    • I recommend Elizabeth Ricci.
    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Immigration matter.

    I have had the pleasure of working with both Mr. Rambana and Mrs. Ricci since 2003 when I started my immigration process. They are both very knowledgeable, caring, easy to work with and trustworthy. I personally feel that navigating the complex world of US immigration is not an easy task and you definitely can’t afford to make mistakes while doing so. I had a very positive experience in my journey from getting a work permit, green card, and finally naturalization. Having them help in every step of the way definitely made all the difference in the world. I am a happy client and I highly recommend Rambana & Ricci for all of your immigration law needs.

    Thanks to Elizabeth, I just received my green card! I'm a Japanese classical musician living in NYC. I was recommended Elizabeth by her former client (Spanish composer) who got green card as an extraordinary musician. Initially, I was worried about I won't be able to talk to her face to face as she is based in Florida, however, even though I've never met her in person, between emails, phone calls, and Skype, I had no problem communicating with her and getting my questions answered.

    I believe EB-1 (or any artist related visas) is a difficult one because all evidence must be presented in a certain way so that any officers can clearly understand how extraordinary he/she is. She knew exactly what works and what doesn't. Even though Elizabeth and I both thought I had plenty of great evidence, I got another request of evidence letter asking to clarify more. It was a lot of hard work for both of us collecting more evidence, but she handled it very efficiently while encouraging me.

    I took me about a year since I started the process and I believe that's pretty normal for this type of green card.

    I highly recommend Elizabeth if you are a foreign musician like myself no matter where you currently live.
    I'm definitely sending all my foreign friends who are looking into getting O-1 or EB-1 to her!

    • I recommend Elizabeth Ricci.
    • I hired Elizabeth more than 3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Immigration matter.

    Elizabeth has shown caring and compassion in a dignified and knowledgeable manner trying to get a green card in a same sex marriage situation involving a partner from South Africa. This case has involved deep emotions and Elizabeth has been sensitive to this. One of the many ways has been to immediately forward any news she receives, knowing her clients are anxious. She is never too distant for personal contact. Elizabeth has made physical, written and private communications for our case. We TRUST our lawyer and rely on her judgment completely. what is a better recommendation or display of satisfaction.

    She is very informed and easy to work with, We were very impressed how fast she was at getting everything started. For the first time I feel like I have a chance to get one of my family members here to live with me and help me as I grow older.
