Kripa helped me with my employee's work immigration need. Her dedication and passion in helping her clients is outstanding. I have worked with good lawyers in the past, but Kripa is special. Not only is she knowledgeable as one should, she is responsible, down to earth and GENUINELY cares about your need. With Kripa, there is no surprises (except pleasant ones). I am very happy to have found you, Kripa. Thank you for being a positive force in your industry.

I was having a hard time finding an immigration lawyer to help me with my political asylum case, all the other lawyers I came across disregarded my case and suggested other options. On the verge of my search for an immigration expert I was able to get a hold of kripa and she took my case. I met kripa and through her sharpness she was able to understand the complexities of my case. kripa prepared my case which took more than a year. It was not easy with such a long waiting period for my case to be heard in court but, kripa was very supportive and worked very hard to finalize the case. She kept me well informed and guided through the whole process.
I was very comfortable and ready when my court date finally arrived, It was promising as my case was approved and now when I look back I am grateful and delightful of kripa, she helped me put my life on track and she is definately worthwhile.
Thank you Kripa.

My husband and I hired Ms. Upadhyay to help us with his Adjustment of Status application. She met us at her office; provided us written information of the process which gave us a good idea of what was going to take place and what to expect. She made us feel completely at ease. She was a pleasure to work with - always accessible (even on weekend and after normal business hours). She was so good at keeping us informed that we were amazed at her sense of responsibility. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing an Immigration attorney.

I hired Kripa to help me file for H-1 and PERM cases for my employees. She met me at my office in the Bellevue area; gave me a very detailed picture of what to expect, including timelines and corresponding costs.
She was always available for phone calls and in person meetings, even if it meant entertaining a call from me on her personal number at 9:30 PM on more than one occassion!
She is a truly superb lawyer who cares very deeply about the clients she works with, and seems to leave no stone unturned in ensuring the desired results.
She was very professional; detailed and thorough in her work product and such a pleasure to work with, we have decided to have her as our go-to attorney for all Immigration issues.
