Cynthia helps employers across diverse industries – from Fortune 500 companies and start-up entrepreneurs to small local restaurants – to obtain visas and green cards for their foreign employees. She also has hands-on experience in family-based immigration. Partnering with clients, Cynthia advises clients on all aspects of processing immigrant and nonimmigrant visas and has broad experience in labor certifications and permanent residency processes. 

Cynthia had studied in the United States as an international student and immigrated to the United States from Taiwan.
