Dear Attorney Zhou, (Joe Jian Zhou)

Thank you very much for all your help though my NIW application. I was thrilled to receive an approval on my petition without an RFE, especially since mine was a non-standard case (business background). I greatly appreciate your guidance through the past few months, and look forward to working with you on my adjustment of status application (consular processing).  

Thank you very much,

Xxxx (Client)
