About me



Our law firm is different.  You will notice it from the way you are greeted right down to the details in our office.  Quality service, ethical advice, outstanding value, accessibility, and client satisfaction are our hallmarks.  With our almost twenty years of attorney experience, knowledgeable professional staff, and thousands of immigration matters handled, you can be assured you will not be attended to by a new lawyer looking to experiment with your case (and your life).


From the university level to an Ivy League legal education with distinction to a prestigious federal judicial clerkship to being elected partner in a large law firm and other selective appointed and elected positions and recognitions, Mr. Ongaro has demonstrated excellence at every level of his career.  Firm personnel have likewise been carefully chosen from those with a proven record of excellence and community activism and groomed over the years to meet our highest ethical standards.  We are certain you will find no better immigration team in the state.


Mr. Ongaro and Firm staff are all bilingual and native Spanish speakers.  Initial consultations are provided at no cost.  We will never charge you to simply tell you we cannot help.  Our legal fees are very affordable and payment plans are available.


Our offices are conveniently located at 320 E. McDowell Road, Suite 225 in Phoenix on the second floor of the building in which the Mexican Consulate is located.  We invite you to see for yourself the difference our extra effort, judgment, and experience make.
