Review Richard Costa
  • Excellent experience with Richard Costa and his team

    I met Richard Costa 2 years ago, when he came to Harvard Medical School as main speaker for a workshop on US immigration. I was very impressed by his experience and expertise on immigration laws, given the diversity and the complexity of the questions that Richard had to answer this precise day.

    Two years after, I decided to start a green card application. I immediately decided to have an initial consultation with him at his office, to discuss about the process. He took the time to listen my case, answered my questions and never pushed me for hiring him.

    Throughout the process, it was a pleasure to work with him and others members of his team (Kate especially). High level of professionalism, quick answers to my questions and clear communication until the end of the process. I will highly recommend the services of Costa & Riccio LLP to others looking for an attorney experienced on US immigration!

    Thank you for the US immigration work done for my wife and kids (I-485 adjustment status, I-94, G-325, I-864, green card process etc).
    All the office has been very responsive, professional and human. I insist on the human side. You have represented us very well. Despite our complicated case you have, you have taken all actions and got results. Thank you to all the Boston Team, Bruno

    Okay, just to be clear, I am not a kind of person who would take time and write review stuff unless there are strong reasons why. Yes, I've been feeling deeply grateful for the work by Richard Costa and his team, and I am happy that I finally get to share my experience working with them.

    It was about a year ago - Richard Costa graciously took over my case while I was undergoing extremely challenging situation around complex H1B extension and green card application while working at Yale. My case required a great deal of experience and expertise given that its working process had to involve extremely cautious (and elegant) collaboration with some of very conservative parties at the university. I was very much satisfied with not just the outcome but also the process of his work, particularly by the level of professionalism, accountability, organization, and timely response. Of course, his highly regarded reputation in the field was unexpected plus too. What impressed me the most though was the level of compassion that I saw from him and his team throughout the whole working process - it was very clear to me that he genuinely care about his work as well as his clients (including myself!). I met/consulted with 7-8 attorneys around New England and East Coast prior to making a decision on retaining my attorney (yes, I do have a bit of obsessive traits), I can confidently say he is one of the few ones who will really care about you!

    Well, thank you so much, Richard and the team for the work you do! I hope my review will help people understand better what a wonderful service you and your team provide for us.

    Attorney Costa and his team have done an excellent job for my case of removing conditions on PR based on a marriage that was in the beginning phase of divorce. I thought it would be a very complicated case, but Attorney Costa and his team end the case with a success in 10 months. When I first call up lawyers to consult my case, Attorney Costa was the only one that was nice and patient enough to spend a good 45 mins with me to listen to what I have to say and providing constructive suggestions. Most lawyers I reached out at most spent 3 mins on the phone and told me to make an appointment for $300+ for 1hr of consulting... Attorney Costa is a very nice guy and is always there to answer his phone and email whenever I have questions.

    this is an extremely professional, but friendly and supportive practice. My practice took quite some time and Mr. Costa and his staff was on my case at every moment. They liaised with my employer in a professional, clear and reassuring way. I highly recommend Costa Riccio.

    My husband and I recently worked with Ellen Davey-Fleming and others on Richard Costa's team at Costa & Riccio LLP to file our green card petition. We were extremely satisfied with the level professionalism, the response time and the clear communications from this firm right from our initial consultation with Mr. Costa and throughout the process of working with Ellen and others (Leah Silverstein, Emma Huse & Erin Freeman) on their team. They were a pleasure to work with and we will gladly recommend them to others.

    I am finally writing this long overdue review that I intended to write over a year ago!
    I have attended one of Mr. Costa's workshops at my job a while ago, he seemed very experienced in immigration laws and had a great personality. My significant other and myself decided to have a consultation visit at his office to discuss obtaining a green card. He was extremely knowledgeable, very gracious, honest, and straight to the point. He didn't push for us to hire him (unlike other attorneys) and he answered all of our questions and actually I had a question weeks after we visited him, and I just called his office and in no time I got my answer. Our consultation visit was free of charge (other attorneys I contacted charge for a consultation). I am not sure if he normally offers free consultations or if he does so with employees from certain companies/ organizations. Overall, he has a very pleasant personality, easy to talk with, very humble and seemed experienced and knowledgeable. I would recommend him.

  • the "go-to" immigration attorney in Boston!

    When I received an extensive RFE (request for evidence) from USCIS as to "my change of status to J1 visa" application, I knew that I need a very experienced immigration attorney to help me respond to this RFE to save my application from being denied. A friend of mine referred me to Mr. Costa, I met with him at his office on Tremont Street where we discussed and wrote the response to the RFE. The response was perfectly written that the application got accepted in less than 24 hours after submission! Which is amazing.

    Mr. Costa is very knowledgeable, well-informed, straight forward and honest, he is one of those few attorneys that know the ins and outs of his profession. Based on my experience, Mr. Costa is the "go-to" attorney if you need an immigration attorney.

    I was referred to Richard and his firm by our organizations International office. Richard was absolutely fantastic from our first meeting. He asked all the right (and hard) questions right away, gave me honest and accurate statistics on my chances, and walked me through all scenarios very patiently. I consider myself quite pesky, since I read up online and then bombard him with questions, but Richard has always responded patiently and accurately. Richard's staff is impeccable too (special shout out to Daphne, his legal aide) - she was extremely responsive, on-top of things, and worked really hard on preparing my package. I got my i140 approval really quickly (and we dodged any RFE) which was great. If you want someone GREAT at their job, who know what they're doing and yet are patient with you - Richard's team should be your first choice!
