Immigration law from the Law Office of Michael Carlin PLLC Law Office of Michael Carlin PLLC


We spoke with other lawyers but none gave us the level of professional skill and supportive advice that we received from Michael Carlin.

successful I-130 petitioner

Michael is a great immigration lawyer. I have been very happy working with him. He is sincere and honest. He listens my concern and try to get an answer with the best effort. I highly recommend him.

successful naturalization applicant

My husband and I hired Mr. Carlin after attempting to complete the immigration process by ourselves and having difficulties in doing so. Upon initially meeting Mr. Carlin, we were impressed with how knowledgeable he was while presenting us with our options. He was very patient with how anxious I was and diligently kept us up to date on the latest information regarding our case. He more than exceeded our expectation and we are truly appreciative of all his help. We would highly recommend Mr. Carlin!

successful green-card applicant

Mr. Carlin is my representative in the immigration case for myself and my daughter. It was a difficult and complex immigration case, where his help was extremely needed. Me and my daughter were not in the USA at the moment of filing the petition, what made the case even more complicated. Also, it is probably an unusual example - quite unique, actually...I was a self-petitioning battered and abused spouse of an American citizen, trying to receive the Green Cards for myself and a little daughter. Since we started our official cooperation, Mr. Carlin has been absolutely incredible. The effort, help, knowledge, and support which he presents, is priceless. Thanks to the wonderful involvement of Mr. Michael Carlin, and his help, me and my daughter have indeed received the Green Cards, and have been happily back in the USA. We are also very grateful to Mr. Carlin for staying in contact with us, and making sure that all of the necessary official requirements are fulfilled, and that our immigration case is always taken care of! Thank you, Mr. Carlin for all of your hard work - we couldn't have done it without you!

successful applicant for an immigrant visa

My husband and I have had the pleasure of Mr. Carlin taking care of my husband’s immigration case. He was in the process of deportation after a long 20 year battle with immigration. Mr. Carlin came on board about 3 years ago. Mr. Carlin was fairly priced, gave realistic expectations of the situation with no false promises. He is a professional, kind, caring, humble man but willing to fight hard for you. Finding Mr. Carlin was an answer to prayer. Mr. Carlin continued to knock on doors even when nothing seemed to be in our favor. He did not always have the answers but had no problem saying he didn't know but he would find out, which he always did. Mr. Carlin always kept us informed. After almost 3 years we are so happy and blessed to say our battle is over. My husband received his green card and our life is starting a whole new chapter without the constant fear of immigration. I refer everyone in need of immigration help to Mr. Carlin and will continue to do so.

spouse of successful green-card applicant

My husband and I weren't sure if we should hire a lawyer for this immigration process, but we also weren't sure if we were doing everything correctly. Michael allowed us to sit with him and ask many questions. After this first meeting my husband and I both felt comfortable working with him through the rest of the process. Michael helped us make decisions and regularly checked our case status online to send us updates. We feel lucky to have found him and will turn to him in the future.
