Excellent Service with Excellent Results
I really want to thank Eric Price's legal firm and especially Karina Salazar who did an excellent job in representing my case which was very difficult in many aspects. I'm a US Citizen & wanted to bring my husband to the US. I had fear and doubted that my case would get approved because there was a big age difference between my husband and I which added to other sensitive circumstances surrounding the case. My 601a waiver was approved and so did my case in my home country Consulate. I can only say thank you for their professionalism and dedication with my case! I highly recommend their office and just like my case was a success, so will yours.

I highly recommend Eric Price
I would recommend this law office. My initial consultation with Mr. Eric Price he informed me about the process, on how long it would take. There were times were I would have questions pertaining to my case and Mr. Price was very professional answering my emails or providing me with a phone appointment. I was pretty impressed! At times I would contact his office and speak to his staff or paralegals if the paralegal was busy I would leave a message and I would get a return call. I know it gets frustrated when it comes to court dates and legal questions but overall Mr. price is only an email away. When your case is ready for court or appearance of some sort they were quick to provide the information I need to provide to them. I’m a true believer of working together with them to provide them with proper paperwork they need to proceed with my case, keep in mind each case is different. I would definitely recommend Mr Eric Price and his staff!

Excellent, top-notch team.
Attorney Eric Price and his Mission Valley team recently helped me gain Permanent Residency through my wife. It was a year and a half long process through which my wife and I had a ton of questions and requested constant meetings with Dayana, our paralegal. Dayana and her staff were extremely accommodating and would always reply to our emails in a timely fashion and would agree to meet when it was best for us. Towards the end of the process, we received our email for the National Visa Center that I officially had my appt in Ciudad Juarez. Dayana met with us and gave us all of the necessary paperwork. In addition to that, we met with the on-site lawyer, Melissa. She was extremely thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. Her questions helped me feel prepared and when it came time to interview, her advice gave me the confidence I needed in such a big moment. All in all, I am glad that out of all of the options for immigration attorneys in San Diego, I chose Eric Price and his legal team. They have my business should anyone I know every be in a similar situation. I can fully reap the benefits of being in the US thanks to hard working team at the Mission Valley office.

Amazing team
After looking around near our hometown in the Bay Area , and couldn't fine any good lawyers.We reached out to Eric Price , from the first phone enter view we had , he was honest , and knowledgeable. Exactly its been a year at go we contracted Eric Price and yesterday we had our interview with immigration . My husband was approved for his Green Card , few hours after we were done with the interview , we received an email with the APPROVED status. Susan our lawyer was amazing getting all of the correct paper work ready. Mitzy was the one who prepared us for the interview and she did an AMAZING job. Its was a long drive for us from Gilroy to LA when we had to bring meet to sign original documents , but it was all worth it. Also they are not to expensive like other Lawyers we contacted. I would highly recommend their Law office..

Thank you Mr.Price
Got my green card super fast (started our case in February, gained G.C. in August) right after court. Eric was very helpful, took a great care of us, been ALWAYS responding to our emails, and we’ve asked to go with us to the interview. Knowing how busy he is with all the other cases, Mr. Eric found time in his schedule and was there with us. We’ve got our approval the same day and G.C. came within 7 days by mail. Big big Thank you, Eric and team. Looking forward applying to citizenship and working together again. Wishing you all the best clients :)

No me arrepiento de mi decisión y se los recomiendo al máximo!
Me ha ido muy bien con la firma del abogado Eric Price. Desde el primer momento todos han sido muy cordiales y profesionales. Ellos han ayudado a muchísimas personas a obtener beneficios. Al inicio estaba indecisa y no sabía con quién hacer el contrato. Todo eso cambio cuando vi en un reportaje, cuanto se esforzó en ayudar a una familia y me decidí en sacar mi cita.

Honest and professional
Got a very good impression, my case is not easy and it will take years until I can fix my immigration situation. Everything was explained clearly. He gave me a plan to move forward to the goal.

Impressive Law Firm
I'm very pleased with the attorney Eric Price. He helped my mom become a resident in 5 months! I was a bit skeptical at first because I didn't understand the process. However, after the attorney and his assistants guided me through the immigration process, I felt very comfortable with him. I felt his attorney fees were reasonable. I've read the bad comments below and it's clear those individual do not understand how a professional law firm functions. Overall, this is a fantastic law firm and I'm so happy to recommend them to friends and family. Thanks again!

Granted Stay & Naturalizing Soon
I heard about Eric Price on the radio. Before coming to Eric I checked out his reviews & profile. I was impressed by his profile. Our case took 2 yrs to complete. Eric was honest in telling us the time frame it could take (we expected longer), and they answered every question and concern we had after we consulted our case with them (Free Consultation). We didn't feel rushed or pressured. Overall, Mr. Price is extremely honest when taking a case and will not waste your time or money if he can't help. My husband had previous felonies and misdemeanors from over 15 yrs ago and in the process of being deported. He had been in the States for over 37 yrs and married to a U.S. citizen. I know Immigration attorneys are costly so we didn't want to spend unnecessary money if we weren't going to win, but we also had to try. I was informed by his staff that "Eric will not take a case he feels he can't win", which made me feel more at ease. We Couldn't Be Happier, my husband got his residency back and will now be starting his naturalization process through Eric Price. His office is extremely busy, so yes, even with an appointment we waited about half hour (BUT IT WAS WORTH THE WAIT). The staff is very polite and pleasant and they take care of their clients. Immigration attorneys are costly, so if your going to get one, look for an honest one too. Highly Recommend Eric Price and his staff. Another recommendation? The Judge's final words to us.. saying we had picked a "really smart attorney".

Thank you Mr. Price!
Mr. Price and his support staff are awesome. They prepared my documents and Mr. Price did a great job in court! I got my lawful permanent residence status.

We’re a same sex couple. After presenting our case to different skeptical attorneys, we found Eric Price. In our first consultation, we instantly liked him and knew to trust him. 6 months later, my spouse is a legal US resident.
