    • I recommend Thanh Doan.

    Mr. Doan represented me very well, she was affable and kept me at ease during our conversation. I felt the meeting was unrushed and we discussed at length my particular issue. She was forthright and very straightforward in her guidance which is refreshing. She spoke with conviction and was frank in her advice. She sets the bar high for success but she works to ensure that her clients find success. She is very client focused and wants to see her clients succeed rather than get a check. I am highly appreciative for her advice and I am looking forward for her representation in the future.

    • I do not recommend Thanh Doan.

    I was disappointed with this attorney. While knowledgeable about many aspects of immigration law, she seemed to be out of date with immigration issues relating to Mexican nationals. Also, paid $275 for a 1 hour consultation, of which I only used about 45 minutes of her time before ending the call. A couple of days later I thought of an additional question that I wanted to ask and emailed her, which I think could have been answered in 5 minutes or less, and she replied that I would have to pay another $275 to get that question answered.

      Lawyer Comment:

      I am very are sorry that after your consultation with me you came to the belief that my knowledge surrounding Mexican nationals was inadequate and further that you did not receive a good value from the flat fee initial consultation. I can see how with those beliefs you would feel disappointed.

      Even though we did not end up representing you, I remember our consultation, and the reasons we did not work together. I want you to know that in the year that has passed since we spoke, country conditions and and immigration relief possibilities for many including, Mexican nationals have changed dramatically. If your issue is ongoing, it is important to be actively working with counsel that remains abreast of the changes in the law.

      I also want you to know that I take all feedback very seriously. Negative feedback, while frustrating, is ultimately an opportunity to improve. With that in mind, I have examined the series of communications that occurred over multiple weeks stemming from the initial consultation. I have determined that in future consultations, if more than one party has relevant information and/or will be impacted by decisions to be made, it is best to require that person's presence at the initial consultation either in person or by phone. While this may delay the scheduling of the consultation or even prevent someone from consulting with us, we believe it is necessary to allow us to have a complete understanding of everyone's concerns and position on the various issues and thus, allow us to address all the issues and concerns in a more comprehensive manner.

    • I recommend Thanh Doan.
    • I hired Thanh 1-3 years ago.
    • Thanh handled my Divorce & Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with no lawyers.

    I came to Ms. Doan for help with my divorce. I was thinking about doing it myself since I don't have any children involved. However, I'm glad that I have obtained her legal services because the separation agreement and divorce filing that she has done for me made the case went smoothly and fast!

    She was very detail-oriented and thorough in drafting my separation agreement and preparation for the divorce hearing. She was very pro-active and kept on top of my paperwork process. She kept an eye out and made sure that I get all the paperwork done correctly. I felt very secured and prepared having her guidance in my divorce process. I definitely recommend her services.

    • I recommend Thanh Doan.
    • I hired Thanh 1-3 years ago.
    • Thanh handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    Ms. Van Doan helped me with a situation involving possible marriage fraud. As a United States Citizen we are extremely vulnerable to immigration fraud. Ms. Van Doan helped me drafting a letter to the USCIS, Dept. of State and FDNS explaining my situation. She was very prompt in delivering the first draft of the letter and subsequent edits. She also kept me informed on various matters that were involved in my case and took personal responsibility in keeping us safe. I will always recommend her for immigration related matters that involve family. And as a caution, please do not file I-130 and sign I-864 form without evaluating all the possibilities and consulting a responsible attorney. If you do, you are possibly signing your life away. As a United states Citizen, you are the most vulnerable one when it comes to immigration. As an immigrant who became a citizen, I have come to this realization with great sadness. Please try to engage an attorney early in the process before I-130 is filed.

    • I recommend Thanh Doan.

    My wife needed to renew her Visa and we decided that retaining legal counsel would be helpful. We chose Van Doan after reviewing her experience and several positive endorsements. The qualities evidenced in those endorsements—attention to detail and responsiveness—were both important to us.

    Van continually lent clarity, thoroughness and insight at every stage of the process—from affidavit and document gathering to interview preparation—and brought spirited toughness and honesty at the precise moments we needed it.

    Our case has reached its successful conclusion, and we have Van to thank for it.

    • I recommend Thanh Doan.
    • I hired Thanh 1-3 years ago.
    • Thanh handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 6-10 lawyers.

    I am glad that I had Ms Doan as my attorney for my complicated immigration & divorce case. I was on a 2 year conditional permanent residency and had to come to a divorce before I was able to remove the condition on my green card. I had a very tight deadline to adjust my status as my case was complicated by a pending divorce to a rather vindictive and uncooperative ex-spouse but the strategy that Ms Doan devised allowed me to get divorce promptly and adjust my status without delay. Ms Doan is an excellent lawyer that you can count on. As an immigrant in a foreign country, you definitely need a lawyer like Ms Doan. She was always there whenever I was in panic and whenever I needed help. She always responded to my emails and my calls promptly whereas other attorneys did not. She is the best attorney I have ever had – VERY RELIABLE! Ms Doan successfully had the condition on my green card removed and now I am a legal lawful permanent resident! Thank you Ms Doan. You are the best!

    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Exceptional! I am very pleased with the service I received from Mrs. Doan. The legalities of my case were a bit overwhelming; however, Mrs Doan's knowledge of the law, her candor, and personable approach gave me the confidence that things were likely to transpire as she said they would. I am very please and would use her again.
