Ava. Riccardo Virga and the Italian Lawyer have been helping my sister and I for a number of years now with the very many issues we faced in getting our elderly and disabled fathers affairs in order. Our father lived in Italy and we are both in the UK. Our father sadly passed away this year and Riccardo was on hand at every moment to help us navigate through the bureaucracy of Italian law at this difficult time.We cannot recommend The Italian Lawyer and Riccardo enough. Forever helpful, flexible and professional. There is just no way we could have coped with everything we have had to face over the last few years without Riccardo at our side. Thank you.

Ricardo and Gaia made my purchase in Italy a much lower stress event than I had planned for. Their knowledge of the process, the offers, Fiscal codes and closing took a lot of the unknown out of a purchase. Invaluable!
