He Cares About His Clients
Mr. Yekrangi is a very professional immigration attorney in Irvine. He cares about his clients and follows through until the very end. Without getting into details, he handled my immigration questions successfully and his fees are extremely reasonable compared to other lawyers I spoke with. Although he is a young lawyer, he puts in the time to get you a positive result. I would definitely recommend that anyone in need of immigration help should speak with Mr. Yekrangi before speaking with anyone else.

You helped my Family
Mr. Yekrangi is very professional and takes a personal approach to all his cases. I have dealt with attorneys in the past and most of the time I was dealing with secretaries. Mr. Yekrangi, however, is always accessible and returns calls promptly. He cares about your case on a very personal level. I was very happy that Mr. Yekrangi handled my case and we have a very positive result. I will definitely recommend him to friends and family. I also enjoy his sense of humor and I can tell he is a "go getter". Thank you Mr. Yekrangi for your hard work, you really helped my family.

Trust him and let him get the job done smoothly!
Ashkan is the best immigration lawyer I have ever had. He knows his job very well. I had a complicated case and we were not optimistic about the outcome. But, he managed it professionally, and we finally won the case with much ease to our surprise. I definitely recommend him and his hardworking team. Not only he offers a great service, but also his fees are reasonable. You can trust him and let him get the job done smoothly.

Honest Lawyer
Though, l only had a consultation over the phone, l could sense the compassion and respect he had over my case. I was in my lowest point at the time, and l know he didn’t try to take advantage of the situation. Now, l know that he really try to help me, even though, l told him that l only needed a consultation because l already had a lawyer.

Best immigration lawyer
Sent to a few consultations and I was so impressed with Mr. Yekrangi's knowledge of immigration law and the solutions he recommended. I felt at ease working with him and his team and my wife got her green card sooner than expected.

Absolutely exceptional lawyer!
I cannot thank Ashkan and his team enough for what they did for me, you cannot find a lawyer like him!! I would not have got my green card this quickly without his help, it is clear that he is in this to help people and this is more than just a job to him. To provide context, my green card was declined due to not showing up for the interview - I actually never received the letter and this was lost in the mail. Ashkan responded to me straight away, after work hours when I was extremely stressed. He answered all my questions and saw me and my husband immediately. He reopened my case in a month, without having to go through with the I-290B that can take up to a year. I got my green card interview shortly after and now I have my permanent residence!! I could not have found a more empathetic, ethical and dedicated lawyer!! I would 100% recommend him to anyone, he is the best there is.

Exceptional Customer Service and integrity!
I went to Ashkan with some questions related to Re-entry permit. I scheduled the initial consultation for approx. $100 (if I remember) and we started from there. I sent out some background to him before the call and as the call was approaching his assistant reached out to me to say that due to calls that Ashkan had scheduled, he needs some more time to read and prep for consult and asked me if we can move it half hour later to give him time to get prepared and understand my questions. I thought this was very professional and showed he cares and he wanted to prep himself so I would get the best use of my time. I really appreciated that. Consultation was great. I get all my questions answered. He said just to follow up with any questions in our previous email chain I sent the background in. Every follow up question I had in span of 4 months was answered! Within 24 hours turnaround. I was not asked for any additional charges and I never felt unwelcomed. Sometimes I read other lawyers responses to questions on this website which can translate into "please call my office, schedule $150 consultation and then we can talk" vs welcoming service of Ashkan. THIS IS EXCEPTIONAL and I would recommend to anyone!

Amazing lawyer and team!
Before I met Ashkan, I had consulted with a couple of other lawyers regarding my I-751 (removal of conditions for green card). Most were cagey with their replies even when I paid for the initial consult. The first meeting with Ashkan left me with no doubt that I needed to hire him. He and his team were absolutely brilliant throughout the process. He not only gave me excellent legal advice, but during times of great distress also acted on a personal level and helped steady my nerves. He and his team were extremely patient with me and answered all my dumb questions. My petition got approved in less than half the average time it usually takes for these things. All the diligent effort and meticulous care Ashkan and his team put into it surely helped. I'm happy I trusted my instincts and decided to go with him, and I'll be back in his office when it's time to take the next step.

If you looking for responsibility and knowledge, call ASHKAN immediately
You can’t find a lawyer who is as responsible as Ashkan!!! You can’t find a lawyer who works on your emergency cases till 3:00am to prepare your documents, Except Ashkan!!!!!!! When I called him about my parent’s emergency case, and I consult with him I’ve never thought that I will get the documents at 3:00am (just 6 hours after our conversation) He exactly knows the meaning of Empathy, humanity and responsibility. Above all, he is very knowledgeable. Thank you Mr. Ashkan.

Emigration from the UK to USA
My experience of working with this law firm has been second to none. They are professional, thorough and communicate well with you. The main man here is Ashkan Yekrangi. He is not just a great immigration specialist but also one of the nicest people you'll meet. He takes time to understand every individual situation and knows how to overcome every hurdle that you may encounter during your immigration process. I worked with him and his team for over a year. They made the process so smooth and stress free. I highly recommend this law firm to anyone who needs advice and support to emigrate to the USA. They will help you every step of the way and will always deliver a positive result. Take my word. I know. Thank you guys. I wouldn't be in the USA if it wasn't for you and your amazing service.

Won my case
I hired Mr. Yekrangi for a detained immigration case, as I was in deportation proceedings. I was in a very bad situation, but Mr. Yekrangi would assure me that he would do everything he possibly could to help me be out of ICE custody soon. He was patient, kind, and understanding. He spent a lot of time on my case and fought for me in court to get me out of ICE custody. He truly cared about me and my case, unlike any lawyer has. After he was able to get me out of custody, he was able to win my case by getting asylum, so that I could get my green card back! My case was very tricky and had difficult circumstances, but even with all of that Mr. Yekrangi was still able to get me asylum. His hard work and dedication changed my life for the better and gave me a chance to live in the United States. I am forever thankful for his hard work on my case. He gave me my hope back. He is a lawyer who really wants the best for his clients and cares for them. He was always there to answer any questions that I had for him. Thank you Mr. Yekrangi!
