I've been working with Mr. Vashistha for the past four years as my immigration attorney who had approved for me two H1B visas with two different companies and finally my Green Card. He is an attorney who you feel safe and in good hands with. I have to say he is the most informative and knowledgeable immigration attorney I have worked with. I talked to multiple attorneys before Mr. Vashistha, and they all sounded the same till a friend recommended Mr. Vashistha. Although we worked remotely, as he was in a different state, which I felt was a big risk for me to take at the start, I felt he was the real deal. He told me exactly what should we go for, what he needed, and what I should do. With the first H1B visa, which is always the hardest, he made everything go so smoothly. He's always available, responds right away, and explains and answers to all questions and concerns multiple times. He is always prepared for the next step and always overcomes and prepares for any challenge. He never gave up on my case and always found a way. What was surprising as I had some issues with my first employer, he was still committed to my case even after I was granted the visa.
For my second H1B, the process went really smoothly as I started working right away, Mr. Vashistha worked on the process, and he got me the visa in no time. Right after that we started talking about getting my Green Card. He confirmed from the start that I am ready and that I do have a legit case despite some issues, so we started the process. We had some challenges that we overcame one step at a time; I would say my case wasn't an easy case. He knew exactly when to apply based on what my case needed and if there were options for me to make the process faster. For example, he made me wait till I reached 5 years of experience, which delayed us in filing for a couple of months, but it was a much much faster process at the end. Also my employer’s immigrant petition mistakenly got denied initially, but from my experience working with Mr. Vashistha, I didn't freak out. I know that he had a plan, and a few day afterward he told me exactly what we need to do and what papers we need to have the case reopened. At the end, he delivered, my residency application got approved, and I got my Green Card.
I am really thankful to Mr. Vashistha, and I recommend him to anyone who is looking for an immigration attorney.

Anish is the smartest, nicest and most talented attorney I have ever met. I came to his office 2 years ago with my dark side and hopeless. He has handled my case with confidence, efficiently, effectively and professionally. As I observe, he is truly dedicated to his clients and shown genuine interest in helping them . His answers are always thoughtful and accurate. He and his firm treat clients with caring , honest , respect, warmth and humility. I have had the honor and privilege of having Anish to be my attorney and will stand up for me in court.
I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of an extraordinary immigration attorney.

I have worked with Anish a couple of times in the past few years and each time he did a terrific job with my petition. He is easy to work with and laid out my options in very easy to understand language as opposed to legal speak. Our marriage based Greencard application has some complexity to it and Anish took the extra steps to ensure that our petition was solid. We are really happy with his honesty and professionalism.

He is one of the most confident person I have encounter.
We met him during our immigration process. We went to many lawyers for initial review and found couple of them very professional. But during the initial interaction with Anish, he came across as confident and knowledgeable lawyer. He actually made sense and knows what he is doing. He always kept us informed and guided us about the filing process, changing laws, interview and was always on the mark. One is bound to be anxious till you get the final approval but he made the entire process very smooth and most importantly, SUCCESSFUL !
At personal level too he is very humble and is always willing to help us.
I have and would highly recommend Anish to my family and friends. And, so shall you !
I wish you All The Best !

I was very impressed with Anish's professionalism, and his conduct of the case as a whole. I was anxious to have the case concluded quickly and found him to be responsive to my needs, helpful, and above all extremely efficient. He is a professional with dedication. His time management and organization skill was brilliant as I have never reminded him about my case follow up. His professional way of dealing case was stunning. My case was quite complicated and required special attention as I have been victim of Human trafficking and domestic violence. My husband has beaten me and took everything away from me. I have lost completely hope for getting better life. But Anish's guidance and help has made me feel that there is definitely way for better life. I would happily recommend him and his firm to others in future as a result of the experience I have had and service I have received. I am always thankful to Anish for my better life and future.

Anish is the best lawyer I have had. Always keeping me up to date and never letting me worry. I had difficulty applying for a US travel waiver because my application was lost. I was surprised how Anish was able to get in touch with the right people to get my application expedited. I would never have been able to get in touch with these people on my own. I am very happy with hiring Anish and plan on staying with him for all my legal needs.

I first met Anish a few years ago during a free consultation. I was seeking his help to see if my conviction was going to prevent me from getting naturalize. He confirm that it wasnt and he didnt pressure me to sign a retainer. He even said i could do it myself . I felt happy but a few days later was getting nervous again so i went to seek out advice from three more attorneys. Two other attorneys agreed with what Anish said but the third one said i was in trouble and that I need to hire him if i want to get approved. He was supposed to be the best but after my consultation i knew he was just using scare tactics to get me to sign a retainer. So i was a little scared so i set up another appointment with Anish and told him about the other lawyers answer he kindly smiled and said that i have nothing to worry about. It was then that I knew he was honest and caring that i decided to hire him. I couldn't pay all at once but Anish set up a payment plan to help me and he started on my case that same day. I had trust him completely and everything that he said was accurate and came true. He was always there when I was scared to calm me down and lift my spirits up. It was because of his guidance that i was able to accomplish this and yesterday i had my oath ceremony. I am so thankful god put Anish here on earth because of him i would still be scared to apply for naturalization. I just want to say thank u again Anish your a great lawyer and a great person. So if anyone needs a top notch lawyer dont hesitate to called the best attorney which is Anish.

I highly, highly recommend Anish as an immigration Attorney. I found through my experience that he is definitely someone you can trust.
He is the type of Attorney that has your best interest at heart. Anish helped me with my approval of U-Visa while saving me from deportation and making a clear pathway for my Green Card approval in coming the months. Throughout the process he was very thorough; he would call and/or email requesting whatever additional information was needed. It felt like he didn't mind putting the extra effort and time because he truly wanted to help me.
I couldn't emphasize enough that www.lawfirmav.com of Los Angeles has a friendly staff, you can tell that you are dealing with good people who are really on your side. When I say this I refer to both Anish and the staff. They are all positive people who made me feel like my case was their priority. Furthermore, I got the impression that they are truly trying to change the immigrant experience in this country for the best.
Finally, my previous experience with many immigration lawyers had been that they gave me an initial quote of how much their services were going to cost and then when the whole process ended in a negative outcome, they were ready to charge me more. I have spent close to $30000 only in selecting at least seven different lawyers with no positive outcome. Anish is NOT like that. He gave an initial fixed rate from the start and that is exactly what he charged at the end. Finally I don't want anybody who needs Immigration assistance should go through the stress, agony and fear for choosing a wrong attorney on the first phase of your process. I would like to recommend Anish the best choice as a Immigration Attorney.
I am thankful for his honesty and integrity.
I truly don't have anything negative to say about Anish. I am thankful for his services and I hope he continues to help many immigrants like he helped me.

"Immigration Law" is such a ride that showed us most highest Bumps of the life! We had left the hopes due to my husbands misguidance of immigration procedure, negligence of previous lawyers and as a result we were the victim of human trafficking. I was browsing the net for "Best Lawyers" in the town and came across "Mr. Anish Vashistha". Contacted him the same day. We hired Mr. Anish to represent our case. He is really honest and realistic about expectations, filing process, court procedures and timeframe. First Mr.Anish legally got this person who was trying to threaten our family on immigration grounds and filed the case for permenant residency by applying the waiver.We finally won the case because of his expertise and hard work and we obtained permanent residency sooner.
Mr.Anish is an extremely insightful, strategic immigration attorney. Regardless of the complexity of the case, he is someone who implements legal strategies very efficiently. His analytical ability and years of experience enable him to provide thoughtful, thorough, and, most importantly, practical legal advice regarding a wide variety of benefit law issues. He listens carefully to client's queries and he responds quickly and clearly with analysis and advice aimed directly at the issue. We have worked with Mr.Anish through our green card process and have never been disappointed in any aspect of his work."
"Mr.Anish Vashistha", is simply THE BEST and would definitely highly recommend him to anyone who is dealing with most complicated immigration matters.

Anish is a very knowledgeable and professional attorney, he took my case when no other attorney would even try. My case was difficult due to my criminal record which included a drug possession conviction. Anish always kept me informed and updated on what was going on with my case. I am now a US citizen and I will always be thankful to Anish for making that happen. I would highly recommend him for any immigration matters

Anish is an exceptionally great immigration lawyer. He has assisted me with all my immigration formalities. He is extremely knowledgeable about the intricacies and procedures involved in the immigration process. He is very thorough and responded to all my questions, explaining the immigration process in great detail.
He helped me process my H-1B petition, which was slightly tricky since I was working for a start-up firm with only 3 employees initially. He was able to make a compelling case and ensured I received my H-1B approval very quickly.
When I visited my country of birth for my H-1B visa, initially my visa was denied requesting additional documents. This was a cause of concern for me since I was overseas and did not know how to proceed, since the US consulate did not provide any information regarding the cause for denial. I contacted Anish and he was extremely helpful and quick to respond to all my questions. He explained the situation to me and what we would be doing to ensure that all the consulate requirements were met and then some. He was constantly in touch with me and created a response package with all the necessary documents, once again making an extremely compelling case. I simply had to print, sign and drop off the response package at the consulate. Following which I shortly received my visa (no second interview) and was able to return to the US.
I am quite impressed by Anish and he is professionalism, in-depth knowledge and willingness to answer and explain all my questions. I will be returning to Anish soon to process my L-1 petition which can enable me to start my own business.

In early 2010 I was detained in the boarder of San Isidro a couple hours after was released. August came around and just realized that my green card was about to expire. I was stressed I didn't know if I would be able to renew my green card. I looked on line for lawyers and out of all the ones that I had came across I had decided for Anish V. I highly recommend Anish Vashistha he helped me out and gave me peace of mind that very moment I spoke to him, he explained pros and cons and spoke truthfully. Throughout my case he kept me updated and and gave me comfort. He's not only an excellent lawyer but a a great heart person that takes personal interest to help in all possible ways. I definitely recommend his services.

I live in Texas, and due the complexity of my case I needed an expert to handle it. That is why I reached for Anish Vashistha in California. I was not disappointed at all. Since I´m an attorney too, I know my kind, and Anish is one of the best in his field, if not the best. He solved all my issues properly and took care of the details in person and in Texas. Also, he is always there for consultation and advice by phone. 5 stars and highly recommendable. If you have an immigration case and need an expert, Anish Vashistha is your man.

Over 10 years ago my brother got deported to Philippines of alleged drug offense. Living in Santa Maria Ca. I could not find any reliable attorney to handle my brother’s complicated case. So I decided to look outside my city/county to find a good quality Immigration lawyer to help us. I have been talking to 3-4 lawyers before I met Mr. Anish Vashistha. At first I was not sure how it would turn out since English is my second language but Anish made me feel comfortable and explained as many times as necessary for me to understand. He is very informative and knowledgeable Immigration lawyer I have known. In fact he was able to work cooperatively with the District Attorneys and the ICE office to ensure everything went smoothly with having my brother's deportation order thrown out, having him return to the US, and having his original Green Card status given back to him. What I like about Mr. Vashistha is his honesty, intelligence, and dedication to help his client receive what we are looking for. I would strongly recommend Mr. Anish Vashistha to handle your immigration problem.
To Mr. Vashistha again thank you so much for helping my brother to have his dream come true once again and of course for helping /granting my elderly mother's request before she die to have my brother back in the US. More powers to you.

Anish was the only Lawyer that would take my complicated case due to a deportation and false claim to the U.S. I am really impressed how he explained every detail of the process and was available if any questions I had for him. When I told him about my dying father he immediatly helped me get a permit, I am very grateful because I was able to see my father before he passed away last year in our country and able to return safely to my family. Thanks to Anish I have my Green card I am no longer afraid of being deported and I can provide for a better future for my family.

My wife and I tried for over twenty years to finish our immigration process. We had a very difficult case and paid a tremendous amount of money to many lawyers with no success. We finally found Anish Vashistha. He took our case with conviction and finished the case within a year. I followed through with his promises and I can't thank him enough for what he did for our family.

Mr. Anish Vashistha was able to help us with our complicated situation. Having a previous deportation and false claim to U.S. citizenship and now my husband has his green card. We are grateful that he was very patient every step of the way process and always available to us. My husband is no longer afraid of being deported and we are now able to visit his family and return safely.

I just have wonderful things to say about Mr. Vashistha. He took my immigration case and help me all the way with everything, he always kept me informed and updated and he made my case to become successful after so many lawyers made me lose hope and money. I will certainly recommend him as trustworthy, responsive and excellent lawyer as well as a human being.

Mr. Vashistha is one of the most concise and detail oriented attorneys I have ever come across. He is very personable, and extremely easy to talk to. He was able to clear up any queries, concerns and troubles that I had during my H1 B petition swiftly and efficiently. Any time I had a question, he was only a phone call away and gave us his full attention and time.
When prospective problems arose, Anish was able to find a solution to best meet the needs of his clients. Not only has he successfully represented me and getting my approval for the H1 B Visa, he did the same for my brother, whose case was also successfully completed. The best part was, he did it with a smile.
I strongly recommend him to tackle any Employment or Immigration based case, because his knowledge and tact was never ending. A true master of his craft.

I never seen this knid of professional skills and excellent service in my life reagarding my immigration case. What they did to my case is magic. My case was pending for seven years with Immigration office. Because of that I was depressed and stress out when ever I think about my status in America. Not ever three months I got my "green card". I am very thankful to Anish and his Law firm Leon Hazany for the service that they provided to me. I would highly recommended to any one who need help and assistant on their Immigration case.
Again Thank you Anish and his Law firm from botton of my heart.

My husband and I hired Anish the last week of April and by mid July my husband received his Permanent Residents.
Before we met Anish we started the process with an immigration consultant; but we stopped because if we had continued, my husband would have been deported from the U.S. to pursue his case from his country of birth. The reason for this was because my husband had entered the country illegally; therefore, he needed to ask for a pardon to USCIS, and wait for an answer (this could take from 6 months to 10 years).
Thankfully we met Anish, who advised us that he could process the case in the US. He showed us the "immigration bible," which showed that my husband was protected under section 245 (i).
Also, during that time, my husband was facing unsolved criminal issues. We were very affraid that this was going to be a problem, but Anish helped us through the documents needed and through the interview questions regarding the crime.
Overall, Anish was professional with his job, but was also very friendly attorney, making us feel comfortable. Most attorney's that we have interacted with intimidate us and it seems as if there is a wall, which we could not brake, making it very difficult for us to ask questions and much less confess the crime.
I have recommended Anish to plenty of people, and will continue to do so because I know that if he can help you, he will, but if the case has no future he will be honest about that also.
