San Jose, California

San Jose, California, encompassing 180 square miles south of San Francisco, is one of the fastest growing cities in the country. Known worldwide as the “Capital of Silicon Valley” and the home of major technology companies such as Ebay and IBM, other major industries include construction and hospitality. With a multi-ethnic population of over 984,000, the city has an abundance of resources that contribute to the vibrancy of the city. Fans support professional sports teams the Sharks (NHL), Giants (minor league baseball), Sabercats (arena football), and Earthquakes (MLS). Families enjoy the Children’s Discovery Museum, Happy Hollow Park and Zoo, Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, and Winchester Mystery House. Year-round events at the SAP Center include Sharks and Sabercats home games, concerts, and international events. The performing arts contribute strongly to the culture of San Jose and include the Ballet Silicon Valley, Symphony Silicon Valley, Opera, Broadway, and Children’s Musical Theater. The continual influx of tourists and business travelers coming through San Jose, facilitated by the International Airport, large-scale event facilities, major hotels, and restaurants serving cuisine from around the world, contribute to the city’s strong economy. Served by a light-rail system, Cal-Train, and city buses, most major areas of the city are easily accessible by public transportation.

Mr. Inderjit Ahluwalia opened The Ahluwalia Firm in San Jose in 2008 to assist the diverse population of the south bay and peninsula with their needs for legal assistance in the area of immigration and naturalization. The Firm practices this area of law exclusively and has extensive experience successfully assisting businesses, families, and individuals in a variety of circumstances. We have strong ties to the San Jose community and Mr. Ahluwalia is especially proud of his pro bono work, for which he received the Volunteer Merit Award in 2012 on behalf of the Pro Bono Project of San Jose. Mr. Ahluwalia is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association and has represented clients before the USCIS, Department of Labor, Immigration Courts, Board of Immigration Appeals, and U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit.

As an immigrant himself, Mr. Ahluwalia is uniquely qualified to advise not only on the complexity of immigration law, but also on the stress the process brings. We will spend as much time as necessary advising you on the best option to meet your specific situation, as well as thoroughly explaining the costs involved. Many situations are time-sensitive and The Ahluwalia Firm works diligently to meet those deadlines.
