Neil Cohen


“Having attained Spanish nationality, I give Carbray International Law Firm the highest rating for legal services, legal knowledge, and personal attention to my case and my needs. They guided me, with patience and understanding, through the entire complex process of gaining my Spanish nationality as a US citizen of Sephardic lineage; a year earlier I had retained a previous Spanish law firm that claimed to know the process, only to have my application denied. Working with this law firm was an excellent experience. I highly recommend the immigration department of Carbray. “
