I cannot say enough good about the miracles that this firm makes happen. Lakshmi kept my family together. The fees are cheaper than reasonable, and she holds your hand every step of the way, including interviews. She even traveled to help us (we compensated her travel expenses). She was always realistic about possibilities (good or bad), kind, and straightforward with us. Her team is always available and compassionate. Don't wait! Run, don't walk to this firm. :)

Lakshmi has restored my faith in lawyers. She has helped me with critical immigration case twice and succeeded both times. She is very dedicated to her clients and builds a solid relationship. She listens very carefully and provides as much time needed for consultation. I can't express how much I appreciate her efforts in getting my permanent resident card. I would've been lost without her legal advice. In today's era of information, one can easily believe that anything a lawyer can do, can be done individually - if you work with Lakshmi, you will realize how important it is to have a lawyer represent you who understands the law very well.

I would like to begin thanking Almighty God first for guiding me and my wife to get in touch with Ms Lakshmi Nayar from Nayar &McIntyre firm. Ms Lakshmi came across as very knowledgeable and a very warm individual.
She guided and assisted me with the entire process of my I-485[Permanent Residence] and within two months of my filing, I received my Interview call and by god's grace got an approval within the next 10 days of my Interview.
I highly recommend Ms Lakshmi Nayar's services not because of my success story but because of her strengths. One of the most impressive qualities of her was that she is A VERY HONEST LAWYER.
I wish you many more successes and keep up the good work for helping the community.

I approached Lakshmi Nayar for my I-601 application that was not going to be an easy case, but she handled it in a very professional and efficient manner, giving me all the time I needed to ask questions and understand my options. She was accessible and forthcoming and unlike most of the attorneys, it was clear that money was not her focus. She was our guardian in one of our helpless times. She was very patient, explaining in clear layman's terms all the nuances and legalities of my case. In addition, her organizational skills and detail-orientedness were instrumental in making sure that no stone was left unturned.She guided us throughout the process and when my waiver was approved, she was kind enough to ask me once in a while if my visa was issued. I am so happy that I have made the right choice of hiring a lawyer with such qualities. I do recommend her so highly as an attorney and as a person and will certainly refer to her anyone looking for legal services.
I was very lucky to have Lakshmi as my lawyer because it was so difficult to proof extreme hardship. Thanks to her, we were able to reunite and continue with our lives.

Lakshmi was the most friendly, helpful and hard working lawyer I have ever dealt with. From the moment we met Lakshmi we knew she was right for the job. Because of some extenuating circumstances my wife and I believed that legal representation was the way to go and with representation like Lakshmi you get every penny worth.
My wife and I can't tell you how Lakshmi took the daunting challenge of the immigration process and literally made us feel like we were completely covered. She gave us the number one thing you can ask in a situation like that; stability, a good attitude, and a clear edge in her field.
We met with four lawyers before meeting Lakshmi all of which were wanting to charge much more and were ALL recommending my wife move back to mexico and file there. Lakshmi however, charged a FAIR fee and in our opinion had real sympathy for our situation and truly worked hard for us.
I can't praise Lakshmi enough and if you don't believe me just meet her and you'll see that as far as immigration lawyers go in the metroplex Lakshmi and McIntyre are truly a cut above the rest.
Thank you very much,

I was extremely pleased with the service Lakshmi Nayar provided us. Initially we visited a large law firm that promised the best service and promised to be well educated. We were told to forget getting a green card that if we pursued it we would just find deportation (this attorney read from a book the whole time). WE were brokenhearted and gave up for a yr.
A year later a friend recommended Lakshmi Nayar telling us to run the case by her. What was there to lose? We agreed and she personally gave us a consultation. We honestly went thinking we would here the same result. We were shocked when she told us there was high possibilities of a green card. She was very informed with the law. She told us all the process what could happen but reassured us she would be there with us the whole way. Her price was very reasonable. She told us to talk about it and let her know.
We went home and realized it was now or never. NOTHING TO LOSE! She seemed to know what she was talking about and unlike the prior atty she wasnt reading from a book or anything. We went ahead and signed with her. She inmediatly got working on the case. There was a small bump in our case but she assured us that it was nothing to be afraid of she would help us. Approx four months after sending our residency app and work permit app (sent in sept) we received work permit (january). One month (February) after we received a interview date for a month later (March). We went to our interview this wk. She sat with us through the whole wait which took longer than expected. But she kept us calm explaining in detail what to expect. We were inmediatly approved.
I cant say how thankful we are we found her. She personally would take care of any question or concern we had. She walked us through the whole process.
No doubt she would do all she can do to help anyone with theyre case.

I highly recommend Lakshmi to anyone seeking expert advise or representation for immigration matters. Laskshmi successfully represented me for my Green Card sponsorship application. I chose Lakshmi over other lawyers mainly because of her command on the subject matter, she personally handles your case, answers all your queries thru out the process to your satisfaction, gives sound advise. Lakshmi stood out on all counts, I recommend, anyone seeking representation to meet Lakshmi once before making a decision.

I find it hard to trust people, especially with personal issues such as my immigration status. After meeting with Lakshmi I felt I could trust her with my case; she carried herself very professional and made me feel comfortable on each step or the process. Even more, she made it so easy to understand the requirements and to gather all the documentation needed. Looking forward to working with you on my next step of the immigration process.
Thank you so much Laksmiâ€¦ :-)

Atty Lakshmi Nayar is definitely one of the best Immigration Lawyers out there. I did a lot of researching and found her to be very resourceful in dealing with US immigration especially really complicated cases like mine.
Ms Nayar and her team went out of the way to understand our complicated immigration tangle. She was sympathetic to our limitations and did much more than we had expected from her. What started out as a nightmare for my family turned out very well thanks to her truly dedicated effort in helping us. I feel she was more a friend to us than our lawyer. She was always one step ahead and i never really had to ask her about the status of my case.
The fact that I have never met Atty Nayar until today speaks volumes about her strong work ethic and professionalism and the ease with which i was able to work with her. When we started out I was outside the country and my wife was in Florida so we never got a chance to meet her but now all thanks to her i have joined my family here in the US.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone who needs help dealing with complicated immigration issues. I can assure you that you will get the very best counsel from her. I will definitely seek her help for my future immigration requirements.

Ms. Lakshmi attention to detail and professionalism is the reason we became residents of this country we love very much. Our residency application somewhat become complicated after our previous legal advisors' oversight. Ms. Lakshmi took on our case and successfully re-filed our residency application. She continued to keep us informed as new information became available and more importantly, the legal fees to represent us fit our budget. Despite being financially constrained, we approached Ms. Lakshmi once again to represent us in our citizenship application. We could not be happier with the outcome of both cases and ultimately Ms. Lakshmi superb professionalism.

when my Wife and I were married we wanted nothing more than to be together but the immigration process was truly daunting and so complex. As we were working to select an immigration attorney what really set Lakshmi apart from the other attorneys we interviewed was that it was obvious to us that she truly cared about her clients and it was not simply just another case for her. It was this sense of caring and her obvious expertise that ultimately led us to select Lakshmi as our immigration attorney.
As we began working through the immigration process what really impressed us was how knowledgeable, efficient, and fast she was at processing our paperwork. We know others who had been in similar situations and based on their experiences we were expecting our Visa to take a year or longer to be issued. However through Lakshmi's expert support and ability to navigate the complexities of the immigration process we finished in less than 7 months. Again we can not be happier to be together and much quicker then we had expected.
Some of the other qualities that we really appreciated when working with Lakshmi was the patience she showed in answering our many questions. As we were both in a process that we were unfamiliar with we had many questions. She always took the time to quickly and thoroughly answer our questions and explain the next steps. This really helped to put us at ease as we dealt with a very stressful and unfamiliar situation. We also really appreciated how easy she made the process for us. Lakshmi was always well organized and well prepared every time we visited the office. With my hectic and busy schedule this was very much appreciated.
I highly recommend Lakshmi as an immigration attorney. She is everything we could have wanted and did amazing work.

Lakshmi was very professional and knowledgeable during my K-1 visa process. She knew the process, had a system in place, and kept me organized. She always returned my emails or phone calls. Once I submitted all the documents she needed, she organized it and her office took care of it. Our case went through the system very fast. In some cases through the process, we were setting records with how quickly the government was responding to the paperwork submitted via Lakshmi Nayar. I wanted to be sure I got this K-1 Visa process done right the first time and in a quick manner and hiring Lakshmi Nayar made that happen. She is the one you want to get for you immigration cases.

My first family lawyer who filed i-130 petition for me on behalf of my wife would not even know about my petition when I had received an adjudication interview letter after two years. I had to even re-fax my case papers to him along with client-lawyer agreement. And then He told me he could join my interview with $300/hour fees and travel expenses. And that was it.
I started searching for best lawyers who can help me with my case. I paid $35/30 minutes just for the initial consultation and review of my case to a well known lawyer who advised me I may have to start the whole process in my native country.
Being a family person I would never accept to leave my family alone in US. That has started my life without sleep and then I thought I have had follow the law all my life and there should be a better resolution for my case. And then I searched Ms.Lakshmi Nayar on eknazar.com well known desi site in dallas area.
I called her and she gave me immediate appointment at my convenience. She offered free consultation plus review of my case. Her office is located in Irving,TX. on highway 183, wells fargo building.
She was absolute professional during the initial review and asked me the full details and truth about my case. She knew my case immediately and she told me she can help me with my case as she had represented similar cases previously. In addition she told me she would come to the interview without extra fees or expenses. She was confident and that was more than enough for me. I told her I would like her to represent my case with USCIS.
She was very much affordable than anyother lawyer in the area. She did even allowed me to pay the fees in the installments which was surprised to me.The client-lawyer agreement was done immediately and then the documentation and then case follow ups. She answered all my doubts and silly questions without any inconvenience. She even answered my e-mails in week-ends or on holidays. Within two months i received my work permit and then Green Card interview. She accompanied with me and my wife during the interview. We got won my Green Card. It took about 3 months. All is Well now. I appreciate her efforts and provided time for me.
I recommend Lakshmi Nayar to anyone who need legal represantation with USCIS or any other field she can professionally handle because she know what she is doing and that what matters......Keep one thing in mind each case is unique.....

I've worked with plenty of lawyers in the past and since meeting Lakshmi, I haven't gone anywhere else for advice. She's very knowledgeable and responds ultra quickly. Just a pleasure to work with and most importantly, she gets the work done.

I highly recommend Lakshmi Nayar for any immigration related services. I've enjoyed working with her and wanted to thank her for outstanding services and knowledge in the entire process. My situation was very different from other applicants getting naturalization, which Lakshmi had informed me all the pros and cons at the begining of the process and kept me informed about the status at every stage and guided me to get my Citizenship.
