I cannot recommend Alison Yew’s talent and expertise highly enough. She is simply one of the very best lawyers you could ever be fortunate enough to have chosen, and you can wholeheartedly feel assured that once you have chosen Alison as your attorney, you will feel 100% confident that she will move heaven and earth to see your case through with no stone left unturned. Her diligence, perseverance, and detailed knowledge about my case was stellar and impressed me over and over, time and time again. I know of no other person I would have entrusted to have helped me through the extremely stressful and difficult time my legal case presented to me.
Although my situation was outside of her normal focus, which is immigration, and had to do with an unlawful rental situation I was involved with as a plaintiff, she heroically offered to take my case on a contingency basis, allowing me to pursue a legal course of remediation I otherwise would not have had the means to pursue. She came to me as the guardian angel she in fact IS, offering to help me, and she saw me through to the very end. I can never thank Alison enough.
Again, her knowledge and persistence, her invaluable assertiveness, timeliness, and commitment to my case were instrumental in achieving an optimal outcome. Her personal support throughout the ordeal was as equally appreciated. She is not only an expert litigator, she is also one of the very nicest and most compassionate people you could ever know, and her integrity and faithfulness to my cause were unceasing. She repeatedly gave me renewed hope whenever I started feeling frightened or defeated, and I not only felt that I had an exemplary lawyer supporting me, I also felt that I had a real and trusted friend who cared deeply and sincerely about my welfare. Someone like Alison, who can see us in our most vulnerable and fragile states and continue to provide encouragement all along the way, is alone worth her weight in gold. Legal issues are frequently not merely technical; they often carry some deep and painful corresponding emotions. Alison was the cure for both, a reliable and trusted captain steering us both capably through the dark and stormy legal waters.
I would recommend this woman to anyone and everyone. She is a shining star, and will most likely be your lucky star.

Alison accepted my citizenship case after I had submitted the form 400. My case was kind of tricky because I had 2 long stays out of the US, and I was pretty much worried that my case got rejected. Meeting with Alison was kind of relief for me.
She was by my side for all the journey I had with her great ideas. she helped me to put together some documentation and was present in my interview session.
I recommend Alison if you have an immigration case and need a good support!

Alison, thank you so much for being the angel I was looking for. In December 2014 I hired a different attorney and started the process of my citizenship. A few months after my interview I received a letter saying my citizenship was denied. The denial was because an error in one of the documents which the attorney didn’t catch. The attorney told me there was nothing left to be done and all I could do is renew my Green Card. The attorney even said I was never going to be able to be a citizen unless the laws would change.
I was devastated, I cried almost everyday, I couldn’t eat/ sleep. I had one month to figure things out because I was not going to sit down with my arms crossed even though the attorney said I had no chance. I contacted many lawyers/attorneys and to be honest none of them were able to give me a concrete answer. Luckily, I found Alison’s office information randomly searching online. She had great reviews, so I sent her an email. I met her two days after in person and she was indeed the angel I was looking for. She said I had good chances to appeal and become a US citizen if I was able to prove with the correct documents that it was an error.
I hired Alison right away and she started the process of my appeal. She was great at getting back to me via email and phone. She was even working on July 4th to make sure everything was submitted in time since I had little time before the denial decision was final.
I became US citizen a week ago and I couldn’t be happier and more thankful. Thank you very much, Alison. I highly recommend Alison as an attorney especially if you have troubles with your application.
