Michael has been an integral part of taking care of my immigration needs in the United States over the past 18 years. Without any reservation I would recommend having Michael help you navigate through immigration. Michael is thorough, knows the legal processes, and sincerely helpful and caring. I've had visas, permanent resident status, and with assistance from Michael, I passed my citizenship interview - so I guess you could say he worked himself out of a job! More...

We first met with Michael late January of 2019. My spirit felt very good about having him represent us for the adjustment status for my husband. Prior to seeing Michael we met with multiple lawyers who just seem to be in it for the money didn't really give any real details of what to expect or what we needed, they all really just went over price, price and price. With Michael it was completely different from the moment we first sat with him he encouraged us and let us know what the process will be like and was realistic in the time frame. In early February we decided to go ahead and make the commitment to this law firm. Michael sent us tasks to do online we completed them and he immediately filed for us. His price was fair and his commitment to us was genuine. On a side note we prayed for our lawyer, we prayed for favor from God. And I'll tell you it took a total of 7 months from February 2019 from when we filed to September of 2019, my husband was approved for his EAD, travel documents, social security number, and finally his green card. 7 months!!!!! You can't tell me that's not my God!!. Online the time frame from the USCIS says something different said 11 to 23 months for the processing of the i - 485 but I tell you I stayed in prayer because I know what my God can do . Michael and his team always responded to our questions and concerns within 24 hours, communication with them was never lacking. I want to say thank you to Michael and his team Tessa, Natalie everybody who helped us and allowed God to move within them whether they knew it or not. Thank you for your time, your commitment and your hard work! You are most appreciated! More...

Indeed first class immigration deserves the name "first class". After my wife and I visited other lawyers who were money conscious, we found michael online. In fact he was very professional and had enough time to explain everything in details regarding our case to us. From the filing date to the time my green card was ordered was 7months.1st of all I give thanks to God and I say God bless you Michael and your team for the professional job you did.I will always recommend you to anyone who needs immigration assistance.

A friend recommended Michael to me after a less than desirable experience with my first lawyer. Although he was very busy, he took my case on and completely turned it around. He was professional and knowledgable, and constantly made himself available to work with me to ensure information was compiled in the best possible way. He went completely above and beyond - even continuing to answer questions after my case had been approved. I highly recommend Michael, and will definitely be going back to him for any future immigration needs. He is honest, dependable, trustworthy, efficient, and above all, just a really solid guy who genuinely cares. I am so glad I made the choice to go with him. More...

When we went for the interview it was simple. All the papers and information were already there, we were finished in 10 minutes. Five stars aren't enough.

I cannot praise Michael Smallbone and his team highly enough for navigating and supporting me through the immigration process from a change in circumstances after arriving on my visitor visa; through to receiving my Greencard.Michael was recommended by a friend in Los Angeles who had several expensive and unhappy experiences with immigration lawyers. I had interviewed several lawyers and got conflicting advice which made the process all the more confusing and stressful. Unfortunately, I was left feeling it is an industry that can feed on client's fear and doubts - with time pressure. I found it difficult to find someone that could be trusted for both service to meet my needs and at a predictable price.I am very grateful for Michael and Brandi's professionalism and friendly, supportive approach in turning a highly anxious and difficult process into a step by step path to a successful result; based on my circumstances.What is more, I have never met the man beyond phone calls and emails and look forward to one day shaking his hand. I am in LA and Michael's location in Tennessee did not present any problems whatsoever.I can't recommend Michael highly enough as an immigration lawyer that can be trusted with your circumstances. His pricing was pleasantly fair and reasonable and he is very reliable. A stand up guy. More...

Having signed an Agreement with an Agent who would be helping my career in the US, I sought out an attorney to assist me in applying for an 01 petition to work in the US. After reviewing the complex documents and requirements, I knew that I was not qualified to undertake this task myself. The first attorney I spoke to turned out to be a disappointment. He really didn’t understand my needs. A former Manager and well known public figure introduced me to Michael Smallbone, an Immigration Attorney he knew of who had a reputation for getting the job done in a professional and timely manner. Michael Smallbone was a blessing to me. The process was painless and I felt comfortable and confident throughout the entire process knowing that I had Michael and his team helping me out!It wasn’t long before my application was approved! And that’s not all. Even after I was approved, he continued offering me his expert advice! I recommend him to all of my friends! Professional, customer service is amazing, and just a nice and friendly guy!Jay Lane, Inspiration Speaker, Vlogger & Writer More...

Best (and most affordable) Immigration Lawyer in the US! I was referred to Michael Smallbone by a friend of mine who went through the process of obtaining a green card. I wasn't disappointed.He is always available to answer my questions (even during late hours of the night) and is very easy to work with. The whole tedious immigration process felt like a breeze having Michael on my side.I know of a lot of other people who also used him for immigration purposes and they share the same great experience Michael gave them. (not surprisingly). I will continue to refer Michael to anyone in need of an immigration lawyer.Thank you Michael Smallbone!! More...

Michael is not only great at what he does but is also just a nice dependable guy who has your back.A friend of mine from New Zealand recommended Michael to me my sophomore year of college. He was so generous with his time and was kind enough to answer all of my questions over the phone. 3 years later, I graduated and was ready to file my O-1 Visa with him. After a series of life hiccups (Michael was always so accessible and there to help me think through everything) I have my visa!!One of my friends had the misfortune of picking an immigration law who was shut down by the government for fraudulent activities. She had no one to turn to and an O1 petition already in progress, so I told her to call Michael. Michael was so amazing, he calmed her down and set up a conference call with a USCIS officer the next day!Now, I always refer my friends to Michael to save them from the heartache! More...
