Outstanding Service Delivery!
Without getting into details, I came to the firm with what I thought may be a difficult immigration case. After a short meeting and reviewing the details Charles gave me confidence he had a strategy to ensure a good outcome. He then proceeded to walk me through the entire process from start to finish. I would highly recommend his firm for anyone with an immigration case. His depth of knowledge, experience, and ability to communicate in layman's terms is outstanding.

CHARLES BINION is really 5 stars!!!
My wife and I had failed in the interview for the 10 year green card, and USCIS sent us the letter that denied my wife permanent residential status. We had to look for help from one of the top lawyer who convinced us he would help us and guarantee 99% successful, but he screwed it and made things worse. USCIS sent us a letter of termination and put my wife on deportation proceeding. We had spent many days looking for another immigration lawyer until we came to Charles Binion. I can say he is the best immigration lawyer who is very knowledgeable and reliable. He had great experience in complicate cases waiting to be in court. He gave us hope and confidence. Especially paralegal Joanne is very kind and helpful. She always responded to all our phone calls, emails and texts. My wife finally got her 10 year green card sooner than we expected. Charles and Joanne did an outstanding work in our case. Thank you very much Charles and Joanne. You have helped relieve the huge stress and pressure from us. I would definite 100% recommend anyone needs immigration lawyer to see Charles. Don't be fool with huge advertising on TV and billboards.

Charles Bennion and his team are the ONLY reason I didnt give up. From keeping you updated to not pressuring you and being able to describe the process and knew every turn. I would have given up with them. They are amazing. They are knowledgable. They WILL take care of you!

I recommend!
After a few months trying to put together my application for my AOS, I decided to have a lawyer help me out, so I could concentrate in other things in life and have peace of mind that my AOS would run smoothly and stress free. I ended up ending having a first consultation with 2 other lawyers, until I found Charles Bennion's office while looking for the best rated lawyers in town. Hiring Charles Bennion was the best decision I made. I wish I've done this decision earlier and not lost hours of searching for answers in Google and still being lost in the overwhelming amount of forms, documents and tips about how to assemble everything nice and neatly. So, even if someone like me, with a uncomplicated case, wants to go live life and not stress about losing hours watching other people's youtube videos about how they did it. Just hire Charles and don't stress about it anymore. No doubt about it, Charles and his assistant Joanne are very nice people and also the best team you'll find to help you out in this process.

Excellent and Knowledgeable Lawyer and Assistant
When I say Chuck and Joanne are one heck of a team, it's an understatement of the century. I cannot put into words how they have blessed our lives! They helped my family stay together here in the U.S. and we couldn't be more grateful!! My husband had immigration issues due to forgetting simple paperwork and the timeline to turn it in expired. That sent us on a 4 year long journey of stress and fear. His case was an interesting one and every lawyer we talked to didn't quite know how to approach it and were overcharging us, until we met Chuck. He was fair, affordable and flexible... and his wonderful assistant Joanne took our case head on with such confidence and assistance, it eased our anxiety about the "legal" experiences we had before with a lawyer that just wasn't doing their job at all. Chuck took the time to explain everything... all the what ifs and what to expect. But he did it in such a way and with great wisdom that it prepared us and made us feel more confident about our case. It was our lack of understanding that I feared would set us up to be taken advantage of but Chuck is very honest and informative. Joanne helps with whatever you need regarding paperwork and any questions that need to get back to Chuck. She is very VERY good at her job and is a great asset to Chuck. My husband's application for residency was approved and we will be coming back to apply for US Citizenship when the time comes! What a wonderful experience despite all of the odds that were against us. Thank you Chuck and Joanne, without people in your field such as yourselves, this process would be a complete mess. Have that talk with Chuck today you guys! So worth it!!

Chuck is the Tom Brady amongst the field of immigration lawyers
My wife and I had a very difficult immigration case. We had 2 other immigration attorneys(who cost us a fortune and 5 years of our life in misguided attempts) before we found Mr. Chuck Bennion and the lovely Ms. Joann. My own father who is a lawyer did not want to be involved in our immigration case. My father told me to find an immigration expert, someone with years and years of experience and someone whose only focus and area of expertise is immigration. I took his advice and still went thru 2 other guys before fate introduced us to Chuck. My wife and I found Chuck and Joann, top notch people. First of all, they are honest and will be direct with you....even when they know you don’t want to hear the news they are telling you. 2nd -I could always get in touch with the office, never felt left out of the loop and felt guided through out the whole process. Follow up and follow thru are very difficult things to do for a lot of people, myself included. It was effortless with these guys. I appreciate it. 3- Cost, they aren’t gouging you, Chucks pricing is very reasonable and I am truly grateful for that. He could charge double his prices and I would still think that would be a fair price. Folks, My wife and I have spent a lot of money navigating our wonderful Judicial and Immigration system and spent more on lawyers. Chuck and Joann, well worth it. 4- They fielded questions, phone calls, meetings, emails and met with & tried to help my wife’s extended family. My wife's family had the same experience we did with Chuck. He flat out told you what can and cannot happen and what exactly he can do and not. Some proceeded with action and some did not due to Chuck telling them the truth on the limitations of the law. 5: Chuck is fluent in Spanish and very comfortable speaking it. He is very knowledgeable and informative. We didn’t feel left out, they guided us every step of the way. In conclusion, I am thankful for Chuck and Joann. Because of them, my wife is safe and secure. We do not feel the stress, anxiety and fear that we were going through for so long we thought it was a normal feeling. Our friends and family can physically see how relieved we are for this to be over with. Thank you guys!!! - Aaron D.

Smooth Sailing!
We are blessed to have found Charles to take care of our case! I loved how knowledgeable he was of the system and how he stays updated with the information and regulations. He and his staff were always very friendly and very professional. They explained the whole process to us so we understood it all and kept us up to date with our case. Not much more to say but that it was smooth sailing! Don't even bother looking at other immigrantion lawyers, just call Charles, just me it will save you time and money!

The best lawyer in Las Vegas
The best lawyer in Las Vegas. I’ve checked so many different places for lawyers for consultation. I had a simple question and no other lawyer could give me a legal advice. Because of lack of their knowledge and also they didn’t want to spend their time on me unless I hire them as my lawyers. But Charles Benion was different. He was very professional and very knowledgeable. I recommend him to everyone.

Great Lawyer...
I have being wanted to right this review since August last year. Mr Bennion knowledge on immigration is excellent. My Mother's permanent resident application was stressing me. So at the last minute I decided to hired him . He explained everything so well without rushing. Everyone in his office was so kind. At the end my Mother received her green card just 2months later. Something that I have been working on it for 7 months on my own. This lawyer knows his job. I highly recommend him. Thank you so much.... Elise L

Great lawyer!
After 24 years of keep trying to find a good lawyer, finally I did.. during that time I met with several lawyers in California and Nevada, with aggressive marketing strategies on TV and radio, promising to help in several immigration situations, but besides giving me incorrect information, overpriced fees and no hope, none of them were able to provide the service and professionalism that Mr. Bennion and Joanne provided. Very caring, very professional and awesome results. Thank you very much for all you did!!!

A lawyer in the best sense of the word
Counselor Bennion advised me concerning the specifics of my situation, explaining the laws that apply to it, the potentiality of the various possible strategies currently available, and the strategies that might be possible in the near future, as politics of Washington turn. I find the lawyer proficient and knowledgeable, the man honest and trustworthy.

Adjustment of status
For everyone who is looking for a knowledgeable and efficient attorney, you can deffinitely trust your case with Mr Bennion. I did a thorough research and talked to several attorneys before deciding to hire him, and I am extremely happy with my choice. He is one of the few who actually take the time to sit down with you, listen to your case and explain the whole process so that you know what you have in front of you. And he does it every time you have a misunderstanding or question. His assistant, Laura Lybarger, is amazing as well. She is very knowledgeable herself, not only professional but also very compensionate and understanding. And extremely neat and organized may I say. They both looked into the matter, knew precisely what there was to do and guided me through this whole process. Only 3 months after my husband had applied for me, I had my resident card. We did not encounter any delays or setbacks. For whoever is uncertain in any immigration matter, I strongly recommend consulting Mr Charles Bennion!
