I’ve dealt with several immigration attorney’s on my H1 visa over the past 2 years.  Priya is the best attorney so far! She is very fast and efficient.  Also she is quite responsive and never lets you wait for a few days like other attorneys did.  I highly recommend her. Trust me sometime attorneys can give you lots of pain, but definitely not Priya. ”
