"We have used The Law Offices of James A. Bach for a number of years and have found Mr. Bach's service to be outstanding. He is able to work the H-1 process faster than any immigration attorney that I have seen. We have had a number of candidates choose to use their own attorney, and always the process takes longer. When we have even a day delay in getting someone hired into consulting, it costs us billable work.

. . . Our current immigration process is one of the few things that is truly outstanding. In particular with the consulting market in the Bay Area, I need to hire people with H-1 visas, and who will require green card processing. My business depends on it."*

horizontal rule

When I saw my green card in the mailbox today I was so happy and relieved. I am truly grateful for all your efforts made through the whole process, and I am very satisfied with your service. You are responsive, effective and communicative in both my H1B application and green card application, and of course very professional. I am glad my company chose you as immigration lawyer and I will definitely recommend your service to my friends.*

horizontal rule

[Mr. Bach] is our company lawyer and he has represented my case for Green Card for EB-2. He is a wonderful lawyer and I would strongly recommend him to anyone for immigration service.* [Sept. 2010]

horizontal rule

I would like to say a big thanks to you for helping me achieve this.  All my friends are envious at the speed and efficiency we achieved this which say a great deal about your work.*  [May 2013]

horizontal rule

[We] wanted to thank you . . . for guiding us through this process and for the professional way you handled our case, from when we first walked into your office to the green card interview a bit over a week ago. [A] special "Thank You" for your patience with all our queries and for always being helpful and friendly; we both very much appreciate it!* [January 2014]

horizontal rule


I write this email to thank you . . . for the great service and support you have provided through out my application processing. I will certainly refer my friends* [February 2014]

horizontal rule

I originally hired James to help me with my J-1 waiver case, which was recently approved. Our interaction later expanded into rather comprehensive immigration consultation involving O-1, EB1-OR, H1b etc, such are the options available (and made aware by James) to me. . . . James is an extraordinary immigration attorney. Aside from the wealth of knowledge you would expect from a seasoned top lawyer like him, [his] service also really stands out in a number of other ways. In James, you know you have someone with the utmost integrity and professionalism. In our first meeting, I already knew I found someone I can trust completely. James always has his clients interest at heart and is very reasonable with his fees - He is definitely not one of those attorneys who are just after money. James also provides a lot of encouragement to his clients. Immigration matters are often beyond your control which can make even the most confident person nervous. I have come out of meetings with James with a new found sense of belief and hope.*  [November 2012]

"On appeal, counsel [James Bach] submits a brief dated February 11, 2011 in which he disputes the basis for denial.  Counsel asserts that the beneficiary's proposed employment falls within the statutory definition of executive capacity pursuant to section 101(a)(44)(B) of the Act.  Counsel focuses on the beneficiary's senior placement within the petitioner's organizational hierarchy and her authority to direct the management of a major component of the business, establish its goals and policies, and exercise wide discretion in managing the company.  Upon review, counsel's assertions are persuasive."* [The Administrative Appeals Office of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, overturning a denial by the California Service Center of an I-140 immigrant visa petition, March 2012]

"I've worked with many immigration attorneys for my various H-1 visas and green card, and I can honestly say without a doubt that Jim Bach is one of the best, most highly experienced, trustworthy and knowledgeable immigration attorneys in the US.  He did my first H-1 visa in 1995, and also my green card, and even came with me for my green card interview.  He allayed all of my tensions and fears due to his in depth knowledge of the rules as well as his excellent disposition and empathic nature.  He also has excellent and highly knowledgeable staff working in his office - the combination of everything makes for a very seamless, smooth and comfortable immigration process - if you need an immigration attorney, there is none other than Jim Bach that I would recommend - I've known him for 17 years now, and he is THE BEST of THE BEST!!!"*  [Jan. 2011]

horizontal rule

"Jim Bach has helped me with a number of immigration related issues around H1B visas and the like. He and his staff have always been helpful, knowledgeable, and detail oriented, making my role in the whole process minimal (which is a great help). Highly recommended."*

"I have been a practicing California attorney for 19 years and we needed immigration counsel to assist us in applying for my stepdaughter's green card. In my civil practice I have dealt with hundreds of attorneys in various capacities, adversaries and collaborators, litigants, administrative and transactional counsel. I am pleased to report that Mr. Bach handled our matter competently, professionally and efficiently to a successful conclusion in a few short months (my wife's green card took more than five years). He laid out the process with surprising accuracy in our first meeting, he and his staff kept us up to date at every stage and the results we wanted came ahead of schedule. His fee was reasonable and he was always a genuine pleasure to work with. In all my years of practice, I cannot think of any other attorney or legal issue that was a better experience. I recommend Mr. Bach without reservation."* [November 2010]

horizontal rule

"We are extremely satisfied with the quality of representation and care that you gave our case.  Through the process you proceeded full speed ahead without delay, always kept us informed of every development, and answered our emails very quickly.  We will always be grateful for all this and will not hesitate to refer your services to friends."*  [Feb. 2009]

horizontal rule

"Now that we have successfully come to the end of the legal journey I want to thank you for pulling it off.  I remember that day when I was in your office to hear you say I was not only deportable but also inadmissible.  I can't describe the shock of hearing how my application had changed from routine to serious. . . .

Well, you had to use some recent decisions of the 9th Circuit Court that involved the 14th Amendment along with an expungement, but as you said toward the end, it will work out, and it did.  So again, thanks for the good work . . . you really do hold the wellbeing of people in your hands.  And Shawn was always there and took care of the details perfectly. . . . I can just imagine some of the stories of cases you've handled; it's a bit of an honor to have mine added. . . .

By the way, I don't remember if I told you how I got your name.  It came through many referrals I received after a lawyer I had retained on another matter, and who knew I was going to apply, recommended that I get expert help.  He put out a request for recommendations and within a day I must have had a couple dozen come across the computer screen.  Your name kept coming up.  The common thread among many of these names was yours - and the rest is history."*  [Oct. 2010]

horizontal rule

"Jim has been super!  He is very knowledgeable in his field and has worked miracles with two difficult situations that we have had.  He did the initial TN visas for our Canadians and it was no sweat.  I highly recommend him."*

horizontal rule

"I want to thank you for everything you've done for me and my son! I can't even describe how happy and relieved I am now. I wish you all the best  in business and family and will always refer you to other people in need."* [Jan. 2011]

horizontal rule

"James Bach has been an awesome lawyer – he keeps on top of all paperwork and has been prompt and excellent with the handling of my immigration work. I am certain that I would be about a year behind my immigration work if it had not been for him."*

horizontal rule

horizontal rule

"I believe [Mr. Bach has] done ‘magic’ . . . with [his] level of patience, commitment, and experience in immigration issues."*

The comment from the consular official was: 'The files were in perfect order.'

I take this opportunity to thank you . . . for the excellent services rendered during the period of my association with you, starting from the original application of H-1, subsequent renewal, and my green card processing as well. I cannot recollect a single occasion where I ever felt a reason for complaint. Service was courteous, prompt and all my emails were replied to by you without any delay.  I commend all of you for doing such a good job that I received no RFE at all!!!!!!!  Thanks once again.  I will certainly recommend your services to my friends and acquaintances."*

I just wanted to take the time today to reflect on the application process through the law offices of James A. Bach and provide you with some feedback as to my experience.

First off let me say that I have had a very pleasant and professional experience dealing with [... Mr. Bach and his] staff of very highly competent people.

The process of applying for a US permanent residency is a long one and filled with all sorts of twists and turns along the way.   . . . I have always been provided very accurate and reliable information from Mr. Bach. I can recall several times when I have called, and [he has] personally taken the time to explain or clarify situations very patiently and knowledgeably. To me [Mr. Bach and his staff] have been very articulate, systematic, patient and understanding with me along the way.

Needless to say, not only am I a permanent resident [but] also a very happy customer.  I wanted to write today to let you know that they have been providing an exceptional service to aspiring immigrants like me. I think that Employees like me are very fortunate to have the benefit of their services . . ."*

I just recently filed for my adjustment of status and once again, J. Bach was my lawyer. He explained me all of the steps giving me accurate information and what scenarios could happen. He was on point, always ahead of the game to update me on my situation and replied promptly to my email or phone call. I highly recommend him, you can find cheaper attorney but it's so not worth taking the risk."*  [August 2010]

"I had many experiences with immigration lawyers in the past. And I have to tell that James A. Bach was the best lawyer I had the chance to work with. I am french, so you can understand that for a foreigner it is very important to be able to trust a lawyer who will represent you. I had an answer for all my worries and concern, and our business was a success. Now he is the lawyer of my mother and my brother. And if I had to recommend him, I won't hesitate a minute."* [September 2010]

horizontal rule

"I used to have another lawyer, however, her response was always very slow and irresponsible. I needed to go back to my home country at that time because of my family emergency and didn't know what I should do since an immigration issue is a big problem for foreigners. Then, one of my friends introduced me to Mr. Bach.

His explanation is easy to understand and whenever I have a question, he mailed me the answer instantly and I've never had worried. Although my case is especially difficult, he always finds the way.

I trust him 100%. Also, my visa sponsor is very impressed with his ability. I have no complain about him. If any of my friends has an immigration problem, I definitely would like to recommend him. He is a wonderful lawyer. I feel I am very lucky to meet him."
