Immigration case
David is so down to earth and thorough. He listened to everything I had to say and pursued all avenues possible for a positive outcome for me. Communication was great and he really worked with me on payments and went above and beyond even prior to retaining him. He always had time to talk and meet if needed...although we only needed to meet once. I would recommend his services to anyone. Even after his part was complete, he continued to follow up with me and see the case through. I am so grateful God put him in my path. I don’t think anyone else, nor has anyone else, ever taken the time to assist me the way that he did.

He is a wonderful, detailed and knowledgeable immigration lawyer
David is my immigration lawyer. From the moment I called him for the first time, he was informative, helpful, and eager to get the process as quickly as possible. His expertise and drive to answer any question my husband and I asked during the entire experience was remarkable. He will do his best to help you understand any unique circumstances and his expertise was invaluable to our case. I highly recommend him as an immigration lawyer.

Excellent Legal Service!
During the process of my husband obtaining permanent residency in the U.S. we were so thankful for David's legal services! He clearly and concisely advised us in what to do, making the process easier and understandable. When communicating, he would always get back to us extremely quickly-- responding to our emails usually within the hour or less. We definitely recommend Cougle Law for anyone needing immigration services!

Immigration Law
My son and I retained David Cougle to help with a Visa for my daughter-in-law. He would not leave his family in the Middle East without bringing back their mother also. David was so indispensable in getting all the papers in order. He was so kind to me time and time again regarding sending them in the correct order. And no matter how much I didn't understand something, he would explain until I did. We would certainly use David Cougle again and recommend him for people who need help.
