I am Mr. Dehra's client for my son's immigration case. He is very prompt, professional, honest, straight forward, informative and sincere. He solved my son's case in a very short time without any issues. He answered all my questions promptly and he is a man of his word. He advised me about everything in detail. I will definitely refer him to my family and friends.

I have worked with Amit for 6 years on H1-Bs and Green Card processing and his team has always provided me excellent services. I had to go through RFEs and they were very helpful in dealing with those circumstances.

Atty Dehra was the counsel for my H1 application, and I couldn't have had better representation. He knows the law, how to respond to any request for further evidence, and how to achieve a disposition that works for the client. The case was handled ethically and efficiently. My calls and emails were responded promptly, irrespective of the time zone difference. I highly recommend Atty Dehra.

Working with Dehra Miotke Immigration Law Firm has been a great and prolific experience for me. I am very much pleased with their professional service and the manner in which my H1-B petition was drafted and filed. As a result of their wonderful work, my H1B petition was approved in a very short period.
I personally want to thank Amit Dehra for providing me the latest updates, advice and valuable guidance. He is undoubtedly the best Immigration Attorney and I highly recommend him. Thank you Amit!

We have waited a long time and went through a lot of personal sacrifices to be in this country legally. We've had somewhat negative experiences along the way, which is why we were wary about the immigration process. Atty. Dehra and Ms James from the Tampa office were very timely and upfront. They explained to us the best and worst case scenario, the immigration process in detail, and the rationale behind the immigration process. They answered our calls and emails within minutes and delivered the services they said they would within a short time frame. We visited their office several times, and we leave their office feeling confident that our case is in good hands. Our case took about 17 months from start to finish . The wait time was short, considering that it was delayed due events that was only controlled by the USCIS. Very short compared to the amount of time we already wasted in the past when our case was handled by other law firms.
Immigration is a daunting, if not scary, part of seeking a better life in America for people like us. We are professionals and law-abiding citizens. We have high praises for Atty. Dehra and Ms Shirin James for helping us go through the proper process of immigration and reside in this country legally.

Amit Dehra has been my immigration attorney, both for business and personal needs. He knows the immigration laws very well. Prior to taking on a case, he explains the process, timelines and possible hurdles. He has been spot on in the predictions. He has processed Green Card, H1B and related visas for the employees. At a personal level, most recently, he processed the K-Visa for my son's fiance. I am glad that I retained Amit to do the processing, since I was not aware of the types of hurdles one faces. His documenntation was thorough, always on time and excellent communication throughout the process.
I have recommended him to others and they have given me similar feedback.
It is tough to find honest and hard working attorneys. You got one in Amit.

I Had a citizenship case with USCIS which was completed and Mr Dehra's dedication and thorough work ethics have helped me to present my application.

I will be acquiring his services in the near future as well as recommending him to any friends or family members who needs any legal immigration help,

We had one of the most difficult and complex cases. Amit Dehra made our Green Card application process simple. He is an expert in his field. It was a great pleasure working with him. He is very easy to work with and very knowledgeable about immigration. He made himself available for all our questions and kept us up to date during the process. I recommend Amit without hesitation to anyone who needs an immigration attorney, especially those who have very complex cases.

I met Amit in January 2005 when I got in trouble with immigration.
I had decided to do it by myself and do the paperwork on my own but I used a wrong form and I was denied and asked to leave the country with my family!
I consulted the one that was my attorney at that time and he said I had no chance and I better catch the first plane back "home". I was devastated.
Luckily I found Amit.
He gave me a 50% chance (which is way better than zero!) and guided me to resubmit my application and wrote a letter to explain my case.
Within short I got my approval letter!
Meanwhile we decided to start working on being permanent residents and Amit helped us through it for the 6 years it took!
Today we received our final approval and we will soon have our green cards!
I so appreciated the support and courtesy received by this great attorney. All my questions have always been answered immediately, even after hours or during weekends by email!
I would highly recommend him for any difficult case too as he helped me through bumpy roads when others had given me no chance.
He is always positive and confident. He managed to lift my spirits when I had doubts and fears.
I will always be grateful to Amit and his gracious assistant Shirin for all these years assisting me and my family.

I was in immigration removal proceedings. Attorney Dehra represented me. Based on Attorney Dehra litigation skills, the immigration judge granted my waiver and terminated my proceedings. I am extremely thankful to Attorney Dehra for all of his hard work.

I was represented by Attorney Dehra before immigration court. Attorney Dehra was able to get my case granted. I am now allowed to stay in the United States indefinitely. I am extremely grateful to Mr. Dehra for all of his hard work and assistance. I have no hesitation in recommending him.

As the title says He is the best, and I am glad I got him as my attorney to represent my case , He delivered every time he said he would, there were times when I was very nervous and had second thoughts about my case but Amit allways told me that he had a full confidence in my case and I will see positive results , which I did. I will like to share one point in my case where my wife and kids when went to US consulate in Copenhagen few yrs back were turned away by embassy staff citing few stupidest reasons they could come up with and told them that I have to be present at Embassy if my family wants H4 stamped , I talked to Amit , he wrote them a letter and mailed it to my wife. And assured me that visa will be stamped and when I asked him what if they still insisted that I have to be present there, Amit told me there is no such law and if they will not stamp the visa he will talk to the congressman and make him write a letter to the American Conusulate . But you know what...as soon as my wife went to the Conusulate with that letter, the staff was very courteous and told her that last time they made a mistake and stamped the visa without even checking any papers or pay Stubbs . I can go on and on, I will highly recommend him to everybody , believe me you can't go wrong.
He has treated me more like a friend then a client , which I really appericitae and wish him good luck for future.

I am a small business owner in the technology industry. Over the past year, I have used the services of Mr. Dehra and his firm to assist with the hiring of three highly qualified individuals. I was a complete novice in this process. Mr. Dehra guided me all through the process and helped me successfully get the approvals for my case filings. He has returned my calls over the weekends, after hours and has patiently answered all questions. I cannot ask for a more dependable and accesible attorney. I highly recommend his services for your immigration needs.

Amit is an exceptionally talented and gifted immigration lawyer. His knowledge of immigration law - both substantive and procedural and its application are truly amazing. Amit has an eye for detail but at the same time his ability to sift through the factual maze and pick the relevant issues is incredible. Amit's focus and zeal to get results for his clients are also phenomenal. I consider myself very fortunate to have retained Amit for my immigration needs. I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend Amit and wish him luck for his future endeavors.

Amit Dehra has worked on my children’s most impossible case and made them possible. He helped us get status when my children were without one and wanted to go to school. His whole team from the secretary to Amit himself, did a constant follow up on my case. He is very dedicated with this work, and is able to give the time and attention a client needs for these immigration matters. He was easily reachable via phone and email. There have been times where I got instant replies from him. Overall he is very straight forward regarding legal advice. I have been his client for 4 years and till this day he treats me with utmost respect and honor. I could not ask for a better lawyer than him. He makes time for his clients whether that is weekend morning or it is late evenings. He is well considerate of his clients time and work schedule.

As the HR Manager for a global IT Solutions provider, I have relied on Amit and his team to handle the painstaking tasks involved with employing foreign nationals in today's economic and immigration-focused society. No matter what challenge I lay before them, they meet each one with the same approach: Ask questions, formulate a strategy, review with the client and get their inputs, finalize the case, get POSITIVE results!!!
During my career, I have worked with more than two dozen attorneys, in a multitude of fields, and rank Amit Dehra right there at the top. Many attorneys hold back certain information that a client could use as refence material, in fear that doing so would eliminate the need for the attorney's services in the future. Amit and his team are just the opposite, they seem to take pride in educating their clients and watching the relationship grow from attorney-client to trusted advisor-long term business advocate.
Our four year relationship has seen more than 50 foreign nationals, and their families, begin, continue, or realize, their dream of coming to the United States for either educational, employment, or personal opportunites they could not get elsewhere. Each of these cases was handled as if it was his family. What more can one ask for?
If more firms lived up to the standards enforced at Dehra Miotke, maybe more people would see lawyers as an ally, instead of the enemy. Each case is different in its particulars, but the one constant is that Amit and his team make the beneficiary (and the employer!!) feel as if this case is the only one they are working.
