My husband and I have worked with Atty. Avelino through the processes of fiance and adjustment of status visas and all cases were handled professionally and efficiently. We had some red flags with our applications, but with Atty. Avelino’s expertise, we were able to fly through the application and interviewing processes and finally obtained a green card for my husband.
Aside from the fact that we live in northern California, Atty. Avelino was extremely attentive and responsive to all of our concerns via email or phone(never taking more than a day) and knew our case inside and out.

Irwin is one of the very best immigration lawyers in SoCal no doubt. He’s very thorough, very helpful, smart, patient and articulate. He anticipates problems before they even arise, he gives you plausible solutions for issues on your application. We did working visa, student visa, dependent visa then of course green card petition with him and although the entire process wasn’t always smooth, we never worried because Irwin takes care of everything to the very best of his abilities.

He genuinely cares for his clients and will never dismiss any of your concerns. There might be a lot of immigration lawyers around, many good ones, but it definitely isn’t easy to find a lawyer who is naturally kind, gracious and compassionate like Irwin.

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for all of your immigration needs.

Thank you Atty. Avelino for all the help you’ve given us.

– Neil Marcel Engracia

My family just wanted to express our gratitude to Atty. Irwin Avelino. I remember when I found him on google a year ago. I live in Chicago but everytime I have a question right a way he will answer me through calls or email. Atty. Avelino helped my fiancée to come over for just a short period of time. We got married as soon as he got over but we run into a big problem when me and my husband decided to do the green card on our own.

My husband was denied due to some requirements that we realized we did not submit. I was eight and a half pregnant then and I felt like me and my baby will be left alone here. It has been a year since the last time I have spoken to Atty. Avelino and yet when I left him a message sounded so desperate he never hesitated and called me back right away. He explained to me what supposed to be done and gave us assurance that my husband will be able to acquire a green card. After 5 months we were interviewed and after 5 days after the interview we got his green card.

I am so thankful because if its not because of his expertise our family will not be together. One more thing is Atty. Avelino did not charge me so much.

We honestly recommend Atty. Irwin Avelino for any of your immigration needs. He is a lawyer who has a good heart and very honest. Someone who understands the meaning of Family.

Again we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your help.

– Lorena Espana

Irwin Avelino has tremendous migration attorney skills. I’ve never known another attorney more prepared or focused. He has the ability to dissect a case much like a skilled surgeon, with absolute calm. Nothing seems to rattle this guy or distract him from his goal on a case, which of course, makes him extremely tough to beat.

I used his services for getting E2 Visa , and he handled the case smoothly and diligently and acted proactively on all the issues that might come. He showed his commitment and command as a subject matter expert and as a result me and my family were granted with E2 Visa without any obstacle.

I would like to take the opportunity to thanks Irwin for his friendly nature and professionalism throughout the case. I would recommend him as a great A+ attorney .

– Kamran Zaidi

With all the information available in the internet right now, it might seem easy to file GC paperwork yourself but there are so many things that we would miss without a lawyer even when your case seems pretty straight forward. But that is where the trouble starts. How do you find a good lawyer? Who is not just after your money but available when you have those silly doubts or fears or what ever?

After calling up several lawyers and talking to them, I picked Mr.Avelino because he was straight forward with his prices, very pleasing to talk to, didn’t sound intimidating and I didn’t have to pay for the initial consultation. Trust me some lawyers wanted to charge just to talk for the first time about my case. I would stay away from those blood suckers. But Mr. Avelino was friendly, accommodating, patient and listened to my case and gave me the assurance that this will be a piece of cake. His fees were also among the best at least based on the other lawyer offices I spoke to.

He gave us all the information we need and all the forms we need to fill and I didn’t have to make several trips or calls to get things moving. The delays were only on my side in bringing the right paper work. He was available on phone when ever I had a question and that helped me move things faster.

All through the process, he made a hectic job look smooth. Once I submitted all the required docs, he barely took any time in going through the docs, verifying them and submitting them. He also called us up a few weeks before our interview to set up a mock interview and helped us prepare.

He pays attention to the smallest things and makes sure we are not missing anything. That gives you the confidence that things will go smooth and so they did. In less than 4 months, my GC is approved. I absolutely recommend Irwin M. Avelino for all immigration cases.

– Vishnu C

I’m very very happy that I have stayed with him in handling my Immigration Cases which provided Great Results and always given me updates throughout the whole process.

Looking for the right immigration lawyer is very hard given that there are thousands of them in California alone. Honestly, I have gone through the process of seriously searching for the right one by searching the Google, listing down referrals from my friends, calling each one of them and comparing their opinion about my case. From among the 4 short listed immigration lawyers I have to choose from, Atty. Irwin M. Avelino is EXCEPTIONALLY SUPERIOR from the rest. It is because of his work habits.

We were referred to Irwin by a family friend who had worked with Irwin M. Avelino and had a great experience. We couldn’t have asked for a better lawyer with Irwin M. Avelino was professional, friendly, dedicated and always accommodating. He was extremely flexible in the times and locations where he could meet us to go over our case, something that highlighted his commitment to his clients. He walked us through every step of the process and made something as daunting as navigating America’s immigration system easy to understand and straightforward. Irwin was the reason our case sailed so smoothly and if we had to do it all over again we would pick Irwin to represent us every time without a doubt.

In my quest of finding the right immigration lawyer, I stumbled upon Atty. Avelino. He never charged for an initial consultation fee. He is honest, serious and dedicated.

He will stay with you every step of the way no matter how long the case may take. You don’t need second thoughts with Atty. Avelino, I highly recommend him. My family and I were so ever grateful we met him. Now, both of my parents are living happily here in the United States.

– Rodel Rufo

I first heard news of my green card approval from Atty. Irwin on a weekday morning, and it was the most pleasant surprise I have had in a long time. Initially the feeling was of disbelief — the USCIS review took a long while, but my doubts were quickly dispelled by Atty. Irwin who calmly assured me of the good news and expressed his genuine well wishes for me as well.

When I moved to the US, my case was assigned to a big immigration law firm, and though they did handle my account well, it felt a bit impersonal dealing with various legal associates that will explain to you the how the process works. I have had the opportunity to transfer my case to Atty. Irwin when I was laid off from my previous job. It was an overwhelming time for me, but he made it such a painless switch; he personally took care of all the paperwork, and explained to me all my options to make sure I keep authorized status. And he followed through; which made all the difference.

I highly recommend Atty. Irwin Avelino’s services and am confident that he will fulfill any immigration need with great care and professionalism as he has done for me.

– Antoniette Agregado

We haven’t done any personal meeting with Atty. Irwin Avelino. From the start of the consultation until the completion of the processing of the fiancée petition, employment authorization and permanent residence (green card), everything was done through e-mail, yet he accomplished everything efficiently and professionally. During the period of time we spent in submitting requirements, exchanges of communication as he gave us instruction of what to go through, he showed his unquestionable expertise in the services we availed from him. He was very prompt and knowledgeable and we believe that he is truly reliable and trusted as an immigrant lawyer. There were no hang ups when it comes to his services and I would definitely recommend him to our friends who may need the kind of services we availed. JOB WELL DONE ATTY. IRWIN!

– Adel Domingo

I would highly recommend Attorney Avelino as I am very satisfied with his services and the way he has handled our multiple immigration/visa application process. He is very hardworking, thorough and really knows his work.

The selection : It all started last year when my company was looking for an immigration attorney who can help us in the immigration/visa matters, works in the same timezone as we are and easily reachable when we are in need without going through any red tapes. Now, that was a pretty BIG filter criteria so I sort-listed 5 different attorneys from different part of the west coast region and presented my current situation to each of them individually. All attorneys (except Attorney Avelino) assured me I have a strong case and there is no reason for me to get concerned about my application. Attorney Avelino, however, told me an entirely different story based what I presented to him. After some further research based on what I was told, I realized he is 100% accurate about my situation and that’s how we ended up engaging Attorney Avelino’s services.

Like other reviewers have commented, Attorney Avelino knows in depth the immigration laws and how it would affect our case. He always provides various options at each step and pros/cons for each option with the end goal in mind. He is very professional and at the same time a very genuine person who truly cares for your case. He is very prompt and is always just a phone call away when I need any information. Attorney Avelino is truly excellent in his field!

Three Months After We Hired Atty. Irwin Avelino, I Got My Permanent Resident Card

My petition and adjustment of status was filed (handled) by a different attorney. For almost three years, the only updates we received were either it’s under review or massive review.

Then by November, of last year we received a letter from the INS.  The letter stated that our marriage was not bona fide, and that it’s only for immigration purposes.  They asked us to submit additional documents again to prove that our marriage is true and bona fide. My husband and I are married and living together for five 5 years now this April 08, 2010.

Again when my relative heard about it, Atty. Irwin Avelino’s name was mentioned once more. At this time my husband was looking for another lawyer to represent us. There were lawyers referred to us by our friends, but then I told him why don’t we try this young lawyer referred to me. My husband agreed, but he wanted to see and talk to him first. So I called the number given to me and made an appt. to Atty. Avelino. After we have talked to Atty. Avelino, after a few question and answers, Atty. Avelino agreed to handle and represent us on our case. The reason was he believed in us, and that the marriage is real and bona fide. Atty. Avelino trusted us and we gave our trust in him.

Three months after we hired Atty. Irwin Avelino, I got my Permanent Resident Card already.  Atty. Irwin Avelino maybe young, but he knows his field and he knows what he’s doing and he’s smart too.

I believed in my heart that GOD sent Atty.Irwin Avelino to us.


Personalized Service

Green Card In 3 Months! Yes It’s Possible!

My Husband and I got married April 2009. Although we had some ideas on how to file the petition, we were still having some doubts on our ability to do it and so we considered a professional to do the work. Of course, we wanted to make sure everything turns out perfectly.

We’re so glad we met with Atty. Avelino. He was very thorough on every single detail of the whole process. We were very comfortable working with him. To make the long story short, I got my green card in just 3 short months. We even took a vacation to Hawaii while Atty. Avelino was processing our case. Really great service! Plus, you work with him directly throughout the entire process.

His work is superb and seamless and I will recommend him without any reservations to anyone and everyone who needs services in the immigration area!!

Very Professional and Efficient

Having immigrated to the US in 1975 on a Green Card status, I received my US Citizenship through Naturalization during my years in college. Since college, I had not traveled internationally and through various housing moves, I had lost my Naturalization Certificate. In January of 2007, my job required that I travel overseas in March – unfortunately, I did not have my passport updated; and to do so it required my original copy of the Naturalization Certificate.  Through my own research, it did not look as if I would be able to make the business trip – not because of my passport; rather due to the missing Certificate required to issue an emergency passport. By referral I was connected to Irwin Avelino. Mr. Avelino assisted me in locating and retrieving a confirmed status of my Naturalization Certificate within a month (usually requiring 6 months to a year); and I was able to make my trip overseas in March of 2007. Mr. Avelino and his staff were very professional and efficient in helping me acquire the legal documents I needed to get me on my way to a very important business trip.  A warm felt thanks to Mr. Avelino and his staff!


I Treasure Your Dedication, Efficiency And Personalized Service

Thank you Irwin for your guidance, patience and help in getting my H-1 Visa, PERM and I-140 immigrant petition approved.  I treasure your dedication; efficiency and personalized service in helping me walk through the procedures of each application.  I look forward to your help in getting my adjustment of status approved.
