Mr. D'Arrigo was excellent all the way through my husbands process to his green card. He was always there to answer any questions and always came to the phone when we called or called back if he was not available. My husband had received his temporary green card at the time of his death. There were many issues at that time to be handled, informing immigration and returning the green card. At that time Mr D'Arrigo was never available to come to the phone to speak to me, I only received emails or text messages. I was very disappointed that he no longer felt it was important to speak to me.

Leonard D'Arrigo (LJ) is one the finest immigration attorney out there. He handled my employment based immigration. Every step of the process was handled with professionalism, timely replies and excellent co-ordination. His knowledge of all aspects of Immigration is hard to find. My case was a bit complicated but LJ's expertise made it look easy. All the steps of my EB immigration starting from H1B visa to Green Card were handled by LJ without any issues and made my legal immigration into the USA a joy rather than a hassle.
Thank you LJ.
My advice to anyone looking for a good attorney, just stop looking and call LJ.

I have only positive things to say about my experience with LJ D'Arrigo. He is well-versed and extremely knowledgeable. He works around the clock and very expeditiously. He made the process very simple and straightforward for my employer, including payment structure. I was very enthused by the speed at which the outcome occurred and couldn't have asked for a smoother process. I think this is one of the most positive experiences that I have had with a law firm and would highly recommend LJ for any of your immigration needs. I know that I will be going back in 5 years when it is time to become a naturalized citizen. I consider him one of the best.
