One of the best!
I met Joseph back in 2015, somebody recommended him to my husband, this person spoke really good things about him; indeed, once We met him He showed us a lot of respect, He is very professional and He gets so involved in the case, from the very first day until you get results. First I got my work permit, then my resident card and just recently He helped me to apply for citizenship. I definitely will recommend him. Adriana

Nightmare
PLEASE READ THIS! I need to share my experience with Joseph Muller. I found him online and it got my attention his 5 stars and good reviews so I decided to hire him as my attorney to help me with the process of getting my green card. At first was amazing, everybody told me about hire an attorney for this process so I was happy to have someone to trust. We couldn’t pay at once his fees, so we both, Joseph and us, agreed that we will make small payments every month or so, since the process is so long, we had more than time to do it. By that time, one of my friends was in the same process but with a different attorney, and she was keeping me informed about everything, but not Joseph, so I sent him emails asking him for info that I think I should have known, like the medical exam is valid for 4 years, like I was able to renew my drivers license, the covid vaccine was a requirement for green cards, etc. I had the chance to get my medical exam done before this, but he told me in a couple emails, I didn’t need it yet, so I trusted him. I couldn’t get the vaccine, he expressed “it will be very expensive and they will likely deny it” “They are extremely rare waivers” “the waiver is pretty difficult to get”, etc. I was so desperate, so hopeless, and the attorney that I thought was helping me, was not just not helping me but taking my faith and broken my life apart and my family’s. I told him I just wanted to go with my husband to the interview. And that is not the end, he decided to end the contract since I didn’t pay off his fees( I just owed him the last payment of $200). He abandoned me more than half way. I had to do everything by myself, including the waiver. He made my case a nightmare, longer and more than $1000 expensive. When I asked him that the least he could do was getting part of my money back since he didn’t finish my case, his answer was NO. Honestly, I couldn’t keep the money for a client which I know I messed up, but he did, and he didn’t care. So no, I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND JOSEPH MULLER. Nobody deserves what he made me and my family went through. There are so many other attorneys that really care about their clients and they will fight for them. I hope nobody else has a problem with him.

Response from Joseph Muller March 7, 2023
Dear Esther, congratulations on the approval of your cases. Your contract was canceled because you refused to meet to prepare for your interview and stopped making payments. Those were your responsibility and you agreed to that in your contract. You were given accurate information at every part of the process, and we are not responsible for the government changing vaccination requirements midway through your case. You and many other people faced serious challenges during the pandemic, but those are out of our office’s control.
