Rohit Turkhud, a Partner in FGI, has been practicing immigration law for over thirty years with an abated passion for helping clients achieve their aspirations. “The look of happiness on people’s faces and their emails of expressions of gratitude when they achieve their immigration goals, whether they are short term or long term,” he says, “is quite satisfying. And it allows me to interact with people – a huge plus for me.”
Formerly a Partner with Nallaseth & Turkhud PLLC, Rohit joined FLG in 2012 where he specializes in IT industry-based and EB-5 (immigrant investor) visas. He authors a column on immigration law for the North American edition of India Today and has contributed articles to the PERM Book (ILW.com: 2017). Rohit is also a frequent participant at ILW and Forum for Expatriate Management (FEM) conferences where he has presented on PERM and EB-5 visas. In addition, he hosts a bi-weekly immigration show on Jus Punjabi, a national cable network channel in India. Fluent in Hindi, Gujarati, and Marathi and a world traveler, Rohit sees his practice as one of continuous learning: “I am a continuing student. I am lucky enough to have colleagues who may know some aspects of the law in greater detail;” although, he says that “I have the ability to offer the ‘broader’ vision and spot issues quite well.”
Rohit earned a Bachelor in Communication and an LL.B., both from the University of Mumbai. He completed an LL.M. at the Law School at the University of Pennsylvania. A member of the American Immigration Lawyers Associations (AILA), Rohit is licensed in the state of New York. As a Partner, Rohit sees his professional goals as ensuring “that FGI earns the reputation of consistently providing the best customer service to each client.” In his spare time, he enjoys travel, music, reading, and spending time with his family.
