Great attorney. Did what my criminal and immigration attorneys could not do. He got me out of detention, reduced my criminal charge, and got me a waiver. All the other attorneys said it could not be done, and he did it.

Best attorney out there. Because of him I am United States citizen. I had talked to other attorneys in the city i lived in and they told me if filed for citizenship, I would be deported because of an incident in the past. I talked other attorneys in El Paso and he is the only one that actually requested my file to look into it. After he investigated he gave me my options. He said removal was a remote possibility but more than likely I would get my citizenship based on his review. We went to the interview and he disclosed my prior incident at the time of the application and interview and he talked to examiner and supervisor and there were no issues. It was granted thanks to Mr. Mondragon.

He is good. I was in custody facing deportation and had been deported in the past. While in criminal custody my parents talked to him because my great grandmother was a United States citizen. Other attorneys had told my parents that I was going to be deported again. My parents hired him and he explained the complications of the case and what we needed to prove. Before he submitted all the paperwork, immigration official had talked to me and told me that upon my release I would be deported and they showed me deportation paperwork. Mr. Mondragon filed the paperwork. He and my dad went to the interview and with the evidence and argument Mr. Mondragon presented we had to await the decision. The decision was pending a long time but upon completion of my sentence, immigration released me telling me that I was a United States citizen. I am only awaiting the certificate. Everyone said my case was complicated and almost impossible, but Mr. Mondragon did the hard work and got it done.

Honest !!! Not your typical attorney, he doesn't talk much rather work more and he proved his words through actions. After seeing several unethical law firms who would just talk about fees and saying my deportation process was a difficult situation. I found out mr Mondragon was the best attorney for challenging cases like mine. He first did his research then gave me an answer, he said I had just one last opportunity but he had faith in putting a case together to represent me. Sure enough he got me a green card after facing criminal charges and a deportation at once. God bless Mr Mondragon and his staff.

This attorney helped my wife and stepdaughter obtain there legal status. My wife had immigration issues. He resolved her issues. At the beginning he was up front and told us the process and how long it was going to take. He told us to be patient because of my wife's history. It took a while, but it was worth it. Best immigration attorney.

Great attorney. I was granted legal status through spouse whom I separated and immigration reopened and denied my status. I went to like 5 attorneys and all of them said since I separated, I was out of luck. Mr. Mondragon actually reviewed my case and said immigration has the authority to do that, but not in my case because they did not follow the proper procedure. He submitted his argument and immigration gave us an appointment and officer said Mr. Mondragon was right. I got my status back that was wrongfully taken away and now I am a permanent resident working on my citizenship. Best attorney period.

Mr. Mondragon is an excellent attorney whom you should contact for legal representation in either your criminal or immigration case. He is empathetic, thorough, direct and most of all - professional. Mr. Mondragon took time out of the end of his business day to review a family case and explained to me our options while providing legal information/recommendations based on some of his experiences. He did all of this without taking my case and spoke to me on his own time. Previously, I had spoken to approximately 5 to 10 lawyers, all from the El Paso area and received little to no information from them. That is not the case with Mr. Mondragon. If you live in the El Paso area and need legal help with your criminal case or immigration case, contact Mr. Mondragon. He is worth every penny and best of all is someone who has gained my respect and support. A huge thank you to Mr. Mondragon from Chicago, IL....

This attorney helped me when other attorneys could not. I was granted my lawful status then immigration cancelled because they said it was fraud. Mr. Mondragon reopened the case and challenged the basis of cancellation and process. They granted my status after other attorneys said the time had ran and there was nothing I could do. He is good.

This attorney got me out of the camp. While out, I get arrested and back to immigration. He resolves my criminal case and gets me out of immigration with lawful status. Other people in cell said it was impossible and he did it. The Judge told me after our immigration hearing that i probably hired the best immigration attorney if not one of the top two. He is really good. Would highly recommend.

This attorney helped me out of a big problem. I was charged with felony tampering government records. At the time I was married to a US citizen. Mr. Mondragon got me out of criminal detention. He drafted his proposed plan of action and prevented immigration from taking me to detention. He reduced the offense to a misdemeanor and told me it should not affect me. We went to the interview and he submitted the paperwork. A couple of days later, I received a notice that I needed a waiver for the misdemeanor conviction because it was a misrepresentation. Mr. Mondragon told me they were wrong and that if we did the waiver we were accepting they were right and that my waiver would probably be denied because there was no hardship to my wife. i.e. no minor kids, no medical issues, recently married. He filed response to there request for the waiver and filed his argument. Four weeks later I get my legal status and no waiver needed. He resolved my criminal case and immigration case and everything worked out great. I think if I would of stayed with my criminal attorney he would jeopardized my immigration because he wanted me to plead to something quick to get me out of custody. Mr. Mondragon got me out fairly quick and looked out for my best interest. Best immigration attorney in town.

Best attorney. My case has a long history, but I will be brief. I was resident convicted of a serious offense and placed on deferred probation. Mr. Mondragon fought it and after an appeal we won. After being released, I am revoked on my deferred on technical issues and immigration picks me up and charges me on a different reason for deporting me. Mr. Mondragon fights it and we loose in immigration and he takes it all the way to federal appeal court. During the time it was pending in federal, I was deported. Mr. Mondragon wins the federal appeal. I come back to bridge and immigration takes me in on another ground. Mr. Mondragon represents me in court and basically told the court and prosecutor, you can have 3 bites of the same apple. You lost your chances and he supported with the law. Needless to say, I was released. I spent a lot of time in immigration detention, but it was worth it. My family talked to other lawyers that said I did not have a chance and all are wondering how in the world I am still here. I gave them Mr. Mondragon's phone number.

This attorney got me out of immigration detention with a waiver in 2 weeks when other attorneys said it would take 3 months. At the first hearing, he told the judge it should not be a difficult case and if he could squeeze in a quick hearing. The judge did as Mr. Mondragon requested and was out right away. After granting my waiver, the Judge even told me I had hired one of the most competent and honest attorneys that does immigration law. I agreed.

This attorney helped me and my 2 daughters. I was detained and Mr. Mondragon got me a bond and I got out. I had an application from my sister that was filed a long time ago. Immigration was trying to deport me, but Mr. Mondragon cancelled my deportation. He also transferred my case to the state I was living in. He told me to get a lawyer over there to complete getting the papers for me and my daughters. I went to different attorneys and all of them told me I could only get papers for me and my youngest daughter because my other daughte was over twenty-one. I asked Mr. Mondragon, and he really wanted to help me. He told me the attorneys were wrong. He did all the paperwork and his concern was my oldest daughter as there was a deadline. He filed all the paperwork for us and I obtained my green card first, followed by my oldest daughter, then my youngest daughter. He did all the paperwork and explained the process. My oldest daughter's case was confusing, but he was right. At the interview, the person told my daughter that her application was the first time he ever seen that, but that Mr. Mondragon was right and that it would probably be approved and it was approved. Thank you Mr. Mondragon.

Great attorney. Mr. Orlando Mondragon and his whole staff helped me get my husband Visa, after he was depported in 2008. I started the immigration procces on my own. After a few years passed my mother recommended that I speek to an attorney. We started to seek online and by hearing others we found Mr. Mondragon. My husband was finally let back into the U.S. the begaining of August 2013. It was a very long journey but we couldn't do it without his help. He did almost all the paperwork and he never gave up on us. He was always there when I needed him or his staff. They are very responesable and understanding ready to help you at any time. We can never thank him enough for all his help. I would recommend him to anyone in the same situation. He is the best attorney.

Great attorney. My husband had been denied his residency visa in Juarez and denial letter said that my husband was barred for 10 years without eligibility of a waiver. We talked to other attorneys and they just accepted the denial as valid. We talked to Mr. Mondragon and he reviewed the denial and our paperwork. He said we had a case if he could convince the consulate that they erred and that he was eligible for a waiver. He broke the case into to services convincing them that my husband was eligible for the waiver and then the waiver. In our presence, he sent an e-mail to the consulate explaing our position. Approximately 15 days later the consulate responds that based on further review he was eligible for a waiver. Mr. Mondragon completed the waiver and supporting documents and my husband was granted his residency. If we would of listened to other attorneys, my husband would still be in Mexico until 2022 waiting for his 10 year bar to run.

Great attorney. Sympathetic and understanding. He won an asylum case for me and my wife from Pakistan. Background is that me and my wife use to be in U.S. under student visas and we graduated and had 3 United States citizens daughters. We returned to Pakistan but because we had American children we were targeted. Went to Mexico with all family and called Mr. Mondragon. He told me asylum would be difficult, but under circumstance we had a shot. He told me how parole worked but we ran the risk of being detained while asylum was pending. We went to bridge with all 3 children and wife. Mr. Mondragon met at bridge. Request asylum. At bridge they hold us wife and I and put children in foster because my relative did not arrive in time to pick them up from out of state. Mr. Mondragon was willing to take children while brother arrived but immigration did not allow. We spent one month in custody and Mr. Mondragon helped our children in court in foster care, got us out, and reunited us. He transferred the case to out of state where were living with relative. Mr. Mondragon came to where we were, presented evidence, testimony (he had prepared us for hearing), and over prosecutors objections, our asylum was granted. Now we are living legally in the United States. We had talked to other attorneys of asylum, but almost all said it was impossible. Mr. Mondragon said it was difficult but not impossible under "social group." And guess what, he was right. Thank you Mr. Mondragon.

Mr. Mondragon is the best attorney. He had helped numerous family members become citizens, but my case was extremely complicated. Sometime in 1995 I had been deported for a serious drug offense. I reentered illegally and was apprehended and was facing over five years in federal custody. My mother was a United States citizen. We hired Mr. Mondragon, and what I liked is that he was upfront with us. He explained that I had a weak citizenship claim because we did not have the documentary proof that my mother had lived in the United States the required time to transfer citizenship to me. He told me that he would file the claim and prepare the paperwork and if it was granted, I would get out, and if it was denied that it would be better to plead to the offense and get less time than going to trial and jury convicting me and giving me more time. Mr. Mondragon interviewed my mother and together they prepared a detailed affidavit of her presence in the United States. It was more like a book than an affidavit. They both went to the interview and two days after the interview I was released as my application was approved. Now I am a United States Citizen by birth all thanks to Mr. Mondragon. Thanks to Mr. Mondragon I went from being here illegally and in jail to a United States citizen, free and working lawfully. I spent about a year in custody while the process went through, but at the beginning Mr. Mondragon told me it could take up to a year and also to expect the worst and hope for the best because of the lack of evidence.

I have been meaning to write a review regarding Mr. Mondragon regarding my immigration case. I basically owe him my life. He was able to do what no one else was able to to do. I was a lawful permanent resident since about 1969. During the course of time I picked up numerous misdemeanors to include a couple possession of marihuana, about 3 of them. Immigration arrested in about 2006. I hired Mr. Mondragon. He basically told me that since I had two separate drug conviction (even though they were small), I was considered an aggravated felony and subject to automatic deportation. He also told me there was a case pending in the Supreme Court that may change the application of the law, but for it to benefit me, I would have to be fighting my case. He told me I would lose at the immigration court, I would lose at the immigration appeal, and that I would lose at the federal appellate level. The hope was that while I was on appeal, the law would change. Needless to say we lost at the immigration court and immigration appeal. After the immigration appeal that we lost in 2007, I was deported and I spent about 3 1/2 years in Mexico whilie he appealed federally. During that time the law changed in my favor and he was able to bring me back to the United States in 2011 and I had my cancellation hearing with the judge (granted of course because it was Mr. Mondragon) and I got my residency back. He advised me correctly. Other individuals that I was with who's attorneys did not advise them of the current state of the law and they did not appeal were not eligible to come back and they remain deported. I am extremely thankful and lucky that I hired Mr. Mondragon and followed his advise or else I would be in Mexico like the other unfortunate individuals that did not appeal based on the advise or wrongful advise of their lawyers.

I was detained in immigration custody for a drug offense that occured in 1999. I was detained at the bridge and placed in custody. I hired Mr. Mondragon and he told me to be patient and that he would seek what was called cancellation. The Judge was so backed up that the hearing was set about 5 months away. Mr. Mondragon was able to accelerate the hearing by about 3 months with a different judge. Other cellmates told me that the different judge would probably deny me. Mr Mondragon explained to me that the judge was fair and since I only had one criminal offense that I should be fine. We did the hearing. Mr Mondragon did all the questioning, two questions from the prosecutor, and the judge granted my application. I am out and now we are looking into citizenship. The reason I write this review is because I do not agree with negative reviews of Mr. Mondragon. Those reviews are the furthest from the truth. Mr. Mondragon kept me and my family informed by visiting me in detention and contacting my family.
