Excellent, Knowledgeable, Great Experience!
I found Michael to be very knowledgeable and helpful in my immigration case. After collecting the basic necessary information from me regarding my case, he took time to sit with me personally and listen to my concerns, listen to and fully answer all of my questions, and to discuss how my case can move forward. Although he has legal and office staff, I was very pleased to be communicating and working directly with him the entire time. I did not have to send messages through assistants or paralegals, as is normally the case when working with attorneys. Michael was easy to communicate with, responded to my emails and phone calls promptly and with a thorough and diligent response to each of my questions and concerns. He was not only very knowledgeable of immigration law, he was very familiar with USCIS policies and internal procedures - this insight he provided has been invaluable. Michael is also a very warm and friendly person and after meeting with him, I could tell that he genuinely cared about my case and making it move forward. My case is close to being finished, and I have to thank Michael and his law office for being such an important part of our our successful case. Highly recommended!

Excellent Immigration Attorney
In 2017 we came to Michael's law office with a very complicated situation involving adoption and immigration plus our daughter's case previously handled by another attorney was denied. Michael, a professional Immigration Attorney, successfully helped our daughter to get her green card a year ago. Since then we often contact him whenever we do not understand something and need help. He truly cares about a client's need. He treated us in a comfortable way like his family. He provided us a lot of useful information and answered any and all questions that we had concerns, for example the eligibility for naturalization - absences and continuous residence etc. He possesses outstanding knowledge of INS law. We will recommend him to anyone who needs help.

A very professional attorney
My daughter has got her green card finally. Mr. Michael Murray helped her make the difference. We came to Michael with a very complicated situation involving adoption and immigration plus my daughter was turning 18 (the age of majority). Actually my daughter’s case previously handled by another attorney was denied. After long search for an attorney I decided to try Michael because of his 5-star google reviews. Michael gave us a hope as to what he could do for us and how he was going to do it. He was very honest since day 1 and the rate he charged was reasonable. He handled my daughter’s case with a competently professional manner. He represented us at the family court twice. He was able to pay close attention to details, figure the issues out, put all the necessary paperwork together. He also delivered personalized service to his clients via phone and email. All our questions and concern were always addressed without delay. The turnaround time during the green card application was extremely fast. Michael and his team always made things clear and easy to understand, especially Tatiane who was kind and patient with us. His team always kept us up to date with everything regarding my daughter’s case. Michael is a KNOWLEDGEABLE, HONEST, EFFICIENT attorney. We want to give Michael and his team the highest regards and recommendations.

Excellent Attorney
I contacted Michael for a case I had with Immigration that another firm left pending for five years with no result. And Michael took my case lat year, and in less than 8 months I changed status, and now im a permanent Resident. He truly deserved every penny. Very professional and Ethical. Would recommend him for any case.

Outstanding Attorney
I was represented by the most knowledgeable attorney; Michael G. Murray. This attorney stands for his clients and fought your case as if you were a part of his family. My attorney was always reachable and responsive reassuring me throughout my ordeal - It felt secure knowing that my attorney will make every effort to resolve my issues. A+ for his staff, their personal service was impressive, everyone knows me by name - Michael is not only compassionate, he is also committed to your case. I can write all day long and it still won't be enough to praise how dedicated my attorney was. He out himself on the line for me and my family; he spoke out for what he believed to be right. It has been an emotional challenge but Michael G. Murray and his team addressed all issues and handled them in highly professional manner; and, we win. Thanks to their efforts. Michael is a consummate professional and a great human being; I will absolutely recommend him to anyone.

Excellent work!
My husband and I first filed his paperwork on our own in 2008, with many visits to the immigration without success. Hiring Mr. Murray was the best thing we could have ever done. Mr. Murray and his staff were very professional at all times. Today, 8 years later, my husband has a swearing in date, thanks to Mr. Murray. We were very impressed with how he handled everything. The ease he displayed made us feel comfortable about trusting him. We have no regrets. We highly recommend him to anyone who needs an immigration attorney.

Good job Michael!
Our case was difficult and long, in fact my wife and I failed the 1st interview and got denied. We reapplied instead of appealing as per Michael's advice, and we finally made it. It took over 3 years, but I am a permanent resident now. I strongly recommend their firm, My wife's happiness is priceless, thanks Michael.

Excellent service, best in the business.
My name is Michelange and I’m 17 years old and I would like to share with everyone my experience with Michael Murray P.A. Law Firm. Everyone knows is very important to be stable in the United States. My case was a very long one, it took around two years for the documents to be completed. When I first met with Mr. Murray to speak about our immigration case, he seemed very sure and confident of what our next step towards our goal of becoming a United States Residents was going to be. Mr. Murray helped us get caught up with what was needed to be done to complete, our families immigration documents. Mr. Murray represented me and my family in a very devoted and professional manner. After court, I was really interested in becoming an attorney myself, Mr. Murray offered me, one of the best opportunities to work as an intern with him along with many more talented and dedicated people, helping others take their next step towards becoming an American citizen. I highly recommend the Michael Murray P.A. Law Firm; I will be forever grateful with Mr. Murray for one of the greatest opportunities he has given me. Mr. Murray has definitely done his father’s legacy proud.

We Finally Found the Best
My family came to Michael Murray after several unfortunate outcomes that we experienced with other representation. Our case concerning my wife’s immigration status was complex and trying to navigate the process post D.O.M.A was daunting. Michael’s level of knowledge and true expertise was impressive to say the least. We felt more confident about our chances for a successful outcome immediately. With Michael, though you get so much more than just an expert in immigration law, you have a thoughtful and creative thinker that knows the ins and outs of the system better than anyone. At every step along the way he carefully explained what obstacles we faced and his strategy for addressing them and time and time again the situation played out just as he had predicted until we got the outcome we were praying for. I cannot tell you how happy both my wife and I were to have Michael and his excellent bi-lingual staff on our side. I cannot recommend this immigration professional highly enough!

Professional, Direct and Personable
We consulted Michael Murray regarding a 'tricky' immigration issue. We expected professionalism and legal expertise, and we got it 100%. But what we didn't expect was Mr Murray's personable manner and 'interest' in us as people. We recommend his services whenever the opportunity arises.

Professional, Attentive and Creative Attorney
The Murray law firm has worked on cases for my business as well as personal referrals. The firm was professional, attentive and creative while working to solve our issues. We had a contractual disagreement with a vendor that had been a persistent issue/expense for more than 2 years. The issue was heading towards a nasty legal battle. Murray’s creative approach invalidated the vendor’s claims resolving our issue. Ultimately the firm saved us vendor related expenses and legal fees. Additional we recommended the Murray firm to a friend who was arrested for narcotic possession. Once again the firm’s creative approach dismantled the case leaving the referral without a mark on their permanent record. We could not offer a higher recommendation. They take every case seriously and provide the attention you would and should expect from your attorney.

My wife is from Honduras and it was time for her to get her Green Card. I contacted Michael Murray and he was very professional and experienced. His staff was top-notch. He always answered any questions I had. My wife now has her Green Card and we could not be happier! I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone who needs a good immigration lawyer.
