RB – Director, Immigration Law Firm

I have been working with Ravi and his team since around 10 years ago while employed with a Global Immigration Law firm. Since then all law firms I worked with have instructed A1 Visas. I really wish we have a team like this in other countries. I would personally never use another US company. They manage expectations throughout the process; highlight any potential risks or concerns and most important double and triple check all the paperwork before filing. I do not know how anyone can manage US applications without Ravi and the brilliant team at A1. They are efficient, knowledgeable and highly reasonable. They spend hours liaising with embassies, lawyers and clients for one goal of having success. I cannot thank them enough for the success achieved together over the years.
