Consistently Dependable Guidance and Reliable Support
Ms Anita Gurnani & her assistant Ms Lucia Antonia & other associates have been helpful and supportive from the very beginning of my enquiry for insuring that I was following all applicable rules & regulations for my petition for sponsoring my spouse. Their estimate of turn around time from the date of submitting my petition until receiving the immigrant visa stamped in my wife's passport was fairly accurate. Even if the petitioner is fully qualified as a US Citizen to sponsor an immediate family member, there can be unforeseen roadblocks associated with documentation, etc. I found Gurnani & Gurnani to be well prepared to advise on how to address such issues. All in all, if a petitioner is wanting to have a smooth experience and is desirous of a satisfactory outcome, I have no reservations in recommending Gurnani & Gurnani for all needs associated with US Immigration.

Excellent Service
Mrs. Anita Gurnani is a highly knowledgeable, trustworthy, well organized and excellent immigration attorney, her commitments towards her clients are highly appreciable. She is very detail oriented, and thoroughly reviews the paperwork prior to filing. Mrs. Gurnani and her staff including Lucia and Salwa are easily approachable, they are efficient and promptly reply to all our email/telephone queries. They explain the entire process thoroughly in detail. In the past few years, Mrs. Anita Gurnani has helped me initially, through my green card application process, and recently with my US naturalization. The overall process for both, my green card as well as naturalization had gone very smoothly throughout. I recommended my relatives for their Green Card application process, which also went smoothly. I am overall very happy with her services and will strongly recommend the Law Firm of Gurnani & Gurnani to those who are seeking immigration services.

Immediate Relative Immigration
My experience with Mrs. Gurnani and her team was excellent! They assisted with my mom's I-130 petition and I-485 application. Not only did they provide professional immigration services but also answered all my inquiries along the way. Lucia, one of their paralegals, was extremely friendly and helpful, and always kept me informed about the progress of our application. Thank you all for making my mom's green card's application process so smooth! A great service you can definitely trust!

The BEST Immigration Lawyer in Entire New Jersey!
Mrs Anita Gurnani is an impeccable person. She helped us throughout our immigration process by meticulously reviewing every little aspect and taking time to go over any questions that we might have. She would call us and deep dive over individual documents/questionaries/forms, etc.; that she would be filling out for us which would help us in achieving our goal. She treated our case like her own, and I can promise you no other lawyer will have such attention to detail, patience and sympathy like she and her team had for us. Her outstanding team (notably Michelle and Lucia) were extremely helpful and guided us all along the way. Michelle did a fantastic job in documenting the forms and her timely communication were crucial at every step. Mrs Anita Gurnani, helped us reach our immigration journey in record time. Her team made sure we receive all updates in real time and kept us posted on every movement. Mrs Anita Gurnani is a woman of candor and steadfast focused personnel. I 100% recommend Gurnani & Gurnani Law Firm to everyone, and I can assure; you will not be disappointed. I look forward in availing their services for the next chapter of our lives with Gurnani & Gurnnai Law firm.

I Strongly recommend Gurnani and Gurnani Law Firm
Ramesh Gurnani Sir is one of best Lawyer I ever heard. My employer was working with Gurnani & Gurnani Law firm for their employment based green card requirement for many years. In 2011 my employer has filed PERM for me. I was eligible to file EB2 but Ramesh sir assured me that whenever my priority date will be current at that time EB3 will be ahead of EB2. I received my Green Card 17-July-2021. At that time Priority date of EB3 was almost 2 years ahead of priority date of EB2. Which Ramesh sir predicted in 2011. My PERM was denied in 2012 due to some misunderstanding from CO related to my home address as in MN and Advertisement for my PERM was done in NJ because my employer's head office was in NJ. Mr. Ramesh Gurnani was very confident that my PERM will get certified . He worked with multiple CO and Judge in Labor/BALCA department between 2012 till 2020. I was able to get my H1B extension during that 8 years. Finally my Labor was certified in Aug-2020. My I-140 was approved in Sep-2020 and I received my Green Card in July-2021. I shared my case with multiple friends and everyone were in agreement that whatever Gurnani & Gurnani law firm did for me no other Law firm would have done for them. I strongly recommend Gurnani and Gurnani Law firm if you are trying to find one of best Lawyer. Thanks, Ketan Patel.

My Immigration Experience with Gurnani and Gurnani
I had an opportunity working with Mrs Anita Gurnani and her office last few years during my Employment based Green card immigration process. I must say she is a wonderful and excellent lawyer to work with and takes care of every little detail for complete documentation and paper work. She made sure, all my queries were fully answered and resolved for complete clarity. Her office staff is extremely prompt in all email communications and always reachable in time of needs. Mrs Gurnani herself takes personal attention to her client's paper work before they are finally submitted to USCIS and her review process is very detailed to make sure we submit the most complete and correct documentation. I will absolutely recommend her office for all your Immigration needs for a through professional documentation process and submissions. Good luck to all prospective clients. Best Regards Nishant.

Excellent support
After talking to a few immigration attorneys last year, we decided to go with Anita Gurnani for our green card processing. We found Anita Gurnani very detailed in studying the case, she and her team spent considerable time preparing our application. The application was reviewed couple times before submitting to USCIS. She was very helpful and professional in helping us during submitting our application and later responding to a RFE. We also want to highlight the service provided by the supporting staffs at Gurnani & Gurnani, they are very approachable and knowledgeable. Overall, we are very happy that we made a right choice for the attorney.
