FLUENT IN ITALIAN AND SPANISH.DUALLY-QUALIFIED ITALIAN & AMERICAN ATTORNEY HANDLING COMPLICATED TRANSNATIONAL LITIGATION MATTERS.
After graduating from law school in Rome, Italy, I moved to the United States where I graduated with a Juris Doctor degree, becoming one of the very few Attorneys with full academic qualifications in both Italy and the United States.
I have direct experience with the immigration process: after my student Visa, I changed my immigration status to an E-2 Treaty Investor, based on my Law Firm. Now I am a proud Lawful Permanent Resident.
I represent multi-million dollar companies as well as individuals in the process of obtaining investor Visas and permanent residence in the United States.
I also have experience defending immigrants that are placed in deportation proceedings by the U.S. Government for having committed serious crimes.
