On Saturday, August 24th Allen Stoner and his Office Manager (his wife, Cookie) had the honor of attending a U.S. Citizenship Ceremony for one of Allen’s clients. Allen and Cookie were overcome with pride, love, and emotion. In 1964 Luis Perez was 19 years old when he fled communist Cuba. He never saw his parents again. Like many people with dreams, he came to America. In 2007 he became Allen’s client at Allen Stoner, Attorney at Law. Over the past 12 years, he has become our friend. On Saturday, he became an American citizen. Allen and Cookie watched him proudly take his oath with other new citizens (from diverse backgrounds), accept his certificate, and proudly stand as an American. Watching this ceremony solidified that we chose the right path when Allen added immigration to his list of legal services. As human beings and as Americans, it is so easy to forget how fortunate we are to be born in America and have something so many desire. We have had many clients with their immigration needs, but we don’t get to attend their final ceremony. The practice of immigration law is labor-intensive, takes long hours, and lots of handholding for our clients over the long process. Taking the time to travel to this ceremony was so rewarding for our team at Allen Stoner Law. Allen, his assistant, Heather, and Cookie are grateful that we get to do what we do. Help our clients reach their dreams. We also want to thank the USCIS for hosting a beautiful ceremony. God Bless America!
