Laurie Wu is fantastic. My wife Yuqin and I hired her to do my wife's K1 visa a few years ago. My wife is from China and it is a difficult and timely process. Laurie's expertise is amazing. Last year we hired her to help with my step-son's visa application as we have the utmost confidence in her. Yesterday was my step-son's interview and he was approved without any delays or issues. Laurie always returns emails and calls immediately. She speaks Chinese which is very helpful in our situation. She is very precise and on top of things. I deal with a few attorneys and most are not efficient like Laurie.
We are very fortunate to have Laurie to represent us in getting a K-1 VISA. Alina is an Ukrainian Citizen and she does not speak English very well, but Laurie had translator to bridge the communication gap when taking to Alina. Laurie's attention to details is impeccable … Laurie always send a very clear instructions on what to do, and more importantly with the estimated timeline and next steps … Laurie also do a few things that I thought was genius and very helpful for her customers like us … I can not share her trade secrets on this public forum, so you just have to hire her to represent you if you want to find out. Trust me, you will not regret it. We feel that Laurie is sincerely care about us, and it shows when she always respond to our questions in a very timely fashion and more importantly make us in ease throughout the process. Last but not least, Laurie keeps checking with us and update us on our status, even checking with us on the VISA interview date on how the interview goes. We highly recommend Laurie for anyone that needs a immigration VISA. We also ask Laurie to represent us in getting tourist VISA for Alina’s mother to attend our wedding. Alina’s mother received a 10-year tourist VISA.

I immigrated to the U.S. from Canada on a K-1 Visa. My husband and I retained Laurie after the fact to guide us through the process of my permanent residence application because I had overstayed my Visa and we wanted to make sure that we did everything right. We were intimidated by the application process as we were somewhat overwhelmed with all the requirements, and we can't imagine that anyone could have helped us through it better than Laurie did.
She guided us through all the steps with the utmost of professionalism, patience and compassion, and she kept the light at the end of the tunnel shining for us throughout. She always made herself available to answer any questions or explain anything we did not quite understand or needed clarification on. She completed all the official forms on our behalf before having us review and sign them and she lifted a lot of the burden from us. We truly feel like had it not been for Laurie, we would have surely been pulling our hair out had we attempted the process on our own.
She kept excellent records on our case and was able to access anything within minutes of me asking on the occasion that I misplaced my own copies of certain forms or supporting documentation. Her excellent knowledge of the immigration process, organization and attention to detail kept us in order at all times.
We know for a fact that Laurie made the whole process a LOT less painful and we are thankful and grateful for everything she did for us.
Because of Laurie, we were completely confident in advance of our final interview at the Immigration office last week. We felt that everything was order, we were totally prepared and we did not fear any surprises. The interview could not have gone any better. Smooth as butter, really. My green card is now on its way.
Laurie is an fantastic immigration lawyer and I would recommend her to anyone, anytime.
Laurie Wu is both professional and incredibly personal in her service, the best of both worlds and just what my wife and I needed in her immigration and green card process. She pays attention to all the details and make sure that you understand them, explaining in a very kind and personal manner. Without all of her help I would have been completely lost in all the paperwork. There were also unusual peculiarities in the timeline of our case and when we needed the green card by a certain date, which was made more difficult by my wife's affiliations in China. But with Laurie's help we got the green card just in time when we needed it! Highly recommended and will work with her again when we need to remove the conditions on my wife's green card in two years.
Laurie helped us with two cases, one for my son's US citizenship and my fiancée's visa application. She was very experienced in our matter, Laurie was there whenever we had a question and replied prompted with all the information we needed. She handled our case very well and followed through till the very end. We are really glad we had Laurie help us through this and highly recommend her. Thank you!!
Laurie Wu has been my wife’s and I’s immigration attorney since we filed for her K-1 fiancé via about three years ago. I spent months researching, calling, and vetting numerous immigration attorneys as my wife’s case was difficult due to her membership in the CCP. I finally found Laurie and after an initial consultation with her I felt comfortable to hire her to handle out case. That was one the best decisions I have made in my life, not only did she explain clearly the expectations for the immigration process to my wife and I, she was always available to quickly answer questions or concerns we had about and during the process. Laurie helped us in getting the large amount of paperwork and documents in order and reviewed to make sure we had all the documents since missing just one could cause major delays. Suffice to say, our K-1 visa process went very smoothly considering my wife was CCP, Laurie even took the time to speak with my wife before the interview and make sure she had all the documents in order and was prepared for any questions the visa office would potentially ask. Since we were so happy with the way Laurie handled our K-1 case, we hired her to assist with our green card application. Laurie was extremely helpful in assisting my wife in getting her employment authorization, travel document, and green card. She even spent a few hours of her evening to skype with us to prepare us for the green card interview and make sure we had all of our documents – this really helped calm our nerves before a potentially stressful situation but the preparation for it with Laurie really made the interview go very smoothly. My wife and I highly recommend using Laurie Wu’s services for your immigration needs – I really would not trust anyone else nor can I imagine my wife and I doing this process without Laurie’s professional guidance and help. We can honestly say that for any future immigration processes we will be calling Laurie Wu.

Dealing with Laurie is always a great pleasure. She already helped us twice with paperwork: with K1-visa for me and then with Guest visas for my parents. And we will definitely hire her again for further steps in my case and guest visas for other members of my family. She is very organized, clear in instructions, covering every tiny detail; making sure everything is understood in a right way and paperwork filled out correctly. She is always available via e-mail, phone, skype. She is not afraid to meet tight deadlines. Great follow-up. She is very open, friendly, willing to help. Thank you, Laurie!!!
My name is Tony and I contacted Laurie Wu about five months ago to help me and my fiancée Min Li work with a fiancée visa. Laurie took every effort to be there to answer all our questions and help us every step of the way. I highly recommend this lawyer to anyone who is thinking about getting maybe a K-1 visa or someone who might need a green card. She is kind and caring about our needs. She knows how to get things done and is very professional.
Many people may have the feeling that gaining trust is so difficult—it may take years on building a trusted relationship, while losing trust is so easy—probably just over seconds. I don’t think it would be ever the case for Laurie. Laurie gained my trust when I received her first email in 2012 instructing me in great detail about how to be prepared for going through the fiancée visa process, and we worked for several months since then until I received my visa to the US. After I moved in the US, I had some difficulties, and I felt so helpless and hopeless, luckily I found Laurie when I had hardest time in my life. Although I was not Laurie’s customer and Laurie was very busy at the time when I found her, Laurie spoke to me on the phone and wrote me emails, I was so moved also impressed by her caring heart, inspiring words and great respect on people. I made up my mind immediately that I would like to hire Laurie again when I need to go through immigration process two years later, and I did. What Laurie did actually was far beyond an immigration attorney would do, for she cares people more than anything else, and she always provide quality service:
1. Sense of urgency and work efficiency
Laurie always provides quick response no matter what I asked for. She worked out everything for me very efficiently. In the event of tight schedule that prevented her from writing back to me with detailed information, she would give me a quick update letting me know when she would write me again with more details.
2. Professionalism and knowledgeable
Laurie is very professional and knowledgeable. She always gives me very clear answers no matter what questions asked, or no matter what concerns I had. When she was working on my case, she paid great attention to all details and checked everything very carefully to assure the accuracy of the information.
3. Accountability and reliability
Laurie is very accountable and kept her commitment. To assure my application could be submitted as quick as possible to unload my burdens, Laurie even didn’t take day off like many people did during the holiday season until the last minutes when she needed to catch up the Christmas Eve with her family.
4. Respect on people, support and encouragement
When I reconnected and talked to Laurie, I was unemployed, Laure didn’t judge me and her words were so encouraging and inspiring, she always has faith that I could go back to career even I myself found it so difficult in such a new country. Her positive attitude influence me to be positive, and after I went back to career, she provided me with so strong support through her loving heart and doing more beyond the scope of her responsibility—she even helped me with dealing with car accident and other personal stuff.
5. Diversity and inclusive
Laurie speaks English and Cantonese, and some Mandarin as well. Culture difference may add to people’s difficulty for communication. Laurie has excellent knowledge of cultures cross nations and has great experience in dealing with culture difference. I had zero problem of communicating with Laurie, actually in the course of time I have been enjoying more and more working with Laurie together on my immigration case.
In addition to her communication skills with me, Laurie has shown effective communication with immigration office. She rescheduled our finger-print when the original date and places didn’t work well for us, and made things very easy for us.
I agree that building trust usually is not easy, but Laurie is the attorney I can put full trust on and she is the one who I would like to refer to my friends or anyone else who needs immigration help. After having gone through everything, I simply felt relief that I found Laurie and had her help.
My son is born in the United States and we last saw each other about 9 years ago, when he was 13. I will soon get to see him thanks to the help of Laurie. Laurie is a responsible and professional attorney. She carefully explained the visa process to me. When I had any questions, she gave a detailed reply and responded quickly. She is an attorney who deserves a recommendation. I hope to be able to meet her when I arrive in the United States.
