My husband and I had to apply for adjustment of status. Prior to visiting with Mr. Zapata we met with several other immigration attorneys. Mr. Zapata was the most trustworthy and affordable of all of them. We had an excellent experience with him. He kept it simple and after only a few month I was approved for permanent residency. He even saw us after hours as my husband is full time employed and could not get out of work early enough. We recommend Mr. Zapata to anybody who needs immigration help and advice.

We were referred to Mr. Zapata, and were advised that he was an excellent immigration lawyer. After hiring him, we were not disappointed. Mr. Zapata helped a family member who was threatened of being deported and was going to immigration court. While in court, Mr. Zapata was able successfully file a U-Visa application. Once the U-visa application was granted, Mr. Zapata got the court case closed and she is no longer under threat of deportation.
She now has a work permit, and has been told by Mr. Zapata that she will be eligible to file for a green card in approximately 3 years. We are so thankful for being referred to him, and then hiring him. He is very patient, and took the necessary time to explain what would happen in court and with the application filed. He provided clear instructions as to what documents we needed to collect and submit. We will definitely refer more clients to him, and recommend you any reader consider doing the same.

I am a very grateful client of Sir Mr. Mario Zapata. few years ago I was arrested for a petty traffic violation;driving with no licence. While I was incarcerated I was informed I had an INS hold. Upon my release I was detained by INS. I could not understand why, i had been here in the states for 22 years and complete education from kinder-grade up to high school graduation and also some college. I didn't want to believe what was going on but it was reality, I had an expired work permit that I had received from INS years ago prior to my arrest. I was released by INS on a immigration program "I.S.A.P" thankfully. I was given thee opportunity to resolve my INS case while out free. I became nervous and bit confused on how to go about my case, not having immigration law experience what so ever, I knew i needed a great attorney. Honest truth, I did what i think anyone in my shoes would have began to do in my case, I turn on my bro lap top and Google: Best Immigration Lawyer in Anaheim. Results came instantly and first on the very top " NICASTRO/PISCOPO", needing a lawyer asap due to the important fact that it was a Friday I retained MR.Zapata, and had my second INS court date in Los Angeles, thee up coming Monday. I pick up the phone and dialed (714)479-1000. @ that time NP-attorneys office was located in city of Anaheim, where I reside. Hiring my lawyer, Zapata, the the best option and choice I made. Due to ups and downs, when i had lost hope and stressed out Zapata, found a way to help me out with his incredible knowledge in his profession. He's explained and thought me how to go about my ins case in so many ways, never have I had a misunderstanding to this day. I cant thank him enough for the life changing effects, i have successfully recommended "NP_attorneys.com", to friends and family and they also have ALL been successful cases to this day.Mr,Zapata I thank you for your time,patience and kindness to my case. I'ts a true Honor and Pleasure to have you as my Attorney. God, bless always,keep up the fantastic work and happy new year...

I was really interested in hiring Mr. Zapata, but as soon as I spoke with him, I noticed the lack of compassion and understanding. That is to say the least.

I retained Mr. Zapata and Nicastro Piscopo, Attorneys at Law to assist me with the preparation of Form I-601 Waiver Packet so that my wife could eventually return to the U.S. after having gone to the U.S. Consulate in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Mr. Zapata provided excellent instructions and guidance to assure the waiver packet would be prepared and filed timely. Mr. Zapata thoroughly interviewed me and prepared an outstanding hardship letter and put together a very organized waiver packet on my behalf. Iwas through his hard work that my wife's case was approved.

Mr. Zapata was referred to us by a mutual friend. We hired Mr. Zapata to assist us through the Adjustment of Status process for my wife based on our recent marriage. The office staff was extremely helpful with any questions we had throughout the process. Additionally, they were very organized. There were no delays in the paperwoirk preparation of processing.
Mr. Zapata accompanied us to the Adjustment of Status interview. The USCIS officer pointed out that we should be very happy with our attorney because the presentation of documents at the interview helped him conduct the interview more easily.
My wife received her green card within a month after the interview.
We recommend Mr. Zapata and the Nicastro Piscopo law office to anyone needing assistance with an immigration matter.
