Dakshini knows what she is doing.
I hired Dakshini for my H1B, H1B renewal and Green Card. She has worked with few of my friends as well. You will never go wrong with her. She knows what she is doing.

Excellent Process
Dakshini and her team were excellent throughout my whole immigration experience, i had previously been through 2 other attorneys over a very lengthy period of time with no progress which was not the case with Dakshini. Very efficient and at the end of the whole process we were successful, would highly recommend to anyone.

Caring Sincere and Practical
I used Dakshini's services to file my immigration green card and h1b petitions over the last 13 years (long time) and I can't thank her enough for her care, consideration and sincere advice over these years. Additionally, her fees are reasonable. There were some challenging issues that came up in my case once which she overcame with proficiency. She got the job done! The paralegal assigned to my green card petition was Jose H. who is also excellent and thorough in his work.

H1B & Green card – Great team
I had a great experience working with law offices of Dakshini R Sen on my H1-B and Green card Process. Dakshini accept my cases more than one time and helped me get my H1-B and green card on time. She and her team were responsive throughout the process, and patiently explained all the details during filing for both H1B and Green card. Thank you for helping me get my green card. Your hard work and commitment greatly contributed to this positive outcome.

Excellent Service and Guidance for Immigration Matters
Ms. Dakshini has always helped us with valuable inputs and guidance throughout our immigration journey here in the united states. It has been almost 10 years that I first met Ms. Dakshini and her compassionate approach to clients is remarkable. Her team has a very good understanding of immigration laws and worked with me at every point to provided all needed documentation to USCIS timely. The prices are very affordable and it's always a good feeling that you can get professional advise at affordable rates.

H1B, H4 EAD and Green card
It has been a long journey from the time I graduated to the time we got our green card. Ms. Dakshini and her team helped me and my husband through the process of getting our H1B, extensions on H1B, H4 EAD and the entire process of getting our green card. The team was available every step of the way answering all our questions. Provided guidance when we had questions about downgrading from EB2 to EB3 and interfiling. They are quick and very thorough with the paperwork. Did not get any RFE. Their pricing is very reasonable compared to other law firms that our friends consulting companies use. When we become eligible to apply for adjustment of status (AOS) in December their team made sure they filed all the paperwork before they closed for holidays. I would definitely recommend this law firm to anyone who needs immigration related services

Adjustment Of Status (AOS) Approved - Review
Based on my personal experience with Mrs. Dakshini's firm, the following is my honest review about her service: Mrs. Dakshini assigned my case to Carlos Puac. They both took the time to explain the overall view of the case and also the details of each and everyone of the steps involved in the process. Mrs. Dakshini was promt in responding my questions both via email and telephone. She always had a clear, concise, understandable and honest answer. After my I-140 approval I requested Mrs. Dakshini to take promp action on the next step which was the submission of my Adjustment Of Status (AOS) I-485 application. Mrs. Dakshini and her staff immediately took action and submitted my application to the USCIS within a week. She provided a clear list of documents needed for all the related application submissions. She never altered the provided estimated fees and was honest on the estimated time to get approval. Luckily, my case was approved faster than the estimated processing times. I never received a Request For Evidence (RFE) from the USCIS. This can very well be due to proper applications filing. Overall, I am really happy and greatful for the services her firm has provided for both my firm, my wife and myself. I highly recommend her firm for any immigration case consultation, guidance and full service anyone might need. Thank you.

H1B & Green Card - Excellent Guidance and Services
Ms. Dakshini has been my attorney regarding immigration matters since 2004 - all the way through 2021 when my green card was approved. Her knowledge & research is admirable, and her advice and services have always been practical, timely, and have helped me navigate through every immigration issue with confidence. Would highly recommend Ms. Dakshini - based on 18 years of services provided for H1B, EAD, Permanent Resident applications.

Excellent Guidance and Service
I first contacted Dakshini for my H1B in 2007, and I was very impressed with the quick response, and how quickly the firm submitted my H1B petition with USCIS. Since then Dakshini was our only Immigration attorney and processed our I-140, 6-H1B petitions with 2 employers and finally our I-485. The best thing we liked is, the Firm’s involvement with the process and how well the Firm worked directly with my employers so I did not had to involve a lot, and it was very stress-free. In our 14 years of Immigration journey with Dakshini, she was always very prompt on providing responses and guidance and we never had any issues with any our Petitions. We are very fortunate and greatly thankful to Dakshini and her staff for their service, professional guidance and help. Thank you.

Green Card
I would recommend Mrs Dakshini and her staff to anyone in the country. She did not over do her work and has been very helpful. Before I went to her I have consulted few other lawyers and everyone did not want to handle my case since I was only few days away from the H1 deadline. But guess what Mrs Dakshini was very helpful and sent me all the documents right away. Very professional, very helpful, always answer your questions, follow the deadlines.

H1B Issues Resolved!
Ms Dakshini helped all along the way getting issues related to my H1B resolved. The most important thing that I could say is that she explained the issue very well so that I could unequivocally understand what the problem was and could equally contribute in addressing the issue. Another thing that I could appreciate is that she wouldn't overdo with the documentation; that saves time as well as money. Again, thanks for your professional services.

Reinstatement application for F1 visa
Law firm of Dakshini Sen helped me with reinstatement of my F1 student status. They reviewed my case thoroughly and walked me through the complete application process with USCIS. They filed the form I-539 with the USCIS for my extension of F1 visa. They were very prompt in filing my application with USCIS. I received my reinstatement status from USCIS.

H1B Visa
I would like to thank you and your staff so much for all the hard work in helping me with the H1B process. I know that it could not have happened without you. What was probably the most stressful situation to deal with was made so much easier with all your time, patience and positive attitude. Thanks again for this outstanding work

Excellent Service
I would highly recommend Ms. Renuka Perrera and her team at Law Offices of Dakshini R Sen to everyone without an iota of doubt. My H1B case got RFE this year for specialty occupation and Ms. Renuka Perrera handled case. Her RFE response has very high quality with convincing arguments backed by strong supporting documents and she was very professional and diligent during the process. She answered all the questions from me and was very helpful in the process. My H1B petition has finally been approved and I am very thankful to have Renuka as my attorney. Thank you Renuka .

Highly Recommended!
In 2003, I started my journey with Ms. Dakshini's offices in Houston. I got my H1-B and H4's done through her, after which we moved to Dallas and got my I-140 done through a local attorney. But when it came time to apply for adjustment of status, I went back with Ms. Dakshini despite her being in a different city because I had seen how competent she was. After a long period (over 10 years), my I-485 came back denied, which resulted in a period of great panic and stress. At this time, however, Ms. Dakshini really stepped up to the challenge, even 10 years later. She spent hours digging through our documents and finally determined the mistake that USCIS had made in denying our application. She contacted our USCIS officer promptly and clarified some things with him, then accompanied us to a USCIS interview and explained to the officer exactly what had gone wrong and why our case should not have been rejected. This at last helped our case become re-opened and got us our permanent residence cards soon after. Throughout this entire process, Ms. Dakshini and her team (particularly Ms. Jina and Mr. Carlos) were extremely responsive, patient, and competent. They answered all our questions and were always available, even during the Houston floods when they were moving offices. It was great to see that even after over ten years of starting our case, Ms. Dakshini was just as invested in the case and familiar with its details, and went out of her way when we needed her the most. Ms. Dakshini and her team are very honest, hardworking, and dependable; I would highly recommend her for anyone needing an immigration attorney.
