Franco is always available when I call and takes all my calls. He is equally responsive with emails. He continues to research issues long after the call has ended and updates me on what he has found. He is an excellent attorney.
I am a member of Legal Shield, and the best part of joining that membership was getting referred to F.J. Capriotti III, senior legal counsel at Capriotti & Associates International Law in Portland, Oregon. I am in the process of filing immigration paperwork, and have found the experience to be overwhelming at times. Mr. Capriotti has gone out of his way in order to make this as painless as possible for me with his patience for my myriad of questions, and his clear communications in return. He is personable and easy to relate to, and does not use complicated language meant for lawyers alone! At no point was I ever made to feel like I was inconveniencing him, in fact he's gone well out of his way to make this difficult experience bearable. I highly recommend hiring Mr. Capriotti as he is brilliant; he inspired confidence in his ability to answer all of my questions, as well as handle all of my legal needs. Couple this with his obvious compassion for my situation, his great sense of humor, and his willingness to take the extra time that was needed to get things right, and I ended up with a lawyer who was a human being first, and my attorney second. A winning combination!!! At times the immigration process has felt like a giant game of snakes and ladders (I had landed on far too many snakes), and I had been almost at my wit's end when Mr. Capriotti's expertise and kindness offered me a way out, one that you too can take advantage of!
Franco is a consummate professional – knowledgeable, meticulous and courteous – and has a thorough grasp, not only of the law, but also of how the immigration system actually works. That is invaluable to the client who wants to know when things are likely to happen. He also has boundless energy which is helpful in keeping the client going through what can be quite a process. Certainty on fees is another plus – always good to know at the outset what one will be paying.
Franco handled my Green Card and citizenship applications. Two things particularly impressed me. In the Green Card application, despite being asked to tell me all that he required by way of documentation, he drip-fed his requests for ever more information and proof. This proved a very sensible method of proceeding as, if he had told me all that was needed at the beginning, I would probably have abandoned the whole thing as a lost cause. Between the Green Card and citizenship applications, he kept detailed records, thus making the eventual citizenship application incredibly simple.
I have worked with Mr. Capriotti since 1994 and have received consistent, fairly priced and professional service without any errors and faults. I can warmly recommend Mr. Capriotti.
In my work as a CEO for an Oregon Company I have worked with 12 different attorneys in Oregon since 1994. 11 of these attorneys have made serious errors and some have over billed unscrupulously. This shows some about the high standard of Mr. Capriotti's work. Mr.Carriotti have consistently billed as agreed and delivered perfect flawless work on time.
Mr. Capriotti was first retained in October 2005 when my Filipina fiancee and I decided to marry. He saw our case from our 2006 marriage in the Philippines, her 2007 immigration into the United States, and her obtaining all necessary affidavits, etc. through her American citizenship in August 2011. There were no delays along the way in spite of some difficult administrative hurdles for me to get through. We never had applications or paper work returned or denied and were always apprised in adequate time about upcoming steps that needed to be accomplished. Mr. Capriotti's personal attention was much appreciated, as was his professionalism. He fees were affordable and his payment options allowed me, on a fixed retirement income, to always be current. I would hire him again and have recommended him to friends and colleagues.
