Neeru Kalra
Associate Attorney

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Neeru always had a passion for helping others. Prior to law school, Neeru worked for Heritage Education Funds, Inc., where she spent time counseling and advising parents and children on different ways to fund education opportunities. Realizing that her calling was to be an attorney, Neeru attended law school in England. While there, she realized that she had a passion for the interplay between various countries, specifically with respect to individuals coming and leaving the country on both a temporary and permanent basis. Neeru began reading and studying about immigration, specifically with respect to her home country of Canada. Recognizing an increase in individuals wanting to move to Canada, Neeru made it a personal goal to become well-versed in that field. Following law school and in order to fulfill Canada's licensing requirements, Neeru worked as an Articling Student for Saini Law Firm in Toronto. While there, Neeru worked on both real estate and immigrations matters, before eventually moving to Chicago to be with her husband. After arriving in Chicago, Neeru volunteered for the Young Center for Immigrant Children as a Human Rights Child Advocate and completed a Canadian Immigration Consultancy Program. Recognizing that the legal market was extremely competitive, Neeru began looking for opportunities in order to bring her niche knowledge to the appropriate law firm in Chicago. In January 2015, Neeru joined Parikh Law Group as an associate attorney licensed to practice law in Ontario, Canada. Having a need for an immigration attorney and going through a growth phase, Parikh Law Group was happy to add Neeru to its growing team.

Currently, Neeru leads the firm's immigration practice and continues to work to grow and develop that practice area. Having strong ties to both the US and Canada, Neeru has single-handedly transformed Parikh Law Group from a small-town presence to an international law firm. Licensed in Canada, Neeru assists individuals wanting to visit, work, or live (permanently or temporarily) in Canada. Leveraging Canada's unique immigration system, Neeru has assisted clients by finding an innovative and appropriate approach to achieving and exceeding the goals of her clients. Additionally, Neeru, alongside her Illinois-licensed colleagues, has helped many clients in obtaining permanent residency status, employment visas, and citizenship in the US. Neeru is proficient in English, Hindi and Punjabi and enjoys working with both employers and individuals to handle all of their immigration needs. You can often read Neeru's articles in India Tribune and find her spending time with friends and family. Neeru continues to grow and develop her US and Canada immigration knowledge by reading, writing, and attending conferences and seminars in order to stay abreast of development in the law.
