I remembered when I first called Young a year ago, I was nervous as to how to go about filing of our complicated case. I met her personally 6 months after the first phone call with my then girlfriend to discuss our case. She took a personal and heartfelt interest in our case and one can feel that she prided herself on being an advocate for the clients she represents. She made immigration law, filing for the papers and what not so simple and direct to the point. She clearly explained to us during that first meeting what our options were and what her best recommendation was. She is never a person who will insist or pressure you to decide right then and there. We got married in August and Attorney Young filed for my wife's adjustment of status in September. The entire duration, she coached us on what we needed to do, what pertinent papers to prepare, kept us updated on the progress. I mean she was just so organized! She was so reassuring as well and you can feel a personal touch she gives to your case. She answers emails within the day, which is admirable for someone as busy as her. Even on weekends, she works her butt off for her clients and tries to work around your schedule. We've been to several lawyers before we met Attorney Young, nobody gave us that feeling that our case is something important and we are not just "clients." Yes, she gave us options before we decided to retain her service and believe me, we heard all those options before from other lawyers but nobody made us feel so welcome. Yes, immigration law is complicated and sensitive especially for the LGBT community but Young Ah Ri will set all those worries aside and give you her 200% to win your case. You'll face the immigration officer with confidence and peace of mind that you've come equipped, ready for the battle. My wife got her greencard even before this year ends, (in less than 4 months!) We are truly blessed to have Young as our lawyer. We will definitely employ her service again. There are a lot of immigration law experts out there, but are you willing to take the risk for mediocre ones who will not deliver, or will just take advantage of you?

I filed my husband's immigration (change of status from F1 to PR) thru Young Ri and she was a delight to work with - professional, efficient and the most pleasant person you will ever meet! The process which is usually daunting and long winded if done on your own was so simple due to Young Ri's expertise and care. From the initial consultation, we knew we had made the correct choice - Young Ri made us feel at home and in knowledgable hands. It has been less than 4 months and today we received notice that my husband's green card is in the mail and should arrive any day.

When my husband and I went for his interview at USCIS in October, the interviewer mentioned that she loved getting files from Young Ah Ri because Young is so organized and thorough. We certainly agree. She is so efficient that my husband had his green card within 6 months. In addition, Young is very pleasant and caring, explaining everything clearly and with no condescension. Although she must have many clients, she always makes you feel important. We highly recommend her.
