I am so fortunate to have David as my lawyer, under such a special period for all the immigrants. David is truly amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable, experienced, attentive and patient. He cares about your case and has great compassion for the applicants. He replies e-mails and phones promptly, answers all the questions in replies and during meetings. He never charges for extra phone hours, only charge the bill according to the contract. The pricing is really reasonable. I could see the real integrity and heart of a respectable American lawyer.

Before I decided to hire David as my immigration attorney, I made thorough research online and I can say that I don’t regret a second that I made the right choice to choose him to represent me as my immigration attorney to apply for my green card. From day one, he was very helpful and patient. I asked him lots of questions during the application process and he provided me always great advice. I am definitely recommending David to every person who needs legal advice. He was very helpful.

Mr. Katona helped us well prepared our AOS interview, and gave us tons of recommendations. He’s not only professional but also very friendly and patient. He listened to our concerns, answered all our questions and eased our anxiety. He went to the interview with us and our case approved on the spot. He’s definitely the best immigration lawyer in the city. If you need an immigration attorney, Mr. Katona is the right person to talk with.

Amazing lawyer, absolutely amazing. His communication is on point and responds to emails promptly. If you need actual advice regardless of what immigration concerns you might have trust that he has an answer for it. Really compassionate about his clients. I give Mr. Katona and absolute 10-star rating. Katona for NY Governor 🙂 Thank you, Sir, for being a splendid lawyer and continuing to help other immigrants achieve their dreams.

David was an excellent lawyer to work with. He was very knowledgeable about immigration laws and put together a thorough package to submit to immigration. He was open, honest, and professional. He never over promised anything but had a confident and calm demeanor. I knew that my case was in good hands. Additionally, David was extremely responsive. I could shoot him a quick email and he would get right back to me. I give David my highest recommendation. Thank you for your help!

This review is a long time due. After years of struggle from one lawyer to another, I finally came across David’s profile on Avvo by searching on google. I remember my case was so messed up by my previous lawyer that all I needed was just another opinion ( i was desperate ). I called the office and David spoke with me briefly and advised me to go meet with him. After I explained the situation I decided to proceed with him. There are many attorneys out there but believe me, I have gone perhaps in over 50 offices for consultations most of them don’t even pay attention to your story case. I am sure they have a million things going on but no offense to many attorneys out there good or bad, most times you are just a dollar bill to them. David listened very carefully to what said, took notes and explained my options. He explained the fees upfront exactly how things should be done. My green card application was through my husband whom I have a baby boy but believe it or not my whole process took almost 2 years. I can’t even explain the back and forth interviews while I was pregnant, my info pass appointments, etc. However, I was able to communicate with David and his Associate Holly 90% of the time via email (due to my crazy work schedule) and they were as helpful as if I were to be at their office face to face. I highly recommend David to anyone out there who needs a case solved and not just thrown out there with the rest of the files. Thank you, David and the team. I am so happy my Green Card got finally approved.

David Katona is a very knowledgeable lawyer who will listen and study your case carefully to ensure the best immigration route for you. Not only was he able to prepare and guide us on obtaining two E-2 visas but he managed to favor our situation so much so that we got one 4 year visa and another 5-year visa in our first attempt. He was always there when we needed him although we were sometimes at a 3 – 12-hour time difference and made us feel very comfortable through the process. We highly recommend David and look forward to working with him again in the future.

I am overjoyed to come back here and give attorney Katona yet another outstanding review. He confidently guided me and I took what other attorneys considered too big of the risk and I am back with GC!!!

I’ve been working with David for the past year with the filing of my O1 visa. A friend recommended me to him. David helped me in the transition of getting acquainted with US law (I’m Italian) and supported me throughout the application process.

I have appreciated his professionalism and patience; David was very good at understanding what exact reasons would help USCIS understand my case. My application was challenging and his expert advice helped me accomplish my goal.

I highly recommend David Katona as an immigration lawyer, I’m so thankful to him for his amazing job.
