"I would like to say thank you to Manchanda Law. Before working with Mr. Manchanda I was very discouraged, and the possibility of losing my family seemed more real. Mr. Manchanda provided me with hope. He is the best attorney anyone could ever have! He took my case, although it was a very complicated case. He is very professional and well knowledgeable. He explained everything about my situation in details and made sure I understood it. He is very diligent in his work, and he cares about his clients. I highly recommend his services."

"For my U Visa case, many people referred me to several lawyers but i found most of them lacking my expectation in some way or the other. After looking for sometime, one day i decided to go with the best lawyer for my case as i didn't want to take half chances. On Google, i found him to be the best rated lawyer. i contacted his office and was able to talk to him and explain briefly about my case over the phone. At my first meeting with Mr. Rahul Manchanda at his office, the way in which he heard my case in detail & after seeing his prompt, meticulous & aggressive approach, i was fully convinced that he was the best choice i've made. The energy & speed at which he worked on my case was impeccable. He was very professional in his approach & responded very promptly to each one of my case-related queries & doubts. His vast experience as an immigration lawyer, energetic approach & a never give up attitude is few of his many attributes which makes him stand apart from all other lawyers in the United States. I shall never forget his immense contribution in resolving my U Visa case. Thanks a lot for taking up my case. Wish you all the best !!! GOD BLESS YOU !! Let me know once it is done. Thank you."


- Yash Vardhan, New Jersey

"Having Rahul Manchanda on my side saved my case!! Let me start by saying issues with immigration are extremely frightening to say the least. I spoke to and spent thousands of dollars taking advice from half a dozen attorneys who told me there was nothing i could do, and that it was out of my hands to just hope for the best. I felt like they preyed on my desperation and took my money even though they had no real solution. On my initial call with Rahul he proposed a solution immediately. He understood exactly what the issue was and knew the appropriate way to counter any arguments that might be made against me. He helped get me in touch with the right experts and went to bat for me against USCIS and the Mumbai Consulate. He constantly pushed them to resolve my issue when they were dragging their feet and ignoring emails. The burden and stress from this case felt like a cancer on my life, but he honestly made me feel hopeful again, not only because he was reassuring but because he is extremely knowledgeable and doesn't waste your time."

"Rahul Manchanda was a beacon of hope to my family at a time when our options appeared limited and the possibility of a suitable resolution seemed impossible. Mr. Manchanda has provided legal advice and guidance during a difficult situation. Perhaps the thing that impressed us most was nothing was "sugar coated". He was very straight forward and told us what to expect each step of the way. I found him to be very experienced, approachable, knowledgeable and authentic. While working with Mr.Manchanda, We felt as though our situation was in skillful and trustworthy hands, and he did not steer us wrong. I would highly recommend Rahul Manchanda to anyone seeking legal representation because he is fair, honest and will keep your best interest and sole needs at the front. Should any situation ascend, I would not hesitate to seek representation from him again."
