    Before meeting and hiring Margaret , I had several consultations with different lawyers in Dallas and was desperately looking for a good attorney to handle my extremely complicated case. However, I did not feel confident to hire any of the attorneys I spoke to. Coincidentally, I found Margaret and read some her reviews. Immediately, I decided to give her a call, and I am so grateful that I did. That turned out to be one the the best decisions of my life. Margaret is very passionate about her work and devotes her time to her clients and their needs. She spent much more time than she was supposed to with my wife and me and genuinely cared about the success of our case. Margaret walked us through all the processes and was very patient. We found that since she has been living abroad and has provided pro-bono services for various immigration non-profits, she truly understands different cultures.

    Margaret is an angel. Don't question hiring her. Her services are well worth your time and money.

    We consulted Ms. Margaret, she was very knowledgeable about my parents' immigration situation. She helped us understand the different options we had, and most importantly, she didn't give us false hope in order for us to hire her services. I recommend Ms. Margaret and I will come back to her every time I need an experienced immigration lawyer.

    Margaret gave exceptional legal advice that cleared up the plethora of conflicting information available online. She was very intelligible and gave detailed explanations regarding every question that I had.

    My significant other and I had a rather unique immigration situation. Margaret gave us options that would be the least tedious and told us what we needed to do in order to achieve them.

    Margaret is an amazing attorney. Put people in first place. All comments about her on this website say that, and I just had the chance to confirm that. She knows almost everything that one can know about immigration. She helped us a lot. Not only regarding immigration matters, but also with very important recommendations about schools, universities, far beyond her scope. Thanks Margaret!

    I have been talking to many attorneys and Margaret just stands out far better than any Pro attorney in Seattle I have talked with. She explained to me the whole process and why i should be confident in going forward with my application and advise me on further actions i should take without charging me a fee. I'm so impressed with her knowledge and her kindness. She is the best attorney and i will recommend her to anyone who need immigration help. From what I talked with her, she is more familiar with immigration rules than some attorneys i have consulted for hours with, and this is very important since i don't want to hand my life to an attorney who just wants to charge me money and get me deported after. If only, I live in Dallas, I would be so happy to work with her, a true angel!!!!

    Margaret is an exceptional immigration lawyer. She has gone above and beyond to help me with the whole process of getting my wife approved for her visa. She has been with us for each step, making sure that we had meetings for each step and making sure that every document that was needed was in the correct format and was sent to the correct department. Preparation is her goal, she wanted and made sure that everything was in order for me and my wife. She gave me peace of mind knowing that at any time I could call her and ask her questions for something that I did not understand. Listening to her explain the process made me feel at ease because I could hear the experience and wisdom talking. What also helped me with peace of mind was when she used her personal journey of the immigration process to help me be prepared if any situation arose in the process. I would recommend Margaret to anyone that is wanting to know more about the process or is looking for an Immigration lawyer that will get it done and a caring friend to make sure that your loved one or loved ones are taken care of in this crazy process of immigration.

    Margaret really is a treasure. Im happy I talked to her. Shes very knowledgeable about her work and she explains in great detail the options at hand. This led me the discovery of steps to take toward gaining my citizenship that I didnt know existed. I felt that she truelly cared about my case, I didnt feel alone, helpless and doomed like I often felt with lawyers before. She is wonderful and highly recommand her.

    Words is not enough to thank Atty. Margaret for all the help, patience and dedication she has put into my case. I was literally taken advantage by other lawyers by imposing ridiculous fees. They even turned me down and was given lost hope. NOT Margaret! She provided an hour of FREE consultation and worked on my case IMMEDIATELY. I had multiple misdemeanor charges that happened over 10 yrs ago on my record and like to apply for U.S citizenship.

    Well guess what???!!! I AM NOW a NATURALIZED U.S. CITIZEN!!! I couldn't be more happier! She even came with me on my interview so I do not feel nervous!

    She really is one if not the TOP immigration lawyer in Dallas. You will not regret or be sorry.
    God has given us a gift to help us, that is you Margaret!

    I am lost for words and gratitude when it comes to Mrs. Berthoff-Fernandez. I am very pleased with the way she works and the results we received from her. I was very afraid and clueless when it came to dealing with my husband's immigration paperwork and process. She quickly set my mind at ease and I am so happy with the work she did. Thank you soooooooo much!!!!! :-)
