Guestbook entry for 2006
These are comments from our clients over the last many years. You can browse comments by year or by topic. We are proud of our clients' appreciation and encouragement above anything else we have ever done. You will note, many of our clients have most graciously accepted to respond to emails about our services. If you do write them, please be respectful of their time.
Thank you for all your assistance. After 10 years in the US and almost 5 years after filing for our green cards we can now relax and enjoy our lives. Would recommend you to anyone needing immigration assistance
Heather and Mathew were most efficient, personable and timely in the processing of the application and clarification of any doubts I had. The total time for a Schedule A worker Permanent Residency/Green Card took under 4 months from filing.
I also appreciated the reasonable payment option.
First of all; I would like to thank the entire Team member who has worked in my case. Special Kudos goes to my case manager 'Aruna Marthi'; she did absolutely fabulous job to get me through this whole process. The time, and efforts you guys have given me the only reason of this case successful. Can you believe it, I got my whole process completed within 6 months and I-485 got approved in less than 2 months.
Thanks again for all of your efforts.
I am very thankful to Rajiv Khanna and his team of professionals for their work on my employer sponsored green card case. All of the people from the firm I had to deal with in the process were very nice, always responded to the numerous questions that I had on timely basis. On a couple of occasions, I needed somethings done really fast in order to catch a passport expiration date and another deadline and Law Offices of Rajiv Khanna were there for me, handling my paperwork in the fastest possible way as requested by me. With their help and probably some luck I was able to complete the whole green card process from start to finish in less than an year. This time also includes three months during which the ball was in my court, while I was gathering different documents for the I-140 and I-485. I am very happy with the services of The Law Offices of Rajiv Khanna and hope this message can bring them more business, which they deserve.
We thank Mr.Rajiv Khanna and his team, especially Bharathi and Ursula for their professionalism and diligence in handling our case. We have successfully got our H1B and H4 approvals. Thank you very much for the excellent service.
With best regards,
George and Teena
: Dear Rajiv:
I really appreciate the diligent work that you and your team put into my case.
The fact that we didn't get any RFEs for my I-140 and I-485 petitions, in spite of having my previous I-140 petition and the MTR denied by USCIS, shows clearly that you know the way to present material to USCIS so that it doesn't leave any questions/doubts in their minds that we qualify to stay in this country. I believe this is the result of your analysis of each case meticulously and preparing the supporting documentation according to the nature of the case, rather than following a cookie cutter formula like lot of other attorneys. I have seen my previous attorney do it and lot of friends' attorneys doing this. The standard statements I have heard so many times... "We don't need to submit that document now. We can submit that if USCIS asks for it". Forget about sending the documents to USCIS, they don't even let us know that we may need a piece of document and ask us to have it ready. Everything seems to be reactive, rather than proactive. No wonder USCIS takes so long to process some applications. They have to ask for every piece of information and at some point, they might even deny the petition for lack of clear evidence.
For all people who are going through the long and painful process of getting GC, there is only one advise I would like to give. Try to have a highly experienced immigration attorney like Rajiv on your side from day one. It is really hard to correct the mistakes done by other attorneys later. A petition filed with all the necessary paperwork, in the correct form and order will save you from a lot of heartache later on. Even if your company doesn't reimburse for the expenses, it's worth paying for it from your pocket.
And Rajiv, I would like to make a small suggestion to your staff too. While both my I-140 petition (re-filing) and H-1B extension petitions were being processed at the same time (during Dec 05 - Jan 06 timeframe), when your staff asked for copies of the same documents multiple times, it was getting on my employers nerves. The rant I kept on hearing from my company's HR people was, 'we just mailed/faxed them that document last week. Why are they asking for another copy again?'. Members of different teams didn't seem to have any idea that another petition is being handled by a person in the same office and that those documents already exist in another folder in the same office. A few small notes tagged to the files or consolidation of documents for each client might make the experience even more pleasant.
Thank you so much for your help and attention. I wouldn't even think of going to any other attorney for any future immigration related work I might have.
I would like to say my BIG "thank you" to the Mathew/Aruna team. I posted message early after my I 140 was flawlessly done. Now finally I and my family reached very important milestone - we received our Green Cards in the mail. What I can say - the excellent job of the Rajiv's team and a bit of luck I got the whole process PERM-EAD/AP-I140-I486 for a little bit more that 8 months. Not a single RFE. Not a single hiccup. That can only speak of how professional all the paperwork was prepared. I HIGHLY recommend Rajiv's company. If you want to put your fate in good hands, you can count on this company. Always with good advice, with excellent open communication channels and ready to get in action to serve better its clients.
Now that my journey reached its final destination and there are new prospective on the horizon, I will continue to spread the word about this excellent company –
The Law Offices of Rajiv S. Khana.
Good luck to every one.
My wife and I received our GC approval within 10 months for the whole process with Rajiv S. Khanna as our attorney. We are very impressive on the professionalism of Rajiv. He and Diane helped us at every point in the whole process. The application is so smooth that we never get any problem or in completion about the paperwork done under their guidance. Great thanks to Diane Lombardo, who is always available and is happy to respond to any questions. Also many, many thanks to Kumuda, Rita, Lakshmi and other staff members who are very co-operative and would return calls and emails promptly. We are really glad that we chose this Law firm. We are greatly pleased with the service provided by Rajiv and his staff on my GC application.
Dear Roopa, Pramita, Vani, and all those who handled my case,
I would like to thank you all for your efforts in documenting my case (RIR/EB2) in a professional manner that led to the approval of Labor Certification.
I sincerely thank Roopa for her prompt responses whenever I requested information. She was very efficient and made sure that I was updated whenever there was a update.
I hope that the team will do its best in the next steps as well.
I got my PERM Labor certified in less than a week. Special Thanks to Mr. Vijay Durgam. They prepare and review the documentation very thoroughly, I always got the feed back from Vijay on my queries within 24 hours. Vijay was so patient to answer my queries during the process.
Many Thanks to everyone who helped me get my labor certified!
