I approached Attorney Anu regarding my EB-1B 140 application after several attorneys rejected and would not agree to handle my application citing low credentials and my not having a strong case for EB-1B outstanding researcher application. I spoke to Anu about the positives and negatives and asked her for her suggestions. After reviewing my case, Attorney Anu gave me comprehensive details of positive and negative...
aspects and suggested some changes to my approach. She then guided me on how to bolster my credentials for EB-1B filing.
I trusted her and the guidance she provided to me was outstanding during the entire process. She suggested I wait patiently while she reviewed and addressed the negative aspects of my case and she methodically addressed them one by one.
I was so comfortable with her working style that I decided to hire her for all my future immigration needs irrespective of the outcome of my current case.
Attorney Gupta and her team helped in drafting the recommendation letters, compiling my patents and publications. Attorney Gupta and Attorney Meyer spent a good amount of time on my case, outlining all my qualifications and making sure they met the legal criteria. Even though the Immigration Desk team took a couple of weeks more than I anticipated, they made sure that we got all the proper documentation for filing my EB-1b I-140 application.
I received the case number beginning of second week, followed by approval within the same week. Overall, the process took a little less than 4 months from starting the file to approval.
I highly recommend Attorney Gupta. During this whole time, she showed empathy and worked hard to make sure everything was in order. Attorney Gupta doesn't just work for money, or make false promises. She gives open and honest feedback and even walks clients as to how to improve your case.
I am 100% satisfied with her services and efforts and rate her as one of the most highly skilled and knowledgeable immigration attorneys. I have also recommended her to other professionals in need of immigration services.
Attorney Anu Gupta is extremely competent to take on National Interest Waiver cases.
My wife and I very much appreciate that Ms. Gupta took care of all the parts of my green card application. Without her organizational skills my application would have taken at least twice as much time and effort....
Despite the complexity of the process and her busyness, she always found the time to personally address all the specific details of my case. I also appreciate how much she invested herself into our case and how she helped me to stay on schedule and kept me informed about every step of this complicated and convoluted process. My green card petition has been approved recently.
My EB1A (green card in the extra-ordinary ability individual category) was filed and approved in 3 months!
I found Anu Gupta after an exhaustive research online, her reviews stood out to me as they all had a common theme that she pays great attention to details and maps out the winning path.
I filed EB1 in Aug 2021 and got i140 approval in early nov 2021 which included an RFE response....
She is absolutely terrific and has an individualistic approach, that’s how she made it happen. She is truly an expert and works for you for the most positive outcome. With great attention to details, she builds the case from every piece of evidence that can be possibly used and her conviction shows. She is available to discuss the details and for planning at each step.
She is the attorney you need on your side for your immigration to be a smooth sail.
She has guided me throughout this petition process. She has helped me in choosing the experts/scientists for recommendation, helping in preparation of these letters, and suitably highlighting my research background that has resulted in getting approval of my petition.
She and her staff at Immigration Desk Inc were very patient and available most of the time I needed them, with and without appointments.
She has done my other petitions successfully as well such as H1B approval and EB-2 PERM and I-140 approvals. I am really happy to recommend Anu for EB-1 and EB-2 petitions.
She was very clear about my chances and what I should expect from the get-go. She told me that regardless of my qualifications/merits I should expect a “request-for-evidence” (RFE) from USCIS and she made sure that there was a rough plan ahead of time in handling such a situation. Her statements were generally measured, and she was always careful during conversations to not give false hopes/promises, which I consider to be a highly valuable trait for any attorney.
Sometimes, even with the best-drawn plans, life has a way of throwing its own curveball to complicate everything. In my case, although we planned on submitting my application much earlier than the J1 status expiration in 2020, the COVID pandemic led to numerous delays in the process. However, we did manage to file before the J1 expiry but as she originally expected, an RFE was issued and in the meanwhile, my J1 expired preventing me from continuing work.
The RFE was, from my perspective, a tough ask. USCIS had rejected all my claims and raised questions on every piece of evidence that we had originally submitted.
Anu made sure that we address all of their requests in a comprehensive manner. It should also be mentioned at this point that, that year was an election year (Trump-Biden 2020) and the presidential election was right around the corner. Both my employer and I were happy with the response Anu and her team had prepared and were confident that the application should be approved given its strength and thoroughness in both satisfying the requirements and in addressing the concerns raised by USCIS.
However, USCIS reviewed my application along with an RFE response and rejected my case on the morning after election night through fax at 6:59 AM. I was devastated. What affected me the most was that although my achievements qualified me for an O1A, USCIS refused to recognize it. I had lost all hope and desire of continuing my work and life in the US.
In the first conversation after my rejection with Anu, she spoke to me with passion for how I deserve the O1A and strongly urged me to apply once more. She made sure that didn’t have to leave the country (due to the COVID pandemic returning even with an approved application was very hard).
For me, it was here that Anu Gupta’s greatest quality both as a person and an attorney was highlighted. There are many professional and talented attorneys, which she is, but finding someone who actually cares about their clients and is willing to fight for them with conviction is difficult. Someone willing to fight for you even when going gets tough- even when you lose the strength to continue fighting. In that sense, Anu Gupta is a rare find.
Eventually (approximately a month from the second filing), my second application was approved without difficulty.
The choice of attorney can make or break any case and the choice of Anu Gupta for your immigration needs is one of the easiest recommendations that I can ever make.
