Let me first start by thanking John for all of his hard work on my case, I can't thank him enough of what he have done for us. I know John for past 8 years, I just wish that I had found him earlier. John brought back my case to life and took proper steps to resolve it. My case was so complicated that 2-3 attorneys refused to take it before I found John. It was a combination of mess created by previous 4-5 attorneys who had zero knowledge of what they were doing. I can write a whole book on my case, but I rather take this opportunity to talk about John. Not to mention, John have been received awards for best and emerging attorney which he totally deserves it. He went above and beyond to resolve this case. He is dedicated, loyal, trustworthy, super smart, supportive, knowledgeable!!! He won't take any steps without a clear vision, he will provide you a clear plan and executes that plan. He is really good in responding back to emails and calls, I have received calls from him at night when he was working on my case. He have responded back within few hours, unlike my previous attorneys where you will try to reach them for days!! When I was down and stressed, John was there to lift me up and stay on my side through out the process. He is also fluent in Spanish which is a plus for anyone who speaks Spanish only. My family and I owe him forever for all the hard work he have put in to resolve this case. Today, I'm a permanent resident and can stay with my family. I wish I could give him 100 stars!!!

First of all I want to express my gratitude to John for helping and guiding us with our case.
We we're aware of the difficulty of our case since it was previously denied, but then we were referred to john and thanks to his expertise and professionalism our case has been approved.
Not only he is a great attorney but he is also a very kind and supportive person making us feel as we were his most important client through the whole process...
And for those reasons I strongly recommend him.

I was referred to John Shine due to the difficulty of my case. I can honestly say he is a very intelligent and knowledgeable lawyer. He is also very honest and nice.
I will continue to use his service and
I would definitely recommend him to everyone seeking for a great lawyer.

I strongly endorse this lawyer. I have known John for years and I have witnessed him successfully represent clients in removal proceedings before the Executive Office for Immigration Review in addition to helping his clients obtain lawful permanent residency before the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services. John is an outstanding lawyer who uses his intelligence, experience, and knowledge of the law to work tirelessly on behalf of his immigration clients.

I endorse this lawyer. John is a fellow immigration lawyer who knows his way around our complex immigration system. He is dedicated to his clients and to his community. He has extensive experience in removal defense, as well as other areas of immigration law.
