I am a native San Franciscan. I met my husband in Berkeley, CA some years ago. My husband was born in Mexico, and had come to the U. S. when he was a young boy. He entered the country illegally he was unaware of this detail. As the years passed he was gainfully employed, and paid his taxes. He always wanted to become a permanent resident but was afraid. His status as an illegal Alien prohibited him from traveling, driving, attending Dr. appointments, and a host of other events, and just daily activities. We made a decision to come out of the shadows and seek legal counsel in hopes that our lives would change for the better.
I was in search of an attorney to assist us with this delicate matter- immigration. I researched law firms and I attended a few legal consultations. I made an appointment at Ranchod Law Group. The reason my family and I decided to put our trust in Ranchod Law Group was simple, Mr. Ranchod, his team of attorneys, and the paralegals were courteous, knowledgeable, great listeners and professional. From the first meeting my husband and I were relaxed even when speaking with him about personal matters regarding my husband’s illegal entry as a child into the U.S. The team of attorneys and paralegals made us feel comfortable and they worked diligently to assure that all of our documents were prepared correctly in order to be approved.
The journey of becoming a permanent resident is challenging and very daunting. It’s stressful, time consuming and confusing. I couldn’t have completed this complicated process without Ranchod Law Group.
If you have a loved one that needs to come out of the shadows and seek legal counsel regarding immigration; Ranchod Law Group will help you every step of the way, and they do it confidently, professionally, and with respect. I will forever be indebted to the staff at Ranchod Law Group, they provided my husband and I with a gift that is priceless.
Mr. & Mrs. Rodriguez

My husband and I went through the I 601A process and it seemed to be very confusing and daunting. We heard about Kaushik and decided we did indeed need an experienced attorney in immigration to help us. Kaushik and his amazing staff, mainly Claudia Linares, helped us through this process. My husband is now a resident thanks to all of their hard work! We are very grateful to Kaushik and Claudia. We definitely without hesitation recommend Kaushik and his staff to help anyone going through this process. It is nerve racking and times but Kaushik and Claudia was always there to reassure us! Best of luck to everyone!

We Hired Mr Kaushik last week on such short Notice for our stokes interview. At first i was really panicking and wondering how we would handle the situation. Kaushik, definitely eased my mind and our fears. He was able to gather all the facts and necessary information that would work in our favor. He was very patient with us. He would listen with concern and give very detailed and precise advice to prepare us for the Interview. Even for the preparation he came up with like half of the questions that were brought up at the actual interview. His sincerity to help was very evident and even at the actual interview he did not leave any stone unturned. He made sure all our concerns were addressed and would step in to intervene whenever he had a chance to. I would definitely Go back to him if anything because i had dealt with a different Lawyer before and he did not even offer half of the help that Mr Kaushik did.

The Ranchod Law Group has a great team. They helped me get a J-1 visa waiver, which is usually a complicated and long process. They walked me through every step, and with their help I was able to get a positive decision in a record time. Also, throughout the entire process Melissa, and Kaushik were very open and transparent about everything, which helped me gain an understanding of how these things work, which I appreciate. Thanks to Ranchod Law Group I was able to stay in the US with my family, and be there for the birth of my first daughter. I will forever be thankful for that.

i recently apply for my U.S. citizen. After I passed the test the officer started asking me question about my marriage, I was divorced at the time. She ask me for proof of my marriage I sent it; I still got a denial letter saying that I misrepresented my application for permanent resident. I was very upset and googled information about it, a lot of people were skeptical about the appealing. I found Ranchod law group and spoke with mister Kaushik; he explained what we could do and I decided to hire them. Melissa was who filled all the paperwork and then at the time of the hearing Emma went with. They all know what they doing, Melissa and Emma always kept in contact with me so answer any question I had. Some days ago I had my citizenship approved and I'm just waiting on a date to take the oath to finally become a U.S. Citizen. I could not thank them enough and would highly recommend them to anyone, actually if I'm involved on any other immigration issue or any one I know, this is the place I would go

I was very delighted with the service that Ranchod Law Group provided me for my wife's immigration status. I was very pleased that everything worked out as fast as it did. Emma did a fantastic job at guiding and reassuring us throughout the whole process with any questions that we had. We both look forward to working with you again in the future to remove the 2 year restrictions and to complete the final steps.
Thank again for all you help and support.

We cannot thank Ranchod Law Group enough for their help and successfully getting our J-1 waiver case approved. The benefits of this success are immense and without that, my family and I could have been separated for two years.
I found Ranchod Law Group after a long search and contacting about two-dozen different lawyers (including some very famous law firms in the nation) over a course of more than 6 months.
Our case was a "J-1 Waiver" (NOT based on No Objection Statement). This kind of case is exceedingly rare and is one of the most difficult cases in all of the immigration law. Most general immigration lawyers will not handle a J-1 waiver case because of the complexities involved. I did hours and hours of research on the internet on this subject and tried to find lawyers that have experience in this type of case. It's my finding that there are definitely not more than a handful that have "good experience" in this kind of case. Without a doubt, Ranchod Law Group is one of them.
The most difficult part of this search is that, unfortunately, there are some general immigration lawyers with no experience in this kind of case that will take it for a fee regardless. When they lose because of lack of experince, they blame the inevitable defeat on the government. I tried to make sure they have first-hand experience of handling such cases by asking several specific questions in the first consultation call I had. The other problem is that some of those experienced attorneys charge very unreasonably outrageous fees given the rare nature of these cases.
During my first phone call, I spoke with Michael and understood that they have a professional team in the office. We made an appointment to have a consultation with Kaushik and ask my questions. During my inteview and based on my experience of talking to about two-dozen lawyers, I could feel that Kaushik is very professional and more importantly has good experiences in this type of case. Another positive point of our first discussion is that he was also completely upfront and honest about no guarantees in any difficult cases like this. He also provided me with a very reasonable fee for the level of difficulty of this case compared to general immigration cases.
This kind of application required a lot of work, both on our part and the attorney's part. We mainly worked with Melissa, the associate attorney who was very dedicated in preparing the case. She was very knowledgeable about what we should do to present our case in its best form and during the 3 months of case preparation process, she answered my various questions regarding the details very efficiently. This process did not take longer than the timeline that Kaushik had initially sketched.
I also found Kaushik to be really professional and patient. Due to a misunderstanding of the process on our side, we developed some concerns and contacted Kaushik to express our concern. He listened to my concern with patience, responded very calmly and told me that he will follow up. We were later contacted by Melissa and she explained the missunderstanding and we were really grateful for their professional and respectful behaviour and customer service.
The only thing that was less than a really perfect experience was that a few times our phone appointments were missed by staff and we had to call them to remind about our appointment.
Again, we are incredibly grateful to the Ranchod Law Group for all their help and quality service, and will definitely recommend them to anyone seeking a J-1 waiver.

Kaushik and his team at Ranchod Law have helped me with all of my work visa applications for the last 7 years, they were especially helpful after I got married and decided to apply for my green card. The team at Ranchod Law went to great lengths to prepare my documents, guide me through the application process, and answer any questions or concerns I had. I am very happy with the assistance they have provided over the years, and the personal interactions with Kaushik and his team.

We could not have been happier that we selected Ranchod Law Group. We felt that all communications were timely and clear. You (Emma) always responded timely, spoke in a language that we understood (not too much legal jargon), and were always patient with our 5 million questions and emails. We always felt so comfortable, and also that you cared about us and our situation. For you guys this could be just business - for us this is our life and happiness. We always felt that you knew that, and were compassionate and patient.
We also felt that the rates were very reasonable, clear, and upfront (no surprises!)
We are very grateful, and feel very blessed to have your group (and specifically Emma) represent us.

My wife and I are thrilled to receive our Green Cards after a long journey. Kaushik and Harry from the Ranchod Law Group have been instrumental in this process. They have done a fantastic job with everything related to our Green Card, EAD filings and RFE responses. They have been extremely professional with the correspondences, advice and meticulous with the paperwork. I would not hesitate to reach out to them again if I ever need any further immigration related assistance. I would rate their service as excellent and will definitely recommend them to friends and family.
