Michael Gurfinkel – Immigration’s Patron Saint Of Valentine’s Day
Posted by: INSZoom | Date: February 14, 2013
Coming to the U.S. can be daunting. It can be even harder when you enter undocumented or get caught up in immigration red tape. Getting out of those types of difficult situations can become a near impossible goal.
One man, Rick, ran into just that problem. Rick’s wife, Maria, had been detained by immigration authorities and had been in detention for a number of days. He became extremely worried.
Rick checked with several immigration attorneys. They reviewed his wife’s case. Every attorney said the same thing: the case looked extremely complicated. Getting Maria released would be very difficult.
And then Rick met Michael Gurfinkel, lead attorney at the Law Offices of Michael J. Gurfinkel, Inc. (www.gurfinkel.com), and a long-time client of INSZoom. Michael too felt that the case was complicated, but he said something the other attorneys didn’t. He said he felt he could get Maria released. He gave Rick hope. Further, Michael promised Rick that he would do his best so that he and his wife would be together on Valentine’s Day.
Guess what happened? Michael made it happen. Rick and Maria were reunited in the U.S. on Valentine’s Day. Maria got her green card through Gurfinkel’s efforts, and is now a US citizen. It was a true immigration love story.
I’m so proud of Michael and so happy to be able to call him and other excellent attorneys like him my clients. It’s love stories like this one that make me feel good this Valentine’s Day.
