I very highly recommend Thomas Law Firm! I spoke with about 11 other attorneys before finding Thomas Law and they were by far the most knowledgeable and professional. I had questions that no other attorney knew how to answer. Not only did Thomas Law answer my questions, but they handled my complicated case and my husband now has his U.S Visa with his green card on its way :). We are forever grateful for the great work that they did for us.

We originally saw another lawyer in 2008 before the I601A came into effect. He explained the I601 at the time and talked to us about having to prove extreme hardship but was not helpful. In 2014, when the I601A was an option, this time we researched on the internet and found Matthew Thomas. After reading many positive reviews, we thought we would give him a try. By the time we walked out of the initial consultation, I knew he was our guy. My wife and I felt like a weight had been lifted off of our shoulders after only speaking to him for 20 minutes. He was confident yet not arrogant. His team was extremely organized and kept us on task throughout the process of the I130 and the I601A. They did not stop after the I-30 and the I601A were approved.....they continued to work with us all the way through our visit to Ciudad Juarez (only one week and we were back legally in the U.S.) even up until the time my wife received her Green Card several weeks after Matt and his team respond to e-mails very quickly; a couple of times Matt himself even responded on a Sunday morning. They have changed our family's future in a way they will never fully know. I highly recommend Matthew Thomas as your immigration attorney. They even have an interest free payment plan with reasonable rates. What are you waiting for, change your future now!

I came to the United States from Italy as a spouse of an international student. Willing to stay in the United States, my wife and I decided to apply for residency. After a careful research and a number of meetings with several attorneys, we consulted with Matthew Thomas and we decided to hire him for our case.
Since the very beginning, Matt seemed us smart, experienced, and trustable.
We felt we were in good hands.
Matt worked adamantly on our case, answering emails and phone calls as fast as the speed of light - and he never, ever missed any detail.
He was even able to answer us about questions that were out of his area of expertise, showing a broad knowledge of the law and a great open-mindedness.
When my wife and I were working on our case with Matt, we recommended him to many of our friends who were in similar cases as ours - and I can tell from their experience that Matt is doing great with them, too.
I will keep recommending Matthew Thomas to all the people I care for, because he is a great professional as well as a great person.
I am so happy we chose him and I wish him and his firm tons of success.
