I've known Glen for two years and he has always been passionate about immigration law. Even before becoming a lawyer, he has been very active in the field since law school, doing volunteer work for the Legal Aid Society and clerking for Judges and law firms. His knowledge of immigration law derives from his experiences as a foreign-born citizen and keen interest in the area, and this translates to how he relates to clients, treating each case like it's his. He has represented different clients ranging from citizens of Korea, the Philippines, China, Jordan, Mexico, Mali, has accompanied clients for immigration interviews in Cleveland and Newark, and has appeared on behalf of clients for the Cleveland, Detroit, and Houston Immigration Courts. He actively posts useful immigration articles for our blog at www.sarmientoimmigration.typepad.com and is active in the Korean community. Most imporatntly, he cares for clients. I highly recommend Glen Yu to anybody in need of immigration counsel.
