Hi I'm planning to go to Spain or Italy to get my Italian citizenship so I'm looking a lawyer specialized in Italian citizenship.
Does somebody knows someone serious and responsible?

Luigi's name comes up every now and again on this and other forums. I don't recall anyone ever reporting that they actually have used him or what the results may have been.

here is what he wrote to me about his services. let me know what you think guys.



thanks for your attention in our legal services.

The quickest way to get the italian citizenship having an italian ancestors is to apply in italy.
We do not assist in applying in the italian consulate abroad.
In italy we assist to apply in Bologna, where is located our firm.

By italian law it is not necessary to apply where it was born the italian ancestor.

OUR SERVICES
Checking the documents to apply for the italian citizenship before to come in italy.
Booking an accomodation before to come in italy.
Go with the client to every italian public office, advising him in the further steps of the citizenship process till he has got the italian passport.

TIME THAT IS NECESSARY TO STAY IN ITALY
It is necessary to stay extimately 2 or 3 days to ask the residence in the Comune, and get the residence control from the local police, in a house / room we will rent for you.
After the client get the residence control he can give us a power of attorney to represent him in the citizenship process till he gets the italian nationality, so usually it is enough to make only one trip to Italy.

Please note that in very few cases it was required the presence of the client in the Comune also after the residence control.

GET THE ITALIAN PASSPORT
When the citizenship is registered, if you like to receive the passport in the italian consulate of your country, we send you the italian citizenship certificate to get it.
If you prefer to get the passport in Italy, we can go together to the italian police.

TIME TO GET THE CITIZENSHIP
The process will extimately take around 4 months

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED TO GET THE CITIZENSHIP

Birth, marriage and certificate of naturalization (or certificate of “no recordâ€

Ciao Sonsolesg,

Any reason you don't want to use Luigi? I have rolled around the idea of applying in Italy and am wondering if you see a red flag or something that is keeping you wary of Luigi.

It seems to me to be very costly considering that the applicant still has to do the bulk of the work...

I can understand hiring an attorney for cases where the applicant is challenging a facet of the law (such as the "1948 rule" where Luigi claims to have had some success), but not for routine jus sanguinis situations.

Yeah, I suppose you're both right. 2,000 Euro does seem high for something that you can do at a local consulate.

if there are errors on the documents or you cant find the listed acceptable ones I.E only can find military record. It might be nice to have someone fight for you! that is the only reason I am considering it. But please if anyone has names of lawyers keep posting because I am interested in alternatives to.

I believe this lawyer has been mentioned frequently on www.expatsinitaly.com You may want to ask about him there, because I believe some have had direct experience with him.

In order to apply in Italy, you must be a legal resident. However, most people other than some retirees who meet the guaranteed income requirements without performing work in Italy, cannot qualify for an Elective Residence Visa issued by a Consulate in the USA.

But Luigi can establish a temporary legal residency for you while you're in Italy as a tourist. If you have all of your papers in order and an extra $2,000 to spare, it might be a good idea to check out this option rather than waiting two years for an appointment at a Consulate in the USA.
