I have been a client of Cathy's for many years and she has always been very open and honest about what would happen in the process of my case. I have recommended many people to her both family and friends to see if she too could help them out. I had a sister in law that I had sent her to talk to Cathy and Cathy told her that she had no real hope on winning her case. Well my sis in law did not like that answer and went to another attorney that promised her the world. Well after $30,000 later in attorneys fees what Cathy said would happen happened and she got deported anyways. Her intrigurity is surpassed by no one.

After going to see a few different attorneys for our immigration case, and to be quite frankly terrified what they told us, we were told by a friend to go the law office of Kretz & Romero. We had been left with little hope until we walked into Kretz & Romero. We had an initial consultation with Caterina Kretz and it was like night and day from the previous meeting with attorneys. We also had left the consultation feeling we had been told the honest truth in our case. Caterina did not sugar coat our situation and she told us our case would not be easy to win but she and her firm would do everything to help us. I liked how she commented that we are not just hiring her but her partner as well because they are a true team and want to help people. She and her entire staff kepted us up to date and I was amazed how quickly our case gor resolved! From out initial consultation to meeting with immigration our case was solved in 6 months. We highly recommend Caterina and her entire staff . They will be open and honest with what they can and can not do in your case. All I can say is they truely touched and changed our lives!

I endorse Caterina Kretz. She is aggressive, tenacious, honest and hard working with an unstoppable work ethic. Caterina always has her client's best interest at heart and will do everything possible to fight for the rights of her clients. She is an immigrant herself, and was raised by two immigrant parents. Caterina has received some impressive awards over the years, including: Award of Appreciation from the Albuquerque Border City Project. Certificate of Recognition from the Legal Aid Society of Albuquerque. Certificate of Recognition from the Mexican Consulate in Albuquerque Certificate of Appreciation from the New Mexico Commission on the status of women. Certificate designating Caterina S. Kretz as Consulting Attorney of the Mexican government. Highly recommended.

I highly endorse Caterina “Cathy” Kretz. Being an immigrant herself, she is passionate and dedicated to getting every one of her clients the best outcome possible. She is kind, extremely intelligent, and knows how to get results. She is extremely well-respected in the legal community for good reason. Fellow attorneys whom she has worked with notice her ethics, client service, and commitment to every case she undertakes.
