Amazing Lawyer!
I am deeply appreciative and excited to extend my sincerest thanks to John Nicelli, Maribel, and their entire legal team for the outstanding work they did on my case. Their high level of expertise, unwavering dedication, and tireless efforts were crucial in achieving a successful change in my residency status. I am genuinely amazed by their professional conduct, quick responses, and the individualized care and attention they provided at every step of the way. I wholeheartedly recommend their legal services to anyone in need of skilled and effective legal representation. A heartfelt thank you to John Nicelli and his team for making such a profound difference in my life!

Priceless !!!
Attorney John Nicelli is without doubt one of the best immigration attorneys you will find and deal with. He's efficient, straight forward with the facts, honest, operates with integrity and he's easy to talk to and available to speak with when the need arises. If you need someone who will fight for you and your situation see John Nicelli. When my Russian wife was rejected for her green card, John would not accept the verdict. He wrote a few letters and the green card was soon in our hands. He would not back down and fought for our case and won. He knows immigration law and knows what to do and when to do it. Bottom line, he gets it done and gives you confidence it's going to get done. Don't go into the immigration battle alone. If you need an immigration attorney who can and knows how to make it happen hire John.

Just great
John dealt with my case personally and was deeply knowledgable and highly professional throughout the process. He was always on hand whenever I needed advice or reassurance, and has continued to provide support well after the issue was closed. I could not recommend him highly enough.

Life ruining experience
Fact: hired him for representation in 1997 for an adjustment of status. He said it would take 10 years. Fact: he took a 50% retainer fee up front. Fact: i made a follow-up appointment in 2002 for an update. He had none. He asked the remaining 50%. I continued to follow-up with Mr. Nicelli's office regularly, every 3-4 months, to no avail. Frustrated with his office, i sought the counsel of a non-profit church group in 2006. Within 6 months I had work authorization. 6 months after that, I had a green card. 2 months ago I applied for US Citizenship. In the meantime, not a single phone call from Mr. Nicelli or his staff until today, 7/10/2013. I wasn't available to take the call but when I heard the message that his office called, I felt compelled to google his name. Upon seeing his reviews on yelp, and seeing his response to one of the reviewers where he threatens brigitte with legal action, I felt the need to express my opinion on his gross incompetence and lack of professionalism. I suggest that anyone with immigration issues seek the counsel of local not-for-profit agencies instead of paying this sheister for any service. Shame on me. Shame on my family. There are many church and community groups that have a better understanding of immigration law and "how to get things done" than anyone in Mr. Nicelli's office. Save yourself money, save yourself the pain and aggravtion, and save future immigrants by not using this man's services.
