I was there attorney is a nice man he answered all my questions

I was referred to J Bradley Pace by a friend who had received successful service from the Law Firm. My friend new that I had consulted with some immigration lawyers, most of whom were negative or told me that my case was complicated. My wife and I made an appointment over the phone, during the phone call we were pleased with initial conversation and decided to travel and meet with Attorney Bradley. He listened to us, diligently went through our documents, allowed us to us questions, responded to our questions openly without giving us false hope. He fully explained the process to us after agreeing to take our case, remained professional and provided guidance entire time. We received updates in timely manner, available over the phone, created time for us and we never felt being rushed during appointments. He worked with us when it came to service fee. His advise to us was invaluable, all datelines were met, always direct and frank in conversation. He gave us hope that we had lost, did not over-promise anything. Did not give up on us, one time he told us " so long us you are willing to fight I will fight with you", we felt the teamwork and partnership in our case. He never gave up on us, did not stop until we succeeded. Having Brad as our immigration attorney was the best decision we made, professional, knowledgeable and experienced. At the end of it all no words can fully describe our joy and gratitude as a family. A happy family thanks to Attorney Bradley Pace. I will definitely recommend Pace Law Firm anyone seeking immigration advise or service.
I worked with attorney Brad Pace for the past few years on my asylum case. From the beginning he was very professional, responded to my questions and concerns very quickly, every time there was an update or change he would provide it to me, and I always felt confident with his guidance. I highly recommend this firm, his knowledge and experience made my process go easier than how it was.
Words not enough to express my gratitude for the outstanding services Brad Pace offered me. He was so professional, friendly, truthful, experienced and showed high level understanding to my case. Scheduling meeting with him was very easy; he was always available to address any immigration questions I have. When contacted about my citizenship application, he took a step by step approach to address my complicated case. He guided me from start to finish. Today, I'm so glad I'm an American Citizen. I will always recommend him to anyone in need of immigration services.
Great to work with
Mr Pace was very upfront with information and extremely knowledgeable about the process to do the Visa extension and the Wife Visa. He would listen to what we were looking for and provide the best approach and really helped us understand what options we had and what the next steps would be. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is trying to get their Visa.
My expectations have always been greatly exceeded!
I have been visiting Brad since 1999 and feel that I must tell as many people as I possibly can about how good he took care of my cases, and the shortest time it took to complete my citizenship, and the time it took for my youngest son from Sudan to join me here in Kansas City. My expectations have always been greatly exceeded by his services. I wish his firm growth in the United States as well as globally.
Thank you for never giving up!
After two lawyers and a lot of money and frustration, my husband and I met Brad Pace. He gave us the confidence to follow through and pursue our immigration case. Over the years, he has become our dear friend and our very trustworthy and dependable lawyer. My husband and I finally had our dreams come true. We were reunited just two weeks ago after being apart for 11 months which required a lot of sacrifice, having the confidence to take the chance, and an amazing lawyer. Thank you Brad for never giving up and always being there for us. I am reunited with my best friend and we can finally enjoy the joys and privileges of America and living life as a very happily married couple.
We had a fantastic experience with Brad Pace. Not only he accepted to take on our case as we moved from one city to another but he was very detailed and precise when sharing information with us regarding process and things to do. Brad was very nice and professional. Highly recommended
