You have choices when it comes to choosing an immigration attorney to represent you, but choices can be overwhelming, and it’s hard to know who the right attorney is. Let us assure you that Alexander Vail is the right immigration attorney for you. But you don’t have to take our word for it; we encourage you to read our clients’ testimonials, which highlight many of Alex’s qualities. He’s certainly a skilled lawyer with plenty of experience. But many lawyers are experienced. So what’s the famous so-called “X-factor” that truly sets Alex apart?
We think it’s his unique ability to listen emphatically and his profound dedication to immigration law. As the son of a Cuban mother and an Anglo-American father, Alex knows personally how important it is to keep families together—and he will go to bat for your family as if it were his own. We know that the immigration process can be intimidating and confusing, but one of Alex’s other strong qualities is his ability to explain the processes and the legal steps in plain language. He can help with removal defense, family-based immigration, and the naturalization process. Alex also has experience in handling criminal-related matters and can help you if you’ve had any adverse encounters with law enforcement.
