Lysandra listened to my side of the story and was very honest with her feedback and provided me with several options on how to move forward. I immediately hired her for what I thought was a fair fee for her services. I followed her advice on how to fight the charge and she was eventually able to get the prosecutor to recommend a nolle prosequi to the judge which was the best result we could have asked for. Lysandra was quick to follow up on any questions that I had throughout the process and even went to the court a few weeks after my hearing so that she could mail my the original copy of my disposition.

Criminal Defense Client


My husband was in deportation and it was the most stressful period of my life. I will never forget how painful it was to live through that. It was a complicated case and it was physically and mentally draining. She was a ray of light and a game changer. What sets her apart is that she's not only extremely knowledgeable in immigration law, but she's also the type of person who pays attention to the details. She doesn't give up and she finds a way even when things seem impossible. She's not the type to sit back and wait. She's energetic and persistent. Although she had many cases on her hands, she made me feel like her only client. My husband received his permanent residence and we are extremely grateful to her.

Immigration Client


During our consultation, he began to identify possible alternative routes and contingency plans if things didn't go as expected. I was impressed by his knowledge, but more so by his affability, sincerity, level of interest and ability to relate to my situation. I was confident, not that I would be successful in my petition, but that he and his team would do their absolute best representing my case - which they did! Eight months later, my case has been successfully resolved. I was so moved when he and his entire team warmly congratulated me on our success when last I visited their office. Henson Kammerman and Pachuta are also affordable and willing to work with their clients' budgets. Great lawyers with a genuine human touch. I plan to use them if/when I have future legal matters..
