North County Immigration always takes care of me. I was referred to them by a workshop hosted at Miracosta so I knew they were professional. Every time I renew my DACA I get nervous but after having a consultation I walk out of there relieved. I highly recommend them.

I would like to thank Ana, Mariela, and Michelle from North County Immigration; you guys are the best! From the moment I met with Ana, I knew she was the right attorney. My case worker Mariela and Michelle were also a great support in this process! Thank you very much!

Leonor R.

Although I went to law school many years ago it was very clear to me I needed EXPERT immigration legal help, so I asked my attorney to make some referrals; someone suggested another attorney that was very quick to conclude that my wife should simply pack up and fly back to her home country since no immigration officer would let her in to the US. My wife and I were more than dejected. So after pulling ourselves up from the floor I did my own search and found Ms Anna Hysell in Escondido and downtown San Diego. I was attracted to her by her many years at the Department of Justice refining the process of investigating marital fraud; both she and her boss literally wrote the book on this aspect of immigration law. The interview by Ms Hysell went well and my wife and I were more than surprised when Ms. Hysell said based upon her own experience prosecuting marital fraud for Immigration , she was confident that she would win my wife’s case.

Thus began our work with Ms. Hysell’s staff who made absolutely sure that we had more than enough proof to ensure that anyone looking at our applications would conclude my wife should be granted her ‘green card’. Her staff was very helpful and always on top of our case. They were in constant communication with us throughout the process.

And that was the case Ms. Hysell accompanied us to the hearing officer’s interview and after a very nervous time the hearing officer announced that our application had been approved. I gave the hearing officer a big hug.

So when you look for the absolute BEST immigration attorney in Southern California, call Ms. Anna Hysell.
