    Just want to share my experience with Christine Contreras I met her through a friend’s recommendation and I am so glad that I accomplished I got married in January 2023 so my husband and I decided to start the process of a petition alien to USCIS and we decided to contact her for a consultation. She gave us all the information we needed to start the process as soon as we collected all the documents she requested we met her a couple of times before she sent my application to tell us how the process would be and how long time approximately the process would take. She is a professional in her job and she really knows what to accomplish according to her expertise, after she sent my application I received my SS and Work Visa after 3 months at the beginning she told us that the whole process would take around 17 months Surprisingly I received the notice for my interview after 10 months and fortunately, everything went well and my case was approved! Thanks to Christine and her law group for all the support in this process! Highly recommend!

    Christine is literally the best of the best. Not only is she an expert, but kind, understanding and she guided me and Omar through his residency with ease. It can be an intimidating process, but with Christine, it is easy and she helped eliminate the anxiety and guided us through the process. Omar got his conditions removed from his residency card this month and is elated. If I could give 10 stars I would!

    Estoy muy agradecida con los servicios de Law Office of Christine Contreras Especialmente con la Abogada Christine por su profesionalismo y responsabilidad con todo lo que hace! Yo ya había consultado a otras oficinas y a diferentes abogados e incluso me habían dicho que no iba a poder hacer ningún ajuste migratorio en mi situación porque necesitaba probar que había ingresado al país legalmente y no me habían sellado mi pasaporte y tampoco tenia mi forma I-94 así que ya había perdido la esperanza mas sin embargo conocí a Christine y ella me dio muchas esperanzas porque me dijo que ella me ayudaría a ajustar mi estatus migratorio y así fue! Su profesionalismo y responsabilidad además de los conocimientos de la ley de emigración que ella tiene me ayudaron bastante porque gracias a eso todo el proceso fue muy rápido recibí mi permiso de trabajo y mi seguro social muy rápido, estaba sorprendida con los resultados pero más me sorprendió fue que después de 3 meses de haber iniciado mis trámites con ella recibí mi tarjeta de residencia! Así que estoy muy agradecida con sus servicios y completamente recomiendo sus servicios! Muchas Gracias Christine y a su grupo de colaboradores!

    I have DACA and with Christine I was able to obtain my advance parole. Christine is very professional and knowledgeable. I was confident from day one. I traveled to Mexico City and was able to visit my grandpa who’s very ill. I recommend Christine to any DACA recipient who’s thinking about obtaining their advance parole and any additional immigration needs you may have.
