Best Lawyer in San Diego!

I opened 2 restaurants since I’m in US and when my business partner need to request the E2 Business visa Mark had great results; in only 2 months my partner Alessandro got the Visa! What can I say … Mark is a man of his word and a great professional with great knowledge of the immigration laws. Of course after all these years and many cases he became family to me and all my family. I really recommend Mark and his great experience!


E2 Visa

Great Lawyer!

I hired Mark for my employment based green card application. He guided me through the process and it felt very smooth, gave me guidelines for recommendation letters, which documents I need to gather, etc. He prepared an excellent cover letter and submitted all the necessary forms. And we had long conversations over the phone about how the interview would be. I am very happy to have worked with him and I highly recommend him.


Green Card

My NIW Case

Mark was my lawyer from mid 2015 to mid 2017 representing me for my EB2 NIW case with USCIS. He was very helpful in composing my personal EB2 letter and the templates for the recommendation letters, as well as with all the other documents with every step and was always available for questions. My case eventually did get approved and I found Mark’s work overall very diligent and helpful. I myself recommended Mark for two of my colleagues for NIW cases.
