I will recommend Mr Matthew Udall, Attorney at Law to anybody and everybody who would want to file any form of immigration papers because he is so outstanding in the performance of this function. Since I started living in the U.S. I had made use of services of some attorneys, Mr Udall stands out because of the way he takes the services of his clients seriously. Mr Udall was recommended to me by an attorney I wanted to file my citizenship application but who declined my request because she said that distance from her office in San Jose to Sacramento is too far and will cost me much more. The attorney told me that she was going to use some criteria to find a good attorney for me and it turned out she got me an outstanding attorney in the person of Mr Matthew Udall. She had checked several attorneys in and around Sacramento against these criteria which she did not disclose to me. She however advised me to call Mr Udall whose telephone number she got from the internet search and gave to me.

My main aim of writing this letter of recommendation for Mr Udall is not jut that he helped me get my citizenship application approved but the way and manner he rendered his services to me. He picked every call personally, answered my questions promptly, allaying my fears in a way that gave me the confidence that he knew what he was doing. He carried me through the whole process, telling me the different stages of the application process right from the start to the Oath taking ceremony for the citizenship as is the case with mine.

I am so grateful to Mr Udall for the way he helped me and I do hereby urge him to continue the good work.

Nick N. The N-400 applicaton for naturalization was filed at the National Benefits Center, and the case was processed and the oath administered in Sacramento, CA.

[Note from Mr. Udall: It is always a pleasure to work with a local client, however please note that I work for clients all across the United States and my basic flat rate fees to prepare and file a case do not increase for clients located outside of the Sacramento area]

Clear, Detail Oriented, Engaged and Extremely Helpful: I recommend Mr. Udall highly to anyone who is considering applying for a K-1 visa and/or greencard. He has been extremely helpful to me and my wife, who immigrated from India this year. I am certain that by employing Mr. Udall, we saved at least several months in the K-1 process as well as lowering the frustration levels involved. Through each step of this journey, Mr. Udall has provided cler, detailed guidance. Engaging Mr. Udall has proven to be absolutely the right choice and well worth the investment.

A lawyer you'll swear by. Not at! Continued...

Immigration can be overwhelming for most couples since it involves two different countries, time, distance and unavoidable legalities. The legal part is absolutely necessary and therefore unavoidable. That said, the only other element within one's control is how one manages the 'overwhelming' part.

Fortunately, choosing Matthew as our immigration attorney was one of the best decisions Andy - my now Husband and author of the recommendation 'A lawyer you'll swear by. Not at!' (posted on this website and also on Avvo - dated October 25, 2015) - and I have ever made. In doing so we completely got rid of the 'overwhelming' part.

Our K-1 Fiance Visa (the first step in the immigration process that allowed me to travel to the United States with the intention of marrying Andy) was approved and issued in 5 months. Thanks to Matthew, this was smooth and hassle free. (At this point, reading Andy's comments may help you understand the process and the pivotal role Matthew played).

The immigration process however does not end with the K-1 Visa. Once I entered the U.S. and we got married, we continued to work with Matthew, this time, to apply for an 'Adjustment of Status'. Despite both of us now being in the same country and this phase of immigration being less complicated than the K-1 Visa phase, Matthew's attention to us as clients and detail to his work continued to be professional. This is truly noteworthy and we will always appreciate the personal touch in the way Matthew managed our case from his articulate emails, preparatory phone calls, timely execution/ filing of important paperwork to updates and much more that ensured we were always one step ahead of the game. After we got married and I applied for an 'Adjustment of Status' - it took about 3 months for my EAD work card and (conditional) Permanent Resident Status to come through. The officer at the Spousal interview (the final stage just before approval) complimented us on how thorough our paperwork had been filed and that right there is the result of working with a good attorney for immigration! Did I mention, at no point did we ever feel overwhelmed, confused or intimidated by what would normally, understandably be a very overwhelming situation. All thanks to Matthew.

That said, while Matthew will do more than his fair share to ensure success rates in all his cases, it is equally important for the client to make sure they do their part (furnish information timely and accurately, complete tasks and processes needed of them etc) for the equation to work well.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Matthew. He is one heck of an attorney who is passionate about his work, ensuring his clients will swear by and not at him!

Matthew is exceptionally knowledgeable and very timely. His advice made us feel confident, like we had an insider monitoring our case. I would hire him again. The value in this service greatly exceeds the cost.

A lawyer you’ll swear by. Not at!

That’s exactly how my fiancé and I would describe Mr. Udall in a sentence!

Filing the K-1 Fiancé Visa was something we did not want to take a risk with and hence retaining a lawyer of the highest caliber was of the utmost importance.

Matthew Udall, in managing our case throughout, has always been client focused and result driven. He is professional in his instructions and clear & concise in his advice. Despite having other clients and communicating with us across continents with different time zones, Matthew was always available when we needed him to clarify queries and next steps. We are grateful for his personal attention to our case.

Matthew is clearly passionate about his career and it shows in the way he respects the law to the letter, but also in the way he enjoys challenging situations and driving outcomes. What makes him uniquely different and therefore better, is his creative approach in combining a) knowledge of the law, b) experiences in past cases, and c) new techniques he discovers on the job, and applying these to current cases. He is therefore continuously improving his delivery timelines and performance because he is always in “learning mode.”

Filing the K-1 Visa is no easy task that happens overnight, but working with Matthew gave us the confidence to proceed. From introductory emails explaining the process, to preliminary collection of information to the actual filing of the case and the case moving from desk to desk across 2 countries, our K-1 Visa was approved and issued in 5 months. The process was smoother and quicker than expected and Matthew played a pivotal role through his proactive engagement, personal follow-ups & adherence to timelines. Matthew’s delivery and services well exceeded our expectations.

We would like to stress here that a client’s cooperation is also important in the success of the case, determining how fast or slow it may move. Matthew may do his best, bringing all he has to the table, but the client(s) must also be on the same page and put in equal if not more effort in driving results.

In the end what made all the difference in getting our job done, was a great working relationship with Matthew. Obtaining this Visa was a process we actually enjoyed and would highly recommend that if it is results you are looking for, Matthew Udall is unflinchingly, unapologetically your guy!!

I was so impressed with the services we received from Mr. Udall in our K-1 visa case and our adjustment of status case. He made the process very easy and addressed any issues that came up with promptness and was always available for answering any questions we had. I believe guidance in the cases assisted in the speediness in which we were approved. Thank you Mr. Udall for all you did to help us.

It was such a pleasure working with Mr. Udall. My fiancé and I were so nervous about the process, but Mr. Udall made us feel comfortable and prepared. We never felt alone through the process.

Mr. Udall’s professionalism from the very beginning made it easy to trust his work and advice. The K-1 process was much faster than we anticipated and without his advice, we would have been waiting a lot longer. Throughout the whole process, my fiancée and I continued to conduct research to see how long other couples had been waiting during this process and it seems like our case was faster than anyone we’ve seen. I attribute this to Mr. Udall’s attention to detail and his continued advice throughout the K-1 process. There was even a point where my fiancée and I were waiting for a letter from the U.S. Embassy in Manila to let her know that she was able to make her interview appointment. We were basically waiting for something that wasn’t going to come. It wasn’t long into our wait when Mr. Udall advised us to make the interview anyway. It is a good thing we had him, because the letter was lost in the mail and we never received it. If we had listened to every blog we read about this letter being a “must” before scheduling her interview, it would have taken us a lot longer to be together. We knew that with every step during this process, Mr. Udall had the knowledge and did the research necessary to move out case along in the most expedient way possible.

Anyone in this position knows that time is of the essence. Mr. Udall understands this as well and we can’t thank him enough.

As for Mirasol and I, we are still waiting for our marriage certificate to come in the mail so that we can send out the change of status documents. Thanks again for all of the help that you gave us.
Best wishes, Lawrence and Mirasol.

All I have are praises to Attorney Udall. He has helped us in getting my husband a greencard. He was so easy to work with and he was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. He answered all our questions and he was very helpful. We will be hiring him again when it's time for my spouse to remove the conditions from his greencard. It's such a pleasure working with Attorney Udall.

It was very difficult for me finding a lawyer that could work my fiancée immigration case while working overseas (Kandahar, Afghanistan) until a friend referred Mr. Udall. Mr. Udall’s diligence and best practices helped us get our visa approved within 6 months of submitting our petition. I’m very grateful to have Mr. Udall handle my immigration case.

As you know, my good friends referred me to you and I have no regrets in taking their advice. Thanks to your professional assistance, my fiancée (now wife) Kelly’s visa was approved without a glitch. Your work was thorough and regimented, making it possible even for a person like myself whose organizational skills are not his strong point, to flawlessly complete the rigors of the fiancée visa process. I have since and will continue to refer others who seek similar services to you. Thank you again!

First of all Mr. Udall is a very honest trustworthy attorney which both of us value mostly if we need any kind of attorney in our life. Secondly Mr. Udall is pretty calming down attorney with a clear mind and responsible attitude towards us, which help keeping our case in a very well organized pace of processing a lot, also that brings us a lot of peace as well. Thirdly, Mr. Udall respects and values his customers like us in a very positive way even though his service charge is not high. He never disappoints us in communicating, information updating, documents preparing. We can tell through his work that Mr. Udall is a very detail oriented experienced confident friendly person which a professional attorney should have. Last not least, Mr. Udall charges his services very fairly and more than that even though he makes money by being an attorney, we can tell by his work that Mr. Udall has a good heart to care about people rather than money. We do like him a lot!

Professional, responsible and reliable are the key traits of Mr. Udall’s K-1 Visa service. We regarded these factors when looking for an immigration attorney and Mr. Udall's fits those needs extremely well. He was there during the entire process of Beifei’s legal stages of receiving her green card. To save time, energy and stress, it was very important to have a professional attorney in this complex process, and Mr. Udall was the right person to get the job done. We are very pleased to have found Mr. Udall and have him for our attorney, Through his service, she received her green card without any problems. Thanks to Mr. Udall, it was a very smooth, painless process.

Gopal and I cannot thank Mr. Udall enough for his professionalism, attention to detail, meticulous paperwork and value for money for smoothing one of the most grueling challenges of our lives. Our immigration process was in great hands right from the start! Mr. Udall was never hesitant in calling up the authorities or us whenever there was some clarification required. He was always available to answer our queries by email or phone. He took great care in preparing us for our interviews. He is obviously a man of integrity, someone who loves his job and we could not have asked for a better friend in need.

Mr. Udall is a very committed lawyer. He is exceptionally well organized; detail oriented and works hard for his clients. I have always felt very secure in having him handle my immigration. He personally makes sure all the entries are accurate, will cross check constantly and his advice is always sound. His fees are extremely reasonable considering the amount of time he puts in, he is very approachable, will always return calls / e-mails when he says he will. A great guy to have on your side when you are battling with the USCIS!

Coming straight from the heart, Mr. Udall is an exceptional lawyer and person. I got the privilege to know him as a person and most people never get this chance when they hire a lawyer. There is no way I could have gotten my wife here without Mr. Udall's help. We even had a problem in the middle of the process because the paperwork got lost in the mail in China. Well I’m happy to say that I called Mr. Udall and he had  to me the whole entire paperwork I needed within a few days. I can't say enough about this man!! He's a great lawyer, a wonderful man and a good person. Keep up the great work "Bubba Udall".

I retained Matthew Udall to help me with the fiancée visa application process after being referred by a friend who had also used his services. Although the amount of documentation and paperwork involved was daunting at times, his knowledge of immigration law as well as his guidance made the entire process much more manageable. Mr. Udall is very detail oriented and was very patient and responsive to all my questions. I will definitely recommend him to others who are in need of an experienced immigration attorney!

Although I am a California lawyer with many years of courtroom experience, I knew very little about immigration law before retaining the services of Attorney Matthew Udall. I had previously worked with another immigration lawyer, with whom I was not satisfied, and have consulted with several others. All immigration lawyers are not the same. Many promise what they cannot deliver. I doubt you can find another who knows immigration law better than Matthew Udall; or is easier to work with. He explains, in writing, in clear, understandable, simple language, the process, and what to expect. His fees are fair and reasonable. My wife and I recommend him highly, without hesitation or qualification.

Matt did a great job for us. It was very valuable to have an attorney representing us rather than filing ourselves. On the K-1 visa we were approved in record time, while people who had filed themselves had their petitions languish. He was very friendly and efficient.

Dear Mr. Udall, Diana and I would like to thank you very much in helping us obtain Diana's greencard. Your amazing knowledge of what was required for her to obtain the card and your guidance throughout the entire process has been nothing but superb. If we had to do it all over again, you can bet you would be our only choice as our immigration attorney. Keep up the excellent work!

I've reported on the progress of bringing my wife from the Philippines in my column (X) in the (X) newspaper (MDUdall - I've omitted the column name and newspaper name due to privacy concerns). It has brought several e-mails and calls during the I-129f process wondering how I got her home in 5 months. I said I hired an immigration attorney. People in the local PHIL-AM community told me not to waste the money on the greencard process because "none of these attorneys around here know anything about immigration". I said my guy is in Pasadena and the response was, "Oh…. California!". One of Janeth's friends has been here two years and is still unable to work. You have to figure that if the attorney saves only two months, his fee is paid for by having that second income coming into the home. I love what Janeth has done to improve the home, but she also has job skills and a desire to not only contribute, but to send money home. Time is money.

The assurance of a completed application was very important to us as we did not want any hold-ups in an already slow and tedious process… having you Matthew, assisting us in preparation, answering our many questions, your attention to detail, and personal guidance in our application made the filing quick and efficient. When visiting Vancouver for my interview with the Consulate, I was told by the clerk that I shouldn't have any problems with my Fiancée Visa as my package was "so complete" with no questions left unanswered.

That is why it was without hesitation that we again asked you to represent us in the next stages - Application for Permanent Resident Status, Advance Parole and Temporary Work Permit. Again you took away the stress of it all. Thank you so much. We would strongly recommend you to any individual who is looking for a true professional who knows the immigration system and will guide them through it - from beginning to end!
