Myron Russell Morales

About me

All law firms strive to provide great customer service and I am driven to work hard for my clients after my own experience as an immigrant with a firm that did not seem to care about me and my family.  The consequences of this firm's mistakes and unwillingness to fix them were real and had a negative effect on my family and our ability to function in our new society.  I do not want any of my clients to ever be in that situation and that is why I strive to find the best solutions and consider more than just what will happen at the immigration office.  If you need an attorney that can help you to navigate through the immigration system and find your way in your new country, we would like to have you as one of our valued clients.
