Karuna focuses her practice on U.S. employment and family-based immigration, partnering closely with her clients, both companies and foreign nationals, to provide custom immigration solutions. Karuna manages the firm’s individual case unit and is part of the firm’s EB-5 team.

As an immigrant who has personal experience with the U.S. Immigration Service, Karuna has worked extensively with individual and corporate clients on a wide range of immigration matters.

Her experience also includes supporting clients’ applications for naturalization, re-entry permits, and various family-based immigration matters. Karuna also has significant experience with the EB-5 Green Card process, having handled the preparation of hundreds of I-526 Petitions for clients from several countries, including India, South Africa, Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Turkey, United Kingdom, and China.

She focused on Permanent Residency and the PERM certification process. She also gained experience in preparing Audit responses and Motions for Reconsiderations, as well as the supervised recruitment process. In addition, she participated in counseling foreign nationals and employers regarding scope of H-1B and L-1B visas and filing requirements. Karuna also prepared foreign national employees for global assignments to member firms and provided insight on repatriation with respect to L-1A visa and potential EB-1 Green Cards processing.

Karuna received her Master’s in Law Degree (LLM) from Temple University in Philadelphia, PA and her Bachelor’s in Law (LLB) from Government Law College, Mumbai, India. Prior to migrating to the U.S., Karuna was a practicing attorney in India, with over 9 years of diverse experience. During this time, Karuna focused on corporate law practice, including litigation.
