Deeply knowledgeable, generous, and thorough attorney
Attorney Borts represented my stateless spouse through the permanent residency process. He was careful to explain the process thoroughly, drawing upon extensive, up-to-date knowledge of legal-political transformations within the immigration bureaucracy to give direct and comprehensive advice in a somewhat complicated case. Moreover, he is generous with his time and contacts, reaching out to relevant bureaucrats and experts in international law and immigration policies alike as needed to move forward. I always recommend Attorney Borts to friends seeking legal help with immigration matters and wholeheartedly recommend him here.

Misrepresentation - Immigrant Visa
Working with the Law Offices of David A. BORTS was extremely relieving from start to end...knowing that my case was rather a difficult one. Relieving in that, he was the ONLY lawyer, after consultations with so many others, who read and understood the difficulties of my case but firmly believed that I was going to be given my visa. He even predicted the duration and clarified that "if it isn't for the pandemic, the process will be speedy." That was a boost of encouragement for my wife and me; and indeed, almost speedily it did go...AND I'M CURRENTLY IN THE US WITH MY FAMILY. KUDOS to the Law Offices of David A. BORTS. A recommendation on his behalf is something I need not think twice about because I will honestly do it in a heartbeat. Thanks for the priceless help, Mr. BORTS!

Dedicated Immigration Lawyer
I am a proud Citizen of the United States of America because of the excellent care and attention that was given to my unique case by Attorney David A. Borts. My issue took many years to resolve and my family and I deeply appreciate his dedication, support and efforts put into helping us. Today I attended the Naturalization Oath Ceremony along with many other people who will now enjoy their freedom. Thank you Attorney David Borts.

Rhode Island's expert
it is quite clear that Attorney Borts is the number one option for those seeking Immigration advice and representation in Rhode Island and southeastern New England more broadly. Drawing on extensive knowledge and training, Mr. Borts is able to assist in a way very few other attorneys can.

So very grateful!
My partner and I recently married after being together for 10 years. I was born and raised in the U.S. and my husband was born and raised in Costa Rica where we met. I lived with him in Costa Rica for 5 years, however, we both hoped our home together would be in the U.S. Once married, we made the decision to remain near my family in Rhode Island and sought the immigration assistance of David Borts. The immigration process, at first, seemed daunting to us, however, David and his staff helped us to navigate the process with ease. They're kind, knowledgeable and incredibly supportive. The process was broken down for us in easily manageable steps and the overall costs were substantially less than anticipated. We could pick up the phone at any time and receive answers to our questions (which we did quite often.) Ultimately, my husband's legal status was granted without issue. We're both so very grateful to David and staff for their time, effort and compassion and wish them the very best.

Amazing Immigration Attorney
I had an immigration issue that was handled improperly by another attorney. A friend of mine told me about Attorney David Borts and he took on my case. Mr Borts did an excellent job representing me and my immigration issue was finally resolved in my favor. I no longer live with an uncertain future. I highly recommend Attorney David Borts for any immigration matters. He provided me with outstanding services and with excellent results. He is the best attorney for immigration matters.

Saved from deportation
8 years ago, immigration agents came to my home broke down the door and took me away from my loved ones. I was detained for over 9 months. They said I was here illegally and I had been denied an application to stay in the United States over 20 years ago. After being in jail for over a month my wife brought attorney Borts to the detention center. It took over three years, but we won the case and I was able to stay in the US with my wife and three children who were born in the United States. If it weren't for my lawyers aggressive style and determination I don't think I would have been able to stay in the states. Not only did they keep me detained for nearly a year, but I know that my attorney at one point was threatened by agents from ICE. I cannot express my gratitude for this second chance at raising my kids and being with my wife in the country that I love.

Thorough, concise, knowledgeable and careing
Mr. Borts assisted my husband and I with our adoption and immigration matters. He explained the process in full detail and has extensive knowledge in family court and immigration law. Both of the cases were fully resolved quickly and smoothly. We are very grateful for all he did for us. Attorney Borts in the only attorney we trust.

David borts stole from me and my mother this is not a personal attack this is a true statement. He reported my review.
David borts is an immigration attorney, he deals with family court, immigration status, marriage statuses and so on. Me and my mother had him representing our case, and he decided to turn against us and represent my stepfather after we had an agreement. I even payed Mr. Borts as results for his services and I still don’t understand why he treated me the way that he did. He is a terrible attorney and I would never recommend him to anyone who’s trying to win their case. I hope you don’t take this as an offense and you must be held accountable for your actions.
