Rashmi K. Shah is of counsel in the Raleigh, North Carolina, office of Jackson Lewis P.C. Her practice focuses on providing counsel on immigration matters to support building a globally diverse and talented workforce for her clients. Rashmi always knew she wanted to practice immigration law. She remembers what it was like for her family to immigrate to the United States from the United Kingdom when she was young. She uses that personal perspective to connect and resonate with clients in similar situations. Her own status evolved from L-2, to legal permanent resident, to a U.S. citizen. Rashmi has a reputation as a community leader in immigration law, providing advice to an array of companies, entrepreneurs, students, artists, athletes and researchers. She supports and guides clients with the preparation and process of nonimmigrant visa petitions, employment-based residency petitions, extraordinary ability and national interest waiver applications, family-based petitions, and the naturalization process.
