    Kalpana and I have known each other since 2011, and have no hesitation in labeling her one of the finest immigration lawyers I know. Kalpana and I are currently co-chairing the South Asian Bar Association (SABA) North America immigration committee with Aarti Kohli, and I am well-aware of her expertise first-hand. She demonstrates great conscientiousness and is truly an advocate and leader in the immigration community. A few years ago, when ICE closed down a University offering online courses to foreign nationals in the Bay Area called Tri-Valley University, Kalpana became a national leader in advocating for affected students. She represented many of these students in their reinstatement at other Universities, and she successfully helped many of them through removal proceedings. She was creative and sensitive to her clients' needs, and I often turned to her for guidance while representing many students. I am confident that she is an outstanding immigration advocate for her clients.
