The Jurado Firm has been extremely supportive during my naturalization process.  Their response time is excellent and they treat you like family not a client.  I would recommend them to anyone looking for legal immigration support.

Carlos Jurado was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of a satisfactory resolution seemed impossible. Not only was he able to help us out in a desperate time of need, he did it with such compassion and offered emotional support to myself and those I care about most. I definitely recommend Carlos Jurado without reservation.
