I find it very rewarding to help people pursue their life and career goals—to live their authentic lives.
Both of my parents came to the United States from Pakistan to do just that. They both felt the United States offered the best education in the world that would open up many opportunities. My father earned his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in civil engineering in the U.S. and my mother studied pharmacy here. They lived in the U.S. long enough to become U.S. citizens and start a family here.
My family moved to Pakistan in 1982. We moved to Kuwait in 1990, when my father took on a project there. During our time living abroad, we would return to the U.S. often to visit family and friends. During the first Gulf War, we lived in Pakistan for a few months before returning to Kuwait. My passion for immigration comes from being a first-generation American and living in different parts of the world.
My family eventually returned to the U.S. when I went off to college. I earned my bachelor’s degree in business at Temple University. After earning a law degree from New York Law School, I worked in human rights and as an immigration attorney at large firms before founding my own immigration law firm in New York in 2015. I was featured in Forbes for my expertise in immigration law services for startups and creatives.
After more than five years as a solo practitioner, I wanted to be part of a team. A women-owned, women-led firm with the same values and mission I believe in is the perfect fit. I’m happy to be part of the Alcorn Team, which offers immigration services with compassion and high ethical standards. I will continue to work remotely from New York.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my two daughters and my husband, who is an entrepreneur and founded his own startup. I’m an avid reader, mostly of fiction. Reading really opens up your mind and helps you learn about people, things, and places that you might not come across in real life. I also dabble in my own private creative writing and practice yoga.
