Attorney Bio

BACKGROUND

With an eye for detail, uncompromising commitment to client satisfaction, and a robust understanding of immigration laws, Kapesh Patel (nicknamed “KP”) is focused on providing his clients the immigration solutions each case requires. Mr. Patel has an extensive educational background having graduated from Irvine Valley College with an Associate of Arts degree, California State University, Fullerton with a degree in Business Administration and a Master of Business Administration degree, and most recently, he graduated from the Howard University School of Law (ABA-Approved Law School) in Washington, DC in 2007 where he won an American Jurisprudence Award in Legal Accounting (highest grade in the class). His MBA uniquely suits him to handle EB-5 immigrant investor visas or E-2 Treaty-Investor visas, as they both require exceptional business plans.

Mr. Patel has taken and passed four bar (attorney licensing) exams, each on the first attempt – New York 2007, New Jersey 2008, Arizona 2011, and California 2011 (with California and New York widely regarded as the most difficult bar exams in the United States).

Additionally, Mr. Patel has a diverse work background, working with companies like Countrywide Financial Corporation (now doing business as Bank of America) in their Public Affairs Division, non-profits like the National Park Foundation, and government service with the United States Treasury Department’s Office of the Comptroller of the Currency as a federal regulator.

When you retain the services of the Law Offices of Kapesh V. Patel, you can take comfort that he will personally supervise your case from intake to conclusion. You can rest assured that you are using the services of a knowledgeable, resourceful, and fundamentally compassionate lawyer who is more interested in helping people achieve their own American Dreams versus running a “volume business”.

In his spare time, Mr. Patel enjoys watching American football, football/soccer (Mr. Patel was once himself an immigrant from the United Kingdom and is a avid supporter of the England National Football Team), volunteering (most recently with the Office of the Public Defender for Riverside County), exercising, and being an avid watcher of CNN. Mr. Patel also practices criminal law, a passion of his, with a focus on DUI defense in Orange County. You can visit his website at www.patelduilaw.com.
