Attorney P. Michael Khosla prepares or supervises the preparation and reviews all cases himself with the assistance of his team members. Each and every case is thoroughly reviewed by Attorney Khosla, no matter how big or small, before it is filed. This is a system Attorney Khosla has followed from day one, since 1995, and this is the hallmark of his legal practice and the basis of his reputation for quality. As as an Engineer, Attorney Khosla understands technology, which is a huge asset for our STEM (Science/Technology/Engineering/Mathematics) client base
Attorney P. Michael Khosla, by his very nature, being an immigrant, has real compassion for his fellow immigrants and treats each and every case with a human touch. At the end of the day, each case represents a human being having specific career goals and personal aspirations, and for a client to place their trust in a lawyer and to count their lawyer as an integral part of their life during the tough period of obtaining lawful work status in the United States, is a privilege and an honor.
Our roots go back to Peoria, Illinois, where the law firm originated in 1995 as a small office in downtown Peoria, IL across from the Caterpillar World Headquarters, where Attorney Khosla used to work as an in-house attorney for CAT in the patent department on the 6th floor during 9 am-5 pm on Adams Street, and worked vigorously to grow his private practice in Immigration Law during the hours outside of the traditional 9-5 hours, working out of his small office in the Twin Towers on SW Jefferson, a brisk 2 minute walk from Adams Street. Being an engineer himself (with BS and MS Degrees in Chemical Engineering) and having several years of working experience at CAT, both as an Engineer and a Lawyer, and having a thorough knowledge of the CAT products and processes, Mr. Khosla’s private practice grew quickly because he was able to relate to his H-1B and Green Card clients, most of whom were engineers working at CAT through various contracting companies and vendors to CAT in Peoria. Over the course of the next 3 years, from 1995-1997, the law firm’s client base expanded to H1B and Green Card seeking clients (and their employers) from just Illinois, to over 20 states, all across the country from New Jersey to Minnesota, from Indiana to Texas, and from Florida to California. In 1998, Attorney Khosla took a new corporate job at Proctor & Gamble (P&G) as an Intellectual Property Counsel, working at P&G’s offices in Cincinnati, Ohio, while continuing full-force in his private practice in Immigration Law. In due course of time, in 2020, after wearing two hats for almost 5 years as both a Corporate Lawyer and a Private Immigration Law practitioner, Mr. Khosla took a permanent hiatus from big corporate America, to pursue his one and only love – private practice in business and family immigration law.
Fast forward to 2023, and this small boutique law firm now enters into the 29th year of practice but still remains focused exclusively in FAMILY & BUSINESS IMMIGRATION LAW. We have worked with each client, whether an individual, a small or midsize firm, or a large Fortune 500 corporation, as a partner, tailoring our services to their special needs and requirements.
Our corporate clients include large mechanical, electrical, civil, chemical, environmental and biotechnology engineering companies, construction companies, information technology consultants, banks, media and newspapers, scientific research organizations, universities, dotcoms, pharmaceutical firms, DNA Genomics research organizations, steel and cable manufacturing, financial consulting firms, actuarial firms and medical institutions of all sizes, including physicians and chiropractors, in cases involving the hiring of international personnel and visa matters. Over the course of 28 years, we have represented tens of thousands of H1B, L1, E3, TN and Green Card cases of multiple levels of complexity.
Our individual clients include foreign nationals, Green Card holders and US Citizens, all of whom have their own unique stories and backgrounds. Some seek Green Cards for their spouses, children, parents and siblings. Others seek US Citizenship after having possessed a Green Card for over 3 or 5 years. Yet others seek a Green Card on their own, either through a family sponsorship or sponsorship by a present or future employer. Over the course of 28+ years we have handled thousands of Family Based Green Card cases, with varying levels of complexities, all the way from simple I-130s by USCs for spouses, to complex I-751 self petitions in cases involving divorce in the first 2 years of marriage, to cases involving criminal issues, moral turpitude, and cases involving in-person representation at the local office.
Attorney Michael Khosla is himself an immigrant to the U.S., having come here about 38 years ago on an F-1 student visa from Bombay, India, to pursue an MS Chemical Engineering Degree, eventually becoming a U.S. Citizen in 1992.
