Richard Alvoid was a joy to work with. He was very knowledgable with every step of the visa application. His professionalism made us confident that we had the right man for the job. I recommend him highly and would use his service again as the needs arise.

It's a joy to work with Richard Avoid and his competent, friendly staff. Let's face it, immigration applications can be so stressful, but in Richard's hands you feel completely informed and well taken care of.
Richard has that rare combination of being a brilliant immigration lawyer with a big heart, which is why we have used his firm several times and will continue to do so in the future.

Mr. Alvoid and his staff showed tremendous patience with me and my case. They made sure I felt comfortable with every form filed and understood exactly what was happening and what should be expected next. Every email (question / concern) I sent was answered promptly (almost immediately!) by either Mr. Alvoid himself, or his very knowledgeable staff (sometimes even both!).

I've used Richard for multiple visa processing. He is everything I could wish for. Whenever I have a question, he answers promptly, and clearly so I can understand. He doesn't waste time, but is specific. In each case has clearly indicated and given guidance where I needed it.

Taking the points in order, I have found Mr. Alvoid to be entirely trustworthy, most evidently proved in areas where answers to certain problems were unsure. Mr. Alvoid has never once given a false sense of security or hope, followed by 'reasons' for things not going as stated.
With regard to both 'responsive' and 'kept me informed', I would say the following: Regarding both visa Petitions & processes (Green Card is still ongoing), I have opted for the ECO CONTRACT (Electronic Communications Only) option. I have found responses both from the office, and not only that but from Mr, Alvoid personally, particularly prompt. I would add that during a period in which time the Law Firm Offices were flooded, I still continued to receive communication and advice with questions I had.
Regarding 'knowledgeable' - very impressed particularly with Mr. Alvoid's personal knowledge of the 'spiders web' of Immigration Law. Having said that, what truly impressed me was Mr. Alvoid's willingness to look into areas that are ambiguous, both with great detail and integrity. I have done a reasonable amount of research personally around immigration law, and was always grateful for Mr. Alvoid's willingness to discuss the more difficult areas and work with me as I tried to learn more about the process involved.
So, overall, highly impressed! Anything negative to say....? Well, I was extremely frustrated by the time it took to work through my Temporary Visa (R1), (UK citizen). However, if any responsibility were to be leveled at Richard Alvoid Law Firm, it would be due to the fact that a good deal of time was taken over further researching some very difficult areas before I had to make some key decisions regarding the Petition process. It would have been an 'easy out' to go with what we had, but time given to further research, yes proved frustrating, but ultimately proved essential to the Petition success!

My wife and I have worked with Richard and his team for over a decade and without exception have received prompt attention, knowledgeable responses and success in dealing with the USCIS. I can recommend Richard and his team without reservation.

I`ve been working with Mr. Alvoid for more that two years now, and I can`t tell a single bad thing about my experience. Him, his wife Mrs. Zanardi, and staff overall was very helpful. All of my emails were replied to in a timely manner. Whenever I had a question concerning my case, or even unrelated to it, Mr. Alvoid was there to assist me. During these two years Mr. Alvoid helped me with applying for work authorization, fingerprints, court orders, etc. etc.
I thought that my case was a disaster, until I had a consultation with Mr. Alvoid. I`ve tried to get some legal help before I hired him, but only made it worse and got the decision for my case postponed for almost three years. Once I hired Mr. Alvoid, I could see the results of his work instantly. I have had my interview scheduled right away, received my work permit, and my driver`s license.
Mr. Alvoid is very knowledgeable and professional; he will always suggest you only what`s best for you, without trying to rip you off with high fees. Also, the payment plan was very helpful, since I`ve never had the full amount up front.
We have successfully won the court, and I was granted political asylum! Thank you!

Mr. Alvoid and his team went above and beyond to help my husband and I with our case. I have had bad experiences with lawyers before so was apprehensive when hiring someone else but I am glad I did. Mr. Alvoid and his team were extremely helpful in walking us through the process and helping us pick the best plan of action. They were also very quick to respond to any of our questions. Lastly, his very extensive knowledge and integrity reassured me that I could count on them. We couldn't have asked for a better lawyer as he exceeded all of our expectations.

I knew Mr. Alvoid and his wife Cristina one year ago in Bologna (Italy); my situation was intricate, but thanks to the good advices and the nice job made (speaking English and Italian was very helpful for me) I obtained what I was asking and needing for, a 5 years Visa to live and work in the USA. Grazie Richard, grazie Cristina!!
