She can confidently manage complex immigration issues like what I had
Attorney Anu Gupta is a very knowledgeable, honest, helpful, approachable and supportive immigration lawyer. She can confidently manage complex immigration issues like what I had.
I came to the United States on a J1 visa (exchange visitor) and was on it for 6 years. After which I had a work visa until I resigned from a job due to licensing issues. My plan is to get my license back, which apparently would require some time to process. I had my work visa changed to a tourist visa so I can stay in the US legally. ...But I needed more time to resolve my licensing issues. I then had to apply for a student visa- this idea is per suggestion of a relative. My previous immigration lawyer was not helpful at all in the change of status process. She did not even discuss options for me to lengthen my stay in the US. All she cared about was to charge me of every single minute that I spend talking to her in person or in the phone but nothing relevant was discussed. Then I spoke with another immigration lawyer who basically said that there is no way that the USCIS is going to approve my change of status to student visa. I was losing hope at that time and was on the verge of giving up. I was thinking of just going back to my home country to avoid the stress of dealing with the immigration issues. But then I found Attorney Anu Gupta. It may sound cliché but after talking to her I literally found a light at the end of the tunnel. She was very optimistic on my case. She answered all of my questions and she was very open to my suggestions. We explored all other options and chose the best route. She was the one who even took care of the RFE (request for evidence) for my tourist visa. Her attention to detail is highly commendable. She made sure that no loose ends are hanging on my case. The moment she reviewed my case, she knew exactly what to do. She had a different game plan for me. I was initially dubious with her recommendations and she acknowledged my feelings but she replied “You have to trust me on this. This is what we should do and I know exactly what the USCIS wants to approve your case”. So I adhered with her strategy and recommendation and low and behold, after a few months of waiting, my student visa got approved. I am currently working on getting my license back and I am looking forward to working with Attorney Gupta again to process my work visa.
