Client Comments

  • "When I first came to Mr. York, I was overwhelmed by the American immigration process, lost and confused by the complexity of this matter, but he was able to start quickly and move me forward through the paperwork. He was very reassuring and professional in his handling of my case that finalized exactly the way Mr. York told me from the beginning. I had and I will continue to highly recommend him to anybody who needs help in immigration."

  • "I was introduced to Mr. York's office back in 2002 and he was willing and did take on a case that other attorneys were not capable of handling or even figuring out an angle of approach. Mr. York is honest, straight forward, and knows the law. In addition, he's interesting to talk to and an extremely kind individual that you can consider a friend and not just your attorney."

  • "I have hired many professionals for many different services and Mr. York has to be at the top of the list. Not only is he an expert in current immigration law, but he is well versed in changes that have occurred in the last 20 years. I have always found his rates to be fair and reasonable. Some of the cases that I have referred to Mr. York have been difficult ones, and every time he has found several creative ways to find a satisfactory resolution. Through my dealings with Mr. York, I have found him to have the utmost integrity. I recommend him wholeheartedly"
