My case has been a complex one from the get-go involving more paperwork than the usual to ensure my legal status is maintained at all times. Some of the best attorneys recommended to us wouldn't take or even look at our case because it would took too much work and time. It required someone like Barbara with unmatched skills and experience and most importantly who cared enough about me and my family to reach out and patiently walked with us through every step of the way. The process had had its painstaking challenges at times. We would have given up had Barbara not been very understanding and encouraging. Through this process, both my wife and I felt that we didn't just hired an attorney who was also a miracle worker, but we had found a friend. Thank you so much, Barbara and your assistants Jessica and Nicole and Adriana!!! We're forever indebted.

I met with Ms. Melendez 2 yrs ago it was a complex employment immigration case and time was running out. She was detailed and laid out a plan of action and after jumping all the government hoops and responding to all the requests from the government I finally have my green card. I had gone to tow other lawyers who didn't think it could be done. I can't thank her enough and her staff for their hard work.

Barbara and her team are excellent! My husband and I were recently married and were starting the AOS which in turn lead us to Barbara. We knew we needed an attorney we could trust and that would guide us through this process. We defiantly found this in Barbara and her assistants. They are all very knowledgeable, have top notch customer service, and are very professional. We highly recommend Barbara and her team!!

I hired Barbara Melendez to take on my ongoing case for DACA and from day one she was 100% honest about the situation I was in and she did tell me my case was complex and that I was going to need as much help as possible including a miracle due to my criminal record from prior years. I did feel like I was in the right hands right away because not all lawyers tell you things exactly they are and Barbara talked to me about the problems I was facing and how we would fight them even before bringing up how much it was going to cost me. That made me feel like she cared a lot more about her clients than how much she charges so I at that point I was very happy I found her and hired her. I was still afraid something was going to go wrong due to the fact that reducing some of my criminal charges in order to qualify for DACA was getting way too complicated but Barbara and her professional staff were always there for me fighting with everything they had. They always responded to my calls and emails right away, I never had to wait for an answer because they always answered my questions within minutes of contacting them. Every time I went to my hearings I never felt scared being there because I trusted Barbara's professionalism and I knew when they told me how court was going to go and what was going to happen it was exactly how it was going to go! If anyone is looking for an immigration lawyer you need to hire Barbara and her staff because I know for a fact that if she was able to help my case get done and get my DACA approved knowing it was a very complicated case she can definitely help anyone else! You cannot go wrong working with Barbara and her staff because they will fight for you with everything they have almost as if you were family! it would make me very happy to know whoever is out there looking for help hired her because it will be the best decision of your life. Thanks to her I'm finally done after a long very frustrating time and I got everything approved!! I get to stay with the ones I love and I don't have to be afraid to do anything I want to do in this beautiful country! Thank you Ms. Barbara for everything you guys did for me!! I highly 110% will recommend Barbara Melendez!

I hired her on 4/1 for the H1b review. It was late but she took my case anyways. She looked over the whole packet during the weekend and we had a conference call on Monday to go over missed things. Obviously, she found mistakes we made and helped me correct them. Also gave me advice on rest of the packet. I wish I hired her from the beginning to take care of the whole process instead of just the review. She addressed my concerns even after the process. Awesome lawyer. I will hire her again if I fail this H1b process and need to do another one..

My husband and I hired Barbara to help with his immigration case. She was referred to us by a friend, and the State Senator's Office knew of her saying that she was knowledgeable and skillful, so we felt we made a good choice. Barbara is very frank when giving legal advice which we found to be a trustworthy and reliable approach. She and her legal team were kind, respectful, and willing to clarify anything that we didn't understand. They were accommodating in scheduling of appointments and flexible in their means of communication. When our case became particularly difficult Barbara was informative of how I could exercise my rights as a citizen in advocating for my husband. In the end my husband received his green card and for that we are very appreciative to Barbara and her team!

My wife and I have been in he U.S. for 18 years. We have worked our way through the very tedious and difficult process of going from a student visa, to work visas (H1B and H4 respectively) to finally becoming permanent residents. Barbara has been our attorney for nearly the entire process. Not only has she been extremely professional and knowledgeable, but also a very approachable and caring human being. Even though the process of filing paperwork with the current immigration system certainly is incredibly frustrating, we have always had the peace of mind of knowing we were in the best hands possible. We have recommended her many times, and will continue to do so. Barbara and her team will always be special to me and my family. They are the ones who made it possible for us to achieve our American Dream.

Barbara helped me to get temporary green card, permanent green card, and than citizenship since my marriage. Her knowledge and experience made this process as easy as possible for me. She was always ready to answer my multiple questions and to be present on interviews when I felt her help would be needed. I would definitely recommend her to everybody going through Naturalization process.

I was so impressed with how this lawyer responded to my query from this site. She has a genuine concern for the individual first - unlike many other lawyers who only seem to care to talk money, money, and then listen to your situation to see if there is even a chance for a case. She deserves whatever she charges! I definitely recommend her!

Barbara represented us with our case, and she was a delight to work with. Her sound legal understanding, allowed for a simple and well navigated process that would undoubtedly have been stressful and difficult to undertake on our own.
Her calm demeanor in tandem with a ready smile immediately helped us feel at ease. Once she began explaining the intimidating work ahead, I realized her legal acumen was built on a well founded knowledge of the law. This with an insightful and calculated ability to maneuver through a complex system, made our case seem effortless.
I cannot convey my impression of her counsel strong enough, it is rare to find someone you can trust without reservation, who manages to take a part of your life with ease and return it in a far better condition. She improved our lives doing something that she is exceptionally good at, while being a friend and a lovely person.
We recommend her with the highest marks possible, and more.
Thank you Barbara.
