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.

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…

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!!

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 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.

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!

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).

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 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.

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 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.
 

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.

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 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…

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 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.”

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 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 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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

“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.”

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
