What an immigration lawyer
can do for you

For those who find themselves in Italy for either professionalacademic, or personal reasons, navigating the Italian legal and administrative system can be a daunting task. In these situations, a one-size-fits-all approach will not be able to provide the personalized guidance you need in order to achieve your goals. Informed legal advice in fact, needs to be grounded not merely on legal matters, but must consider the overlap of both fiscal and administrative regulations. These different areas of law need to be considered and assessed cohesively in order to design the most fitting approach to address a client’s individual needs.
Studio Legale Giovannelli brings to its clients the value of a family legacy. Father, mother, and son, thanks to their variety of skills and expertise, can provide an extensive reach of assistance.

Giusto Giovannelli

As a lawyer specializing in immigration, Giusto’s work deals with a very critical side of law practice that can often be overlooked. Given the infamous red tape that comes with Italian bureaucracy, Giusto’s work is particularly important for helping to navigate those who are unfamiliar with the immigration processes and laws specific to this country. Giusto approaches his work with clients in a holistic way, and makes it a point to understand a client’s full, relevant background and current situation before making an advisement. 

A profound and important distinction that should be made between Giusto and the typical perception of a lawyer, is that he rarely starts his work in litigation. This means roughly 90% of his clients come to him, not in the process of legal action and court proceedings, but rather because they are looking for counsel on how best to go about a difficult and nuanced process without incurring any of that litigation along the way.

Gianluca Giovannelli

Founding the firm “Studio Legale Associato Giovannelli”, he has strongly wanted to create a “family business” to have the opportunity to share with wife and son his professional interests and skills.

Claudia Giustini

Born in Ancona (Marche Region), is resident in Florence since 1970, where graduated at the local University first in Russian Language and Literature (1976) and then in Law (1996).

Lawyer since 2000, she enrolled in the College of Advocates of Florence (Albo degli Avvocati di Firenze) in 2009 when, after several years of school teaching (Russian and English languages), and of translations, she decided to collaborate with her husband Gianluca Giovannelli and her son Giusto Giovannelli as a partner of the firm Studio Legale Associato Giovannelli.

Besides the law, her main interests are languages, music, art and charity. She is a member of the Management Board of Foemina Foundation which deals with the protection of the health of women and babies.

A simple way to take measure of a country is to look at how many want in.. And how many want out.
