Mr Ravani is an Excellent attorney, very dedicated and professional.
I hired Mr. Ravani several months ago for my Naturalization case. He handled my case very speedy, inexpensive and efficient. This is one of the best experience I ever had with an attorney. He is very professional, attentive, available and extremely knowledgeable. My case went very smooth forward and I received a very quick and positive result.

Excellent attorney
Simply trust him. Minor obstacles will always happen but he is capable of handling it. He is very responsive and quick. He thinks and cares about your file more than you do!

An attorney that personally answers your questions and file your case
He is an excellent attorney that will be in contact with you in person. Answers to inquiries are quick and to the point. He will discuss the risks and benefits of investment in different projects. I did not experience any delay in my immigration process. He can be forward but this only helps you to save time and sometimes money.

I was an EB-5 client of Mr. Ravani. I would not even try any other lawyer but Mr. Ravani for EB-5. He proved to be the most honest, direct, and truthful lawyer that I experienced. There are a lot of rumors and talks in the EB-5 area; Mr. Ravani was the most professional, knowledgeable, and straightforward of all the lawyers that I talked with. I would not do EB-5 with anyone but him.

Bad lawyer
No green card and no money back . After 6 years my daughter has not received her green card and even one dollar back. At first he was telling you will receive your money after 5 years. I spend a lot and gave him more than our agreement. No work for his clients.
