Ms. Ahn’s motto is “ happy clients are the best form of marketing.” This sets the firm apart from other firms that just do the job, not caring about the satisfaction or quality of the service provided. A good example of this is in the firm's development of clients in O-1 Extraordinary Ability alien petitions in the performing arts industry, with some very talented and interesting clients. The firm started with one happy client, which resulted in word-of-mouth referrals that flourished into a bit of a niche in this type of visa processing. The firm now has a steady stream of clients that range from hip-hop dancers, to TV production companies from Europe. It is an exciting field of immigration law.
Ms. Ahn received her Juris Doctor from Suffolk University Law School in Boston.
She is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and the Federal Bar Association, and is admitted to practice law before the highest Courts of New York and Massachusetts.
She is fluent in Korean.
