5 years E2 visa after 5 stars work from Bobby's team
I switched my case from another office to Bobby's right after speaking with him via remote consultation, at a cost that worthy every dollar. He is genuine, professional, articulate and thorough. He's got an experienced team as well, even his executive assistant Stephanie is more experienced than many lawyers with this regard. Bobby's service didn't end after the interview; he also reminded me lots of do and don'ts after visa issuance. Getting him as my attorney is one of the best decisions I've made so far.

E2 VISA
I am absolutely thrilled to have approval for a 4 year E2 Visa. This would not have been possible without the hard work and support from Bobby and his team.I was on the low end, (under $100,000) but Bobby worked very hard to help me submit a strong case for approval! Bobby and his team were always patient, professional and extremely supportive through the whole process from beginning to end. Thank you once again Bobby!

E2 VISA APPROVED WITH BOBBY
Working with Bobby was an excellent experience. He helped us with the entire process in the E2 Visa. From the first steps, while we were looking for a franchise to buy, until the interview at the consulate. Very professional, always calm, and available to talk about any questions. His team is incredible, too. Stephanie, the executive assistant, did a great job; she understands everything a lot, always assisting us via video or email. Lotte Aarsman, our case manager, researches and works hard down to the most minor details of all documents. Undoubtedly, we recommend Attorney Bobby, a great professional and person.

E-2 Visa
We are grateful for getting the opportunity to work with Attorney Bobby C. Chung and his team. The professionalism starts at the top and trickles down throughout his staff members. Stephanie Chiueh explained the overall process in great detail and answered all of our initial questions and concerns. Stephanie made us feel comfortable and confident which ultimately lead us to making our decision in hiring Attorney Chung. Lotte Aarsman, our case manager laid out a detailed plan and assisted us throughout the entire process. Lotte's dedication and guidance was instrumental in us being approved for our E-2 Visas. Alyona Kuznetsova always answered our questions and booked appointments for us over the phone in a timely manner. We appreciate Alyona's hard work, commitment and support throughout our journey. Thank you Attorney Chung, it was truly a pleasure working with you and your staff. We wish you all loads of happiness and success!

The Right Attorney & Team for E-2 Visa
• I strongly recommend Attorney Bobby C. Chung. Our family faced the most challenges in our business on October 16, 2021. The second-floor apartment above our restaurant had a fire incident and our restaurant was damaged by fire water and smoke. We need to find a new place to resume back to business as soon as possible. Attorney Chung had set up the teleconference 1 week after the incident to provide all necessary law, regulation, and requirement of new acquirement of the new places. We worked in 2 new places, but all these places did not work out. So, we returned to our original places. Finally, we spent almost 2 years to resume back business. This means we lose business for almost 2 years with no business income, which is high risk for E-2 visa renewal. Attorney Chung hinted major approach to show our faithfully resume back to our business after fire incident in 2021. Attorney Chung has turned all failure of acquisition of the new places to be sincerely effort to resume back to business as soon as possible. All necessary documentation has been reviewed and carefully presented to immigration officer including evident of acquisition, new investment & proof source of fund from Thailand, and all implementation of the original place. Surprisingly, after our family’s E-2 Visa Extension Application was submitted to USCIS for only 2 weeks, our application has been approval on September 29, 2023. This is good news for our family in 2 years. Attorney Chung confirmed that this is the fastest approval, in normal process, from his over 10 years’ experience in this field. May we take this opportunity to express our sincere thanks to Attorney Bobby C. Chung for his valuable advice, vigorous effort to arrange all important information, and strategically present our case to the immigration officer. This major contribution makes our family’s E-2 visa extension can be approved within 2 weeks. And we can pass the critical situation from fire incident and return to our normal life again. We would like to thank Attorney Chung’s team, Mr. Randi Wilf, Senior Paralegal, dedicated our case manager for the past 10 years, who review and provide commend of all document and evident. And we also would like to thank Ms Alyona Kuznetsova, Administrative Assistant, who followed up our renewal case 6 months in advance before visa expiration, arranged meeting, meticulous in packing, and finalizing our application. Finally, we do strongly recommend Law of Bobby C. Chung, Attorney Chung, and his team, to everyone who would like to successfully in E-2 Visa Application and would like to work with knowledgeable team of E-2 Visa that can provide solutions for their specific situation & circumstance.

E2 Visa Approval
Bobby and his team helped us get approved for an E2 Visa. His experience and expertise was apparent from our initial meeting.

Hire Bobby and you will never regret
No matter which country you are from, when you see this review you can stop your search and call Bobby's office now. I found Bobby from a franchise business broker who is also a very kind gentleman. After the first call with Bobby I decided to hire him as my lawyer due to the complexity of my case and since then I never regretted. Professional, kind, patient, thoughtful and reasonable cost. The communication was always effective between me ant their office. Not only Bobby himself but also the entire team is very professional. It was because of their hard work that made my interview so easy as all information had been provided and the visa officer didn't even have more than two questions to ask. I believe not many people's cases are more complicated than mine and I got my visa approved so yours as well.

Great Experience
My husband and I talked to 8 “attorneys”, before meeting Bobby. Some of them sounded like pushy sales rep. Other were not even attorneys. We noticed that some lawyers offered so many different visas types, that they didn’t have all the details about the E-2 process. Bobby was referred by friends who also had their E-2 approved. My husband and I just knew he would be the right choice, we were finally confident to start our change of status. Since the beginning we received very detailed instructions. His team was very professional, and responsive. Our Journey will continue, since we must leave the country to apply for a consular E-2.

Sucess in obtaining E2 Visa
I contacted attorney Bobby in March 2022 to request assistance for obtaining E2 visa. My husband and I had a zoom meeting with Bobby shortly after. He is very professional and knowledgeable in his field. We fell the trust and confident right away and made our decision that we are going to choose him. Bobby and his team were so helpful through the processing period. We couldn't ask for better team. They answered all our questions timely and professionally. He held our hands through the whole process and gave us confident. We successfully obtained our E2 visa with NO problem or complication. I highly recommend Bobby and so grateful to meet and working with him and his team. I have a special thank to Stephanie and Randi
