Attorney Lena Korial-Yonan, who is herself an immigrant from the Middle East, founded our law firm. Lena came to the U.S. when she was only seven years old from Iraq. She did not know any English at all. Upon coming to America, Lena grew up in Jacksonville, Florida where she eventually attended Bishop Kenny High School.

Her family is also socially active in the St. Ephrem’s Catholic Syriac Church. Lena knew she wanted to be an immigration attorney since she was 12 years old, inspired in her because of her own personal experiences of immigrating to this country.
Lena graduated Magna Cum Laude with both a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science and also a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from Loyola University of Chicago. Lena then attended the University of Florida, Levin College of Law located in Gainesville, Florida where she graduated law school in the year of 2000 with Honors.
