Client-Focused Immigration Solutions in Silicon Valley and the Bay Area

The path to citizenship in the United States is one that can be very confusing and may take several years to complete. As a general rule, the process typically begins by obtaining legal entry into the country with a visa for family or work purposes. From there, an individual may wish to become established as a lawful permanent resident and, finally, as a naturalized U.S. citizen. A number of factors, including your residence in the country, the ability to read, write, and speak English, and any criminal history may affect your eligibility for citizenship. Our attorneys have the knowledge and skill to help you with all of the required applications and any other formal proceedings.

Why is Citizenship Important?

If you are currently a legal permanent resident of the United States, there are many advantages to obtaining full U.S. citizenship through the naturalization process. Once you become a U.S. citizen, you:

  • Have the right to vote in local, state, and federal elections, giving you a voice in the democratic process;
  • Cannot be deported or removed, even if you are arrested or convicted of a crime;
  • Can file requests for family members to join you in the United States;
  • Gain the ability to travel abroad with the protection of the U.S. government; and
  • Become eligible for certain government jobs.

It is important to understand that not all permanent residents will qualify for the process of naturalization. In addition to the basic requirements such as residency and possessing “good moral character,” there are many other considerations that immigration authorities will take into account when processing your application. At SAC Attorneys LLP, we understand the immigration process, and we are equipped to help you present the best possible case.

Client Reviews
Mr. Cai Is a Diligent Attorney. My sister and I were defendants in a civil litigation case. We hired James Cai and his law firm, SAC Attorneys LLP. Mr. Cai is a diligent attorney and responded to our questions in a timely fashion. He and his staff were very helpful in keeping us informed of the proceedings of the case and in explaining each step. Mr. Cai is also very conscientious of fees and costs, and avoided unnecessary charges. The results of the Summary Adjudication sided with us. The Court Trial resulted in the “Final Statement of Decision” and “Judgment after Court Trial” overwhelmingly siding with us. Cynthia F.
I Am Truly Impressed. After spending a significant amount of time, money and efforts with my previous counsel at a larger law firm without getting meaningful results, I transferred my employment matter to SAC Attorneys LLP. The attorneys there were able to understand the complex situations of my case and put together an aggressive litigation strategy. We were able to file a compelling complaint within a week and forced the opposing party, which was represented by one of the largest law firms in California, to make a substantial settlement offer shortly thereafter. I am truly impressed by the no nonsense and results oriented approach by SAC Attorneys LLP attorneys. A job well done! X. Gao
They Took Time to Understand Our Technology. I am the founder of a bioinformatics start-up in the Silicon Valley and chose SAC Attorneys LLP as our corporate counsels. Their attorneys have great experience with high tech start-ups and were able to offer a highly competitive service plan while not sacrificing a bit of their quality of services. They took time to understand our technology and provided value added services by introducing investors and job candidates to us. We regard our attorneys at SAC Attorneys LLP not only as our legal advisors but also our venture partners. Dr. Pete S.
