Ruchi Thaker

U.S. Immigration Attorney

I am a New York City-based immigration attorney with extensive experience and excellent reputation for effective legal representation in simple and difficult immigration cases. I have experience in areas of deportation defense (criminal and non-criminal), federal court litigation, representation on appeals and motions with the immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals, family-based immigration, asylum, naturalization, and consular processing. Working with me, you, your family member, or your friend, will benefit from my experience, knowledge, and desire to see my clients succeed.

From the moment you become my firm’s client, you will be in direct communication with me. I will regularly keep you updated on the progress of your case. Your calls or e-mails will be answered promptly. You will also be able to schedule an appointment with me at your convenience to discuss your case. You will get the most important thing you seek from an immigration lawyer: honesty and integrity.

As your immigration lawyer, you can expect three things from me: personal and individualized attention to your case, professionalism, and accessibility to a lawyer. If you want this kind of attention from your immigration lawyer, then I am the lawyer for you!

The absolute best! The best experience that I could have possibly asked for. Ruchi is genuine, compassionate and extremely knowledgeable. Although our professional journey has ended I consider Ruchi as a friend now. She is the best!!!!!

From My Clients

I am extremely proud of the quality of legal representation I provide to my clients in their immigration matters. But don’t take my word for it. See what my former clients have to say about my legal services and representation!   All reviews are genuine and verification is available upon request. As you read these testimonials, keep in mind that prior results do not guarantee future outcomes and each case is individually unique. If you are a former client and would like to leave a review, please do so on the firm’s Google or Avvo listing.

My experience with Ruchi was amazing. She is a very accessible and honest person which makes you feel instantly at ease. Without her help I will probably still be waiting for my green card approval. If you are looking for an affordable law firm, that actually treats you like a real person and makes everything run smoothly, then you have found it!
