Recommend this Lawyer, The team helped me get my case approved Jay and Kimmi team helped me with my CR1 spouse immigration visa. I have applied US visa for H1B or EB2 for 3 years, and were pending all the time. When my husband found Jay and Kimmi Team, asked their help to file CR1 immigration visa for me, it is game changer. The team filed paper work correctly and promptly. My husband got 1-130 approval in 3 months. My application materials were send to NVC right away. Due to COVID-19, US embassy was closed, but I still got the interview spot on the first day when the US embassy re-open. I passed my interview and got the CR1 visa in Oct this year. It is a quite fast process during the pandemic! I am really appreciative for Jay's team help. They are awesome.
Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

I am Managing Immigration Attorney at Terkiana, Inc., a law firm based in Silicon Valley, California, primarily focusing on Employment, Family, Business, Investment, and Complex Immigration matters. I never forget that I am an immigrant, who came to the United States as an F-1 student and had to navigate the entire immigration process myself when all the odds were stacked against me. Therefore, for me practicing immigration law is not just a business. It's personal.

I have assisted thousands of clients (including individuals, start-ups, small businesses and large corporations) in successfully petitioning for employment-based immigration cases, specially H-1B, L-1A, L-1B, EB-1A, EB-1B, EB-1C, National Interest Waivers (NIW), O-1, EB-2/EB-3 PERM, EB-5, TN, E-2, Adjustment of Status/Green Cards. I have assisted clients in some of the most challenging immigration cases, where they were facing very complex issues like unlawful presence, out of status, deportation, inadmissibility, 3/10-year bar, criminal convictions with severe immigration consequences. In addition to immigrant & non-immigrant visas, my experience also includes answering Request for Evidence (RFE), assistance with 601 hardship & inadmissibility waivers, filing Motion to Reopen (MTR) or Appeal against the denials, assistance during Department of Labor/USCIS Site Visits, I-9 Compliance, Reinstatement of Status, LGBT Immigration Cases, U-Visas, VAWA, R-1, handling Department of Labor (DOL) and Immigration Audits, and assisting in lawsuits arising from benching/back-wages claims.

After having personally gone through many of these critical processes & experiences myself, spending many years representing individual & corporate clients, and successfully handling thousands of immigration cases; I am confident that if you entrust me with the responsibility to handle your immigration case, I will deliver the best.
