  • Alma Leonie David

    Vicky Dobrin is a force to be reckoned with and one of the very top immigration attorneys in this area. I have witnessed her representing her clients before both the Immigration Court and before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and she has impressed me with her keen intelligence and legal acumen, and her fierce dedication to each case. Vicky has a reputation for being both compassionate and highly competent, and this reputation is well-deserved. I highly recommend her.

    I have had the pleasure knowing Vicky as a colleague for a number of years. She is a true professional in the field of immigration law and is very highly respected in Seattle's legal community. Vicky offers comprehensive knowledge and extensive experience in her practice and it is clear to me that her clients receive top-notch representation. Vicky is also a rich source of wisdom and insight to her colleagues and it is a comfort to know that she is around the corner whenever I am in need of some quick advice! I endorse her highly and without reservation.
