Never meant a lawyer so compassionate and very supportive. He prioritize his case with much reasonable fee and considered his clients as a family. What a great guy to deal with.

I am in the Air Force and I have been patiently waiting for our government to pass some legislation on immigration. My wife was an illegal alien with no solution to change that unless she went back to her home country to file for a green card. Since I am in the Air Force with two kids, this would not be possible. This has been going on for over 4 years until we met Mr. Gambacorta. He did some research and found that we could file for a parole-in-place which is a new process for military members to help there spouses seek some sort of status in the USA. My wife was granted status to stay here and file for a green card. I am always deployed and it is reassuring that my wife and kids will be ok while I am gone and not have to worry about her being deported. Once again, thank you for all that you did for my family Mr. Gambacorta. Thank you for supporting the troops!!!!!"

Tim is such a helpful attorney. When helping a friend get his business going, Tim was able to go through my documents and make sure I had all my T's crossed and I's dotted before I made a legal agreement with my friend.

I was referred to Timothy Gambacorta by a friend and he has fully justified the trust placed in him. I had consulted two lawyers before, and they both were hopeless. Timothy Gambacorta has an excellent knowledge of the law, is committed to his clients and a very compassionate person. My greencard application was approved in record time. I thought I had no chance at all because my case was so complicated, but Timothy Gambacorta's work on my immigration case has literally turned my life around. I highly recommend Timothy!!
He is the lawyer you want on your side. Thank you so much for all your hard work!!

Timothy Gambacorta works from his heart and not for the money. He was able to help me renew my Green card which helped me reunite with my family over sea's. I have had a horrible experiences with lawyer's in past who first asked for the check and then provide their input. In this case it was reversed, he was able to provide empathy to his clients and help relieve the financial stress by encouraging his clients to use their money towards their other needs and pay his fee when feasible. Due to his vast knowledge and enthusiasm to help his clients, makes him an amazing lawyer and, my family and I are very thankful to him for helping me win my case.

Tim's analytical ability and years of experience enable him to provide thoughtful, thorough, and, most importantly, practical legal advice regarding a wide variety of benefit law issues. He listens carefully to client questions and comments and he responds quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issue. I have worked with Tim for almost 3 years and have never been disappointed in any aspect of his work.

In 2009 my husband was planning with a Sponsor, Attorney and great hope to file for Permanent Residence in the United States of America. From Application processing, filing and such an immediate decision we were told we are a marriage in question, my husband was holding unauthentic documents and lacked formatted documentation that fit the order of the United States of America's Immigration requirements.
Happy that we were answered so soon, we quickly went about responding to the allegations written and acquiring the documentation requested. Our application was denied.
Little did we know our efforts would mean that we would have to relocate to a new residence more than four times, hire a new Attorney we had no knowledge of for such an important matter as my husband's future then look to the Justice system in my husband's homeland, as well. My husband never had any encounter with his country's Legal System, and certainly no understanding of the American Immigration system.
We were not sure we were advancing with success or back tracking.
I relied on gut instinct that Mr. Timothy A Gambacorta was the Attorney for us as I could hear his heart, his ethics, professionalism and unwavering determination for the work he performs through my initial telephone call. During an immediate initial consultation, I was thoroughly convinced of his passion with the law. His site embodies his amazing education and travels. HE has offices in two US states. Yet he is sincere, owns integrity and brings social comfort to the table relieving us of any anxiety or second thoughts.
I am without words to describe what eight months of consultation with my husband's homeland justice system and another eighteen months of preparation for Mr. Gambacorta to be allowed to appeal our application. Applying again to US Immigration including requests, Mr. Gambacorta sought and succeeded the next Immigration interview.
Did I mention the complex arguments, letters, monetary appeals, the wait and proposals from the overseas justice and eventually its attempt to embezzle our proceedings. Mr. Gambacorta worked from his Chicago office. He won over the embezzlement and wrote to the legal team overseas that the law requires legal services need to be exact and save professional rapports. The extreme work to compromise then assemble the appeal and entered in perplexed me. After which, we all waited more than twelve months for the United States Homeland Security Office of Immigration to grand my husband Permanent Residence in the United States of America. My husband was awarded after another three months.
It was said that the effort to process through Immigration to America can take much longer in some situations. However, the motivation and confidence that goes into what can be a most complex case or any case could only exude from an Attorney with passion for the law and the people. Mr. Gambacorta.
With appreciation for opening my husband's future and his possibilities, on behalf of my family, my friends, our family in his homeland, both our Church's support and his countrymen here in his American Association representing his homeland, we praise you and yours as we cannot thank you enough.

Mr. Gambacorta did an outstanding job for my case. He has been my family's lawyer for the past few years, and in the past 3 months he took my case and it was a success. He successfully help me obtain a working permit card in the U.S., amongst other benefits, as part of the new law in Illinois (The Dream ACT). The process with him took about 3 months, he was very informative, helpful and always very attentive to me and my family during this process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone, an outstanding lawyer.

I had called several lawyers to assist in an emergency work visa crisis. No one called me back, but Timothy did....on a Saturday!!! I was surprised by his combination of ability to sympathize as well as work ethic to complete the goal. I have never been so impressed by an attorney, as this is simply one of the "good guys!" He has a passion for helping people, and for not giving up.

I have used Tim in several situations requiring legal counsel. I will start this out by stating that I am Tim's sister, however, when it comes to legal issues it isn't Family that I look to to represent me. I look for a strong Attorney who is knowledgable and will be a strong force in my case. Throughout the years Tim has proven without a doubt to be a strong Attorney who is extremely detail oriented. He has a gift for finding things in contracts that other Attorneys have not been able to and has been successful in saving me a significant amount of money/loss. I highly recommend Tim for any legal representation. He's the one!

I am the abbott of Wat Phrasriratanamahadhatu, a Thai-Buddhist Temple in Chicago, Illinois and Niles, Michigan. Mr. Gambacorta (or in Thai, we call him, "Khun Tim") has been extraordinary helpful to the Temple and Thai community over the years. We have used Khun Tim primarily to recruit Buddhist monks from Thailand to come to the United States. Khun Tim was also helpful in resolving some of the difficulties the temple had initially in recruiting monks from Thailand. His dedication and eagerness to efficiently solve the temple's legal problems leaves me with a warm feeling.
The temple and Khun Tim have an ongoing relationship and I continue to refer Thai people to him when I know that Thai people are in need of an immigration lawyer. Besides, Khun Tim's wife is Thai so I know he has a good heart for Thai culture and people overall.

In 2009 my life ended when my husband was arrested. I was alone with two children, a boy merely 2 years old and a little girl only 3 months old. Being an at home Mom, I felt as though I lost everything when he was taken. Not only was he sentenced 2.5 years in prison, but he was also placed on an immigration hold meaning that he could be deported. I was a mess and I had no where to turn. I began making phone call after phone call to every immigration lawyer I could find. They were all un-helpful and I felt miserable, "Could no one help my husband?" Then I stumbled along Mr. Gambacorta, from the first time I talked to him I knew that he was different, that he wasn't like all the other lawyers that I had talked to. He gave me hope and reassurance and finally some answers. He and I worked together as a team and I felt as if he were in our corner fighting with us for my husband's freedom. The fight was certainly not easy and it was long and extremely difficult. Mr. Gambacorta was always there even on nights and weekends, always willing to help. I can't express how appreciative I am to have found him. My husband is back home with us now and we are celebrating our 8 year anniversary this Friday. Thank you for your sincere dedication Mr. Gambacorta, you brought my family back together.
