If you need a lawyer you can trust and that will take care of even the hardest case you need Elliot. Don”t even think about doing it yourself. Trust me. It will set you back for months or be denied. He was with us every step of the way. he not only told us how much up front but started my sons process too. It was never a surprise about the fees. And he was way more then fair. He made it seem like we matter. I consider him more then a lawyer and more of a friend. Don”t waste your time with anyone else. I have heard horror story’s. I’m so glad we found him.BTW 5 years latter he still guides us when we have questions.

Extremely professional and honest service, they help us a few times in the past!
~Alejandro Bautista, February 2019
Thank you Elliott for your help!!! You are my go-to attorney! Truly, you were so kind, professional and generous with the information you gave me that I needed to help my Cambodian friend apply for a nonimmigrant Visa.
I am a surgical nurse and I value a professional who is compassionate and an expert in their field…willing to be generous with their time. You put me at ease and I didn’t feel rushed or pressured. The information you gave me was spot-on to make this application successful.
I am sincerely grateful!
~Suzanne Haveman, February 2019
I am writing this review on behalf of my mother who is not very tech savvy. My mother was first referred to Mr. Yi, by a friend of her’s in 2011-2012 after an arrest which entered her into proceeding for deportation by ICE. Once out on bail, my mother and I met with Mr. Yi for the very first time and based on our first impression, we decided to hire him for cancellation from deportation.
Mr. Yi showed curtesy and companionship to two complete strangers. He was kind, understanding, but even more importantly, he listened to what we had to say. Mr. Yi took the time to thoroughly examine my mother’s case, ask detailed and intricate questions, and put together what he believed was the best options for my mother. He never made any assumptions or promises to grant my mother cancellation from deportation, but what he did state and prove was knowledge in law, facts, evidence, and intelligence, which we felt is far more important then hopes and promises. From the very beginning and throughout the process, we felt Mr Yi’s true integrity and dedication in his work. Though we knew the outcome may or may not be in our favor, we felt welcomed and very positive that someone like Mr Yi, would be on my mother’s side to help and try their best.
Mr. Yi’s communication was by far superior throughout the lengthy process. Mr. Yi never lost interest or motivation in my mother’s case. Every time we met with Mr. Yi, we were always treated with the same professionalism as if we were in our first meeting. His communication was always clear and to the pace where we could comprehend every detail. We never felt rushed to listen and go. Our questions were always answered in detail and example. Mr. Yi always went the extra mile to reach out to my mother for document signing or updates. Even when my mother was not available via telephone, Mr. Yi would reach out to me so I could pass on the message and promptly schedule a meeting to meet deadline dates.
Not everyones immigration case is the same, nor will everyone’s case have positive outcomes, unfortunately, but Mr. Yi is an attorney at law who truly dedicates his expertise to try and achieve positive outcomes for his clients. Mr. Yi is an honest man with high morals, and it very well shows. Thank you Again Mr. Yi! We are forever great full. May you receive many blessings.

Lawyer Elliot was super nice, professional and great at what he does.
~Nghi Luu, February 2019
Elliot is the best decision me and my husband have ever made. Not only is he attentive and a good listener but also pleasant to work with. We feel in the loop at all time; his communication is A++. He did a great job of considering all sides and is strategic in his interactions with involved parties. I have to apply for my citizenship and will definitely ask him to do it for me. Highly recommended!!
~Millie E.J. Keum, February 2019
Thank you so much for your services and all the legal advice you have given to me. I didn’t know how to file a personal injury claim against the city of Portland that was responsible for the car accident I got involved in 2017. You took care of all the paperwork for me dealing with the city and my car insurance company professionally.
Elliott, you represented me well and understood my pains and trauma caused by the accident. Also I really appreciate that you patiently waited for me until I finished all necessary medical treatments. I definitely will recommend you to friends and family members who look for a good attorney.
~Mijung U., February 2019

Absolutely amazing lawyer. First time working with Eliott, he was very thorough, descriptive, easy to understand and very friendly. He responds to email/phone/text frequently. I have never waited more than a couple hours before he got back to me. I would recommend anybody for Eliott as I plan on doing further business with him in the near future for any other necessary things. Thanks again Eliott for the great work you have provided for our family.
~Min Ku, July 2018
Elliot supported my husband and I every step of the way. He was very communicative, honest, and encouraging. We couldn’t have asked for better representation and highly recommend him!
~Natalie Martinez, July 2018
Elliot was great. He was able to answer most of the questions we had about getting married and made the process of applying much smoother. He’s also really good at email. I remember a couple times sending an email to him at about 11:00 pm and getting a reply within half an hour.
~Chase Denecke, June 2018
Very helpful and very professional I have zero complaints and he is very reliable. Had very good experience, I would recommend his services.

I would like to thank the his professionalism and attention. My case has been approved in one year which is a how good Elliot at immigration cases. He has constantly helped me throughout my process. He is extremely hard working, very much professional, accurate,and knowledgeable. He had all the answer and perfect solutions to all my questions . Without his efforts and hard work for my case I would have never been in U.S with my Green card.
~Aeja, May 2018
Elliot was amazing! He is very open and honest about your case and walks you through every possible scenario and outcome. He had constant communication with us throughout the entire process and was never too busy to take a call or hear your concerns. Elliot made the entire immigration process as stress free and easy as possible. He kept us on track with what we needed and was extremely organized with our case. I would not go to anyone else! Take the time to stop by and have an initial consultation, you will not regret it!
~Ashley V., May 2018
Elliot has seamlessly guided my family and I through some of our hardest times for the past five years with his professionalism and expertise in different fields of law. After many years of dealing with some of the worst attorneys in Oregon (lot of them will just take your money and won’t even answer your emails for weeks), we are so grateful to finally have found Mr. Yi to represent us in these crucial moments.
~Sil W., May 2018
Elliot is dependable, courteous, and professional. He was a great adviser to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the likelihood of being reunited seemed impossible. Not only was Elliot able to help me get approved for a re-entry permit, his calm and empathetic demeanor gave me much needed support as I went through the process. Elliot did a great job keeping me updated and communicating with me every step of the way.
~Terri W., April 2018

Incredibly helpful! I don’t know how we would have gone through the immigration process without him. He was incredibly professional through the whole process and the rate was very reasonable for the help that he provided.
~Emil S., November 2017
Elliot is a wonderful person. I have worked with several attorneys throughout the years, Elliot is by far the most reliable, loyal, “on the case” with your best interest in mind. Very cordial, thorough, knowledgable, hears you and remembers all details provided. I highly recommend Elliot’s services, he exceeds one’s expectations and makes the process so much easier.
~Gabriela, October 4, 2017
Best Immigration Lawyer
I contacted Elliot Yi from this website. A few years ago, then again last year for my immigration case. Elliot is more than knowledgable and takes his work seriously. He would always, always reply to my emails very quickly (within 24 hours if not sooner AND I had a lot of questions as you know when going through the immigration process).
I would recommend, him to anyone who’s going through immigration and need some assistance on any level of the process. He held my hand from the beginning to the end and I could not be any more satisfied.
If you are looking for an immigration lawyer and you don’t have a lot of money at your disposal then call him. He is, simply put the very best lawyer I’ve ever met.
Thank you Elliot!
~anonymous, January 20, 2017
Navigating US immigration law is a daunting process, but Elliot made the process incredibly smooth.
We first met with Elliot in late January of 2016. With a major complication, my wife who is from China, and I filed the necessary applications with the expert help of Elliot on April 30th. We were called in by USCIS on July 21st and a “green card” was approved that day. This never would have happened without the expertise of Elliot. He is an immigration superstar!
~James, July 30, 2016
Thank Very Much for your amazing Help!
Very knowledgeable about the immigration process for my wife from my country Iran and I really appreciate for your hard working and your help to us to joint together here in the US. again.
~Farhad, July 28, 2016
Glad and grateful!
Very knowledgeable about the immigration process relating to the green card by marriage. Personable, friendly, thoughtful and good humored in our interactions. Took the time to meet with us when requested. Was meticulous in all the paperwork regarding our case. We will definitely be reaching out to him as necessary in the future. We wholeheartedly recommend him, based on our experience. Thank you, Elliot!
~MC, June 5, 2016
Fast, Efficient, and Insightful
Mr. Yi has helped me and my family in purchasing property. He was straightforward and I learned a lot from the plethora of knowledge he has in field.
Not only did the sale go through smoothly, but Mr. Yi went over everything we were concerned about and then some that we did not know about.
We wont’ have to spend time calling or going over these kind of reviews since Mr. Yi is someone we can trust and know that he is thorough and a subject matter expert.
~Andy, April 22, 2016

~Don, October 20, 2015
Great experience working with Elliot Yi
We don’t usually write reviews of this nature, but after working with Elliot, we feel compelled to let folks know what a pleasure it was to work with him. Elliot was amazingly knowledgeable, helpful, and generous. He went above and beyond what we would consider normal client service, going out of his way especially when we had a death in the family. He was professional throughout, offered great advice and knowledge to help us meet our goals. Thanks again for all your help, Elliot.
~Yuwadee, September 21, 2015
Very satisfied with his work on immigration status! Great lawyer, he is very flexible with appointments. What we really liked about Elliot is that he’s there with you step by step, guiding you threw the prosses.
I would highly recommend his service 100%.
Estamos muy satifecho con el trabajo de este abogado de inmigracion. Es muy flexible con las citas. Lo que nos gusto mas de su servicio es que el nos fue guiando paso a paso en el proseso. Cual quiere pregunta o duda el estava ahi para ayudar nos. Yo lo recomendaria a Elliot al 100%.
~Elizabeth, September 15, 2015
Elliot helped me with I 131 ( for re entry to the U.S.) before I had to leave the country for humanitarian purpose. He did a great job communicating with me, answered all my questions, paid attention to details, and he did everything to help me get approved for I 131. To keep it short, my case was complicated and unusual but Elliot did a lot of research on his own and gave me some great advice. I’d recommend Elliot to anyone that’s looking for a dependable, considerate attorney that will get the job done!
~Terri, August 5, 2015
My wife and I talked with several different Lawyers about our immigration requirements and problems. Elliot was by far the best choice for us, he was completely professional, always contactable (which is really important), very quick and meticulous in the processing of your case and very competitive in price. He even set up a payment plan for us to pay off over a period of time. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and my wife and I would unreservedly recommend this man to represent your legal requirements.
~Steve and Heather, October 13, 2014
Highly recommend Elliot Yi as an Immigration Attorney
My fiancee and I hired Elliot Yi to represent us in the legal matter in connection with a Fiancee Visa application 14 months ago. Today we received an email stating the released document relating to our Visa application was being sent via the courier to my fiancee in his country. He will leave in eight weeks to join me in the U.S. We will have a December wedding.
Our conversations have been via phone, emails and postal mail, and yet it seems we have met personally, as Elliot is so personable and yet very professional.
He has an extremely reasonable flat rate fee and works with us at any time we have questions and responds in an exceptional and unique manner. I have received emails answering my questions late at night and on weekends. I love that he personally answers each phone call I have made with a friendly “Hello Maya”.
Elliot’s sensitivity to our complex situation was compassionate, kind and thoughtful.
His instructions were thorough and meticulous along with his patience, which surpassed my expectations and calmed my many frustrations as I was filling out the detailed forms that had to be completed, copied, signed, mailed and sometimes, seemingly, repeated.
We cannot recommend Elliot Yi highly enough as an Immigration Attorney. He knows what he is doing and always gave us the assurance during these many months that we could get through the “hoops” of the tedious but necessary forms.
We are looking forward to working with Elliot through our many months ahead to complete my fiancee’s immigration process.
~Maya, October 8, 2014
The Best Lawyer
I think he is the best lawyer because he spent a lot of time to prepare visa documents for me.

~Claudia, October 6, 2014
I ENDORSE THIS LAWYER, mr Elliot is very good at his job, he understands his clients,he is trust worthy, and is very knowledgeable with immigration laws at its maximum. in the time I was working with mr Elliot he would always give precise feedback to all my concerns, also always kept me updated. in other words he knows what he’s doing! I highly recommended mr Yi.
~ANTONY, June 19, 2014
My situation was just more than a normal immigration case, quite a few immigration attorneys had turned me down, because of its complexity, others demanded 10 figure $$! When I went to Elliot, he didn’t waste no time, was able to ask me the right questions, I provided all the answers, before I knew it attorney Yi was on the case! His attorney fees are very reasonable, compared to what I was being quoted out there! Elliot is no by any means an average immigration attorney, he is a pure “judicial scholar” was able to quickly learn from my unique case where others (attorneys ) had failed to help me! We won the case convincingly! I highly recommend attorney Elliot Yi.
~David, May 14, 2014
We loved working with Elliot
Elliot is just so professional, he is extremely detailed oriented, he handled all of our documents with surgical care, I just can’t tell you enough how easy he made things for us. We are a bi-national gay couple, we hired Elliot to help apply for an adjustment of status. He was by our side through every step, made sure we understood everything. If you are looking for an immigration lawyer, look no further, you just found a GREAT one.
~Pablo, May 10, 2014
The BEST Lawyer
The BEST lawyer in Portland. I was on F-1 student visa and I worked with Mr. Elliot on filing for my permanent residency through marriage. The whole process was very quick and fast because of his professional and organized work with filing my papers. There was no problem at all. He’s a great lawyer and very hard working. Through the whole process he always kept me updated it with my case. I highly recommend this lawyer to work with. He’s overall process is very excellent.
~Hesham, May 8, 2014
K-1 VISA Vietnam to Oregon
Elliot is prompt, professional, courteous and informed. An immigration attorney wasn’t required for our case, but I’m very thankful for the resources, security and peace of mind he offered throughout our process at an honest flat fee.
~Anthony, February 21, 2014
A lawyer from heaven
I am a refugee from Syria. I came to the US without money and connections. I had many immigration questions that no lawyer wanted to answer them without me having to schedule an appointment for a fee or promise to hire him/her. I made tens of calls to immigration lawyers in the Portland area trying to get information and answers, and all of them didn’t want to talk about it over the phone. Except one, and that is attorney Elliot Yi. He didn’t just answer all my questions no matter how many times I called him, he even took my case free of charge. He represented me and helped me win my case all the way until I got my green card. During the process I didn’t have to call him for updates, because he kept in constant touch with me assuring me that he is on top of everything and the fact that he is not getting paid for maybe one of the toughest immigration case, doesn’t mean he is not going to give it his full attention and the best of his effort. I have never met any other lawyer in my life who is so professional, knowledgeable, honest and responsible as much as attorney Elliot Yi.
~Julian, January 27, 2014
Best attorney we have ever worked with.
Elliot Yi, had help my husband get his 10 years green card, about 3 month after we visited his office and completed the application under Elliot’s consultation and advice. Elliott is very knowledgeable, an expertise at what he does. He’s also very reassurance and attentive to our’s concerns, which can be rare with attorney now a day. are very grateful to Elliott Yi. You are the best among the best!!! You come highly recommended from us. Thank you very much for all your help Elliot.
~Michelle, January 11, 2014
Attorney Yi handled my case like a pro from beginning to end. He made a plan and we followed it step by step and it worked great. The results were absolutely perfect and I got everything I was looking for. He has a high degree of professionalism. He had a great rapport with all the people we had to deal with and was an excellent representation for me and we got everything I needed even quicker than I had expected. It was very smooth and quick results. His fees were very reasonable and he did a lot of work and I am very grateful for all of his effort. He is very relate-able and easy to get along with in person as fellow music lovers. We had a great common ground and I would highly recommend Attorney Yi to all my friends.
~Dan, December 18, 2013
Elliot is a highly skilled and bright attorney. I would recommend him to anyone with immigration issues.
Based on my experience, he is the best attorney I’ve ever hired. Highly recommend!!
~Leo C., August 16, 2013
Landlord/Tenant related Legal council, done perfectly!
I went to Elliot M.S. Yi based on a recommendation from a friend and was not disappointed. Being a first time landlord, a situation arose to seek legal council with a dispute over a security deposit. I have not had much interaction with lawyers before, but my mind was put at ease very quickly with how informed Elliot was with my situation before he even billed a single hour or had our first meeting. Everything was explained very intelligently, but in understandable terms and I never felt “out of the loop” with the status of the case. communication was excellent throughout our interaction, and no requests I had were met with annoyance or hesitance.
Although Landlord/Tenant law was not a specialty of Elliot’s, I truly believe he went out of his way to make us feel like we were having our case handled as well as anybody well versed in this specialty. The case had a large amount of variables concerning the wording of our lease agreement, as well as specific laws that applied to them, and our tenants rights to the deposit. It was handled amazingly, and I felt very secure in the outcome as well as any ongoing issues with our tenants relating to the deposit until the closure of the case.
He was very flexible with meetings and times, and worked great around my schedule. Even bringing in my children to his office was met with hospitality at all times. I would most definitely recommend Elliot to anybody needing any type of legal council, and would call him again in a second. Thanks again!
~Michael J., June 21, 2013
