About me

I have practiced law for almost 20 years now. I believe in always giving a client more than is expected and in providing excellent legal advice in a friendly, non-judgmental environment. Our team is committed to going the extra mile to ensure our corporate clients are able to operate their businesses with the least disruption by immigration processes, and that our individual clients stay legal and meet their immigration aims. Our fees are fair and affordable, and our staff is courteous, timely and efficient.

 I have personally been consulted on, filed or supervised several thousand immigration petitions.  Out of the cases our office has filed, in some years, we have had approvals of over 99% of the visas. This is one of the highest approval rates for visa and green card filings by a law practice. The reason for our success is that every petition is closely supervised by an experienced immigration attorney. You talk to an attorney who exclusively practices immigration law when you need legal advice, and you can depend on our experience and wisdom to resolve your concerns.


We keep abreast of latest laws to make sure our client-companies meet all regulations so filing visas for their employees is a routine and simple process.  At the same time, we do not hesitate to accept- and WIN- challenging cases that require us to think outside the box. We are respectful of the Agencies as partners in the process, but will  aggressively fight for our clients’ visas when there is need. When our client needs us to stand up for him, we do NOT take no for an answer.

Our team at Immigration Desk really does make immigration easy!


On our website,, we have provided a wealth of free information collected from our archives and from other sources. We hope it helps you navigate the challenging and ever-changing landscape of US Immigration Laws. If we can help make the process easier for you, it would be our pleasure. Please consult with us, by emailing or telephoning 800-688-7892. To have your question answered free of charge, please submit your questions through “Avvo”.


I thank you for your time.  I look forward to working with you.

  • Giacomo Jacques Behar

    I endorse this brilliant legal mind. Attorney Gupta's answers on Avvo are precise, in depth analyses of what are often times complex, multi faceted legal (and emotional) time bombs.. Anu's answers are creative and right on point. If I were still an immigrant and lived in her city, it is attorney Gupta that I would consult with to solve any complex immigration related issues I have..
