Client Testimonials

“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.”

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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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 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.
