  • Santosh Narayan

    Anish is probably the smartest immigration attorney in Los Angeles. He's a wealth of information, certified as an immigration specialist by the State Bar and his trial experience is something that sets him apart.

  • Nicklaus James Misiti

    I endorse this lawyer. I had some questions about a similar case to one Mr. Vashistha has handled in the past. He was very knowledgeable and cordial in discussing his experience with me. I definitely would recommend him.
