Client Testimonials/reviews

KahBo Dye-Chiew is rated as one of Woodward-White’s Best Lawyers in America® in the area of Immigration in Honolulu. The honor is bestowed upon attorneys who are deemed superlative by their peers in an exhaustive ballot-voting process that includes several rounds of cuts in order to determine which lawyers are genuinely the best in their areas of practice.


I’m so glad I was under KahBo’s guidance! She’s simply amazing with what she does. Thank you so much, KahBo! I will be forever grateful with all your help!

“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.”

“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!”
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.

KahBo’s personal attention to each case makes us confident that all documents are being processed correctly and in a timely manner.”

“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!”
“You are a consummate professional and someone that we have no problem speaking highly about.”

“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.”
My husband found KahBo Dye-Chiew to do my immigration case in 2012, but there’s some personal reasons we didn’t finish my case.In 2022,I lost my lover -my husband. I have to do my immigration case again.I went back to looking for KahBo .This time it’s more difficult to do my case than the first time. KahBo did her best to support me and her professional ways made the process simple and clearly. Fortunately, I had her be with me to face a lot of challenges.Thanks for God, I found her-KahBo Dye-Chiew!




I started working with KahBo in 2016 to obtain my H1-B; she did great and got my H1-B on the first attempt. Since then, she has been my attorney for all my immigration processes, including H1-B renewal, H1-B transfer, and the Green Card process. Of course, she did great again on the whole GC process, and I obtained my Permanent Residency a couple of weeks ago. She is very knowledgeable and trustworthy. My employers and I are pleased with her work and assistance throughout all processes. I will definitely recommend KahBo to anybody who wants a reliable attorney and succeed in their immigration process.
KahBo brilliantly and intuitively handled my case. She understands what information is required, and organizes it for the most optimal result. She is realistic, reassuring and thoughtful: a consummate professional.




It is hard to believe that we have worked together in more than a dozen immigration cases (all successful!) spanning over twenty years. Incredible. Grateful!
KahBo help’s with this application process was vital. When we had concerns she answered and talked us through the issues. She helped us understand every step along the way, with what to expect and preparing. She answered all our questions and gave great guidance throughout the entire application.
