Green Card through i-601 waiver
Vi Nanthaveth is one of the best lawyers that I came across. My case was very difficult immigration case that involved in arrest and needed I-601 petition. She filed the petition and was approved within 3 months. I-601 Is the worst of all US immigration filings and if she can get an i-601 petition approved for a person that had domestic violence arrest, she can handle any immigration case without any doubt. She will work with you with very little information that you have. Also you can call her office and someone will be there to answer the call at any time. She is the best.

Adjustment of status "Green card"
I found myself in need of hiring an immigration lawyer to help assess my case. Good thing I found Vi, she is very professional and at the same time I got a personal service. She was calm, patient and extremely attentive and responsive all the time. My wife and I bombarded her with questions and she always remained professional and took great care to ensure that my queries were answered. Whether it was through a quick email or a phone call, Vi was always available and prompt whenever I needed her. She was there to answer all my legal questions, or just to assure me that things were in order. And the other thing that we really appreciated was her payment plan, specially in this economy that was definitely a big help. She took care of everything and made all the process fairly easy and painless, I got my documents in less time that I had expected, less than 4 months. I really recommend her as an Immigration attorney.

Of the highest caliber.
I was extremely impressed with Vi's representation of me. She kept me well-informed, was very organized with my case, and was a great listener. She is an excellent attorney.

Helpful, Professional, Trustworthy.
I am very happy with the service I received from Vi Nanthaveth's Law Firm. She helped my wife and I with an immigration case. She is very responsive, I never had to wait long to get any questions regarding our case answered, whether via email or phone. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I never really worried about our case because we knew it was in good hands. The preparation for our case was very professional and very complete. Anything that could come up that might delayed our case was already taken cared of in our file. I will definitely be recommending Vi's Law Firm to anyone that might have questions regarding immigration cases.

A real human being
Iam currently working on an immigration case, and contacting Vi Nanthaveth was a good move! Whether or not she can help you with your case, I can guarantee that she will give her maximum effort to try and help you. Unlike other lawayers I have talked to, she actually has a "soul". She is not cold hearted or robotic. I can tell that she not one of those types who are just "in it for the money". She kept me posted the whole time and really displayed a ginuine concern for me and my wife. If you want a caring "human" to try and help you, instead of a mechanical, power hungry, corporate "shark"....then you should pick Vi Nanthaveth. Even though I live in Nashville,Tn , she called and emailed me frequently to keep me updated. If anyone thinks this review is being "dramatized", then I encourage you to call me at 615-853-1917 or email me at [email protected], and I will give you a personally testimony. I wish Vi luck with her Law practice, and I hope everyone who is dealing with immigration will find happiness. I pray that someday, we will all realize that there is only one race under heaven. And that is the HUMAN race

Don't waste your time or money on her
This lady has no knowledge of the legal system. It took me almost two years gathering information she requested, spending money I didn't have on things such as office space, legalization of my company, hiring public accountants and other corporation lawyers only to finally be told that it would be impossible for me to obtain my E2 business visa. She informed me after two years of deliberations only FOUR working days before my I-94 permit expired. The whole time I felt poorly represented by a person with little to no experience of immigration law, but felt compelled to continue working with her due to the fact that she seemed to be my only option at the time. You can only imagine how hard it is to have to hire a lawyer simply to start a business in a new country. I wasted two years of my life and over $5,000 of my hard earned money on this matter. She felt so badly about handling my case so poorly that she refunded $2,000 of this money. However, this didn't even come close to covering all the expenses I incurred obtaining information that she requested. She always seemed to be distracted and confused by other cases, vacations and family emergencies. Furthermore, it was always very hard to reach her by phone. Think twice before hiring this person. And do not let her rates fool you, it will cost you more at the end.
