Above and beyond
Mr Zaveri, went above and beyond to help my case. He did things he wasn’t even required to do, but because I asked he made it happen. I had a very tough case and I was very happy with the results.

The Best Lawyer For Your Immigration Case
You will not find too many law firms where the attorney will personally address your problems and concerns. Mr. Zaveri was extremely professional, knowledgable and caring. You can tell he is very passionate for his profession and takes pride in what he is doing. Mr. Zaveri handled my mother’s case in extremely organized and efficient manner. Regarding the fee: MINIMAL for the work and execution by Zaveri Law Firm. I will definitely refer to Zaveri Law Firm for additional legal services in the future.

Great experience!!!
This was a wonderful experience from beginning to end. Mr. Zaveri took the time to not only introduce himself in detail, he spent time making us feel comfortable in the decisions we were making, as well as confident in all areas of our application. He is extremely knowledgeable and went above and beyond to ensure we were prepared. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and I would most definitely recommend to all that are inquiring about immigration.

EXCELLENT
I'm very happy with my experience with Mr Prerak Zaveri and his staff helped me through every step of my green card application. They sat down with me and my wife and really took the time to explain exactly what we needed for our entire process and interview. We couldn't be more happy with our experience. Mr. Zaveri and his team were available to answer any of our questions and had excellent communication with us during what could have been a stressful experience. We really feel that we were treated like family. If you are looking for someone with great knowledge and experience he is one person I will highly recommend.

Green Card PR
I was presented this RFE - Request for evidence letter from USCIS to make a decision on my immigration. I had of only 2 months to provide valid proof to support my cause. I found Mr. Zaveri through an extensive google search based on reviews online and AVVO helped me reach to a decision about hiring Prerak. Mr. Zaveri was extremely patient and answered all relevant questions. He was so courteous, informative and convincing. He listed down the steps that he would take to represent my case to USCIS. Everything was outlined in extreme detail that left no option for any hiccups!. He really cares for his clients not just for a case or fee,but he actually connects to them and try to understand the emotions that any person would go through at the verge of immigration/deportation. He certainly is very intelligent and his dedication to just immigration laws makes his a Pro in his field! I highly recommend everyone seeking help with immigration to go with Mr. Prerak Zaveri. Trust me, I don't trust anyone easily, neither I take haste decisions when it comes to anything. I did a thorough research then literally interviewed and crosses checked Prerak online and in my head with negative & positive queries and comparison, then choose him as my attorney. He is an excellent lawyer, great human being, who is not just a "Lawyer -Lawyer"in words but is one who has a heart as well! He will relate to your problems and situations,he empathizes, he's polite, respectful and sensitive yet at the same time, Prerak is super knowledgeable and experienced to handle immigration case based on your facts and theories. I guarantee , going by my own success with him that he is THE RIGHT CHOICE when to comes to an immigration lawyer!! I received my 10 Years GC already and there is no doubt that we are already working on following the road to Citizenship. This whole process of submitting my response and getting a reply from USCIS took only a Month and we had 2 months prior to that for collecting our docs & evidence. Look no where, if you want results for the money you spend and for the emotional trial you face due to immigration, it's worth putting your money on an outstanding lawyer as Mr. Prerak Zaveri!!

Very Helpful!
I had reached out Prerak Zaveri to get a second opinion on docs my employer's lawyer had prepared for an RFE received on my I140. Prerak was quick to respond, and willing to help even though he only was coming in in the middle of it all (with no background on my case). He was able to thoroughly review the RFE & the docs prepared, and was able to give me positive feedback/suggestions which would help make a better case. I'm glad we reached out to Prerak. His input was not only reassuring that we were going in the right direction, but also very helpful in making my case stronger for USCIS. Money well spent!

Conditional Residency Consultation
I consulted with Prerak about my conditional green card renewal and questioned him about my immigration status as my petitioning US spouse recently passed away. Prerak was helpful and had a friendly and upfront manner. What he said was what you got, and no surprises. I appreciated his seasoned advice and how he sought to answer my many questions without pressing me to use his services. I would recommend him to others in need of an immigration lawyer.

Great experience in a phone consultation
I took a phone consultation with Prerak Zaveri couple of times. Both the times, he gave satisfactory answers and completely met my expectations. Infact, one time, when the answers were not readily available, he went beyond the phone consultation time slot and got back to me with answers after 2 days. I recommend Prerak for your immigration-related problems. He is knowledgeable and approachable.

Immigration expert
I usually do not write reviews, but the services I got here were phenomenal and it wouldn't be fair If I don't express myself to other people. Mr zaveri is definitely very knowledgeable in this field. I was very confident about my case but my wife was always worried about it, but every time we talked to Prerak he really gave her confidence and he was there for our interview covering us too. He is very friendly person and never intimidates you which is always the problem with many lawyers. He would always be there to answer each and every questions you have even of they are repeated or stupid he never says no. The fees he charged were also very reasonable compared to other lawyers in the area. Overall I strongly suggest you go with he does also know a lot of people including the supervisors in Newark office which would help make you're life very easy.

Grateful for his Guidance and Wisdom during this Lengthy Process
My wife and I were so blessed that we were divinely directed to hire Prerak Zaveri to help us with my immigration process. We consider him not just a lawyer, but a trusted friend. He is a consummate professional and handled our case with great care, making sure that all was in perfect order before any submissions were made. It is a special combination to be both an astute lawyer and someone who also cares about his clients and their success. Prerak celebrated each milestone with us as he was already looking forward to guiding us carefully through the next part of the process. He knows the immigration laws thoroughly and researches well whatever new circumstances arise. He is a man of integrity and we have been so grateful for his wisdom and guidance on this lengthy journey. We also admire his integrity and consummate knowledge of immigration law, practices and procedures. As a result of our work with Prerak, I have moved successfully through each phase of this legal process and am now a permanent resident of the United States. We highly recommend Prerak for working with clients who have issues related to immigration.
