A good lawyer of child custody issue
The early half year of 2015, I had a chance to work with Cecilia for child custody and parenting issues. I have seen her conduct the negotiation. She is very talented, her services are reasonably priced and gets great results. Beside her negotiating talent, she also possesses a great talent for paper-work. She is well-written in correspondence, and legal motion. A good lawyer is busy, however, she is, also, a compassionate professional. She is easy to talk with, and easy to work with. Along with being a great negotiator, she is a great team worker. Certainly, Cecilia is a great lawyer.

I came to my lawyer, Cecilia Nguyen with desperation for help. My 2 years green card was expired, my ex-husband abandoned me and will not do anything to help me establish my permanent resident status. Fortunately I met Cecilia. She really comforted and make me feel there is still HOPE. She adviced me step by step, gathering as much evidence or witness as much as possible. She always willing to discuss my concerns and give me positive outlooks. She helped me translated all my documents, even took time away from her newborn baby to be with me at my interview. With her assistant on this case, i was able to obtain my permanent green card for 10 years. I felt this is a miracle for me. Thank you for making this miracle come true. I appreciated everything you done Cecilia.
