    I have known Mr. Gotcher and his firm for many years. For as many years, I have been referring immigration cases to him. I also call whenever one of my cases has an immigration component to it. He is always amazing. As amazing as Mr. Gotcher is as an attorney, he also knows how to keep excellent staff. The majority of his staff has been with him for many years. That results in fantastic service to the client. Any client would be lucky to be represented by this firm.
