What Our Clients Say

 - I had a wonderful experience with Immigration law practice and in particular with Chen Zhang, Esq.  I apply for green card in the NIW category. The process went really smoothly. Mr. Zhang was always very clear and knowledgeable about the procedure and the needed materials.  Each of my question has always been answered promptly and comprehensively. The interaction with Mr. Zhang was very easy.  I never had to interact with third parties or wait for more than few hours to receive any answer.  I felt supported and confident during the entire process. I was able to receive the approval for my petition in less than one month...a record I think."

I had the most wonderful experience with my lawyer, Mr. Chen Zhang with the Immigration Law Practice of Washington Trade Counsel. His professional manner and expert handling of my I-140 petition enabled the approval of my EB1a case in less than 15 days!! His personal attention to detail made me feel very comfortable and secure as a client. He has thorough knowledge about the presentation and content of such immigration petitions. I shall remain ever grateful to him for his par excellence service, and highly endorse him for all immigration related cases.
- Mantej Chhina,  US Food & Drug Administration

It was a pleasant and comfortable experience for me to retain my EB1-B I-140 immigration application with the Immigration Law Practice of Washington Trade Counsel.  Mr. Zhang was kindly patient and prompt to answer all my questions about how to present and search supporting materials in an absolutely professional manner so that I was able to prepare in the right direction. With his superior experience, my weak case was presented in a strong and clear format, therefore grabbed immigration officer’s attention impressively.  My I-140 was approved in one and half a month and I was very happy with the outcome. I really appreciate the help he has rendered me.

Before my wife and I met Dr. Zhang, we consulted several immigration attorneys whether we could apply for EB1a, alien of extraordinary ability. Every attorney we met except Dr. Zhang thought our background was too weak for the EB1a application. Only Dr. Zhang took our case for the EB1a application. Dr. Zhang devoted a lot of efforts to the petition of my case and my I-140 was approved within 15 days after submission. My wife and I could not believe, but it indeed happened. My wife and I genuinely appreciate Dr. Zhang. With his efforts and help, we can pursue our American dream. ---- Simon, a postdoc from NIH

I meant to tell you how impressed I am with the application and you did a superb job. I would recommend you guys at any day !

Mr. Zhang has conducted himself in a very professional manner.  He has been kind, considerate and prompt in answering my correspondence with him. Without his help, I would have had much difficulty being able to bring my wife to America from China.

---Arthur Coffey, Lenoir, North Carolina

Thanks a bunch for all the meticulous work you have done in preparing for the O-1 petition. Now, my NIW petition has been approved too! I have not met you guys once but I will be forever grateful for your legal assistance.

I could not believe my eyes and cross checked again and again the online status of approval. I believe the best decision i took was choosing your firm as my attorney. You guyes are amazing.  To be short, you delivered what you promised. I am from India and right now on H4. I contacted a lot of firms and all of them believed my case was really weak for EB-1A as i lacked reviewing experience. But when I contacted Chen Zhang, he instilled confidence in my case and believed he could get it done for me. He is very good and exactly knows what is to be done. He is easily approachable and answers all queries promptly. So I am extremely satisfied and very happy that I found the right counsel for my case.

I was trying to find a lawyer who was honest, approachable and reasonably priced for my EB1a application for green card. For 4 years I talked to different lawyers and everyone said that my CV was worth trying for EB1a but no one ever gave me exact cost of the whole process. I was really not sure if I had a strong case for EB1 and so I was looking for a lawyer who had fixed cost for the whole process. Mr. Chen Zhang was very open and honest about the whole process. He is very approachable and he even contacted me from China, when I tried to reach him. He has changed my impression about lawyers and like in any other profession, he is in one of the few good ones in his field. His office staff are very courteous to your queries and always there to help you. I think choosing Mr. Chen Zhang as my lawyer for filing my EB1 was one of the best decisons I made in life. I am really happy with his service and would surely recommend everyone to him.   --

I just got USCIS letter of my I-140 NIW approval and thank you for your kind help!

A Master in his Craft: Chen Zhang Esq.
I had a magnificent experience with my lawyer, Mr. Chen Zhang with the Immigration Law Practice of Washington Trade Counsel.  When we met my H-1B Visa was about to expire in about 18 months.  He spoke to me and shared my options which were to allow my institution to apply for my permanent residency or apply for myself through the national interest waiver. I applied for the national interest waiver and the case was approved! At that time my H1 time period had almost ended. To allow me permission to stay and work here in the USA, Mr. Zhang spoke to my director and advised him to file for an O-1 Visa (for individuals with extraordinary ability) for me. We did that and using premium processing. After extensive research Mr. Zhang proved the extraordinary abilities of a High school Science Teacher and my case was approved again. In a nutshell, both of my petitions were approved in a timely manner and there was no break in my status. Because of his knowledge, insight, expertise and effective aptitude I am forever grateful to Mr. Zhang and I give him my highest endorsement for all legal matters related to immigration.

We had a wonderful experience with our Immigration lawyer Chen Zhang, Esq.  for our  EB1(a) and NIW cases.  Mr. Zhang was very confident with our case, a rather complicated one because of multiple issues. His diligence, patience and commitment throughout the process were as remarkable as his willingness to provide clarifications in depth.  Overall, we owe a great deal to his clarity and experience on the required documentations.  His thoroughness with the case presentation led to the approval of our difficult case in both EB1a and EB2 (NIW) in less than 3 months!!! We are impressed with his excellent service, and highly endorse him for the immigration related cases.

After Mr. Chen Zhang served as my attorney and advisor for L-1A visa, I hold the firm in highest regard.  My entire experience has been phenomenal for several reasons:

1. Professionalism and courtesy.  Mr. Zhang and the Immigration Law Practice have shown clerical professionalism and courtesy in all of their services, whether it was simply responding back to my questions or submitting complete and well-drafted applications and forms to USCIS. Even though they work on my case in DC area, away from where I am, I feel I am very closely supported. 

2. Highly responsive attorney and technical staff at the Immigration Law Practice always responded quickly and efficiently whenever I had any questions or inquiry, even after business hours. 

3. Well knowledgeable and dedicated attorney.  Mr. Zhang not only showed in-depth knowledge about my case, but also devoted his time to conduct further legal research in law library to construct strong evidences and supportive arguments to respond adequently to USCIS' request for evidence. 

Mr. Zhang and his firm's thorough input and dedication in my case led to the approval of my L-1A visa.  I stronly recommend consulting Mr. Chen Zhang of the Immigration Law Practice of Washington Trade Counsel LLC for any one interested in L-1 visa or any other type of immigration law services.

Back in autumn 2012, I was recommended by my colleagues to call three prominent attorneys to pre-consult about my US immigration plan.  As per my initial consultation with Mr. Chen Zhang, he articulately guided me through the quagmire of US immigration processes and made me fee secure and confident that we had a strong case.  His expert legal/immigration perspectives also invigoratingly nourished my intellectual understanding of the EB2-NIW process.  Mr. Zhang perused my background and accomplishments insofar, helped me contruct a compelling case (and collate all pertinent documentations), and reassured my EB2-NIW application was indeed comprehensive.  My EB2-NIW application was officially received by USCIS as of October 2, 2012.  The approval notice was issued on December 17, 2012.  This means a mere 10 weeks of processing time only.  VERY IMPRESSIVE! I was and am still utterly thrilled! I am forever grateful for Mr. Zhang and his team for their practical legal/immigration expertise, efficient services and professionalism.  Actually we have never met face to face so far!
