Great Job
Attorney Rupal did a really good job for my permanent resident application for me and my wife. She prepared my application very well. She reviewed everything with me and took time. She always answered all the questions I had and replies very fast. Thank you very much for doing a great job. I highly recommend her.

Very Professional
Rupal Parikh is one of the top immigration lawyers. She is easy to contact and is always available to answer my queries. She has done a great job in helping me get my Green Card. It was a very long process, but she was always there to support me and legally advise me on each step of my application. Rupal Parikh was truly there for me from the get-go. My case was very difficult, but not only did she solve the problem, but everything in my case was resolved in a quick and efficient manner. Throughout the entire process I was notified of all actions being taken, and no detail was spared. Rupal is very caring and treats her clients like she would treat a lifelong friend. I am retaining her for suture US Naturalization application. While most lawyers are cost savvy, Rupal’s main interest is finding a resolution. Rupal is very professional and has sharp intelligence in giving legal advice. Rupal used every possible tool to help me with my case. I can’t be more thankful and lucky I found Rupal Parikh when I needed her guidance the most. It is because of her legal support I can call my Family from India to USA and start a new life. I strongly recommend Rupal Parikh for your immigration matters.

Highly Recommend!
This is long overdue. I hired Rupal for my Naturalization process and also for my husband's application to register for permanent residence. We are extremely satisfied with her service. She was very helpful and always ready to answer all our doubts and questions. She made sure everything was in order prior to submitting the forms and applications which made it much easier and comfortable for us. Rupal turned out to be an excellent and highly professional lawyer with the right knowledge of current immigration-related issues. We were at ease during our immigration process. It was pleasure working with her and we highly recommend her for any immigration-related cases. Thank you Rupal for all your help and service!

It was amazing working with you
Following my marriage to a US Citizen in 2015, I hired Rupal in October 2016. I needed her to obtain for me a Green Card, after being 17 years under “Withholding of Removal”. Before I met Rupal, I spent a lot of money on consultations with other lawyers in NJ. Despite gladly taking my money, none of them seemed able to gave me a clear view of how I could actually win my case. All these failures with so many lawyers showed me that none of them had any clue about, or any familiarity with the term “Withholding of Removal” or what it really means. I met Rupal by referral (very cozy, and welcoming office). I am so glad that I was given this introduction. Rupal listened to my history and to the analysis of lawyers in California who in 2003 had helped me obtain my legal “Withholding of Removal” status and the big chances to obtain an AOS. She agreed with the strategy, and we started working hard in New Jersey, in the following order: I-130, I-485, RFE, I-601 based on INA § 212(h), Green Card arrived, re-opening and termination of “Withholding of Removal”. Working with Rupal was an amazing experience. She was not just a lawyer, but was a good friend genuinely concerned about my case. It was never easy, but thanks to Rupal making sure that every detail was handled with perfection, USCIS was finally satisfied with the many issues involved in my particular case. Finally, as result of Rupal’s good offices, my case was won in June 2019. She was aware that my circumstances were unique and unusual, and consequently clearly took the extra time and trouble to meet me on many occasions to ensure that all the forms and documentation were perfectly completed so to cover all possible angles. Thank you Rupal. God Bless you. I will be grateful to you forever for such a happy outcome to such a very significant event in my life.

Excellent Lawyer
Rupal turned out to be an excellent and highly professional lawyer with the right knowledge and also an extensive current knowledge of current immigration-related issues. We contacted her through a friend and found her humble, helpful and with a positive attitude. She helped us changed my son's F-2 status to F-1 within a short period of 4 weeks which is incredible in the current political environment. She never gave us any wrong hopes yet never let us lose any anyways. She is not only a great lawyer but also a very nice person. I will definitely approach her for any future endeavors related to immigration or change of status. I strongly recommend Rupal for any immigration-related cases!

Rupal Aristimuno is the best around
I moved to the US in September 2017 and, thanks to Rupal Aristimuno, I am now settled here with my family (US citizens) and a green card. I first applied for my residency visa on my own, but the application was roundly rejected so I looked for a local attorney. I turned to Rupal, who was simply wonderful throughout. I had never paid for attorney for anything before and was deeply suspicious of the whole process and of anyone who commanded the hourly rate of a lawyer. However, Rupal was disarmingly calm, friendly, and put me instantly and repeatedly at my ease, maintaining at all times a cool, competent, comprehensive professionalism that gave me utter confidence in her work. The trust she elicited from me was never once misplaced. Rupal guided me ably through the opaque language and partial explanations of the Department of Homeland Security website, and steered me and my family through the different-colored notification letters of a high-stakes and otherwise-stressful process. Rupal managed my expectations regarding timelines and outcomes from DHS with aplomb. I am glad I paid Rupal for her services and could not recommend her more highly. Her receptionist even has an English accent (which, as a Brit, made me feel all the more at home). My feelings about the service provided by Rupal Aristimuno are perhaps best summarized in this haiku: You need a visa? Rupal Aristimuno Is the best around Dr. Gareth, 4.5.19

Greatest Immigration Attorney
Our family can't put into words our gratitude for Atty. Parikh's help in preparation for our 2nd interview for my Adjustment of Status (AoS). She felt the sense of urgency and she helped us right away although it was a short notice. She's genuinely helpful, knowledgeable and compassionate. She made us feel as if we are her family members and not merely clients. We are beyond satisfied with the outcome and we highly recommend her service. More power Attorney and we pray that you thrive on your endeavours!

Excellent Immigration Lawyer
My quest for an immigration lawyer to obtain adjustment of status/green card began in early November 2017. It's the reviews that helped make an appointment for consultation with Rupal Aristimuno. After the consult I was absolutely convinced that this would be my lawyer. Very knowledgeable, educated, well spoken and pleasant. We filed the documents December and exactly as she indicated had taken place. Each step of her correspondence would always give the response like she stated. During the process, her response to phone calls and emails has been exceptional !! Always eager to assist. On the interview date for my girls and myself , we were accompanied by Rupal who made me feel relaxed and relieved of my anxiety. Exceptional service at the interview and throughout the entire process. My girls and myself were successful and obtained our green card in 9 months, just like she said. I Definelty made the correct decision in hiring Rupal Aristimuno, an amazing woman, great lawyer. My heartfelt thank you for a job well done. Highly recommended!!

Perfect Lawyer
My company had applied for my H-1B Work visa through her in 2018. After my case was picked up, we got an RFE (Request for Evidence) since I was hired right out of college and USCIS needed more proof. She told my boss exactly what we need in order to justify my case and a month later my RFE was resolved. Thanks to her, I can now go to India and get my H-1B stamped.

Excellent!
We met with Rupal in 2018 on an immigration matter. She was very patient, detailed, honest and professional throughout. She gave us several options and worked with us to narrow down to one (the best option) to take. Sadly we left NJ to another state so we couldn’t complete the journey with her but that one meeting and Subsequent phone calls and emails communication with her was our solid guide throughout the process. We got our approval last week!!! She’s great!!! Not kidding at all. My wife and I are so proud of her work and would recommend Big Time!!!

Great experience
I needed to change my status from work visa to permanent residency and I knew I needed a strong case and a great lawyer. I picked Rupal based on a referral coming from an other lawyer. She explained all I needed to do and collect, we filed and went together to the interview. Everything happened exactly as she predicted and since my case was strongly put together, I obtained green card. Great attorney. Agnes

Best service ever!
Rupal was hands down the BEST decision we made. She was with us every step of the way, patiently answered all of our questions, knew her stuff, and was extremely responsive. Not only does she love what she does but she cares for other people's situations as well. She's become more than our lawyer and is instead considered a friend. You will never regret having Rupal represent you!
