I had a consultation with Ms. Chan on my change of visa status issue. My case is a bit complicated and Ms. Chan explained it in every specific detail and answered all my questions in professional way. She understood my concerns and offered really helpful advice. I felt like I was treated like a friend. Plus, she also got a prompt reply to my follow-up questions afterwards. Really appreciate that!
Ms. Chan is a quite organized, professional lawyer with dedication into details. Will recommend!!

Evangeline gave me the best consultation I could hope for. I am on an expiring OPT with a few options and she explained what each trajectory would look like for me. Prior to consulting with her, I had already spoken to three other lawyers who each gave me their own professional advice. None of them really took the time to ask me about my situation and were willing to listen to the complexity of my case. Evangeline put in a lot of time to research all the possible options for me and also illustrated what each process would look like. She was patient and generous with her time to explain and answer the many questions that I had which made me feel like she really wanted to help. By the end of the consultation I left with a plan that I was happy with and all of my questions answered.
Evangeline also answered follow up questions after the consultation very promptly, clearly and thoroughly. She was very professional, intelligent and thorough the entire time. She's just been an amazing help and have continuously given me the best advice.

My husband and I felt so overwhelmed when we decided to move to the United States from Switzerland and, in doing so, seek a Green Card for him. Even though we had been married for more than 30 years, the process seemed impossibly difficult. Then a friend recommended that we seek help from her lawyer, Evangeline Chan. From the moment we met her, we felt relieved and knew that she would assist us until the end. She is very professional, highly informed and follows you from the beginning to the end. My husband was approved last Friday and we are so excited. We could have never done this without our excellent attorney, Evangeline Chan! Thank you again for making the impossible possible Evangeline!

I wholeheartedly endorse Ms. Chan. She is extremely conscientious, knows the ins and outs of immigration law, and works diligently to obtain the best results for her clients. In the case we worked on together, her strategic planning resulted in our client's expeditious release from custody.

Evangeline M. Chan was recently a guest on my weekly radio show, "Law You Should Know" to discuss the many types of non-immigrant visas. In interviewing her for the show I found her not only extremely knowledgeable but able to communicate complex information in a manner her clients can understand. I know from interviewing hundreds of lawyers that few attorneys are able to do this.
