Ms. Gupana instructed me about what to expect and how to handle every step of the case. She laid out her strategy even before it all began. Thanks to her my record is still clean. She negotiated the case and didnt accept anything less than a dismissal. She was very clear about what she wanted from me. I only had to go to court once and never had to think about it again. Thank you Ms. Gupana!

She was a beast when fighting my criminal and immigration cases.
From the first day I met with Ms. Gupana, she was very sincere and confident about helping me with my case. She explained to my family the whole process I would have to endure in fighting my criminal and immigration case, she achieved everything she explained would happen. She exhibited how very influential and connected she was when it came to my criminal case, and was a beast about getting the deal she demanded. She was very diligent, she told me both my cases might take eight months to beat but she got them dropped in two months. She is a very fair, determined and youthful lawyer she came through for me in the clutch and I recommended her to any body facing criminal or immigration charges.

Very friendly and helpful. She knew what to do and guided me through the process. Always on top of my case. Good thing I found her.

Yo estaba en procesos de deportacion con muy pequeñas probabilidades de permanecer en el pais. Christina pudo cancelar mi orden de deportacion y ahora ya puedo estar en este pais con mis niños. Christina es muy responsable y muy clara con las respuestas, muy abierta a cualquier duda que uno tenga. La recomiendo mucho. Cualquier persona que acuda a ella, le resovera sus problemas.

Mi Asilo politico fue aprobado. Ya soy Residente Permanente.
Yo tenia un caso de Asilo Politico que otro abogado abandono. La abogada Christina Gupana se hizo cargo de mi caso, lo reviso, lo trabajo y gracias a Dios, fue aprobado en menos de dos meses después de mi entrevista en inmigración y ahora ya soy residente permanente. Christina estuvo siempre al pendiente de mi caso. Es muy buena abogada y sobre todo muy amable y atenta. Recomiendo que si tienen un caso pendiente, no duden en llamarla.

Abogada muy profesional y dedicada. La recomiendo ampliamente.
Quiero dar las gracias y toda mi apreciacion a la abogada Christina por el profesionalismo y dedicacion con que resolvio mi caso, que era muy complicado y yo tenia muy pocas esperanzas en solucionar. La recomiendo ampliamente y le doy todo mi respeto.
Posted by Johnny Aquino | September 30, 2013
Everybody was very pessimistic with my case from the beginning. The judge even asked me why I am fighting this case when he will deport me for sure. The other attorney also told me I only had a 1% chance of winning but Christina won the case for me. Now I have my green card back and my life back. I will absolutely recommend her.

Muy agradecida con la manera que llevo mi caso la abogada
Despues de haber consultado con varios abogados, la abogada Christina Gupana me dio mas confianza de la manera que me explico con la verdad la situacion de mi caso. Me explico lo bueno y lo malo que podia pasar y decidi arriesgarme a que ella llevara mi caso. El dia hoy ella me ah ayudado mas que otros abogados. Y gracias a Dios siguo en el pais con mi familia.
