People say the first impression is the one that is worth the most and it is definitely true.

"I went to Mr. Cella to see if he could help me with my I-130 case. Every lawyer I went to before him told me that my case was hopeless. My husband was engaged to a girl before me and USCIS charged him with marriage fraud. The marriage fraud accusation caused for them to initially deny my case. To be very honest, I had very little hope that we would have an approved I-130 by Decemeber 2015 ( I was...

Honestly, if it wasn't for Mr. Cella, I would probably still be dreaming about my green card. He is truly a phenomenal lawyer that worked better than anyone I have ever worked with. I had two negative experiences with immigration lawyers before (one that was stealing my money!!!) But you can trust Mr. Cella and you can most definitely expect positive results.
