Through many years, I received advice from several law firms but none like Barbeito & Hiatt. Their high level of preparation, ability, and experience built the high level of trust I have in them as attorneys. They analyzed in detail every option for us and suggested the best path to follow with great professionalism. I am very thankful and can highly recommend Barbeito & Hiatt for any immigration process. They get things done the right way.”
