“I had no more hope and I met Silvina. I can say that she saved me. Patiente, kind, extremely professional, she made me feel safe and did all she could to help my case. I just obtained my Green Card, and without her it would not had happen. I am forever thankful.”
“We, as Ethica Wines, fully endorse Ms. Silvina Tondini & Tondini Law. She is our most valued point of reference to represent us for any immigration or Visa matters for both our company and staff members (future/ present). She is very professional and a committed attorney, with her extensive knowledge, experience and determination. She is quick and keeps track of every single detail in the process until everything got finalized. We’ve had multiple successful cases using her services and shall continue to doing so for any future requests.”
Francesco Ganz, Ethica Wines, Chief Executive Officer
“Ms. Tondini provided excellent legal services. She successfully guided my wife and I through the process of a fiancée visa (K1) and a green card (i.e., conditional lawful permanent resident) in this exceedingly complex immigration system. All of our questions were patiently answered, and always in a timely manner. In short, she helped us navigate small details and major questions for over a year as we moved to the United States and became settled. And, it bears repeating, my wife’s green card has arrived in the mail, so the results are there too. We would undoubtedly seek out the firm’s legal services should we need further representation in immigration matters.”
Joseph W. and Juliana W.
“Attorney Silvina Tondini has been our corporate counsel for the last five years. We are a wine distribution company in constant need of legal representation. Silvina Tondini has successfully drafted and negotiated several agreements for us, including assets purchase agreements, importation, and distributor agreements. She has also worked with our financial department to obtain full payments from debtors. Ms. Tondini has a deep understanding of the industry and trademark law. She has made herself available to us to answer questions with short notice and her representation has been extraordinary. We are very pleased with her services and recommend Ms. Tondini for all corporate law and business matters.”
“Silvina Tondini is extraordinary! I cannot express in words how grateful we are for all services she provided. She is phenomenal! She is sincere, honest and transparent; you do not find in today's immigration. She helped us get papers for my mom and sister. She is honest and treats each client with a respect and dignity. Silvina Tondini is excellent and my family and I recommend her everywhere we go."
"Silvina is simply terrific, full of energy, very passionate, proactive and most importantly takes complete ownership of the tasks/matters on hand. She has done some of the difficult, complicated tasks for me/us in a very efficient and effective way. I would recommend her highly."
Ajay Sarkar, CEO
"Dear Ms. Tondini: Thank you for helping me with this transition, and for guiding me through the L1A visa process. I look forward to working with you soon! I am happy to be your client and happy that I got the opportunity to work with you. You are a superb and caring attorney."
Richard R. (Business Investor)
"Silvina is very knowledgeable and talented. We cannot express how thankful we are to have worked with her. She helped my mom obtain her U.S residency and we are forever grateful!"
"My husband and I couldn't be happier with the professionalism, communication and dedication from Tondini Law regarding our case. We were guided step by step through the process, what to expect if his case was approved/denied etc., our lawyer was available to answer all of the questions in a timely manner even though we are on opposite coasts."
“Dear Ms. Tondini, It was my pleasure to talk to you. I was so happy that I found you, because your services were really accurate and professional, avoiding me to make the mistake to send my E2 visa application in this condition. Also, during the conversation, I felt a person in the other side of the line, who really cares about my case.”
JNB, Italian investor- E2 visa
“Ms. Tondini represented us in a complex L1A new office and throughout the visa extension and later Green Card applications. The implementation and creativity of her planning and strategies were impeccable. She listens to her clients and works with them in every step of the case. She thoroughly plans and guides clients in the implementation of the plan. She counseled us throughout the process, explained the pros and cons, and we followed her advice step by step. We had some business setbacks, consulted with Ms. Tondini, and she successfully handled the issues during the visa processes. After three long processes (New Office, Extension and Green Card), my family and I are permanent residents of the US and we continue managing our businesses and investments. Ms. Tondini is deeply knowledgeable about immigration and business law. She knows how to represent and advise foreign investors with their visa and businesses. She genuinely cares about her clients. I highly recommend her. Working with her has been one of the best things that happened to us upon our arrival to the US.”
Rony Pradhan (International Business Operations Manager – L1A)
“Silvina represented me in applying for EB-1C visa and subsequent green card. I am an international executive and Chief Executive Officer of a U.S. based biomedical company. Silvina was detailed oriented and guided me during the process. We obtained visa approval without delays or request for additional evidence in a relatively short time. She did an impeccable job, and I am pleased with the quality of her work. Our company subsequently retained Silvina to represent one of international managers in applying for EB-1C and green card. The case was also approved without delays or complications. Our company is engaged in manufacturing and international trade. Silvina understands our fast-paced environment and her results are aligned with our timing and needs.”
Henry Sand (Chief Executive Officer EB1C – Argentina)
“I am the Business Operations Manager in the U.S. of an international investment organization. My partners and I were referred to Silvina by past clients of her. We immediately started working with Silvina after the first meeting. She is confident and knows how to work with and guide foreign investors. Silvina came up with a business plan and guided us on each step of the visa process. Her vision and advice are comprehensive and in line with our goals and resources. Her work is thorough and delivers quality of work. After our initial L1A visa New Office was approved, we had a few business setbacks and had to change directions. In the midst of these business changes, COVID-19 pandemic imposed another layer of challenges: delays and closings coupled with decrease in sales and personnel reduction. Silvina acted quickly and advised us how to navigate this challenging time. The L1A visa extension application was submitted during the worst part of the pandemic but Silvina successfully handled it and despite the “stones on the road” the visa was approved. We are now working with Silvina on the green card process and have the outmost confidence on her ability and expertise. Silvina strives to succeed and get your case approved."
Ricardo Raposo (Business Operations Manager – L1A- South Africa)
“My family and I could not be happier with Tondini Law and Silvina Tondini. She is exceptional! She cares about her clients and has been with us every step of the way, even during COVID 19 and all the delays. From the initial conversation, she was very meticulous and asked me all kind of questions. Then, she started talking and guiding me on possible via options. Based on my interests and goals, I made the right visa type decision. I applied for E2 visa and was approved! My family and I are grateful to have met Silvina and to choose her as our attorney. She gave us the right advise, explained the pros and cons, based on our goals. She’s been with us from start to finish, and specially during the waiting time due to COVID 19 delays.”
Lewis Clark (Business Manager- E2 Visa- Canada)
“After being in the US for 18 years in E2 visa, I thought I knew everything about this visa. Silvina was referred to me by a friend and he was right. She is on point, concise, and spots issues like nobody before. I had my first E2 visa in early 2000 and now I just needed a renewal. My company, and petitioner, is a holding company for other entities. Silvina was able to correct some issues other attorneys had missed with prior applications. My visa was approved without delay. I highly recommend Silvina for all your immigration needs.”
Carlo Bazzoli (E-2 Investor Visa – Italy)
