Dear Mr. Pelino,

We want to thank you and your wonderful staff for the tremendous job you did for our cousin M. When someone is taken in by the immigration authorities, it is an overwhelming feeling of despair for the person and his family. It is difficult and confusing trying to navigate through the legal process and we feel truly blessed to have found you to represent M.

His was truly a difficult case and your expertise, knowledge and caring is what won his case and has allowed him to begin his journey back into this society. Claudia, Miguel and you, were wonderful to work with. We appreciate your guiding us, as the family, on what items were needed for his defense and helping us to prepare for the process.

The many hours you spent with M, going over his defense and helping him prepare to speak on his behalf were invaluable. We saw a side of him that we thought he had long forgotten. You gave him the motivation and guidance that he needed.

He is a free man today because of you and we pray that he will never take for granted the gift of freedom to live in the United States. We truly appreciate all you did on his behalf.

We would highly recommend you and your services to those who need a strong and knowledgeable attorney to defend them before the courts.

"All human beings, whatever their cultural or historical background, suffer when they are intimidated, imprisoned or tortured...We must, therefore, insist on a global consensus, not only on the need to respect human rights worldwide, but also on the definition of these rights...for it is the inherent nature of all human beings to yearn for freedom, equality and dignity, and they have an equal right to achieve that."
