I have retained Mr. Montag 15 years ago, in 2001, He has helped sucessfully with a difficult green card issues for my brother and his immigrated fiancee. I can testify that those recent comments were how I felt about Mr. Montage 15 years ago.
A conscientious attorney that would never take advantage of his desperate and in-needs Clients.
I looked up Mr. Montag 15 Years later to refer to a friend ,
and very happy to read all of his positive recent reviews
and could not agree more, prompting me to write this comment.

Jonathan helped me and my family with five immigration cases. I came to the U.S. in 2001. After five years later, I applied for citizenship in 2006, but FBI and the Department of Homeland Security held my file for 1.5 years for no reason. I went to the immigration office many times and asked about the process, but every time they just told me "FBI pending." I started looking for a lawyer to solve the problem. I contacted several lawyers, but they all asked for $7k or more. Eventually I found Jonathan, and he only charged me $1200. Jonathan sued U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), FBI and Homeland Security. The court date was about one month from the date he sued. Immigration settled with Jonathan and gave me a citizenship less than three weeks, and we dropped the case.
Next, Jonathan helped my sister and her family to get U.S. residency. He did all the paperwork, and everything went smooth and fast. Finally, my wife recently got his help to change her immigration status. It took only about three months from the date we applied to get her residency.
We all appreciate him so much for his honest and efficient work for such reasonable fees.
