Senior Paralegal/Manager


I found myself in need of hiring an immigration lawyer to help assess my case. Good thing I found Vi. She is very professional and at the same time I got a personal service. She was calm, patient and extremely attentive and responsive all the time. My wife and I bombarded her with questions and she always remained professional and took great care to ensure that my queries were answered. Whether it was through a quick email or a phone call, Vi was always available and prompt whenever I needed her. She was there to answer all my legal questions, or just to assure me that things were in order. And the other thing that we really appreciated was her payment plan, especially in this economy that was definitely a big help. She took care of everything and made all the process fairly easy and painless. I got my documents in less time that I had expected, less than 4 months. I really recommend her as an Immigration attorney.

I am very happy with the service I received from Vi Nanthaveth's Law Firm. She helped my wife and I with an immigration case. She is very responsive.  I never had to wait long to get any questions regarding our case answered, whether via email or phone. She is very knowledgeable and friendly. My wife and I never really worried about our case because we knew it was in good hands. The preparation for our case was very professional and very complete. Anything that could come up that might delay our case was already taken care of in our file. I will definitely be recommending Vi's Law Firm to anyone that might have questions regarding immigration cases.

— Abe C. (Austin, TX)

I am currently working on an immigration case, and contacting Vi Nanthaveth was a good move! Whether or not she can help you with your case, I can guarantee that she will give her maximum effort to try and help you. Unlike other lawyers I have talked to, she actually has a "soul". She is not cold hearted or robotic. I can tell that she’s not one of those types who are just "in it for the money". She kept me posted the whole time and really displayed a genuine concern for me and my wife. If you want a caring "human" to try and help you, instead of a mechanical, power hungry, corporate "shark"....then you should pick Vi Nanthaveth.
—Randy S. (Nashville, TN)

Vi is one fantastic attorney. Always thorough and knowledgeable in immigration law. I have worked with her for many years and trust her completely. I highly recommend her for any immigration challenge you may have. I wish her continued success for many years to come.
