Mr Khanna is not only a prominent immigration attorney in US but also a very helpful person. Right from the days of Unitefamilies (back in 2004-2005), he is very helpful and a great adviser in helping us in all possible means. Even though his time is very costly, but he is always much willing to help us with entire heart and without any cost. I am very thankful to Rajiv Khanna for all the advises he has given me in all these years.

Regarding my parents’ immigrant Visa through consular processing at New Delhi I would like to thank the team at Atty Khanna’s office. We filed in July 2009, and got it in May 2011. During the process there were many challenges, the department requested a few documents over and over again, and sent their papers to Lahore consulate (they were born in Lahore, undivided India). Each challenge was met and finally the got the permamnent Visa. I wish to thank Prernaji, Atty Chacko and the rest of the Team at Law offices of Rajiv S. Khanna.  Without their support and guidance, it would not be possible for me to get this done on my own. Thanks again.
