I first came to El Paso in 1994 as a soldier Stationed at Ft. Bliss, TX.  My time here was initially interrupted by four tours of duty to the Middle East.  Because of these early formative experiences, I love to travel, learn of new and different cultures, food, and art.  I have lived in five countries including three Mexican states and six U.S. states plus the District of Columbia.

El mejor abogado de inmigracion
Me ayudaron a que no me deportaran. Despues de bastante batallar con mi caso, Villalobos & Moore me cerraron mi caso ante el juez.

Great Immigration Attorney
As an employee and client of Mr. John Moore I have developed great appreciation for all the hard work he puts into all his clients. Mr. Moore helped me through my Adjustment of Status. He was very professional and made me feel a lot confident during my interview. He cares for military families and guides them through the immigration process. I highly recommend Mr. Moore.

Very knowledgeable and professional. No better than him.
I have my Work Visa thanks to him. He answered all my questions and concerns and was able to successfully win my case. He is an Ivy League graduate that works in Immigration because of his passion to help immigrants. He will be my Immigration Lawyer forever.

Great attorney!
If you need an attorney while in El Paso, Texas I would completely recommend you put you case in the hands of Villalobos & Moore. I was fairly getting to El Paso when my mother was arrested for saying goodbye to my brother at the airport. She is illegal and therefore got taken under custody. I schedule with other attorneys to see what they could do for my mom yet I could easily tell they are crappy unprofessional attorneys!!! Yeah it's hard to get to the attorney yet not impossible and worth the wait. Don't trust other attorneys that only say they can do so much yet just want the cash. Blessings for all the hard work you and your team do for the people!!!!

What happened to your mother was a complete injustice. I'm so happy that she is now safely free from detention and free to live her life with her family, without risk of deportation. Thank you for your review!

Me ayudaron a salir de inmigracion
La firma Villalobos & Moore me ayudó a salir bajo fianza. A pesar de no saber quiénes eran me hicieron sentir en confianza y todo salio muy bien. Un amigo dentro de la prisión me los recomendo, yo le pedí a mi esposa que los contactara y tomaron mi caso. Gracias a Dios y a ustedes todo salio bien. Estoy agradecido por ellos. Abogados previos ya me habían dicho que no se podía hacer nada y que me iban a deportar y John Moore al abogado manejado de Villalobos me dijo que el si podía hacer algo. Hoy voy de regreso a mi casa a Arkansas con mi familia. Doy gracias por ellos.

More than satisfied
I am more than satisfied with the services I did obtain from the firm Villalobos and Moore. They worked with me in my process to obtain a Residence Visa through a National Interest Waved Case. This is one of the most difficult cases a Migration Lawyer could face since these cases dealt with international scientists or very specialized professionals who are interested to migrate and to contribute with the enrichment of the American Society. These cases demand Law Specialists with sufficient knowledge and clear understanding of the particular talents of each applicant, and this is one of the most important strengths of Villalobos and Moore. All of the members and staff of this firm are very kind, friendly, and professional and are always taking care of the needs of their customers. Mr. John Moore and all his team are very honest, and they transmit a lot of confidence to their customers. My wife and I corroborate the quality of their services when we received great comments about the quality of our file from the Officers at the American Consulate in Ciudad Juarez when we attended to our final interview. Overall, I feel more than satisfied with the services we received and I truly recommend working with Villalobos and Moore to anyone interested to conduct any immigration process. They will make very easy and very trustworthy the entire process.

Yes, other attorneys said that they could not secure a bond, a careful understanding of the law told me that we could. I'm so glad that your family is reunited. Thank you for your review!

Best for Immigration Bonds!
He was able to help my mother stay in the US by winning her a low bond in front of an Immigration Judge. Simply the best lawyer I have dealt with in years. He is very talented.
Response from John Moore June 12, 2015
These are very kind words. Thank you Mr. Varela for the review! If there is ever anything else I can do for you and your family, please let me know.

Best Immigration Lawyer Firm
When I began looking for an Immigration Lawyer, I tried to have the best firm according to my expectations, and fortunately, I reach Villalobos & Moore. John Moore and his team are really focused on your requirements and take you in a fast step-by-step process in order to achieve your goals. In my case, I was looking for a Business Visa, and, of course, I got it! Additional to the results achieved, the most important was that they really understand my case and always gave me a true personal attention, and believe me, I think this put them apart from others firms. Thanks Luis, Benjamin, Maria and of course John, for all your great support. Osvaldo Basfleet LLC

Lost 3500.00 for nothing
John Benjamin Moore, Did not represent us and did nothing on our case, did not sign at the court house to show that he was representing my wife. Being a fellow veteran he made promises that he did not keep. My wife relied on me and I made a huge mistake with MR. Moore, don’t make the same mistake I made, on top of this he requires you to pay all your money up front.

I never got a call back
I do not because this attorney never returned my call. I called him three times to schedule a consultation and never bothered to call me. The receptionist did not even give me an apology for not getting call back. Really poor customer service I definitely not recommend him.
