Excellent Immigration Lawyer
Pradeek is an awesome immigration lawyer. The first thing I noticed about Pradeek was that he is very honest and sincere. There are no false promises but realistic creative suggestions. He is knowledgeable and passionate and helped us in a not so straightforward case. He worked very hard to analyze the case and prepare the documents. He's accessible to his clients, all day, every day, and also over the weekends. In fact, when he knew we had an interview, he helped us prepare for it over the weekend. There are no shortcuts and he is very thorough and detailed. I cannot thank him enough. I will recommend him to anyone looking for an AWESOME lawyer. KUDOS and thanks again Pradeek.

A trustworthy lawyer
I live in San Jose but decided to hire Pradeek right away after a phone consultation with him. I was able to feel his honesty, kindness and genuine care over the phone. He's always calm and willing to listen without rushing which made me feel comfortable talking and sharing all of my concerns. I hired him for my parents' adjustment of status and will be using his service soon for my fiance and hopefully adoption too if we will. I would highly recommend Pradeek to anyone who's seeking an attorney who is knowledgeable, who you can trust and truly cares about you. You'll know you're in good hand.

The best and highly knowledgeable Immigration Attorney in the bay area
Pradeek is a wonderful Attorney and I strongly recommend his services for H1B, L1A, and GC related petitions. He is very knowledgeable and highly experienced in complex immigration matters. I had a chance to work with multiple attorneys for our company's various petition needs and none of them were close to Pradeek's service standards. He did a great job for us and our success rate is always 100% with him. Some of our petitions were time sensitive and complex. Pradeek managed it very well and he even supported us on weekends, early mornings, late nights to make sure the writeups were proving the benefit requested beyond doubt. Most of the time we never received RFEs which saved us a lot of time, energy and money. He treats each and every of our petitions like his own personal petitions and we clearly saw the level of care on his document preparations. We are very grateful to find such a reputed/caring attorney for our needs and we will continue to work with him for all our future petition needs.

H1-B Transfer
I am on an H1-b visa and was on my grace period to apply and get a new job/employer. I was able get a job within my grace period, but my new firm didn't have much experience doing H1-b and asked me if I could contact a lawyer who could help us. I got to know about Susheel through Avvo and decided to go with him as he had very good recommendations from his previous clients. It was a longer process for me since my firm was hiring someone with an H1-b for the first time. I was scared that I might have to leave because I won' be able to get my documents to USCIS on time but Susheel assured me that I should not be worried or scared because it's his job to make sure that it does reach on time, form there I knew that my case was in safe hands. I got the change of employer approval and highly recommend him.

Immigration Lawyer that genuinely cares about his clients
I was in the process of choosing a right immigration lawyer for my case and had left an email to Pradeek. He promptly got back and scheduled a 1:1. Pradeek is super detailed oriented, to the point and genuinely tries to understand your situation. Though this was an introductory consultation, he patiently understood our complete history and gave us few suggestions. His understanding on the new reforms is terrific and he has a practical mind set towards solving problems rather than fear inducing. I spoke with multiple lawyers over the process of figuring out the process and Pradeek was one of the best that we came across who did not treat his prospects as commodity. Highly encourage folks to speak with him.

Very Knowledgeable
Pradeek is extremely knowledgeable in immigration matters. Because of his help, our green card filing process went through smoothly. He carefully reviewed each and every entry. In the end, due to a mistake from the immigration officer, we got a notice that our green card could be denied. Pradeek was so confident that he asked for a review of their decision of sending the notice. He quoted the relevant rules and the green card was approved immediately This made me realize the importance of a competent immigration attorney. Thank you, Pradeek.

H1B Visa Approval without RFE
I have this very messed-up H1B visa case before I had Pradeek - my initial application got denied, my second application was submitted with a wrong job code and got RFE, and Pradeek is my third try. And miraculously, my application got approved without RFE. Pradeek is not just hardworking, I really liked his way of analyzing tough situations and how he sees the wholesome picture.

Best Immigration Lawyer
We used Pradeek's services for 2 cases and found him very thorough, prompt, easy to approach and friendly. He took time to study the case and explained everything in detail. His team was also great to work with - prompt, easy to work with and thorough. I would definitely recommend Pradeek for immigration services.

Excellent attorney
Pradeek is very knowledgeable and dedicated attorney. Also since the first consultation, I noticed that he is very honest and ethical. That was an important criteria for me and I trusted him and followed his advice since the beginning. He takes very good care of his clients and addresses all possible scenarios from the beginning to make sure your case is very strong and gets approved. He is very thorough and detailed and works hard even on weekends to take care of everything and his hard work payed off at the end and my case was approved.

Excellent Immigration Lawyer!
Pradeek is efficient, effective, and accessible. He was very thorough and quick to reply (we had a lot of questions). We felt very supported and well-guided throughout the application process - and even after the case approval when we had a few more questions. Pradeek is excellent at his job, he is compassionate, thoughtful, and knows well what he is doing. I would recommend him without hesitation. (In fact, I've already recommended him to a few friends!)

Great experience
Pradeek and his team was extremely professional, and helped me navigate a complex H1B transfer situation where the previous immigration lawyer made many mistakes on. It was only thanks to him that I was able to keep my visa and continue to work in the US. Him and his team is fast, detail oriented and clearly great at what they do. I would recommend him to anyone needing visa related support

Great experience! Highly professional work!
Pradeek is a thorough professional and an absolute gentleman. I needed help with my very complicated immigration case and Pradeek knew all the nitty gritty of the matter. He made me comfortable even before I hired him and I knew he was the right man for the job. I received NOID (Notice of intent to deny) from USCIS after our interview for green card through marriage. Had a hard deadline to be met for the submission of additional evidence for i-130 and he made sure that all the work was done and the form was submitted with days to spare. He is very easy to get along with and has a human side. He went above and beyond to make sure I have a favorable outcome with my case. I can vouch for Pradeek any day of the week. If you hire him, rest assured you will be in good hands.

Pradeek is a professional, dedicated, and upright attorney.
Pradeek is a professional, dedicated, and upright attorney. Due to this global pandemic, we worked completely via technology: phone calls and online apps. Though I did not see him in person until the day of my hearing, overall, it's been an organized and smooth process. Frankly, my English is not good and my friend helped me find Pradeek online based on others' remarks. I had another lawyer working with me for 2 years before him, so he reviewed my case before taking it and of course, it's not free. I signed a contract and paid a reasonable fee because he then provided a report and explained it to me with legal advice. He has been approachable, patient and so passionate about his occupation. The other day I was so burned out while he didn't have any plan to take a break. I admire his devotion and concentration in work. Most importantly, he handled my hearing professionally and helped me win the case in the best manner. I really appreciate that he took my case very seriously and devoted so much energy and time to it. Therefore, I decided to write the first review ever. Reading some of the positive comments and looking at his favorable rates, I think he really deserves them because of his responsible hard work. Please keep up this excellent state~!

"Pradeek is truly an outstanding immigration lawyer; particularly in the areas of family-based and non-immigrant visas.
