He is an Immigrant himself and he knows what it takes to be successful in United States. This is why he practices Immigration and that is why you want him to be your Immigration Lawyer for life.


He founded Rijal law firm with the needs of immigrant families and workforce in mind—immigrant community who are planning for a life of prosperity and who value comfort, convenience and future in this country. His firm is focused on providing clients the levels of service that a big law Firm is not able to provide – individualized professional attention. His fees are flat and fixed— and agreed upon in advance—so there are no surprises. More importantly, he believes that his client’s case is important to his clients and he assures that it is equally important to him. He values his clients as a fellow dreamer, a fellow entrepreneur, a fellow citizen and most importantly a fellow human being.


As an immigrant himself, Attorney Rijal strives towards being part of fixing our Immigration system. He is zealous in helping entrepreneurs and investors invest in US economy and help create jobs and opportunities for both the foreign investors and US.  An immigrant himself, Attorney Saurab Rijal from a young age, decided that he wanted to advocate for the people not adept at doing it for themselves. He understands the dream and works vigorously with all his clients as he knows what it means to have a legalized status in the US and eventually becoming a citizen of the US. He understands this because he has done it for himself and thousands of his clients.


After finishing his high school in Nepal, young Mr. Rijal arrived in United States as a foreign student for undergraduate studies.

He believes each case is unique and fact-specific and therefore treats every client and matter with individualized attention.
