I've had the privilege of working with Mr. McLean on my Immigration case. Mr. McLean is extremely efficient, organized, and knowledgeable. My case was to take approximately 6 months, but it was all complete in almost exactly 3 months. I would recommend Mr. McLean to anyone who desires a professional, hardworking lawyer who treats each case and client as a priority.
Mr. McLean gave me great legal advice and explain in great detail on how to go on with my Immigration case. I never had to call him for an update on my case, he would always call me and kept me well informed. He personally handled my case and was always happy to help and answer all my questions. By far BEST lawyer I found! I would recommend him to anyone its difficult to find good lawyers now a days.
Mr. McLean has given me legal advice and clarifications on numerous occasions. I trust him implicitly, and look forward to continuing a professional relationship with him.
This is an excelent attorney!!! Mr. McLean is very honest, trustworthy and hardworking. Finding an attorney in Chicago with all these qualities sometimes feels impossible! I found Mr. McLean and called to schedule an appointment. I went in for my free consultation and I felt very comfortable in his office. He is very knowledgeable with immigration matters and his prices are affordable! He studied my case and told me it was a bit complicated, due to my previous attorney's awful work! He took my case and said he would do everything he could to win it. He did an EXCELENT job and after all the hard work my Adjustment of Status was approved and I am just waiting on my green card to arrive. My husband and I are very thankful and we highly recommend you hire him!!
My husband and I worked with William to handle our case and the experience was very positive. I appreciated his straightforwardness, attention to detail, and thoroughness. Throughout the process, we had many questions which William addressed in a professional and knowledgeable manner. He helped us navigate through a process that at first had seemed overwhelming to us. Looking back on the whole process, we could not be happier with the service we received and how smooth everything went throughout each stage. I highly recommend his services for those dealing with immigration issues.
This year changed everything for my brother sister and me. We started the processes of Legalization . We hired William, because of his willingness to work with cost and Payment. He was great at answering questions and most importantly he gave us peace of mind.
We are done with the first step and will see what the future holds.
We are thankful to him and we consider him a great friend.
Anyone who has tried to make sense of the imagration jungle of paperwork and forms will know what i mean when i say william McLean was my light at the end of the tunnel. Until I contacted william i was lost and confused. He helpped me make sence of the process and did the paperwork I needed so my wife could come here and be with me her husband. William is now helping me to get our daughter here to her new home. William is very professional and has kept me up to date every step of the way.
A very good lawyer over all who kept me informed from the beginning to the end.
I have been a United States citizen my whole life but my parents have always lived in Mexico. I knew as soon as I turned 21, I would be able to petition for my parents’ permanent residence. Mr. McLean was able to advise me professionally and I decided to hire him for the case. My parents were able to get their immigrant visas after an interview in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico and we are now reunited. I highly recommend Mr. McLean for all of your legal needs as an immigrant or family member of an immigrant.
I am a professional cricket player. I consulted with Mr. McLean about my immigration options because of my international recognition in my sport. There is a visa that would let me work in the United States for up to 10 years because of my athletic ability, and Mr. McLean encouraged me to apply for it. Mr. McLean was able to quickly change my status in the United States from student to professional athlete. If you want to work in the United States as an immigrant, you should call Mr. McLean!
I am a member of the United States Marines. The government terminated my permanent residence while I was deployed in Afghanistan fighting the War on Terror because I missed an important filing date. Mr. McLean told my parents that he would likely be able to get my permanent residence reinstated, and that there was a special law for me to become a United States citizen early because of my military service. Mr. McLean got my permanent residence reinstated and shortly later I became a United States citizen. Mr. McLean then applied for and won perman
Time was running out to make an important filing with the government that was necessary to keep my permanent residence. Mr. McLean promised me that he could get my application in on time and he followed through. I also hired Mr. McLean to represent me in person when the government called me to an interview at their downtown Chicago headquarters. I was so nervous, but Mr. McLean made me feel relaxed and like I was in control, rather than the officer who interviewed me. My confidence came through, and I was able to win my case. Mr. McLean is a great lawyer.
Mr. McLean took my case at a time when my application for permanent residence was at the United States consulate in Pakistan. The government already interviewed me, and the rest of my family had already immigrated to the United States without me. I was stuck in Pakistan for no reason and the government would not process my case. After waiting for nearly two years, my family and I decided to hire a lawyer. I am so happy we hired Mr. McLean, because he was able to shake my case loose and get me another interview at the United States consulate. I was in the United States as a permanent resident less than three months after we hired Mr. McLean, and I will use him for all of my further immigration needs.
I hired Mr. McLean to represent me in-person at O’Hare airport as I returned from an extended stay in Europe. Because I was out of the United States for so long, I was worried that the government would not allow me to reenter. Mr. McLean prepared a packet of documents for me to use to prove that I had not surrendered my United States permanent residence. Upon my return, the customs officer called a secondary officer to bring me in to an isolated room for further inspection. As soon as the secondary officer saw the documents I had ready to prove my case, I was allowed to pass on through customs, where Mr. McLean was waiting for me. Since I returned to the United States, Mr. McLean was able to successfully petition for my wife’s permanent residence, and we are reunited and preparing to apply for citizenship.
My husband’s immigration case required serious work because of his many years of living unlawfully in the United States. Mr. McLean assured us that the case could be won, but that we would need a waiver of my husband’s unlawful presence, and that my husband would have to take a short trip to Mexico. We were very nervous, especially when we had to go to Mexico for the interview at the United States consulate. But, my husband won his case and is now back in the United States as a permanent resident. There is no way we could have experienced such success without Mr. McLean’s help.
A client of mine recently found himself in Jamaica with an expired green card. This is trouble, because if you’re a permanent resident of the United States and you’re out of the country when your green card expires, you’ll have to get a transportation letter to board the plane back to the United States. That’s right- no airline will let you even board a flight with a final destination in the United States without a valid green card...
