Our firm’s foremost goals are to provide our clients with the best possible legal representation in our fields of expertise and to provide a stimulating and challenging professional life for our lawyers and staff.
Dedication to Clients for over 50 Years
For nearly half a century, Gee & Zhang (formerly Harry Gee & Associates) has been at the forefront of the immigration field in Houston. Harry Gee built his firm on the foundation of Personal Service, Strong Legal Knowledge and Creative Solutions. The firm upholds these principles today by educating our clients about the realities and intricacies of immigration law. Our client list includes Fortune 100 companies from the Energy and Medical Industries, Universities, Non-Profits, as well as Foreign Nationals. Our clients utilize our innovative immigration strategies to achieve their immigration objectives.
Gee & Zhang is proud of the fact that we expend time in becoming intimately familiar with the facts of a case so that we can present the maximum number of options for our client to consider in resolving the immigration issues. We seek to anticipate for needs of the family during the representation.
Strong Legal Knowledge
Maintaining comprehensive knowledge about immigration laws and regulations, administrative decisions and guidance is a core objective of the attorneys in our firm. We exceed the mandatory minimum continuing legal education studies requirements and have internal conferences on a regular basis to discuss recent developments in law and procedures.
When a corporate CEO was found by the legacy Immigration Service not to qualify for the nonimmigrant intercompany executive transferee because the foreign company he led was sold from the parent, Gee & Zhang was able to persuade the government he qualified under a professional classification permitting him to work in the U.S. for three years. While we do not guarantee success on an immigration case, one alien retained our services even when we estimated only a 15% chance of success and we succeeded!
Our immigration practice is well suited for providing legal counseling and services in virtually every area of immigration and immigration-related law. We are especially well suited for counseling domestic and foreign companies with regard to visas for employment and temporary and permanent residence in the United States.
