  • Priya is honest, ethical, and has a good heart AND she is a splendid attorney

    “I had a family emergency back home over the weekend and needed an immediate legal advice re: a travel permit. I contacted a lot of attorneys in Bay Area but Priya turned out to be the best. 1. Priya responded to my email inquiry right away although it was Saturday 2. She gave advice freely, without reservation 3. Her advice was accurate and easy to follow (i.e. I did what she suggested and I had the permit Monday morning) 4. Priya offered the simplest and the least expensive option to solve the problem (In this case, I didn't have to pay anything). She did not take advantage of my crisis just to make money. I know this because: One place I contacted offered a solution but it would have cost over $1000 and the process would have taken much longer. At another office, the receptionist told me that "it would cost $100/hr for an office consultation, $150/hr for a phone consultation" and "she (the attorney) would not even talk to you unless you have an appointment." Priya is honest, ethical, and has a good heart AND she is a splendid attorney. I would recommend her to any of my friends if they need immigration related services.”

  • She managed everything flawlessly and we were successful.

    “We hired Priya to complete the H1B Visa application for a candidate from Denmark. Priya exhibited not only a great depth of knowledge and certainty on completing the application but also in indicating the proper attributes of the position, category and market comparisons that would result in approval. Priya was very proactive throughout the process and showed a great deal of availability and interest in supporting our application. She managed everything flawlessly and we were successful. We are a new start-up consulting firm, so it was very important to engage the Alagiri law firm. Priya has a great deal of expertise in supporting small companies in the H1B process and achieving outstanding results. I highly recommend her!”

  • They helped to file everything to get me approved.

    “With full respect to this Law Firm, I’m writing this review. Without their professional and effective work, I cannot get my H1b visa approved. Especially after I received a notice of RFE( request foe evidence), they helped to file everything to get me approved. Thanks a lot!”

  • She is quick to respond to your questions and concerns.

    “Priya is a wonderful attorney to work with. She is quick to respond to your questions and concerns. She is professional and experienced. Most importantly, she is a great person at heart. From my experience, some attorneys see your case as a mere “business.” However, you can trust Priya to look out for your best interest. I definitely recommend her for any immigration related issue.”

  • I would recommend her services without question and will be letting others know of this unique place should they have concerns or questions regarding the immigration process.

    “I usually don’t Yelp in general, especially about lawyers. But I felt compelled to write a little something here if I can be of service to anyone else looking for a lawyer in this complex area of immigration. Ms. Alagiri was responsive, professional, helpful and really put me at ease during a challenging time in my life. I would recommend her services without question and will be letting others know of this unique place should they have concerns or questions regarding the immigration process.”

  • Priya did an excellent job for me.

    “Priya did an excellent job for me. She helped me get an H1B visa for one of my employees — an engineer at my small software development firm. The rate we paid Priya was fair and the work was good. We got the H1B visa on the first try. I would recommend Priya to anyone trying to get an H1B.”

  • Before I knew it, my application had been processed and approved.

    “I’ve worked with several immigration attorneys since arriving in the U.S. and consider Priya to be the best. Before I knew it, my application had been processed and approved. It was an effortless experience where I was informed every step of the way. I would certainly recommend Priya to my friends and colleagues.”

    Ahmed H.

  • In the end, her tactics were successful and I got my H1B!

    “I chose to work with Priya and the Alagiri Law Firm in San Mateo, even though my goal was moving from Europe to the East Coast on an H1B visa. The reason why? After a thorough screening and hours spent on the phone with small and large law firms in NY and NJ – and Priya as the only outsider, my employer and I felt comfortable that Priya was the one who would best be able to meet our needs. She was responsive, professional, fairly priced, had extensive experience – and very important to us: extensive experience in getting H1Bs for start-up businesses. We only signed the Retainer Agreement with Priya late April – basically, after the H1B application window had opened – so we were very much running against the clock. Priya showed to be extremely professional and efficient – and had a great quality that every experienced consultant should possess: she listened to all our inputs, but being the expert she sometimes overruled all our “great suggestions” and did things the way she knew would work best! In the end, her tactics were successful and I got my H1B! I would recommend the Alagiri Law Firm to anyone with absolutely no hesitation.”

    Christian B.

  • I would strongly recommend Priya to anyone for any immigration issues.

    “Immigration issues are always a cause of great stress – they really do take a toll on you and if you don’t have the right guidance or representation, you’re in big trouble. As I was attorney shopping for my permanent resident application, I was very lucky to have bumped into Priya’s website. The initial consultation, which was extremely professional and helpful, led me to retain the services of her firm. Ever since then, I have received exemplary service with all my questions/ doubts being clarified and answered very promptly, documents being filed in an extremely timely fashion, appropriate guidance given and a meticulous and objective approach taken on my case. I felt safe that my case was being handled well. The quality of work, timely replies and excellent communication is what makes Priya stand out from the rest. I would strongly recommend Priya to anyone for any immigration issues.”

    Aditi V.

  • I cannot recommend any better immigration attorney than Priya Alagiri.

    “No enough words exist to describe how great Priya is at what she does, and to everyone who is looking for legal immigration help she is: 1-Concise: She does not tell you things that are not true( like other attorneys that want more business), she gives FACTS. 2-Responsible: If she is handling your case that means she is handling your case. Sadly, many attorneys nowadays tend to take a long time working on your case, which wastes your precious time, and Priya takes your time (which is sometimes limited in many immigration cases) to solve your issues with no delays. 3-Responsive: Answers emails/phone calls right away, and if she is away, she calls back within 30 mins. 4-Caring:You can clearly see that she has a passion in helping immigrants. She really cares. I cannot recommend any better immigration attorney than Priya Alagiri.”

  • I can say with no hesitation that Priya is the most knowledgable, kind and empathetic lawyer I have ever worked with!

    “I have been in the US for over 10 years and dealt with many immigration lawyers -- I can say with no hesitation that Priya is the most knowledgable, kind and empathetic lawyer I have ever worked with! I first 'cold-called' Priya in late 2011 looking for some advice on my immigration situation. She responded to me promptly and provided pertinent factual information for me to decide on what next steps to take. Following my initial interactions with her, I decided to hire her to represent us and had the most pleasant and smooth engagement experience since then -- The prices are reasonable, her response before-during-after filings has always been prompt and last but not least, when she says she will get it done, it is done right and on time. If you are looking for any immigration work, I would highly recommend you give her a call for a fantastic experience!”

    Abi R.

  • Definitely recommend using their services.

    “Immigration laws constantly change. It’s hard to keep up with what is allows and what is not. We have used Alagiri Law in several companies and each time we have had excellent results. Their promptness and advice has been spot on and they have guided our employees through the process to reduce stress on the new hire as well as mange our expectations throughout the process. Unlike larger VC associated firms where you can get lost as a startup, Alagiri Law manages the start to finish process. Definitely recommend using their services.”
