What Our Client Say About Us

Did a consultation with North County Immigration about getting my citizenship. Ended up using their Review Service which was a great alternative. I prepared my application myself and then she reviewed my application to make sure it was correct and gave great suggestions of what documents I should include. Definitely recommend their office. They are reasonable and don’t rip you off.

If you are looking for a professional and brilliant immigration attorney- look no further! My boyfriend and I were working on his US citizenship application and ran into some questions and concerns. We were so happy to find Anna Hysell to help us with these difficulties. With a deadline, quarantines in place and COVID-19 risks present, we were able to virtually consult with Anna. Her guidance, expertise and attention to details helped us tremendously. After consulting with her we realized that we had not filled out nor answered certain portions of the application correctly. I’m sure now it would have been rejected if she had not guided us through the changes we needed to make. Weather it’s reviewing documents or complicated issues, I would strongly recommend North County Immigration. Estoy muy agradecida con Anna por su profesionalismo y por su ayuda en mi caso.

Enid S.

My mother was a permanent resident for more than 15 years and was always nervous to begin the process to become a citizen. After hearing about North County Immigration from a coworker I made an appointment for my mother and me to speak with Anna. It took some convincing but finally my mother agreed and she was sure glad she did. Anna was so nice and full of information, my mother was very excited and eager to begin working with her. Thanks to Anna and her office my mother now walks around letting everyone know she is a proud American!! I have referred many family members and friends knowing that they will not be let down.
