Thank you!
Atty. Jess is worth all the commendation he receives from all his clients. He does not treat me as a regular client but you can feel his honesty and sincerity as a person. He can be very friendly with his legal advice and does not make other promises just to have financial gain over honest service. I have recommended Atty. Jess to a good number of friends because i know “HINDI AKO MAPAPAHIYA!”

Excellent lawyer!
Jesse helped me obtain permanent residency in the United States. The process was easy and he was always available for questions and concerns during the process. The entire process took 10 months from filing even though it was originally estimated to be 12-18 months. I definitely recommend Jesse for immigration needs!

Successful case!
Attorney Marchan has helped me from the beginning of my case here in America from expiration to change of status to adjustment of status. Currently I am a greencard holder from being an H4 to student visa, to spouse of a citizen. He is very well informed, very approachable, and he has your back if you have any questions or concerns - he gladly responds in a timely manner. I am very pleased with his service, and I will continue to recommend a great lawyer like attorney Marchan to friends and family. Thank you, attorney.

Visa for My Wife from the Philippines
I married my wife in the Philippines in 2011. I started my process late due to finances. I applied on my own but had difficulty with the affidavit of support. I hired Jesse Marchan and he made the process easy for me. He asked for documents and I gave them to him. My wife had two strokes and we had to file for an expedited Visa. He stayed on top of the case and my wife arrived in the US on April 15,2017. I enjoyed my interactions with Jesse and I feel like I have gained a friend.

Superb Experience
I am grateful to Atty. Jesse P. Marchan for the efficient way he assisted me with my Permanent Residency here in the USA with a Religious Worker’s Visa. I was able to get my permanent residence in ten months from when we first applied for the change in my status. Atty. Jesse is very knowledgeable and is always up to date in all aspects of USA Immigration Law. He is very accommodating, very approachable, compassionate, and is always willing to help. He was very patient and kind as he answered all my questions concerning immigration. He took time to explain the process to me in a language that I could clearly understand. He was very generous in sharing his knowledge of immigration law. Atty. Jesse P. Marchan is an excellent and very proficient immigration lawyer. Thank you Atty. Marchan for all you did for me, for our “kababayan” (fellow Filipinos), and for the church. God bless you Atty. Marchan. I highly recommend Atty. Jesse P. Marchan in all Visa Processing and Immigration Services.

From H1B to GreenCard in 4 years
We came here in the US as H1B Oct. 2012, I currently work as a teacher here in Utah, then we hired Jessie to help us with our immigration papers. He advised what is best for us and we listened to him. Now five of us in the family have Green Cards. Asked if I recommend Jessie? I say Yes, a hundred times!

Excellent support with my immigration process
Jesse has been excellent supporting my wife and I through my Immigration process. I have felt totally supported, he has been not just very professional but also very sensitive towards us, as we faced difficult health issues while the process was taking place all the way to the end with a very positive outcome. I have no hesitation in recommending Jesse to everyone who might need support with Immigration issues.

Fiance Visa -- excellent representation!
Jesse did a wonderful job. Nice as could be and knowledgeable regarding the process. Our K1 Visa took 5-6 months and that was a little faster than we expected. Jesse knew how to guide us and really did a wonderful job. Thanks!
