International student work authorization experience with immigration attorney Lalita Haran.
Being an international student, I recently reached out Lalita for her expert opinion for work authorization. She exhibited highly respectful and professional and demeanour while interacting with me. I am confident to rely upon her opinion for my queries. While concluding with her consultation session, she gave me a free extremely important advice after assessing my situation. I highly recommend international students to reach out to her for obtaining outstanding and reliable consult services.

Green card application
I needed advice on maintaining Canadian TN visa and processing greencard through marriage. Lalita Haran was able to offer good advice that worked. I found her to be very knowledgeable on immigration law. At the same time she was very approachable and prompt in her service. I am happy to say that with her counsel my daughter got her Green Card sometime back. The whole process only took 6 months from the date of application. Based on our experience, I have no hesitation in recommending Ms Haran to anyone who is in need of an immigration lawyer. I take this opportunity to wish her the very best in her career aspirations.

Review of Lalita Haran as Immigration Attorney
I was her client. She is very dependable and competent. One of her strengths was that she could accommodate me after office hours whenever there was a need.

Excellent, client friendly lawyer
I contacted attorney Haran for VISA for my father, which was rejected and we did not know as to how to proceed. VISA was denied to him earlier for overstay. Desperate to get VISA we decided to go through attorney and myself and my husband also applied for VISA. She prepared our papers well and advised us for the interview. My father who found previous interview very difficult had given up hope and was not ready to apply for VISA, this time, handled the interview with confidence and ease. The same was the case with us. The officer who had doubts about my father's case in the beginning was convinced with the answers and awarded priority VISA and wished us all good luck.

Response from Lalita Haran December 3, 2014
Your good experience at my office is great to hear! Thank you for sharing! Your comment speaks that even with prior denials we can work successfully in getting a subsequent visa approved.

E2 application experience
Lalita Haran is a very confident lawyer. She told us: We don't need to be waiver. If I'm not sure I won't take your case. After that, the Immigration Bureau asked us to resubmit the certificate of waiver. She said that it was definitely an official issue, she also charged another fee. In the end, it was her misinterpretation of the regulations. We spent a lot of money but had to return home immediately. We also said that we can bring the data back to the country and apply again. However, the information actually needed is completely different. We did not obtain a visa for it. We did not get anything but only pay.
