Example cases

I have successfully represented hundreds of cases with various immigration matters including those involving marriage, adoptions, removal or departation, Deffered Action Childhood Arrivals, H-1B work visas and other types of employment-based and family-based immigration.

I also was selected as a magistrate's advisor in the U.K. Court, regarding U.S. Immigration law and inter-country adoption matters.

How did your firm decide on the primary area of practice(s)?

Many of my family members are immigrants. My parents immigrated here decades ago so that we could have better lives and obtain higher education. I have firsthand experience of what many of my clients are going through while trying to make new lives here. It was an easy choice for me to go into immigration law

What is your firm's point of view regarding clients educating themselves on legal issues?

I think educating yourself on legal issues is good. But often times, there a lot of incorrect or inaccurate information out there. It is not a good idea to believe everything you "heard" from others or "read" on the internet. In many situations, it is beneficial to retain the services of a qualified attorney so your case will not be compromised.

Is your firm willing to review documents prepared by clients?

We do offer consultation for clients with specific questions about any forms or documents they may have at our hourly rate.

Is your firm willing to coach clients who want to represent themselves?

I think my job as an attorney is to advise clients of their options and assist them through the legal process, rather than to "coach" them. Some people may think that it is less expensive if they represent themselves. But, please remember that no matter what, you will "pay" for the work that needs to be done in order to go through the process successfully. If you are not willing to pay an experienced attorney or put in the necessary time and effort to do it on your own successfully, you will "pay" by dealing with endless processing delays or even the denial of you case due to your inexperience and lack of professional legal representation. Our goal is to advise and guide our clients through the intricate legal maze, particularly with the ever-changing U.S. immigration law.

David Sheen

Prior to starting my practice, I worked for other boutique law firms that focused on immigration law.

I have been gaining experienced in immigration law since law school, where I worked on a pro bono basis with nonprofits. I have had a lot of experience representing clients with immigration needs. I also have great mentors, including judges, professors, and other lawyers. Many of them have remained friends of mine.

I'm bilingual; I am fluent in both Chinese and English. I'm also very experienced, detail oriented and good at what I do.

I am very easy going and very attentive to my clients' situations.

Personal interests:

I enjoy traveling, drawing and meeting new friends. I'm also a beginning golfer.
