We met Giacomo when my sister and I went to the local Customs And Border Protection's Deferred Inspection office in San Diego. We witnessed how he successfully resolved his client's problem by engaging in persuasive advocacy of his client's case. Since the many years I lived in the US I dealt with many good immigration lawyers, but never before had I witnessed such excellent advocacy as that of Giacomo. He managed to resolve the client's rather complex issues with CBP, while explaining everything to her in Italian and trying to keep calm and optimistic. He was a joy to watch and listen to. He was funny, engaging, compassionate, while at the same very knowledgeable and highly professional, a combination of qualities you rarely see in a lawyer. With incredible ease and fluidity he was switching from one language to another by addressing various groups and families sitting in the waiting area and answering their questions and orienting them on how to seek help from CBP. I then asked for his business card, and 2 days later I was sitting in his office to discuss my sister's case, for which we were unable to obtain resolution from CBP by ourselves.
During the consultation we had in his office, Giacomo answered each and every one of our questions and was very understanding, and again super knowledgeable. My sister and I were impressed and decided to hire him on the spot.
In the days that ensued Giacomo took her to CBP, this time as her attorney, pointed out the error with her admission and within minutes obtained her 3 more months to remain in the USA, with a corrected "Nunc Pro Tunc" admission stamp - here it should be noted that when we were there last time, alone and unrepresented by Giacomo, CBP simply sent us away, and asked us to file a request of extension of stay...with USCIS.. Absurd!
Having come to know Giacomo reassured us so much, given my sister so much peace of mind, that we now decided to entrust Giacomo and his office with my sister's entire immigration case.
I would like to add that Giacomo possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of the law, as well as the history and geopolitics of most, if not all countries and regional conflicts of the entire map of the world. Both my and my sister are very happy to have Giacomo as my sister's attorney, we believe in him completely and are confident that having an attorney like him will assure the successful outcome of my sister's case.

While other lawyers like to beat around the bush and ask you to hire a lawyer, Giacomo would tell you his opinion flat out. He does not use the word "maybe" "might" "it may". He answered two of my questions and his response were the correct answers both times.

My case was hopeless. I've been out of status in the U.S. for more than 20 years. Several previous attorneys tried to help, but made matters only worse. My case was complicated and, as I was told, virtually impossible to resolve, because I did not come to the U.S. legally. I was told that I could never apply for a green card in the U.S. Then four years ago I was referred to Giacomo Behar. He patiently analyzed all the different aspects of my incredibly complex situation, aggravated by many mistakes I made in the past, because of wrong advice by less experienced lawyers and Russian speaking Immigration experts. Giacomo and his staff provided invaluable support and mapped out the strategy in my case, aimed to succeed. Giacomo did a tremendous job of analyzing and explaining tome about all the twists and turns that my case may take. And the risks of being deported if I did not succeed. He managed to have my prior deportation order rescinded, where I did not appear in court due to my then lawyer's indifference and failure to notify me. Giacomo then filed a very carefully prepared adjustment of status case, where I had to explain the mistakes made by prior attorneys and consultants, and encouraged to tell me to tell the whole truth about the hidden issues In my case. Throughout the long and emotional waiting period where Immigration lost and then again, misplaced my file, Giacomo took extraordinary steps in in making an inquiry after inquiry, appeal after appeal, including contacting the office of the Immigration Ombudsman in Washington, D.C., until finally after three and half long years, my adjustment of status interview was scheduled by Immigration. Giacomo offered to drive himself to the interview, knowing how nervous I was and I am eternally grateful to him for that. On our way he knew all the right things to say to calm me down and make me feel OK and boost my confidence in myself. At the interview I was shaking with anxiety and concerns over the real possibility of negative outcome. But Giacomo was there with me and for me and his presence and confidence, as well as his invaluable knowledge of the law and procedure made all the difference in the world. He even insisted that I and my 21-year old son accompany him to lunch to celebrate my green card and future in America. My son was so emotional that he hugged Giacomo and thanked him for making us whole family again. Free at last and grateful forever from the bottom of my heart! Giacomo, you are the best!

I've read the reviews about him online and decided to set up a consultation to discuss the case regarding Green Card Lottery. Since we really wanted to speak to someone who speaks Russian, we were promised over the phone that him and his Russian speaking wife will be consulting us (200$ an hour!!!). First of all, our appointment was 25 minutes late (Ok, lawyers are busy, I understand). Secondly, his Russian speaking wife never came into the room and spoke to us (that was the primary reason I chose him...). From the very beginning Mr. Behar had an attitude, instead of congratulating us, he hesitated to offer a condolences or congrats. That was very unprofessional. Mr. Behar really does not like Russian people (even thou he is married to one), said sooo many bad things about Russian embassy, Russia and people who live there (that wasn't the goal for me to hear how some one is trashing my motherland). He was not clear and wasn't answering my questions to the point, he had many stories that were somewhat related to our situation. He also insulted me saying I will not be able to understand something he was explaining and what I couldn't get from the first time. He said "I can repeat 5 times and you will not get it".... Who says that??? Try and explain in other words.... It's in your best interest to explain to me so I can go with you and your services. And it seemed that he was irritated with too many questions... Mr.Behar told me that this is just a consultation and that we shouldn't discuss these many details.... Remember, I just paid you !!! $200 !!! Consultation is the time where person wants to find out as many details as he/she can. He also promised to call on Monday with results and details, but we never heard anything from him.
Maybe he is smart and experienced.........but I did not see that at all. Very unprofessional and ignorant.
