I got my US L1 Visa through them, pretty smooth process. We weren’t sure they’d take our case as we had some issues with retrieving some documents, but they worked with us on getting everything we needed. Recommend.

Allow me to express that our case proved to be more complex than initially anticipated. However, Aisha and Reena provided unwavering support throughout the entire process. At each juncture, they offered clear guidance on necessary actions, guiding us through the intricacies we couldn’t navigate independently. While the procedure proved more intricate than expected, our legal team maintained close communication, ensuring we were well-informed and adequately prepared. Confronted with challenges, they approached them with a positive attitude, instilling confidence through their professionalism and competence. I wholeheartedly recommend their services. While moments of stress were inevitable, their assurance and ability to convey that confidence were instrumental. Reflecting on the experience, I am certain we would not have succeeded without their assistance, or at the very least, the journey would have been significantly prolonged.
