L.J. was referred to us by a business contact and it was a great reference. From our first meeting to our last everything went smoothly. He is extremely professional, knowledgeable, and efficient.

Unlike my previous lawyer who has no patient and worse, lack of professionalism, L.J. is the most trustworthy and diligent lawyer I have engaged. During my entire H1B visa to my newly approved green card, L.J. personally saw through the entire process and was always there to give advice whenever I have questions. He provided prompt and reliable services. Most of all, he looked out for me. He made me feel my cases ( two H1B visa cases and Green card) were in good hands and never need to worry. He is extremely efficient and dependable. He kept me abreast with the development of my cases and offered his professional advices as and when needed. I DEFINITELY will recommend L.J. to anyone who needs an excellent outstanding lawyer for his/her immigration or employment visa case(s).

I was very lucky to have Leonard John D'Arrigo as my immigration attorney. He had worked with me since 2003. Work visa after work visa, he represented me. He is professional and competent. I just received my green card last week. I owe everything to him!

We are incredibly impressed with the professionalism, integrity, and outstanding service we received from Mr. D'Arrigo over these past 10 years. He succeeded in securing several H1-Bs and, since a recent change in law due to a SCOTUS decision, he represented us for permanent residence, which was approved in under three months. We recommend Mr. D'Arrigo without hesitation.

LJ helped me in the process to get my residency here in the US. He was not only knowledgeable of all the legal matters, but through his experience he showed confidence in the path to take and was always easy to talk to and ask questions to. He was prompt and always answered with terms i could understand and always thoroughly explained the situation and the needs for us to. The procedure of getting my green card went smoothly, and i felt reassured once we involved LJ in the process. I would recommend him to anyone seeking legal representation on their immigration process.

I have used LJ for the past two years and have been very happy with his understanding of my business and needs. I am particularly impressed with his accessibility and response time, both of which are outstanding in general, and particularly for his profession (in my experience). I have recommended him to several friends, who I know have used him and are also pleased.

I had a very strange and complicated immigration Green Card case and was in removal proceedings. I looked for a knowledgeable, competent and honest lawyer and after thorough research I finally hired Mr. Leonard D'Arrigo to represent me.
He was really honest and realistic about expectations, filing process, court procedures and timelines. He was able to review my case based on previous poor assistance of counsel and also file the motion to reopen my case and won a motion to reopen my case at the District of Albany, NY andI finally obtained permanent residency because of his expertise and hard work.
I trusted Mr. D’Arrigo with my immigration case until my Citizenship that definitely paid off.
He treated me like family and always stayed on top of my case and comforted me when at time I was lost, discourage and disappointed. He kept me informed at all times and was in constant communication with me during the whole process.
He also worked out a payment plan with me who helped me pay his fees during the time he represented me.

Navigating through the visa process was a nightmare before we contacted Mr. D'Arrigo. He has proven to be more than anything for which we could hope. His skill and knowledge is surpassed only by his personable demeanor. I can recommend D'Arrigo's services to anyone who wants and expects the best legal representation with the visa process.

LJ is one of the best immigration attorneys. When we were looking to change the immigration attorney representing my case, our main considerations were knowledge, responsiveness, and information sharing. LJ is very knowledgeable and helped us understand the complex immigration processes. He was super responsive when it came to moving my application across various stages in the process and answering our questions. He is very thorough in his work and a true professional!
Thanks a lot LJ!

There is no single word can describe the impression that L.J. has made on me. First of all, he is very understanding of his clients. He took his time explaining every detail regardless of how small it was. Every single time I needed his feedback, he was always there for me. Not only did he provide me with guidance along the way, but he also gave me advice that helped me in making critical decisions. What strikes me about L.J. is that he has such a brotherly kind of support that made me feel that I was very fortunate to have him as my attorney. It is like having a close friend, who at the same time is highly knowledgable about law, helping me sincerely with my case. I am a physician who has very little time outside the hospital and I needed someone whom I could trust my case with. When I found L.J., I looked no further. He kept me informed with everything and from time to time he reminded me with important deadlines regarding my case. He made me aware of what documents I needed to provide as important evidence that helped me win my case. Moreover, when he went with me for my interview for my green card, he strongly and eloquently defended me in such a persuasive way that made the interviewing officer ask no further questions, and approved my application right there. Indeed, L.J. was the right choice. In sum, I highly recommend L.J. to anyone regardless of how difficult is her or his case. L.J. will stand by you in every turn that your case may take. I am very confident that if you follow his guidance, success will be the ultimate result.

My husband and I went to multiple attorneys before we decided to work with LJ. On both a personal and professional level LJ gave us the confidence and assurance that was required to make it through the immigration process. As an expert in his field LJ educated us with all of the necessary requirements to complete the Adjustment of Status application. I feel due to LJ’s (and his support staff’s) organization, responsiveness, and efficiency a process that could have lasted as long as a year, if not more, only took us 3 months. My husband and I filed an Adjustment of Status at the end of November 2010 and were approved for a green card by the beginning of March 2010. Although LJ cannot control the response times of the USCIS, by staying on top of their requests he made the process much smoother. I would highly recommend LJ (and I already have) to anyone that is going through the immigration process either a business or as an individual.

After I received Leonard's excellent consultation, I followed the instructions and my case got approved in a very short period of time.
I appreciated Leonard's sincere support and professional approach while handling my case. I also referred my friends to the firm and they were highly satisfied by the firm's legal services.

L J D’Arrigo is an excellent attorney. He is very knowledgeable, thorough professional, listens to you carefully, and on top of everything else, he is very RESPONSIVE which is not very common with the lawyers. The key component of my case was the timing, and he acted super fast on my case and handled the case accurately. He has done everything in his capacity to ensure that my case yielded positive results only. I must also mention that his staff is also very helpful. Thank you LJ!
