Client Testimonials

“After 6 months of getting nowhere working with another law firm, we found and hiring KahBo was the BEST decision we ever made! KahBo was quick to begin the process of meeting our goal of permanent residency. She was proactive, honest, and realistic about the expectation, filing process, USCIS procures, and timelines and never sugar-coated anything. She was honest and never gave us false hope but her knowledge and work ethic made us feel very comfortable and hopeful. She spent time with us to put together a package to present to USCIS that helped us reach our goal of permanent residency. Take it from us, choosing the right lawyer matters so much. Despite the slowness of the USCIS because of the Covid 19 pandemic my partner received a green card less than a year of filing. Thank you so much KahBo for taking our case.” — Victor Viriyapunt  (Kantachart Tharaboriboon)

“I was referred to KahBo Dye-Chiew by a friend for renewing a still valid but very old permanent resident’s card. I could not have been happier with the recommendation! I was anxious, but KahBo gave me assurance, and led me through the process quickly and efficiently in a single meeting. Within two days the application had been submitted, and three weeks later acceptance and biometrics appointment had been completed. With the pandemic, a wait of up to 12 months for the card to arrive was possible, but the card, together with KahBo’s comprehensive instructions on responsibilities and other details of continuing residency, arrived within seven months. Thanks to KahBo, this has been one of the best (and most reasonable) investments of my whole, rather long life!” Ian C.

From a client email:  “KahBo, I wanted to let you know that at my E-2 interview, the consular officer asked me who prepared the folder of documents.  I gave her the name of your law firm and she commented that the folder was well organized and concise and one of the best she has seen.”  CC Foo, Owner, Sienna Fine Foods dba Butterfly Ice-Cream.

“Our company has trusted KahBo Dye-Chiew with our company’s immigration needs since November 2000, including my own personal case. Getting the right legal help for immigration can be confusing, but our employees know that with KahBo, they will get a quick response to emails, accurate advice, and secure handling of sensitive information. KahBo’s personal attention to each case makes us confident that all documents are being processed correctly and in a timely manner.” — Shinji Hirano, Executive Vice President (Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.)

“Working with Ms. KahBo Dye-Chiew on my immigration cases was a very positive experience. Any time I had questions or concerns, I was pleasantly surprised by the speed of her response. She constantly made me feel that my case was at the top of her agenda.” — Saeid Pourjalal, Mechanical Engineer

“A quick word of thanks for the excellent job KahBo Dye-Chiew did to help me obtain my permanent residency card. I have used the services of several lawyers to apply for educational and professional visas. Of the attorneys I have used, none came even close to the professional attitude and personal service that I have received from KahBo.  What distinguishes KahBo Dye-Chiew from several other attorneys is that she knows the details of your case, is quick to respond to your questions, is honest, generous with her time, very polite, reliable and supportive. If you are looking for an excellent immigration lawyer, who cares about the person behind the case, I strongly encourage you to contact KahBo Dye-Chiew. You will get professional help in your immigration matters plus outstanding service. I feel that this is one of the reasons why KahBo Dye-Chiew was voted Best Immigration Lawyer in Hawaii of the year 2007 by Honolulu Magazine… Mahalo, KahBo!” — Iris van der Zander, Ph.D., Environmental Scientist

“You are a consummate professional and someone that we have no problem speaking highly about.” — Rodney Saito, Principal, Freitas and Saito, CPAs

“We decided to hire KahBo because of the problems that three of our employees were having with the immigration lawyer we were using. Unlike our previous legal counsel, we found KahBo to be sympathetic to the needs of our employees and she was able to successfully resolve our immigration issues. She will be my first choice should our company face future immigration difficulties.”  — Howard West, Vice-President, Environmental Science International, Inc.
