Highest Quality of Representation
My case was super complicated and difficult. I have been struggling for the past 30 years to get a green card with many different representations and Mr. Garcia has been the best. He explained the entire process very well. Mr. Garcia, and his team were very responsive and efficient. He helped me prepare for my interview and personally came down to sit with me at the interview and provided support. We would highly recommend hiring Mr. Garcia to anyone that needs help through an immigration process.

Immigration green card process
As a very young couple going through this process, Mr.Garcia at first explained the entire process very well , throughout he was very responsive along with his team. And finally he flew to Chicago for our interview. We highly recommend for everyone that need help during an immigration process to hire Mr. Garcia .

Stellar Service and Expert Guidance
I met Alex in February 2015 as I shopped around for an immigration attorney to help file a K-1 Fiancee Visa. Out of the several lawyers with whom I spoke to, Alex seemed genuinely engaged in our complex story and invested in helping us through the end. I recall thinking that he had a command of the processes that we were yet to face, and his prices were reasonable compared to other immigration lawyers. I hired him following the initial consultation and he and his staff worked on every phase of our case, from compiling the initial materials to include with the application to preparation for the consular interview. Alex was fantastic. We returned to Alex with various other questions as my wife worked her way up the immigration documentation ladder and recommended his services to everyone we knew with immigration needs. Ultimately, my wife contracted Alex to assist with the naturalization process. As in every other case, Alex and his staff delivered outstanding service and were available for questions and concerns throughout. On the day of the interview, Alex accompanied my wife to speak with the agent. He seemed to know everybody at the USCIS office on the 281 which reassured my wife as she prepared to perform her best on the exam. She passed and was sworn in the following day! Alex's guidance along the journey was indispensable and we couldn't recommend him and his staff higher. Although my wife's immigration journey is complete, we will continue to send our friends and family to Alex without hesitation.

From Green card application through becoming a US Citizen.
I met my wife in Malaysia. Alex guided us through the legal process starting with her becoming a permanent resident and concluding this week with her recieving a Naturalization certificate this week. We couldn't be happier. It took a lot of the stress out of the process and eliminated delays through mistakes and misunderstandings.

Excellent Reprecentation
I had consulted with other immigration law offices before hiring Mr.Garcia. Our case was some how complex and other law firms had made it look to easy to be done and that usually can become more expencive later. Mr. Alejandro studied out my case before accepting it, He was very honest and explained the outcomes upfront and explained the strategies that he will follow to make the case in our favor . Everything in the process went as he had explained before. I was able to obtain my permanent resident application thru my wife approved on 02/2019 . I will highly recommend his services. Mr. Alex garcia definitely knows his stuff!
