We went to Julissa to apply for our Residency Visa and we are very happy that we did. She explained the process and timeline to us and ensured that we had all of our documents prepared and ready for submittal to avoid any delays. She also kept us informed throughout the process so that we never had to wonder about the status of our application or if it was being processed. When our temporary visa was approved, Julissa provided an agent at the Immigration office who handled everything for us including signing us in and waiting in line so we didn´t have to. He escorted us to the various stations required (photos, copies, etc.) The process at the Immigration office was also surprisingly quick. We were only there for about and hour. Being foreigners and not knowing the system, this would have been a major challenge for us if we had to go it alone. I definitely don´t think we would have gotten out of there as quickly without the assistance of the agent.I highly recommend Julissa if you need to apply for your residency Visa.
Very competent lawyer. I had an easy, smooth and quick process with her help.

I recommend Dr. Julissa Ortega, and I appreciate her help with the procedures before the immigration office of Panama.Since, he helped me to manage the pertinent procedures to obtain the residence permit for retired people and/or pensioners before the migration office. Which ended with success and very good and diligent treatment by her office.
Dr. Julissa is a great professional, you have provided us with an excellent permanent residence service in all aspects to our family group. We are very grateful.
