I am very grateful to Lim Law Firm for their help in my successful process of obtaining a ten-year green card. I want to express my deep gratitude.

Since my case was relatively complex, I did not seek help from a lawyer at first and tried to handle it myself, but I took many detours. During the first interview, due to lack of preparation and lack of some materials, the immigration officer severely questioned me, leaving many hidden dangers during the interview process. Later, I turned to Lim Law Firm for help. Through the unremitting efforts of Lawyer Lim and Penny, they conducted a detailed analysis of the interview situation at that time and helped me prepare various materials.

After half a year of waiting, when the Immigration Service asked me to supplement my materials, I successfully submitted the materials I had prepared. Fortunately, I avoided a second interview and obtained my green card directly. Penny kept reminding me to add materials throughout the process, and it was when I almost gave up that I came to an unexpected turning point. I am very pleased to have a successful partnership with Attorney Lim and Penny. I consulted with many other law firms before this, but I'm glad I made the right choice in the end. If I need to apply to citizenship in the future, I will still choose Attorney Lim. Thanks again for their help.

I would like to wish others success and all the best in their future lives in the United States.

I found this law firm online last year to apply for marriage immigration. Lawyer Lin's team is very serious and responsible, especially Ms. Penny, who is very serious and rigorous in filling out the documents for our marriage, and is also very patient in explaining to us what documents are more perfect, more trustworthy. The green card was approved within a week. The Immigration Service received the information on 10-12-2023 and I received the two-year green card on 10-21-2023. I am very lucky to have such a good team of lawyers. Thank you very much🙏I’m really happy and I don’t need to go to the interview.

I needed to get a prenuptial agreement finished before my wedding date. I called around and was getting frustrated with a lot of the previous attorneys I have contacted and was about to give up.

This was until I was able to find the Law Offices of Derek Lim.

I was able to call the office and was able to easily book an appointment to meet at Mr. Lim's office in Fremont. I drove over there and got a consultation. Mr. Lim was a man of his word. I immediately filled out a questionnaire, signed a contract, and was given a checklist of what information I needed to prepare to get my prenup drafted and on the way.

Throughout the process of working with Mr. Lim and his office, communication was easy, transparent, and smooth.

Within a month and a half, I have a prenuptial agreement completed, signed by all parties, and notarized by UPS. I am on my way to the married life.

Hello! We write this letter with great excitement, and we sincerely express our respect and gratitude to Derek Lim.

We were denied by the consulate when applying for an immigrant visa, which made it impossible for us to reunite. Later, we found Derek Lim Law Offices through the introduction of our friends. After listening to our demands carefully and patiently, we studied and formulated our visa exemption conditions with lawyer Lim's team as soon as possible. After communicating with us many times, you have not forgotten to comfort us and fill us with confidence.

After the unremitting efforts of Derek Lim, we finally successfully applied for our visa exemption and officially received the visa given to us by the consulate. We were extremely excited and happy, and the stone in our hearts finally fell.

Once again, I would like to thank Lawyer Derek Lim and the staff of his team for the whole process. It is your excellent professional skills that made us finally reunited.

After that, they also follow up with us many times to make sure if we have any other problems until we got the Visa. I am so glade to give them great rate here about excellent services.

In March 2019, I had an accident in the company's parking lot during office hours and got injured with bone fracture for my hand. At that time, I was so helpless as I have never thought I would be get involved in any lawsuit with the help of any attorneys, and I do not even know any. One of my friends referred Derek Lim, and after we talked with them, we decide to work with Derek's office for my work compensation and personal injury case. Derek and Christine were very professional and accountable for my case, and they have been presenting me to contact with the Fire Department, Police department, HR, insurance company and help us to look for the doctors for best treatment. They are also working with the other party responsible for this accident to identify the root cause and responsibility.

During this 2 years' long journey, Derek and his office are always quickly responsive to any question either from me or the third party. And I really enjoy to work with his team and I can be completely hands-off from my complicated case as I fully trust their expertise.

Finally, my case eventually got settled, and we are pretty satisfied with the final results. I highly recommend Derek Lim's Law Office if you have any question for work compensation and personal injury.

I found Lawyer Lim in July last year. At that time, I encountered a problem with naturalization and needed to provide some supporting documents and explain some of the contents of the case. At that time, Penny was the one who received us. She was very professional and patient, and helped us solve the problem step by step. I finally received the oath notice from the Immigration Bureau in August this year. Thank you very much to Penny and Lawyer Lim, they are worth recommending!

- Stephen A.

Me and my husband had no idea about the immigration application process. We were pretty scared that we might mess up the application. Later, I found Mr. Lim's office online which had a pretty good rating. I made an appointment with Mr. Lim and told him about my case and asked him about the process. He explained it clearly and professionally, so I decided to hire him.

Whenever I have questions I called to the lawyer office or emailed them. They responded fast and gave me an effective answer. After we give them required information, we didn't need to worry about anything. They filed the application and submitted the application as well as emailed/called me for my immigration case updates.

I have less stress about loads of immigration paperwork because of them. We filed our application during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Every application process was delayed. So I thought my case might also delay. Surprisingly, I got my interview in 10 months. Our case got approved. They emailed me and called me for the result on the same day after the interview. I am so happy with the result. Thanks to Mr. Lim and Penny!

Before hiring Mr. Derek Lim's Law Office, my I-485 Adjust status from student visa to permanent resident case was pending for a few years after my first interview. I did't hear anything from USCIS and my case was not moving forward at all. Finally, I realized I had to hire a lawyer in order to make progress on my case. I did some research online and found the firm. They have years of experience in immigration law, even complicated immigration cases. I reached Mr. Lim's office and had them handled my case. I am so glad I chose them. Derek, Christine and Penny are very professional and knowledgeable about Immigration matters. They are honest and know what they are doing. Mr. Derek Lim sorted out my situation, answered all my questions and guided me step by step. Penny did lots of paperwork and always responsive and friendly when it comes to answering my concerns. I got a second interview in San Francisco not long after I hired them. The result is my case got approved and I received my green card. I couldn't be happier with their service and would definitely recommend them to people who need assistance with their immigration issues.

Service: Green Card / Immigration Service

Like most people I tried to save some money and tried to process getting a Green Card without legal console but it proved difficult and my first attempt resulted in failure. I reached out to the Law Office of Derek Lim to secure their services. I worked with Penny a lot, she was great and well versed in immigration requirements. They took care of the crazy amount of paper work and guided me through the painful process.

During the Green Card interview it was clear almost everyone hired legal console with some even bringing their lawyers on site during the interview. Since I felt my case was straight forward I didn't pay extra to have the lawyer present during the Green Card interview.

With the help of Penny and Law Office of Derek Lim Green Card I can say Green Card is secure. If I had to do it all over again I would have seeked legal console and avoided all the lost time and money attempting it myself.

I reached to Mr. Derek Lim about my immigration case in 2020. I was not familiar about transition from work visa to family-based PR visa. Also, considering the pandemic situation, many things became unpredictable and worrisome.

I found Mr. Derek on line and talked to Christine Chao at the beginning. She listened to my case carefully, and discussed with the team thoroughly before answering my questions. Christine asked me several questions to ensure that they were able to deal with my case. It made me feel they're reliable and dependable. Therefore I decided to continue to work with the team.

It was the first time I worked with an attorney. During the application process, they guided me through each process patiently and professionally.

Worked with them during the application process gave me a lot of confidence and faith under the unprecedented situation. Fortunately i received my green card in August 2021. I appreciate all the helps and guidance that I got from the team, and I highly recommend to people who also needs professional attorney regarding immigration at Bay Area.

In a very short notice for our multiple quit claims, Christine Zhao laid out all detail on what documents were needed, what we needed to do, and when the county recording expected to arrive....and right away the sweet assistant Penny Wu carried on all operation flows and paperworks. Mr. Derek Lim (lawyer) spent couple free hours and walked through the details and explained the law/rules to us, the entire end to end experience with The Law Office of Derek Lim was wonderful and stressless, I knew I was in great hands!

I hired the Law Offices of Derek Lim because they succeeded for helping me to process my serious car accident. I trust their efforts and services.

Thank you very much to the Law Offices of Derek Lim for helping me apply for my spouse to immigrate to the United States. I appreciate for their professional, know all immigration requirements, and could fill out the immigration forms easily for me. When the Immigration Office asked for the married evidence, they were also known well to help me to prepare all the necessary documents for approval of my marriage. Of course, the Immigration Office approved my marriages without asking more questions.

Because of the epidemic, the husband's immigration approval was postponed until recently. But everything goes smoothly, the Law Offices of Derek Lim explained the immigration process well, efficiently, organized documents well, professional trust, and detailed responsibilities!

Thanks again to Christine, Penny, Vivan and anyone who helped our case successfully. I and my husband really satisfied for their professional services. Best wishes to the the Law Offices of Derek Lim.
