Behar the lawyer helped me to get the E2 visa at the American embassy in Bern.
Giacomo immediately explained to me in great detail what steps I should take and the timing.
Everything and'went exactly as he had foretold.
He always have an answer to all my question about the application that we have to do.

Mr. Behar handled my EB-2 Green Card process in an extremely professional way.
He was referenced to me by an italian friend of mine and everything my friend said revealed to be true.
Among all, his ability to go all the way through in extremely complex cases, withstanding "Intent of Deny" or tricky "Request for Evidence" issued by the US Immigration Services.
He is able to speak 7 different languages and that sets him apart from a lot of other immigration lawyers who can speak 2 or 3 at the most.
However, what makes him a valuable lawyer the most, is his prompt availability and responsiveness to requests or questions from his clients. It's not rare to hear that he had to fly to Europe or other countries to help customers to personally handle immigration issues at the US consulates over there.
I would definitely recommend him for handling immigration processes or any kind of trouble you might have with the US immigration services.

Back in May 2012, being under a O1-B visa (extraordinary abilities), my wife and I felt the time for us to apply for the permanent residency. Because we all need a lawyer in these matters, we wanted one nearby our home who had a hard office with a secretary, speaking French (our native language) and know by public institutions. We chose Giacomo because he met all our requirements.
With his help, we applied for a self-petition EB-1 Green Card which is available for aliens with an extraordinary ability. Theses cases are super complex since it's hard to prove any extraordinary ability, knowing that this can be very subjective!
Our job consisted of collecting all the evidences to meet 5 out of the 10 listed criteria to prove extraordinary ability in my field (metal shaping). We're talking about awards, prizes with their rules and regulations, photos, magazine articles, translations and tons of other papers with not the least, 15 letters of support!
Giacomo over looked and reviewed every single evidence, document and letter and then put it all together with an impressive attorney letter on top. The case was HUGE!!
For my wife and I, it was a tremendous amount of energy, time, work as well as money. And after 1.5 years we received our Green Cards in the mail. The extraordinary ability was proved! So, positive over all for us.

I hire Mr Behar a month ago to get my Green Card after a wedding. He made everything so easy for me!
The big plus, he is speaking 8 languages.
If you have any immigration problem this is the best!

I met Mr Behar in July of this year (2013) in order to obtain some general advice on visa options from the UK. Mr Behar was very friendly and explained my options extremely well. I am still in the process of exploring my options but I am very much looking forward to working with Mr Behar in the near future.

Last week the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland approved my E-2 Investor Visa application package Mr. Behar prepared for me in less than 10 minutes!! The application was so thoroughly & meticulously prepared by Mr. Behar that the consul hardly asked me any questions! This is the second time since 2006 that I use Mr. Behar’s services to apply for an E-2 visa. I now applied on a new Business I recently bought into. Mr. Behar also assisted me with the Buy & Sell Agreement concerning the new Business I purchased and… much, much more! The fact that he speaks flawless German and each time was ready to accompany me to the visa interview also meant a lot to me.

We thank him for all the great job!

Mr Giacomo Behar was able to have my E-1 Treaty Trader
Visa granted at the US embassy in Rome, after when it was first denied when
a previous immigration attorney I hired in San Francisco filed an E-1 for
me. He completely revamped my visa
application, corrected all the errors of the previous attorney. re-filed
and got the E-1 visa approved in a record time. An Excellent Job !!
