    Michael Musa Obregon made case specific decisions that lead to my husband’s freedom who was detained by immigration. Michael is alert to matching his client’s with appropriate representation within his firm to give them the best chance at winning. As one of my husband’s advocates, I personally worked hand in hand with Michael and his team to reach numerous goals in our case by listening to his approach and trusting his defense strategies. It gave me a sense of power in a powerless position to actively participate in collecting evidence that would defend my husband’s rights. My husband is now home and working towards obtaining his green card because of a blend of knowledge and practice in criminal defense and immigration law from Michael and his firm.

    Musa Obregon’s office gets the job done. We had a defense case in Queens and specifically our attorney Jacqueline explained everything to us and handled it very well.
