Simone Bertollini, Esq.

After graduating with a law degree from the Tor Vergata University of Rome in Italy, I moved to the United States and began law school all over again. Instead of taking a Master's degree program of law like other foreign lawyers like me, I enrolled in a Juris Doctor degree at the University of Kansas, School of Law, because I wanted to get the most complete legal education. Upon my graduation, I am now one of the few lawyers with full academic qualifications in both the U.S. and Italy.

I practice law because I enjoy defending the rights of people who are in need. When I was in Italy, I first decided to go to law school because my family was involved in a complicated civil law suit. During that time, I was so disappointed and dissatisfied with the services of their lawyers that I wanted to be admitted into the legal profession so that I could set a higher standard for the practice of law.

Getting my clients the best result possible is always my goal, with no exceptions. When I take a case, I treat it like it was my own case. This is probably why I win cases that other lawyers would not even take in the first place. In the past few years, I successfully represented clients that had come to me after being left with no hopes by other lawyers. I am not afraid of putting hours and hours a of work into every client's case, if required.

I decided to focus especially on immigration law after experiencing, as an immigrant of this country, great difficulties in renewing my work visa. This was despite the fact that I have much higher qualifications than many other American lawyers. I believe that every immigrant deserves a chance to fulfill his or her American dream, just like I did.

I am fluent in Italian, Spanish, and English, which allows me communicate directly with my clients without the assistance of an interpreter.

Besides the Courts of the States of New York and New Jersey, I am admitted to practice in a number of Federal courts, allowing me to appeal criminal and immigration cases, if necessary. These include the United States Court of Appeals for the First, Second, Third and Eleventh Circuit, the United States District Court for the Eastern, Western, and Southern Districts of New York, and the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey.
