I have been David’s client since 2003 to date and he has worked tirelessly to win all my cases that seemed impossible by my previous layers that I first contacted.
David has the knowledge, humor and expertise to handle complicated cases like the ones I was faced with. He has always been on my side keeping me informed of every step and process that we needed to take.
I can not say enough about him, nether can I thank him enough. But he is simply my hero. I’m a green card holder and happy to recommend David to all of you out three faced with very complicated immigration cases. He’s truly a winner and he works to win all cases.

Dave Harston handled my pemanent residence case, after he had handled my H1-B case. He has worked my cases since 2001. All my cases(H1B & Permanent Residence) were handled in a very honest, professional, responsive & disciplined way. All his great work led to a successful approval, with no questions or request for additional evidence by the immigration authorities.
I strongly recommend Dave Harston for any immigration case that you may have

My husband had a very difficult case based on some issues that followed him from his home country. Our first lawyer did not properly inform us of his rights, nor did she do any homework to help immigration better understand his life situation. When we saw Dave for the first time, his firm had been recommended to us as the best in Denver, and he agreed to see us on only a day's notice. He reviewed our files and for the first time, properly informed us of what we were up against. However, rather than just give up on us, regardless of how difficult he knew our case to be, he represented us well, but most importantly, he did his homework by researching my husband's home country's laws, which ultimately made all the difference in the world for us. My husband became a permanent resident against all odds last May. Despite Dave's doubts, he never gave up on us, nor did he shirk his responsibilities. We now live in peace and with gratitude.

David is a good friend and an incredible mentor. Ever since the day I met David he has been extremely generous in offering invaluable advices in various matters relating to the practice of law. He is not your typical attorney: he gives back to the community through participation in pro bono legal events. He is a truly great immigration lawyer with a big heart.
