From the first meeting, Rosie was very understanding and sympathetic. She gave me the PROS and CONS for the actions we will be taking and let me know the BEST CASE and WORST CASE scenarios. At the interview, she was very helpful in keeping the immigration officer on track to the subject on hand. The ultimate result was that I was recommended for US citizenship and took my Oath in less than 30 days later. Thank you Rosie for all your help and support. You and your office are definitely highly recommended!

Rosy is AMAZING!! Not only is she an expert in her field, but she is highly responsive over email, and is a genuinely caring and compassionate human being. She was not merely my legal consultant, but my emotional support during unexpected twists and turns in my husband's immigration application. Largely thanks to Rosy, our story had a happy ending, with my husband finally being able to join me in the US with his Greencard. She's also an unusual lawyer in not being constantly focused on the financial bottom-line. For example, when she had to work overtime on our case due to an unexpected snag, she didn't charge me her full hourly rate because she said the snag wasn't either my or my husband's fault. I'm not sure how many other lawyers would have had that much honesty, integrity, and basic human kindness! Honestly, I can't praise her enough. Trust her - she will get the job done with proficiency and compassion!

I am so grateful that I have found Rosy to help with my immigration case. She is seriously a godsent. I have a relatively complicated case, and wanted to adjust status within the U.S based on marriage to a U.S. citizen. Other lawyers who I have consulted prior to finding Rosy either told me that it would be impossible, or that I would need to go back to my home country in order to adjust status and I could be there waiting for months while my job is on hold and at a risk that it won't get approved and I won't be able to come back into the States. I was pretty scared at the risk and dejected by a lack of a consistent response or no response from other lawyers, and then in comes Rosy. Rosy responds to her emails promptly, and she immediately put me at ease during our first consultation. She is very honest with the reality of the situation and after carefully reviewing my information, she reassures me that I can adjust status in the U.S, and many people adjust their status here without needing to go back to their home country.
Her price is reasonable and there are no hidden fees later. She is very clear with explaining the process, and she is patient and continues to answer follow-up questions throughout the process. She is able to see things clearly and keep the process simple and straightforward. She provides checklists and timeline of what to do, so I just followed her checklist to gather all necessary documents. She would review all the documents in person with me and my husband before she helps me process the application. Her office keeps track and notifies me of all the USCIS notifications, so I never miss a notice. We would also meet again prior to the interview. Throughout the process, Rosy is reassuring and knowledgeable. She was right there with me for the interview and was a calming force. I was anxious and a little skeptical at how smooth the process would go, especially after all the negativity from other lawyers before.
I highly recommend and trust in Rosy's guidance. I am so grateful I found her through the reviews here on Avvo, and now that my case is a success with obtaining work/travel authorization and a green card all within ~6 months, I want others to know about Rosy and how helpful she is. She is an excellent lawyer, so if in doubt, I suggest just sending her a email and inquiring about your case.

From my 1st interview to the denied letter, it took more than two years. I got stuck in my immigration process, the 1st lawyer (Jxxxx Bxxx) who is rated 10 massed up my case. I decided to look for other lawyer to help me to solve the denied letter. However, I visited 2 more top 10, they both scare me away.
I came to visit Rosy. I was little bit nervous and hopeless before I meet her because she is the 4th attorney I look for help. After an hour consultation, she explained to me with confidence and took my case.
She took my case as her own and help me well prepared. When she’s with me in the interview, she strongly convinces the officer. Rosy help me to get my status in only 3 months.
If you need a lawyer who can really help and fight for you. I strongly recommend her to you.

Rosy has been such a blessing to myself and my family. We were in a desperate situation and were fortunate enough to meet Rosy, just as we were running out of time and hope. We have a unique and complicated set of immigration cases, and prior to meeting Rosy, constantly felt confused, misinformed, anxious, worried, and impatient. Rosy mitigated those feelings by addressing all of our questions and concerns honestly and promptly, helping us to feel prepared, calm, and assured. What really blew us away was her compassion, understanding and genuine concern for my family. Needless to say, we hired Rosy to be our advocate and she's worked relentlessly to help my family gain citizenship.
Rosy is extremely knowledgeable and intelligent. This is reflected in her ability to think quickly off her feet and provide us with options when we felt like our backs were up against a wall. This whole process has not been easy, but Rosy has made it as seamless as possible for my family and we feel so grateful to have her by our side.

There are a lot of immigration lawyers out there. Some are good. Only a select few are great. Rosy is definitely one of those select few.
I have been trying to get a permanent residency for my wife. It was a battle for 14 years. We went through IJ, BIA, 9th Circuit, deportation proceeding. We have consulted different attorneys and hired some to represent us. At the end we lost all of it. We got ICE agents knocking on our door on three separate occasions. No fun.
Then we met Rosy. Right from the first meeting, we knew she's different. You can tell she does this out of her passion. After reviewing our case, she gave an honest opinion regarding our situation and provided some options. We were discouraged at first. However after we went home, we realized that she was giving a hard truth but truth nonetheless. She was more interested in helping us than whether or not we retain her.
Finally we decided to contact her again and have her represented us. She did a excellent job in updating us every step of the way. Answered every question and updating us when new immigration policy was enacted that will benefit us.
She was able to reopen our case, terminate the deportation proceeding. Two weeks ago my wife received her permanent residency.
You want a lawyer who will fight tooth and nail for you. Don't contact any other lawyer before you talked to her first.
Beware, she will be honest with you and might tell you things that you don't want to hear about your case. But know this, those are honest comments that came from 10+ years of experience. Wait a minute, isn't that what you hired a lawyer for? Not to get a sugarcoated comment just to get you sign a retainer.

Rosy gave us hope when we were at the end of our rope. We'd been screwed over by another immigration lawyer, who had failed to file paperwork on time, lied to us, and generally messed things up; I was out of status and we expected to get the removal notice in the mail at any moment.
After the other lawyer stopped returning our calls, we decided to find someone else. We found Rosy Cho. Her patience was boundless, her responses immediate.
Six months later, it's all sorted. I got my green card earlier this week.
I can't imagine we'd be in this situation now without her help.

I highly recommend Rosy to anyone needing immigration help. She has a great experience in immigration case.
I met Rosy six month ago, she is very knowledgeable and provided the best service on my immigration case. She always there when I have any question on my case. I got my permanent resident card shortly after Rosy submitted my application. It was great working with Rosy in the past few months. Her service charge is reasonable and she worth every dollar I paid for.
Thank you very much Rosy, you are the best !

When faced with complicated immigration issues that may or will likely take you to immigration court, we would recommend having Rosy H. Cho on YOUR side. Good immigration lawyers who can handle complicated cases are few and far between - even if you go for the most famous ones that have been quoted in national newspapers. Rosy is very low-profile in comparison to some immigration lawyers who have their own Youtube videos, multi-page websites, various mentions in newspapers. However, we believe that she is one of the best in San Francisco, and likely one of the best in Northern California.
We have been extremely impressed by her extensive knowledge of immigration law and history of the law, precedents, and by the breadth of her experience in dealing with diverse immigration issues. She also knows how to collaborate effectively with other members of your legal team, i.e. she is not a siloed immigration expert like so many others in her specialty who know precious little about any other areas of the law, or their repercussions.
We came across Rosy Cho's name entirely by chance, found one reference for her after countless Google searches for immigration lawyers, reading through various references in Avvo.com, and even trying to contact some of the most mentioned immigration lawyers in the newspapers. In spite of all these efforts, we could not find 'the one' who could help us through a very delicate and complicated immigration situation, nor a lawyer that we felt comfortable sharing our story with, regardless of how iron-clad attorney-client privilege supposedly is. When we finally came across her name, something clicked in our minds. Wanting to know more, we Googled her. We found very few references to her, but the references we did find were extremely compelling. Here was the lawyer who could fight for a case, and who had the legal experience and the extensive knowledge in the extremely convoluted and ever-changing landscape of immigration law.
Rosy Cho is a conscientious, knowledgeable, responsive, immigration lawyer, who garners clients' trust and will fight for them. She is realistic, and she won't sugarcoat outcomes, nor over-promise as many less ethical and less knowledgeable immigration attorneys will. However, underneath it all, you get the sense that she is sympathetic, and will do everything she can to give you the legal advice and insight that you need to navigate through your complicated immigration issues.
We would highly recommend Rosy Cho above many other widely-known or widely-advertised peers in San Francisco. We would also recommend going to SF area to find an immigration lawyer, and not rely on smaller-town peers. The smaller-town peers may not have the level of expertise or breadth of experience that you need to resolve your issues, though they may be more convenient for appointments. While our issues are still in process, with Rosy on our team we feel heartened about facing them.
