Nick is the best lawyer in Seattle, and that is the truth. We had an immigration issue and he has been our lawyer for over 10 years. He always answered my calls, always gave information when we needed it, and he has worked the case to allow my husband to rightly stay in this country. No doubt about it, he is the Attorney of the year:-)!!!

Ms. Carney and her firm are simply the best. They saved my family member from being deported and was able to get the best result possible in her case. Ms. Carney is smart, efficient, effective, hard working, dedicated, and compassionate. Their prices are also very reasonable and they keep you informed each step of the way.

Nicholas Marchi is one of a kind. Other lawyers told me that my case was impossible. In fact, his associate attorney, an Indian attorney called Kripa, was ready to send me to the slaughter house. Nicholas believed in me and fought for my case. and guess what, I won! I owe it all to Nicholas. I owe him him my life and my family's life.


I had been fighting my immigration case for the last ten years. It was a blessing to have found Mr. Marchi as an immigration attorney two years in January of 2009 when I was taking into an immigration detention facility. From the moment Mr. Marchi took over everything changed. I got out of the immigration detention center.He discovered the mistakes previous lawyers had done in the past and immigration's mistakes and he appealed them. My case in a way before had no hopes also because my criminal history. Me and my family thought I would go back to a country that I did not belong. Mr. Marchi changed that and he told me that he would fight till the end for me. As far as the price he worked with us to make payments and that helped a lot because not every lawyer would do such a thing. To make a long story short he got me approved my my Green Card, permanent Green Card which I will have in 30 days. He is an excellent lawyer and processional in all aspects and I would recommend him to anyone. If he could turn my case around that it was really hard and complicated, I can't imagine what he would do for you.


I have recommended Mr. Marchi to 2 other people and they have gotten good results and the reason that I recommend is because I have hired 2 other attorneys and both have taken my money not Mr.Marchi he straight out told if he could not help me he would let me know before we sign a contract. Mr. Marchi is a good attorney.
