Very thorough, responsive and knowledgeable family attorney
Ms. Padilla was wonderful to work with. Not only was she knowledgeable, thorough, and professional. She was also very caring and had great bedside manners while assisting me with reviewing a prenuptial agreement. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an experienced attorney who makes you feel like more than just another client. It was also a plus that she's 100% bilingual, since some of my documents were Spanish.

A Competent & Trustworthy Lawyer!
Annaluisa was welcoming, informative and knowledgeable about my case, which was very unique as I had already visited at least 3 other attorneys. She was very helpful during the whole process and was open to provide information at any time. She was always on time and present when we needed her the most. I highly recommend her.

Knowledgeable immigration attorney
It's an honor to recommend the services of my lawyer (Ms. Padilla) to anybody else. She is professional, punctual and friendly at all times. Her staff is also kind. She always took the time to return my calls and explain what was going on with my immigration case. I was so satisfied with her services that I asked her to represent me again a few years later during my citizenship process. She was there for me not only during the interview, but also, before the appointment and she even helped me study for the citizenship test. She goes beyond the extra mile!

Annaluisa is the by far the best immigration attorney you can have
We met Annaluisa at a latino community event a few years ago. After being disappointed by the lack of professionalism of our previous "attorney", Annaluisa was a total blessing. She provided us with the appropriate counseling that we needed. She was always patient and supportive and helped us understand how my immigration process worked. My husband and I went through my residency process with her and we were so happy with her service that decided to hire her again to do my citizenship process less stressful. She again did a great job and for sure went beyond her call of duty. My husband and I will always be thankful to her, for helping us accomplish our immigration dream so we could be together.

Annaluisa Padilla - recommended A+
Annaluisa was my 2nd divorce attorney. She was always extremely professional, compassionate, and very knowledgable in family law. Hope I don't need another attorney, but if I do, I know to call Annaluisa. Annaluisa, I appreciate your help through this painful and difficult time.

Superb Professionalism from a Top Quality Person
I can not say enough about the service that Miss Padilla provides. Along with her well trained staff I felt assured and was able to rest peacefully knowing that my divorce proceedings were well attended to. Her strong work ethic was apparent in the courtroom through her concise and thoroughly researched arguments. Her ability to hear my concerns and respond with caring guidance is something that every attorney practicing family law should take as a model for their own practice. I feel privileged to have been represented by Miss Padilla and I would not recommend anyone more highly.
