Our Happy Clients

  • Michael has filed my O-1 undefined P-1 visas for the last 5 years. He is great to work with, and early on took the time to put together a long term strategy for moving to the USA. He understands the life of a musician -- and works with me and my hectic schedule. I highly recommend him to anyone needing an Immigration Attorney.

  • Michael filed my Green Card (permanent residency) and assisted with the removal of conditions on my J-1 Visa. He explained the process, and was extremely helpful. His help was invaluable and we couldn't have done it without him!

    Celi Sweden
  • 5 stars, would give more if possible! Michael went above and beyond for my successful O1 petition. Even though we were met with some very frustrating moments along the way, he was always there to make sure everything ran smoothly. His personal stories, positive outlook and complete confidence in my case, made me feel at ease. If you are looking for an attorney who goes the extra mile, I can't recommend Michael and his team higher.

  • The staff are courteous, helpful, and always quick to reply and engage me in the process. Never once did I feel like a number or another task to fulfill. I felt like a person-which is more than I could say for the US immigration system itself.As a result, I have referred many people to First Class Immigration and I have never received a negative comment about their services and professional attitude.

He secured my non-immigrant visa (R-1), then my Permanent residency, and earlier this year he successful filed my Citizenship/Naturalization application. I trust nobody else!!
