Minami Tamaki LLP’s Immigration and Nationality Law practice is now nationally ranked on the new 2020 U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” list, which was just released today.
The firm’s immigration practice received a National Tier 3 ranking for the first time, and a Metro Tier 1 ranking for the fifth consecutive year.
U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” recognized the firm’s personal injury practice as Metro Tier 1 for the sixth consecutive year.
The rankings are based on a rigorous evaluation process that includes the collection of client and lawyer evaluations, peer review from leading attorneys in their field, and review of additional information provided by law firms as part of the formal submission process.
To be eligible for a U.S. News/Best Lawyers “Best Law Firms” ranking, a law firm must have at least one lawyer who is included in Best Lawyers in that particular practice area and metro.
Earlier this year, The Best Lawyers in America recognized Partners Minette Kwok, B. Mark Fong, Olivia Serene Lee, Suhi Koizumi, and Senior Counsel Dale Minami, which qualified the firm to be considered for the Best Law Firms list.
The Immigration and Nationality Law Practice Group of Minami Tamaki LLP offers expertise in a broad array of immigration services, routinely assisting employers and employees in obtaining temporary and permanent employment-based visas. The firm’s immigration attorneys also help individual clients to secure family-based immigration status through marriage or other qualifying family relationships.
Partner Minette A. Kwok leads the firm’s immigration practice group, which includes Partner Olivia Serene Lee, Partner Suhi Koizumi, Senior Associate La Verne A. Ramsay, Senior Associate Angela C. Mapa, and Associates Dian Sohn and Judy Hinh Wong.
The attorneys in Minami Tamaki’s Personal Injury Practice Group fight for the rights of people who are injured or have suffered the loss of loved ones due to the carelessness of others. A team approach brings all of the resources of the practice group to cases. This has allowed the firm to recover multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts for their clients.
Senior Counsel Dale Minami founded the firm’s personal injury practice, which is led by Partner B. Mark Fong and includes Associate Seema Bhatt.
