Matt Merrick is an exceptional lawyer, talented at his profession, personable, honest, and very diligent in his work. I have trusted him once, and would again trust him with my life! I met Matt after a string of unfruitful encounters with several other immigration lawyers who were all unable or willing to take on my case. I was applying for a green card based on my marriage to a U.S. citizen, but it was a challenging case because of some criminal matters on my record from the United Kingdom, including a “Caution” for some charges that could create difficulty for me with U.S. immigration system. The other lawyers I had spoken to did not want to take the case because it was not a “sure thing” or because it would require in-depth research, planning, knowledge and plenty of skill and experience dealing with USCIS.
Matt not only was willing to take on my case, but he rose to the challenge with an air of confidence and reassurance. His attitude lifted me from what was a dark and challenging experience. Matt gave me the assurance I needed so I could focus on my family life, knowing that the matter was in good hands. Matt was also always available to communicate with me directly, whenever I had questions or needed advice.
After extensive efforts and due to Matt’s meticulous preparation of my adjustment of status application as well as preparing my wife and I for our immigration interview, I am so happy and grateful to be able to say that my Green Card application was approved. USCIS needed extra time to review the legal arguments Matt had prepared to show USCIS that the U.K. caution was not a conviction and that the other matters should not prevent me from becoming a lawful permanent resident of the United States. I recommend Matt without reservation and will continue to use him throughout the rest of my immigration processes.
