The daughter of two Indian immigrants, Sharvari P. Dalal-Dheini has always had a personal interest in life outside our borders.

“Growing up in two different cultures, it makes me appreciate what we have here,” said Dalal-Dheini, an immigration lawyer who spent time with the Peace Corps in Africa before she joined Baltimore-based Whiteford, Taylor & Preston. “The way we live in the U.S. is not the way the rest of the world lives.”
