The best Immigration attorney in the Phoenix area.
Mr Robert E Coughlon Jr, is the best Immigration attorney in the Phoenix area, I was working with one immigration attorney that could not help me but never told me he couldn't but just took all my money, until a friend recommended Mr. Robert Coughlon to me. Mr Robert Coughlon took my case and helped me to get my Green card, with out him I don't know were I will be today. I am a nurse now and I am very happy to be a legal resident of the USA. Thank you so much for all your hard work Mr. Robert. I will always recommend you to all my friends and family. Stella. M

Thanks, Stella!! Congratulations on being a nurse. The United States is fortunate to have great people like you immigrate from around the world, and make this country an even better place. I'm looking forward to helping you become a US Citizen!

Friendly, honest, approachable and very knowledgable! We got our papers with his help and as he had described.
From the first time I met Robert Coughlon Jr., myself and my family trusted him. We had consulted with 3 other lawyers before him and we never went through with the immigration process, due to the lack of trust we felt for them and their sheer greediness. . Robert, from the start was open, approachable and convinced us with with his knowledge, professionalism, honesty and his plan of action to help our family. He accompanied us to immigration interviews and guided us all the way until we got our papers. He had described the immigration process and this is how it worked out, exactly! I was really stressed in the beginning but Robert explained how the process would work and we got our papers in the most pleasant and stress free way ever imagined and exactly as he had described. I can honestly say that I would highly recommend him.

Thanks, Andrea. I really appreciate your kinds words. The uncertainty and complexity of the immigration process can be very stressful for people. I'm so glad I had the opportunity to help you and your family, and to do it in a way that put your mind at ease.

A lawyer with a heart and compassion
I am a US Citizen and married a lady from Brazil. She was on the nervous side to say the least. Robert assured her that she had nothing to worry about and everything he does is legal He was efficient in preparing the paperwork and submitting them on time. Now we are coming to the end of this whole process and we are fully confident that Robert will complete it correctly. I have worked with many lawyers in my lifetime and the one standout thing you will notice that is different about Robert is that he is not arrogant in any way. Rare for a lawyer but he is a wonderful gentleman and a great attorney. Steve M,

Libero a mi esposa de ICE
Mi nombre es Ramon, y no me gusta hacer reviews en el internet pero por este abogado y por como represento a mi esposa en un caso de deportación en Eloy se gano este review. Antes de contratar a Robert contrate a 3 abogados que me salieron rateros, mentirosos y finalmente abandonaron el caso dejándome en una situación muy mal, pero dios es grande y le trajo a mi esposa este abogado faltando solamente un mes para su corte final este abogado medio cielo mal y tierra y hizo mas en en ese mes que los 3 abogados que via contratado hicieron en los 5 meses que estaban en su caso. Sim mal gaste $18,000 Dolares entre los 3 abogados un error en mi vida pero si no vias pasado por eso no me vias encontrado con Robert Coughlon hoy mi esposa no fuera liberada ni tuviera su Residencia. De todo corazón desde Febrero 28 2017 (Corte de mi esposa) en adelante y para siempre le doy las Gracias a Robert Coughlon por regresarme mi familia. Si usted esta en necesidad de un abogado que envergad le importe el bien de sus clientes y no sea abusivo en sus tarifas el abogado Robert Coughlon es el abogado para usted.

Robert Coughlon and his law firm are extremely professional and very knowledgeable about immigration law. We met with many other attorneys prior to meeting Robert, but they would all say they couldn't do anything for my mom. Thanks to Robert my mom just received her permanent residence the process took less than 6 months. I highly recommend him.

Excellent, very responsive and dilligent
In don't typically post reviews but Robert deserves it. I used Robert to renew my Green Card and finally he also handled my Citizenship application. I had initially gone to another attorney by simply using a Google and location search. However, my case had mitigating circumstances and was not as straight forward as most cases. Luckily, that attorney recommended Robert, who he felt was better suited to handle my case. He told me that in Arizona, Robert is regarded as being one of the best. He was not kidding. Robert is very Knowledgeable, he answered all my questions, he was attentive in listening to my concerns, he explained things clearly and concisely , he could give recent examples of similar circumstances, which set my mind at ease. Not only is Robert highly professional, he's very personable as well, I had the impression at every meeting that he really did care. I'd recommend Robert without any hesitation to help you navigate through a complex immigration system. I'm now a U.S citizen and I owe that to Robert. Do yourself a favor and absolutely reach out to him for your immigration needs.

knowledgeable, effective and trustworthy.
Mr. Coughlon jr. is a lawyer you need to be recommended too, that's why I have left a review. His many years as a lawyer in business in two states made me feel confident in his counsel. His rates are what any immigrant can afford compared to other lawyers with high overhead and ridiculous prices. Also always willing to help and answer questions personally and not thru an assistant.

Honesto y Responsable
Recomiendo al Sr,. Robert Coughlon Jr. por ser honesto y explicarnos bien el caso de mi hermano, quien estaba detenido por immigracion en proceso de deportacion. Desgraciadamente mi hermano no quiso pelear su caso, el decidio firmar y salir lo mas rapido de la carcel. Es dificil encontrar una persona honesta en esta rama de abogados. Doy gracias al Senor Robert, por siempre estar en contacto con nosotros los familiares e ir a visitar a mi hermano al Eloy, Az. sin costo. Estoy segura que si mi hermano haya esperado su proceso si se halla ganado el caso. GRACIAS.

Impeccable service you can rely on
I was super happy with the top-notch service I received from Robert Coughlon Jr when I needed help with my application for permanent residence in the US (green card). He saved me a lot of time and hassle with his knowledge and experience of the process involved. It's reassuring to have an expert check your information before sending off the forms which minimizes the chances of unnecessary processing delays. I'm now relying on him for my naturalization application and again his expertise and speedy responses to my questions have proven to be very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone seeking guidance on immigration issues based on my experiences with him.

A great immigration attorney
Dedication and hard work, are Robert's traits and are often rewarded. In our situation, Robert managed to win our asylum case, and for that we owe him and his team a debt of gratitude. We were referred to him by an immigration attorney in Southern California, after we moved into the phoenix area, he took the case and made it happen.

Robert is a fantastic Attorney. He is very knowledgeable and current with information regarding Immigration as well as law in general. His rates are fair and reasonable. Robert is highly ethical, never leading you to believe anything that is not factual. We would use Robert again in a heart beat and refer him to others all the time. Those we have referred to Robert, feel the same as we do. Thanks for your professionalism!

An excellent immigration attorney
Mr. Coughlon is an excellent immigration attorney and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone faced with a difficult immigration situation. Back in 2004 he took on my case when I was weeks away from certain deportation. He deftly help me navigate the complex U S immigration system to the point where I got my green card and was able to pursue my career in this country. I will be eternally grateful to this man.

Thanks, Paul. You (like many immigrants) will continue to contribute to the United States over the course of your lifetime, in many different ways. It's extremely rewarding for me to have had the opportunity to help you at a pivotal point in your life. This good feeling of being of service to people and changing lives is something that I carry with me long after the case is over. Thanks!
