25 July 2022 – I was so excited when my citizenship by marriage was awarded to me on January 25, 2022 (after 3 1/2 long years)! The joy was quickly extinguished by what became clear would be a daunting task of taking all the necessary steps to get from being in the middle of my residency process begun by another service to getting my citizenship processed and my Italian passport in my hands. I first contacted the firm I’d been using but they didn’t know what to do – but said they could charge me 25 euro an hour to see if they could figure it out. No thank you.

Two friends recommended Studio Legal Metta. I contact Nick Metta, who assured me his firm knew how to proceed. He connected me with local staff in Bari, and lickety-split we were off to the races. It still took a few months but it was an orderly process and my confused and overwhelmed little hands were held all along the way. (In true Italian theatre, the mayor of my comune was put on house arrest a week before I was to take my oath, and a sour-tempered woman at the Questura seemed to have a personal vendetta against me. But, SLM navigated it all professionally and expertly).

I recommend Studio Legale Metta WITHOUT HESITATION. I will go back to them for literally every bit of legal help I need in Italy from here on out. Postscript: The lawyers assigned to me were Antonio Cammarano and Giandomenico Murro. I worked primarily with Giandomenico. He was fantastic – warm, professional, knowledgeable and as patient as the day is long.
