Caso en corte de inmigración
Gane mi caso de asilo en la corte gracias a la ayuda de Alexander. Desde que tomó mi caso, demostró un alto nivel de profesionalismo y me guió a lo largo de todo el proceso. No solo logró que reabrieran mi caso en la corte, sino que también me asesoró en cada paso del camino. Cuando llegó el día de la audiencia, me hizo sentir segura y confiada. Su desempeño fue excelente y, gracias a su defensa, logramos ganar el caso. Si buscas a un profesional excepcional, no dudes en contactar a Alexander.

Mr. Vail and team were consummate professionals for the duration of our case, from initial consultation thru successful resolution. As clients, my wife and I value competence, access, and responsive and timely communication, and Alex and team were the exemplars of all three. Moreover, we truly appreciated the fact that Mr. Vail managed our expectations throughout the extensive process, which is no doubt a reflection of his knowledge and mastery of immigration law. My wife and I are grateful for Mr. Vail and team, and we would confidently recommend them to anybody in need of a simply outstanding immigration attorney.

Best Immigration Lawyer in Vegas.
The immigration process can be a scary one. I have tried doing it by myself before I started working with Alexander and it was a nightmare. Alex was always caring about my specific case. He was also super realistic which made me trust him more. I never got any false promises and, at times, he was pretty blunt. I received my green card this past September as a VAWA applicant and even though the immigration took a long time, Alex and the crew were always quick with keeping me updated. I will be forever grateful for their help and I’ll always recommend Alex because without him I’d probably still stressing.

Excellent Immigration Attorney
I had the privilege of working with Alex on my recent case. His expertise and dedication were truly impressive, and the result was a total success. Alex and Diana communicated every step of the way, making sure I understood the legal process. Alex’s attention to detail proved his commitment to achieving the best results. I strongly recommend Alex for any immigration needs. Whatever the case, Alex will choose the best option to ensure the approval of your application.

Immigration
highly recommend Law office of Alexander R Vail. Attorney Alexander is the best attorney he is honest about the whole process explains to you the whole process in a way you have no questions. He helped my mom get her residency fast which I was very shocked given that immigration always gets prolonged. He is kind, and compassionate but most of all he definitely fights for you. He is the attorney you need in your corner. Diana is his paralegal she is also the best she’s great at communicating and a kind soul. Her communication is vital to such a stressful and important process. She literally takes the stress away. She’s quick in response and always finds a way to get you what you need. Overall these two are a power team I knew when I meet them they would get done what needed to get done. I wish them an abundance of blessings and success.

Thank You Alex!
I would recommend the Law Office of Alexander Vail to anyone looking for help on their immigration case. My wife and I are very grateful for Alex’s help on her case. We originally just used a notary and tried to do her green card case without a lawyer, which caused a delay— do yourself a favor and consult with Alex. You’ll be glad you did. Alex is highly intelligent, patient, honest, and above all is a great communicator. I emailed him many times during our process with questions and he always got back to me, often within an hour, and put my worries at ease. Alex knows the ins and outs of immigration. He is an expert in his field, and so is his paralegal Diana. Every interaction we had with them was smooth and professional. Eventually my wife’s case was approved, just like Alex assured us it would be. We should have gone to him when we first started her process. It really is invaluable to have someone like Alex in your corner fighting for you. We can’t recommend him enough.

Knowledgable, efficient, and gets results
I cannot possibly express how amazing Alexander is. His knowledge and work ethic are top notch. We’ve had 12 different family members arriving over the last 18 months seeking asylum in the US. Those 12 people break down into 5 individuals or family groups, which is 5 separate court cases and each have different immigration challenges. In each case, we were pleasantly surprised at how swiftly each step in their immigration was achieved. While each immigration case is different, Alexander gives you the best chance of success. The fact we returned to him 5 times should say something.

Six stars out of five.
We hired Mr. Vail to obtain naturalization for our young, adopted daughter, and he did a phenomenal job overall. Anytime that we needed to speak with him over the phone, needed in person consultation or simply had a question to ask over text or email, he and his assistant were on top of it! The entire process was simple, streamlined and efficient; it helps that anything he needs to communicate he does it with excellence. Our daughters process had taken a few years due to the adoption process and dealing with government agencies during Covid but in summary, Mr. Vail and Miss. Gensler are absolutely incredible and we couldn't have chosen a better team!

Smartest and most competent lawyer I have EVER worked with. My situation, as it is with most with immigration issues, was quite complicated. Alexander helped me through it all to obtaining my permanent residence—something I thought I’d never get.
