  • 19 October 2018 - Thank you so much for the help with my residence visa. I did get the visa! You were instrumental in obtaining the health insurance, general advice, and the tip that I should have a ticket ready. Thank you. Grazie.

  • 1 September 2018 - Milione grazie a tutti voi! With all of your help and guidance our visa interview yesterday went very well. The clerk who reviewed our documents was very pleased with the way we had organized them. As per your guidance, we arranged a separate set of documents for each of us; each category was in its own individual labeled file folder with the name of the applicant written above the contents list. The clerk said all documents were in order and indicated that there should be no problem with our application and that we should have an answer by the middle of September. Grazie, for your help with getting the lease properly written and registered. Un complimento per te, our "landlord" said you are a very nice person after speaking with you on the telephone! Grazie, your filing for our Codices Fiscales was brilliant! The clerk was very impressed that we already had them at the interview, we believe that it showed sincere intent. Grazie, for your follow up telephone call this morning. It was most kind of you to inquire about our experience yesterday. Hai reso quello che avrebbe potuto essere un incubo un'esperienza piacevole.

  • 19 June 2018 - Thank you so much for all of your help! I had no idea it would take so long when we first spoke. But based on my last trip to Soriano a couple weeks ago, we are one of only 2 or 3 non-residents to purchase property in this town. I am certain that we wouldn’t have been able to do it without your services. Thank you again for helping us purchase our vacation property in Italy! We would be happy to be a reference to any future clients.

  • 16 May 2018 - Thank you again for your professional assistance with the purchase process of our Italian home. You and your firm were wonderful to work with and made a complex process easy for us.

    C.R., Martinsburg, West Virginia, USA
  • 2 May 2018 - Thank you for being so precise and clear with your response and with the entire process. I have no regrets in hiring Studio Legale Metta and it is my intention when I move to Italy to help non-Italians buy property in Italy by referring them to your firm. I can go to Italy and sleep at night knowing everything is fine with the property purchase and no issues will arise.

    C.C., Vancouver, Canada
  • 6 February 2018 - This is wonderful.  Thank you so very much for all of your assistance in completing the probate for my father and assisting in the sale of the house.

    M.T., Saint Leonard, Maryland, USA
  • 19 January 2018 - I wanted to let you know that the appointment [at the Italian Consulate] went as smooth as silk. The woman looked at me at one point and said, “well you have certainly done your homework!”. Everything you suggested I initially give them was all that they wanted. It was perfect. We watched four out of the five people ahead of us be told to get the proper documentation, make another appointment and come back. We couldn’t have nailed it the first time without your guidance in both the application process and the documents you obtained on our behalf in Italy. It feels wonderful to have our application successfully submitted.

    K.P., New York, NY, USA
  • 18 January 2018 – I decided to personally write a note to thank you for all you have done. I was beginning to think this case would never come to an end. However I always believed in the Metta team. They are truly an exceptional and professional organization. I would not have worked with a group any other way. I appreciate all of your and the team’s efforts.
