    • I do not recommend Patricia Chew.
    • I hired Patricia more than 3 years ago.
    • Patricia handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    Patricia Chew handled my husband's immigration case. She said his case was no problem and she knew exactly what to do. We paid her and she filed the papers for him. 18 months later all the immigration applications she filed for him were denied. She said that immigration agents in Chicago (which is where we filed) just didn't know what they were doing and she said her attorney friend Donald Kempster in Chicago would take over our case. She sent my husbands file to Attorney Kempster. We met with Attorney Kempster and he said that he couldn't believe Chew had done this and that there was no other outcome other than my husband would be deported. Patricia Chew wouldn't accept my calls after that. My husband was picked up by agents a few months later and deported. I never got any money back from Patricia Chew. And guess what... now she's a JUDGE in El Paso TX.

    Excellent attorney. Very knowledgeable in the law and obtained my visa in a timely manner and within the projected timelines for immigration and the consulate.

    My case was an application for an H1B visa (temporary work and residence). In our first meeting, Ms. Chew seemed very self-confident and assured everything would be very easy and fast. She was paid for the whole process in advance. Seven months later I still did not have my visa. She did nothing about it for three months and when she finally did it, my application was full of mistakes. Because of those mistakes, I had to leave the country twice and I still can not work. Finally we changed to a new lawyer.
