  • Thomas M. Bingham

    Having worked for this good man for almost three years and known him for over 40, I can say without any hesitation that I believe Vance Winningham is without peer in the area of immigration law. His unchallenged expertise and immense level of knowledge after over 50 years of practice in this field makes him the king of the hill and "the" attorney to see if you or your loved one has an immigration problem that needs the hands of a true expert. However, in addition to all of those incredible skills, Vance is one of those people that creates an indelible impression on you, not only for his intelligence and dedication to doing an excellent job for his clients, but because his compassionate nature and great sense of humor makes him a real pleasure to be with. Simply put- if you need an immigration attorney, this is the man to see!
