H1B Visa
My experience working with Taghavi Immigration Law was beyond a sigh of relief. I remember how hopeless my case seemed at one point; I did not have a clear path forward, and my employer’s attempt to secure a H1B visa was coming to an impasse. We had reached out to immigration as well as corporate lawyers for a solution, and none of those options panned out. It was not until my first meeting with Taghavi Immigration Law, mainly the principal attorney, Soulmaz Taghavi, that things became more optimistic. They immediately saw a clear path forward, and they knew exactly what to do and how to approach my case. I am a Christian, so I attribute this moment to the mighty grace and power of our savior Jesus Christ! Following our first meeting with the principal Attorney, Soulmaz Taghavi, things started to fall into place, and before we knew it, my H1B was approved against all odds. I am so grateful for their work, and above all, their genuine determination to help me fight for my future and my American dream!

Outstanding!
Soulmaz was an invaluable help to me in getting my I751 Green Card petition organized. I highly recommend her firm. She was so quick to respond to any questions and was such a nice person to boot. Soulmaz was also able to cut the time it took me to complete the forms, and she saved me countless hours had I tried to do it all by myself. 100% recommend. Thanks!
