Attorney Chung provided sound, timely, and realistic advice from our initial consultation to the successful granting of our E2 Visa, which we were granted for 5 years! Attorney Chung provided us the guidance necessary to select a qualifying investment, which is the first and most important step, and then ensured that our Application completely satisfied E2 requirements. The process of applying for an E2 Visa is complex. There are no tricks or shortcuts. I highly recommend consulting with Attorney Chung if you are serious about an E2 Visa.

I am a very analytical person and have 20 years of international corporate business experience. I interviewed 4 immigration lawyers before hiring Bobby. What I like about Bobby and his business model is:
- He is willing to invest time and share his knowledge during the selection process. You can recognize that he is very confident in what he knows as he does not hold anything back.
- His website might not have all the bells and whistles but provided by far more detailed information that other website for my specific type of visa.
- He spells out EXACTLY what is his value proposition and what you will get from him if you hire him. No one else that I interviewed did that.
- He is very responsive, via phone or email he will get back to you within the same day or max 24 hrs.
- He is willing to consider different venues to accommodate to your needs.
- He and his team will do anything within their possibilities to work with your requirements. I had some time pressure and he and his team worked with me to finish within my time requirements;
- He was very transparent and I like his integrity. He will tell you without hesitation if he believes something is not going to work or is outside of the legal system.
- He provides you with any templates that might be needed for your business documentation.
- He gives you a written contract and there are NO hidden fees. All is included, phone and email consultations, document preparation, until your case is presented and finished.
My case was not common as it was an E-2 where I would start with only 1 employee, no inventory and very little equipment. It is proper to this type of business but Immigration officers are used to grant investor visas for larger investment where many employees and large investment is made to cover inventory and machinery. Bobby gave me confidence and help me build the business and business case to present with confidence to the Immigration officer. E-2 Visa was granted after 15 min of questions, all of which Bobby had prepared me for. I highly recommend Bobby to anyone looking for an immigration lawyer.

We enjoyed our interaction with Mr. Chung. He is well versed in the requirements for the submission of a successful E-2 visa application. From our initial meeting with him, he guided us very competently through the process. His instructions were always very thorough, helpful and unambiguous. He was responsive and made himself available to answer any questions we had during the process. We were well prepared for the submission of our application and our interview with the U.S. Consulate. The E-2 application package that Mr. Chung prepared, with our input, was very professional and met all of the E-2 criteria. We would highly recommend Mr. Chung for anyone seeking to apply for an E-2 investor visa.

I was referred by my friend who hired Bobby for her E-2 Visa. She interviewed more than 20 lawyers (yes, that's true) before she hired Bobby. She recommended him to me and I was very impressed through the first phone call with him. Yes, she was right - this was proved by all the work he has done for my case.!
I hired him a couple of months later for my E-2 Visa and he did an excellent job. He was very nice, thoughtful, detailed and also like to give recommendations for the best choices. I got my E-2 visa approved without any problem at all. He is also good for EB-5 Visas since my another friend got her EB-5 visa from an almost dead case processed by a different lawyer.
His team is great too. The paralegal and secretary are all very friendly and helpful.
I highly recommend Bobby if you need to apply E-2 or EB-5 visa. He is so knowledgeable and sharp. Also, you'd better start the process with him at the very beginning which will make things easier.

Thanks Bobby, preparing for my E2 visa was really a smooth process. I decided to contact him after consulting several other Immigration Lawyers. None of them seemed to know so precisely every E2 visa steps. He told me how things would work from the very beginning. He gave me confidence as he explained clearly and firmly each one of the E2 visa requirements. When I had the interview at the Embassy, the consular officer did not ask me anything regarding the paperwork. Bobby checked very carefully all the material I sent him, gave me good advice and very clear directions regarding the way I should present the information. He only filed my case when he was sure nothing was missing. For all the above, I highly recommend Bobby C. Chung. I’ll definitely work with him in the future again!

After consulting with 3 immigration attorneys, we chose Bobby. His knowledge and experience specifically with E2 Visas was far superior and he left us feeling confident in his ability to guide us thru the complexities of immigration. Throughout the process, Bobby gave detailed step by step instruction. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls and never failed to provide direct responses to our countless questions. Prior to interviewing at the US Embassy in Copenhagen, Bobby thoroughly prepared me on the type of questions to expect. I am confident that I would not have had this same experience with the other attorneys which we had initially consulted. Bobby is extremely knowledgable in immigration law and I highly recommend him. I look forward to working with him when it is time to renew my visa!

I hired Bobby Chung twice once in 2009 to get my original E-2 visa, and then again in 2012 to renew my E-2 visa. He did an outstanding job on both occasions, and I recommend him very highly. My background is as a CPA and ex Goldman Sachs director.
I came across Bobby because I researched quite a few lawyers who I thought might be able to help me get a visa to run my business in the US. I contacted four, but Bobby’s web site appeared to be the most informative. I cannot remember who the other three were, but all four replied, and it became obvious quite quickly that Bobby had the actual experience rather than just theoretical knowledge.
I hired Bobby to advise me on maximizing the probability of getting an E-2 business visa. However, before I hired him, we had an extensive discussion about which visa was best for me.
At the start I was quite fee conscious, but after asking around, realised that he was in line with others – not the cheapest and not the most expensive. A few months later I started to become a lot less fee conscious because I realised that certain advice could make all the difference between getting and not getting my visa, and I had a lot more at stake than simply saving a few hundred dollars on lawyer fees.
My experience of working with Bobby was a very good one. We did most things by email but a couple of times I needed urgent advice and he was available by phone. I would say that we developed a good professional relationship, although not so much a personal one. I am also in the business of dispensing expert advice to clients, and I found that he exceeded my expectations in the way that he dealt with me. Most of all, he knew what he was talking about and that is really why I would recommend him highly.
He was always prompt with his responses, although on two occasions (out of perhaps 30 or 40?) he did not acknowledge receipt of my emails and I asked if he would always do this in future. He was fine about it and it improved my faith in him.
As for the things I liked about his service, first and by far the most important was his expertise. He has been and done E-2 business visas with many other clients, and it shows. He thinks of things that you will never think of, and that is where his value is. You can see that he is applying his experience and lessons for your benefit. I thought he was a nice guy and I always enjoyed speaking to him. He was a good listener. He responded quickly. I guess that is about it.
Not really sure if I have other comments. I think I have said everything in the email above. If you are a guy to whom getting the visa is not that big a deal, then you might want to go with someone cheap. No big deal if you do not get it. I had to get my visa and therefore I wanted someone who really knew what they were doing. I found his fees very fair, and view the money I spent as a fantastic investment. Even though I came across him by searching the internet, I am really glad that I did. If you want to know more, just email me back or call me on 775 230 4266. All the best of luck getting your visa!

Bobby has been of immense help to me with my E2 visa. I have used his services 3 times for obtaining and renewing my E2 and have had my visa approved without any problems.
He is professional, courteous and very thorough. In my opinion Bobby gave very generously of his time and was quick with his responses to my questions.
I feel that he prepared me well for my visa interview and always explained things to me in a way that I could understand.
I am extremely satisfied with the whole visa process under Bobby's guidance and feel that he offers the true spirit of service to the customer.
I have no hesitation in recommending Bobby as a lawyer as well as as an upright, trustworthy person.

Bobby was recommend to me by a very good friend , My dream for a long time was to work and live in the US. Bobby helped me 4 months ago with my E2 visa application. With his assistance more than half the battle was won. The documents were so well prepared by Bobby even the Embassy said the same thing and I'm sure they see a lot of applications. I always received a prompt reply from Bobby he was there for me the whole way. I can't thank him enough for helping me make my dream come true. You are in very good hands with Bobby ,I have recommend Bobby to my friends.
Thanks again Bobby.

He made the process easy and simple, and I felt very comfortable during the whole process. Through the years I recommended Bobby to my friends, and they have all been very satisfied. He made my American Dream come true!
