“Matt is extremely knowledgeable about every aspect of the immigration process, and takes the time to thoroughly and effectively communicate with his clients. My biggest regret—as someone who initially thought that he could handle the process on his own—was that I didn’t involve Matt in the process sooner.”

“His fees are very reasonable and certainly fair! My opinion is there are many lawyers who claim to be immigration specialists but their primary interest is hearing the ring of their cash register. Matt is different. Be reassured Matt Shaftel is one of the best and most reliable immigration attorneys in Colorado.”

- John Sichel

“Shaftel Law has unparalleled expertise on the legal side, but what separates their team is their ability to see each case as a combination of human and legal interests that must intersect for the best overall outcome. They may be legal experts, but their sensitivity to business and personal concerns is the reason we now use them for 100% of our immigration work.”
