I hired Ruchi to help with my brother's immigration case. My brother was detained by ICE and was in removal proceedings. What I loved about Ruchi was that she was knowledgeable, accessible, prepared, and experienced. And above all, she is an honest and genuine person. She does all the work herself so she knows the case intimately. There is no assistant that will filter your calls and push you off to call back later. We could ask Ruchi about any section of the immigration law because she practically had the textbook memorized. On our court date, the judge threw an unexpected surprise. It was because of the depth of the documentation that Ruchi prepared, her professional demeanor in front of the judge, and her capacity to directly apply textbook law to our case in the heat of the moment that won us the case! It is without a doubt that I would recommend Ruchi!

Two years ago an unexpected crisis put my immigration status at stake. I was under a time crunch when Ms. Thaker agreed take on my difficult case. She worked diligently with me and my family during the holiday time and prepared a solid response. She represented me extremely well and in due time everything was taken care of. However, my ordeal was not over. A year later, I faced another tough situation during the naturalization process. On the day of the interview Ms. Thaker was by my side and stayed confident throughout the questioning. She gave me peace of mind during the time of post-interview scrutiny and thanks to her I am a US Citizen now.
Ms. Thaker is very hard working, knowledgeable and dependable. She helped me turn things around for myself and I am glad that I chose her to represent me. She is simply the best and I highly recommend her services.

To this day, I cannot believe my luck in finding Ruchi to represent me in my case which seemed to be a " dead end" case. My first encounter with Ruchi was immediately after having my case denied. Had my share(2) of immigration attorneys here in Manhattan. Ruchi reopened my case I-130
My overall experience with Ruchi cannot be overstated. Not only was she genuinely interested in my case, I like the fact that she's a very hands on attorney . She stayed on top of every process and updated me every at every stage, thereby reducing my anxiety . I was able to worry less knowing that my case was entrusted with her. It also didn't hurt to have an attorney with a hearty disposition.I picked up my Greencard today and it was bitter sweet for me, in the sense that I'm really going to miss being in the capable hands of a very competent attorney. Ruchi will fight for you the best way she can. If you need help with your case, one name-Ruchi!

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.
