Kaushik recently offered to speak about Immigration Law to my organization. He has been providing legal council to my company for several years now. The topic of discussion was Physician Visa's. The presentation was excellent! Kaushik is an incredibly sharp guy, that appears to be an endless source of information on the topic. What was most impressive was his ability to take a complex topic, and present it in a way that was clear and concise. His presentation was engaging and informative. I would highly recommend his services. He has been an asset to our company, and as it turns out, is an excellent presenter as well.

I can’t thank Kaushik and his team enough for helping reunite me with my wife and son after 16 months of separation. When I came to Kaushik to handle my wife’s I-601 and I-212 waiver packet, we had just fired our previous lawyer. Our previous lawyer was terrible at communicating with us. In fact, there were times when there was no communication – no return phone calls or email responses.
With Kaushik and his team, it was the complete opposite. Kaushik and Chris were available and timely in their responses whenever I had any questions or concerns. The number one complaint against lawyers in this country is not poor quality of work but failing to communicate with their client. I can honestly say, communication was definitely NOT a problem with Kaushik or Chris.
The waiver packet itself was completed with the highest degree of quality and professionalism. Just as important, the waiver presented the best arguments effectively. All this resulted in the waiver being approved easily and my family and I reunited.
I would definitely recommend Kaushik to anyone looking for a good immigration lawyer. Thanks again Kaushik and Chris!

It has been a pleasure to work with Kaushik Ranchod and his team, from a professional and personal aspect.
I always got instant response to my questions during the application progress for a greencard and with their help I received the greencard within the estimated time. It has been great to have such a knowledgeable team involved in such an important matter.
I would not hesitate to recommend Ranchod Law Group to my friends.

Kaushik was able to quickly assistance me with diffcult questions for applying for a US visitor's visa. My relative and her daughter want to apply for a visa, but the US embassy in Manila had given my relative difficulty in years past. Kaushik was reassuring and encouraged her to try again.

My wife and I are so happy with every aspect of working with the Ranchod Law Group for my J-1 Waiver. Kaushik was completely upfront and honest about no guarantees in any case, but I was confident with the way he handled the entire process from start to finish. My case was complicated, but he and Chris (his senior paralegal) worked through all the details, and their experience showed. They discussed the case with me in consultation initially for a very reasonable fee prior to proceeding and were available for personal discussion about deadlines, paperwork, couriers, etc almost anytime I needed. I will be highly recommending the Ranchod Law Firm to friends and colleagues who are in need of an immigration attorney.

My wife and I couldn't have asked for better guidance and professionalism as these law group well lead by Mr. Kaushik with such personable team such as Rosanna, Chris, Michael & Rene were throughout our case. As soon as we got engaged, my wife and I started looking at resources that would help us live happily and without any concerns, but the process was a little overwhelming, yet we didn't let the challenge defeat our purpose to live happily without any concerns on this end.
> The first phone call and the conversation I had with Kaushik, gave me the feeling that we were in great hands. From then on, Rosanna was very proactive about having us on the same page with them and helped us getting our stuff well organized and ready for the next step; also, amazing support and flexibility for any questions or concers we had, she was there for us. Then, Chris was a great support with such positive energy that just made us stay on track and patiently wait for the last couple steps. Last but not least, Rene and Michael were outstanding delivering news and getting us prepare for the last step, the interview. Finally, Mr. Kaushik received us once again on his office to prepared us for the interview, and yes he was there for any questions along the process as well, as I've wrote above, we couldn't have been more happy for the exceptional and outstanding service we received. They've been a truly blessing.
> The Ranchod Law Group is the team for those individuals just like me who don't want to live in the shadows anymore privating you to enjoy a happy married life. Cristal and I are thrilled with our future ahead and it couldn't have been possible if it the Ranchod Law Group wasn't there on the first place.
> Thank you very much and we wish you the best with your future clients. It's truly been our pleasure to work with you guys.

Kaushik and his team helped me win a difficult case. My green card was denied and I needed a special waiver called a Hardship Waiver. I did not have much time to submit my waiver application but Kaushik and Chris worked diligently to prepare an extremely thorough application. It was approved and I got my green card last week! They worked in a very sharp and very meticulous way. Thank you for your amazing work!

Kaushik Ranchod is a lawyer who knows the law! I highly recommend him. I have used him on several occasions. Kaushik is powerful, assertive, trustworthy and reliable. He is prompt in returning my calls and responding to emails. This lawyer establishes trust and confidence immediately. I highly recommend Kaushik to anyone interested.

I have consulted with Kaushik Ranchod several times in the last five years during the process of maintaining my green card and applying for naturalization. He has been unfailingly prompt, helpful, and informative in every single interaction, not to mention absolutely honest and very pleasant. I have recommended him to at least a dozen friends and colleagues and he handled their cases with the same level of professionalism and trustworthiness. A real gem of a lawyer.

I and my wife decided to engage the services of an immigration law firm for the family-based Green card application last January after getting overwhelmed by the intricacies of the application process - there was too many forms and and a large number of questions that we simply could not be sure of how to answer and we just did not want to take any chances attempting it ourselves as we did not know what a mistake could cost us . We did not have much prior experience with immigration law firms in the Bay area and relied on a combination of online reviews and gut feeling based on the initial few interactions with the firms. In the end we picked Kaushik Ranchod of the Ranchod group because of the quality of service we got in the initial stages:
1. When we first called and left a voice message, their office called us back promptly, listened to our case and took their time to explain how the process works and even set us up with one hour of consultation with Mr Ranchod. This seemed in total contradiction of one of the negative reviews that we had read on Yelp and in turn made us trust the positive ones more.
2. We really liked our first consultation session with Mr Ranchod. He seemed courteous, knowledgable and very positive about our case. Also the law firm itself seemed relatively small and therefore we felt we were more likely to get the attention that we needed. Now this may not be always be the case but based on personal experience, I did not always get the due attention when dealing with the immigration attorneys engaged by my employer. They have generally been from bigger immigration law firms obviously dealing with larger volume of cases.
3. Their rates seemed reasonable compared to some of the other firms we had approached.
Our experience through the entire process was very positive and interactions with everyone in his team very smooth. Mr. Ranchod took his time to listen to our case and told us clearly what to do - what documents to get ready, forms to fill out, medical check-ups to get done etc. During the initial phase of the case, we worked with Rosanna, one of the paralegals who prepared most of the forms for us based on the information we provided. We went though a few iterations in this process to correct some of the mistakes on the forms but she was very professional and always answered our emails and phone calls promptly and sent us revisions of the forms on time. Thereafter we worked with Chris who again was very helpful and guided us through the next stages of the process and kept us updated on what to do next. Then just before our final USCIS interview, Mr Ranchod himself conducted a mock interview and spent a good 30 - 45 mins going over his questions, giving feedback on our answers and checking out the documents that we had prepared. Based on our reading of the USCIS interview process, both me and my wife were a bit nervous as we had learned that sometimes even genuine cases get summoned for fraud interviews. But the mock interview calmed our nerves and gave us a real confidence boost. Our final immigration interview went very smoothly and I got my Green Card within the next month. We are very grateful to the Ranchod Law Group for all their help. I am glad I went with them and highly recommend them.

The Ranchod law group got my green card in 3 months. We are really grateful for Ranchod Law groupâ€™s assistance.
It was not easy to find a nice attorney in bay area for us since we are new here. However, after sending e-mails for couple attorneys, we noticed the Ranchod Law group was the one always replied the fastest. During the filing process, we could still get our questions answered by Mr. Ranchod in 24 hours. He did the mock interview with us in person very patiently and throughly even he had some schedule conflicts problems. We also talked with Chris who took care of us when Mr. Ranchod was on vacation. Chris is very helpful and reliable too.
Over all, the Ranchod Law group is very professional and friendly. We will not hesitate to recommend him to our friends.

The Ranchod law group were courteous and patient with me through all my questioning. They certainly took the fear away regarding which forms we needed to fill out, also walking us through the steps required. I am so glad we used them instead of going it alone, they really took the anxiety away. I'm now a permanent resident of the U.S.A. I highly recommend the Ranchod Law Group to anybody seeking legal help in regards to immigration.

The assistance and support I received during the stressful process of obtaining my J1 waiver was excellent.
Competence and confidence together with a very friendly attitude and capability to promptly address questions/issues made a substantial difference.
I am truly grateful for the legal services I received and would definitely recommend this attorney.

I met and talked with many lawyers, most of them said I have no chance to win my case. They had no confidence to deal with my case.
I met Kaushik Ranchod, he listened my case, and told me it is a tough case, but he like to work on it with me. I like this attitude to work.
Posted by Gary, a Immigration client, Flag
The Ranchod Law Group were fantastic, extremely friendly and professional...My case was not the easiest due to complications on my side. The Ranchod team remained positive, patient and helpful throughout. Kaushik guided us through the interview effortlessly resulting in me receiving my Green card. Thanks a million guys, I would recommend the Team to anyone going through this process.
Big thanks to Shailah to whom i first spoke with, she made me feel completely at ease, i called 5 different lawyer firms but Shailah's honest and relaxing manner had me hooked....

I was referred to Mr. Kaushik by my best friend who was already his very satisfied client going through immigration process and I have to say that this was my best experience I have ever had with a lawyer.
First time I called his office, I received a phone call back from Shailah from The Ranchod Law Group within the first half an hour. That was already the best first impression for me comparing to the other Law firms. I really liked that Kaushik gave me his set rate, so you know upfront what costs you should expect. Kaushik together with his paralegal team Priscilla and Chris are working with you consistently and make you feel comfortable and confident that everything will be filled out properly and fast. Anytime I needed help or had any questions or concerns, I was always able to reach their office and received replies to my emails immediately. It was really important to me to have someone who knows everything about US immigration law and could help me to go through the whole process with a strong support. Mr. Kaushik together with his paralegal team has been extremely helpful to me and all their hard work contributed to the successful approval of my immigration status this week, same as my best friend’s. I am definitely using Kaushik’s help in the future again and would recommend him to everyone who is looking for a good lawyer and doesn’t know where to go.

I have known Kaushik for the past 1 year by way of my US Immigration visa application and I have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient and precise in his advise. He is extremely well informed of not just the US requirements for visa applications but also some of the processes required to be performed in US Embassies abroad, as each tend to have different requirements. I strongly recommend Kaushik's services as a lawyer for his depth and breadth of experience and his valuable insights on a case.

I hired Kaushik to represent me when I applied for my permanent resident card. He was a steady guide, coaching me through a complicated bureaucratic process. He was very reassuring and helped me feel comfortable and relaxed, just knowing that I had his backup knowledge and support. He kept me well informed at every stage and his help hastened the achievement of my residency.

Mr. Kaushik Ranchod and his paralegal, Mr. Chris Bonhert, were fantastic from the start. Although the immigration issue that my wife and I faced was fairly straight forward, as with any process involving the government it had its trying times. Whether the issue was with paperwork, documentation, medical exams, or interview questions, both Mr. Ranchod and Mr. Bonhert were always professional, prompt, and offered solutions that always worked.
In addition, there was never a single time during our six-month working relationship where it was 'difficult' to get in touch with Mr. Ranchod's law firm. Even if the office was closed or it was during a holiday, a phone call or email never went unanswered.
I would highly recommend the Ranchod Law Group to anyone in need of immigration legal service. In addition to the professional and timely attitude, Mr. Ranchod and all of his associates are very easy to talk to and an absolute delight to work with.
