About me

 


Naresh M. Gehi is the Principal Attorney at Gehi & Associates, Attorneys and Counsellors at Law, with two offices serving the state of New York.


Mr. Gehi has more than 15 years’ experience as an attorney and has assisted thousands of clients in resolving complex immigration matters. Mr. Gehi is licensed to practice law in the state of New York, Eastern and Southern Districts of the State of New York and in the State of Connecticut. Also, Mr. Gehi is admitted to the Court of Appeals in New York.


Mr. Gehi holds a Master of Laws degree from the University of Georgia and was employed by the former administrative judge, Jeffrey M. Gottlieb, Esq., for approximately six years. During his employment with Mr. Gottlieb, Mr. Gehi assisted the firm in handling complicated immigration cases, ranging from family-based immigration to deportations, to employment-based immigration matters, etc. 


Maintaining an active trial practice, Mr. Gehi specializes in dealing with incredibly complex immigration cases. Former State and former Assistant District Attorneys, and many private attorneys have referred challenging immigration cases to his firm, due to his reputation in this area. It is not uncommon for clients to transfer their cases to Gehi and Associates, particularly when the case involves complex immigration issues.


Mr. Gehi’s landmark case involved a client whose name and birth date matched that of a suspected terrorist. The case ultimately required dealing with the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Immigration Court. After litigating the case for nearly three years, the client successfully obtained his green card. This is but one of many examples of the types of cases successfully handled by his firm.


Besides being an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), Mr. Gehi has also been a speaker at the New York Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association. Additionally, Mr. Gehi was selected to serve on the Federal Practice Committee of AILA. As well, he regularly participates in interactive viewer sessions about immigration matters on numerous television programs in New York. 


Mr Gehi has been a speaker at the prestigious National Press Club in Washington, DC and has testified in the New York State Senate on immigration matters.


He is frequently cited and quoted on immigration issues by news outlets, such as ABC News, Reuters, CNN, Channel 11 NY, Daily News, New York Post and Law360.com. Mr. Gehi’s articles on immigration issues regularly appear in various newspapers in New York. Mr. Gehi has also served on the “Ask the Experts” panel for immigration matters at the New York Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association.


Mr. Gehi frequently provides immigration advice to major corporations and individuals who seek to resolve their immigration matters.


The website of Gehi & Associates, www.immigrationquestion.com, regularly updates visitors regarding the latest news in immigration and provides comprehensive information regarding the practice areas of his law firm.
