Gustavo truly made my wife's green card application process easier than it could have been. You can tell he genuinely cared about our case. He was always professional and provided clear legal advice that we understood. His estimated timeline was spot on. You can tell he's done this countless times and his confidence was key in keeping us at ease through to the end. Thank you Gustavo and team!

Got it done.
The amount of thanks I have to Cueva. We started my husband's visa paperwork with a different lawyer in 2018. And in 2022 we had to find a new lawyer aftet the old one could not longer help us and we tried to finish the porsses our selfs.Cueva took our case and ran. He got things fixed that the previous lawyer messed up and also gave us information that the old one did not tell us about. With in a few months he had everything fix and and the ball rolling for my husband. With in 2 years my husband had his visa. Payment plan with him was easy and affordable. We can't be more grateful for all the work he did even while my husband was in Mexico for his interview, Cueva was right there and any moment to help with everything.

Exceptional lawyer!
Exceptional lawyer! I am very happy that we chose Mr. Gustavo Cueva to help us with my immigration case. He exceeded any expectations me and my husband might have had. Mr. Cueva kept us fully informed all through the application process and communication was always fast and easy. Any questions or concerns we had, he was able to answer with the most knowledgeable way. We never had to be worried about anything and that is so important when you’re moving your family to another side of the world… Even our friend decided to switch to Mr. Cueva after hardships in their process with a former lawyer. Also, my case was approved in a record setting time. Tacoma is truly lucky to have an immigration lawyer like him. Thank you so much! Kiitos paljon!

GREAT LAWYER
Excellent Lawyer Hiring Gustavo to handle my Adjustment of Status was an excellent decision my husband and I did. Gustavo was a very responsible, attentive, reliable person and knew exactly what he was doing. During my process he was always very clear and transparent with all the steps to follow, the process took exactly what he told us at the beginning it would take, we always had very good communication and I personally felt very comfortable with his services. He speaks perfect English and Spanish and you can see the great work experience he has. I would definitely hire him again in the future! We can’t wait to keep working him and his team! Gracias Gustavo!

Passionate expert in immigration law, genuine, and result oriented.
My wife and I came to Gustavo for immigration services in 2023 after we got married. We were on a tight timeline but, the end result was successful and we received her greencard today. Meeting him immediately we felt we were in the right hands: he is very personable, his office was inviting, staff was polite (phone) and helpful, and it felt organized. Gustavo's experience shone through immediately. He provided answers for many of the questions we had and if he didn't have an answer, he would research it and get back to us. He is prompt in responding to queries via email, text, or calls and always on top of things. Updates on progress are prompt and best interest such as "be on the lookout for..."; he will keep you informed. I think most importantly though, Gustavo is passionate about his client's stories and success. While an expert in his area of law, is important, his passion amplifies his expertise he wants to understand his client's goals, dreams, stories, and personal experiences and make their reality to become US permanent residents a reality. He cares about the outcomes not just for residency, but also for keep those people who are newly married, or even long-term partners, together not just emotionally by bridging the gap so love can be in close proximity. If you are seeking excellent legal counsel for immigration law, your first stop should be Gustavo Cueva at Cueva Law Office in the Proctor Neighborhood of Tacoma, Washington. Thank you, Gustavo, from both of us.

USA Green Card
Gustavo nos ayudó con el proceso de inmigración y finalmente obtuvimos nuestra USA Residencia !Nos acompañó durante todo el proceso y respondió todas y cada una de las preguntas e inquietudes que teníamos. Siempre fue receptivo y se aseguró de mantenernos informados sobre nuestro caso. Él es extremadamente confiable y siempre nos mantuvo informados de cualquier cambio o actualización del proceso en el que se encontraba nuestro caso con USCIS. Durante todo el proceso Gustavo se mantuvo en contacto brindando actualizaciones sobre cualquier cambio o actualización que fuera necesario realizar. Cuando teníamos alguna pregunta o inquietud, nos respondía sin importar la hora del día, respondiendo nuestras llamadas, mensajes de texto o correos electrónicos.Altamente recomendado! es un abogado que se preocupa por sus clientes

Received my Greencard in 3 months !
Hired Gustavo Cueva and was the best decision! I was trapped in bad bad situation as I first hired a bad Lawyer, who told me I could never get my status fixed, he wasted 4 years waiting with not even my NVC paperwork done, after 4 years of waiting he just told me he could not do anything for me and left me with my case. I was sad, confused and hopeless, but I found Gustavo who helped me filed my legal entry in the US and then soon after get my greencard within : months; process was so smooth, replay to every question I had and even when I was entering the border was there for me! Which my previous attorney would never do for me. Honestly, Gustavo fixed my hopes and my whole life.
