I am the son of a Pakistani-Indian immigrant mother and native New Yorker father. I was raised in Tempe, Arizona. I love seeing a good film, eating some good food, and of course traveling. I have studied in France and have worked in Thailand and Cambodia. I have traveled several times to Europe, Southeast Asia and South Asia including India and Pakistan.
I believe in the great potential that new immigrants bring to this country and am a strong supporter of immigration reform that will benefit immigrants. As a son of a Pakistani immigrant, I understand the difficulties new immigrants face when trying to gain entry into the United States and to keep families together. I will work hard to reunite families and protect those facing removal. As a human rights advocate, I am aware of the suffering that some immigrants have faced in their home countries. I will fight for those who were persecuted because of their beliefs or social identity, so that they may live life genuinely and free from harm.
As a solo practitioner, I am able to treat each client as if he or she were my only one. This means that I do the work on your case; it is not passed on to a legal secretary. You will know who you are dealing with at all times and that you are getting the expertise and consistent level of service you deserve from a licensed attorney. I practice immigration law exclusively. This means that I have the time to devote to the one area of law that matters to you and gain an expertise that cannot as easily be gained by those attorneys who work in several different areas of the law.
As a solo practitioner, I have less overhead than a larger firm. Thus, I am able to keep fees reasonable and provide quality service. I am not a discount lawyer; my fees are reasonable and market-based. Fees are set at a flat rate depending on the type of case rather than an hourly rate. This means that you will know what you owe at the beginning rather than being surprised with a big bill at the end of the process. I will work with you on monthly payment plans if necessary. I understand that some families struggle economically, to help, I provide a fee reduction for those clients whose income prevents them from obtaining services.
I will to work diligently and zealously in seeking your immigration benefit or relief and stay in constant communication at every step of the process.
