O-1 for extraordinary ability
Canadian eyelash artist, Ga Young “Christina” Son, received a tough Request for Evidence on her case, which was handled by another attorney. Our office advised Ms. Son on how to bolster certain areas of the application which were targeted in the RFE, in particular the claim by the Immigration Service that she did not have solid employment lined up. In November 2016, Ms. Son’s case was approved. She writes:
“My experience with Jane is rather different than mostly others. I didn’t start my O1 process with Jane. I was already working with another lawyer on my file and I reached out to Jane for her assistance. My visa process was beyond emotionally frustrating as I have been trying to get it for approximately 4 years. My case was very challenging. I am a lash artist and I was told by many lawyers that I had very little hope mostly because my field is too specialized and I have worked with lawyers in the past who gave up on me. My experience overall was very discouraging. I was on the verge of giving up. Jane gave me her advice and recommendations and helped me prepare a couple of documents. I finally got an approved O1 visa and I know that those documents Jane helped me prepare and her recommendations played crucial role in getting me my O1 visa. She is a highly respected expert with wealth of knowledge in this field. There are no words to express my gratitude and I can’t thank her enough. Jane is incredibly detail oriented and sharp and you will immediately recognize it. She is all about detail and precise work. Even though we didn’t work together from the start, I can assure you she cares about her clients and their outcome. Jane was not obligated to continue speaking with me after her assistance but she continued to check up on me to see how things were and she was the first person to congratulate me on my visa approval. I found out about my visa approval from Jane. I was really touched that she kept me in her mind and went above and beyond to check up on my status and as soon as I saw that “Congratulations!!!” on the subject line of my email, I was in complete disbelief and literally broke down in tears. I trust her work and guidance wholeheartedly. I will continue using her services and strongly recommend her to anyone looking for an O1 expert.”
아이래쉬 아티스트 손가영님은 다른 변호사와 O-1 비자를 진행하시던 중 추가서류 요청을 받으시고 저희 사무실을 찾아오셨습니다. 클라이언트의 근무경력이 견고하지 못하다는 USCIS의 주장을 반박하기 위해 저희 사무실은 서류의 보강이 필요한 부분을 세밀히 도와드렸으며, 그 결과 2016년 11월에 O-1 비자 승인을 받으셨습니다.
“저의 케이스는 일반적인 케이스와는 조금 다른 경우로, 저는 다른 변호사 사무실에서 O-1 절차를 먼저 진행했습니다. 저는 O-1 비자를 받기 위해 약 4년 동안 노력해왔지만 물리적, 심리적으로 모두 쉽지 않은 상황이었습니다. 아이래쉬 아티스트라는 분야가 아직 널리 알려져 있지 않은 분야였기 때문에 많은 변호사들이 제 케이스에 대해 회의적이었고, 과거에 제 케이스를 진행하던 도중 포기한 변호사들도 있었습니다. 저 또한 비자에 대해 포기하려던 직전 제인 변호사의 도움을 받았고, 제인과 함께 준비했던 서류들은 비자 승인을 받는 데 매우 중요한 역할을 했습니다. 제인 변호사와 케이스를 진행해보시면 얼마나 꼼꼼하고 정확하게 케이스에 신경을 쓰는지 알 수 있으실 것입니다. 또한 제인은 수시로 저의 케이스 진행상황에 대해 체크해주었고, 제 비자 승인을 첫 번째로 축하해주신 분이기도 합니다. 이처럼 변호사님께 감사한 마음은 말로 다 표현하기가 어려울 정도입니다. 저는 향후에도 변호사님의 도움을 받을 예정이며, O-1 비자 전문가를 찾으시는 분들에게 제인을 자신있게 추천합니다.”
