It has been wonderful working with Caterina, Nicole, and the entire staff. They worked their way through the entire complicated process, found solutions to problems, encouraged patience when needed, and lead me successfully to the documents I required from New York City for my Greek citizenship recognition. Ευχαριστώ and Grazie!

I would highly recommend Caterina Ranieri & her team. They worked incredibly fast to resolve my Article 78 case & their prices can’t be beat. My case was particularly complicated due to various discrepancies but they knew exactly what to do to resolve this!

Caterina Ranieri and her team are incredible. I came in wanting to hire them and they provided me with all the information that showed I did not actually need to hire them. Wow. I would hire them in a second and cannot recommend them enough.

It was a please to work with Caterina Ranieri and her team of professionals. My family and I have been working towards Dual-Citizenship with Italy for about 5 years. We went to court and got a favorable judgement solving a name issue for my Italian born grandfather. It was a one and the same judgement. Caterina has a complete understanding of what is going on with Dual Citizenship. It's as if she has her finger on the pulse of this industry. I am glad to have trusted her with my family matter and I think you can too. I highly recommend her and her team!

I used Ms. Ranieri to help determine how to proceed with legal documentation needed to pursue dual citizenship. We started in one direction, and she and her team were great at communications and documenting my needs. Ms. Ranieri's updated knowledge of the courts' mind on our tactical approach caused a directional change mid stream that eventually led to a successful outcome, albeit in a different way that originally expected. I can only sing the praises of Ms. Ranieri and her indispensable legal staff to get my job done. Tante grazie, Signora Ranieri!

My family and I have been working with Caterina for the last few years on a complicated case for Italian dual citizenship. Throughout the entire process Caterina was professional, polite, and always worked in our best interest with proficiency and care.Being unfamiliar with the legal process can be overwhelming and Caterina always brought clarity to the complexity. We had many hurdles along the way and she always had a good strategy to overcome the issues. She was clear and considerate in her communication to us and to our other legal advisors.We highly recommend Caterina for her legal services, her personal attention to us and for going above and beyond to see the job through.Thanks Caterina!!!

Caterina Ranieri and her great team helped us with obtaining records required for Italian Dual Citizenship from the State of NY that could only be obtained with a court order. What seems like a simple request was more complicated than it appears on the surface. Her legal advice and guidance through the process were extremely helpful in getting the outcome we needed. Her team was always great with responding to questions along the process. We feel that we were very fortunate to have found Caterina and highly recommend her services.

Had the pleasure of working with Caterina and her colleague, Franck. They spent 30 minutes on the phone explaining exactly how I could help my daughter get her Italian citizenship. The information I had beforehand was completely convoluted and confusing. They helped me understand exactly what I needed to do, which turned out to be a lot easier than what I previously knew. They did not try to get my business, rather just gave me advice as friends. I can’t think them enough and highly recommend them to anybody who needs help in obtaining foreign citizenship.

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 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.

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 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.
