I first came to this country when I was 10 years old from India along with my family. At the time, I was far too young to know or appreciate the significance of the experience that I was facing. I knew only that I wanted to see snow.
Quickly as I moved, I realized that there were so many things that were new and different about the United States. I started asking questions about our own traditions and learning more deeply about myself and my heritage through these questions. Like many young immigrants, I was also bullied by some classmates. These experiences made an impact and made me respect and honor the journey that immigrants face when they decide to move from a place and country that is familiar to a place and country that is entirely new.
I decided to go to law school because to me, learning the law was very empowering. Through the legal system, we get the protections and the rights that are provided to each individual in the United States. However, until we learn it, it seems scary and difficult to comprehend. I wanted to understand the legal system to learn the rules of our country.
After graduating from Loyola University Chicago School of Law, I realized that I needed to help empower other immigrants who are also faced with the enormous challenge and possibilities opened by moving to a new and unfamiliar country.
To this day, it is this passion that drives me each and every day. Watching my clients succeed gives me strength. To this success, I am committed. I am also committed to creating the type of law firm that supports clients in achieving their immigration goals and looks beyond just an “application” or a “case” but in context of the individuals for whom the case is handled. One that makes immigrants feel accepted, honored, and empowered. With this in mind, I decided to name my law firm, SwagatUSA. “Swagat” means “welcome” in Sanskrit.
Passionate about immigration law and assisting immigrants in achieving their goals. I believe that there are no simple immigration cases and every immigration case begins with a STRATEGY. See my video introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OZ-ms-1V3C0

My parents immigrated to the United States in the 1970s to pursue what most people coming to the United States want: The American Dream. My father is a physician, my mother a biochemist, and I witnessed firsthand how, through their hard work and perseverance, they became lawful permanent residents and, ultimately, proud citizens of the United States.
Immigration, as a result, has been at the forefront of my consciousness since my childhood.

The Hassonjee Law Firm is a full service business and immigration law firm operating since 1995 with an experienced and dedicated staff. Our staff includes attorneys and administrative personnel who have been with the law office for a number of years and are dedicated to helping you achieve your immigration goals by looking for positive and creative solutions to your legal needs.
We offer legal services to meet the transactional needs of small to medium size companies. We also offer a range of immigration services for family based and employment based immigrant and non-immigrant visas.
Our office has numerous domestic and foreign clients. We work with both domestic as well as international companies in helping set-up companies in the US, drafting relevant agreements as well as helping them navigate the US business and immigration systems. We provide comprehensive advice on the laws regarding business transactions in the US and hiring immigrant employees.
Over the past decade we have helped countless families get visas to the US, get extensions to their current status, file change of status applications, get green cards and citizenship. We have prepared and filed hundreds and hundreds of non-immigrant E visa petitions, H-1B petitions, L petitions, Business and Visitor’s visa (B1 and B2) extensions applications, R visa petitions, O/P visa petitions, TN petitions as well as permanent labor certification applications and employment based as well as marriage based green card applications.
Entrepreneurs often have unique and exciting ideas for purchasing and operating new or existing businesses. Our law office is experienced in assisting new immigrant entrepreneurs with their visa processes, whether they relate to a nonimmigrant investment visa like the E visa that enables one to own their own business and live and work in the US or an intra-company transfer of a Multinational Manager or person with Specialized Knowledge from a foreign company to their US office or an investment application for permanent residence based on the EB5 category.
We can help people looking to work in the US to get proper status that enables them to work with appropriate authorization like the H-1B or H-2B visas, the TN visa, the L visa, the O visa or P visa and of course if someone is affiliated with a religious non-profit organization then an R visa for a religious minister or religious worker.
Employment based applications very often require the employer and employee to engage in the PERM or Permanent Labor Certification process which is filed with the US Department of Labor or the National Interest Waiver application or Extraordinary Ability Alien application which may be filed directly with the USCIS. We have helped hundreds of individuals traverse these complicated processes with tremendous success.
Of course, we also assist in the final step of many immigrants journey navigating the US immigration process, Naturalization and Citizenship. We represent individuals in preparation and filing of the Naturalization Application and representation at the Naturalization Interview. If the USCIS is taking longer than usual to process your Naturalization application there are some limited avenues available to get the USCIS to expedite processing of your application. We provide experienced legal representation all the way.
Being an immigrant myself, I have been closely involved with the immigration process from nearly every vantage point. I understand how complicated and daunting the process can seem to those unfamiliar with the law and have seen the joy that comes from a successful outcome -- be it work authorization, asylum, a green card, or U.S. citizenship. And, above all, I know how important it is for individuals, families, and employers to have an immigration attorney they can trust and understands first-hand how complicated the immigration process can be. This personal familiarity with the immigration process, together with my extensive professional training and experience, make me a compassionate and effective advocate in immigration matters. I am eager to offer my significant skills and knowledge to help individuals, families, and employers with their immigration needs.

I was born and brought up in Zambia, Africa, and studied in South Africa, Florida and Michigan before settling back into private practice in Tampa.
My predominant practice areas include civil, business and real estate litigation, family law, and immigration law. I represent individuals, families, and corporate entities of all sizes. While providing aggressive and zealous representation, I navigate the complex litigation process to provide my clients with a clear understanding of their options to litigate their cases through trial or negotiate favorable out-of-court pre-trial settlements, often through court-ordered and private mediations. I employ a no-nonsense, practical and collaborative approach to minimize the lasting effects of divorce on my clients and their families, and further, having gone through both the employer-based and family-based immigration routes myself, I take great pride in representing immigration clients as I can personally relate to the difficulties of the immigration process, some of which can be particularly intimidating.
My most gratifying work was my involvement in a legal aid program that encompassed a 17-county area extensively representing indigent victims of domestic violence, and assisting with immigration petitions for asylum seekers from war-torn countries in Africa.

After I received my Juris Doctor from Georgia State University, I went on to practice in various fields of law but in 2006 entered the ever changing world of immigration law and found I most enjoyed helping people achieve the American Dream and remain in this country through employment based immigration, family based immigration and some even through a positive result in a removal hearing.
