[Successful Case Share] Non-Immigration Adjustment of Status and Family-Based Green Card Application

The client Hongyan Ma commented,"I was recently informed by Causey & Ye Law that I passed the green card interview. I was very excited. There were not enough words to express my gratefulness to the law firm. I was lucky to have Causey & Ye Law by my side these last two years since I arrived in the U.S. They played an important role in my happy life. At first, I had waited three months for the application of the adjustment of my son's status to F-2. I hesitated when I called Attorney Ye to consult her. She told me that she was very busy but she would make inquiries to USCIS about my application. My son was very upset about transferring school. That's why I really hoped Attorney Ye could help me accelerate the process of changing status. She comforted and helped me when I needed the help most as an anxious mother, although this was not a part of her job as an Attorney. She made me feel warm and kind as we were both Chinese. With her help, my son was admitted by his dream-school at the beginning of the second year. Since then, as a mother, I confirmed Attorney Ye's incredible professional abilities and kindness to people. I met my current husband and married him in the second year. My husband and son wanted me to stay in the U.S. with them. I contacted Attorney Ye immediately. After a brief intake consultation, I met her at the office in Downtown Des Moines. She gave us a detailed list of documents that we needed to prepare for a green card petition. She also suggested that we prepare documents for my son's petition so that he could apply it later. With my previous experience with the law firm, I completely trusted her and followed her instructions. Then I went to the fingerprint appointment, received my Employment Authorization Card and passed the final interview. Attorney Ye gave us a one-hour mock interview and checked with us many times to make sure we were ready, and documents were complete. She even went to the interview with us. During the interview, she was sitting behind me. She helped me answer some questions when I was too nervous to phrase my words because of my English-speaking skills. I couldn't thank her more at that moment. According to my two cases, I understood that Causey & Ye Law had excellent professional abilities. Their process of service, the speed of processing cases and submissions, following up a case and final feedback was great. I could feel each of their staff was working hard and serving clients with passion. I heard they had a couple of branch offices in other cities to help the local Chinese. I was happy for them. I felt proud to have such an excellent Chinese Attorney in the community. I hope Causey & Ye Law's business can thrive and their cases will be successful. I hope every Chinese can think of Attorney Ye when they need help. She is the pride of Chinese community! Thank you for your help. I am really grateful to Causey & Ye Law!”

We arrived
to the U.S. in May of 2015. We had no relatives, and we had no knowledge about immigration. The Chinese Association of Iowa introduced us to Attorney Ye. After several meetings with Attorney Ye, I found that she was very honest and strict. I finally decided to hire Attorney Ye to be our immigration Attorney. When my immigration documents were prepared, Attorney Ye was very patient and she provided me legal advice. She reviewed my files carefully. She highlighted key issues and clearly presented the facts to me. During this period, Attorney Ye not only was patient but also efficient. It only took her three months to submit my files to USCIS, from the date y case was opened. She saved us a great deal of time! Before our interview with USICS, Attorney Ye was serious and responsible. Even though she had to train us for the interview several times, she was never tired of going through the training. She helped us so that we were able to completely understand the entire interview process. On the day of interview, she flew from Iowa to New Orleans and spent her precious time so that she could accompany us to the interview. Her being present made us very confident and encouraged! We greatly appreciate Attorney Ye's effort and devotion to our case, and we thank her for her hard work.

Congratulation to Attorney Jonathan M. Causey on being nationally ranked as "National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys Top 10 under 40" for his excellence in the field of Criminal Law in 2017! The National Academy of Criminal Defense Attorneys uses a thorough selection process to determine the top criminal defense attorneys in each state. With thousands of attorneys in each state, the NACDA's rigorous, independent selection process resolves the challenge of attorneys claiming to be "the best" without the basis for such claims. For the accused, finding a well-qualified criminal defense attorney is imperative, and the NACDA's process leaves no doubt as to whom the preeminent criminal defense attorneys are:
• The attorneys who make the NACDA list must first be nominated by a licensed practicing attorney or one of our in-house research staff members.
• Second, the NACDA research staff verifies the nominated individuals meet the minimum requirements of membership in the NACDA.
• The NACDA processing committee selects a portion of the nominated attorneys to advance to the final selection stage.
• Then Board of Governors officially selects the Top 10 in each state.

NACDA Top 10 Badge is designed to give clients the confidence that comes in knowing that Attorney Jonathan M. Causey has earned the prestigious honor of being one of our nation's most premier criminal defense attorneys.
