My husband and I highly recommend Mr. Ladd and his staff to anyone that is needing any Immigration services.  He treated us with respect and truth.  His staff was so helpful, kind and understanding, and kept us informed of every document we needed at every step of my husband's case.

The first consultation with Mr. Ladd and his paralegal put us at ease and gave us the confidence we needed to continue with our case.  The process was long, but well worth it!  His paralegal Jennifer helped us all along the way.   She is excellent!  Extremely thorough and very knowledgeable.


Allen has handled several immigration related issues from me and my family (green card/work visa).  He has always been very professional and his extensive experience in immigration matters have helped me get approvals in all my immigration cases.  Allen cares about each case and as a full time immigration attorney he is very through and provides a personal touch.  I would recommend Allen for all immigration cases!


I am very thankful that I found such a great lawyer.  Mr. Ladd has been amazing.  He took my immigration case on and it has been a very complicated very tense situation with [the] court.  He is very knowledgeable in all aspects of immigration and when he needed help with different aspects of my case, he reached out to different attorneys to get their help.  He guided me through every step and was really there for me through the entire process.  He is honest and forthright and has never misled me.  He listened and was very comforting and understanding of my unique situation.  He truly cares about his clients and wants the best for them.  He is an excellent lawyer.  I would most definitely hire him if I have future immigration issues and I most strongly recommend him to any future clients.


When I met with Mr. Ladd regarding my wife's immigration case he clearly explained the process to me and what steps would be involved.  Everything occurred exactly [as] he outlined and the timeline only lagged his original estimates by a few months (due to delays in government agencies processing documents). He does an excellent job of managing expectations, delivering as promised, and ensuring the process goes as smoothly and efficiently as possible.
