“As a Canadian living in the United States for the last ten years, I have gone through several different Visas and worked with many immigration lawyers. The Visa application process can be intimidating and it makes all the difference in the world to work with someone as thoughtful, kind, professional and talented as Shivani. After speaking with several lawyers, I decided to work with Shivani because she brought a tremendous amount of comfort, confidence and clarity to the process. From consultation through final approval, Shivani was an absolute joy to work with and I always felt very taken care of. I couldn't recommend Shivani and her team enough.”
Jasmine Chong, Fashion Designer
“I met Shivani at my NYFW show. One of my models just received her green card through Shivani's firm, and she invited her as a guest to the show. As soon as I met her, I knew I wanted to work with her. She's the complete opposite of a stuffy NY lawyer, and she helped me get my O1 so I could continue my dream of working as a fashion designer in NY. With a business as creative and personal as your own fashion label, it was so important to me to work with someone who cared about the story behind my work and shared my values. since then, my co-founder Jacintha and I decided to continue working with her for all our business needs, like trademarks and contract negotiations, because we've always felt understood and very taken care of working with Shivani.”

Shivani is an extremely knowledgeable and thorough attorney. I chose to work with her on my Green Card application because of her experience with fashion models, artists and celebrities in this area. Throughout the process, she delivered above and beyond her duties, and always answered any questions I had by email or over the phone very quickly.
I have since sought her legal advice for a new business I was starting, which has proved to be invaluable.

“Working with Shivani while I was in the process of getting my O-1 Visa was one of the easiest, most painless experiences I have ever had. As an actor, this wasn’t my field of expertise. I was unsure about a lot of the process that were involved and I heard it could be quite daunting. Not only did Shivani lay everything out in a clear and insightful manner from day one but she also responded to any questions I had quickly and knowledgeably. For matters like this, I think it behoves someone to be thorough and meticulous so that when you file so there are no unforeseen hiccups; that is exactly what Shivani provides. Thank you for helping with my 0-1 Visa Shivani, I was lucky to find you!”
