Great Immigration Attorney!
I hired Attorney Urbina to represent me in an immigration matter. Other attorneys had told me that there was no hope for my case. He reviewed my situation with a lot of care and empathy. He explained me my options in detail. He was honest and knowledgeable. He kept me very well informed through the case. I am very happy to report that I have my work permit and I am working!
Best attorney in Georgia!
Attorney Michael Urbina represented me when I received a traffic ticket. I was very scared because it was the first time I had received a ticket in my life. Even though I did not need a lawyer for this situation I decided to hire him because I had never been in court before. He explained all the process and prepared me for everything that was going to happen. He is very knowledgeable and dedicated to his practice which made me feel better going to court. At court, he handled my case very professionally. He arrived on time to court and reviewed with me all my rights and the options I had before going in front of the judge. He lowered my charges and most importantly the ticket will not count towards my license! He did more than I needed which makes me really happy! He makes sure his clients are satisfied with his work and I am glad I decided to hire him. I strongly recommend him and I truly have not seen a more dedicated and knowledgeable lawyer than him in the entire state of Georgia!
Michael is the lawyer that I was looking for…
During the first meeting, Michael took the time to explain the whole process, step by step and how we should present our claim for U.S. citizenship.
After the first meeting, we agreed to hire Michael’s services to take our immigration case because, before to talk with Michael, we talked to two immigration lawyers and they said our case was not that simple.
We are really happy with the results. We highly recommend Michael.
He is a seasoned professional with the experience you are looking for to take your case.
By the way, we already are citizens of U.S.
Durante la primera reunión de Michael tomó el tiempo para explicarnos todo el proceso, paso a paso y cómo deberiamos presentar nuestro reclamo de la ciudadanía estadounidense.
Después de la primera reunión acordamos contratar los servicios de Michael para tomar nuestro caso de inmigración, ya que, antes de hablar con Michael, hablamos con dos abogados de inmigración y nos dijeron que nuestro caso no era tan simple.
Estamos muy contentos con los resultados. Recomendamos altamente Michael.
