"My sincerest thanks to Marisa for all the help she has been providing in the greencard/immigration process. We filed for Labour in July 1999, got LC in April 2000, filed for I-140 in May 2000, and filed for I-485 last month.

She is very prompt, reliable, energetic and knowledgeable. She is so meticulous in reviewing the forms and finding the errors that I could not figure out myself. What's so amazing is that she responds to emails and voice mails very promptly despite her very busy schedule. I am very impressed by the attention she pays to the minutest detail in a timely and efficient manner. It's natural for most us not to understand the rules and regulations in this country and we keep asking many questions again and again. What is so different about Marisa, is that you get a very clear, reassuring explanation/answer once you ask a question. I am glad that she is on my side. I would stringly recommend her to anyone who wants immigration/non-immigration services."

"I’ve been working with Marisa DeFranco since March 1999. I was looking for an immigration lawyer to help me with H1-B visa transfer. I contacted the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) via their web site and they referred us to Ms. DeFranco.

Ms. DeFranco successfully and efficiently managed the process of my visa transfer. She worked in close cooperation with my company’s HR manager, who was very much impressed by Ms. DeFranco’s professional expertise.

Ms. DeFranco constantly updated me on the latest developments in my transfer process and always answered my questions with great patience, even after the transfer has been already completed.

Now I’m working with Ms. DeFranco on Employment Based Green Card application. And again, I can’t express how thankful I am to Ms. DeFranco for all her professional help and advise that she gives me!

I highly recommend Ms. sDeFranco if you are looking for a great professional and a wonderful person to work with!"

"Attorney Marisa DeFranco has been working with our company for over three years now. When I first started to work with Ms. DeFranco, I did not know anything about immigration processes. She really took the time to explain everything to me so that I could understand it all. We continue to value her services because of her professionalism, attention to detail and prompt responses."

"If I were to say which law firm I would choose to work with primarily moving forward, I would whole heartedly endorse the utilization of the law offices of Marisa DeFranco.

...Marisa DeFranco, in my opinion based on daily experiences, is by far the most informative, matter of fact, efficient (she gets back to me on issues much faster than anyone else), friendly and reliable (she has always done what she says she will do and provides the most conclusive info, advice and physical file info). I do not have to go back and ask her about something three times before receiving a clear answer, and as a nice bonus I sense no feeling of ego, pseudo-superiority, or passiveness.

She is very easy to work with and talk to, and is very responsive (I get the feeling of responsibility on her part, as of course it's her firm). When it comes to the complexities of immigration law, something that minor is a very nice plus (and on a daily basis becomes very major, especially when an issue is time sensitive and a TMP contact and/or foreign national is waiting to hear from me with answers/resolutions).

In my opinion determining which firm is the "best" is not only a matter of how large or how many people they employ, but rather a process of discovery that takes time and only comes with the day to day interaction with each one.... Marisa DeFranco would be the best choice for training and assistance. Bar none."
