Great Lawyer.
We hired Emma Zhang to navigate the labyrinth of paperwork involved with my wife's immigration and permanent resident status. We could not be happier with what Emma did for us. She is professional, knowledgeable, responsive, as well as warm and caring. She took us to the finish line, and we are grateful.

Excellent Tough Immigration Lawyer!
We have received a NOID (Notice of Intent of Deny) letter from the USCIS for our green card case after our interview. They are basically saying we are fake while we know we are not! We reached out to Attorney Emma Zhang hoping she can gain us another opportunity to present our case. Emma worked wonders in a few days and directed us to collect so much evidence we never thought about collecting. She wrote a strong argument letter to the Immigration and sent tons of evidence. My wife got a direct approval and green card was sent out a week after! We can't thank Emma enough that she basically just turned a denial to an approval in one week!

A Wonderful Lawyer
I met a lady on a Tourist Visa vacationing USA 2016. We fell in love. We got married! Hired Emma July 2017 to file a Petition for an Adjustment of Status for wife to remain USA. Wife received a temporary Green Card October 2017. We had our Immigration interview December 19, 2018. Green Card approved! Emma was present at our interview. She was there for us from the beginning to the ending. Knowledgeable! Responsive! Smooth! Emma is the best!

I can't thank Emma more and I am so lucky to have her as my immigration lawyer! I was having a complicated I-751 removal case for my green card. Emma took great care of my case, directed me step by step, and prepared extensive supporting documents. I got my green card approved without an interview! I will definitely recommend Emma and her law firm to any friends who will need a good immigration attorney!

Regardless the complexity of your case or simple questions, Emma will definitely be able to help and guide you with your immigration concerns. Thanks again for your help!

Best lawyer I have dealt with
No words can describe how wonderful of an immigration lawyer attorney Zhang is! We used to use another immigration attorney and he got us in more immigration troubles than ever. I was referred to The Law Office of Zhang by my friend who also had Attorney Zhang as her immigration lawyer and she got her green card in no time. Bottom line, I got my green card approved in no time despite all the complications my previous immigration lawyer caused. Attorney Zhang coached me for the AOS interview and also accompanied me at the interview. I got the green card approval right then and there after the interview! Besides her immigration law practice, Attorney Emma Zhang is also a nice person to talk to. She is super smart, kind, and responsive. Her office staff is professional and friendly. I recommend Attorney Zhang to anyone who needs a really good immigration lawyer to get you the visa or green card, or to get you out of the troubles your previous immigration lawyer got you in...

Best you can find.
Attorney Emma Zhang is the best immigration lawyer hands down. I came to her for my E2 Visa application after it got denied once. During our first meeting, Emma quickly spotted the weaknesses in my E2 visa case and reasons for the previous denial. In the following weeks, she directed me how to strengthen the case, what documents to collect, and even how to improve my business plan. After the case was well prepared, she submitted my E2 visa change of status application with premium processing and got it approval in 1 day! Emma is a highly professional and efficient immigration attorney and an intelligent and pleasant person you’d want to be friends with. I will definitely hire her Law Office again when it is time to start my green card case.

Great Immigration Lawyer!!!!
Best immigration lawyer I have dealt with! Attorney Emma Zhang is our company immigration lawyer and she has got our H-1B petitions approved effortless, including mine. Last year without premium processing, her office submitted my H-1B petition in April and got it approved in May with no RFE! We have immediately moved on with her office to work on my PERM application and EB3 green card, which is another area Attorney Emma Zhang does her wonders. She is super efficient and responsive and her staff are super friendly and professional. I would recommend Attorney Emma Zhang to anyone who needs a good experienced immigration lawyer for your H-1B and PERM EB3 green card!

Best Immigration Lawyer in San Francisco!
I am a software developer working for a startup company. My company initially hired another immigration lawyer who almost messed up my PERM Application. I did a thorough research and hired The Law Office of Zhang to take my case over because Attorney Emma Zhang has in-depth knowledge and experience of employment immigration, specially for the IT industry. Attorney Zhang is the best immigration lawyer I have dealt with and she got good results in very short time. She got my PERM application and I-140 Green Card application approved in no time without any Audit or RFE. She also extended my H-1B visa in time before it got expired. She tracked all of my immigration status since the beginning and sent me reminders for actions several months before the deadline. All in all, my company and I are very satisfied with immigration lawyer Emma Zhang, and we will recommend her and her firm to any startup company for immigration matters!

Remarkable Job!
Attorney Zhang is the best immigration lawyer I have dealt with. I hired immigration attorney Emma Zhang to help with my EB2 immigrant visa process. Her initial immigration consultation was very informative and clear. She led the whole PERM process step by step and handled the advertisements for my employer. Attorney Zhang has in-depth knowledge of immigration law and she is a very experienced immigration lawyer. As a result, I got my PERM Labor Certificate approved with no audit and got my I-140 green card application approved within a week. I strongly recommend Attorney Zhang for anyone who is in need of a best immigration lawyer. P.S. Staff was very polite and helpful.

Best a fellow lawyer could find
Went through a number of immigration lawyers until I found Emma Zhang, who speaks excellent Mandarin as well as, of course, English. At the initial interview she already has a number of options spelled out for me in detail. Young, energetic, and very knowledgeable. But alas final review awaits the results.

Great Immigration Laywer
I was in a big mess regarding my work visa and had called several lawyers to ask for help but quickly got the feeling that I was not taken seriously or that they would not want to take on a problematic case. With Emma it was different. She took time to review my case in detail and helped me every step on the way to get a new visa and resolve my issues with USCIS. I especially appreciated that she replied to my many questions quickly and patiently and that her explanations were clear and to the point. The best lawyer I worked with so far! Thank You.
