Best immigration lawyer.

“I hired Bruce to help me with my green card process and he did a very thorough and exceptional job. He was always available anytime to answer all my questions or concerns. He always went above and beyond to help me with my case. I’ve hired attorneys in the past but very few are like Bruce, since he actually cares about his client and he’s not in it to waste your time and money. Bruce made sure to take the time and go over all the paperwork very thoroughly before submitting it to immigration. He’s a very genuine guy, and my green card arrived in the mail extremely fast without any problems. Thank you again Bruce, you’ve earned a customer for life. I highly recommend Bruce for all your immigration needs.”

Before you spend hours searching for answers, talk to him!

“Contacting bruce and having his counsel on my Greencard process was one of the best decisions I made. Bruce helped me filing for and obtaining my green card. I was trying to file it on my own initially, had confidence in my preparedness. But in the very last minutes, there were some concerns around a key item. Also, I got cautious looking at this current immigration climate. I called numerous attorneys in DC but Bruce was the one who was really quick, understanding and flexible. During the very first meeting, I was able to resolve some of my concerns that worried me. This immigration process is once in a lifetime type of decision, so, even if you are confident, I highly recommend contacting someone like Bruce to save you from looking into online sources that do not fit your own situation.”

“Bruce helped me to get my H1B visa when I first started working for my current employer. He also helped me to work on my H1B visa renewal after I held it for three years. There were a number of changes in H1B visa policy at that time, and Bruce worked very diligently to research and understand the changes. He prepared very strong and clear documents to support my case. I was able to get my H1B visa renewal successfully. In sum, the experience with Bruce was wonderful. He is not only a professional and knowledgeable lawyer, he is also very thoughtful and kind person. If anyone needs an immigration lawyer, I will highly recommend him.”

Well done job

“My husband and I hired Bruce for him to provide advice and support for getting my green card. We had three meetings during the whole 1-year-long process. He gave us all the information related to dates, documents to gather and deadlines. He reviewed in detail all the forms involved and filed the case in time on our behalf. He was receptive to all our questions and answered our emails or phone calls quickly and efficiently. In every meeting, he showed knowledge and made us feel comfortable.”

He is really good lawyer with expert knowledge and kind personality.

“Bruce Yamashita helped my change of visa status. I got married with an U.S. citizen in my post-graduation OPT year. But during my marriage process, I realized my OPT grace period had been over because I hadn’t started to work, which means that I needed to leave U.S. as soon as possible. I worried that my presence in the U.S. became illegal, so I consulted him and my spouse and I hired him to help me remain with a legal status. He worked very effectively to file my change of status to marriage green card. In addition, before I received the green card, he totally supported to file all documents for my legal residency and work permit as well as travel permit. He was so encouraging, kind, organized, and helpful until I successfully received my green card. I highly recommend him as a expert immigration lawyer.”

H – 1B Temporary Work Visa

“Bruce helped our company secure an H-1B work visa for a prospective employee from South America. He expertly prepared and filed the petition and documentation. He then navigated us through the lottery, and a request for evidence (RFE). It was a long road, but with an excellent result. As I am very busy, I appreciated the personal service: the quick response to any question or complication. We always felt like our case was a top priority. I recommend Bruce Yamashita enthusiastically. He is absolutely top-notch.”

Best of the Best

“Mr. Bruce is the best attorney I have ever met. I hired him for my mother’s green card application, and it was a long and winding road to receive it. Mr. Bruce’s work was always reliable and accurate throughout the process; also he gave me the practical time frame at the time of each step, so that I could make myself settled without being worried over. He provided us good suggestions and tips for the important milestones to make the flow smooth – for example – my mother was totally and comfortably ready for the interview at the US Embassy in Japan. He is always very friendly and gentle, and took care of not only my case, but also my mother and myself as his family – I really did feel so. My mother got an approval for entering the US about a year later since we stared, it was a long and winding road, but I am extremely grateful for everything Mr. Bruce has done for making this happen. Mr. Bruce is the best of the best.”
