Very competent, honest and trustworthy lawyer. I have been with her since 2009 with the immigration case and she has done a wonderful job. My case was terminated in 2010 and i was given a relief. The good thing with Patnaik is that she just does not collect your money but she tells you the naked truth. I will try your case but.... or i will not promise you about your case so i will not because of .......

Sonali is a winner. She lets you know what is going on in as much detail as you want. Your case is treated as if it is of the upmost importance. Sonali is a professional who works hard. But Sonali is quite human, friendly, and she is always cheerful. Sonali had a healthy flexibility when dealing with me and the case. Out of the 20 to 30 emails I sent to her, she replied to each one the next day. She is far superior to any lawyer I had previously.

Sonali was very professional and prompt in dealing with my case. I would not hesitate to recommend her to a friend.

Sonali is an excellant lawyer, who pays attention to detail, and explains in multiple languages if needed. She is very professional and she made our immigration process very easy.
