5.0 stars 20 totalReview Matthew Holt

If I could give Matt and infinite amount of stars I would. I only know him in a professional capacity. He was able to help our case and he and his team worked tirelessly. We had gone to four or five other lawyers that basically said we didn't have a chance, couldn't do anything about the case, or they would "try" but didn't appear confident anything could be done. I was planning to have to move to Tijuana until we found Matt. The case didn't appear complicated on the surface, but so many things came up during the way, but Matt and his team were able to handle it and look for alternatives for how they could help us. He is very personable and honest. Very up front with what the reality is for your case. The cost for his excellent services is also reasonable and worth it. Now I refer everyone I know that needs immigration services to his office.

Matt was a great guide through our adjustment of status journey. His character is a combination of excellent domain expertise, honesty, and an awesome personality. The latter was really important for us, since our journey was a very personal one and we needed someone who would make us feel comfortable. On top of that his services were charged at a very reasonable price. I highly recommend Matt as an immigration attorney.

First of all I have no affiliation with Matt outside of my relationship with him as his client. The first time we met was in in a client/attorney capacity and since then have had only professional correspondence So forget the idea that this is some artificial review by someone associated with Matt to pump up his online reputation. Matt is the first lawyer I have ever hired. Like many, I was a little jaded by the stereotypes/jokes about dishonest lawyers and was almost expecting a negative experience. In our initial meeting (for which he charged me $0.00) he basically tried to talk me into pursuing a method to immigrate my fiance into the US that didn't even require legal services (basically attempting to pursue a work visa). And he was totally sincere about that (not just trying to win my trust) to the extent of talking with my fiance (in ANOTHER free consultation) to determine the feasibility of this approach. After speaking with my fiance, Matt and I jointly determined that such an approach was probably not workable (since her education/experience did not qualify). After contracting his services for a fiance visa, various circumstances arose in my life that brought the fiance visa approach into question (due in no part to his services which were executed flawlessly). I contacted him thinking (since the redirection was 100% my responsibility) that the legal fees that I had already paid him gone. To my surprise he indicated that I could potentially get a significant portion back. Then I was like, this guy is amazing. If that wasn't enough, my circumstances remained uncertain for months during which time I remained out of contact with him (since I was still in the process of working out my position and unfortunately could not provide him any clear direction). If you can believe it, MATT CONTACTED ME to determine how he could potentially reimburse ME! If you need an immigration attorney you absolutely can do no better than Matt.

For everyone who knows Matt, you know how personal and profesional he is, his level of expertise is that of an attorney with three times the lenght of his career. After 20 years of paying lawyers tell me something I didn't want to hear, I connected with Matt thru one of his coleagues; my situation was at a boiling point, on the verge of deportation, and Matt came to the rescue, on a weekend, he devoted time to me instead of his family, he guided me thru the process, gave me reassurance, and now, thanks to him, today I am in the best position that I have never been in 20 years.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Matt!, this client of yours is forever greatful, there are hurdles ahead, but I believe you will help me come thru.
I recommend Matt Holt 100 %, be sure that if you hire him, you are getting the best of the best!, again, thank you!.

Matthew is not all about the money. You can trust him fully with your case. Matt helped me with my DACA and residency. He is a great lawyer and person. He always kept me updated on my case. Matt is very passionate about his career and helping people. I would recommend him 100%. Other lawyer over charge and try to make you do things the wrong way.
Thank you Matt for everything.

After years of searching for the right immigration lawyer we finally found Matthew Holt. Other lawyer only gave us the option of having my wife deported to Mexico because she entering illegally. Due to being an active duty member we field for a parole in place to prevent my wife from being deported and within a little over a year my wife had her green card. Our process was smooth, we were kept up to date and we always had confidence in Matthew. We feel fortunate and appreciative to have had Matthew Holt as our attorney throughout this ordeal. Thank you Mathew Holt.

My wife had entered the country illegally, my fault mostly. I am always prescreened and sent directly through the screening process. We didn't intend to stay in the U S, but the birth of our son changed all of that. My tax papers were a mess, we had no formal sponsor. Mathew Holt pulled angels from the heavens and helped it all become a reality. He didn't give us a crazy price fee, as many Immigration Lawyers did, knowing our situation. He is a saint, and family now, in our eyes. I would recommend this lawyer, mostly because, I trusted him with my family and our future, and he came through as a total answer from the heavens, without breaking the bank! Thank you Mathew Holt, we will always consider you a special part of our family, it's history, and of course, it's success!

As soon as my husband and I met with Matt we knew he would be our choice for immigration lawyer. Matt did not dissapoint, he went above and beyond to resolve my immigration status in the best way possible. Matt and his staff always treated us with care, we're very professional and responsible. My immigration process was smooth and I always had the confidence that I had a superb attorney on my side. We are very grateful to Matt for all his knowledge, experience, time, professionalism, attention, and specially the care he showed us as his clients. Thanks again Matt!

We selected Matt to represent a young woman very dear to us. Since we were entrusted in making such a critical decision for another person, we were burdened by a sense of grave responsibility and uncertainty. Over the ensuing three-year period that uncertainty would evolve into deep trust, respect, and relief that we had chosen the right person.
At our first meeting, we were impressed by Matt’s ability to listen and empathize. His familiarity with the broader cultural history and understanding of issues of what we were relating illustrated that his commitment to his clients went far deeper than just the laws involved. He clearly outlined how the law related to this young woman’s situation, and what lay ahead in undertaking this journey. From the onset, Matt made himself available whether to answer questions or just offer reassurance to help ease our angst.
Her particular case was made more difficult by nature of the associated psychological trauma involved and Matt clearly and compassionately understood. This made getting an accurate, consistent testimony particularly difficult and surely frustrating for him. Not once did he exhibit emotion or anxiety even when this client-caused hindrance complicated court proceedings. Matt’s calm, patient, professional demeanor allowed his client to remain composed and focused on her testimony rather than the reactions of others. It was precisely what this anxious situation required.
Another of Matt’s exemplary qualities that weighed heavily in building our trust and respect was his impeccable integrity. His insistence on being truthful and as correct as possible not only increased our confidence in his judgment and advice, but also reassured us that we had selected a very honorable person as our attorney.
We feel extremely fortunate and appreciative to have had Matt as our confidant, guide, and attorney throughout this ordeal. We will always be indebted to him for his professionalism, expertise, friendship, and successful assistance.

My partner and I went through the Asylum Process with him. We had called around before finding Matt, and Matt was the only one willing to sit down with us (for Free) for 30minutes to listen to our case. He was understanding and compassionate. You can tell sitting with him that he is immensely passionate in what he does for a living. He was excited to take our case and he easily calmed our nerves and helped us take a dream and make it in reality. We will forever be thankful for him! He changed our lives.
