Lena Korial-Yonan

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. She is the daughter of hard working immigrant parents who instilled in her the “immigrant” work ethic. Her parents, both over the age of 65, still work full time operating their businesses. 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. She was a member of the Journal of International Law in law school.



After working for an immigration law firm in Tampa, Florida, she returned to her home town of Jacksonville, Florida to start her own immigration law firm. Lena is a member in good standing of the Florida Bar and is licensed to practice Federal immigration law throughout the United States. Lena is also a member of the American Bar Association and AILA (American Immigration Lawyers Association), the foremost professional organization for immigration lawyers.



Lena represents clients all over the U.S. and around the world in all aspects of U.S. immigration law. She speaks Arabic.
