Why we recommend Annalee and Daniel Tostado.

They are a professional English-speaking Law firm with an honest approach.

The legal team is led by Daniel, who was born and raised in California and is both an avocat à la cour (Barreau de Paris) and an attorney-at-law (New York bar). 

They possess a deep knowledge of every category of French immigration, enabling them to expertly guide you through the system in order to secure visas and residency permits on your behalf

They will help you with translations, appointments, documentation, and more. They are great at unusual situations too.

The meeting with Annalee was outstanding. She provided a detailed explanation of the visa procedures and further clarified everything in a follow-up email. Impressively, she suggested three healthcare providers that offered services for $4,000 less than the estimates I had previously obtained. Annalee has committed to assisting with the entire process, including arranging appointments, organizing the case file, and handling the sworn translations. I am very happy for her help!

What you get in the consultation

A 40-minute consultation with a qualified Immigration lawyer over Zoom or in person

Clear advice on the best visa, residency, or citizenship route

A quote for further services should you want them.  This could be the full end-to-end visa service, residency cards, or help to settle in.

We do the vetting and continuous assessment for you.

We have lived in six countries on four continents and traveled extensively. Each time, we’ve dealt with the complexities of a new immigration system. We have had some excellent lawyers to help us out, but we also had shockingly bad experiences. We can assure you that hiring an immigration lawyer who comes up top in a Google search does not get you the best result.

Our clients continuously asked us for recommendations on good immigration lawyers. So, we developed our continuous assessment process, where we research and interview many potential immigration lawyers before we choose one to provide you with excellent service and fair pricing.

We also ask every client for feedback to ensure that service continues to be nothing but great.

We have been working with Annalee and Daniel for a while. They are efficient and professional and will quickly get your visa or citizenship sorted out without the stress.

Benefits of using Annalee and Daniel

Language Barrier: While many professionals in France speak English, there’s always a concern about potential miscommunication due to language differences, especially when dealing with intricate legal documents. Our immigration lawyer partner speaks perfect English, so you don’t need to be concerned about potential miscommunication or misunderstandings due to language differences, especially when dealing with legal documents.

Expertise in French Immigration Law: French immigration law is complex and often changes. Our French partner has comprehensive expertise in French immigration law, especially as it pertains to non-EU citizens (for Americans) and post-Brexit UK citizens.

Cost and Billing Practices: Legal services in France can vary in cost. Our monitoring and benchmarking mean you won’t be overcharged and face hidden fees or different billing practices than you’re accustomed to. And our partner will be transparent in quoting upfront.

Cultural Differences: There might be local customs, business practices, or legal formalities in France that differ from those in the U.S. or the UK. Understanding and navigating these differences is crucial. Our partner works with Expats and understands how to ensure everyone is on the same page.

Our long-term business depends on the performance of our partners.
