I highly recommend Shilpa Malik to any person (client or fellow attorney) with an immigration law issue. Shilpa assisted me with a challenging immigration law matter, including a discretionary issue that could have gone either way, depending upon how it was handled. She resolved the matter successfully and showed great mastery of the relevant laws and issues, including the ones that weren't apparent from the face of the regulations, but require deep hands on experience to understand. In addition to this, she treated me at all times the way a client or colleague would wanted to be treated. She responded promptly to questions, communicated any limitations on her schedule effectively, and was well-prepared for conference calls.
