Mani is the lawyer that you want if you need immigration help. I've known Mani for a long time, we've done jury trials together, and I have watched him establish himself as the go-to guy for immigration law in Michigan. I think the reason why people hire Mani beyond his skills as a lawyer is because he is compassionate and understanding of anybody who has ever dealt with the murky waters of immigration law. The reason why he is so understanding is that he's been there himself. As a young man, Mani experienced many of the same things immigrants to the United States experience as he became an American citizen. Mani will tell you at every turn in the immigration process, there are people who try to take advantage of immigrants who just want to live a better life in the United States. There is only one way to avoid the grief, stress, and anxiety of the immigration process, call Mani. He will stand by you and get you to your dream of becoming a US citizen.
