Very professional. I am a well-known author on a variety of topics from animal chiropractic to comedic. I am writing this review to endorse the services of Robert Perkins, popularly known as “The Immigration Professor.” For the over the 30 years I’ve known him, Mr. Perkins has been my go-to person on issues related to immigration that have come up in my personal and professional life. He is knowledgeable, caring and compassionate and has served his clients in the Chicago area – and now in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Nationwide – with success and distinction. I highly recommend him to anyone needing help and advice in this area.
