Background

In Japan, Hiromi worked for the U.S. Embassy as well as international companies and moved to the U.S. in 1987. Being an immigrant herself, Hiromi understands well her clients’ circumstances. She tries to put herself in their situation and understands and accommodates their special needs. “What we do here can affect the client’s life. A single piece of paper could significantly impact our client’s future,” she says.
