I have a difficult immigration case and for that purpose I start searching for a good immigration lawyer. I had initially consulted with 6 lawyers before deciding to hire F. J. Capriotti III and they have provided me different approaches to handle my case and which I believe can weaken my case but the approach given to me by Franco is very relevant to my case which I believe can produce favorable outcomes towards my case.
His immigration knowledge and attention to detail is far superior to the other lawyers that I have made consultations before.
Though he charges 400 dollars for Skype consultancy but as far as the quality and my experience of consultancy with other lawyers is concerned its still very reasonable.
The Skype consultation is the best experience as far as the consultancy is concerned because it is very comprehensive and Franco also gives you free follow up session if required.
I believe deciding the approach of the case is one of the most important aspect for any legal case and Franco is extremely competent in that.
He is an honest and bold lawyer and from bold means that he has the tendency to fight your case aggressively with the immigration authorities.
Having 35 years of experience ,attention to detail,bold and honest nature makes capriotti the ideal person to handle all the immigration cases.I highy recommend Capriotti for all immigration matters

After exchanging emails with him a few times, I was skeptical about hiring him to do my I-130 marriage- base visa process. He told him that I am a U.S citizen, have no criminal history, get steady job and good income, still he never told me the range of the legal fee if I hire him. Instead, he wanted me to pay him $400 just to chat with him via SKYPE. I was surprise to read the last two reviews, and I am fortunate that I decided not to hire him for my I-130 process .

Mr. Capriotti helped me and my spouse clean up a huge mess I caused when i decided to hire a lawyer fresh out of law school to save a few bucks. Our lawyer had been sitting on requests for evidence and filing out paperwork incorrectly and I was worried it was going to cost us our visa. Thank god for lawyers like Mr. Capriotti. When i came to him i was so stressed and thought the damage may be done. He helped us sort it all out and it was such a relief to have someone so friendly and experienced on our side.

Horrible atty. rude and cocky, after 2500$ he wasted my money. No answers, wouldnt respond to any questions, avoided confrontation and ignored any comments or questions or anything to do with my case. Did not return calls for over a week, look at his comments on this site, no atty talks the way he does to people. Switched attys after 2months, hope you see through this "man"

I paid him. He couldn't solve my problem. What happens after you pay him? He answers your questions over skype, and tell you that your problem can NOT be solved (or maybe you are even out of your immigration status), and how miserable you are as if all of your problem was your fault! In short, RUN WHILE YOU CAN! He will get your $400, and nothing will happen. You will have to find a REAL lawyer.

I had a query on my I-130 case which was made clear to me. He not only made it clear but gave asked all the options and gave advice on what needs to be done. I would definitely recommend him to my friends. Thank you so much.

Franco is a very rare find, an attorney that is not only a pleasure to work with but one that also makes you realize the value of a true advocate. The immigration process can be very stressful and one that brings a lot of anxiety. Working with Franco eliminated all the headaches, as he made everything simple and clear with his extensive knowledge of the system. You can not go wrong with Franco!

I have been a client of Mr Capriottis for quite a long time, I was here illegally for quite sometime,I was scared to go to immigration all by myself to get things straightened out.I went to a couple of other lawyers ,but they just took my money and didn't do anything for me.I FINALLY FOUND MR CAPRIOTTI III,He made me feel safe knowing that I was in very capable hands, I learned the value of finding a trustworthy and highly skilled lawyer, thatwhy I have been with him all these years. I would highly recommend his services to anyone needing help with immigration. THANK YOU MR CAPRIOTTI III

Franco Capriotti, the immigration lawyer I hired to work on a visa for me, has been able to give me an honest and thorough assessment of my case and has been able to explain the options that are available to me based on the current law, but also on the legislative changes handling my petition.He properly handled my case.
Franco Capriotti is a top notch immigration lawyer and I deeply recommend him.

Emailed Franco for a quick consultation. Within 5 minutes he email me to contact him right away (11pm). We chatted 10 minutes over the phone and he explained very clearly all questions I had.
Excellent job!! 5+ Star Recommendation

Franco got us through the process of getting my husbands green card quickly. He was very professional and knowledgable. He made it easy and less stressful for us. He was great! We would hire him again!

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.
