Vera C. W.

Mr Xavier Gonzales is both a great immigration attorney and an excellent criminal attorney.nnn
Last year I had to hire an attorney to defend my son who was in jail, with criminal charges and risk of deportability. I interviewed three immigration attorneys who had been recommended to me, but Mr. Xavier Gonzales was undoubtedly the best. On the first day we met, he did some quick research online and in a few minutes he got lots of information about my son’s legal situation. Then he explained me his theories, with the confidence of a very experienced professional. I had studied immigration law during an LL.M. course and I was greatly impressed with his solid knowledge.
Another positive point which led me to hire Mr. Xavier Gonzales was his vast experience as a criminal attorney. He not only knows criminal law very well but, what is more important, he understands its implications in immigration law. So, I also hired him as a criminal lawyer, to undo a bad deal my son had made with the prosecution, due to bad advice and ineffective assistance of his previous counsel. Mr. Xavier Gonzales succeeded. And because the legally defective plea was withdrawn, he stopped removal proceedings and my son was released.
Mr. Xavier Gonzales acted fast and objectively, and in about 3 months my son was free again. He is now waiting for his citizenship.
And last but not least, Mr. Xavier Gonzales also has a kind staff and an attentive paralegal, who gives clients information about the case
