I personally don't like writing reviews in general about anything or anyone, but Matt deserves it.
I've honestly never met a lawyer so positively involved and active with his client and I'm truly great full for everything he has done for me and my family.
He helped my mother get her citizenship after a rough couple of years with other lawyers, and helped me get my wife and new born daughter entry and Permanent Residence in the United States, while also dealing with my own Green Card.
Most important, he's been extremely patient with me over the years (I know myself and I'm quite difficult to handle as a person in general), always kept things straight forward, was honest from the get go and has become a true friend.
Thank you Matt, I wish I could do this review more justice but they limit the count and I honestly can’t find more words to express how great full my family and I are because of you. :)

Mr Galati played a tremendous role in helping me acquire a green card through marriage. Right away, my wife and I were very impressed by his professional approach and personable demeanor. He made us feel comfortable about expressing our concerns, and was very proficient at addressing them constructively. He was always available over email and would reply promptly, even after office hours. He left absolutely nothing to chance, and had the whole process mapped down to the very last detail. Under any other circumstance, this would have been a very stressful process, however, under Mr Galati's guidance, it felt like a breeze. My wife and I are forever thankful to him for all his help. He has our highest recommendation whatsoever.

Immigration Law is an extremely complex subject. Anyone who has dealt with it knows as such. To add to the complexity; it is also constantly changing. In order to successfully navigate your case through this dynamic complexity; you need a very able and astute Immigration Attorney. A good Immigration Attorney should give counsel in your interest and keep you informed of all possibilities. My company and I were very fortunate to have found these qualities in Mr. Galati at KRSS.
Ever since my first call briefing him for a Non-Immigrant L1-A Visa application to the time we received the approval, the communication and attention to detail was superlative. There is no doubt Mr. Galati possesses a very fine legal mind. He was able to structure a case that delivered the most positive outcome we could have hoped for in record time.
Throughout the time I worked with him. he was always available to me and answered several mundane questions with patience and kindness. This is a quality rare to find. I have no hesitation in stating that Mr. Galati is one of the finest Immigration Lawyers that I have had the opportunity of working with and would most definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a superior experience.
