In 2014, my husband and I wanted to pursue our immigration process, and my best friend immediately referred us to her Immigration Attorney, Marie Higuera. Marie had won her immigration case, and like ours, was a difficult one. My friend was confident that she'd be able to help us as well. When we sat down with Marie for the first time, she told us that her job was not to make tons of money as an attorney, but to "keep families together". We knew right away from her knowledge of the current and quite complex immigration laws, that we were in great hands. Marie guided us through every step of our waiver process. Always available for questions, emails, and our hopes for the possible immigration reform news, Marie always stayed connected to us to let us know where we were at in our process, and what she and her team were doing. During our process, I (as the petitioner for my spouse), had to speak to Marie in depth about some personal business, things that were hard to talk about. Marie cared about my well being during our process, and always made me feel comfortable. The Immigration Process is longer and more stressful than people think. Marie kept us positive about our case, and when we had a concern or question she always had an answer. After months of hard work, we have just received our Approval Notice for our Waiver. We couldn't be more happy and thrilled, but it was due to the hard work, knowledge of the current laws, and Marie's passion for keeping families together that made this a reality for my husband and I. We can't say enough positive things about Marie Higuera. There are so many Immigration Attorneys out there, but hard to find one that you can trust. We can say with 100% confidence that Marie Higuera is an attorney of her word, and an attorney who will work diligently to keep your family together. We're not sure how to do this review without having any feeling behind it. Marie has changed our future, my husband's ability to see his family again, and for us to build our future here in the United States. We are forever thankful for her knowledge of the law, her honest approach with clients, and her care for families who are in fear of being separated.

Marie Higuera has just masterfully guided my very complicated and prolonged immigration case to a successful adjustment of status. My case involved navigating various areas and procedural stages of immigration law, and Marie showed professional prowess and integrity in all aspects of handling my case.
