My husband and I hired Mario Godoy to assist us with my husband’s permanent residency. We have dealt with other lawyers in the past and Mario exceeded our expectations. He handled our case in a timely manner and always attended to our questions in a very professional manner.
Set an appoint with Mario this morning at 8:30AM. He reviewed my case carefully and pointed out the problem with my document. In addition, he represented several different ways to handle my case and showed me what are the pros and cons. He is honest and seems quite experienced with the immigrant issues. Very informative.

Mr. Godoy was wonderful to work with. I needed help with an immigration issue, and from the beginning, Mr. Godoy was prompt and courteous. Always getting back to me within 24 hours with any questions I had along the way. The rest of his staff was also very helpful when Mr. Godoy was not available. They always took the time to listen, and never made judgement. I would and have recommended Mr. Godoy to family and friends. He will get the job done right!

I have never had any luck with hiring an attorney until I hired the Godoy Law Office Immigration Law Firm. My husband was placed into deportation proceedings and a cousin recommended this other law firm in the Chicago area. This lawyer never showed up to the appointments, but was more than happy to take our money and then ask for more when they were failing to meet their contractual agreements. Needless to say, I fired them and went on the hunt for a new lawyer. This is when I found Godoy Law Office. Due to my bad experience previously, I was hesitant to hire another lawyer and explained this to Godoy Law Office. They listened to my experience and made my new one a very pleasant one! They allowed us to make payments. They showed up to court early!!! This was very important to me. Plus, they took my case because they believed they could win it and they did!!! Throughout the case, the judge kept explaining to the attorney that everything he wanted to try was not going to work– even though my husband had an unusual case. Did this deter the attorney? In no shape or form did it deter him and he kept submitting the paperwork. Not once did the lawyer let us down. If you want an honest punctual lawyer, who is going to be on your side throughout the case, then look no further. You have found your lawyer! Hurry up and call Godoy Law Office and give your mind and heart some peace while they take care of you with their expertise. I know I am glad I did and will continue to call them in the future for my legal needs!!!

Thanks again for being an honest law firm and for showing up on time. We really appreciated that! I hope this law firm achieves all its goals and remains around for a long time. This is the first time a law firm has not taken me for a ride and never helped my cause.

Mr. Godoy is a great Lawyer, as well as his staff. He was always on point and always on top of things. He had great communication with us, and with my father even though he was in custody, He would even let us talk to him. I want to Thank Mr. Godoy and all his staff for the great hard work they did. Everything was a smooth process and great communication. Everything came out like we wanted. My father was out of immigration custody in 11 months. Our life has gone back to normal. Thanks to Mr. Godoy and his wonderful staff for helping us maintain our family together. I would highly recommend Mr. Godoy and his staff.

I highly recommend Godoy Law Office for anyone who is looking for assistance with Immigration issues. I have worked with Mario and his team beginning July 2014 to obtain my wife’s Permanent Residency and most currently we have been working to get our 2 kids to the United States. My wife and I are so happy and elated beyond words they now have their travel Visas and have been “cleared for takeoff” from the Philippines.

We also need to mention Mario’s team starting with Attorney Luke Manno who has been working with us most recently to prepare, review and process the paperwork for the kids, as well as Herb Gonzalez and Luly Villanueva whose expertise, attention to detail and support has been invaluable.
As we are approaching the end of this process, my wife and I are in complete agreement the Mario Godoy Law Office was the “Right Choice” for us. For matters of Immigration, The Godoy Law Office should be your choice for their knowledge, expertise, support, understanding, compassion and responsiveness.

It was a great experience working with Godoy Law Office. We came to them with a situation we believed to be hopeless, after receiving bad advice from a different lawyer. We wanted to work with someone who was knowledgeable, professional and responsive and Godoy Law Office team was all of that and more. They led us through the maze of immigration policies, laws and solutions that we didnt know existed, and they helped us achieve our goals in record speed. They pretty much fixed a difficult immigration situation seamlessly and we are very lucky we found them, as their guidance and expertise and the results we achieved have made a huge impact on our lives going forward. We would highly recommend Godoy Team to anyone looking for immigration advice!

The team at Godoy Law Office is the epitome of excellence when considering the legal field. They are not your regular lawyers or law associates. Their sense of service and work ethic is incredible and the cost is not exorbitant. Every court date would be reminded of by a call a week before, as well as days before; payment is arranged smoothly and easily. Their presence in court is effective and confident, but most importantly they care about you and how they can help you legally. Honestly, they will be honest about the law and what they can do to help you. Personally, I will be forever grateful for how patient they were with me and how thoroughly they reviewed my case. They did everything they could to help me out and believed in me to change for the better. I recommend Mario Godoy for anyone seeking legal assistance.

I usually don’t have the time to write reviews, but this one deserves to be posted. After several lawyers didn’t wanted to take my case because it was “too complicated “, Mario stepped in and took it.Yes-my case was a little bit complicated, but not for Mario. He earned my trust and respect on the very first consultation. After he took my case he filled all the necessary papers and left no stone unturned until my case was dismissed. Today I feel great thanks to Mario, I don’t have a felony case anymore and my Immigration status is healthy. Mario really went above and beyond about my case, I was always in the loop of what’s happening and if there were any changes his office would contact to let me know. Overall I’m super satisfied with Mario Godoy and would recommend too all friends that I know and need a good lawyer.

I have to say that his team is awesome, they kept in touch with me often with updates on my case and I was able to get my permit renewed sooner that I though.

Words cannot express how thankful I am to Mario Godoy for his sincere compassion and efforts in assisting me with obtaining my U Visa. While coming highly recommended to me by one of my friends, Mario’s level of experience and professionalism exceeded even my greatest expectations. In addition to excellent skills and knowledge of the law, he was genuinely dedicated to my case and always available to me. Regardless of the time, every phone call and email was promptly returned. With each new circumstance that arose, Mario gave practical advice and necessary information in the context of knowing my case. He guided me through the long legal process and really made things go easier than I had anticipated. He never lost his patience, despite my frequent inquiries. He provided a support system and served as a mentor, exceeding the scope of what lawyers today are expected to do. Simply put, lawyers like Mario Godoy are truly and exceptionally rare. I would never hesitate to use or refer his outstanding legal services in the future. I am so grateful to Mario and his staff for their prompt and much needed attention and for obtaining a successful outcome. Thank you, Mario Godoy!

I highly recommend Mario Godoy law firm. From the moment I spoke with Mario himself until my attorney, Luke Manno, successfully handled my case, I was treated with compassion, professionalism, and honesty. They explained everything to me and instantly put me at ease. I cannot praise this firm enough. If you need a lawyer, you need someone who will not only fight for you but someone who will treat you with respect and take the time to walk you through a difficult time in your life. This is the firm!

Mario and his team were incredibly professional and easy to work with. They were knowledgeable and explained everything to me, which put me at ease. They handled my case quickly and effectively. They treat their clients with respect and I really felt that they cared. I’m sure being a lawyer can cause one to become numb to people’s issues and problems, but Mario and team, specifically Luke Manno (our attorney) were compassionate and patient. At no point in time did I feel rushed or that they cared less than 100%. I would recommend this firm if you need someone in your corner who has your back and truly cares about you, not just their bottom line.

We had a very good experience here, everything we had questions about we got clear answers and all of our paperwork was explained well. Everyone is polite and they made us feel at home. After they had all of our paperwork they sent it out promptly. They were with us for every step of the way, and they knew exactly what to do when we had a hiccup during our application process. I definitely recommend this law office to anyone looking for help. I will use Mario Godoy Law Office again in the future.

Mario was my lawyer for a very high profile case. I was charged with a felony for threatening a public officials life over Facebook. I was facing 1 to 3 years in jail and a class 3 felony. After two years of going back-and-forth with the prosecutor he took my case to trial and we won. I was proven not guilty. Mario is the kind of lawyer that will not pressure you into doing anything you do not want to do. He will have your back and support you with whatever decision you make regarding your case. He fought hard for me and in the end we won.
