Fiance visa
My fiance and I hired Riddhi for our fiance visa application in Tirana's US embassy. Our case was challenging and had a few obstacles on the way but our lawyer handled them quickly and efficiently. She provided all the necessary information and was very helpful with documents gathering. We would happily work with her again and would highly recommend her.

Riddhi is an excellent lawyer
Riddhi helped with my green card application. She made the process so simple and stress free. Even the Green Card interview was so smooth because of how thorough the application packet was prepared by Riddhi and her team. She was also always available whenever my wife and I had questions. I highly recommend her if your are going through the US Green Card application process.

Best Immigration Lawyer in Chicago!
We highly recommend Riddhi Jani. Since the first time we met her she has been deeply involved with our case: I-130, I-131, I-485 and I-765. She greatly guided us on how to gather all the different evidence we needed to get together, she was on top of everything all the time. Dealing with Immigration matters can be very stressful and time consuming but having Riddhi with us made this journey almost enjoyable. Besides her great knowledge of her work and being able to answer all of our questions, the best quality of Riddhi is her kindness. We had dealt with several Immigration Lawyers before we met Riddhi, and never we met someone as genuine as her. We almost never had the impression to be working with a Lawyer but more with a friend, someone that treats you like a human being and not just a client among many others. Unlike other Lawyers we worked with, Riddhi was motivated to make us win our case and not trying to see how much money she can make out of it. Also, we would like to make it clear that even if Riddhi is the nicest Lawyer you can be lucky to work with, when needed she can also be strong and strict to take her clients defense, like an iron fist in a velvet glove. We are so thankful to have met ready and have her work for us, we could have never imagine how well and smoothly our immigration matter would have been if it was not for Riddhi to be representing us.

Amazing attention to detail, extremely professional!
I worked with Riddhi on setting up my design consultancy business, and was absolutely blown away by her level of professionalism and attention to detail. Whenever I had any questions Riddhi's explanations cut through the jargon and got straight to the point. She clearly laid out what I had to do on my end and entirely took care of everything else. I would recommend Riddhi Jani to anyone!

Caring and trustworthy Lawyer
We went to Riddhi with our complex immigration matters at the recommendation of a family friend. When we told Riddhi our situation, she was both moved and extremely sincere, which was something we weren't used to as we have only dealt with money motivated insincere lawyers. She knew exactly how and what needed to be done and always provided clear and concise instructions. This was really helpful because legal jargon is very confusing and intimidating. Riddhi made that portion of legal work so effortlessly easy for us. I don't ever remember being overwhelmed with information since she made it so simple for us. Another thing that I loved about Riddhi was her polite manners. She always made us feel very comfortable at her office and offered coffee, tea, etc. The only thing I can say which may seem like critique is that she is most easily accessible through email because she isn't always available on the phone. However, this is probably due to her busy nature. All lawyers are pricey, however, Riddhi is flexible and willing to work with your situation. I would highly recommend not to cheap out because of money. We went to many lawyers because of financial restraints who just did not care or deliver. I cannot tell you enough from my experiences the importance of a caring and emotionally invested lawyer. There are many lawyers you can find who will do their job for the money, however there are the gems that go to work everyday because they love what they do and have passion for their work. Riddhi Jani is that lawyer! I absolutely recommend her. And yes, we won our case!

Extremely Competent Law Firm - Very Satisfied
Fast, professional, very competitive. Jani Law Group navigated complex health care and immigration regulations to allow our Clinic to secure a sought-after neurologist under the J-1 Conrad program. We will continue using the excellent services of this law firm for all our future immigration needs. Highly recommend.

Throrough Professional
Riddhi worked on my case at Azulay Seiden Law Group and has miraculously, helped me come back from a seemingly hopeless situation to being, well on my way to receiving PR. She has been my point of contact at the Azulay Siden Law Group and for all you Desi's (Ind-pak-Bang-Nepalis) out there she is the person you may wanna know. She is considerate, patient and takes time to navigate you through the bureaucratic labyrinth explaining each and every nuances on the way. I highly, recommend her and Azulay for any of your immigration related needs.
