Angelo Paparelli: Immigration Law Superstar

By Brian Chase on September 10, 2013 - No comments

Angelo Paparelli is an attorney you can count on. He is the only attorney that I have ever sent people to that need immigration assistance. Mr. Paparelli is an immigration law SuperStar.

I have known Angelo Paparelli for more than 20 years. I can attest that he is not only a great talent but a man of his word. He does what he says and says what he does. He is a man that you can count on when you need an attorney that has your best interest at heart.

Angelo has been practicing immigration law for decades with an outstanding record of success. He is one of the most skilled immigration attorneys in the nation. Not only is he an immigration law author, he teaches other attorneys how to practice immigration law.

The most important character traits of what I consider to be a SuperStar attorney are:

  • Stands by his word
  • Impeccable integrity
  • Committed to the client’s goals
  • Tenacious in reaching his client’s goals

Without these traits to go along with exceptional skill, the skill is wasted.

Mr. Paparelli’s passion shines through in the way he conducts business and in the way he treats his clients- with compassion, integrity, empathy, professionalism, commitment and honesty.

Angelo Paparelli is one of the best immigration lawyers, if not the best, in this country and I would recommend him to anyone that is in need of an outstanding and trustworthy immigration lawyer.

The Family Survival Guide To A New Driver

Here at Bisnar | Chase we like to spotlight other attorneys around the nation who have created positive change through giving and being selfless. Mike Schafer is one of those people.

Mr. Schafer is not just a true southern gentleman he is a true humanitarian and public servant. Recently I wrote an article about Mike as an attorney and today I am writing about Mike as a father and an advocate for safe teen driving.

As an attorney, Mike has experience with clients who have suffered a lot of pain and anguish due to auto accidents. Mike also has experience with teen drivers as his own children are now drivers.

Mike Schafer along with his daughter Rachael have written a book called “The Family Survival Guide to a New Driver”

The book consists of 2 parts. One for parents; the part Mike wrote, and the other for teens, the part his daughter Rachel wrote. The book is available for purchase, but it is also available as a free download. The main goal here is to help families discuss the needs of the family as well as the new driver and address these needs from the perspective of both sides. It is also a fun and interesting read. …Read the rest »
