Ed B.

In my immigration practice I need to work on a daily basis with first-rate interpreters and translators. Since 2010 I have had the pleasure of working with Amorim Language Services. Their work is outstanding! Their translations and interpretations are always very accurate, and their customer service is second to none! I highly recommend this translation and interpretation firm!
