Analog Creative Inc.

The team at Ortega-Medina & Associates provided an invaluable and professional service during the challenging process of establishing a company in the USA. Their proactive approach to explaining the complex procedure and timely responses to queries alleviated all our concerns. Further, their meticulous attention to detail assured a smooth and successful interview at the US Embassy in London and prompt delivery of E2 visas.  In my opinion, when dealing with US immigration it is imperative that you have an expert legal team with impeccable credentials behind you, that is precisely what is offered at Ortega-Medina & Associates and I would strongly suggest that you take it.

Colingo

We worked with Orlando and his team in securing two H-1Bs and two B1 in lieu of H1 visas and they provided excellent service and delivered fantastic results. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their services to anyone needing immigration assistance from a top-notch firm.

Fight My Monster

Fight My Monster is one of the world's fastest growing boy's game passing 2m user accounts in 2012 after a 2011 launch. While we were founded in the UK, we developed substantial US operations from an office in San Mateo, California. As CEO I wanted to relocate to the San Mateo office in order to be nearer to our main target market and potential partners. Ortega-Medina very efficiently obtained an L1-A visa package for me and my family and we are now talking to them about further executive relocations. I would thoroughly recommend them!

Pawsitive Tails

Ortega-Medina & Associates were efficient, clear and effective! Orlando, William and Katie, along with their associate Jason Erlich, worked with me to achieve my end goal of living and working in San Francisco. They guided me through the minefield of American rules and regulations in order to set my business up in such a way that we fulfill all the State and Federal requirements and that we operate in a clear and organised manner. They worked with me when plans changed and when there were obstacles, difficulties and misunderstandings. The end result is that I have, a visa which enables me to live and work here in San Francisco and a successful, well run business.

Pro-Dig, LLC

I have had the pleasure to work with Orlando and his team during both my successful L1 and EB1 Green Card applications. Orlando’s knowledge and experience has undoubtedly been a prime reason for the subsequent approval of our applications. Orlando has a very capable and customer friendly team who walk you step by step through the minefield that is the US immigrant visa application process. Having been through this process I would advise that it is imperative to have a knowledgeable and ethical immigration attorney assist you in your application, You cannot underestimate  how valuable a resource they are. What I like about Orlando is that he is not going to sweet talk you just to gain your business. He is going to look at the potential of your application and give you relevant answers in black and white so you know where you stand from day one.  All the relevant documentation was carefully and meticulously laid out. At all times our concerns were immediately addressed. Orlando will even call you to provide explanations and reassurance should the need arise.  I would categorically recommend the services of Orlando and his team for any US immigration matter.

I cannot speak highly enough about Orlando and his team (Nallely, Katie and William) in supporting me to obtain my E2 business visa for the USA.  American law is a minefield, Orlando and his team had a prefessional and process driven approach to navigate through what steps should be taken and why.  Their expertise, precise eye for detail; due diligence; systematic approach; in-depth knowledge; understanding and insight into the subject matter of immigration law, was in my experience what made them untouchable.  The quality of their work is nothing short of outstanding.  I highly recommend Orlando and Ortega-Medina & Associates, and will be retaining their services for all future immigration work.  Thank you Team Orlando -- we 'Aced' it.

Real Asset Management plc

I know from personal experience that applying for US visas for our staff without professional help is a minefield which, if conducted badly could easily result in the rejection of an application, with severe repercussions to our business.

By utilising the professional organization and experience of Ortega-Medina, the dangers of failure are minimized through thorough and proactive procedures run by lawyers who take trouble to understand our business.

Sapphire Systems

The team at Ortega-Medina & Associates have smoothed out the process of UK to US staff transfers for us. We first used them in 2010 after a less than perfect experience with a different law firm. The OMA approach was a breath of fresh air; approachable, friendly, honest and most importantly, effective. Since then we have worked with Orlando and his colleagues on a number of visa applications, including L1s, H1Bs, and E2 employee visa application, and will continue to do so. As a company headquartered in the UK a bonus for us has been OMA’s location in London. Working in the same time zone as our advisors has been of real benefit and the fact that they just are a quick tube ride or short courier trip away is a definite plus.

Ortega Medina assisted us through our successful application for a B1 in lieu of H1. They were very knowledgeable of the process and we would contract them again.
