Not really sure where to exactly start, but let me try with the fact that this firm is absolutely outstanding!!! As an immigrant and after living in the US for over 30+ years I was faced with deportation. With 3 kids and a wife as US citizens my situation was horrifying. Prior to meeting Mr Shanfield and his team I did a significant amount of research on immigration law firms and they came up really strong. I will admit that naturally I am apprehensive of any law firm as there are many horror stories out there that lead you into paying thousands of dollars in the end delivering much less of the outcome they promise you. Daniel never once promised me any results, however did walk me play by play through each step and the various options we had. In the end would give me his advise, but ultimately left it up to me to make the final decision. All tough that approach may not be as comforting to some people, for me personally it was exactly what I needed/wanted. His advise was based on his experience on previous cases, which was all of the comfort I needed. I also appreciated that I wasn't being promised any type of outcome other than "I am confident if we went with x approach that we would be in a good position". He personally assisted me at each DHS visit and I was not ponded off to a junior attorney, which is what I have seen done at other firms. All in all, Daniel and his team are absolutely THE best and most efficient in the industry! The outcome of their professionalism and expertise resulted in my deportation case being dismissed. Now that is behind me, they are going to assist me in getting US citizenship! My family and I are extremely grateful to Daniel Shanfield and his team Diana Morales Avin, Janette Bustillos, Gabriela Perez-Frias, Merle Kahn and Esmerelda Bustos!!!

After posting my review, Daniel and I got together and worked out our disagreement. He was very fair, and I want to thank him and The Law Offices of Daniel Shanfield Immigration Defense, PC, for the work they put into my case.

Daniel helped me to receive my Green Card, and I'm grateful him for this. Although, he worked for my money, and did his work very poorly. Expect being cheated and ripped off.

This review alone cannot express the gratitude I have for the Law Offices of Daniel Shanfield. My case was assigned to one of his lawyer associate named Atty. Paris Scott. I have been a green card holder for 33 years and waited so long to even think about applying for citizenship. Until mistakes caught up with me and I lost hope in getting my US Citizenship.
Atty. Paris Scott held my hand and hopes with no limitations. Through the process I found so much comfort in working with her in getting me through the process. She is a perfectionist, at times I would get scolded by her but it was a scolding so unconditionally coming from her heart because she would not fail me in getting my US Citizenship. Before my naturalization interview, she made sure requirements needed to prove a good moral character under the law would get what I hoped for. ( I just want to add .....Immigration Officers are good people. Just like anyone of us, they do not judge). Atty Paris Scott got me to that Interview Office and I want to thank the Immigration Officer for trusting and believing in me. Atty. Scott was always there for me, even if she was out watching her daughter's game or picking her up from school. Today is June 23, 2016, I am crying with joy. I got an update from UCSIS that my date, place and time of oath taking has been mailed.As I look at my husband of 33 years sitted on a wheelchair , now I could serve him more in his ill health..
I miss your presence Atty. Scott.

When it comes to the fine line where Criminal Law intersectsImmigration Law, Daniel is one of the best out there.It is my great fortune that i Picked Daniel to work with for my Naturalization case with a prior conviction.A few lawyers asked me to sit tight and not apply for Natz, but when i met Daniel , he was confident that i would be Naturalized from the First meeting . His core Education from UCLA and UC Berkeley sets him apart from the rest and he knows the implication of his actions very well.My file was so well structured that the Immigration Officer at the Interview even said "You have a Great Lawyer" to me . His tenacity and dedication to client satisfaction are ferocious, and his ability to de-construct complicated cases are world-class.His team of Diana and others were there to patiently answer several questions that I had through the process and finally, I am a US Citizen. I would recommend Daniel and his firm to anyone who needs Advice in the Immigration world .

I am a US Citizen and married an immigrant who overstayed his tourist visa. We applied for his Adjustment of Status on our own, but that was not immediately approved because he had returned to his home country and then come back to the US. I was surprised to learn that made him "Inadmissible" and we had to submit an I601 application to waive his inadmissible status. As I researched what that meant, I realized it was not just another hoop to jump through and fee to pay. We had to prove it would be an extreme hardship to me, the US citizen, if my husband were to be deported. I was in a panic and realized we needed legal support for this application. We met with 2 lawyers and decided to go with Dan based on his extensive experience with USCIS, on both sides, and his rave reviews here. Rachel was the attorney in his office who handled the details. She was very thorough about identifying justifications for my hardship and identifying others who could write letters of support for our case. She reviewed my essay, a key element of the application, many times and Dan reviewed the final version before submission. Throughout the process Rachel was extremely responsive. It is a long process. We spent 2-3 months preparing the application and then waited 10 long months for the I601 decision. We first met with Dan and Rachel just over a year ago. This past Saturday my husband received his green card in the mail. :) We are ecstatic and relieved that we can stay together here in the US and realize our dreams of traveling abroad together and both be able to come back home. This likely would not have been possible without the assistance we received from Dan and Rachel, and the team at their office. I highly recommend them regardless of the complexity of the case.

With a very short timeline to respond to a USCIS request for information, Daniel, Rachel and his staff went to work on my behalf. They were thorough, persistent, attentive and eventually successful. Despite the inherent stress of the USCIS response process, they made the process manageable. It was a delight working with this team.
It goes without saying that my first stop for all future immigration concerns and questions will be Mr. Shanfield's office.

Mr. Shanfield and his staff are nothing short of fantastic. My daughter-in-law's case was complex involving the need to have the firm apply for her permanent Green Card as well provide professional services to support her defense in a criminal case that if not defended successfully would have resulted in deportation.
Not only did Mr. Shanfield's firm provide the necessary expertise needed to successfully dismiss her felony case, her Green Card came through without a hitch shortly after that!
These folks know what they are doing and their professional approach to all my concerns gave me the confidence I needed to relax and let them do what I hired them to accomplish! I can recommend this firm highly!
