About Us

Basso & Khare LLC is a premier law firm based in Jersey City, NJ, serving individuals, entrepreneurs, small businesses, startups, community activists and families locally and globally.  We focus on employment law and litigation, immigration matters, and the legal needs of small businesses and nonprofit organizations that make up our growing community.

At Basso & Khare, we believe the concepts of “public interest” and “private business” are not mutually exclusive.  Whether you are an employee trying to get a fair shake from your employer or a budding entrepreneur sponsoring talent from abroad, Basso & Khare is here to serve you.  As your advocates, the attorneys at Basso & Khare push for the robust enforcement of civil rights laws and workplace protections.  At the same time, we ourselves are residents and business owners in the diverse Jersey City community and strive to contribute to its growth by helping new and small businesses understand their legal obligations and recruit and retain top talent. 

We are employment lawyers.  We are immigration lawyers.  We are community lawyers.

Our Firm’s attorneys understand that effective legal service requires dedication, sophistication, and creativity.  We believe clients deserve better than “one size fits all” approaches to conflict and that heading to the courthouse is just one possible tool for protecting clients’ interests.  Direct negotiations and mediation can be just as—if not more—effective for achieving clients’ goals, and often swifter and less expensive than litigation. 

We also provide superior transactional services to meet our clients’ short-term and long-term needs.  When our Firm’s attorneys meet with you, they will make sure you are aware of all your legal options and the pros and cons of each approach, so that you can make informed decisions.  We, at Basso & Khare, are driven to provide superior legal services without compromising customer service.  We take pride in our work and strive to offer our clients’ competitive and reasonable rates for our services. Our clients choose us based on our efficiency, affordability and reliability.

Our Firm’s founders, Peter Basso and Roli Khare Rastogi, are motivated by a passion for solving problems and supporting local and global community initiatives.  The have both provided counsel and strategy to community-based organizations, including places of worship, ethnic and neighborhood organizations, and the local LGBT community.  Basso & Khare actively promotes legal education and outreach through community legal clinics and speaking engagements.  For compelling causes, the Firm at times takes pro bono and “low bono” cases to help victims of domestic violence, forced marriage, and human rights abuses.

Basso & Khare is conveniently located near the Grove Street PATH station in downtown Jersey City, New Jersey.  Whether you are coming from Jersey City, Hudson County, New York City or beyond, we are easily reached by public transportation, car or bicycle.  Our office is wheelchair accessible.  We welcome any inquiries you might have regarding our services.  To learn more about Basso & Khare LLC, or to set up a consultation, call us at 201-620-6720 or email us at info@bassokhare.com.
