    Ruchi Thaker has serious passion and drive for her work in the immigration field. She is known in the field for taking on difficult and sometimes hopeless cases. She has an uncanny ability to come up with solutions where there are not any at first glance. She is able to do this given her long term experience in the field and having handled hundreds of matters. She also has a depth of legal knowledge honed after having done many federal appeals and cases. When representing clients in court or other proceedings, one could not have a better advocate. She is trustworthy, intelligent, and just a superb lawyer.
