Firm Philosophy:

We at Genesis adhere to the firm’s three-pronged approach to legal representation. That is, each of us must 1) have exceptional legal qualifications, 2) utilize cost-reducing techniques, and 3) insist on honesty from clients and ourselves.

With respect to the first prong, our firm only hires attorneys with exemplary legal credentials. That means our younger attorneys must have extraordinary academic records, and the more seasoned of us must enjoy notable industry-related achievement.  To learn more about the backgrounds of our lawyers, click here.

Regarding the second prong, cost-saving technologies allow us to charge clients less than other King County firms–typically much less.  Proof is in the numbers. Our hourly rates are often half that of the competition.  To learn more about our cost-saving techniques, click here.

Third, we commit ourselves to absolute honesty and integrity.  From our firm’s perspective, truthfulness has become the most important factor in sustained legal success. Truthfulness generates trust, and trust leads to successful working relationships with clients, opposing parties, and jurists alike.  To learn more about the ways honesty can positively affect your legal case, click here.

These three prongs make our firm stand out from the rest; they embody our sincere devotion to improving the practice of law for the benefit of all. Our goal is to constructively impact our clients and society. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about how our principled-approach can make a difference in and through your case. As we like to say at Genesis, “we’re a better firm for a better world.”

Overview of Our Seattle Immigration Lawyers’ Practices:

The immigration law practice at Genesis Law Firm, PLLC is equipped to handle all types of immigration-related cases, including naturalization and citizenship matters. We handle lawful permanent residency (green cards), temporary work visas, K-1 fiance(e) visas, investment visas, removal defense, intercountry adoptions, appeals (Board of Immigration Appeals, Federal District Courts, Federal Circuit Courts of Appeals, and the United States Supreme Court). Our immigration lawyers are available for in-person and telephone consultations. One or more Chinese-speaking immigration attorneys is available upon request.

Family-Based Immigration. There are several ways the U.S. government allows individuals to immigrate to the United States through family. Depending on the familial relationship to a U.S. citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident, one may be able to obtain his or her own Lawful Permanent Residency to the U.S. Sometimes this is straightforward; sometimes it is complicated. No matter the complexity of the situation, our immigration lawyers have likely encountered it before and can offer help.

Employment-Based Immigration. Never before has the United States had as many highly-skilled and talented workers as it has now. U.S.-based businesses continue to recruit and hire foreign talent for growing industries such as technology, science, medicine, and the arts. Genesis Law Firm’s immigration lawyers have experience in procuring immigrant visas for those highly-skilled and outstanding workers. If your business is seeking to recruit an outstanding foreign worker, our law firm can provide guidance and the legal expertise to make it happen.

U.S. Citizenship and Naturalization. Becoming a U.S. citizen is the dream of many, many people around the world. U.S. citizenship carries with it a sense of immense pride and brings stability that cannot be found elsewhere. Our immigration lawyers handle all matters surrounding U.S. citizenship and naturalization. This includes simple naturalization matters for existing Lawful Permanent Residents, Consular Reports of Birth Abroad for U.S. citizens who give birth abroad, acquisition of U.S. citizenship through a family member, and more.

Immigration Court. The greatest fear of many who wish to call the United States home is ending up in removal proceedings in immigration court. Being removed from the U.S. can have devastating consequences to one’s future immigration status. There is relief available for some individuals in removal proceedings. Asylum, withholding of removal, and cancellation of removal are just three examples. The immigration lawyers at Genesis Law Firm have experience with immigration court matters and can prepare you with a defense in immigration court.

Overview of Our Chinese-Speaking Divorce & Family Law Attorneys’ Seattle Practices:

Family law is our law firm’s largest practice group, yet many potential clients remain unsure what types of cases this group accepts. Family law is essentially a euphemism for divorce and divorce-like matters. Common examples this practice group’s cases include child custody matters between non-married parents (“parentage actions”), non-parental custody (“third-party custody actions”, “dependency actions”, and “de facto parent actions”), dissolutions of long-term committed intimate relationships (“marital-like relationships”), and related modification proceedings (custody and child support modifications and adjustments). In addition, some family law attorneys assist with protection orders (“anti-harassment orders” and “domestic violence orders”) and custody-related matters that bear no similarity to divorces, such as adoptions.

Overview of Our Other Seattle-Area Practice Groups:

Our Seattle office is an extension of our Everett headquarters. This allows our attorneys to meet clients at either location, effectively extending the Seattle office’s coverage to most types of legal matters, including real estate law, estate planning, and general civil litigation.
