Client Testimonials

Thank you for your meticulous work and for being so efficient… It is much appreciated.

Thank you. Once again, we are so pleased that we worked with your firm. We will highly recommend to other scholars who need the same assistance and we will also let the office know that you should be at the top of the list! I will scan and send cards later today.

On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to thank you for all the wonderful work you have done for my immigration application. I really appreciate your dedication, efficiency and utmost attention to detail to make sure everything is perfect. Starting from my H-1B transfer application to the employment based green card, all of you guys at Costa & Riccio have been true professionals, excellent and outstanding in your work. Thank you and my best wishes for everyone at Costa & Riccio, LLP.

We have great respect for our attorneys and the legal department members at the Law offices of Richard M Costa for their promptness and ever helping attitude to their clients.

I worked with Ellen on my J1 case, where DOS found me a subject to 2-year home residency restriction based on US government funding for my Ph.D. Four out of five 5-star rated J-1 attorneys I consulted with before told me that this case is extremely hard to resolve because of the government funding, and suggested me going straight to waiver (which is not likely to get in this case either), or to fulfill the requirement and go to my home country for two years. Ellen did the miracle! I can’t even describe how much we are thankful to her professionalism and experience based intuition. She wrote a detailed letter to the DOS, where she explained why they made a wrong initial decision regarding my 212e, and helped me get all the supporting evidences from my school and associated government agency. I should say that it is very rare case when DOS change their decision, and Ellen made them do it. Thank you so much Ellen! I highly recommend you as a 5-star professional to anybody who have J-1 related issues.
 

Thank you so much for all your help during this process. You were absolutely amazing — so knowledgeable and competent and always responsive. In some ways the green card application is a scary process because so much of one’s future depends on it, but having you and Mr. Costa handle it completely put me at ease.

My heartfelt thanks to both of you!

It was a real pleasure working with you and all your team. From the first H1B application ~5 years back to this day it was simple and smooth process. It is easy to say, it is just business, you provide services and I consume them. But in so many cases one pays money and does not get what s/he expects, it was not the case with you. I got exactly what I expected, everyone was nice and useful.

We are truly grateful for the big help in getting this done successfully in a short period of time. Thanks again. There are couple of post-docs in my lab/neighbouring lab who are thinking about preparing their green card application and I have strongly recommended your office for their filing. Great help and service!

I would like to say big THANK YOU for both of you, for handling my application, for being very very patient with my questions (even with he repeated one), and always explained me everything.

“Yesterday I received the confirmation from USCIS that my I-485 is approved. Thank you and everyone in your team for helping me all through the green card process. Always promptly answering my question and providing correct legal guidance.

I will always recommend your law firm to my friends and my employers.”

The hard copy of my visa application that you prepared was delivered to our home by FedEx two days ago. I just wanted to thank you again for all the work that you have done on this: seeing it on paper makes it even clearer how much work it involved.

It’s a good feeling to know that there is someone trustworthy, competent, supportive and accommodating to handle these types of issues…. We could never have gotten [ ] and his family here without your help and I will certainly turn to you for help again should we come up with another requirement for a visa.

Just wanted to thank you both very much for all you help and support towards my case. It is very much appreciated. Your prompt response emails and just getting information to me. Your efficiency is impeccable. I am very happy I chose this firm to handle my case.

“I just want to thank you and the firm for the excellent immigration services in the past 8 years.  All the filings were professionally done.  I always got quick response to my questions.  It has been a long journey but I finally make it.  I am already planning my next vacation.”

I can’t thank you enough for your patience and help, I’m very grateful for your hard work and commitment.

I am very pleased to inform you that our green cards arrived by mail yesterday. I am very grateful to you folks, for all your efforts and attention to detail throughout the process. Although it was a long process, I am pleased that there were no delays/slipups on our side and it was just a question of time before the process got completed.

I sure am glad to have you on our team. Your attention to detail and understanding of these immigration laws are very much needed. It’s obviously very critical and much of this is beyond our limited understanding and application.

It has been a long and tough journey, thank you both very much for helping us getting through it. I am deeply impressed by your professionalism and meticulousness in preparation. We are blessed to have you help our cases. I am saying this from the bottom of my heart because I had bad experience with our previous attorney in the west coast before. I told everybody that you are so much better, there is no comparison.

On behalf of my wife and myself, I would like to thank everyone who worked on my cases. I deeply appreciate your professionalism and care. We are both very happy at the way our situation was taken care of. Thanks to wonderful job of many people, including people in my company, and some degree of luck, we can realize American dream (sorry if this sounds like political language, this is actually true).

I am so happy receiving the approval letter of my I129 petition from Costa & Riccio, LLP.  Thank you, Melissa, for always being there, giving me timely response and help. And my thanks to everyone from Costa & Riccio, your collective effort and outstanding work ensured this successful petition.

Thank you and all your staff, for doing it right and without any problem. I and my family appreciate your outstanding professionalism and quick responses. Thank you again…

Thank you for all the information. Haven’t said this clearly enough yet but I really appreciate all of your hard work in this case. The entire process happened much quicker than I imagined it would do and this is mainly due to your professionalism and diligence and I thank you for that. I will certainly recommend you … for future applications.

Kate – Thank you and all the members of the law office over the last decade in helping with the process. To say the least, it was a marathon but I’d always felt comforted by you and others helping in the process as well as the support that (my employer) has provided. I am extremely happy that one chapter of an otherwise long, slow and often confusing process has come to an end.

Once again, Thanks to you Kate for all the professional, meticulous, prompt and courteous interactions.

Thank you for the great work you’ve done. …we’ve got an approval notice AND green card two days ago… Thanks again, it was a pleasure working with you. We will recommend your office to all our friends.

I contacted Richard Costa to help me with a visa emergency. He was highly recommended to me by the International Office at my work place for being very experienced and for presenting creative solutions to unique cases. He agreed to see me right away, which was great since I was literally running against time. He presented very good alternatives to solve the problem and started to work on them right away. Richard and his team were very responsive throughout the process, even though it was during a major national holiday. He responded to emails within a couple hours and was always available. He is pleasant, trustworthy and very knowledgeable. He managed to solve the issue in record time. I’d highly recommend him to family and friends in need of help with immigration issues.

Thank you for the prompt (as usual) response.  It has been an absolute pleasure working with yourself and Laurie as well! Needless to say, few things are, or feel, “certain” for someone on the green card path; but your office’s professionalism, resourcefulness and prompt attention to developments always gave me some much-needed peace-of-mind throughout the process, which isn’t a small thing.

First, I would like to thank you for your excellent work on my successful H-1 visa. I appreciate the attention and care you gave me throughout the process.

I want to take this opportunity to personally thank you and your team for working this case through to the end with expedience and such high level of professionalism. You guys have been so terrific and flawless in executing you job. You kept us informed about process changes and where we are in the scheme of things every step of the way. As a consequence, we can’t help but to share with others in similar situation as us about the level of service you provided.

I just got some emails notifying me that I-485 applications for me and my wife got approved and the card production was ordered. I want to thank you very much for the help during the whole process. Only because of your excellent work, we got green cards so quickly. I and my wife really appreciate all of the hard work you have done for us.

After working with you and your office it is hard to work with other people because your office is so nice with so much attention to service in it is incredible. I just wanted to thank you for your continued support and kindness in helping me out.

I am happy to inform you that we just received the Green Card. Please accept my sincere thanks to you for your help and support during the application preparation and review.

I could not believe it myself! I was getting my mind ready for a long wait and then all of this happened. I should have had more confidence in the US Institutions! In hindsight, the process was so simple and extremely fast. And certainly one good reason for this is because you and your office were by my side.

Thank you very much for all the help from you and your office. You have been very responsive to our endless questions with patience in the past few years, and we feel we are very lucky to be your client.

I want to thank you and all others at your office for all the help and support and for being there at all times to answer any and all the questions I had. I will certainly send you all the information you have mentioned, for the records.

I just wanted to pass along my appreciation for the incredibly strong work Melissa does. I find her work to be superb; she has such fine attention to detail – something I assume is treasured in a profession like yours. She is a pleasure to work with, always professional and somewhat unflappable – at least from our perspective. Her emotional intelligence is quite high; she seems to me to be a very important asset to your firm. Thank you for having her work on our cases.

Laurie and everyone involved, Thank you very much for a successful effort!! Your firm really proved to be very efficient and professional. What a great experience! I will always recommend you to my friends.

It’s been my pleasure, Kate! I just said to my husband the other day that you have been amazingly responsive – unlike the people who handled my visa at my former employer. Thanks a lot!

“Thank you to your team for the great follow through….it truly has been a pleasure working you!“

Once again it was an absolute pleasure dealing with you and your staff. Speaking with other folks who are also on the Green card track, they are all experts at this point regarding the procedures involved and everything that surrounds the process. I was blissfully ignorant, which was my choice, as I had a fantastic lawyer who is a professional, which meant I got on with other stuff, and was updated as the process evolved. Again a pleasure and thank you very much.

I would like to thank everyone for their help during my permanent residency application. It has been a long process and your firm was a great help getting us through. Special thanks to Cecilia for her excellent support.

I would like to express my appreciation to the work Kate Schlegel has been doing. Kate has proved to be professional, proactive and is very helpful and responsive when dealing with my case.

My Green Card arrived in the mail yesterday. Thank you very much! [ ] and I are very happy about it, and we are very thankful for your services. We will mail you a copy (as I mentioned to Kate before) as soon as possible, maybe end of the week.

I have indeed received my EAD card and I can fax it to you. I also wanted to let you and your office know that over the weekend I received my Permanent Residence card in the mail. This completes a long awaited step in the process. I would like to thank your office for your professionalism and never getting impatient with me and my endless questions.

Now we have completed our Green Card process through your office. I wish to take this moment to thank you and your staff and say it has been a pleasure to work with with Kate. Have no hesitation in saying we would recommend your Office/Company to anyone needing a good Immigration Lawyer.

I am pleased to inform you that yesterday, I received the Permanent Resident Card in the mail! It came a lot sooner than I thought! In the end, it only took 6 months, which I thought is exceptional. I feel very relieved now. It has been great pleasure working with you and I would like to thank you and your legal team for ensuring success of my green card application. With many thanks…
