Difficult I-140 Petition

I’m so excited after hearing the news that my I-140 got approved last week and my destination towards acquiring the green card is getting nearer and nearer.This was only possible because of the wonderful staffs working in Shah peerally Law group. I often talk to a lady named Medya Aghaansari. She is so dedicated with her work and I’m so happy and appreciate all her efforts. She has been very patient with me, answered all my questions, and guided me through the application process. I’ll definitely recommend Shah Peerally Law Group, who ever want to follow the immigration process.


H1B Approved for Startup

I had the pleasure of meeting the professionals at the Peerally Law group in 2010. I explained to Shah how my situation was extremely delicate, not to mention short on time. I had recently graduated from a top University and saw my chances of maintaining my legal status growing dim in the job market. I felt like I had fallen through the cracks of Immigration law to be cast aside and forgotten. I was worried about starting my career in my home country of Panama where earning prospects are slim, but I found a great job just in the nick of time and the Peerally Law group helped me gain my work visa. Shah and Company mobilized a quick plan of action for me and even at the difficult and critical moments in the process, SP Law was there, on top of the situation always knowing what to do next. They understood the hardships of my case, namely, that the company which was looking to hire me was less than a year old. This presented some challenges for the case but they never hesitated to lend a hand. I am forever grateful for their hard work and expertise. In just a half year, my life turned around and now I’m doing better than I ever imagined. I am so happy to join the United States work force and help this great country get back on the right track producing goods and being competitive from a manufacturing standpoint. Peerally Law really saved me and took great care in handling my case so i want to send a big THANK YOU to them all!

Business Visitor Visa Extension

Shah has been a shiny day after a storm of catastrophic lawyers that I had been recommended by friends. I found his firm through a forum link recommending his firm for EB-2 NIW and outstanding Avvo ratings. I was not disappointed. My situation is I entered the US on a B-1 and the (confused) CBP granted only 30 days vs 6 months requested, and a “No Extension of Status” bonus on my I-94. I initially approached Shah to consider a delicate change of status to EB-2 NIW. He responded in a very timely fashion and after meeting, rightfully evaluated that it was not a possible path. But Shah later outlined that he could do an extension of status in spite of the “No EOS” mark on my I-94. He guided me through filling the case diligently, and took great care in the file and did not let aside any details, to the contrary of other lawyers I have dealt with in the past. Against odds and the opinion of my previous lawyer, the extension was approved. I have only two words: Thank You

PERM Labor Certification and I-140

My name is David from Indonesia, using shah because recommendation from my previous lawyer, i am very pleased with his knowledge and ability to take care my situation (H1b with extension the 6th year thru green card with PERM process)

Even though i only have bachelor degree and i knew im on hard situation, but got my approval within 2 yrs with 1 month LC processed AMAZING WORK SHAH! Note from our office: This case had a major problem with ability to pay. We were able to successfully use the personal assets of the owner of the business to overcome the issue.


H-1B for High Tech Worker

Shah, I just wanted to let you know that I got my H1B visa from the US Embassy in my country. They also stated that because you did such a good job with the filing process, I was able to get it the very next day. Thanks for doing an excellent job. Note from our office: This H1B petition required more work than usual, since we had to combine experience with an Associates degree, along with supporting evidence of relevant expertise to establish that the candidate had the equivalent of a Bachelor’s degree.

Small Business

Shah Peerally is an excellent Lawyer with a great team. He not only helped in my personal immigration needs, but also helps my business Globus Micro inc. “who provides IT network and telecoms services” keeping us on right side of the law. Globus Micro team highly recommends his services to everyone.


Work Visa for Montessori School Teacher

I contacted Shah to obtain an H1B visa to work as a Montessori teacher in the US. Working with Shah has been a real pleasure. He found out all the necessary details and requirements and made it easy for me and my employer to file my application. Once filed – he kept my employer and me informed about the status of my application and was very reachable and approachable. Shah was able to answer my questions in a simple and straightforward manner. I strongly recommend Shah without any reservations!

Long-term support in various employment based immigration matters

  • Shah has been my immigration lawyer since last 2-2.5 years. Cases he handled were:
  • a) H-1 transfer from a hoax/corrupt body shopping company to other great company for which I am working since 2.5 years now.
  • b) Application of Green Card – LCA and I-140. In future he will be also taking care of my 485 application.
  • c)Temporary transfer to H-4 status from H-1.
  • d)Back to H-1 transfer from H-4.

The issues he resolved might seem simple,but they were very complicated considering number of factors especially timeline and legal issues. He believes in following legal means which are in accordance with USCIS which is a great plus! He works deligently, responsibly and in timely fashion. He keeps himself well updated about the rules,regulations and changes at USCIS. He has great communication skills and made sure to convey clearly all the possible things that could go wrong and could go right with my immigration issues. I would say he guided me well in making decisions. He is reliable and trustworrthy. I strongly recommend Shah for your immagration issues!!

Concurrent H-1B

I have dealt with many lawyers before and none has impressed me like Shah. I am one of those I.T. geeks who has a full-time H1B visa from one company and needed a part-time visa in order to work for a different company. The first lawyer I contacted was very unhelpful. The legal profession is not my domain and it is always very helpful if you have someone who can guide you through the legal maze. The first lawyer was totally uncooperative and outright condescending. I vividly remember picking up a phone book and looking for an immigration attorney and that is how I found Mr. Abdullah. Yes, it was a lot of work – the paperwork needed was immense but finally it all paid off. Thank you Shah!

Work Visa

I would highly recommend Shah. He is hardworking, dedicated, responsive, soft-spoken and very cordial to deal with. I have always believed that one has to work with his/her counsel/advisor to get a desired outcome and that’s worked for me once again. I retained Shah and his firm to get my H1 transfer. Now that sounds a basic case but mine was not. I was moving to a smaller company and wanted a part-time H1. I also had to make the case very strong right from the beginning. Shah came across as very knowledgeable and easy to deal with (lawyers can be difficult to work with some times). Shah asked for right documentation and checked everything to make sure we put the best step forward. He is good at listening to ideas and taking the ball and running with it. In summary, Shah will help you with your case. Work with him and listen to his advice and you will benefit.


Part-time Work Visa

I wanted to transfer my H1 to a small company plus I wanted a part time H1, which made my situation and case bit more complicated especially in context of economic circumstances. My lawyer listened to my situation patiently, I was satisfied that he had concern for me. Since my case was complicated so I needed a seasoned lawyer who not only was a knowledgeable and seasoned professional but at the same time someone who had concern for me. While working with my lawyer Shah, I found that he listened to me patiently and was my well wisher, it was not only about money, it was about my life. The way my lawyer analyzed facts for me, guided me and helped me out of way was amazing. I suggest anybody who is looking for H1 lawyer to work with Shah no matter how complicated your case is, believe me you are in best hands out there in market. He worked very professionally but at the same time he had human approach to deal with my complicated case. He was honest and gave me time, whenever I felt anxious and called him, he talked to me, I got more than perfect service and I am very thankful.

H-1B/AP-EAD/Adjustment of Status

After a case denial and spending thousand of dollars, I decided to look for a new lawyer in summer of 2006. That’s when I met Shah Peerally. After my first meeting, I was pleasantly surprised to meet a lawyer with his caliber and down- to-earth personality. Something he said left a forever lasting impression in my mind – “hey, I was not born here. I went through the same process that you are going through. I understand the anxiety and pain that comes with it. I consider my customers my family.Once I take your case, there is nothing important for to take you to last milestone – APPROVAL.” As happy as I was to hear this words, I was skeptical because of my past experience with lawyers. Anyways, we decided to give him a shot for our H1B renewal first before we hire him for green card application. Oh boy, wasn’t I glad to have hired him as we had our approval in 18 days. The part I loved was that the way Shah & team made sure I was updated every step. Digital copies of my application, email notifications and email responses within a few hours. I am technical savvy and this was a huge deal for me. No more calling some lawyer office and getting rude responses from the other side. Shah even took time out of his busy schedule to answer my emails personally. Since then , we have worked with Shah for our various Advance parole, EAD and H1B renewals while we got in the queue for green card. It was like hiring your own personal lawyer. Well fast forward 4 years, we have our I485 approval. As soon as our priority dates became current, he followed up with USCIS right away. (I believe this guy is a magician. He followed up with USCIS on Friday and I woke up Monday morning with I485 approval notice in email). He didn’t have to do this but this represent how dedicated he is to his client’s interest. I sincerely thank Shah,Shah and their team for representing us. I feel fortunate to have found Shah. The process would not have been so worry-free and smooth, had it not been for Shah Peerally. Thanks again Shah, Shah and their team.

Work Visa and Adjustment of Status

I got transferred my case from another lawyer in the middle of proceedings. Shah Peerally Law Group first handled my complex RFEs in my H1B case and then they processed my I-485 petition. Through their professional work I got approved my H1B and then soon after I-485. I can rate them nothing but excellent in every respect. When they say that they want to help the people, they literally mean it.


PERM Labor Certification/I-140

I have engaged Shah’s law firm to represent me for employment based permanent residency. So far I am extremely happy with the professional commitment shown by Shah in dealing with my case. I had a quick approval of my PERM. He was very helpful and proficient in dealing with my I140 RFE. Unlike many other immigration lawyers, I found Shah as a honest, knowledgeable and committed law attorney. Best part is that, in spite of all the qualities Shah has, he is very affordable. I would highly recommend Shah to anybody seeking any expert help in immigration matters. Thank you Shah for helping me so far. I wish you all the very best.
