Working with Ben and the Ruesch and Reeve firm has been nothing short of fantastic. He took my wife’s immigration case and was able to efficiently and effectively guide us through the whole process. He consistently responded to questions we had quickly. Ben provided above and beyond service, explaining everything as clearly as possible. Despite the process being stressful, Ben brought a can-do attitude and even humor to make the process less difficult.

I had the pleasure of working with Raymond and was truly amazed at how quickly he was able to resolve our legal matters, and beyond our expectations. He is the best attorney I have ever worked with. I would trust him completely with any future legal matter. The whole Team was great too! Thank you, Raymond.
