Yumi Yamada Karim earned her Bachelor of Arts in American Literature at Tsuru University in Japan. She fulfilled her parents' wish and became a licensed English teacher at a public junior high school in Japan, but somehow the destiny has brought her here in the United States that she considers her own home now. Determined to become a professional in the land of opportunity where she moved, she earned her Juris Doctor Degree at Touro Law Center while working full-time at Corporate Finance Department of a large commercial bank in Manhattan. She initially worked for established solo immigration practitioners where she enjoyed direct responsibility of handling cases and direct contact with clients. Her clients included, but not limited to, small, mid-sized, or large corporations, non-profit organizations, professionals, artists, and students who wish to enter into workforce. At some point, she decided to open her own law practice so that she could serve clients in the way she wanted. Her goal is to render high-quality legal services at a reasonable cost.
She also provides other types of legal services for her immigration clients, e.g., setting up a corporation, buying a home, drafting employment agreements and so on.
