My Experience with my Immigration Case
My name is Ms. Consolata and Mrs. Takemori has represented me since 2010 when my mother petitioned for me. My case was a complicated one and an erroneous decision was made at the US Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya. My Attorney Gina Michele Takemori was able to defend my case with LegalNet at the Department of State and to have the Embassy reverse their decision. It was only in September 2021 that I was given my immigrant visa and allowed to return to the United States of America. During the whole process from the time my case was filed and during the time I was abroad, my Attorney never abandoned me. She checked on me, updated me regularly, encouraged me, checked with the Department of State and the Embassy whenever necessary. Attorney Takemori and her team are seasoned Lawyers and Paralegals who have the knowledge, experience in immigration law and work diligently with care and empathy and can be trusted. For these reasons I would highly recommend them to anybody, especially to people who have complicated cases.

Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, Value
OMG, I don't know where to start from, simply there are no words to describe how grateful I am to have found Ms. Gina Takemori. She is very knowledgeable, thorough, a great communicator, and truly represents the best interest of her clients. if Gina takes your case, you can be confident she will do everything and win it. Besides being an outstanding professional she also has a very nice personality and treats her clients as family members. My journey to becoming a permanent resident, and eventually a USA citizen was very stressful and complicated, all my hopes were lost but she restored the confidence in me, not just once but many many times. She laid everything out for me clearly and helped me with every step of the way. We started from nothing and Gina and her fantastic team Maria, and others worked very hard with me, she was available any time I needed her, and always made sure I was on top of what we needed to do. If you are looking for a great immigration lawyer, Please, look no further! She is truly amazing and I highly recommend her law firm.

Best Immigration lawyer
Ms. Gina was outstanding working with me on my immigration case. Didn't care about money. All she said was help me help you and your family, when things go well, you will pay me. I was working in the warehouse and couldn't afford to pay a lawyer. She asked me to pay what ever i could every month. After my case was granted, she assisted me to file for my family at no extra cost. Ms Gina put people and her experience to serve, no comes later. Go Ms. Gina!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello, My Name is Yuri and I am from Honduras. I always wanted to be a nurse and a USA citizen. I thought that those things would never happen to me, but in 2012 I became a nurse and in 2015 I got a green card. I though getting a green card was more than impossible, but for Gina, there is nothing impossible. She and her assistances were very attentive, always answering my questions, encouraging when I had doubts and best of all, they give me the feeling that they had my back and they would do absolutely everything on their power to help me. She also helped my mother, my mother's green card is on its way, after other lawyers told her that she could not get one. I am very grateful for you Gina. I am going to Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador in a few days, while packing I think of you and I smile, I would not be packing for this amazing trip if it was it for you. Thank you very much, my the world pays you back for all the goodness you do. Your friend for life, Yuri

In one sentence, Gina is amazing.
Here's my story. I'm a Spaniard and live in New York City with my boyfriend. I work as a professional for the same firm for 8 years. My H1B Visa was to expire this year, but I very much wanted to stay, to work, to live, and to be with those I've who had become part of my life. And so did the company I work for, so they sponsored me for a green card. Earlier last year (2014), I retained counsel from another lawyer who had originally started my employer’s GC application. They shuffled their feet for months. The last straw was when they told me that they had priority clients (i.e., not me) to attend to. It was looking impossible for my firm to get the green card done with them and my visa was about to expire. The situation was extremely stressful. At this time, through a referral, I found Gina and I asked her if she could help us. She jumped into high gear immediately, seeing the urgency of the situation. From the moment Gina entered my life, the situation make a positive turn and I felt I was finally in good hands. For around a 2 week period, we exchanged (no exaggeration) at least 20 emails a day. She was on the case, and had thought of every contingency and within these two weeks my employer and I got all the applications done!!! She even got my H1B Visa extended as to minimize any possible issue. I can say with certainty that without Gina's professionalism, expert and fast work, I would not have had my green card application and my visa extension submitted on time. If you're looking for an immigration lawyer, I can recommend, without any reservation, Gina. Thank you for reading.

All my best, Gina xxx

Great immigration experience
Attorney Takemori provided me with clear and thoughtful assistance for both my immigration and business law needs. I met with Takemori during my immigration to the USA from the UK and after I transitioned to the U.S. again for help with moving my business here. In both of these efforts she consistently provided me with high quality legal support and assistance. She has sat down with me to work through my specific situation and discuss potential solutions, conducting research and because of her strong experience in both immigration and business law, I was able to trust her advice. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for attention to detail and quality legal support.

She will make your dream comes true!
I would like to thank Attorney GinaTakemori for the excellent legal service that she provided. I hired Attorney Gina Takemori to help me and my husband acquire permanent residency in the United States. Ms. Takemori is extremely knowledgeable and she was always ready to answer any question I had during the process; especially the most complex ones related to re-entry in the U.S when applying for a change of status with a H1B visa and, the ones related to the content of the letters of recommendation for an EB1 green card application. She carefully took the time to review all the letters of recommendations and gave us very good advice to help us improve our application to have a better chance of success. Thanks to Attorney Takemori and her team, my husband and I are now able to settle more permanently in the Unites States as new lawful permanent residents. I recommend Ms.Takemori services to everyone who is currently applying for a green card. She will make your dream comes true!

I was fortunate to be referred to Ms Takemori by a coworker. I can happily say that today I'm officially a US Citizen. My situation was unique due to an unfortunate 2nd degree assault charge from over 10 years ago. My green card had also been expired for roughly the same amount of time. My family and I had much concern with proceeding with Naturalization in fear of being deported. Gina and her very knowledgable team walked me through the process keeping me informed throughout. I honestly feel if I had done this on my own it wouldn't have went through. I'm forever grateful to Gina and her staff for making this possible. I would highly recommend hiring Takemori Law to assist with the endless paperwork and headaches. Thanks so much for everything! SS

Great Lawyer for Immigration cases
My parents and I had the privilege to meet Mrs. Takemori even before coming to this country, 2005. Since then, she has handled with great success all of our cases. My family and I would recommend Mrs. Takemori and her team without hesitation due to her reliability, knowledge and great service. Throughout the years, she's always shown genuine care for us and I am sure she does that with all her clients. Thank you for all that you have done and still do for our family.

Best Immigration Lawyer in the area
Gina Takemori has handled all of my family's immigration cases since we got to the country in 2006. throughout the whole process she has been nothing but kind, helpful and very competent. She will make sure you get in all of the evidence requested, walk you through the process and explain anything that you need. More importantly though, she really cares about her clients, I don't just feel like a number but I really feel that she cares about me and wants to help me stay in the country and in this process that is the most important thing. I trust her 100%, definitely recommend her.

Best Immigration attorney
It was such an honor to have found such an amazing, caring, knowledgeable, trustworthiness and hard working attorney. I came to Mrs. Takemori for immigration purposes. My husband is Military and he got orders to Japan, I needed my green card to travel with him. The moment I explained my situation to her she immediately provided me and my husband the right information. Every question I had or concern I easily made a phone call or email, with in minutes I got answers! Thank you to attorney Takemori I got my green card with in 4 months! It's been a year since and I always go back when ever I need something! She's always there, it was my first attorney I ever hire. I highly recommend Mrs. Takemori, best Imigration attorney.

LGBT (Same-Sex Couple) Green Card Approval
My partner and I were honored to have found such a great, hard-working, knowledgeable attorney to defend our same-sex green card application. My family has used Attorney Takemori for several years to handle our immigration cases. She has always succeeded in obtaining us the best outcome possible. I believe her best trait as a lawyer is that she is always available to answer my questions and concerns. She takes pride of her work, and she strives to keep the best interest of her clients at the top of her priorities. My partner and I reside in Texas; however, we never doubted to hire her even if she was many miles away from us, due to the fact that I know she will keep up with her work at all times. It is known that USCIS has very recently just approved for LGBT couples to obtain permanent residency through marriage. Mrs. Takemori excelled in all areas of the application process as evidenced that our meeting with the Immigration Officer lasted less than 20 minutes! The interview went well, and smooth. We believe that if Ms. Takemori had not prepared all of the evidenced correctly and sent it prior to the meeting, we would have not received the same results. I highly encourage the LGBT community to contact Mrs. Takemori to handle their Immigration cases. Her trustworthiness and caring spirit are invaluable. She has been a blessing in our lives, and we will always feel secured knowing that Mrs. Takemori will always be there to help in times of need.
