In two years, they have gained over 1600 clients and become a reputed firm in South Auckland.
Raj truly understands the concerns of many migrants and local community members. His staff and solicitors hold a zeal for solutions and are able to transcend cultural and language barriers to provide quality legal advice to its clients.
Raj specialises in immigration, employment and criminal law, representing local ethnic communities from India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Fiji and Pacific Islanders and residents of Manukau East, Manurewa and Mangere East.
He wants to share his professional success by giving his community a voice and representing them in parliament through his work with the Green Party. He is passionate about policy, law, effective communication and leadership, education and immigration.
Raj takes pride in his diverse team which reflects the multicultural landscape of New Zealand. The journey so far has been rewarding and Raj and Ashima only have their clients, business partners and wider community to thank for their success. Giving back to the community has always been an important part of the work, which is why Raj often offers legal education seminars to communities.
