Knowledgeable and trusted immigration lawyer
Mr. Mckinnney has been my immigration lawyer since February 2014. He has processed my paperwork for my wife from the Philippines and has always answered any questions I had for him concerning my wife's immigration status. He always has treated me with respect and his legal fees are very affordable. We are still considering him for my wife's naturalization to become a citizen once she is ready to move forward to take the test.

Honest and highly knowledgeable
Chris was very honest and very knowledgeable about immigration law. My situation, "adjustment to permanent residency" was a bit complicated since my wife was already in the process of her status change. I consulted three lawyers and Chris was the only correct one. He insisted on his read of the law and guided us through an easier path. This saved us a lot of agony and provided us with an expedited process. Also, he was very fair with the charges. I usually had to proactively offer him fees before he took it. Very honest lawyer!

Professional and dependable
Chris was professional, dependable and answered all of my questions thoroughly. He prepared me well for my USCIS interview and ensured that my immigration process was smooth and hassle-free. I recommend Chris McKinney to anyone seeking immigration assistance and plan to hire his services in the future as well.

Extremely satisfied with both process and result in immigration matter
Chris had all of the expertise that we needed and more when we needed to adjust my wife's immigration status to that of a permanent U.S. resident. He was very cordial and generous with his time in scheduling an initial consultation before we decided to proceed with him as our lawyer. We felt very confident and needed to look no further for a lawyer after meeting with him. His was very thorough and made an otherwise-complex process very straightforward for us. Throughout the process, he was readily available and responsive whenever we had questions. The process unfolded exactly as he said it would, and we successfully completed the adjustment of my wife's status in approximately four months (from the filing of our application to our receipt of my wife's green card). Considering the time that Chris put into our matter, we believe that his representation was an exceptional value for our money. For anyone considering retaining Chris as their lawyer in a similar matter, we are extremely satisfied with both his process and the result thereof, and we highly recommend him with no reservations or cautions whatsoever.

PROFESSIONALISM IS THE BEST DESCRIBE OF MR CHRISTOPHER
I enjoyed every bit of my experienced with Mr. Christopher from the first day I contacted him for my case of becoming a permanent resident. He had answered for all my questions in details and very objective in explaining the whole process involved in getting the job done. I got my permanent resident card less than anticipated time, I have recommended him to my friend, I will recommend him again and again, great job.

The best litigation officer!
Christopher is in my humble opinion the best immigration lawyer. His knowledge of the law goes beyond words can explain. I will recommend him to anyone, any day, any time. He is undoubtedly the best and one of a kind.

excellent service
Christopher was extremely detailed and caring in the entire step through out the green card process. We could always reach him through email/text/phone etc. He also came to the green card interview. It was just a very good and smooth experience working with Christopher. We were able to apply for the permanent residency and get an interview in less than 3 month and was able to get the green card one week after the interview. And it all thanks to Christopher's help, guidance, and thorough handling of all the documents. Highly recommended.

Excellent service with Immigration Application challenges
Mr. McKinney was a big help on a recent challenge I had getting approval on applications pending for my wife and children. His review and recommendations were key in helping us get the applications approved quickly and inexpensively. Thanks for looking out for us!

fiance visa
I needed a fiance visa, Chris was great to work with ! He was honest and upfront about the process, expenses, and expectations. I Highly recommend anyone needing legal counsel in his field of expertise at least consult with him before hiring anyone, as he is honest and straight forward. The other attorneys I spoke with prior to Chris were extremely vague, and somewhat evasive when answering the questions about fees, expectations, and the visa process in general.

Awsome Lawyer at his best
i called Mr.Christopher for my case he gave me free consulting over the phone which was around 10 mins and then i setup a paid consulting with him. i was satisfied with the answer to my questions, and then i hired Mr.Christopher for my immigration case based on marriage. Every thing went sooth and super fast as he told me everything in the paid Consulting. He was very quick to reply my all emails. Always there when i ask any question. Couple of days before the interview he told me everything how it will go through. He motivates me not to take stress and don't be nervous. Interview date 5 mins interview we was out from the room and approved on the spot. Thanks Mr.Christopher I will highly recommend Mr.Christopher to every one.

Great experience
Christopher is a great lawyer. He was extremely knowledgeable, available and helpful throughout the whole process of obtaining my wife's permanent residency. Any question or doubt we had, he was always willing to answer and did so promptly as well. He made us feel very confident going into our interview and the whole process was very quick (all things considered) and painless. I can't think Christopher enough for his help and will of course recommend him to friends if they need assistance with immigration law.

I hired him
Mr. Christopher is being such a helpful person through some advise he has been providing me with. He never cancels an appointment. Though I have been feeling very low for years, I have found him to be more than a brother to me though I know any of my own. He double checks all the information I provide him for the development of my case, he is very punctual and down to earth. Despite, I do not still know what will be the outcome of my case but I will keep positive impressions of him
