevando todo muy rápido y con mucha esperanza de arreglar. Una persona muy honesta y se ve desde que lo conoces. Me di cuanta que su Fe lo motiva mucho, le doy gracias a Dios y una persona que nos contacto con el por todo el trabajo que hace. No duden en llamar.
