A Word From Michele Alcalde as you consider scheduling a consultation for legal services:
“I have built a reputation for the past 18 years of being knowledgeable, compassionate, and creatively strategizing on the matters I defend. I am well known in the Immigration community and the communities I service for my honest assessments of immigration, criminal and family law cases. I know the despair family members face when they feel there is no one to turn to after Immigration and Customs Enforcement or a local law enforcement agency detains their family member. I also understand the frustrations that many face in dealing with the overall legal system, whether in a criminal, municipal court or family setting. I am willing to listen carefully to all factual aspects of the case and through my intuitiveness decide what the best, next approach is to the matter at hand. I have taken difficult matters that seemed hopeless and found that through my diligent work and aggressive lawyering, my clients were able to seek the relief they needed. If it is at all possible, I will provide you with an option to defend your case. However, if your case has absolutely no legal remedy, I will say so. That is my word.”
