Honest and knowledgeable Attorney
I consulted with Mr. Sterger regarding my friend (an American citizen) who is currently married to a French citizen and living in France. Her husband, adopted away from his homeland of Columbia, has had trouble being admitted into the US, and they were seeking help with this. He gathered the information that I had, and provided me with excellent information to share with them to initiate the process. He then scheduled a Skype appointment with them so that he could consult with them personally. We all feel very confident and comfortable with the advice and direction we have received from Mr. Sterger. We feel that this situation has been handled well, and we look forward to resolution.
