I was in a tough situation given my history and mistakes that I made in my past, which I truly regret. Patricia and her office were superb in helping me achieve my citizenship. She guided me through the entire process, provided the reassurance when I needed it most and fought hard when it was needed. Her experience, efficiency, knowledge commitment and immense capability got me through one of the toughest hurdles I have faced, and for that I am truly grateful. Thanks again!   ~Solomon Abila

There is no way to describe the amazing person and attorney that Patty is but, I will try my hardest to illustrate it. I met Patricia when I began my journey towards changing my immigration status. She has been the most amazing attorney I have ever met and has advocated fervently for my case. I could not have asked for a better person to find and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for help in immigration services. Patty is straightforward and kind and will always push the limits to get exactly what you deserve. She deeply cares for her clients and is willing to commit wholeheartedly to your case. She always made sure to put my mind at ease and kept me in the loop, never was she annoyed with any questions or concerns and honestly I rarely had doubts. Yesterday, she gave me the greatest news I could have received and I will forever be grateful for this amazing person. She deserves so much more than stars. Thank you for all your hard work and patience Patty. ~ Miriam F.

I would like to thank Patricia Corrales and all the staff at the firm for their professionalism. They were able to take mine and my wife's case when no one else wanted to take it. She was able to grant my wife's residency and my citizenship. I 100 percent recommend them. We are very happy and grateful for the opportunity she gave my family. SI SE PUEDE ~Audrey T.

Ms Corrales is a very knowledgable attorney. Knows her job perfectly. Very passionate about her clients- put energy, time and effort with heart. She is very dedicated. She has very good connections with a lot of her colleagues in the field. I would definitely recommend her to anyone. ~ Niloufar K.

I spent 8 years meeting with many lawyers who all said the same thing: “you case is too complicated and we can’t help you.” Just when I was losing all hope I was given Patricia’s name. From the moment I met with her I felt there was hope. She fought for me relentlessly for 3 years until last week when I was recognized as an American. She did what all the other lawyers couldn’t. Not only is she the best in her field, she is also a great woman who will pray with you and for you. If you feel like there is no hope, Patricia and her amazing team will find a way to fight for you. I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for her. Her team is amazing too. Deanna, Amy, Maria and Victor are so nice and helpful. Working with them was the best thing that happened to me. ~Francisca Orellana Polanka

After multiple failed attempts with other agencies/individuals, my mother finally came across Patricia to help her with her immigration issue. Patricia worked diligently with my mother and she is now a permanent resident. We appreciate all she did for my mother and how she presented her case. What felt impossible was possible with Patricia and her team. She is amazing. I have recommended her to my friends. We can't thank her enough! ~Delmy

I would like to start by saying thank you to The Law Offices of Patricia M. Corrales for all the help they have provided to me and my family throughout the past 8 years. When I first met Patricia Corrales I was confused by her hitting the ground running approach. Patricia humbly introduced herself and immediately began to offer advice related to my DACA case as the program had recently been launched. I felt confident following her advice and to my surprise my DACA was approved shortly after. Patricia Corrales is an extremely dedicated attorney, Ms. Corrales is very talented and very skilled. The Law Offices of Patricia M. Corrales have been involved in a very complicated case for one of my immediate relatives. This particular individual was detained before Ms. Corrales was able to address the case. We had visited several private and non-profit attorneys including several recommended by the consulate, they all yielded to the same result; nonsense! Patricia Corrales was able to get this individual out of detainment and continues to fight for their case. I have never seen an attorney brainstorm the way she does, Ms. Corrales will explore all possibilities and will be able to set realistic expectations. If Ms. Corrales is unable to help, she will be very honest and will not waste your time or money. This particular quality is very hard to find in anybody nowadays as most people running a business will try to generate revenue for set business. Ms. Corrales is not there to play games, she will simply review your situation, let you know the best course of action and get to work pending your approval. Ms. Corrales has a very impressive resume which comprises lots of experience. Ms. Corrales is currently helping my mother with a sensitive case and I am happy to announce that she was able to successfully apply and get my father approved for his permanent residence. Ms. Corrales was there every step of the way and we could not be happier with her results. You can see my father’s picture in her Instagram feed. I cannot stress enough the importance of hiring competent legal representation with criminal and especially immigration cases. I strongly urge you to schedule a consultation with The Law Offices of Patricia M. Corrales if you are in need of these services. Feel free to message me with any questions you may have. Once again, thank you and all the staff at the office for everything you do for the immigrant community. ~Manuel Sandoval

I'm forever grateful!

Very professional and knowledgeable law office

Ms. Corrales was very helpful. My case was so complicated but she found a way to dismiss it. Thanks.

Finding Patricia Corrales was a godsend. I happened to be in the area when I saw her office and after some research I decided to go in and talk with her. After many years and several different attorneys, I always left feeling defeated and disappointed but my meeting with Ms. Corrales went differently and I knew I had found an exceptional attorney. She was professional, knowledgeable, and reviewed all my paperwork. She not only has a thorough understanding of immigration law but of the immigration process as well. She carefully planned and explained every necessary step I would need to take for my case. I knew it would be a difficult process but her continued dedication paid off and we won! I would highly recommend her services to anyone. Thank you Patricia, Maria, and all the staff for your hard work and dedication. ~George A

Thank you Patty for given it your all to lower my charge. I didn't think it was going to be able to happen, But you and Maria prove me wrong. Your staff is also very polite. Thanx again may God Bless You. Saul Bonilla    

We received the best news from Patty today, all the charges were dropped!!! She really does make the impossible possible. Our case was extremely difficult but Patty was able to take the win. This lawyer will fight for you until the end and not only fight, but WIN! Meeting her has been a blessing, she truly is an Angel who genuinely wants to help. ~Blondie Diaz

"Patty goes above and beyond her job duties. We are truly blessed to have found such a great lawyer. She got my Mom's permanent residency within 6 months, and also my father had been deported twice, and she got him back legally. His case was more complicated — it took 1-1/2 yrs, but he's here legally — all because of this wonderful lawyer who I now consider my Angel on Earth. Look no further — you have found the right person to fight your immigration case. Truly exceptional. Thank you, Patty!"

"There are no words to describe how grateful we are with Patricia for helping us with our process. We want to give thanks to God for putting her in our path. She is very professional and knowledgeable, and we would strongly recommend her. God bless her always."

"She is one smart lawyer, very knowledgeable. She took her time with me and read all my paperwork. She also caught a mistake that the court's receptionist made on my court docket. I recommend her to everyone."

"I have to say that Patricia is the best immigration lawyer I know. She helped me with my deferred action status when I had a difficult case. She fought for me when immigration didn't want to give in, and we won. She is very professional and at the same time talks to you as a friend. She didn't make me feel like just a client, but as part of her family. I truly recommend her as your immigration or criminal defense lawyer — she is dedicated and will give her all to succeed."

"There are not enough thank you's to show our appreciation for you for helping my family and I unite once again. My mother's case was not easy which is why it truly means a lot that you made the process a little easier by guiding us through each step with patience and dedication. We never lost hope working with you."

"I am texting from Juarez, Mexico, where this morning my husband was granted his legal residency in the U.S. I will be forever grateful for Patricia Corrales and her utmost attention to detail. She guided us every step of the way with profound faith in our Lord. As we wait for the arrival of my husband's paper, we cannot help but give thanks to the best attorney anyone could hope for, and to the awesomeness of our Heavenly Father. We will continue to pray for those who are seeking legal status and will help in any way possible."

"Quality, honesty, and the best service I have ever experienced in this country. The dedication that she has put into my case, and the quick and solid execution was outstanding to me! Many thanks from me and my family!"

“Patty is a great attorney. If you need any information on immigration contact her! Thanks to her I got my deferred action application, and my sister’s, approved!”

“Your hard work and dedication to each individual case shows what a great lawyer you are. You know it has been a long struggle for my sister bouncing around with a lawyer — all he cared for was getting people in the door and not caring afterwards how long it took, but you care about every case. You are one legit lawyer. I thank God for bringing us to you!!”

“I had the pleasure of working with Patty for the last eight years. I consider her an astute and excellent attorney. I could ask her any legal question and she would get back to me with the correct answer and would do so quickly. She was considered among many agents a “go to” attorney for ICE. In addition, despite Patty’s commitments as an attorney, she made every effort to be present and available to assist with her children’s development and their school when her work obligations permitted. I recommend Patty’s integrity both on professional and personal levels.”

“I have known Patty for 4 years - I knew her when she was a prosecutor with ICE. Now she is in private practice. She helped me with my child support case and helped me get child support. She is honest and a very good attorney. She really knows how to argue. I recommend her if you need an attorney for immigration, criminal or child support issues.”
