Immigration Specialist and Advocate
Attorney Camille went above and beyond to help with my mother's immigration case. I am truly happy with the service she provided. Camille worked tediously with her managing legal assitant Teresa to prepare my mom's file, she set time aside to answer any of my mom's questions and concerns, and educated us both about the application process. Camille is outstanding, she truly serves to provide the best legal advocacy for immigrants.

Camille is amazing !
Last year my mother and I hired Camille Cook to help with her immigration case. Ms. Cook is incredibly knowledgeable, honest, friendly, and passionate about the work she does. She, along with her staff, were so welcoming and made my mother and I feel comfortable during the whole process. Our questions were always answered promptly and thoroughly which made us feel reassured that my mother’s case was in good hands. Just last month my mother got her Permanent Resident card and words cannot express how grateful we were for Camille and her team’s help. We have hired her once again for my father’s case because we have no doubt that she is one of the best immigration attorneys. I cannot recommend hiring Camille enough to anyone needing immigration-related help. It’s a decision you will truly not regret!

Camille was wonderful
I had the pleasure of hiring Camille K. Cook as my Immigration Attorney as I applied for Permanent Resident. During what continues to be a difficult time for my family and I, Camille and her team were there every step of the way, from preparation to filing my application to Permanent Resident. Throughout the whole process Camille and her associates showed patience and understanding, were compassionate, curtious and extremely professional with regards to my case. I would highly recommend Camille K. Cook to anyone requiring the legal assistance of a Immigration Lawyer. There are simply no words to express my heartfelt gratitude and appreciation and wish you and your team continued success. On behalf of my family and I, thank you.

A Wonderful experience!
We hired Ms. Cook to handle my wife's green card application and I could not be more happy about the process. She was very knowledgeable about the entire process and held our hand throughout everything to reassure us everything was going to be fine. Everything was handled very smoothly and we were constantly kept up to date about the status of our application and how long things would take and what would happen next. E-mails were returned promptly with extensive and detailed answers and I never felt uncomfortable reaching out to her. Everything went smoothly and exactly as she predicted and the process ended much quicker than we had anticipated. Before the entire process I was very hesitant about choosing an attorney and very nervous because you hear so many horror stories but I'm really glad that I ended up with Camille Cook and it was a great decision.

Camille is great
Camille Cook is a great attorney. She did everything for me to get my green card through the consulate in my country. A few years later she helped me get my citizenship. She has also helped several family members of mine and they have all been very happy with her work. Whenever anybody tells me they have an immigration problem or question, I always recommend Camille Cook because I know that she will treat the person with respect and be honest about what their legal options are. Camille can explain complicated legal matters to people very clearly in English or Spanish. She also has great staff who are very helpful and fully bilingual.
