Highly recommend Kyle and his practice
I engaged Kyle's practice to assist with obtaining a spouse visa to the US for my wife. We were successful in our application, and the whole process took less time than expected - I attribute both things to the professionalism and expertise of Kyle and his team.

Support in Employment Based visa application
At the end of 2023 we engaged Barella Global to assist with my Employment Based Visa (EB-1c) application process. They have provided excellent service both in advising on the procedure and eligibility, as well in drafting key documents and reviewing all materials. Under their guidance, we prepared well put together application package which then lead to quick approval of my employer’s Petition. Subsequently, the attorney Kyle Barella and his assistant Anna did a great job of guiding me and my spouse to prepare and submit all required documents for the Consular process. Our visas were approved in a very short overall timeline without a tissue along all the steps. I couldn’t recommend more using Barella’s services!

Legal Counsel for I-130 Petition for Alien Relative RFE
Kyle Barella and his team have been very helpful in supporting our process with USCIS. From the introductory call, we could tell they were very acquainted with our situation and would be best to handle our case from abroad. We greatly appreciated their prompt responses and efficiency. Their response to the Request for Evidence we received from USCIS elicited an approval of our petition within a few working days. We would definitely recommend his firm in handling family immigration matters to others.

Spousal Sponsorship Matter
I highly recommend Barella Global and its staff: it was a pleasure to work with them from the initial consultation until the day our case was approved. The firm was always accessible, responsive, and reliable. Barella Global was extremely efficient and timely in preparing the paperwork and forms for every stage of the application and was diligent and thorough in creating a comprehensive case file to ensure we were providing all information necessary for a successful adjudication of our case. It was of great help and a huge relief given our hectic schedules and situation. We would not hesitate to highly recommend working with them to anyone.

British citizen making US visa application
We are delighted with the service we received from Barella Global. Anna and Kyle helped us with every step of the process, from filling the initial applications & gathering the supporting documentation, through to prepping for the final interview. Everything went exactly to plan, and we obtained our visa on the first attempt. The Barella team did much of the lifting, while offering advice and best practise throughout, making this a transparent and stress-free process. I’d highly recommend Kyle and the Barella Global team to anyone considering a visa application.

Great firm, amazing lawyer
Truly amazing lawyers and service. I was applying for an spouse immigrant visa to the US and Kyle Barella helped me and my wife to reunite in the USA. They have provided me with all the information necessary and they went far and beyond what was asked of them in our case. I would highly recommend this firm if you ever try to immigrate to the USA from Belgium as they have all the knowledge and connections necessary to make it a smooth and easy process. Thank you

An straight forward, articulate and effective attorney...
Mr Barella assisted me with my US Immigration Visa, and provided sound advice throughout. Never failing to respond within a few hours he addressed and answered my questions with knowledge and impeccable efficiency, and his perceptive legal counsel made a complex process seem relatively simple. Mr Barella, in my experience is an astute and passionate attorney, and his team are most personable. I would not hesitate to recommend Barella Law for their expertise and quality of service.

K1 Fiancé(e) Visa and Adjustment of Status Experience with Barella Global
I cannot recommend Kyle and Barella Global enough. We initially contacted the firm back in late 2018 and received exceptionally detailed information regarding the K1 Visa process. Barella Global remained consistent throughout the almost 18 month process in terms of their response times, their level of care and attention to my particular case and their speed in preparing the necessary legal documents. I always received clear instructions as to what I needed to do and which documents I needed to send them in order to file and progress to the next stage in the journey. They kept me updated at all points as to how long I would potentially be waiting for the following stage and when we reached the next stage, be that the K1 interview, the adjustment of status filing or the green card interview, Kyle and the team were always ready to assist me in any way and provide the next set of paperwork so that we could file quickly and accurately so as to avoid any delays in the process. Exceptional.

Barella Law
When identifying a provider to support with a US visa, I called several law firms and had varying responses. Kyle Barella took the time over the phone to explain the different types of visas and which one would best suit our purposes. The E2 visa application required a lot of information and gathering of evidence. Kyle made clear requests for documentation which he would then peruse and provide feedback accordingly. Once all was compiled, Barella Law then organised and submitted the E2 visa application pack to the US embassy. Pre interview at the embassy, the firm ensured that they were available to provide pre interview guidance. The E2 was approved and we are all pleased with this result.

Successful E2 Investor Visa Application
We used Barella Global to assist us in obtaining E2 Visas to help us expand our growing business in the United States. We were successful in our application and extremely grateful to the team at BG for their hard work and professionalism. We interviewed a number of possible attorneys and selected Kyle because he seemed immediately fully engaged and keen to help before we had hired him. His clear grasp of our needs and the options available stood out as did his very apparent knowledge and abilities around the Immigration process. He clearly explained each step of the way and helped us to collect all of the information needed to support our application whilst dealing with our many questions. Perhaps more importantly he completely understood that we had to run our business in the meantime and that this was something we had to fit into an already busy schedule. He was always there when we needed him and not afraid to nudge us when other matters were distracting us. He is great to do business with, gives the impression that EVERY client matters and has a gift for explaining the legal process very clearly without resorting to jargon. And of course, he got the job done. I would recommend him without hesitation.
