Excellent Attorney
He is very quick, friendly, to the point, articulate and very considerate attorney which i didn't see in LA so far. Had wonderful time getting my paperwork and other immigration processes filed through him. I wish him all luck.

Smooth and fast Green Card process for my wife, just got her 10 year green card, fastest processing ever!
Attorney Nikhil Shah just let me know that the long immigration journey for my wife (and I) is done now, he just got approval notice for her I-751 in the mail so my wife should be receiving her 10 year green card in the mail soon. He said it was one of the fastest I-751 processed, even among his clients who have children together. A testament to Nikhil's thoroughness and experience in helping us navigate through an immigration process where many things could go wrong (and delay you for years), for even the most innocent immigrants.

Job Well Done!!!
For me Atty. Nikhil Shah is the best attorney in town!! He was the 3rd attorney who handled my case. He has done an outstanding job for us. We had some serious problems with my previous attorney; he was able to get things done and move the process in the right direction. He was very quick to respond to any questions or concerns that we had, he was very direct and upfront with us, and he is truly and honest person, who actually cares about his clients. My Husband and I were united after almost 2 years of separation. I cannot thank him enough for what he has done. Attorney Nikhil Shah thank you for a job well done!

The Best Lawyer in town!
This guy is a true GENIUS. I am so so thankful to Nikhil Shah for the outstanding work he has done for me and my husband. After having the most terrible time with a previous attorney, and only one phone call to Nikhil, he was straight away on the ball. Setting up meetings, arranging my file. He was very quick at responding to any questions or concerns I had. He is a real person, who knows exactly how to handle USCIS. I cannot thank him enough.

Count on Nikhil
Nikhil stuck with me through my case getting rejected and always provided sound advice. He is flexible, knowledgeable and most importantly a human being who actually cares about his clients. He is also crafty, relentless and patient in dealing with the absolutely mind-numbing bureaucracy that is USCIS.
