About Me :
I am the founder and managing attorney of Shah Peerally Law Group PC, a professional corporation (formerly known as the Law Offices of Shah Peerally).
Born on the small and beautiful island of Mauritius, Shah (AKA Nawaaz) attended the Royal College of Curepipe in Mauritius.
After working for different major corporations in Mauritius, I moved to the United States where I went to law school in San Francisco, California. After graduating from law school and passing the California State Bar Exam, Shah worked in litigation and business law for the prestigious law firm of McNichols Randick O’Dea & Tooliatos LLP, in Pleasanton, California.
Later, I joined the Law Offices of Virender Goswami as a supervising attorney in business and employment immigration. I was also attorney of counsel for the Immigration law offices of Minter and Ahmad in Fremont, California. In 2005, I founded the Law Offices of Shah Peerally. Since then, the law firm has expanded and is now represented as Shah Peerally Law Group, PC.
Fluent in French and Creole, I am a passionate and dedicated advocate. I am very active in the Muslim, Middle Eastern, South Asian and African communities. I regularly participate in lectures and free legal clinics. I have been commended by House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Congresswoman Barbara Lee for assisting in their immigration workshops.
I received my Juris Doctorate degree from New College of California School of Law, in San Francisco. I hold a membership in the State Bar of California, and the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA), National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA), and International Association of Professional Debt Arbitrators (IAPDA). I am also admitted in the Northern Federal District Court , Eastern Federal District Court of California and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
