I had been advised that US Immigration law is quite complicated and as a result I would want to trust my application only to an attorney that specializes in this area of the law. I found such an attorney at the Law Offices of Young Ri. As a scientist working in a very specialized area of research, I have been employed during the past three years on an H1B Visa. The positive response to my research subject encouraged me to seek permanent residence status in the USA so that I could further develop my research here. However, having only been in the US for 3 years, I needed an highly qualified attorney familiar with specific requirements for a NIW application. Ms. Ri is a professional, compassionate and hardworking lawyer who understands science as well as law. She explained the stringent requirements of this permit and the process necessary to prepare and file a compelling case. Ms. Ri immersed herself in my past publications and presentations before she would evaluate my case. She advised me and then filed my case after concluding that I met the requirements of the NIW. Her thorough, realistic and proactive attitude throughout the case was remarkable. Ms. Ri is also very responsive to the emotional side of a difficult immigration process. She remained in touch with me throughout the process and always communicated with me herself, not through her secretary. Although I would like to think that my case was special, I believe that Ms. Ri handles each of her cases with this same degree of dedication and commitment. I was very excited the evening that she called to inform me that my case had been approved. Following the approval, it took only 3 weeks to receive my green card. I highly recommend the law offices of Young Ri.
When I was hiring Young Ah Ri for my permanent residency, I thought my case will be easily processed because my accomplishment as scientist was obviously good enough. However, it was not all needed. Almost in every step for permeant residency, something unexpected took place. She helped me go through the problem I came across with all possible means. She was so experienced and full of knowledge. She even bothered herself to help me by making calls for me.
I almost gave up in the final stage when I realized one of my important records was deleted by somebody's mistake. Without her help, it was certain that I gave up and failed getting my permanent residency.
In pursuing permanent residency, what one knows and sees is not everything. There can be unexpected problems waiting for you and a well-experinced with abundant knowledge lawyer is needed. Young Ah Ri is the one you can totally rely on.
She was patient, thorough, and kept us informed throughout the entire process of applying for my spouse's green card. Everything went very smoothly and her sense of humor helped to make a stressful process more tolerable.
We initially came to her for a simple doc review and were so impressed that we decided to hire her to manage the entire case. Worth every penny.
Being a US Citizen I never believed I would ever need the services of an Attorney specializing in US Immigration and Nationality Law... to help me understand taking someone I love through the process to obtain a Green Card and navigate the road necessary to becoming a US Citizen. My wife and I are fortunate to have located Attorney Young RI.
My first impression of Attorney Ri was that she demonstrated being able to share the process and all involved so my wife and I not only came to realize this Attorney was very familiar with needed next steps once she understood our situation but "we" clearly understood next steps because of how the process was delivered to us by Attorney Ri.
Added I have to mention this first impression also immediately included she was a Professional... almost cold... but once my wife and Attorney Ri started working through the process post us hiring her we discovered a warm hearted person which "wanted" successful results... for us. Working with Attorney RI each time built trust.
We received our letter from Homeland Security congratulating my wife with becoming a permanent resident of the US, her Green Card and have Attorney Young Ri to thank for her expertise and guidance. As long as Attorney Young Ri is available we will always seek her services first.
Ermie and Steve R.
Young Ah helped me to obtain my green card. During the whole process she was extremely professional and responsive; always forward thinking. From my experience she is extremely proactive, knowledgeable in US immigration laws. In fact, my case was approved way earlier than expected. Thank you so much for all the hard work!
Young Ri is not only a very knowledgeable attorney but she is also very personable and easy to talk to. She handled my wife's case for permanent residency status. The process was very smooth and I must credit Young Ri and her work preparing the paperwork and the direction she gave us in how to handle everything. She also quickly responds to questions and emails, which is so helpful. She assisted us in preparing for the interview and represented us in the interview itself. I would highly recommend Young Ri for anyone going through the immigration process.
No fake smiles, no fancy stuff, no unnecessary self marketing.
Facts and results.
So thankful we decided to go with her.
She was sympathetic, professional, thorough and highly efficient from the start. Very detail oriented, extremely hardworking, she answered emails, texts even at late hours, better yet she demanded more and more details and information in order to build up my wife's case for permanent resident status.
She took my spouse green card petition after our previous lawyer got my wife rejected twice because of legal mistakes and his lack of professionalism.
We were just about to try our luck somewhere else, but we thought, we give it another shoot with Young Ah Ri.
Best decision we have ever made. So professional and knowledgeable, she got my wife's application approved in a record breaking 3 months! She built a bulletproof case. Immigration services haven't felt the need for an interview and no temporary green card was issued. We have received her permanent resident card in 4 months.
We highly recommend her services without any hesitation.
I went to have a consultation when my case got very complicated due to prior attorney's mistakes.
This attorney is amazing, and she has a warm heart. She was very professional and knowledgeable, and she made sure that I understood my options and updated me at each step thoroughly.
I can confidently recommend her service to those who need immigration law services.
I contacted Young as one of the attorney on my firm's legal plan list about a year ago in regards to applying for a green card for my husband. She explained the process to me and the different paths that I could take. Though my firm didn't pay for the whole process, I decided to do everything myself and forwarded the documents to her for review. Despite the fact that I wanted to do it myself, she was always courteous, responsive and made the necessary corrections with me over the phone. She was always available, responsive in a timely manner and knowledgeable. We were successfull in the process. We were not held up in the process due to incorrect information on the application and it is all because of her thorough review of the forms. I would recommend her
Young was not only excellent in her work, she went the extra mile with us and caught several problems before they came up. I'm know she was pretty busy those days, but she still was amazingly quick at responding any questions or clarifying any issues we had. She's always available (within reason) through email and you don't need to wait weeks to get things done. I can assure you that getting Young as an immigration attorney would be a guarantee of a job excellently done. What would have been a long dragging process otherwise (due to some of my special circumstances) was a relatively quick and very smooth journey. We are hiring certainly hiring her again when needed be. Moreover, she is always calm, honest and super-nice!
