Alma Chacon is a brilliant immigration attorney. Alma is kind, and caring. From the time of our first consultation until the time my mom received the green card approval, Alma and her team were with me every step of the way. Alma is accommodating, thorough and meticulous. She is very easily accessible, and responds to emails and phone calls almost immediately. I would recommend Alma to anyone who is looking for an immigration attorney; her fees are very reasonable. Alma treated my case like I was a priority. She eased my mind, and assured me that everything was in order. In my opinion, she went beyond my expectations, and she is a rare and prime example of excellence.
