I was being deported over criminal charges that were more than 10 years old. My wife is an American citizen and I have a daughter born here. After meeting with several other immigration attorneys, I chose Jonathan. We went back to the criminal court and were able to have the charges dismissed, but the government's attorneys argued there was still a "reason to believe" I was guilty and they fought to have me deported. It took five years in removal proceedings, but I am now a permanent resident.

Jonathan took on my brother's case and successfully helped him obtain a visa. We were looking for an attorney that had experience in both immigration and criminal law, and he was the perfect match. He and Lisa went above and beyond our expectations throughout the process. From the moment we consulted with Jonathan, he provided an honest overview of the case and explained in detail what we should expect and addressed our concerns.
He is trustworthy and very efficient with his time. He made my brother and me part of the team and kept us involved and informed throughout the process. We feel blessed to have had Jonathan represent my brother and are extremely satisfied with his work. I would highly recommend Jonathan and his team for any legal needs.

Jonathan has been a fantastic lawyer for me and my family. He has been helping us for a few years now and has been a pleasure to work with. He is very responsive if you have a quick question and everyone in his office is courteous and professional. Great guy to work with and would highly recommend!

Jonathan Dunten's commitment to the practice and development of immigration law has always struck me as exemplary. I've known Jonathan for over 10 years and during this time I've seen him volunteer his time in order to educate the public and further the interests of the immigrant community. He's perfectly bilingual, he's a straight shooter, and will definitely give clients their money's worth.

I have maintained a close professional relationship with Jonathan Dunten since 2003. He is well known in the field of immigration as an expert in subject matter law, and as having the very highest ethical standards. Any person would be very fortunate to have him as their attorney. He is also a great, and very nice guy!
