Our diverse staff is also multilingual, with members who speak French, Spanish, Hindi, Urdu, Punjabi, Arabic, Persian/Farsi, and Pashto. Because we focus  on immigration law, and have developed a systematic, responsive, team-oriented approach, we are able to offer effective, exceptional-quality service at highly competitive rates (call us at (510) 742 5887 to discuss about the Attorney Fees). We are actively assisting  H4 visa holders obtaining their Employment Authorization Documents (EAD) as well as filing a number of successful H1B transfers, amendments, EB1, PERM Labor Certifications and National Interest Waivers. Our firm had previously assisted clients seeking employment authorization and deferred action protection through the Dream Act inspired Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) application process.

Over the years, we have successfully handled hundreds of H-1B visa petitions for specialty occupation workers, several of whom that are placed at Fortune 500 companies, as well as intra-company transferees employed at multinational corporations (L-1 visas). We are also skilled in labor certifications (PERM) and employment based green card petitions. As part of our services to employers, we advise on matters including I-9 compliance and DOL audits. We also help individuals, including political asylum seekers in removal proceedings, family-based green card applicants, and those seeking inadmissibility waivers.

The Shah Peerally Law Group PC has also been helping a lot of students with their student visas, their issues regarding Optional Practical Training (OPT) and Curricular Practical Training (CPT) issues. The law firms prides itself in the advocacy for its immigration advocacy helping in all areas of immigration. Recently the law firm has been filing a number of successful National Interest Waivers and EB1 visa cases.  Read what one client said about us on EB1 case:

“At the institution, I started working (Aug 2014), the lawyer told me that I would need to wait a few years to qualify for EB1. I contacted Shah in Dec 2015 and after I gathered the required documents for EB1 (outstanding professor and researcher). We did premium processing and submitted our application in May 2015 and after two weeks, we were approved. I had to wait for my spouse to be in the US to start the green card process. We submitted all the docs in January 2016 and in April 2016, we had our green cards in our hands. Our case was well presented and Shah and his staff prepared my case very well. I recommend him anytime.”

Our Advocacy Work

The Shah Peerally Law Group PC has not only made made a name for excellence and dedication but is also renowned for its compassion and social work including pro bono workshops, awareness campaigns, human and civil rights advocacy.

Recently the law group obtained a major victory on the H4 work permit (EAD).  After four years of extensive lobbying and campaigning to change the H4 visa law, Shah Peerally and many H4 america-1295554visa holders were finally successful in changing an unfair law. Ultimately in 2015, through President Obama executive order, certain H4 visa holders were able to get a work permit.  Now the law firm is focusing on petitioning the US government to raise the U visa cap to 30,000 from only 10,000.  The U visa is given to those who are victims of certain crimes.  While it is an amazing relief, there are not enough available for all.
