“Mr Labi Akere is a great lawyer and has great experience. I would advice anyone who retains his services to spend more time listening and acting on what he advises than talking and wanting things to work your way. I had a very complicated case and he gave me a ten step process and needed plenty of paperwork, which I took time to get together and after he approved the documents he pretty much guaranteed my US residency and needless to say he exceeded my expectations. I received my residency 4 years ago. He has been fair, firm and honest. He will never bight his tongue and will never sugar coat anything, all he does is produce results. I know of over 20 cases that he has successfully petitioned and passed and I will not hesitate to recommend him to anyone. He is most certainly the most deserving 5 Star I've ever given. Keep up the great work MR AKERE and may God keep blessing you.”
