Client Testimonials

I happy to tell you that today (my family) got the Notice of Decision from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration about our permanent residency in the US. I would like to thank you all for the thorough and dedicated work you have done for us.

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.

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!

I would like to thank everybody at Richard M. Costa’s for your help and support during the application process for all the various visas since I came to the US and even before that. All of you were very supportive and provided friendly, competent and timely advice.

Just wanted to say thank you for taking care of our green card applications. We are of course delighted that the process is over. I assume you already realize that you will be hearing from me through friends, after they will receive my warm recommendation to work with your office.

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.

Today was a very emotional day for us as our marriage-based Green Card application was quick and smoothly approved. It represents a major personal milestone for us as it has deep implications for all things related to raising our family, such as child adoption, my employment and career development in the US, mobility across border and more.

We would like to express our most heartfelt gratitude and appreciation for your help in filing our application in such expedited, professional and convenient way, which resulted in such instant success. We will be eager to fully recommend your office to all potential customers without reservations.

Thank you very much again, and all the best!!

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.

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…

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.

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.

Let me appreciate the GREAT JOB done by Law office of Richard M Costa in getting green cards for me and my wife Chandra. I wish to place on record the excellent quality of service and support provided by your office during this long journey from October 2003. We thank you for your continued help.

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.

Thank you all for being so great to work with – really outstanding. Would be a pleasure to recommend your group.

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 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.

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

I like to thank you for your support and excellent services during the last seven years when my application for permanent residence started. I am very pleased with the actions, interventions and professional advice which eventually led to approval of my application, even though protracted. I will gladly recommend your company to any other person I know who may need your services to obtain permanent residence in the United States. Once again thank you.

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.

“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.”

Thanks a lot for the great and exciting news. The entire application process was so meticulously prepared that I was almost certain of a positive outcome. This was, of course, due to your hard work, dedication and professionalism.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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 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.

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 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 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…

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.

Thank you very much for continuing supporting me to receive the green card. I was very happy working with you and your team. Especially I really appreciate Kate’s support with very quick and precise instructions to me during the green card getting process.

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.

Both my parents visa application was approved today. I would like to thank you all for all your hard work and efforts in making this happen. Both My sisters helped us so much as well. Once again thank you for all your help. Please convey my sincere thanks to Richard Costa as well. I have a feeling that we will need your services for other family members as well !!!!.

“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.”

In addition I’d like to say that you and your company is the best among those I was ever dealing with – responsible, trustworthy, dependable and personally nice. Your guys are really understand situation and feelings of emigrants in this country, and provide highly professional service for us. Thank you.

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

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 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.
