I had been living abroad for quite a few years and had many dealings with immigration attorneys and almost as many bad experiences. When it came time to apply for my family's American visa's I expected an equally expensive, time consuming run around experience. To my great surprise and relief I can offer the following testimony about Mr. Cate's professional services. He told me what it would cost, how long it would take, what I had to do and what I should expect. When it was all done, he was correct in all of his projections and we did not have to resubmit paperwork or deal with a recall or second, third or fourth trip. He is very thorough and detail oriented and believe me when I tell you if he asks you for a document, no matter how difficult or time consuming it is in getting it, it will save you from pain and suffering in the long run. He knows his business!
