Exceptional Legal Support for a Complex H1-B Case
I am delighted to share my overwhelmingly positive experience with Shilpa, who provided invaluable legal assistance in handling one of the H1-B case for us. Her expertise, dedication, and unwavering commitment to our case made all the difference. From the very beginning, her office demonstrated a profound understanding of the intricacies surrounding the H1-B visa application. Their meticulous attention to detail and thorough analysis of our situation left us confident that we were in the hands of a true professional. Thank you, Shilpa, for going above and beyond!

One of the best Immigration Attorney Team
Myself and my company really appreciates the hardwork put together by Shilpa, Ashley and the team towards the L1A Functional Manager Visa petition and RFE and approval. The details of managerial role, domain and day to day function was exhaustive to absorb and process to present appropriately to make it detailed and well structured. The team really worked hard towards this and the result is an approved Visa. Myself and my company would definitely recommend Shilpa Malik and her legal services and can say that they can be trusted blindly for their commitments and professional ethics!! Thank You Again.

Shilpa Malik is an amazingly competent, knowledgeable, thorough, experienced and client focused lawyer who is obsessed with the success of her clients. We came to Shilpa after having contacted a previous attorney in October 2017 and he still haven't come back to us. We are relatively small business that needed to expand our business in the US. After a free consultation, Shilpa developed a strategy and continue to provide very effective leadership that eventually led to the achievement of the desired outcome. Her strategic insights and competence came to bear after we receive an RFE from USCIS. She provided very effective and reassuring counseling and further developed an even more comprehensive strategy with very superior execution. Her fees are super affordable and reasonable given the investment we made on the project. We will strongly and positive recommend Shilpa Malik for all your immigration cases!

Excellent - helped me ace green card interview
I had a 30 minute phone consultation with her for a very reasonable price (compared to and such.) She was very professional and had thoroughly reviewed the documents I had sent before the consultation. I had so many doubts related to my case before talking to her but felt very at ease after talking and was well prepped to attend GC interview. She seems reasonable and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for an immigration consultation.

Great Law Firm & Great Lawyer
I used several lawyers and all went wrong until the day I met this Lawyer, she is in my opinion one of the best lawyers you can ever use, she knows exactly what she is doing and she stays on top of your case, since the day we met she did exactly what she planned and we got the Positive Results, we are so happy with their service and I already referred this Law Firm to many people. I think a 5 Stars Rating is not enough for them. Tank you always this is something I will never forget. GREAT JOB. Oscar Jamal

Excellent Service and extremely responsive
I have consulted so many law firm group before I have appointed SGM Law Group for my immigration case but none of other law firm gave me clear explanation on my H1B immigration situation, the way Shilpa Malik explain me my case situation on first consultation with her made me feel like a very important client to her, she explained me all pros and cons of my Immigration situation, she did study my case very well before consultation and that made me feel really overwhelmed. Best part is that communications were in timely & clear with her. Personal attention and handling of my H1B case helped me to maintain my peace of mind. She is really accurate on paperwork. At the end I am glad that my all H1B immigration issue has been resolved with USCIS and I don't have words to say thanks to Shilpa Malik and her Law group. I am very pleased with service I have received from Shilpa Malik ( SGM Law Group), In future if any one needs help to solve immigration issue I will highly recommend this law firm to them.

Seamless Process & Professional Service
My company used Shilpa Malik & her team to successfully obtain an H1B Visa for an employee. They were professional, fast & accessible. They made the entire process stress-free by clearly communicating expectations & deadlines. Compared to other attorneys we have worked with, they were also very affordable - a great value for the quality of service we received. I highly recommend their services, and will be using them again in the near future.

Thank you Shilpa and Steven for all help.
Shilpa and SGM law group have helped me tremendously and more than I can ever thank them for. They take their time to listen to you, they have empathy and compassion. Not to mention that, Shilpa is always straight to the point and very knowledgeable. She made me feel secure along the way, that everything would be fine. I have nothing but good to say about this law firm and would recommend Shilpa and her team to anyone in a heartbeat. Thank you so much for everything, for all that you've done for me. I am and will always be beyond grateful.

Excellent Experience
Working with Ms. Malik has been a pleasure. She is extremely professional and well versed in what she does. I met Shilpa at a time when I had no hope and was on the verge of giving up. Her attention to details coupled with her experience has been invaluable to my case. The outcome was favorable and I owe it all to her. Saying Thank you does not begin to explain the gratitude I feel towards Shilpa and her team.

Long overdue green card approval
I've been in the United States for over 11 years without a green card. Approximately two years ago someone referred me to attorney Malik and I wasn't disappointed one bit. My husband and I hired attorney Malik to handle our case and within four months I got an approval for my green card. After waiting for so many years, I got very discouraged and was really ready to give up. She was very optimistic about getting an approval this time around despite the odds that were against me. A job well done! Thank you attorney Malik for making dreams become a reality.

Great lawyer and team!
I hired attorney Shilpa Malik for applying for my wife's H1B and had a tremendously positive experience. We applied through normal processing and her application was approved. We particularly liked the approach ability aspect from attorney Shilpa and the entire team that helped us throughout the process. Going through the visa process externally for the first time, there were a lot of questions we had in mind and it was super easy for us to approach and get them answered. One of the reasons we decided to move ahead with them was when we were running around to find lawyers and first spoke to Shilpa over phone, she was very consultative and helpful even before an official confirmation or payment. That was the deciding factor as we felt very comfortable proceeding forward. I would definitely recommend them to others

Greencard Lottery Visa
I was selected in the green card lottery in 2015 and contacted Shilpa through her website. I was very quickly contacted back by her, and then attended a free consultation in her office for my case. Her entire firm was very professional and made the whole process of the application very easy, right down to the Immigration interview which Shilpa attended with me. I now have my green card thanks to Shilpa and her team. Thank you.

Excellent and Professional Immigration Attorney and Team
My husband and I hired Ms. Malik to represent us with our immigration (green card) application. From the start, Ms. Malik and her team were thorough, confident, proficient and courteous in all of our dealings with them. Ms. Malik has an impressive knowledge of all immigration requirements and procedures, which was a great advantage for us. The turn around time from application to hearing was 3 months and at our hearing the immigration officer commented that our attorney had made a very impressive submittal on behalf of her clients. We will be forever grateful to Ms. Malik for making such an important matter for us as simple as it could be.

Thru thick and thin
With many bumps along the way Shilpa stood by me and kept me positive thru the long process of getting my green card. There is no way I could have completed this without her assistance. When I had my interview at the embassy the immigration officer even commented how organized my paper work was. Shilpa was by my side every step of the way even though we are at opposite ends of the world. She made me feel like I was a priority and never a hassle. Thank you Steven and Shilpa for your dedication to my case!

I definitely recommend Shilpa Malik for immigration issues. You will be in good hands.

Best immigration lawyer in south Florida
From our initial meeting we found Shilpa to be attentive, professional, knowledgable and courteous. We had talked to other larger immigration law firms, but none gave us the confidence that Shilpa provided. We are so happy we chose to use Shilpa's firm and at the end of the day, with Shilpa's hard work and knowledge, we were successful in obtaining our visa status. We would have no hesitation in recommending Shilpa to anyone who is looking for an outstanding lawyer to assist in immigration issues.

"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."
