If you have any questions regarding immigration, you have to get in touch with The Law Offices of Michael D. Baker. His extensive knowledge in immigration law and dedication to his work has benefited my family greatly. I can attest to the quality of work he has performed from assisting in the prevention of deportations, seeking permanent status and assisting in the naturalization process. His bilingual skills are a huge plus which allow individuals to comfortably discuss their case. His work and ethical values speak volumes and I would recommend him without hesitation.

Michael Baker is an amazing attorney. My husband had somewhat of a difficult immigration case and Michael helped us through the rest of the process. I am used to hearing that clients are rarely able to speak to their attorney when needed but in our case we spoke to Michael Baker directly every single time. He answered every single one of our question promptly whether it was by email or phone and was very helpful in explaining every single detail. I recommend him to anyone that is looking to adjust their immigration status. He sincerely cares about the people he is trying to help and that makes the experience easier to go through. Thanks to him, hard work and knowledge now my husband is a permanent resident in the U.S.

After 2 lawyers who all had empty promises and no effort, we found Mike Baker through Avvo. My case was no ordinary one . After my conditional residency was terminated and my case was moved to the removal proceedings we hired Mike. Mike stood with us for more then 5 years. He is very patient and makes sure that we are up to date on his approach with regular meetings , calls and emails .His methodology is great. The first step was getting the I 130 approved and he got that approved the day of interview. I believe the first and most important step of I 130 could have never got approved without Mike. Next step was getting the removal proceedings terminated. It wasn't easy but Mike is no ordinary lawyer, he knows the ins and outs of the immigration system and he got that terminated. Finally the i485 which took a while as the Chicago office was backed up but he got my green card. It took 5 years, but if he says he can do it , he will. (not like those other fake lawyers who just want ur money) . Don't even hesitate or look around. THIS IS YOUR LAWYER . Thanks Mike for everything .

An internal company transfer saw me and my family move from South Africa to the USA. Our Group in the filtration business had previously made use of Michael's services for other successful transfers from Europe to the US. Without hesitation Mike started on our case and took us step by step through the process and procedures. Mike has the patience and the perseverance to negotiate those myriad of laws and regulations that come with immigration into the US. There was off course no question that we would call upon Mike's experience once we were eligible to apply for our Green Cards. Again, he took all worries, concerns and work out of our hands. Without hesitation we would recommend Michael Baker's services.

Mike Baker was recommended to me by the ex state attorney of Springfield.
The USCIS had revoked my green card after I had got divorced from my US wife. I was on the verge of returning home to England before I went to Mike.
He turned everything around for me with his skill and expertise in immigration law, Mike was always available on the phone or by e-mail, he was quick and responsive to everything the USCIS sent out, he followed with me on everything and patiently explained all the process that I was going thru. Mike won my case with his skill and constant probing in the immigration field. If anyone needs a top class immigration attorney, Mike Baker is your go too man.

Following an incident that happened in 2003, I was declared inadmissible in 2012 by the Us consular in Nigeria. I needed to sort this out because my offence was a naïve mistake with no criminal intent but I had no clue how to go about it.
I found Mike Baker via Google. A few other USA based attorneys I contacted were reluctant to deal with me considering I was based in far away Nigeria. I gave him a call and Mr. Baker asked me to send a mail stating my case. After a few days and a series of telephone calls he accepted to handle my case but sternly requested I be very honest and straight forward with him.
All correspondences were via telephone calls and emails. We never had a face to face meeting as I was based in Lagos Nigeria. Mike painstakingly explained and outlined explained the steps I needed to follow to apply for a section 212 (D) (3)(A) waiver of Inadmissibility .
We started the process in April 2014 and I formally requested for the waiver in September 2014 at the consular in Nigeria. . I got my waiver approved in January 2015 (4 MONTHS).
Over the period Mr Baker handled all emails and phone calls personally and professionally. He never referred me to any of his legal aids and he never failed to respond my emails and calls. He was always matter- of -factly and never made an attempt to raise my hopes unduly. He was Very professional and void of unnecessary sentiments. He was also very detailed and patient considering the difference in time zones between us.
My case appeared impossible as I had used an attorney who wasted my 2 years taking me through a wrong route , but with his help my waiver was approved unexpectedly fast .
My family is highly impressed with his services.
I highly recommend Mike Baker to anyone needing assistance with immigration matters. During the entire process, I found Mike professional, extremely knowledgeable and always willing to return a call or email to answer any questions I had.

I was referred to Mike from another attorney because of his expertise in immigration law. I came from Mexico to the U.S several years ago undocumented. Sense that time I have attended GED classes along with other specialty courses. I also have a Civil Union with my life partner. In 2012 I.C.E statred deportation proceedings against me. Because of Mike's efforts and expertise he was able to get I.C.E to use Prosecutorial Discretion and stop the removal proceedings! My partner and I felt like Mike took a personal interest in our case! He kept us informed throughout the entire process. Also, it was very helpful that Mike speaks Spanish, he was able to explain everything to me so I had a complete understanding!

Mike Baker has been our lawyer for several years.Â
He has advised and guided us in various matters, always evincing a deep and thorough knowledge of the law. His advice has always been most valuable.
He always returns calls and e-mails promptly, and always makes time to meet with us even though he clearly has a very busy schedule. Â Mike takes care that we understand our options, the meaning of relevant legal terms and their implications, making us feel at ease with topics that seem complicated and sometimes incomprehensible to us. We feel very secure and comfortable working with him and would not hesitate to give him the highest possible recommendation.
Many thanks Mike--you have been of great help and support and we are very grateful for all your advice, time and patience.

I needed to adjust my status from "out of status" to a permanent resident in the United States. I found Mike Baker by researching immigration lawyers in Internet. I gave him a call and Mr. Baker returned my call personally and I made an appointment to meet with him for a consultation.
At our first meeting Mike thoroughly explained the steps I needed to follow to adjust my status to a permanent resident. During the entire process, Mike never failed to respond my emails and calls. My situation was very difficult, but with his help my case was approved unexpectedly fast. My husband and I are happy with his services.
I highly recommend Mike to anyone needing assistance with immigration matters. During the entire process, I found Mike professional, extremely knowledgeable and always willing to return a call or email to answer any questions I had.
