I’m thrilled to welcome Nadia Zaidi to the Alcorn team! She joined us as an associate attorney in November. Based in New York, Nadia’s focus is business immigration, particularly supporting individuals with extraordinary ability and in the national interest.
Nadia founded her own immigration law firm in New York in 2015. She was featured in Forbes for her expertise in immigration law services for startups.
“After more than five years as a solo practitioner, I wanted to be part of a team,” Nadia says about her decision to join the Alcorn 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.”
Nadia’s family and personal experiences inspired her passion for immigration law. Both of her parents immigrated to the United States from Pakistan to attend university. Her father studied civil engineering, and her mother studied pharmacy. “They both felt the United States offered the best education in the world that would open up many opportunities,” she says. Her parents eventually became U.S. citizens and started a family here.
Her father’s job led her family to live several years abroad, first in Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and then in Kuwait. They would visit family and friends in the U.S. during that time and even stayed for a few months during the first Gulf War. Her family repatriated to the U.S. when Nadia went off to university in Pennsylvania. She went on to earn her law degree at New York Law School. She worked as an immigration lawyer at large firms in New York for more than five years before opening up her firm.
“I find it very rewarding to help people pursue their life and career goals—to live their authentic selves,” Nadia says.
Nadia speaks Urdu, Hindi, and has knowledge of basic Arabic.
