I-140 approved! 5.0 stars
Very intelligent and hardworking law firm. Chela Marquez did an outstanding job. Someone mentioned Wong to me about a year ago and I went straight to them. The person who recommended Wong said she has the ability to turn a bad situation into a good one and they proved it to me! I intentionally approached another attorney with my case and they took a one look at it and called it “weak”, using only one criteria but Wong and her team know how to look at cases from every angle and do a good job! I am happy with my outcome and I thank you guys for a good job!

The process is long but they are using the time to present a great case as well. They assisted me also in a bad H1B case, so I have used them twice! My I-140 has been approved and paves the way for my green card issuance. Thank you Margaret Wong and Associates. Thank you Chela. – UA
