About Richard

Learn Richard’s areas of practice.

Richard knows firsthand the stress, anxiety, and uncertainty that comes when dealing with the immigration process. As an immigrant himself, he has gone through the legal process and has experienced the same feelings of not knowing what the future holds until immigration reaches a decision. Richard decided to help fellow immigrants through the complex immigration process and enjoys helping spouses, parents, children, siblings, businesses, and refugees secure their visas, permanent residency, and citizenship. Being bilingual has made it easier to communicate with individuals directly without the need for translators.

Great lawyer
I hired Mr. Sin 3 times, one for a speeding ticket, one for an immigration matter and another for a civil matter. I was extremely happy with the way he handled all my cases from the beginning to the end. I have also consulted him on various cases including bankruptcy, estate planning and other legal matters. He is always willing and ready to listen and to help as needed. I am very happy doing business with him and would happily recommend him to anyone. Mr Sin is a great and honest attorney.

Great experience
Richard Sin is an excellent lawyer. He is very knowledgable about immigration matters. He guided me through overwhelming load of paper work and he helped me with the process of getting my green card and my citizenship.

Trusted and Experienced Counsel
Richard has been advising my entertainment/production company for years. From the start he helped me set up the LLC and drafted the Operating Agreement. After restructuring a few years later, he again directed me in the legal process and guided me through rewriting the Operating Agreement. Richard's expertise knows no bounds and he has reviewed numerous MSAs and contracts for me including complicated licensing documents. He's always been a trusted resource and alerts me to any red-lines I should consider more closely. I still regard Richard as an important confidant for my business to this day to advise me on all my legal issues.

Simply the best!
Mr. Sin is fantastic!! He is very kind and really takes the time to understand one's issues & needs. He is extremely knowledgable and he knows, and has worked with, a lot of good folks. Whatever your legal matter, he has probably done something similar and can help. He is also refreshingly honest and will tell you if there is someone more specialized or, even better, not overcharge you if there is an easy way for you to handle it yourself.

Professional, Prompt, Knowledgable
We consulted Mr. Sin on immigration maters and on documentation procedures. He responded promptly, gave us an understandable explanation of the legal processes we faced, and made sure we knew he was accessible should we need further counsel. I can highly recommend Richard Sin for his professionalism and expertise in law, as well as his since of service. We will continue to consult Mr. Sin on all matters of immigration and estate planning and consider him an ace for those families who have multiple citizenships such as we. I give the highest marks to Richard Sin without hesitation.

In the summer of 2012 I sought Richard's help and legal advice for a change of status from an F1 visa to a legal permanent resident of the United States. He was very thorough , professional and empathic with my case and my application was approved on the very same day. I will not hesitate to recommend Mr Richard Sin to anyone with immigration issues!
