Great Lawyer
Octavian was referred to me by a fellow immigrant. It was a positive recommendation and i was in ice detention at the time. I was afraid, knew few people in Seattle, just moved in and i was terrified. From the get go, i felt encouraged. I scrambled to secure a down payment and we hit the ground running. I am now several months removed from my final hearing. I'm able to work and provide for myself. I've come a long way from feeling hopeless to now relatively thriving and on a stable footing immigration wise. Octavian and his assistants/paralegals are thorough, communicative, punctual and professional. I can assure you that ALL options will be pursued. I found him to be reasonable, the services affordable( i think it's an hourly rate currently but at the time i was able to pay a down payment and then the rest on a agreed upon monthly installments that were affordable to me) He never once pressured me, was understanding about my situation and really did look at EVERY angle that we could use to get the desired outcome. Final hearing day came, i was nervous but prepared and in the end the result was favorable. I would recommend his services to anyone. He knows what he's doing and will go to bat for you.

Excellent Lawyer
Having hired Mr Octavian and with my process still on, I highly have recommended him to other immigrants facing challenges in getting the best lawyer to handle their immigration matters to the latter. I not only have experienced his professionalism but found him a straight forward lawyer who will get you fully informed on matters regarding your case, not leaving any pages unturned, and, ensures you get to understand every info before hiring him. This made my trust in him strong, and, he has not disappointed me to this far. Every step is moving smoothly and correctly. I would highly not hesitate recommending him for any immigration issues.

Perfect Service and Result
I cannot say enough good things about Octavian at Westlake Law. We hired him to help with my immigration visa and made the whole process transparent and much less stressful. He is very fast to respond to questions, kind and professional, and a very fair price (half the cost of other much less helpful firms). I cannot think of any way the experience could have been better. Highly Recommended.

Choose Him!!
I recently consulted with Octavian Jumanca with Westlake Law about some concerns I had about a divorce that had immigration implications. I had talked to several other attorneys prior to my consultation with Octavian and wanted to share my observations. Compared to the multitude of other attorneys, Octavian was by far and away the most knowledgeable about divorce with immigration implications, patient, and pleasant to talk to. He provided concise and easy to understand answers to our concerns in a calming manner. If you are seeking help, I would strongly recommend using Octavian Jumanca to anyone that needs legal counsel.

Helped us get my husband's Green Card!
Octavian helped prepare and guide us through the daunting Green Card application process. He prepared all forms & compiled additional information we provided to make a good case in approving my husband for a Green Card. My husband had some questionable moments in his history of entering the US on an overstayed visa, as well as a false criminal charge against him that was ultimately cleared from his record, but Octavian was optimistic he still had a good chance of being approved for his Green Card. After waiting 15 months after turning in the Green Card application and packet, we were finally notified to report to DHS for the interview. When we met with Octavian to prepare for the interview, he had us provide further information that he assembled into a separate packet, which included recent pictures of us and our family, and recent tax info, joint financial documents, etc.as well as the sealed I693 med exam. He spent some time conducting mock interview questions with my husband and me separately to prepare us for the interview. My husband and I work full time, so we appreciate that Octavian was able to meet with us on a few different Sundays during this entire process, and even dealt with us bringing our baby, now toddler daughter to the office. He accompanied us to the interview and even provided a Spanish translator for my husband if he needed additional interpretation during the interview. All the hard work paid off, our interview went well, and I have to give credit to Octavian for compiling the packet of recent info as this included new pictures of my husband, daughter, me, and our family. The immigration officer reacted very well to our pictures which created a good connection to us, and we are thrilled that my husband got his Green Card in a little over one week after the interview! We highly recommend Octavian to anyone needing immigration legal help!

The best immigration attorney in Seattle
Octavian is by far the best immigration attorney I've met, I got detained by ICE on April of 2018, my family contacted him and he visited me the same day and explained with detail my options, to be honest, I thought I had no chance, but I was wrong, he prepared all the documentation we needed and 45 days later I got released, not only that, I now have a work permit and the future looks bright and all thanks to Octavian, he is the best in the west! highly recommended!

Professional and Efficient!
Mr. Jumanca did an excellent job helping me to clear my criminal background and he functioned as a notary. He was very professional and efficient. During the entire process he was a calming force and always clearly explained what he was doing and when we could expect results.

Helped with response to Immigration paper work.
I can't say enough about the service i got from Octavian at WestLake Law. At a moment when we needed quick turn around and fast action on our Immigration case, he delivered within days of our first communication. Octavian was easy to talk and reassuring. I wish i had come to know about him and his legal team when i first started the Immigration paper work process. All in all, am happy with what he put together for me and my family and i know i picked a winning team!

Knows his information.
He was a good lawyer to work with he really knew all his information and knowledgeable. He had knowledge of substantive law and legal procedure which he put into work. He was a really hard worker and persistent in his work very detail oriented and making sure to review all his information making sure I knew what I needed to know to be prepared. He used analytical and logical reasoning to make sure my story was heard and stood out to the point that people understood my situation. He was good with his responsiveness and communication skills. He was very supportive and always willing to help and worked around my schedule.
