So Grateful
After a little over 2 years… I finally got my citizenship! Thanks to the help of Atty. Kelly and Victor! I had other case managers as well but Victor saw my case through til the very end. With any of your immigration needs, don’t think twice about coming here. They are very reasonable with price and will work with you all through out the process. I had some issues that needed to be straightened out first before I was able to get my citizenship and they helped me take care of all that. I wouldn’t have known that I needed to do that and probably would have gotten denied if I didn’t come her. Atty. Kelly also used to be an immigration officer so he is very well versed. I am so happy to have been recommended this place by other family members. You wont regret it!

Truly the B E S T lawyers office in California
I had a very complex case that no lawyer could actually handle or wanted to deal with It’s was stressful nerve racking time for me I shopped around to find experience immigration lawyer to look over my case and see if there is a chance for me to Rebuttal or loop holes to win my case After 10 years of of researching and “to much for us “ from bunch of claim to be “ experience lawyers“ I got to Kelli office I paid for consultation and got all the answers I needed to see where I’m standing, They didn’t sugarcoated ,they were honest & straightforward (which is what I needed) They told me all possibilities pros & cons … I decided to give it a chance and trust them We signed a contract and they start working on my case They communicated with me the whole process (Which took only 3 month ) I just got a call this morning from the office saying “you case was approved, we won the case “ I couldn’t believe it was that fast or even a chance to get approved (10 years process for me with 4 different lawyers from 2 states ) I cant be happier I got my life back How can I thank enough for this office to be so amazing and professional Kelly Angie Andrea my #1 Thank you sooooooo much God bless you and all the hard working you guys do ❤️

Great Team
I petition for my wife late 2021 we just got approved this month. The approval was sooner than expected (6-8) months. Kelly and his team Alma, Angie, Stephanie and the rest of the office did a exceptional great job preparing my wife and I for the interview from day 1 until the day of the interview. They guide it us through it all and help answered and clarify any questions and concerns we had that we were not sure of. At the end every single penny paid off. My wife and I are very thankful and happy! We definitely recommend Wilner and O’Reilly they will take of you and come thru!

Honesty and Excellence!
Kelly is amazing! He is knowledgeable, honest, funny but more importantly, highly experienced in immigration law. He was formerly a USCIS officer and that has proven to be a priceless asset. My journey to citizenship would have been a highly stressful process but Kelly made it easy. He will be there to hold your hand all the way as he did for me. The lawyers and staff at this law office are not in it for the money, they actually care! With their help I'm now a US citizen and I'll be forever thankful!

Immigration Case
Kelly and Juan helped my case with the immigration court. I visited multiple attorneys before coming to see Kelly but they only cares about money. Kelly took my case and gave me a very good customer service.

A Law Firm With A Good Heart
Atty. Kelly, Ms. Alma and Atty. Talia did much more than what I expected. From consultation, Atty. Kelly was very accommodating. He answered all my questions clearly and explained the process step by step. Words are not enough to express my deepest and most sincere appreciation to Atty. Kelly's team especially to Ms. Alma Urcid who stayed with me every step of the way making sure everything's going well. She is just remarkable. Atty. Talia was very kind, very professional and just wonderful. If I am to describe how I felt as their client, it was like being in a warm embrace from all of them assuring me that everything will be ok. They did all they can and more to ensure that I can travel and be with my father and hold his hands during his treatments and until the end when he lost his battle to cancer. I've consulted and hired other good lawyers in the past none compared to Atty. Kelly's team. A law firm with a good heart.

Very Thankful for Mr. O'Reilly's Representation
I contacted Mr. O'Reilly early last year to see what he could do for my wife's immigration status. He met with me initially, took his time and explained what the possibilities were, and he took our case. He went to work immediately, we had a case worker, Alma Urcid, who guided us step by step in gathering, organizing, and submitting documents. Mr. O'Reilly came through, he put us at ease with his vast knowledge on the immigration system and his sense of humor. We were able to secure a Permanent Resident status for my wife. We are and forever will be very greatful for Mr. O'Reilly and all of the efforts put forth from Alma Urcid in helping us secure a favorable resolution with our immigration matter. We would recommend the services of Kelly O'Reilly to anybody seeking help in their immigration matter. He is the very best.

HONEST AND VERY PROFESSIONAL
Atty. Kelly O'Reilly helped me in my immigration problem all the way until I get my citizenship. He is a wonderful person and very professional to talk with. He will tell you up front if your case has hope or not. Most of all, to have him work on your immigration problem wont hurt your lifetime savings.

Distinguished Attorney - Industry Expert
Mr. O'Reilly has successfully completed work for many of our clients and other professional colleagues. His unique background, professionalism, experience, and key relationships allow their firm to remain at the top of the immigration industry. We've seen them complete many EB-5 visas, secure green cards, work with wealthy families to create business and investment opportunities that would allow them to live in the USA. While some of their clients are famous athletes, entertainers, and entrepreneurs, they help many family members reunite despite challenging immigration circumstances. Mr. O'Reilly's practice is established and well known as the leading immigration law firm in Southern California and we recommend them without hesitation.
