“Gary and his team were very professional and prompt with their interactions and procedures. He offered ample help with the visa petition process and was always willing to answer any questions and concerns we had. I am very grateful for the effort he put into our case, and at very reasonable fee. I lived in Ishikawa and Kochi while I worked on my case, but I did not feel that the communication were hindered by the distance. Highly recommended for US citizens living in Japan looking for professional help with the immigration process!”

“Gary provided us with exceptional service throughout our immigration process. He was extremely thorough and responsive to all of our questions, concerns, and deadlines with very thoughtful feedback and clear, concise answers that were easy to understand despite the complexities of immigration processing. While our situation changed and we ended up staying, I would absolutely engage Gary’s services again as he provided extremely professional services and ensure our processing would moved along quickly and smoothly.”

“Gary supported us with our daughter's F1 visa. Because our case was not as simple as the typical F1 visa situation, we were nervous and overreacted in some situations. Throughout the process, Gary was patient, kind and understanding. His advice was knowledgeable and direction was very clear.  We are happy that our daughter got her visa! We really appreciate all he has done for us. Thank you!!”

“Gary was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was very knowledgeable, thorough, and, most of all, very kind and considerate in all of our interactions. He gave very clear instructions and guidance at each step, and he always made time to respond to our questions in a timely manner, all of which put my wife and me at ease as we worked through our US immigration case. I would work with him again in a heartbeat, and would strongly recommend him for your US immigration needs.”

“Highly competent and friendly immigration lawyer

Gary has been a fantastic lawyer over the past few years. The service that he provides made the entire U.S. immigrant visa (CR1) process for a two-year "conditional" green card easy to work through. Since we had such a positive experience we asked him to help us with Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. In the end, the USCIS approved our petition without us needing to attend an interview. It was a pleasure working with you!”

“Applying for a spousal visa was a long road due in large part to COVID-19, but Gary was extremely helpful at every step. He gathered all of our needed info, handled all of our filings and fee payments on time, and was responsive to questions.

“Top-Notch U.S. Immigration Attorney!

Through Gary’s knowledge of modern U.S. immigration law, I was able to become a U.S. citizen! The entire process was quick and seamless! Gary tailored a clear plan for me with target dates, goals, and checklists that was easy to follow. I also really like that his law office uses modern software to make sharing documents and information safe and easy and that he maintained clear communication and checked for my understanding throughout the entire process. Gary also prepared me for my interview (and other appointments), and I was able to interview with confidence and even enjoy my experience at the USCIS office. He honestly exceeded my expectations, and I can’t recommend him highly enough!”

I cannot recommend Gary highly enough for help with immigration matters or whatever your needs may be. My wife and I faced some challenges with U.S. immigration developments and travel restrictions so we are glad that we had Gary in our corner. We truly respect Gary’s thoroughness and professionalism in helping us obtain my wife’s immigrant visa. Gary was always quick to respond to our inquiries. When we had difficulties, Gary always patiently and carefully walked us through what needed to be done and went above and beyond what we expected. The immigration process is fraught with small details that need close attention and Gary was always meticulous about making sure everything was covered. I am sincerely grateful for all the help Gary has provided!”

We were overwhelmed at the prospect of the whole immigration process, but Gary helped to guide us at each step of the way – always quick to reply to our questions and to clarify things when we got confused.

“Thanks to Gary and the effort from his team, we were able to glide through the immigration process and obtain a CR1 immigrant visa. It was comforting knowing that Gary was here to draft all of the documents that he did, help keep us organized, and look over our shoulder throughout the entire process. If you are about to embark on a similar process, I would highly recommend contacting this law office and learning about how they can help.”

“We used GOH Foreign Law Office to get a U.S. immigrant visa for my wife when we were in Japan. Gary was prompt with his correspondence with us; as well as courteous, kind, caring, and knowledgeable. We are so grateful to him and his partner for patiently guiding us through the mounds of paperwork and the maze of government requirements! He literally helped us with every step along the path to getting her immigration visa in her passport. I don't know how we would have done this without him. We highly recommend using his services if you are looking for someone to help you with immigration matters.”

“Gary helped my partner obtain a US immigrant visa while we were living in Japan. While the process can be stressful and takes time, we really appreciated having him to help us through it. He was always prompt and thorough when it came to answering emails, and provided us with detailed guidance at every step along the way. He also went out of his way to help us with acquiring necessary documentation (tax return transcripts), which can be difficult when living abroad. We were on somewhat of a tight schedule, and probably would have run into various issues had we decided to do it all ourselves, so we're glad we hired him. His pricing is very reasonable as well, especially considering how much time he puts into everything.”

"5 Stars! We're very blessed to have had Gary as our immigration attorney!


Gary is an outstanding immigration attorney and having Gary represent us in Japan as we applied for a U.S. immigrant visa and green card for my wife through consular processing has been a true blessing. Thanks to Gary’s guidance and diligence, my wife and I are now happily residing in the U.S. together. We appreciate Gary’s patience, thoroughness, and professionalism and him always going the extra mile to represent us.


Due to my wife living in Japan as a Chinese citizen and my contractual position through the JET (Japan Exchange and Teaching) Program, our case was unique; however, this was not an issue as Gary understands the specific challenges people of varying nationalities and backgrounds may face. Gary provided checklists for each step, he performed legal research on the issues in our case, and he addressed our questions promptly so we could understand the process and feel at ease. With Gary’s support, our petition was approved by USCIS without any requests for evidence (RFEs), and our application was expedited from the National Visa Center to the U.S. Embassy in Tokyo. Gary handled all the domestic and international communications with representatives of USCIS and the U.S. State Department. Gary thoroughly prepared my wife for her immigrant visa interview in Tokyo, and he even met with my wife’s Kansai doctor to ensure her medical exam results reached the U.S. Embassy on schedule. With Gary as our representative, we could present a strong case, avoid delays, and reach our objective. He charged a very reasonable fee, and his attention to our case greatly exceeded our expectations.


Though Gary is an exceptional attorney, he is humble and has always treated us with respect. It is obvious that Gary works an immigration attorney because he enjoys making a positive difference in the lives of his clients. We are truly grateful to have had Gary as our guide for this journey.

I have never met a lawyer like Gary who genuinely wants to help people who need help. I think he is a good role model of people who work to help people.

“5 Stars! Gary is nice and friendly.  He tries to help local members of his community to promote multiculturalism and is trusted by residents. I contacted Gary when my older brother was having a hard time understanding what was written on an English contract. My brother and I had almost no experience consulting a lawyer, but I could do so easily, because I knew his personality. Gary examined the contract very carefully and gave my brother thoughtful advice. With his help, my brother could solve his problem.
I recommend Gary, a lawyer who is gentle, sincere and reliable.”

5 Stars! Valuable legal support. Gary Haase represented our nonprofit organization when we had a contract dispute with a vendor. Gary helped us make the best out of a challenging situation by negotiating a settlement that enabled us to avoid litigation. Gary makes himself available for questions and is easy to work with. After Gary handled our vendor issue, we continued to seek Gary’s professional assistance with other matters, including the drafting of service agreements and consent forms.
