Immigration Attorney at San Jose, CA
also known as Yew Immigration Law Group a P.C., Law Office of Alison Yew
Licensed for 28 years
I am a California State Bar Board Certified Legal Specialist in Immigration and Nationality Law. I have 25 years of legal experience. I founded this 100% immigration law practice in San Jose in 2013. Because of our laser focus in this ever-changing legal field, we are deeply experienced and have a diversed immigration law practice, including employment immigration, family immigration, and citizenship through naturalization. Some of our cases include representing US-based companies hire highly skilled foreign workers through employment immigration and permanent work visas, including PERM processing, I-140 petitions under EB-1, EB-2, I-129 petitions for H-1B and L-1 visas, and other treaty visas such as TN visas. I've counseled many foreign investors on how to obtain a green card through the EB-5 investor visa program.
The most fulfilling achievement is being able to unite families through family immigration visas or green cards.
I bring a personal understanding of the immigration experience to my work. I was born in Hong Kong, and my family and I came to the U.S. when I was a child. My husband is a naturalized US citizen who came from Egypt.
