“My civil rights were violated in 2017. I filed a lawsuit on my own. I had a difficult time researching my own evidence in the discovery phase. The Defendants in the case deflected and avoided my requests in any way they could. When Andréa Vieira took my case, she was a fierce advocate who quickly gained leverage with her abilities to discover the facts that the Defendants were withholding. She also had a way of communicating to the court and the other litigants which could foresee the best options. She is great at playing chess.

Andréa is ethical and reasonable in her communication with me as her client. She always put my best interests first. She gave me my options and told me she supported my decision. This is different than other attorneys because usually an attorney will use condescending tones due to the client’s lack of knowledge in the legal system. This makes the client feel like they must solely rely on the attorney’s advice, or they will lose. This makes the client feel powerless. This is just a manipulation tactic used by many attorneys. Andréa never did this once! She always assured me that she worked for me, and she was content with my decisions in the litigation.

Andréa ultimately negotiated a substantial settlement amount, which was equitable, to avoid an unpredictable trial. She achieved this with her perseverance and inability to give up when searching for the facts. The Defendants placed many obstacles in her way, but she had a way of navigating the litigation process where she obtained every fact hidden to preserve my civil rights.

I am very thankful that Andréa represented me in my case. I would never use any other attorney in any civil case. I recommend you retain her if you believe your civil rights have been violated, or you have any other litigation to resolve.”

💯 Recommend ! We started the process with a different lawyer and we almost made a huge mistake because of him. We met with Yvette & she jumped on the process right away & helped us avoid so many headaches. She was very fast and has great attention to detail which is important when dealing with this type of stuff. She later helped my friend then my in-laws! So hard to trust when it comes to this stuff . My family is so glad we met her!

I couldn't be more thankful for Ivette. She's managed to help three of my relatives and a couple of friends in their process of receiving their green cards. She's a very straight-forward person, which is hard to find these days with this type of work. Without a doubt I would recommend her for any immigration service or even questions that you have
