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."
- Robert W. (New Jersey)
"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."
- Valmiki Amarjit, New York, NY
"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."
- Melissa Salmi, New York, NY
"Good afternoon Mr. Manchanda: Hope all is well! I want to let you know that I got a notification of USCIS department. They approved my petition of N-336. I just have to wait for the Oath ceremony.

"I am so glad I found Mr Manchanda! He is the first attorney I have met in years that really listened and understood my situation. He was very bright, confident and amusing at times. I had the feeling that it would all work out from day one. Hands down a true professional that has a good heart. Just the person I needed to push me in the right direction. He doesn't hand hold and I feel like I am better for it. I had spent too many years accepting and not fighting for what is right for me and my kids. Happy to report that it worked out for me in court today! I can finally breathe after 2 years. I am eternally grateful to him for believing in me!"

- Attorney Norman V, Philadelphia PA
"After researching lawyers on the web, I stumbled upon upon Manchanda Law Office PLLC. What separated this firm from the others on google was the level of experience and credentials that they held. I messaged the office and they got back to me promptly within the hour. I explained my complex immigration case and Rahul knew exactly what needed to happen to resolve the issue despite my record. Rahul is a competitive and no nonsense type of guy. When you hire him, you can rest easy because he wants to win as bad you do. Just stand back and trust him. He will deliver what he says he is going to. One other thing that you can appreciate about Rahul is his reachability. When you contact him, he responds back immediately or within the hour which is impressive considering how busy he is. Again, if you need help with any immigration issue, Rahul is the type of guy that you want in your corner. There isn't a case or scenario that he has not seen. When the stakes are high you need someone who has the experience and credentials to represent you."
- Tiago S., Rhode Island

- Donald Glaves, New York NY
"Attorney Manchanda Thank You: - For seeing me last minute when you knew we are facing an impossible deadline of 24 hours - For actually LISTENING, to MY story and how things are (now I can say, with a big smile, WERE) for me - For using your smarts and incredible knowledge of the Law, combining those two and finding a way for me to move forward - For working magnificently fast and diligently and for reaching our deadline, our deadline which I can only describe as mission impossible - For being patient with me when I lost paperwork that I filled out the night before, for oversleeping when we had a few hours until deadline - And for making it happen through ALL obstacles, for rising to the challenge successfully. Successfully... Successfully. - For in essence, saving my life, giving me a platform for a great new start to create a great new world, for making it possible for me to serve my purpose in this great game on Earth, our Gaia, for me to be of service My Client testitimony therefore: Attorney Manchanda immediately found a mutual interest in order for us to connect and more importantly thus, for me to feel comfortable with him. My only wish is that I had more time with him face to face but like I mentioned, this was mission impossible in terms of time. Attorney Manchanda will get the job done successfully. That is the person he is. He is regal, incredibly charming, yet bright and sharp, and his technical or academical skills show in how fast and diligently he can get the job done. Under enormous pressure whilst making me feel totally relaxed. 'No problem mate, I got you' type of thing whilst he is performing mission impossible. I am insatiable grateful. A friend of mine started making calls for me last minute because the attorneys I was working with expressed little or no hope for me. Here I meet someone who elegantly tells me, that he got my back. Imagine how I felt. A ton, of years of stress is lifted off of my back. The abuse I endured is finally in the past and I have no more strings attached to the one who kept me in a cage and made me believe I was a lesser person than my beautiful self. I went through about 12 consultations with attorneys before Manchanda, telling me that we face little or no hope. To whom this may concern and to whom this is serving as a recommendation, do yourself a favor of a lifetime and get the best New York and thus the world has to offer. I personally still can't believe he is real, but when my good news arrive in the mail I will be reminded. Namaste Francois"
- Francois Hougaard, New York NY
"Mr. Manchanda is a very smart, capable, and all around incredible lawyer. While we were searching for lawyers for our family immigration + criminal matters on an emergency basis, we went to meet with Mr. Manchanda. Immediately in the meeting room, the overall processes and necessary steps were thoroughly explained. With the other lawyers we met, we did not feel as comfortable handing over our case as we did with Mr. Manchanda. Mr. Manchanda made every effort to be there for our family no matter what time of day it was. Some might find his approach aggressive, but for our family – the aggressive approach is exactly what was needed. Mr. Manchanda personally attended to the case instead of giving it away to other lawyers or associates as some other firms we encountered did. The communication was consistent and we were always kept in the loop of our case. He was very hands on and continuously made us feel comfortable and at ease despite being in a very stressful situation. We were represented much better than we anticipated. All in all, Mr. Manchanda went above and beyond and did everything in his power to represent our case and to ensure the outcome was exactly what we needed. We couldn’t be more satisfied than we were with Mr. Manchanda’s professionalism and services that he provided to our case and family. He provided us everything we needed from a lawyer and then some."

"Hi fellas.. this is manbir singh, I want to share my experience with all of you what just happened with me couple of months ago. I had some dispute with somebody regarding some money and when I was asking for my money she called cops on me and unfortunately without asking anything from me I just got arrested and i found out that I am charged with misdemeanor of “aggressive harassment 2” and after that I picked up by “ICE” from the jail .. my family spoke to 10-12 attorneys at the end they hired Rahul Manchanda.. I told everything to sir.. he went to my criminal court date when I was in immigration custody and dismiss the case which helped me a lot to get out from immigration detainee center .. I got out on my very first court date . And judge and d.a wanted to give me next court date, Only because of Rahul Manchanda’s skills they had to give me bond the same court date .. and I was the only one who got bond in 12 people.. I got out 25 of April 2018 .. I will recommend everyone to contact to RDM FIRM.. because in these days trump administration is abusing immigrants and I saw people there, who’ve been there from 15 months .. I am so thankful to sir who got me out of there .. now we’re going to terminate this ice case on next court date.. thank you sir :)"
