I recently had an emergency in which hastily I needed certain paperwork filed and shipped for me. I called Neil, and even though he had an already busy day, he rearranged his entire schedule to accommodate my case and told me swing to by his office. After an hour and a half my issue was promptly resolved and I had peace of mind. He was even very flexible in terms of a payment method, and needless to say, his rates are very fair as he is willing to go the extra mile for you. If you're in need of legal advice/assistance within the realm of immigration (among other things), and if you are in Fort Lauderdale, or even Miami all the way up to West Palm Beach, I implore you look no further, and give Neil Dhawan a ring. Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, and flexible, Neil will give you peace of mind, which is what we're all looking for ultimately when we need a lawyer.

I found Neil at the perfect time after I married my wife to help me get my residency and legal status in the US. He guided me in every step of the way to be able to comprehend and finish everything in a matter of about 3 months. Outstanding service, available basically any time through email and overall just very dedicated and passionate about what he does. Have recommended him to two of my personal friends and would recommend to 1 million more. 5/5 Stars for him.

Extremely knowledgeable and professional. Neil Dhawan knows immigration law inside and out---from everything to extending a visa to applying for a green card / citizenship. I would recommend any of my family/friends with the utmost confidence to Neil. If you have any questions regarding immigration, you should speak with Neil!

Niel has been a strong advocate for immigrants in our country. He is passionate about his role and is highly experienced. The process can be so confusing and overwhelming, but he really does a great job in taking control and explaining how everything works. He is an excellent attorney.

Fantastic results, these attorneys do a great job when you are in a pinch. I needed a Motion to Amend granted for a very old case, and Neil came through. I highly recommend them for any type of courtroom appearance.

Shupe Dhawan is an excellent law firm that focuses on immigration law, estate planning, probate and real estate. Neil Dhawan is one of the finest immigration attorneys around, there is no matter too big or small for him. Michelle Shupe is a rockstar in the estate planning and probate areas. I regularly send my clients to Neil and Michelle. Every client I send their way has contacted me and let me know of the amazing service and results that Shupe Dhawan provides. If you have any immigration, estate planning, probate matters, or real estate do no hesitate to contact Shupe Dhawan.

All too often, attorneys handle cases in an assembly line, rubber-stamp, sort of way. That is NOT the case with Shupe Dhawan. Having had the pleasure to call Neil and Michelle colleagues, and having seen them both in action, I would recommend them to anyone seeking competent and compassionate legal counsel. They are very well-versed in the arenas of immigration law, probate, estate planning, and real estate law inside and out. Neil and Michelle are approachable, hands-on, and passionate about what they do. Shupe Dhawan is simply one of the better law firms in South Florida.

Recently had the distinct pleasure to take advantage of Michelle's "5- Star" service in conclusion of my wife's probate for some property relinquishment there in Ft Lauderdale.Without doubt, she kept me advised with significantly more detail than expected or anticipated. In my book she was superb in every way... so my hat is truly off to her and the firm. I'd not hesitate to use them whatsoever... true expertise in every way! Alexander Umstead - KGSO

Neil assisted my wife and I with our immigration filing to get her permanent residency status. He was a consummate professional and always willing to pick up the phone or answer a question via email. I am a fellow attorney that doesn't specialize in immigration law and I'm glad we used his Firm! I recommend him highly to my own clients.
