He was recommended by a friend who used him to get her green card, we made our first appt with his office and went a few days later on the appt date. we started by meeting another attorney not fernando which we were told he was out of the office for a few days. this lawyer of his told my wife she had 2 options which were the DACA or getting her green card but would have to leave the country for a interview in juarez which scared the hell out of my wife. we gave the lawyer some info on her past and told him when she was younger her father started the process but he told us since she had gotten married with a illegal that it voided that process. well we started the DACA process since it was something we could barely afford at the time since the greencard option was about 3000.00 just for the attorney fees and still had the immigrartion fees also. well we agreed on the amount for the daca process and setup another appt to bring all the required paperwork so the lawyer could put it together in a packet with paperwork the lawyer will fill out. Funny thing is they got the packet ready but we had to mail it, i would thought they would take care of it but we went ahead and mailed it. months later we recieved a letter from immigration and they requested more information from my wife. a few days later we recieved a copy of the same letter from the lawyers office which i would have thought they would contact us to come in to discuss what is the next step but they didnt. we sent more info to immigration and again a few months later again immigration sent a another request for more detail info and again the lawyers office sent copies to us of the same letter. so we tried to contact the lawyer and explained to the lady who anwsered the phone the situation but she we would have to wait for a appt even thoe we explained the importance of our situation but to her we were just another number to her. so finally we recieved a final notice from immigration telling my wife she was denied for not enough proof of her been in the usa long enough and GED proof. i finally emailed the lawyers office and a miracle happened the acutal lawyer fernando replied stating he had been tryin to contact my wife for the longest which was false we even checked our cell phone records and voicemails and never recieved a call from him or his office just letters from immigration. So we felt that all they did was fill out paper work for us and left us to fend for ourselves against immigration.we tried to ask for a partial refund because i know they did a small amount of work but not enough for the fee they charged us. but they just same NO REFUNDS!!! so if you want a lawyer who never calls or never meets with his clients( he has his assistants do that) then hes the guy for you!!!

They practically don't care. The office staff is rude and getting a return call from them is impossible. The assistant, Rita, is one of the most unprofessional people you will ever speak to. She is beyond rude and talks down on clients over the phone. If you have a question about your case, she never has answers, or she'll "call you back". The attorneys don't seem professional either, and you'd be lucky if you speak with them once or twice while they handle your case. It's been more than a year since they started our case and it seems like all the paperwork wasn't requested by them, therefore it wasn't sent properly. Now they want us to come in again and probably give them more money for a case that isn't even clear to us. You come to these people for guidance and representation, instead they treat you like if they are donating their services and doing you a favor, when they are paid to do their job. I'm sorry I even gave their address to a friend so she can seek their services. I hope she has a better experience than mine so far.

This attorney charged me a lot of $$money$$ for my DACA and did not even use spell checker on my case. He entered wrong information and from the looks of it never reviewed his work. I'm very fortunate my case was even approved. I did not return to renew my case with him because his time allotted to me was very limited the first time. When he told me what he was going to charge me to renew I booked!
