Best immigration lawyer around
Before finding Kurt through our friends lawyer who was unable to take our case at the time but recommended kurt we had another lawyer who had know clue what she was doing and had my husband pretty much on a one way ticket back to Brazil on his removal order. Since we hired Kurt he got the government to agree to a joint motion to reopen and we just found out yesterday the judge agreed to the joint motion to reopen as well. This means he no longer has a removal order and we can continue the process to my husbands green card. I owe kurt my life. Hes professional, knowledgeable with over 30 years in immigration law, he keeps you informed of your case status, he returns texts and phone calls within a timely matter and most of all he does what he says he going to do. You get what you pay for and this man deserves way more!! Thank you kurt!!!

Kurt Saccone changed my life!!!
Kurt Saccone is absolutely one of the best lawyers in Buffalo, New York. I was placed in deportation proceedings and he was able to adjust my status to permanent resident. Mr. saccone goes the extra mile when assisting his clients. He was able to go back to my home country and gather evidence for my case and also put my family at ease. I would advise anyone going through this process to exercise patience even though it would seem very difficult. I was detained throughout that process for a very long time and it is easy to lose hope. Kurt was able to keep myself and my wife positive through that difficult time. I would recommend Kurt Saccone for any immigration situation, no matter how hopeless it might seem. I am living proof.

Experience you can trust
My husband and I were facing an impossible situation with his immigration case. He had a final order of deportation after a failed asylum bid which his previous attorney did a poor job representing him at. He is being held at the Batavia Detention Center and I travel two and a half hours to visit him twice a week. I reached out to many other attorneys asking for a second opinion and I always received the same answers "your husband's situation is impossible and I better get used to the idea he will be deported". I was crushed since I am pregnant with our first child and I lost my job. As we both lost all hope, my husband was recommended to reach out to Mr. Saccone for one more opinion. I was discouraged but gave Mr. Saccone a call. He was prompt to respond to my message and immediately began to look over our case. Within a few days of speaking with both my husband and I, he and his partner had a plan that could possibly help my husband. Kurt reached out to the guatemalan consulate which my husband's previous attorney failed to do and started working on my husband's case. Kurt and his partner Elizabeth were able to expedite our I-130 Family Application that we had done with the previous attorney and once having that approved, it opened up other options. It has been a very long road and an emotional rollercoaster but Kurt has been professional and has shown kindness and understanding when we needed it most. We are still fighting my husband's case but we both have full confidence that with Kurt as our attorney we will have success. I thank Kurt because my husband might actually have the opportunity to see his first born child being born and be there for her as she grows. If anyone is in need of an experienced attorney who will actually look at your case and take it serious, Kurt Saccone is the attorney I recommend.

I can't thank you enough Kurt for the work and the attention you gave us. My husband was detained in Batavia holding center and if it wasn't for Mr. Saccone I don't know what could have we done. Kurt takes his job very serious and he makes you feel you are the only one he cares about and you are always in the top of his list. He communicate very well and respond very quickly. He is simply perfectionist professional and amazing lawyer.

Excellent Lawyer
My brother was detained by ICE at Batavia Federal Detention Center, NY awaiting final deportation. Since his case was extremely complicated we were desperate to find an experienced and well versed immigration attorney to represent my brother and found Mr. Saccone in Avvo. We found Mr. Saccone to be extremely knowledgeable of the complex immigration law and he was honest in advising us what to expect and how to proceed. He is also very organized and responds to any question we might have. We are happy to report Mr. Saccone’s dedication and hard work got my brother to be released in condition of supervision. And now he is re-united with his wife and two young children. We are extremely grateful and in dated to Mr. Saccone’s forever.

Words cannot truly express what a valuable lawyer Kurt Saccone is. He has a very strong work ethic, is honest, diligent and scholarly. Kurt is never ill prepared, he never kept me in the dark and always took time to answer my questions. The successful outcome of my immigration woes can be directly attributed to his hard work on the case. Kurt took personal interest in my case, putting in long hours and expressed genuine care about my well being and the overall outcome of my case and future. Kurt, is simply the best, he truly should be the example of how all lawyers should be.

Life Saver
I call Mr. Kurt Saccone a life saver. I had 5 days left to leave the country when one of my friends referred him to me. His professionalism, honesty, integrity, and knowledge made me believe in him; after going through so many lawyers in the capital region. He made me feel comfortable and safe and he worked really hard to save me and my family. After 8 years, I'm still here running my business and supporting my sons financially and emotionally while they're in college. Without Mr. Saccone I would not be here and my sons would never have been able to go to college. Again, I call him... a life saver. He is the best thing to ever happen to me and my family. I wish him a lot of success with the new business that he opened in Schenectady, NY. I would recommend him over and over again, for the rest of my life.

Professionalism, Confidentiality and Delivered Results.
I hired Mr. Saccone to represent me with my case . I was frustrated and had many doubts of how my case would turn out as it was years after years trying to accomplish my dream. As it seems then, there were no hope, no light at the end of the tunnel for me. I learnt of Mr. Saccone through a recommendation I received from a friend. I was hesitant to make the consultation to meet with him, my thoughts "another attorney recommendation". I thought it through for some time and decided to meet with Mr. Saccone. On my very first appointment, after meeting with Mr. Saccone I was somewhat relieved as he did shown me "hope". He give me confidence that my case was possible so I hired him and fired my current attorney. Mr. Saccone has treated me with professionalism, confidentiality, transparency, excellent responsiveness to inquiry I have made and most of all, Integrity. Mr. Saccone was extremely knowledgeable with the subject matter and answer any questions I had. The answer you get that can be trusted, not the punch-line I usually get with the other attorneys I have worked with. For that, I admired his knowledge and have come to have great respect of his knowledge. Although my case took 13 months to get resolved which involved many processes to complete, that was normal comparing to the national average. Mr. Saccone has finally came through as promised on day one. Results were delivered. Because of the high level of professionalism Mr. Saccone handle my case, I had never lost faith once during the course of my case. Because of my experience with Mr. Saccone and at the high level he handle my case, I highly recommend his serves to anyone. If you want results, professionalism, confidentiality, transparency and respect, then Mr. Saccone is who is to be hired. The one area I am truly impressed with is his responsiveness and transparency during my case. I truly recommend him!
