No one will help you more, trust me!
First and foremost, I want to thank God. Without Him nothing is possible. Now, I would like to give a wholeheartedly thank you to Attorney Noreen L. Barcena, Ms. Alma Gabriela Bosch, Ms. Michell Chavez and the entire staff for all their hard work. I became a citizen in less than half a year! Stop searching for an attorney, Ms. Barcena is the one for you. Seriously! I have met several attorneys during my profession and no one is more empathetic to their clients than she is. She will counsel you every step of the way. Ms. Bosch called me to congratulate me and was so happy for me when they received the good news. They truly care for you. God bless them all!

Great immigration lawyer / Fantástica agobada de inmigración
Noreen was my lawyer for my immigration process and I just obtained my citizenship. All the interviews were excellent and smooth and we didn't find any problems along the way. She helped me fill out the applications and gather all the necessary documents. I am so happy with the results!! Noreen es mi abogada de inmigración y acabo de obtener mi ciudadanía. Todas las entrevistas fueron muy agradables y fáciles y no encontramos ningún problema en el proceso. Ella me ayudo a completar todas las aplicaciones y a presentar toda la documentación necesaria. Estoy muy contento con los resultados!! Y también habla español :-)

Client satisfaction
Noreen is an excellent attorney, very knowledgeable, passionate, hard-working, aggressive, always communicates regarding the progress of the case... She puts client's interests before anything else. She has done an amazing job for me in a hopeless situation where no lawyer wanted my case. I am very grateful to her and will recommend her to all my friends and family!
