I retained Michael G. Kohler to help obtain a permanent resident visa for my wife, who lived in Poland. Our case was a very complicated one, and he achieved the desired result. He knows the system and provides USCIS with the information they require so that forms are accepted the first time around avoiding delays. I would definitely recommend him to anybody who requires legal services in the field of immigration.

My husband and I had just gotten married and felt like we needed the assistance of a lawyer to ensure everything went smoothly with my change of status. After speaking to a few, Mr. Kohler came out as the front runner. Once meeting with him we knew he was the right Immigration Lawyer for us with his impressive work history and personable interactions. As well as promise to help us step by step. He met all expectations and more. Our application was neatly organized and submitted. We also underwent a mock interview with Mr. Kohler prior to our actual interview with UCIS which helped in calming our nerves the day of. We look forward to working with him again through the next steps to Citizenship.

Like you right now, we want looking around for reviews and immigration lawyers. We interviewed with 3 lawyers, including Michael. The first one just seemed wishy washy, not organized, didn't ask good questions. The second one was an former immigrant from the same country as my spouse. We really wanted that to work out because of communication and understanding of culture but she gave bad and very inaccurate information about the process we needed to take and the fees were outrageous. Then we met with Michael. Very friendly, organized, extremely detail oriented and most importantly asked excellent questions and provided the information and assurance for the path we wanted. I had done a lot of research on the immigration process, which I recommend you to do too so you know if the lawyer is matching up with what you know so you choose better. Michael made sure all our paperwork was well in order. He stopped us even though we were confident we provided the right paperwork as he wasn't so sure about this or that, which he then did his own research and came back to correct us and thank god he did. The process was exactly as he said. He prepared everything immaculately in order with all the details and even probably going beyond what we needed. In the end, everything went extremely smoothly with no issues. He kept us in the loop with any contact with UCIS. Made copies of everything for our own records. Made sure we were ready for the interview itself with a rundown role-play practice. Clarified any questions and concerns we had. Well worth the fee and our time. I don't think it would have went as well if we didn't work with Michael. I am really glad we did. But don't take...

“I have been struggling with immigration problems for 13 years. If it wasn’t for Mr. Kohler it would have been more... When I first went to Mr. Kohler I felt there was a sense of hope. He explained everything to me step by step, he always responded to my emails and calls. He’s very understanding. He is not one of those lawyers who has the dollar signs in their eyes all the time he actually cares. Because of him my family and I are permanent residents in less than 4 months. Even though the distance is far from where I live it was all worth it. If anyone out there who needs immigration help I fully recommend Mr. Kohler because my case was very "unique". I am grateful to him for what he has done for my family and I and can never forget that or him.”

I've had my share of irresponsive, unreliable attorneys. Shortly after I began filing my own documents. After doing so I was granted an interview. At that point I wanted to seek a professional with the educational background to talk the talk. I came across Michael Kohler's profile. Michael's profile resembled the exact job description of my ideal attorney (extremely responsive to calls/emails, provided clients with copies, did what he said when he said he would do it, direct contact no middle man) The exact opposite of my previous experience. He also thinks ahead and plays out the various possible outcomes giving you the option to choose your desired route. Together we were able to come up with plan A, B & C. On the actual day of my interview Michael showed up with his game face and was ready to argue my case. He talked me through the entire waiting period until we went into the interview. Even then he was able to assist with answering any questions I was unsure of. After the interview he went over the legal terminology to ensure I was clear on outcome. Michael made me feel like he truly cared about the outcome and well being of me and my case. There are not many attorneys who would provide the one and one attention as I can truly say he can. I wholeheartedly recommend Michael for any case.

He answered our questions clearly and thoughtfully. His estimated timeline of events was spot on. Michael was generous with his time, we never felt rushed or unimportant. He would update us on where our application stood and confirm we are all on the same page. Michael even conducted a mock interview which we found very helpful. He accompanied us to our interview which gave us comfort in a very stressful time. I feel very lucky to have found Michael and would recommend him to anyone needing advice on any immigration issue. Thank you Michael!
