Monica rottermann convince me not to deport myself when I was on hold with I.C.E when 8 other lawyers had told me I had no case she didn't give up on me. I got out on bail with in a month and for that I thank her for talking me out of a deportation and giving me a chance to still be here with my son and family. I highly recommend Monica rottermann

Imagination is a scary proces, not all cases are the same. One thing they are the same is that we are fighting to stay, and although there is no sure way . She help me thru it with her honesty, and kindness. I talked to manny lawyers and my case is not that simple. Most lawyers did not want to even try. The ones that did acted like money was more important. I was shocked to find her. I know I have a long road ahead of me but I fell hopefull with her leading my fight . When looking for a lawyer I would highly suggest you look into Monica e rottermann. This is our life don't rush into picking the cheapest or the one that's just going to tell you what you want to hear, if it was as simple as papers getting mailed in them we would not be looking into a lawyer. I been here in the states 29 years this is my home my kids are here. I would not trust anyone else with my case
