Caterina and her staff are very attentive, thorough, and knowledgeable. They answered every question I had and made the entire process seamless. Everything was timely prepared and correctly done. We just received the amended birth certificate this week based on the court order Caterina obtained for my family. She and her team are a pleasure to work with. I recommend her highly.
I reached out to Caterina for some help with obtaining a document for an Italian Dual Citizenship application. I had been stuck in a vital records unit and the process was going nowhere. It was a simple fix, she knew the answer right away, and she sent the required document without charging a dollar. She is a lawyer with a good conscience and a good heart. I am so grateful for her help. I expect to be returning to actually engage her services, as the application process is daunting!
I work with attorneys often and this firm is one of the most responsive, thoughtful and easiest to work with that I have encountered. In addition, it provided me great advice and assistance on an unusual matter. Thank you!
Caterina and her staff were very helpful at helping me with matters concerning dual citizenship. They took the time to explain what we needed to do and made the process easy. They communicated well and followed up with their progress throughout the process. Had a great experience working with them.
While in Italy, we hired Caterina to help us with a unique citizenship situation. She was always very responsive, professional and a pleasure to work with. If we have a need we will use her again, I am certain! I would highly recommend Caterina.
I am very pleased with the work of Caterina. I had a complicated case of requiring a court order to align on all the different spellings in English and ITalian of my relatvies, and she delivered on time and completely!
Caterina was able to secure the documents and approvals from the state that I needed for my dual citizenship to move forward. I would never have been able to navigate the process with her expertise. I am so very grateful and would highly recommend Caterina. Working with her was a smooth and easy experience. THANK YOU!
I love hiring professionals who understand my needs, ask the right questions and then just "make it happen!"Caterina was truly a pleasure to work with - she was transparent about her fees and realistic in the timeline, she provided routine updates with clear, concise and 'plain english' explanations.Bottom line, working with attorneys isn't something I can get really excited about but in this instance, my situation was easily and professionally managed by Caterina and I could not be more grateful.
Caterina and her team were nothing short of amazing. Great service, communications and responsiveness. I didn't need to worry about a thing, and they accomplished my dual citizenship needs above my expectations. Highly recommended!
Due to the nature and location of my case, I wasn't able to hire Caterina as my attorney. However, she still proved to be a wonderful and knowledgeable sounding board. After a different attorney told me that there was no way I would win my case if I represented myself I was ready to forget the whole thing. Caterina encouraged me to file anyway and coached me through my concerns. I'm thrilled to say that my petition was granted by the court today and I can move forward with applying for dual citizenship! I highly recommend Caterina. She is extremely helpful!
Caterina was concise and honest with all of the detailed information I needed for my dual citizenship. She was able to quickly and efficiently prepare and file my documents which made a very stressful situation relatively stress free for me!
Caterina Ranieri, is a Civil law attorney specializing in dual citizenship matters. Located out of upstate/central New York state she is extremely familiar with the workings of both local and state government procedures.In order to obtain Irish Citizenship, I needed assistance obtaining the "long form”, certified copy of my deceased mother’s birth record from New York State. Because of New York State privacy rules, and my mother being deceased, there was no way for me to obtain this birth record without getting a court order. Caterina proved to be particularly skilled in navigating the inner workings of the bureaucracies involved. Additionally, she was straight forward with me as to what steps I would need to take in assisting her. She was clear, concise, caring and professional in all of our interactions. Obstacles were never a problem, just a step along the way.When I first contacted her in May of 2020, she laid out the steps required to attain our goal, her fees (quite reasonable in my opinion) and additional likely government charges we would incur.Within approximately 6 months, I had my required paperwork in hand. I have no idea how I would have achieved this on my own. I highly recommend Caterina Ranieri in matters similar to those described above.
Caterina helped me with a somewhat complicated New York State birth certificate issue. She was very professional, timely and got the job done. She was quick to respond to my emails and was reasonably priced.If you need legal services related to dual citizenship you should give Caterina a call. She is terrific.
A friend of mine is looking to move to Italy and I could think of no one else but Caterina to refer her to for help!
“Caterina represented me in a dual citizenship matter. Although I live on the west coast, the majority of the necessary documents belonging to my antecedents were archived in New York State and New York City. Some documents could not be released without a court order and there were discrepancies in others necessitating a “one and the same” court order. Despite the geographical challenges of the two coasts and a pandemic, Caterina handled it all and we were granted the court order. My dual citizenship was ultimately approved and Caterina was a big part of that success. She’s also quite personable and a good conversationalist. Highly recommended.”
“For many months, I had been assembling my documents for dual citizenship with Italy. It was a tedious process that required certified copies of birth, marriage, and death certificates, along with a stack of other paperwork.
When it came time to obtain documents from Syracuse, I could not travel from California because of the pandemic. In addition, I needed the court’s permission to obtain my father’s certified birth certificate because he had passed away. When I looked into it, the process seemed rather complicated for the lay person, and I’d received conflicting information from others. What to do?
Caterina Ranieri was recommended to me from an online group of other citizenship applicants. When I contacted her, she said that she’s managed this process before and knew how to file the petition to get the birth certificate released. She then quickly obtained the necessary documents, and she filed a petition to the New York State Attorney General for approval to release my father’s certified birth certificate to me. That petition was approved.
I recently completed my entire application package, and I’m now on my way to having my Italian citizenship recognized. Caterina played an important role in helping me wrap up this process. Her work is allowing me to fulfill a lifelong goal. If I need assistance in the future, I most definitely will contact her again.”
