Great lawyer !
I would first like to start off by thanking lawyer Pineda for everything he did for my mom. After several consultations with what are supposed to be the best law firms in California, we had lost all hope of ever getting a green card for my mom. After a consultation with lawyer Pineda he assured my mom she will have a green card and we decided to take the risk and boy are we grateful we did. Two weeks after my 21st birthday we sent out all her paperwork and within TWO MONTHS for sending them I can now say my mom is a permanent resident of the USA. We will forever be grateful for all his hard work and dedication. We are also very grateful to his staff for always being so supportive, generous, and patient. Any doubt any question we ever had they were always so quick to get back to us. Once again thank you ! I would 100x recommend.

Dreams Realized
I am proud to offer this review as a testament to Mr. Pineda’s incredible work. He has a “joie de vivre” for immigration law that so few people seem to possess. Mr. Pineda and his team offer absolute excellence. I truly admire his dedication, transparency, and knowledge of the law. I have known Mr. Pineda for 16 years, and in the time I have known him, he has helped my mom become a citizen even though the odds seemed insurmountable. He navigated me through the deferred action program, and thanks to him I am now a legal permanent resident. If it were not for all of his work, I do not believe I would have accomplished all the things that I have. By helping me navigate the immigration process, I was able to get work, go to school, and graduate college. I am happy to see my dreams realized. It is therefore without any reservations that I recommend Javier G. Pineda as an attorney to anyone seeking counsel on immigration matters and services. He has left an indelible mark on me and my family.
