    He knows what he is to do on complex cases of immigration. He is honest, sincere and straightforward. He will tell you as it is including all the possibilities, negative or positive. With Shanfield you get to know what you are getting into. My case was for my husband's permanent residence, he could have been deported but it was approved within 12 months. Amazing!! Great job.

    Daniel was a total lifesaver on my citizenship application! I thought my
    case was easy, but Daniel warned me that there could be issues at my INS
    interview because of my past divorce and custody arrangement. Daniel knew
    what documents I needed to take to the INS interview, even though the
    application instructions didn't ask for it. Even before the interview,
    Daniel prepared me for what questions to expect and how the officers handle
    these interviews. Thanks to Daniel, my interview at INS was tot

    Daniel was the first lawyer (after retaining 3 before him) who believed me and was optimistic about winning. He was upfront that it would be hard. But something made me believe in him. He told me about his background as how he worked for a refugee service in central asia. It was obvious, he was not doing this because it was his job but he really believed in it. Our case took longer but Daniel did not charge extra. Needless to say we won in the end, I have recommended him to my family & friends.
