OVER 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE IN ALL ASPECTS OF U.S. IMMIGRATION AND NATIONALITY LAW. CROCE & ASSOCIATES STRIVES TO PROVIDE YOU WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY IMMIGRATION LEGAL SERVICES. SERVING CLIENTS THROUGHOUT THE MIAMI METRO AREA, ACROSS THE UNITED STATES, AND WORLDWIDE.

 

Serving clients throughout the Miami metro area, across the country, and around the world.

 

I am a first generation immigrant of Italian and Swiss parents.

 

Having immigrated to the U.S. at an early age I have come to appreciate the freedoms and liberties we have in America.

 

I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Criminal Justice and I have worked in federal law enforcement ( U.S. Customs) and security for 15 years before becoming a lawyer.  This experience gave me valuable insight as to the inner workings of the U.S. government and its law enforcment mechanisms and procedures which allows me to provide real life practical advice to my clients as well as legal advice.

 

I have lived and worked abroad in Spain and El Salvador, and both of these experiences have given me a more global perspective of foreign business and cultures.

 

I also worked as an intern with the Pennsylvania Disciplinary Board while in law school and this experience provided me with a keen awareness, knowledge and  commitment to practicing law in the most ethical manner possible in order to uphold the integrity of the practice and  maintian the respect of the clients I serve.

 

My multilingual skills enable me to effectively communicate with my clients in their native language.

 

My life's long mission is to help immigrants to assimilate in the U.S. and to achieve the American dream.

 

In summary, I am "an immigration attorney who knows and who cares."

Fantastic lawyer with exceptional work ethic
Lawyers and doctors have one thing in common, they are either very professional and genuine care for you and your wellbeing or they truly don't care and only look for a way to make easy profits with minimal or no effort at all. I'd like to provide positive feedback for Mr.Croce for his exceptional work ethic and professionalism, while assisting with my naturalization case. Mr.Croce went above and beyond for me and he kept high sense of urgency and responsiveness during the whole time until my case was finally resolved. After my N400 naturalization interview, my case was put on hold and I was required to provide additional evidence. On the top of that the notice for evidence from USCIS was sent to wrong address and basically I missed the deadline to respond, which automatically makes my case denied. I contacted Mr.Croce and he agreed to take my case (although other lawyers said it's already too late) and Mr.Croce was able to make a complete turnaround in only two days by gathering all required evidence for my case and proving to USICS that the reason of missing the deadline was not due to my negligence, but actually their fault. Mr.Croce you are truly a great lawyer and professional, keep up the great work!

Excellent and Professional!
Mr. Croce help me with my husband's immigration process to obtain his permanent residency. He was very informative and helpful in the entire process. Immediately responded to our questions and email without hesitation. We also hired him to attend our immigration interview and after feeling a bit helpless he reaffirmed to us that we did well in the interview and we had nothing to worry about. He was right! My husband received his resident green card in the mail in 2 weeks!

Michalangelo Croce - very knowledgable immigration attorney
I would like to thank Michelangelo for his dedication, great assistance in pointing us in the right direction in our complicated case and his recommendations for the steps to take to have the best possible outcome. His knowledge of immigration law and the explanation of the case in great detail and in accessible terms has been a great help our situation. His treatment of his clients is very rare and I can honestly say that my husband and myself were very lucky we were able to meet him and have him on our case. He is efficient, details oriented, helpful, caring and has his clients' best interests at heart, which is a rare quality in the lawyers' field (at least in my experience). Great job, Michelangelo and associates for the successful result in our case! I will definitely recommend your services to my family and friends! Best regards!

Excellent immigration assistance
Michelangelo and his staff were excellent. They were our representatives in a marriage-based immigration case. From paperwork to helping us prepare for our interview, they were with us every step of the way and made the process as seamless and painless as possible. We plan to continue retaining them for the naturalization process when the time comes and couldn't be happier with the work they've done for us. Absolutely recommend.

On my parents Immigration case from day one Mr. Croce was a true professional. We were really impressed, he explained to us in great details the process and answered all the questions that we had. We all were blessed that we hired him and no other attorney. I cannot express the amount of gratitude to Mr. Croce. His assistant Jhobanna is very nice and very professional also. They make a perfect team. I strongly recommend to hire Mr. Croce, you will be glad that you did.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I endorse and highly recommend Mr. Croce to anyone who requires an exceptional immigration attorney. I have worked as a lawyer in Europe and the US for more than two decades. Mr. Croce is one of the most diligent and efficient attorneys I have ever worked with; his work ethics is unchallenged. I have and will continue to refer clients to him, because I simply don't think there are many attorneys with the same dedication and skill, and who are willing to go the extra mile for immigrants and their families. The results Mr. Croce delivers speak for themselves. I look forward to continuing to work with him."
