Excellent results, in a record time
I had a great experience with Peter Kyung. He helped me with my application for an EB-1A, and the results were exceptional. We had our first meeting in late January, and I decided to hire him in late February. By July my case was already approved (via premium processing) and by October I had my green card. He was always available to go through all the different details, and he did a great job learning the intricate details of my research in order to write a compelling case. I completely recommend him!

Response from Peter Kyung November 17, 2015
Thank you very much for the kind words. I'm glad that I was able to help you obtain your Extraordinary Ability green card. You were very helpful throughout the process and it couldn't have been done without you. Your exceptional ability of course set the groundwork for the benefit you received, but your continued assistance and patience with the process was what carried it through. Though it was time consuming and challenging in obtaining everything, everything went as planned so I'm thankful to have had the experience of representing someone in your field. Take care and continue to do the great things you do!

Best Immigration Attorney
I Will Say If You Want The Best, Peter is No.1 Immigration Attorney. He is good at what he does, and take my word he won’t let you down. Peter helped me file for my marriage base GC petition, Travel authorization and work authorization in pandemic time. He helped me file my petition fast, kept me up to date, checked on me and my wife time to time and got me my GC without any problem.

A must hire if you want a successful case + peace of mind.
Going through the US immigration process felt daunting at the beginning. Then we met Peter. Peter made my wife and I feel protected, informed and progress driven. We got our desired result and best part, the experience along the way gained us a friend in Peter. Highly recommend.

Peter is the best lawyer ever. Peter treated me like family and genuinely cared about the success of my case. He was meticulous and covered every facet of my case. I truly appreciate his work. Peter joined my case midway and turned it around, got us a successful approval.

Excellent!!
Peter Kyung @KILO Immigration I want to start of by saying this has been one of the best experiences I have encountered. We are extremely THANKFUL for all the help that was provided throughout my citizenship journey. Peter is the best lawyer I’ve ever worked with. Peter is not just your regular attorney, he always goes above and beyond, he makes sure you understand every aspect of the process and leaves no answered questions or doubts. Works extremely hard on all his cases to provide detailed legal advices and ensures the success in your case. Peter always made me feel how important my case was to him and his team. Peter is very knowledgeable of the US immigration law and fast to respond with legal advices to all of my questions. Now that I am a proud American Citizen I can honestly say, I wouldn’t have done it without his support and advices. If you need legal help, simply call Peter you won’t regret your decision. Again, Thank you for making this journey a great one!

Phenomenal Immigration Attorney
I recently got my green card approved with Peter’s help. An immigration case can be very intimidating to do by oneself and putting your case in someone else’s hands can also be nerve-racking; Peter knows this and makes you feel cared for from the get-go. He was very attentive and reassured our concerns with his tremendous knowledge from the first meeting. I don’t think we could have chosen a better attorney than Peter. Peter is very professional, compassionate, and thoughtful. He responds promptly to every question or concern and always informs you of any updates about your case. I had some complications with my travel authorization due to a border officer’s mistake but Peter helped us the minute he knew about this and had a solution for us within days. After many months of support and hard work, Peter made it possible to get my green card approved. If you choose to have Peter represent you be assured you will be in awesome hands.

After those roller coaster moment and overcome together , I felt she is the right person who want to spent rest of my life. When my wife and I got Married, we needed a lawyer to go through many steps of immigration process. these steps of immigration need many patience and understanding of circumstance. especially when it wAs a period of covid incident that hit us hard. it was hard to stay away from my beloved wife. Peter was the person who guide us to right direction with accuratcy. He refreshed air and calm us down when my wife and I was not hold patietnce during the long immigrAtion process. He is a passionate person that even though there is 14 hours of time difference between my country and US, he responded my question as quickly as possible to give us an answer. His high work ethic ,accurate judgment , professional experience should be respected and highly recommended. If anyone need someone behind your back to Going through this battle of immigration process, Peter is RIGHT person for you. The day when you finally see your wife/hushand and hold them in your arm, you will remember Peter and appreciate of his team-work. I hope my thought and experience can help you.

Review
If you need an immigration attorney, look no further. Peter is your guy!!! I have consultations with other immigration lawyers before finding Peter but they are nothing like Peter. From the first consultation, you can really feel his concern, how passionate he is to his profession and how dedicated he is to helping out his clients. He made us feel comfortable throughout this whole process. It was a last minute decision to look for a lawyer for my case but I’m so glad that I did and found Peter (Thank you to everyone here that left reliable reviews and great testimonials about Peter, I can assure anyone reading this everything you read here is so accurate of how Peter is). Also a shout out to Allison for helping me out get a last minute appointment with Peter, I really appreciate you. We only had over 2 weeks left to work on my case before the interview date, but with Peter’s help and guidance we made it all happen. He gave me a checklist on what documents to prepare, it was so thorough and I would have never thought about bringing and preparing half of the things on the list if we were on our own and without professional help. Peter responds promptly to every questions I have, he works fast and efficient, he kept us motivated and confident with all the advices he gave. He prepared us so well that we felt so at ease. It was a huge weight of my shoulder to have a kind and empathetic lawyer like Peter, Even after the interview he would give prompt updates about the case status up until I got a schedule for my oath ceremony! Thank you Peter I cannot express enough how grateful I am for all your guidance and help. This is life changing and it could not have been possible without you. Truly, you are God sent. God bless you a hundredfold!

The Best!
I am glad we found Peter as our attorney for my case. One thing I really like about Peter is he took our case personal from the start to finish, or may be he makes us feel that way which is great. He is very thorough with details and he works fast, a very trust worthy person I might add. I will definitely recommend him as attorney to anyone I know that needs help and I probably will be back to him later too if needed. As you know immigration process whatever the case is, it takes time. Trust your attorney, they know what they are doing.

Simply, THE BEST immigration attorney out there.
This may be a lengthy review - I couldn't find a shorter way to describe my case. It's worth knowing that when things seem to get "complicated" in some legal immigration cases, you have the support of an AMAZING attorney, such as Peter, makes everything go smoothly and increases the chance of success. Peter and I go way back! I first hired him in 2013 to apply for a Green Card - being an immigrant in a new country you definitely want to have the best representation, and the best backup team. We all know how challenging it can be to get permanent status in the US, and all of the insecurities that come along with that. Since my first phone call with Peter, I knew that he was going to have my back and be there for me, fighting for my case. He was a solid choice. After a very pleasant and successful meeting with him we decided to file all of my paperwork. I got my work permit within weeks from filing and later on, about 3 months, I got my Green Card - the usual wait time back then was from 6mo. to a year! I got mine way faster than if I had done it on my own. Unfortunately, my case would take an unexpected turn - I would be filing for divorce within the 2 year grace period before being able to get the 10 year Green Card. I honestly thought I was going to be denied or even deported. Long story short, Peter came through once again! We filed for a petition to still consider my case to be in good faith so that I could obtain my 10-year Green Card. After a bit of wait, I finally GOT IT! It was unbelievable. Years would pass. Peter kept checking in and reminding me that I was eligible to apply for citizenship. I honestly thought I would stay as a Permanent Resident for the rest of my life, but after considering all the options and seeing the positives of becoming a citizen, we decided to file for my naturalization in November of 2021. After a short wait, I got my interview date. If I ever had a question, doubt or I was nervous about my soon-to-come interview, Peter was there for me. He responded to all of my phone calls and all of my sometimes anxious emails. He always reassured me that there was nothing to worry about, and that I had a solid case despite what I thought. He definitely gave me the confidence I needed. On the day of my interview he came all the way to San Francisco to be with me throughout the whole process! It definitely made a huge difference to have his support and encouragement in the waiting room, as well as DURING the interview. Everything worked out in the end. The interview was short, solid and there was not a single issue. I was even able to take my oath the SAME DAY of the interview! And, a month later got my passport in the mail. Unreal. Peter was there EVERY step of the way, from 2013 all the way to me getting my Citizenship this year. He used to tell me that he wasn't going to rest until I obtained my US citizenship, and once again, he proved that he was dedicated to me and to my case. I cannot thank him enough for his help, support, attention to detail, professionalism, positivity, and just his great attitude and personality. You really get a sense that he genuinely cares about his clients. He's TRULY a great attorney, a great human, and now after all these years of getting to know him, a good friend. MUCHAS GRACIAS, Peter! Could not have done it without you.

The Best immigration attorney in Sacramento area!
You must know that you are in the right hands if Peter Kyung is handling your immigration case. Peter has seamlessly helped me right from acquiring my Green Card till my Citizenship/Naturalization ceremony. Throughout this journey I felt like a family member is handling my case, as Peter has always been accessible to me with prompt responses to my questions. He is attentive, knowledgeable and highly professional. Peter’s compassion toward his clients is impeccable, you will have no room for any worries with him. He feels strongly for his client's welfare and is passionate towards each case that he handles. It is hard to believe that there are still some professionals who would go beyond the regular "above and beyond" to help their clients, but in Peter's case its true. Needless to say, that during my immigration journey I felt extremely safe, well informed and confident under Peter's guidance and I can't thank him enough. I would highly recommend anyone in need of an immigration lawyer to speak to Attorney Peter Kyung. He is THE BEST.

Excellent immigration lawyer on our green card case
It has been a first-rate experience having Peter represent us in our marriage green card application case. Throughout the whole process, ever since the first consultation, he has demonstrated his professional expertise in the procedures and pertinent immigration policies, profound dedication to the work he does, as well as warm personality. At every step, Peter provided us with meticulous guidance, informative and timely (fast even on weekends or late hours) respondance to every question we came up with, and detailed feedback on the required documents/proofs we collected. He also kept us informed with every update from USCIS as soon as they came out. Our case eventually got approved without the requirement of an interview, due to how well the case was prepared by Peter. We are very satisfied with the result and the experience and would absolutely recommend Peter to those seeking immigration lawyers.

East or West, Peter is the best :)
Peter has been my attorney since 2017 when I first applied for K1 visa. Less than a month ago, I became a citizen and all because of Peter’s support! He has been supporting my husband and I through this whole journey. Peter has been very professional, going above and beyond to make sure our applications are complete and also practicing interviews with me. He has the knowledge of how everything takes place in reality and thus he prepared me for that. He is very responsive at any time of the day. My husband and I even bet on whether Peter responds at 11pm within 10 minutes or not and he always does :) Each of my processes took significantly less time than predicted and though it might be due to luck or USCIS’s waiting times, I do believe that due to Peter’s diligence, there were no questions unanswered on the application. I can confidently say that it’s because of Peter that I was able to make this journey from K1 application to a citizen. Peter does not only see his clients as cases but as people and individuals that want to be united with their loved ones. Peter certainly loves his job or he wouldn’t be so good at it, and he definitely is a great professional and human overall. Though sad that our client-attorney journey came to an end, I am sure that I will get back to him for any future questions and will continue recommending him to friends and family. Thank you, Peter, for all you do!
