  • Adam S Malamut

    It is an honor to endorse Derek DeCosmo. Over the past several years I've had the pleasure of working with Derek as co-counsel. I've also referred my own clients to Derek based on his vast expertise in the area of Immigration Law. Rarely do you meet an attorney who is so well-versed in his practice area. It is even more rare to find that same well-versed attorney that has such a high level of dedication to success for his clients. Derek makes it easy to refer him cases because our client's return thanking us for the referral. Thus, when it comes ito Immigration Law, Derek is the first lawyer I call.
