Resident immigration process
My husband and I are VERY please with Susan Han and her staff. They started out the process with a consultation and based on their experience they gave info on what to expect and and the steps that it will take. They submitted our paper work to immigration in Oct 2015 and we just got approve for my husbands resident in Jan 2016 and believe my husbands case was very difficult since he had about 18 police charges filed under his name. Everyone in our family would say he would never had a chance to become a resident but thanks to the services of Susan and her staff he got approve without hesitation! In the interview Susan was with us and made sure we were taken care by her services without any extra fees to pay. Couldn't have gone to a better place than with Susan n her staff! My money was well invested and we are grateful for her service!! We will continue to go to her office for the next few steps so my husband can become a U.S. Citizenship!! By the way Susan n her staff rock and relate to u on a personal level :) u guys R the BEST!!!!

Above and beyond. Miracle worker
Before coming to Susan my situation was bleak. My company had attempted a L1 petition without seeking counsel and needless to say it came back as rejected. I insisted we use a lawyer and that's when I came across Susan. Right from the first meeting she showed an incredible amount of knowledge in the field of immigration and laid out exactly what the next steps had to be. She always kept me apprised of updates and anything else she thought would help my cause. The petition she sent to the immigration service was outstanding. My case was not only reopened (against all odds!) but granted, without any need for further evidence. Remarkable work. Would highly recommend.

Fast and reliable expert help with my immigration case
Susan took my case to help me with permanent residdency/adjustment of status. She did an excellent job being timely and quick to respond around my busy work schedule with a mixture of in person meetings, phone calls, and emails. My case was resolved very quickly (although every case is different) but I believe her expertise and long time in the business definitely helped. She also helped me in prior cases in processing my DACA renewal forms. If you have METLAW she also works at a discounted rate which is how I initially found her services.

Super smooth immigration process
My husband and I hired Susan for assistance in my application to register as a permanent resident. Before we sent in the application, Susan walked us through all the important steps and details. We immediately trusted Susan's prowess. The time between us submitting the application to me receiving my green card was only 4 months! This was incredibly fast and we are very grateful for Susan's help in our successful application.

Citizenship Process
My wife and I hired Susan Han in an effort to gain citizenship in a difficult situation with respect to mistaken identity. I had been unable to get approved for citizenship on my own over a mistake in my criminal background which Susan was able to help direct me with. I was extremely nervous and it felt impossible but with her guidance we were able to resolve the issue the first time around and I am now a citizen and have been reunited with my sister that I had not seen in 25 years due to this immigration issue. I'm forever thankful for her expertise and her genuine relatable person. I would highly recommend her.

Professionalism and attention to details
I had the pleasure of working with Susan as my immigration attorney, and I can confidently say that she was outstanding in every way. My case was pretty complicated but from the moment I contacted her, she was well-organized, professional, and always easy to reach out to. She answered all my questions promptly and thoroughly, and always kept me up-to-date with the progress of my case. She was always on point with my case, and I felt reassured knowing that she had everything under control. Overall, I would highly recommend Susan to anyone who needs an immigration attorney. She is knowledgeable, trustworthy, and genuinely cares about her clients. Thank you, Susan, for your excellent work!

My Experience with Susan Han
Hello-I am wanting to share my experience with Susan and her team as i had a very sensitive case that labored for 9 years and was a very successful outcome as all odds were against me. Her level of expertise, relationships with high level judges and DHS, is by far so crucial for a positive outcome! Not only was she my attorney, but i truly call her my friend as we established such a bond during the duration of my matter. I strongly urge anyone that needs such representation to seek no further!! The absolute best of the best! THANK YOU Susan!

Keen, thorough and efficient,
I contacted Han when I was in the middle of a difficult situation. I hired her and she made the process incredibly easy, and efficient. The two issues regarding my green card were solved, and she was also successful in attaining the approval of my naturalization. She completely changed my situation, with her competency and hard work.

Very satisfied with this lawyer
After our negative experience with our previous lawyer who basically underserved us we were lucky enough to hire Ms. Han who was able to help use her extensive experience and know how of immigration law to help my wife get her green card and social security card in a short matter of time. She did an excellent job

Invaluable help!
We worked with Susan on a marriage-based adjustment of status case. She was always on top of things, very knowledgeable and prompt in getting back to all our questions. Very pleasant to work with, too. We would strongly recommend working with Susan!

Susan is the best immigration attorney you can find in town!
I first met Susan in 2017 for a general consulting session. Unlike other immigration attorneys who urge me to sign up for something, Susan provided me with very realistic advice after thoroughly analyzing my situation. Her professionalism is why I decided to go back to her and start the journey when I was ready. Fast forward 2.5 years. I made the right decision. Susan was there for every step that I needed to know, and she's always available when I have questions or concerns. Being in this country for more than a decade in a deep struggle with my legal status, I thought I knew enough to get all these done myself, but I was wrong. Working with a true professional like Susan, you won’t get lost in the maze of this broken immigration system, and peace of mind is always guaranteed. Thank you, Susan, for pulling me out of the 17 years of darkness and putting me under the sun again.

Can't recommend highly enough!
Working with Susan these past few years has been nothing but excellent. My case was initially for an adjustment of status for an LGBTQ+ marriage that turned into a VAWA case as it progressed. Through the ups and downs of my case and the pandemic, Susan remained vigilant in keeping my best interest in mind at all times. I never had to reach out to her for help because before I would need to, she would've already reached out to me to guide me and make sure I was on top of preparing any documents I may need. She made me feel that she personally cared for the outcome of my case and wanted me to succeed. She prepped me on every possible situation that could arise and always covered all her bases, showing me that she's incredibly experienced and making me feel much less anxious as a result. Today I received the news that my case was approved and I got my green card! I can't recommend Susan enough. Thank you!

LGBTQI+ Marriage - Adjust of Status to Permanent Resident - Wonderful Experience
My husband and I contacted Susan Han for a consultation about my process of adjustment of status. Susan was very diligent and polite when describing the entire process, she proved to be a very knowledgeable and an ethical individual, so we decided to hire her services. The whole process from gathering all the information, filling out the proper documentation, get us prepared for the interview and attending to the day of our interview with USCIS was very smooth. Susan was always very proactive and responsive, she is very communicative and has a solid knowledge of immigrations law. We felt very safe and satisfied with the way she addressed our case. Susan is a great attorney and you should hire her services to represent you in all USCIS endeavors, highly recommended.
