Client Testimonials

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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.

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

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!
