EB2- NIW Approved
I worked with Paul on my EB2-NIW petition which was submitted in October 2023. I got an RFE, and Paul really worked with me through the nitty gritty of how to structure the petition to address the various prongs and explained specific examples that I had to show and what type of material i should provide as evidence. He conducted in-depth research into my field of work, and helped draft my recommendation letters. Ultimately, we got an approval in a matter of days after submitted my RFE- i couldn't be more grateful to Paul for his dedication and counsel to my case.

EB1A Approved - Thank You Mr. Paul H Lee
Mr. Paul Lee is a very professional and knowledgeable immigration attorney. I worked with him on my EB1A application and am incredibly pleased with his efforts and sincerity. He possesses immense wisdom on immigration laws and pays attention to every word of your application. My friend introduced Mr. Paul to me. During my first consultation, his explanations about the whole process were perspicuous. He listened to me very patiently and noted every aspect of my profile. He guided me in narrating the professional summary to meet the USCIS requirements criteria for approval. I am astonished by his ability and willingness to learn every client’s industry and the latest trends. His reviews were detailed, and I was impressed with his research on my industry. He will put his commendable efforts to extract the best out of your professional knowledge and experience. He is a sincere, dedicated, and hard-working professional who spends considerable time doing exhaustive research and meticulous reviews of your application. His feedbacks were precise and elaborate. Please read every word of his feedback to help you enunciate a consummate professional summary. He cares for his clients a lot, and he even worked during Christmas Holidays. He is easily approachable and responsive in both email and phone. He won’t give up until the case is strong. A “Thank You” word is insufficient for his exemplary work. He is well aware of what he is doing, so please follow his advice and suggestions for a fruitful result. I highly recommend Mr. Paul Lee to anyone seeking an immigration attorney who possesses exceptional expertise and goes above and beyond to achieve positive outcomes for their clients.

EB1A Approval
Paul was diligent, patient and very knowledgeable throughout the process. He understands the requirements of the visa category extremely well and is able to help create a narrative that highlights the strengths/merits of your background and skillset. His research into my field of expertise blew my mind; he was able to pinpoint usable data and literature more efficiently than I ever could. Someone else had recommended Paul to me for my EB1a petition and I will surely recommend him to others. Prospective clients can be confident that Paul will be able to help you create the best version of your petition.

Strong recommend for EB1 application
I worked with Paul on my EB1 application. Paul is very well-versed with the process, was very generous with his time and feedback on my application, and acted as a true partner in the process, offering me valuable inputs on communicating my story and putting together a really strong package. He invested significant time and effort to research articles and publications to explain and strengthen the impact of the work that I had delivered in my professional capacity. My EB1 application was approved in the first attempt! I would strongly recommend him.

Simply stated, Paul Lee is an excellent immigration attorney. I have known him for several years and he has helped me with matters other than immigration. He helped resolved a rather complicated immigration case for my family. I cannot see enough excellent things about his professional behaviour and his attention to details as an amazing immigration attorney.

eb1
Mr. Lee was my attorney during my EB1 application process. Because my profile is unique, a Master's level research scientist not having a PhD, Mr. Lee took it upon himself to fully understand my particular area of expertise and industry affiliation so as to come up with a strategy to create a very compelling EB1 petition on my behalf. He showcased my research publications and activities, framing my work experience in my field of endeavor so as to create a very persuasive application supported by evidentiary material of my work. I came to view Mr. Lee as the go-to attorney and he has helped my sibling and individuals in my industry network with their petitions. He was very thorough and did not leave any stone unturned, thereby ensuring successful outcomes even though each of us had divergent profiles.

Highly recommend Paul!
I worked with Paul on my EB1A application, achieving a successful outcome. I was recommended to Paul by a colleague. Paul and I worked together on developing a strong narrative for my application. Paul diligently reviewed and provided his expert opinion on how best to communicate my work and its impact, guiding me through the process of building a compelling case, supporting the requirements for an EB1A application. Paul’s very knowledgeable in various industries and has the ability to understand a wide array of technologies, their application and impact. Paul was always available for me via email or phone, and patiently talked me through the process, answering questions, providing feedback. Paul is dedicated, hard-working, resourceful and works with high integrity. I highly recommend Paul for Eb1A applications!

Best for EB1A (extraordinary ability)
I worked with Paul for my (successful) EB1A immigration application, and couldn't have found a better lawyer for this. EB1A application is a very time consuming process, which requires a ton of research and writing specific to the industry. Paul works closely with the applicants, understanding their industry and work profile and customizes the application appropriately to address each EB1A requirement precisely and simply, so that someone with no knowledge of the field can understand it. This is not possible for any lawyer, since there are 100s of different job profiles in each industry, and being able to understand it in depth and building an EB1A application around it is no easy task. It requires an extraordinary level of intelligence and effort, both of which Paul exhibited during my time working with him. Highly recommended!

EB1A approved - Thanks Paul for making this real
Paul's advise and guidance at every step of EB1A process -initial consultation, multiple reviews/comments/feedback on my application content, ideas on evidences were of great help in ensuring a successful outcome. He came recommended to me by my friends who have had great experience with his services. Paul's work ethics are awesome and I really got to see the best of him personally and professionally while working with him on my RFE response. He encouraged and supported me throughout the process - first with preparing a detailed strategy for responding to the RFE and then with countless hours on phone and prompt respond to emails, comment on additional content, evidences, presentation. As they say, the true character of a person is seen in time of crisis..I found Paul to be extremely supportive during the crucial period of responding to RFE. I owe the successful outcome of my petition to his support and advise.

Knowledgeable, accessible and diligent
Paul is very experienced in the EB1 process. Throughout the 8-9 month process, he was accessible and took the time to review highly detailed drafts, recommending changes using relatable examples along the way. His support with the reference letters is unparalleled. Results matter the most and I'm happy that the guidance and efforts resulted in my I-140 approval.

Great attorney for EB1
I hired Paul for my EB1 application after a recommendation from a friend. EB1 is not an easy process - it took me more than a year and lots of iterations to get to the final application. Paul is very detail oriented and demanding - it can be frustrating at times but if you want a personal approach Paul is the guy. There are other firms who do this as well but a couple of things stand out: 1) you write the narrative but he writes the reference letters himself 2) he always recommends premium processing so we can know the result quickly. Thanks to Paul my I140 got approved within 10 days. Strongly recommend but be prepared for a long journey :)

Great attorney for EB1 visa with personal approach
I have been greatly impressed with Paul's professionalism, swift responses and great attention to detail. He helped me get approval for I-140 petition in Extraordinary ability. He was patient, heard my case well and prepared an excellent petition which could highlight my case well for USCIS.

EB1
Writing an EB1 application is a time consuming assignment, and unlike other lawyers who may take a cookie-cutter approach, Paul helps you build your individual case. I hired Paul after being disappointed with one of the other well known immigration lawyers. The application needed lots of iterations and I found Paul to be very patient, imaginative and direct. He also goes out of his way to help you where we can (he fixed an I-94 issue for me.. drove to the USCIS office for me, which was not part of the contract!). I believe he is one of the few lawyers who truly understands the role of financial industry and its applicability to immigration issues. I strongly recommend Paul for his premium immigration legal services. You won’t regret - but be prepared to work as hard as him! I had a successful I-140 application outcome within 10 days of submission. Thank you, Paul. Now on to the next step!

EB1-A (Alien Extraordinary Ability)
I hired Paul to be my attorney for my Eb1A application. I had a great experience working with him. Right from the first consultation Paul provided detailed explanation of the individual steps of the application process. I had consulted with other attorneys before but Paul's diligence and level of experience in working with standard and non-standard cases was evident in our initial conversation which is why I continued our engagement. The reading material that he sent over to help evaluate and collect evidence for my case was very thorough and very well organized. His approach of really highlighting my strengths encouraged me immensely. Although, he did not have specific experience in my field of 'Structural Biology and Biophysics' he went the extra mile to provide detailed templates for recommendation letters to be submitted with my application that were tailored to my field and my field of expertise. As a bench scientist, my ability to showcase the true value of my work to a non-scientific audience was definitely lacking. Paul's ability to bridge this gap I think was crucial in helping the examiner appreciate that the work that I do is important for the US economy and that I am at the top of my field. Paul is also very personable and he was always available for consultation when I had questions or concerns. I am very glad that he took the time out to call me to personally to congratulate me when my case was approved. I have already recommended Paul and his firm to others in my network and will not hesitate to do so in the future. I am very satisfied with Paul's services as my attorney for my EB1a application and thank him for making this journey to obtain Permanent Residence in the United States as smooth as possible for me and my family.

EB1 application
I worked with Paul on my EB1 I-140 application. He is brilliant at his job and has a wealth of knowledge in this area. He guided me through the process with a lot of patience and ingenuity. I felt that Paul was as passionate about my application and interests as I was myself. He was ready to take calls at odd hours and responded to each and every area of concern through the process. I wholeheartedly recommend Paul to anyone looking for similar services, you will be pleased you made the decision to work with him.

Great experience!
Paul helped me throughout my application. He was always available to answer my questions and clarify my doubts about the process. I still remember the crunch time when both Paul and I were working long hours and weekends to complete the remaining parts of my application; Paul cut short his vacation and worked in a hotel lobby to cross-check my write up so we can complete the application in the stipulated time frame. I enjoyed working with Paul and would strongly recommend him to my friends and others seeking counsel. THANK YOU, PAUL!

He is deep in his understanding of Immigration law and his excellent clear and logical thinking helped present my case in the strongest way possible. Timeliness and Accessibility: Paul gave specific timelines for filings and follow-ups and never missed any of them. His response time was way better than any law firm I have worked within the past 12 years and delivered a truly exceptional customer service experience. Result Focus: Paul steered me to focus only on things which will make my case stronger. He gave timely and valuable feedback that helped me strengthen my case and supporting documents. He wants to get the best possible outcome for his clients in the most efficient way. Working with Paul has been an awesome experience. I Highly recommend Paul for any immigration related matters.

Outstanding sevice
The EB1 process is not easy and there is a lot of work required by the applicant and attorney. Paul worked hard alongside me, always accessible even when he was traveling. He came up with a lot of good research, looking up SEC filings and Congressional hearings that would strengthen my case. I couldn't have done that on my own. Also, Paul is very easy to talk to. He is a good listener and his advice was spot on. I am happy to recommend Paul's services and wish him the very best in his endeavors.

EB1-A Case
I hired Paul Lee to consult me on the EB1A green card processing. Paul was very kind to explain me in detail the merits of EB1A application, process, and timelines and he very patiently answered all my queries. Paul advised and guided me in developing a very comprehensive I 140 application and throughout the journey he gave me very constructive and insightful feedback. I submitted the I 140 application on 1/16 under PP and got the approval on 1/26. I cannot thank him enough for being a smart, nice, humble, honest and effective attorney.
