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.

Myron is truly a top immigration lawyer
My husband and I had a fantastic experience working with Myron at Quan Law Group. We are not immigration newbies, as we have worked with a handful of immigration attorneys around the country for various immigration matter/visa type. We came to understand how important a knowledgeable, experienced, engaged and passionate lawyer is, and importantly, how difficult they are to come by. For our marriage case, we have consulted and interviewed half a dozen lawyers, including many that we have worked with before and have great respect for. 10 minutes into our meeting with Myron, and despite having never met him before, we know we've found our lawyer. Not only does Myron know the in and out of immigration laws, he can answer every single questions with specific details that other lawyers failed to mention. Most of our questions are not straightforward and plain-vanilla. It was clear that he had thoroughly thought about them in the course of his practice, and he is truly obsessed with details - a great trait for an immigration lawyer. We can tell that he also has an excellent understanding of the current trend and recent development in the immigration space. We are very happy with the final product and are appreciative of Myron's advise all along the way. Last but not least, Myron's assistant, Ziya, was also fantastic to work with. She is very detail-oriented and always there to respond to our inquires. This is a dream team that we would recommend to anyone!

I married a US citizen in June 2014 (I'm British), Myron and his team (Paula especially is amazing) sorted me out in 3 months. As well as being amazingly well priced, they go above and beyond with their services. I am using Myron to petition for my sister also. Go see him, you won't regret it!

Thank you
First, I'd like to commend Myron Morales' staff for always being helpful and prompt. His firm recently helped my family with Naturalization, B2 visa for my sister and her family, additionally, my brother just consulted with him regarding a special Immigrant visa for diplomatic, we trust them which is very important especially when it is dealing with immigration status. Secondly, to the person who is upset because of the $60 consultation fee, it's only fair, and it's inexpensive, when you compare it to other immigration attorneys who charge more. If you choose to move forward they even deduct the fee from your bill. Seems like customer service wasn't the issue, the issue appears to be that you want free advice. There are programs available for people in need of financial assistance. I assure you, there is always an option for low income individuals/families.

I have always had the idea of lawyers saying the right things to get your money, then afterwards they no longer care. You have to go looking for them, they are either to busy with a new client to attend any concerns you may have, and in the end, they keep your money, and then say your best outcome is to plead guilty because they don't care to pursue your case even if you are innocent, because like I said, they've already got their payments. Mr. Myron on the other hand is the complete reverse of all I have just described of a lawyer. I was placed in a position where I was given 3 days or less to find an immigration attorney. I didn't know where to begin, and in legal matters I am completely naive. Needless to say in a moment of despair, my wife ccalled a lawyer whom we almost hired, and seconds away from hiring him, I decided to check his ratings! That was the smartest idea I could've made! This man was a scammer. So I seeked further and God placed Mr. Myron Russell Morales on my screen. The second he spoke to me, I felt a sense of relief. I hired him and he has walked with me every step of the way!! You don't have to try tracking him down like other attorney's because he is the one pushing for your success!!! Any little doubt, he takes the time to explain to your understanding, no matter how naive to legal matters one is. He is not the attorney that takes pride in the amount of money he gets from client's, he takes pride in the amount of success he hands his client's! He is passionate in what he does, and gives his client's, not what he takes!! What I felt so impossible to reach, he has made it possibly and I am moments away from receiving my work permit! BEST attorney you can find, and worth his price for my freedom!!! THANK YOU MR. MYRON RUSSELL MORALES AND GOD BLESS YOU AND JUAN BOTH!!!!!

Superb legal counsel.
Myron was more than a legal counsel to us, he really became our friend. Just an unbelievably nice guy who cares about each and every case that he is working, who is remarkably skilled and knowledgeable in his field.

Best immigration lawyer!
Working with Myron was easy and with great results. Myron was able to find best solution for us, both in terms of speed and costs. Also, where others lawyers just guessed a strategy, Myron new right away what will work and what not. Thank you!
