Speaking to Rajiv was a breath of fresh of air! It was a pleasure talking to him and hearing his advice. It was good to finally to speak to a lawyer who is very professional, very knowledgeable and very caring about your personal situation. He helped us understand our options and clarified all the required processes. His wide experience provided us with great assurance, as behind his advice there is a wealth of knowledge and experience.

We consulted with Mr. Rajiv Khanna on our possibilities of getting a GC through EB1. He was the first lawyer we talked to who was very honest with us and even suggested waiting for the new immigration law to be passed to make our case easier. In addtiton this was our our first phone call  consultation with him and he didn’t charge us for it which was amazing because my own lawyer who is doing my EB2 case charges us for an hour even for a 5 minute phone-call for any clarification. He was a refreshing change from all the lawyerswe talked to. Mr. Khanna was really interested when he talked to us and gave us honest advice which I appreciated immensely. I regret that he was recommended to us after I had already processed by EB2 application with another lawyer. I would highly recommend him to all immigrants who are looking to file for their GC. I have talked to many other lawyers in the DC metro area and by far he was the best lawyer I have talked to!

I had an accident and am on disability while my green card adjustment of status application ( form I-485 ) has been pending for over 4 years. My I-140 had been approved about 5 years back but my case has been caught up in the visa backlogs at USCIS and Department of State. I wanted to know if there was any provision for help in the immigration laws, in case I am sent for long term disability or my employment is terminated before I receive my green card. I learnt that employment and disability are subjects to be discussed with a benefits or employment attorney. The only immigration benefits are via AC 21 or via a private bill. Also, that one should not loose the advance parole anytime while the AOS is pending. I want to thank Mr. Rajiv Khanna for his generosity with time and expert guidance. Over the phone I found him to have a very pleasant personality. he had me feel comfortable and didnt seem money minded at all.

I have been working within the financial industry in New York since past 6 years on H1-B visa. For my GC and H-1B extension, I chose to work with Mr. Khanna and his extremely capable team. In past 6 years, I have worked with different groups of attorneys for immigration visa things a couple of times, I can easily say that Mr. Khanna and his team was the best. Also, I had so many one-off non-standard situations with my visa application, but everything was very pleasantly accomodated and carefully handled by Mr. Khanna’s team. There was no mistakes made and their advisement was absolutely spot on. Very very professional indeed. Thank you very much to all the guys who worked on my applications.

EB1 - Outstanding Researcher/Professor

We won this case for the applicant who had eleven years teaching and research experience. Recommendation letters indicated that the applicant had a superb knowledge of not only theory but also economic technique.  The applicant was highly regarded by students, peers and experts in the field.  He was frequently called upon to review for the top, world-renowned journals in economics.

Processing Times Involved in NIW

If I may verify the processing times involved in NIW. Since it falls under EB2 category, I am assuming it may be a long time before I can get my EAD card and be able to change employers. Also, I want to confirm if there could be issues if I change employers during the process - If so, I'd prefer to change my current employer before starting with it.

You can change employers any time if you are a self-applicant and will continue to work in your stated area of national interest.  But NIW priority date will take the same time as a normal EB-2 application does.  See:
