NADIA ZAIDI PARTNER and FOUNDER

Nadia was born in the United States and grew up in the U.S., the Middle East and South Asia. She attributes her passion for immigration to her time traveling and living in different parts of the world and calling different countries her “home.” As a first generation American, the narratives surrounding migration and immigrants resonated with
her from early on in her legal career.

 

While building her professional resume, she focused on gaining expertise in the field of immigration law as an attorney with renowned immigration firm Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy. With the establishment of her private practice, Nadia aims to pass on her expertise in this specialized area of law to clients like you. Individuals who want to roam and those who want to call this country home.  While Nadia is based in New York City, she can provide immigration legal support to companies, organizations and individuals around the country and the world.
