I had the great pleasure of working with Michael Presti over the last year. He helped me successfully replace my permanent Green Card. He has been wonderful, supportive and gave me accurate advice every time I needed assistance. He cheerfully guided me during a stressful time when I had to travel outside the United States of America and I had issues with my legal name after a divorce. Every time I e-mailed or called him with a question or a concern, he responded promptly and made the process enjoyable.

I am grateful for attorney, Michael Presti, for his work with my case. I was in the custody of ICE.
My family and I were detained and we were about to be deported, but the lawyer immediately began searching for a way for us to be able to stay in the country.
I was at the point of being deported 3 times, one in February, another in April, and the last in May, but in the last minute when I was ready to go to the airport, he always gave me the news that I was staying --the last time I was 10 minutes away from leaving my house to go to the airport when I received a call from the attorney saying that my stay of removal was granted!
I couldn't believe any of this because my case was almost impossible, this was a miracle, miracle that thanks to God and to Michael, my attorney won my stay here in this country.
He worked hard, day and night to be able to find a way to help us, my husband and me, he found a visa so that we could legally stay.
I am happy and grateful because thanks to God and the attorney I am still here. Also, I have already gone to Mexico with my visa and returned without any problem.
Thanks to Michael, my lawyer, he never gave up and was always encouraging and always very positive --he would reassure me that we were going to win and that I wouldn't be deported.

Michael is a very knowledgeable attorney that helps his clients navigate the legal worlds of both personal injury and immigration. He is very responsive to his clients, communicates clearly, and not only cares about the legal outcome of his clients' cases, but also their well-being. I would highly recommend Mr. Presti to anyone with the need for an immigration or personal injury attorney.

Michael and played football together at Dartmouth College. His work ethic on and off the field was not surpassed. As a lawyer, I have had the opportunity to work with Michael as a friend and colleague. I trust his insight in the law and his ability to successfully advocate for his clients. I recommend him without hesitation.
