Client Testimonials

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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 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 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.
 

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.

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.

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 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.
