I needed help finding an address to mail off my I212 form and in just a few quick minutes, Ms. Rodriguez was able to help me out! Thank you so very much!- Mary Sanchez
Without a doubt having Rebekah representing me during my immigration process has been a huge blessing. The level of professionalism, efficiency, and knowledge in the matter exceeded all my expectations. Not only was she able to accommodate me for a consultation on the same day, but worked extremely fast to submit my request to USCIS. From that point on, the communication, the explanation of fees and expenses, and the submission of responses to USCIS were all on point. Not only has Rebekah been able to help me, but also has helped several friends and family members that I have referred her to. I am very thankful with Rebekah and her team, as despite the high complexity of my situation, she was able to transform the nightmare I was living into a very blessing experience.- J. B.
