Anu Peshawaria Speaking

Interested in making an instant impact on U.S. soil, Anu immediately started SevA Legal Aid, a non-profit organization with a mission to make the immigrant community in the U.S. aware of issues concerning U.S. laws, social issues, frauds, and domestic violence. SevA Legal Aid has already held workshops on Immigration laws and procedures, Indian matrimonial issues and Patents Law, empowering common people in topics and issues that touch them in everyday life.

Eager to continue broadening her horizons, she completed her Cyber Law Program in 2000 and got her U.S. Laws Certification in 2003, both awarded by Santa Clara University in California. To round out her education, Anu then completed her Executive Management Program from Stanford University.

New immigrants often face socioeconomic, matrimonial, and cultural problems so Anu continues to bridge the gap between this critical need and provide an essential service for people across the US, China, Vietnam, India, Fiji, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, and Pakistan.

With her wealth of knowledge in the legal realm, Peshawaria has dedicated her life to staying in the U.S. to tackle Immigration and Women's issues after seeing the plight of those affected by physical and emotional abuse. Through her work she has documented their isolation, dependence and mental and physical abuse so far from home, family and support systems.

In recognition of her accomplishments, the Government of India saw fit to appoint Anu their first legal advisor appointed to the U.S. Embassy in Washington D.C. 

Today, Anu Peshawaria is an internationally recognized Indian-American U.S. immigration law advisor, author, activist, and philanthropist who is devoted to the advocacy and protection of legal rights on a global scale.
