We started working with John about two years ago and he has been extremely helpful the entire time. We hired him to help us with the DACA, Advanced Parole, and Adjustment of Status applications. He always went above and beyond and made us feel comfortable the entire time. We also knew that we could count on him to respond to our calls / emails in a very timely manner.
Our case was a little tricky, due to a DUI, but John masterfully navigated through the uncertainty and throughly explained the process / potential risks before we began. He provided us with a timeline / estimation of costs the day we met him and everything proved to be accurate. The only additional expense was to print and ship the applications.
We also moved across the country, during the Adjustment of Status process, so he lined up a lawyer to attend the interview with us. He did all of this behind the scenes without any additional charges. We would highly recommend him to anyone!

I went to a lot of attorneys in Los Angeles to file paperwork and help me through the immigration process. I wasn't sure about any of them until I met john. He explained to me all the details in a simple way. He was in contact with me through every step in the process. He helped me also with a lot of advice to facilitate every step. On my interview at the embassy it was a piece of cake for me because all the papers were well-stacked and filed even better that what they need. He didn't leave any chance for them to debate or find any mistake. He kept following up with me till admission to the US. The process as a whole took the minimum expected time and completely hassle free.
Thanks John for all this success

I'VE NEVER ACTUALLY HIRED MR. MANELY YET, UPON CONDENSING A LIST OF 100+ IMMIGRATION LAWYERS - MY INITIAL POOL OF CANDIDATES - HE ENDED UP IN MY "FINAL ROUND" OF TOP 5 THAT I'VE DECIDED TO INTERVIEW IN PERSON; AS GOOD LAWYERS TEND TO CHARGE STEEP PRICES FOR THE INITIAL CONSULTATION, AND I WAS ABOUT TO HAVE A COUPLE OF THEM, I'VE TRIED TO PERSUADE EACH LAWYER TO LOWER THE INITIAL FEE; UPON MY EXPLANATION JOHN WAS THE ONLY WHO WAS PREPARED TO DO SO, WITHOUT MUCH HESITATION; I'VE INTERPRETATED THAT AS GOOD MORAL CHARACTER, SO HARD TO COME ACROSS IN THIS MONEY DRIVEN, RUTHLESS CAPITALIST SOCIETY. UNFORTUNATELY I'VE MISSED THE INITIAL APPOINTMENT DUE TO SOME COMPLICATIONS, WHICH WERE EXCLUSIVELY MY FAULT, SO I DID NOT GET A CHANCE TO GET ACQUAINTED WITH JOHN'S ACTUAL EXPERTISE, SO I WILL REFRAIN FROM MAKING ANY COMMENTS ON THOSE; YET AGAIN, AFTER TALKING TO TENS OF LAYERS, JOHN STOOD UP FOR HIS MORAL CHARACTER AND I FEEL OBLIGATED, AS FAVOR TO MY FELLOW CITIZENS, TO SHARE MY OPINION PUBLICALLY. SO 5 STARS FOR A GOOD CHARACTER!
