    Immigration Law

    33 years

I'm the Managing Attorney of the Immigration Law Office of Los Angeles. I have been practicing immigration law for the past 20 years. I focus on business immigration by representing employers and employees with their visa needs (H-1B, O, L-1,TN, E-1 E-2, E-3). I assist my clients with their legal permanent resident applications (PERM/labor certifications, EB-1, EB-2, National Interest Waivers, EB-1 Multinational Executive petitions, and EB-1 individuals with extraordinary ability).

I have advised executives at multi-national corporations with full-service immigration advice and petitions and assisted start-ups to grow and expand rapidly – one of which went IPO. I have 20 years as a strategist for corporations assisting them in implementing solutions for hiring high-tech workers (including assisting with intra-company transfers and EB-1 multi-national executive permanent residency petitions). As part of my service, I coordinate with executives, technical departments, and HR to advise and deliver solutions for multiple corporations.

I have assisted hospitals, nurses, and physicians with their permanent residency and work immigration matters, assisted athletes, business people, scientists, and artists, and assisted students with F-1 visas. I have extensive experience working with HR at small and medium-sized companies with their immigration needs and also provided training and immigration seminars to HR staff.

I also have two decades worth of experience representing high-net-worth individuals/investors with legal permanent residence petitions (EB-5 and I-829 petitions)

In addition, I have represented individuals in hundreds of marriage cases, fiancé visas, K visas, and naturalizations.

I have successfully represented and received approvals on more than 4,000 immigration cases. I received a degree in A. B. in Political Science from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan in December of 1986; graduated with a J. D. from the University of Detroit School of Law in Detroit, Michigan in May of 1990 and I received a degree in L. L. M. in International Business Law from the University of London, England in October of 1991. I am a frequent writer and speaker on immigration law in publications and on radio programs. I have held numerous positions with various local chapters of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

Highly recommended!!!
Excellent service. They have helped me from the very beginning all the way until I took my oath. I highly recommend this lawyer. Crystal Chang is amazing, any questions I had she was very quick to respond. They always kept me up to date with any new information. If you want a hardworking, knowledgeable team these are the people to go with.

Excellent Immigration Attorney!!
If you want a trustworthy lawyer and a smooth immigration/green card application process, then there is no other attorney in the Greater Seattle area to turn to other than Linda. Linda and her team were very helpful and always accessible. Her paralegal, Crystal, is second to none - the fastest responses (even weekends). If your case is slightly complicated as ours was, If you're concerned about any minute aspect of your immigration application process, then there is no other lawyer in the Seattle area but Linda who I would trust to handle my immigration needs.

Greencard in less than 2 years!
It seems unbelievable, but it is true. When Linda accepted my case, she told me, that she is very selective in accepting cases. I followed her instructions, and with a real ease at first I got a working permit. Now, with my wife we have the greencard - in 22months after I started working in the US! It talks for itself. Excellent, very reliable, serious, precise teamwork with the guidance of Linda. Our full respect to the legal assistant, Crystal and Linda’s husband, Winston too! We were always well informed, and received fast and satisfactory answers on all of our questions. We feel that through the high level service, they provided we really got our money’s worth. Highly recommended!! Thank you again!:)

Finally an immigration lawyer you can trust
I've had a very complicated immigration process. I dealt with 2 other immigration attorneys in the past however they totally wasted my time and money. I hired Linda from Florida but unfortunately I never had a chance to meet her face to face. It did feel like all my immigration issues were dealt from her office in Bellevue, WA. Linda worked on my H1B, labor certification, I-140 & I-485. All applications were submitted on time and her work was extremely clean. I finally received my greencard in October 2011. Please consider Linda as your immigration attorney. She saved me a lot time and money. Thank you Linda & Winston!!!!

Acquisition of E-2 Visa
When I hired Linda for my case of E2 Visa, I already knew she is the best lawyer in the industry by listening her reputations. While I was provided her professional service, I recognized why she receives all of those good reputations. My case was taken about 2 month, and she provided me all the documatation of visa application and advice of business transaction. Everyting was completed on time, and her advice on each issues were very helpfull . What I really like about her service was a rigorous and preecise work. I strongly recommend Linda for the case.

Excellent Attorney in Immigration Area
I was pleasantly surprised that my case was approved so quickly. Initially I had started my case with another firm, but whenever I called for a question I did not receive a call back. In the middle of my case I switched to Linda Yoo's office and they answered all my questions and helped through the process so that my case was approved without any problems. I recommend Linda Yoo's office to anyone needing immigration work

Finally got our Greencard!
Our entire greencard application was a very long and stressful process. Dragging on for almost 3yrs, Linda and her team were efficient, professional, informative and most of all sympathetic . We are pleased with her services and the prices are reasonable. We have already referred an few colleagues and will keep referring her services. Thank you Linda and everyone at the office.

Green Card Application
Before Linda and company accepted my case, my green card application is just like a living hell. No regular updates from the attorney and the process was exceptionally laborious. Linda and company made it easy, pain-free and prompt submission of all paperworks. I received regular updates regarding my application and the progress of my application. In a nutshell, I am very pleased with the service rendered to me and I do not hesitate to recommend her proffesional services to all my friends. Thank you for the exceptional and proffesional service.

Professionalism at its best
I am a medical doctor from Australia. In 2007, I made the decision the immigrate to the USA through the EB-5 visa program. I hired Linda as my attorney to handle my immigration issues. I obtained my green card in January 2008. I barely had to lift a finger because Linda guided me well through the arduous and complicated processing of the visa. She prepared all the paperwork and I only did the bare minimum, eg sign here, sign there. When I had questions, she would answer promptly. She even checks her e-mail on Saturdays - how is that for dedication! The other thing worth a mention is her team of paralegals. They work like a well-oiled machine. Fast response to my questions, all the paperwork neatly organized. They go out of their way to make it easy for me. They are not a big law firm, so you do feel that your case is not just another number to them. I recommend Linda highly.

Best Lawyer in Seattle Area
I've recently done business with Linda Yoo. I was impressed by her fast, competent, attentive detail to the business. Her fair prices are a bonus, but more than that is that she does NOT charge more than she should! I recently needed her to do more work on my case. Not only did she finish quickly & keep me informed every step, but she did not charge any extra fees for her time even though it was up & beyond what I hired her for. Outstanding! I can not give her 6 stars but if I could, I would do so. A lawyer you can trust? Absolutely!

No worries & no extra charges lawyer! A+++
Linda Woo is everything you want in an attorney for LIFE. She is competent, trustworthy, prompt, courteous & hard working. I highly recommend her as someone you do business without worrying about greedy lawyers. I had unforeseen problems which meant more work for her but she fixed them and she didn't charge me extra! Wow, I didn't expect that! If you want a lawyer that knows what they are doing, does it well, does it quickly & doesn't gouge, you want Linda. I can't recommend her enough.

exceptional
I move to Seattle in 2005 from Ireland. Linda Yoo was recommended by Virginia Mason Medical Centre as the immigration lawyer to use. She was outstanding and my husband and I had green cards within 6 months of applying. Her knowledge professionalism and efficiency never wavered she really sets a high standard in her field. Her ancillary staff are also exceptional and efficient. Finally I really recommend her as an immigration attorney, in my many encounters with her she was always a pleasure to be with, as clients we never felt rushed or that any question was too small. We have our green cards thanks to Linda.

Best Immigration Attorney in Eastside
We have used Linda Yoo’s office for immigrations needs for our office and also IP service agreements. Very knowledgeable, and thorough. The reason why, I rate them high was they are lightning fast in responsiveness without compromising our cases. We were kept in the loop continuously through out our cases. Every communications was concise, and to the point. And like all good attorneys, they gave us sound advice, looking out for our well being. No doubt about their ability as an attorney!

Client
She is just lier. She doesn't know how to work but she keep ask money. If you complain about something, she will be mad because she think she is good. If she did wrong way and bring worst results, she will say I don't agree but it happened. Do best bye !

"I endorse this lawyer. Linda is an extraordinarily conscientious and hardworking attorney. I particularly admire the fact that she is quite selective in the cases she will accept, but that once she has accepted it she makes it her life mission to get it approved and neither offers nor accepts excuses. The legal profession would be held in much higher regard if more attorneys were like Linda."
