    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.

    I have only positive things to say about my experience with LJ D'Arrigo. He is well-versed and extremely knowledgeable. He works around the clock and very expeditiously. He made the process very simple and straightforward for my employer, including payment structure. I was very enthused by the speed at which the outcome occurred and couldn't have asked for a smoother process. I think this is one of the most positive experiences that I have had with a law firm and would highly recommend LJ for any of your immigration needs. I know that I will be going back in 5 years when it is time to become a naturalized citizen. I consider him one of the best.

    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.

    Professionalism at its best is what I would call LJ D'Arrigo. He was able to file my case properly and adjusted my status from a B2 (Visiting Visa) to Permanent Resident without complications. He said within 90 days it should be sorted out and on the 89th day it was accomplished, he's also kind hearted by allowing me to pay the fees due installmentally which really help. 101% trustworthy and he's highly recommended.

    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.

    Mr. L. J. D’Arrigo is a very knowledgeable and efficient lawyer.

    Before L. J., I had a terrible experience with an extremely incompetent lawyer who completely messed up my paperwork. Quite naturally, I developed distrust in lawyers and was nervous to find another one. I was glad that I met L. J.

    With his truly professional guidance, he made me feel safe to go through the complicated immigration processes. He helped me to obtain my permanent residency, and later my citizenship.

    I know very well that going through the immigration process is not easy.
    I am confident to recommend L. J. He is the lawyer you can trust.

    All words of praises for Mr. D' Arrigo. I never had any difficulty transitioning my status from working to immigrant visa. He has a brilliant expertise in his profession and is very well organized, thus, we come up with good results in a timely manner everytime. He has been my immigrant lawyer since 2011. No time is wasted with Mr. D' Arrigo. Hats off for him!

    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.
    • I hired Leonard 1-3 years ago.
    • Leonard handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    Mr. D'Arrigo is an outstanding Immigration Lawyer. He not only has the knowledge of what is required in today's complex immigration process but, he has the patience and ability to explain it to his clients.

    My wife and step son filed their paperwork on May 9 and we had our hearing at Homeland Security on September 9. It was because of Mr. D'Arrigo's system of helping us prepare for the hearing that led to an immediate approval. Two days after the hearing we received our notice from immigration.

    I would highly recommend him, his law firm and his services to anyone who needs help navigating through the immigration system.

    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.
    • I hired Leonard 6-12 months ago.
    • Leonard handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    LJ has been truly outstanding to work with since we first started working together in 2007. His knowledge and level of professionalism is exceptional. I cannot recommend him highly enough! He helped me obtain my first H1-B visa back in 2007 and as my career has developed, he has helped me transfer that H1-B to two other employers. Most recently he helped me obtain permanent residence status.

    LJ has always provided me the highest level of service, going above and beyond his call of duty. For example, when my brother died in 2009, I had to rush back to the UK in an emergency while my second H1-B visa approval was still pending. LJ worked around the clock to reassure my employer I would return, while also taking calls from me - even though there was a 5 hour time difference in the UK. Without LJ my reentry into the US could have been significantly delayed, but he made sure I was fully prepared to reenter and thankfully I was able to return to work without any incident.

    I agree 100% with all the other reviews posted here that LJ is extremely responsive, professional, highly knowledgeable, and extremely well organized. Quite simply put, he is the best you can hire.

    • I recommend Leonard D'Arrigo.
    • I hired Leonard more than 3 years ago.
    • Leonard handled my Immigration matter.

    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.
