Neetal Parekh has focused her legal practice on changing lives in powerful and positive ways. Licensed in 2012, her focus is on immigration law including naturalization, adjustment of status, and removal of conditions on residence. In addition to her legal practice, Neetal is also an expert on making a difference through social entrepreneurship, and the author of 51 Questions on Social Entrepreneurship. Neetal is a volunteer with Tacomaprobono and is certified in the emerging field of Conscious Contracts, which helps people and organizations design agreements to work together in alignment with their mission, values, and communication styles.
In her immigration practice, Neetal is passionate about helping clients reach their goals. “When you are new to a country, so many life decisions can be affected by your status – such as how and where to work, whether to enroll in school, when and where to get married and start a family, whether to buy or rent a home, and so much more,” she explains. “As these things slowly start coming into focus, you can make meaningful decisions about your life and work and pursue your goals and dreams. It’s an honor for me to help my clients adjust status or move forward in their immigration and citizenship journeys.”
The experience of being born to first generation immigrants has shaped how Neetal sees the world and fueled her passion for helping clients navigate the complex US visa and immigration process.
“I love connecting with communities from around the world,” Neetal says. “Empathy and compassion are high among people who’ve shared the experience of immigrating to the United States. They regularly adapt to uncertainty and new surroundings with incredible courage and resilience. The immigrant experience is really the American experience, and I am proud to be part of my clients’ stories.”
In her free time, Neetal enjoys spending time with friends and family and exploring nature and the vibrant community scene of Tacoma.
