I've Mr. Crabtree as my attorney for Asylum application a year ago. Before hiring him...
I've hired some big-name, expensive but total ripped-off, well-known immigration attorney in San Francisco City, but the disappointments and the lack of communications with their clients, especially like most of us, the non U.S. citizen like me, a secure status, and keeping us inform with the progress of any kind of applications is rather important.
After a big mess of the previous law-firm, I've found Mr. Crabtree thru a mutual friend. Not only a genuine smart with lots of knowledge, with his smart preparations for your cases, he is also a friendly, easy-to talk kinda guy.
Less than 2 months (instead of having my court-date postpone to nine months or more later), I've successfully had my Asylum application granted, also glad that I have known a great person, a responsive, straightforward, and trustworthy friend.
You've gotta try, you will only know. As for me, I've had enough of those cocky, big names with bad attitudes lawyers but does not do you any good....
Give Kevin a call, and at least have a talk with their law firm. Again, never try, never know.
