My family consulted many attorneys before they met Nicole. She has helped people in our family for 10 years +. When it was my turn to find an Attorney I did not hesitate to hire Nicole. She was honest, helpful, she gave me a lot of information. The entire process was very difficult but Nicole and her office were very available and I am very thankful for that.

Ms Nicole Nelson is an excellent immigration attorney who helped me and my three children obtain legal residence and citizenship status in the USA. She has remained helpful to our family in recovering information we lost beyond the time for which she was paid. I am a college professor and I recommend Ms Nicole Nelson very highly.

I endorse this lawyer. Nicole is a fantastic lawyer who has many years of experience helping her clients obtain lawful permanent resident status, work authorization, waivers, and citizenship in the United States. Nicole's ability to speak Spanish is very helpful for her Spanish speaking clients and family members.

Nicole Nelson is an amazing advocate for her clients, and gets results in even the most difficult cases. She is exceedingly smart and fights hard for her clients because she is conscientious and cares about the people who entrust their case to her. I endorse her without reservation.
