WHAT CLIENTS SAY ABOUT US
I have been in this country 20 years. 20 years ago, I applied for asylum application. Despite my merits, Immigration Judges, both in Atlanta and New York, denied my application. The Board of Immigration Appeal dismissed my appeal. While I almost gave up any hope, Law Office of Joan Xie wrote an excellent brief to the Federal Court of Appeal. The Federal Court revised my case and Law Office of Joan Xie eventually won the asylum for me. I deeply appreciated my attorney's excellent service. Without them, I had to close my restaurant and took my US born children back to China.
I am a director of Boston Symphony Orchestra. Law Office of Joan Xie helped our new violinist to obtain O-1 visa. They are extremely experienced and efficient. I could not believe that we received the O-1 approval notice within one month of submission. Their fee is reasonable and service is top notch. I now recommend all our new musicians to use this law firm.
I had a deportation order in absentia 15 years ago because I failed to appear in the immigration court. Later, I married with a United States Citizen and was unable to adjust my status because of the past deportation order. I have never expected my case could be reopened after 15 years. Law Office of Joan Xie not only reopened my case, but also won the case for me. Now I am a naturalized citizen myself. Law Office of Joan Xie saved me and my family’s future.
I am a United States Citizen. My wife is a Chinese. I applied green card for her to join me in the United States. Despite our marriage is true and genuine, American Consulate General in China denied my wife’s visa because I was married twice before and my wife came from Fuzhou Province. Law Office of Joan Xie helped me and my wife to persuade the Consulate General. My wife is now happily living together with me in the United States.
