Supportive all the way through.
A friend highly recommended Javier G. Pineda to represent my wife and son to lead us through the necessary paperwork for their immigration approvals. From day one until the very end he was always professional, supportive and genuine in representing us.

Mr Pineda, provided me with a very efficient smooth process to an order of removal that he found in my name when requesting Citizenship, he keep me informed and continuosly follow up with the INS , finally he was able to cancel the removal proceedings and allowed me to continue with the Citizenship process. I will definitely refer Mr Pineda to anyone for services, they will not be disappointed. Thank you !!

Mr. Pineda is very professional. He helped my mother and I with the citizenship process. Covered the process and was clear on expectations throughout. Selecting the right attorney for you is especially important with regards to your immigration status and if you expect professionalism, transparency, and communication you are in good hands. Mr. Pineda went above and beyond in helping my family.

Today my family has reunited once again thanks to Attorney Pineda. I'd like to thank you for assisting and guiding us throughout this process. I submitted for my parents, and my father submitted for my sister's residency, and they are all residents now. He explained everything in detail and made sure all our questions were answered, he is very knowledgeable so is his staff. My family and I will be eternally grateful to you. I reccomend him 100%.

Meritorious Lawyer.
Back in 2011 went out in search of a good lawyer. Came across his office and staff, decided to have an interview. After the interview, I became the most motivated immigrant, his approach was so uplifting that I left his office with my head up, extremely convinced that he is the best lawyer around. Highly recommend his counsel.

Best immigration lawyer. Since day one he showed professionalism and experience along with with amazing team. We were able to obtain my moms residency within the estimated time and with the process explain since the beginning. The case was also very affordable in comparison to others that I was not willing to trust just based on their consultation. Thank you Javier and staff for helping us through the process of reuniting our mom with us.
