“Ms Meng diligently prepared my wife’s response to a RFE from a USCIS field office. Citing news reports, articles, existing laws and previous cases, she explained from multiple perspective why wife’s case should have been approved. Thanks to her work the case was approved 3 week after the response was sent to the field office. My entire family owe a debt of gratitude to her.”
