    What people are saying about Shivani's work:

    Gesche Haas

    Founder of Dreamers//Doers,

    "I've worked with many many different lawyers, and for that

    reason, couldn't recommend Shivani more highly. She is

    straightforward, and cares so much, so sincerely, about the people

    she works with. You can't help but be ecstatic to discuss legal

    matters! I love her ability to focus on what's most important, and

    break it down in a way that is easy to understand, AND fun to

    process. Different from other lawyers, she moves very fast...while

    you feel others are most concerned with maximizing the hours you

    can bill. If you care about results, getting the job done,

    maximizing your ROI on legal investments, you couldn't make a

    better decision, than working with Shivani."

    Dionne Cochrane Perez

    Chic Classy Confident attendee

    "Going to the women's empowerment event Shivani organized and hosted left me recharged and excited about chasing my dreams again. I saw myself in all of the women who were on the panel that night and I wasn't so afraid anymore."

    Aine Rose Campbell

    Fashion model

    "Shivani is an extremely knowledgable and thorough attorney. I chose to work with her on my Green Card application because of her experience with fashion models, artists and celebrities in this area. Throughout the process, she delivered above and beyond her duties, and always answered any questions I had by email or over the phone very quickly.


    I have since sought her legal advice for a new business I was starting, which has proved to be invaluable.


    Shivani is both professional and personable, I could not be happier with my experience. I highly recommend her!"
