Counselor Chodorow and his team provided support far beyond our expectations resulting in a K-1 visa for my Chinese fiancé. He is experienced not only with the issues faced by international couples, he and his team have also worked successfully with LGBT couples like us. He is exceptionally fluent in Mandarin and his staff are effective in working across language and cultural boundaries. I recommend him highly for any issues related to immigration and China.

Gary Chodorow was the attorney for my J-1 waiver, H-1B, outstanding professor green card, and naturalization. Recently, he helped apply for certificates of citizenship (Form N-600K) for my children living in Paris. We couldn't have achieved this without his expertise and guidance. We're deeply grateful for the wonderful job he did. We made a photo of the kids' citizenship ceremony into a poster hanging in our living room.

Attorney Gary Chodorow represented me in applying for a visa at the U.S. Consulate in Shenyang. When the Consulate returned to me by mail my passport, it was accompanied by a note from the consular officer thanking Gary for his "thorough and well-prepared" visa application. I've never heard of a consular officer sending out a thank-you note!
Since that time, I've hired Gary for several more immigration law personal and corporate matters, and each time I've been pleased with to see my applications approved.

I have known Gary for many years. He has an in-depth understanding of the US Consulates in China, especially the one in Beijing. Every time I have difficult issues with any U.S. Consulate in China, Gary is the first person that I go to for assistance, and he has been extremely helpful. I highly recommend Gary to anyone who would like to negotiate the US visa process at the U.S. Consulate in Beijing.

Gary is one of the most thorough, patient and analytical attorneys I've met. He was a joy to collaborate with on an article we co-wrote on marriage based immigration. I would highly recommend Gary for EB-5 investor visa work as well, and other complex immigration cases.
