  • Matthew Duncan Pierce

    Pradeek is truly an outstanding immigration lawyer; particularly in the areas of family-based and non-immigrant visas. There is no one else who I would trust more to handle a visa-related matter than Pradeek. Whenever there is a visa-related question I cannot handle on my own, the first person I call is Pradeek and, without fail, he provides me with an effective solution to my problem. In addition to his encyclopedic knowledge of immigration law, Pradeek is an excellent legal researcher and writer who has tackled some very complex issues in the nexus of criminal and immigration law. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, Pradeek is a compassionate individual who cares a great deal about all of the clients he is representing. I highly endorse this lawyer.
