The Nicest and the Best Immigration Lawyer. Period.
At the time, my english was not the best, and Juan Carlos provided me with support in my native language (Polish) at no additional cost. Juan Carlos was very kind, committed, professional and extremely fast. There was absolutely no time wasted and I got my green card in record time.

The BEST of the best Immigration Lawyers in USA
My US immigration case was very complicated as my then American wife had stopped supporting my immigration efforts while still being married and living together (no arranged marriage here). She even requested (and got) an unsubstantiated order of protection from the family court. I was devastated and went on to spend thousands of dollars with different lawyers for about three years. To no avail. My wife even tried to deport me. When I was almost ready to give up I met Juan Carlos Monteza! He immediately took my case and turned everything around for me. I was able to sponsor myself and it has been 12 years since I got my green card and 9 years since I got my citizenship. Juan Carlos singlehandedly changed my life for the better!!! Thank you Juan Carlos!!! God Bless you and I hope you have a successful and productive life similar to the one your dedication allowed my to have.
