    • I recommend J Fong.
    • I hired J Fong 1-3 years ago.
    • J Fong handled my Immigration matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    J Craig Fong is a very professional, thorough, strait forward but very likeable immigration attorney and was very helpful in filing our "I485, APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS". Quite frankly I don't know how we would have gotten through it without his and his husband/partner Andrew's help. When we hit a snag due to documentation issues he knew just what to do to keep the process moving along and made us feel much better about it all. He has over 30 years of experience with the immigration system and it shows! He's also just a really nice person as well!

    We could not be more pleased with how J and Andrew helped us through the process or the end result that now my husband has permanent resident status!

    We would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone who needs a top notch immigration attorney who also happens to be a heck of a nice guy to boot!

    • I recommend J Fong.

    When I was looking to hire an immigration attorney, I did some research before deciding on J Craig Fong. At first, I found an affinity to J because, like me, he is also gay and Asian. But a quick search showed that J has an impressive background in immigration law, over 30 years in fact. He's also a community advocate as well. Deciding to hire J was not a difficult choice. At the time, I was an undocumented immigrant with a complicated immigration story. J helped me sort out the immigration mess and took extra care into exploring creative legal solutions to fix my immigration problems. Then as luck would have it, the U.S. Supreme Court’s unprecedented DOMA decision in 2013 paved the way for my now-husband and me to legally get married, thus making it possible for J to successfully file for my adjustment of status petition with my husband. Throughout the process, I found J to be professional, down to earth, funny, comforting and very easy to work with. I always found J to be in my corner, looking out for my best interest and he made me feel at ease while being taken care of under his capable hands. I can vouch that he is extremely knowledgeable in the area of immigration law. And I would highly recommend J to anyone in need of an immigration attorney.

    Someone once told me that as far as immigration is concerned, a good lawyer is like a big stick. You need one just in case things go really really bad. J has been much more than that, he was an excellent lawyer through my incredibly complicated case, helping me not only navigate through the oftentimes bizarre and confusing USCIS forms but also occasionally telling me that I shouldn't freak out so much over the process. A key feature of being his client is his availability throughout the process to clarify doubts and next steps. He helped me successfully get my green card. I wouldn't hesitate to hire him again incase I needed further work in the immigration front.

    After meeting with several different immigration lawyers I recently had an initial consultation with Mr Fong and was relieved to have finally found someone who is a true professional in every sense of the word and who I feel I can work with in the future on my immigration status and the issues I will face. His knowledge empowered me and made me feel that he had a firm grasp on the complexities of immigration. Mr Fong was clear and concise in explaining my choices relating to my immigration status. I look forward to working with Mr Fong in the future and I would unreservedly recommend Mr Fong to anyone seeking immigration advice and representation.

    • I recommend J Fong.
    • I hired J Fong more than 3 years ago.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I had some legal questions about the situation with my partner, and I was referred to Mr. Fong by a friend. I called his office, and to my surprise, he took my call, and proceeded to give me insightful, pertinent, and helpful information over the phone. I've dealt with lawyers before, and they usually seem hesitant to talk for too long before they want to start billing, but Mr. Fong was willing to talk with me and answer all of my questions to help me understand my options -- and he doesn't even know me. He was incredibly friendly and generous, which I still can't believe. Anyone dealing with immigration legal issues should definitely give him a call.

    Craig was awesome. I come from Indonesia and immigration is very difficult with many uncertainties. We are extremely happy with the results we received from him and his office.

    • I recommend J Fong.

    I am an immigrant from India. My daughter recently sponsored me and my wife for a Green Card.

    Before filing for the Green Card, we debated whether to file the application ourselves or utilise the services of a professional. Some friends recommended the law office of Fong & Chun, LLP for this job. Finally we decided to use the legal and professional services of Mr. J. Fong because we wanted the job done right the first time around and in a timely manner.

    Mr. Fong is extremely proficient in his field and after disussing the issues with us he immediately gave us all the necessary information and documentation required for the application, giving us much confidence that the job would be done right.

    After filing our application, he informed us of the process giving us the time frame involved; like Receipt of Application, issue of Work-Permit, Travel Papers for travel outside the US, Medical Examination, Interview. etc., and finally the Green Card. The process would take about seven months.

    With Mr. Fong's counsel and to our surprise, we received our Green Card in three and a half months! We were thrilled and relieved!

    My wife and I are extremely happy and would not hesitate to recommend Mr. Fong's services to anyone who wants to feel at ease with their Immigration process.

    Thank you Mr. Fong.
