Great Immigration attorney
Immigration Attorney, Kiran Nair’s is very professional attorney in how she helped us in our immigration case. She was thorough in explaining a very complicated process step-by-step and answered all questions regarding our immigration case, about 9 years ago I met her in her Newport Beach and hired her as my immigration attorney due to my removing proceeding in immigration court, since I had a very complicated immigration matter. I am so glad that I hired Immigration attorney, Kiran Nair who successfully fought hard on my case and convinced immigration authorities to grant my relief, get reinstatement of permanent resident, now I am on the way to apply the citizenship through her help, I highly recommend Ms. Nair to all my friends and family in need of an excellent and dedicated immigration attorney.

Greencard through VAWA
Ms. Nair is a great person. She helped me with my case. She devoted much time to my case. I had a difficult matter which required self-petitioning given my particular circumstances. She helped me obtain the petition and thereafter green-card. I strongly recommend Ms. Nair to anyone in need of a dedicated attorney.

Terminated Deportation Order
Kiran Niar was with me step by step and during all the court proceedings. Before I retained her, the Immigration Judge had ordered me deported for alleging that I was smuggling aliens into the US. I was detained and was representing myself. Although, I adamantly denied alien smuggling, the judge based on government's limited documentary so called evidence ordered me removed. After I was released from custody, I retained Ms. Nair. She argued against the deportation and charge of alien smuggling. She vehemently argued in court opposing removal order saying that it was in violation of my fundamental rights. After several court hearings, the government dismissed removal proceedings based on Ms. Nair's arguments. I was no longer facing deportation, and was reinstated to green-card status, all thanks to Ms. Nair fighting for me. I would strongly recommend Ms. Nair to anyone facing removal or having other issues with the U.S. Immigration system.

Response from Kiran Nair May 24, 2016
This was a complicated matter, and took several court hearings for a favorable disposition. Before my representation, the Judge had terminated legal resident status, and ordered client deported. Although, gov't attorney/DHS counsel argued that I was too late, or improperly requesting rehearing on termination of legal status, DHS eventually agreed to dismiss removal charges of smuggling an alien after realization that matter on appeal would likely show Due Process Violation of client's rights. Needless to say client was ecstatic with final disposition on his case of reinstating his legal status.

Inmigration Matters.
Miss Kiran Nair Performed an Outstanding representation on my case, I was on Removal proceedings back to my native country for my reckless and immature conduct towards my ex spouse, finally after an extenuated process on my case, we prevailed and was granted the request for Removal proceedings dismissal, I feel very proud to say that I made a great choice on having Miss Kiran Nair handle my case. I can assure that I will be honored to hire miss Nair to start my citizenship proceedings asap.

Highly recommend
Kiran helped me obtain my citizenship and I am very grateful. She is very intelligent and a great representative to have on your side while going through the immigration process. She made the process understandable, and always gave me confidence from our initial meeting through the interview. Even after the interview and naturalization process I was able to contact her with questions and she was always reassuring and informative. I highly recommend her legal services and a special thanks to her assistant, Susana, who also helped greatly with all of the paperwork and process.

Knowledgeable, Sincere & Great Service
I was looking for an immigration attorney while I was experiencing a very hard time in my life. During a free consultation with Attorney Kiran Kutty Nair, I realized that I still could have hoped to get rid of this hardship and I felt a confidence right away. My case was a marriage waiver I-751 to remove the condition on my permanent resident status. After stating my story and showing her my documents, Kiran instantly told me that I have enough strong evidence, therefore, I would definitely be able to earn my green card. Kiran not only provided me an excellent service, but also she represented me strongly in my interview. She is not only a knowledgeable and experienced attorney, but she is also an amazing human being who can feel your emotions. The time and effort that she put in my case was something beyond my expectation. Eventually, I got my condition of residency removed. I am so grateful for her professional treatment and service that she provided me. I would like to gladly take this opportunity to refer Kiran Kutty Nair as a professional, knowledgeable, honest, and most importantly sincere attorney who always will be there for you when you need her. Thank you so much!

Not finding a good lawyer is as worst as the crime committed. Kiran has proven to be a good lawyer when i hired her for my immigration issues. despite everything seems complicated and confusing Kiran was there to see me through all of it. a lawyer that looks up to your success and be there for you all through the process. My interview was in October 2015 and everything went smoothly all with her paper works. most of all she talks to me like a mother, you're the best, i wont have any fear or regret to refer Kian Nair to you that is reading my review and those that yet to read, that once you are with Kiran, you should be rest assured. Thank you once again KIRAN NAIR!!!

Resourceful & friendly
My experience with Kiran Nair was warm and professional. I first met with her for a free consulation on my legalizagion. I asked multiple questions and after receiving upfront and really informative answers, I knew I needed to go with her. During the paperwork process Kiran and her associates were always in touch with me to answer questions or address concerns, giving me an answer right way or calling me back in a timely manner. They were great at keeping me updated on the process and walking me through the steps I needed to follow. Everything went smoothly because they were on point in their research and submission of my forms and paperwork. I wasn't the only one who was impressed. When my residency was approved, the person in charge commented on how admirable Kiran's resourcefulness was and how complete my paperwork was. I will always be grateful to Kiran and her firm. And when it it is time to tackle my citizenship I know I will be enlisting their warm, friendly, professional, resourceful services again.

Intelligent and Professional
Kiran was a great help to me in a citizenship application. In particular, my situation fell within a very narrow scope of both the criminal and immigration law and required some explaining of the law to the officers at USCIS. She was able to make them understand that I was not convicte and hence was eligible for naturalization. The entire paperwork process was handled by her, and we got it done efficiently thanks to her.

In the pursuit of perfection
An exceptional attorney. Just completed two most difficult tasks: first she moved the court to vacate a record, which nowadays is far from easy, by writing a brilliant motion; then she wrote another exceptional motion, a brilliant piece of logic and expertise which could be taken as a model for all aspiring and less inspired lawyers, which was granted under...exceptional circumstances! In fact, her 2 accomplishments are the only ones in a long string of denials from various courts... The person who recommended her to me was spot on: she is truly exceptional!

Kiran Nair, Very Professional and Passionate about her work; Extremely Competent and Diligent; She is Very Approachable and Easy to Talk with. Kiran Nair is not only Educated in her field, she is Knowledgeable and keeps herself Well-Informed on one's case and any current situations that may apply or not in one's case. She is Very Responsible, Reliable, Sensitive and Respectful towards one's situation; She is Trustworthy, she has always been truthful and honest at all times with me. I really do respect Kiran Nair. I am very thankful and very appreciative of all the hard work she did on my case. SHE IS THE BEST IMMIGRATION LAWYER! Kiran Nair handled my Immigration Case successfully, and for that, I received my Green Card. Nine years ago, as an Asylee, I filed for a change of Status to obtain my Green Card. Unfortunately, I did not receive my Green Card; instead, the Asylum case was re-opened in Court more than four years after filing for the change of status from Asylee to Resident Status. The nightmare I thought was over after obtaining my Asylum, apparently was re-awakened. It was back to square one. Before my Asylum was granted by a Judge more than a decade ago, I had gone through multiple Immigration Lawyers. So, when it was re-opened over 4 years ago, I was not sure how I would be able to find a Trustworthy, Knowledgeable, Responsible, Reliable Lawyer who is at the top of their game and is willing to put their gloves on and fight for me. Someone I could not only count on, but also intrust my life with and that of my husband and kids. It was a miracle I found Kiran Nair. I would recommend Kiran Nair to my friends and family anytime, anywhere!!!!! My family and I thank you Kiran so much for everything!!!!

Knowledge and Intelligence with Kiran K. Nair
It is my pleasure to provide a review for the attorney Ms. Kiran Kutty Nair. Back in in 2012, my son was facing an impossible case with immigration, after searching three different attorneys, and having negative responses. I couldn't let go my faith that there was someone there who could help the case. I Found Kiran Nair, who was able to hear and study my son's case and give me the confidence I needed. It wasn't an easy case, and Kiran's strong personality and ability to know what she was doing, long hours of searching and finding ways to fight and win the case, and prevent the deportation. I still remember each time we will have to go to court, she will express to me "think positive, don't give up on me" and believe it or not, those words were the key for success and no matter what each time, we had one step ahead of victory. "When you renew your mind transformation happens" right? and that is how I did believe and trust in my attorney Kiran Nair. Thanks for all her efforts and long hours of searching, studying the case, the respect, empathy and compassion to her clients made a big difference. My son was not deported and even after two years, I still communicate with Kiran, she is there for you, and at any time I would provide excellent professional reference for the attorney KIRAN KUTTY NAIR
