Got my job done
I hired Mr.Toscano for consular processing for H1B visa. He was extremely helpful and efficient in getting to the conclusion of my case in less than 2 months. Regular updates from his end, smooth communication and focused approach was so satisfying. Would recommend anyone with immigration or visa related issues to reach out to this office.

Amazing experience
My husband and his family have used Richard many times for their immigration needs and Richard has been amazing every single time. Quick to answer questions, willing to meet late due to hectic work schedules, and always gets the job done. Truly don’t know what we’d do with out him. If you want it done the right way, then hire Richard you will not be disappointed.

Prompt and through, responsive lawyer
Mr Richard Toscano helped me understand the criminal angle to a temporary restraining order and how it can effect my immigration status. I got prompt response from him to discuss my civil case and even more through response when he learnt that criminal charges have been filed. Without him I would have been ‎in a different place right now and much more difficult one, but I am not. Thanks.

Fortune to have Richard as our family lawyer
Beyond grateful with Richard Toscano for his extraordinary work. Toscano has been the family lawyer and has successfully helped all of us one way or another. My parents met Toscano through family relatives. Toscano has effectively helped my uncles with their citizenship dating back in 1980's. Recently, My mother was able to obtain her residence in less than a year. Toscano is a well prepared lawyer and always willing to help his clients. I was pleased with the fast pace he communicates with his clients, just an email or phone call away. Toscano also speaks spanish which is a great advantage, making it more comfortable to speak with. He is a trustworthy lawyer and will guide you through the right path. I highly recommend him and can assure anyone, that he is an excellent lawyer. I am extremely pleased with his work and will always recommend him to friends and family. Toscano will continue to be our family lawyer whom we seek for his qualified work.

Excellent attorney. Would recommend.
Richard Toscano lawyer helped us out in a criminal case related to a company I started with $93 million in funding. He then subsequently helped obtain employment authorization documents and finally a green card. Excellent attorney. We have had many good times over dinner. We have even brainstormed creating our own startup together.

Immigration
I have went back and forth with many lawyers. Some have told me that my husband's immigration case is impossible and I should just forget about it. I have lost all hope. Then my friend recommended me to Mr. Toscano, who was very helpful! My husband got his visa in two years, for which I have been trying hard for the past six years. I recommend Mr. Toscano to everyone who is suffering with the same problem.

An exceptional advocate
Richard toscano is a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and quite professional lawyer. We were introduced to Mr. Toscano by a close friend. I was quite impressed by his knowledge and determination for the case.We found him when all hopes had vanished. My father was detained by ICE and the only thing I was told by the lawyers was that there is no hope and he will be deported. Mr. Toscano was the only lawyer who insured us that my dad can come out and with the help of God and Mr. Toscano’s hard work my father came back home. He is always available via phone, email or in person. He explains each and everything thing in detail. He knows what he is doing. I would highly recommend him. Mr. Toscano is like our family attorney. We always consult him in any legal matter and will continue to do so. I am highly satisfied by the work he did in my father's case and is continuing to do so.

Detention by immigration.
I was holded up by immigration for 5 months and 10 days. It was the most terrified time of my life. Never expected that immigration would have hold me that long. But thanks God for Mr. Toscano, he took my case and work on it few days after and work energetically to keep me in the us and not to be deported. Without Mr. Toscano life would have been departed from my family, I would have to be back in Pakistan and my wife and kids in the US. Thanks to Mr. Toscano for the awesome job he did with my case.

The best / EL mejor abogado
I Can't put into words the phenomenal Work this lawyer did for my family on a case involving a family member that was seemingly hopeless. I was told by a friend that for every 100 cases only two of this may get resolved.; it maybe a waste of my time. Mr Toscano asured me that our case would one of the two out of one hundred successful outcomes. We achieved success with our case. Mr Toscano speak more then five languages. Mejor abogado que he conocido,honesto Eficiente.

A man that is reassuring
mr Toscano has been very helpful in the past with many of my family members cases and for the first time I needed some immigration help and only one name came to my mind. It was the best decision I have made regarding this matter. He was very reassuring in the full process and it is finally over with good results.

Getting updated. information about immigration law
I consulted and hired Mr. Toscano several years ago and I still continue when I have any question about immigration and law. Mr. Toscano provided me with guidance and updated information of the immigration law. He talks straight forward and does not give any unrealistic expectation. I first hired him for my citizenship and lately when I filled a petition for my spouse. He is honest and i trust him because his information is always accurately. Mr. Toscano speaks Spanish and that makes feel any client like me comfortable and feeling that he can truly understand me. Also, Mr. Toscano hiigher standards and compassion for his clients make him the perfect immigration attorney. I highly recommend him for his honesty, hard work, updated information, ability to research any case, bilingualism and fare rates.
