Client History

Approximately 90% of his clients have a family member in the Chicago area or the State of Illinois. They depend upon him for his candid advice on visa processing and the role of an attorney in the process. Persistent attorneys often spend unreasonable amounts of time with the adjudications branch at the district and regional level.  The Chicago District Office of the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Service is a large office that is often administratively challenged in its effort to determine who merits permanent resident status. Often, proper levels of funding are not spent to adequately train and staff the Chicago office. Mr. Dixler has also worked with and traveled to the border, U.S.C.I.S. district offices and various immigration courts across the nation to represent his clients.
