It is important to me that clients feel confident in their decision to hire my services, and that they trust that they have made a great decision in retaining my legal skills to work for them. 

Clients have the added benefit of communicating with in English, Portuguese or Spanish, which increases their comprehension of the intrinsicacies of the legal process.

Eu estou tentando deletar a review anterior mas o site nao me permite...eu mandei um email para o atendimento ao cliente do site, espero que eles consigam remover. A doutora Renata e muito boa no que faz, extremamente competente. Eu dei uma review negativa anteriormente e me arrependo profundamente. Me desculpe Dra. Renata e equipe.

Green Card recebido em 1 ano
Conheci a Dra Renata Castro através de seus vídeos esclarecedores no facebook, sua firmeza e total domínio sobre o assunto imigração me fizeram sentir segurança em contratar seus serviços, mesmo estando no Brasil. Fiz a primeira consulta por skype, contratei e tive todo acompanhamento do meu caso a distância, sem nem perceber que jamais havia visto aquela mulher pessoalmente e já existia tamanha confiança. Renata e sua equipe sempre dispostas e comprometidas, não houve um dia sequer que não estive a par de todo meu processo imigratório. Exatamente 1 ano após nosso primeiro contato, estamos morando nos Estados Unidos eu, minha esposa e nossos 3 filhos legalmente, todos com greencard, através do processo EB-1. Imigrar legalmente é possivel sim, principalmente se você optar ser acompanhado por uma profissional como a Dra Renata Castro. Toda minha gratidão a Castro Legal Group!!!!

Amazing help
I had heard of Renata in a mom group I am part of and a post I saw on Facebook that she made encouraging people to get their citizenship and know their legal rights. Many people said how great and helpful she was so I decided to reach out because I was thinking about possibly doing my citizenship. While talking to her she let me know that all I needed to do was file for my naturalization papers since my mother because a citizen before I was 18. Thanks to her I didn't not need to spend 1000+ dollars to become a citizen or go though the hassle. After speaking with immigration they told me yes this is true and i can jist go apply for my U.S passport as proof of my citizenship ship and that is exactly what I did this morning. I am so thankful that she took the time to answer my questions and point me in the right direction. After 22 years of waiting and not knowing my citizenship was one step away. She helped me

Citzenship
Renata is helping me with my Citizenship - a project that I had postponed for too long. She was referred by a friend and I am so happy that I could meet her this morning. She was able to fit me in for a last minute meeting and started working on my case immediately. I am confident that she will exceed my expectations and I definitely recommend her. Coming soon more compliments. Thanks Renata

Great Lawyer!
Renata was invaluable in helping us when we decided to open up our business, not only because she walked us through the whole process and made it easy for us to comply with every single legal steps, but also because she answered all our questions, no matter how trivial and took time out of her busy schedule to meet with us until we were able to walk on our own. She has tremendous skills. Nothing seems to rattle her or distract her from her goal on a case, which of course, makes her extremely tough to beat. She's also one of the most ethical lawyers I've ever known.

Great lawyer
I know Renata for the past year. She has helped me with my citizenship process. She diligently made sure to answer my calls and was able to answer my questions and advised me to make sure this process was as smooth as possible. She is trustworthy and I know I can trust her.

Péssima Profissional
Na consulta é gigante, muito eloquente e faz parecer tudo simples, porém depois de contrata la é péssima , não responde aos e-mails e ligações. Renata e Carla (assistentes) só fazem pouco caso do cliente , perderam o prazo de tudo , porém para cobrar são extremamente competentes Terceiriza o trabalho com uma paralegal de outro Estado, sem nenhum cuidado com o Cliente!!!!

Falta de cuidado com o cliente
Bom dia! Há mais de dois mede estou tentando finalizar m minha resposta a imigração. Faltam 5 dias para se expirar o prazo. Não entendo porque o escritório ( Dra. Renata), esta procrastinando tanto esta resposta. O ultimo documento enviado, veio recheado de incongruência e precisa ser reelaborado. Me coloquei a disposição todas as vezes, mas nao vejo resposta nisso. O que fazer ? Até quando esperar? Perguntas que nao tenho resposta no momento mas que me deixão com a impressão que a moinha vida e da minha familia nos Estados Unidos esta em risco. A unica coisa que quero é que minha reposta seja enviada em tempo hábil e com a qualidade que sempre acreditei que o escritório tivesse.

Extremely Disappointed
After reading all the good reviews we thought we were making a good choice. Our first video call with Dr. Renata also made us feel that she and her team would be taking good care of us. However, that was not the case. The paralegal assigned to our case, Carla Fassina, obviously did not care about us and made no effort to pay attention or communicate well. Even after messaging Dr. Renata with a very clear complaint of the paralegal our case was not reassigned. The lack of attention and poor communication led to a severe delay in the beginning of our process and a tremendous amount of undue stress. In the end we switched and used another lawyer for our interview. Even though we were on a payment plan, we had to request an adjustment of the final balance as we had been charged in advance for the interview. This means that from the start she was charging us in advance for work not yet completed which I am pretty sure is an ethics violation. Suffice to say, my wife got her green card in spite of, not because of, Dr. Renata. The headaches and stress were not worth it. I could not recommend her less.
