About me

Fiona is a highly acclaimed, award-winning immigration attorney based in Chicago, but working with clients all over the U.S. Having moved to the U.S. as an international student from Ireland, Fiona is very passionate about immigration law and advocacy, and entrepreneurship.    

She is nationally and internationally known for her work especially with the extraordinary ability visa and green card (O-1/EB-1A) and with immigration options for startups. Fiona was asked to submit a statement to Congress – the House Judiciary Committee’s Subcommittee on Immigration and Citizenship – on the need for a startup visa and how outdated U.S. immigration policies push top talent and startups to other countries.

Fiona was also successful in recently getting an International Entrepreneur Parole (IEP) case expedited and approved, likely in record time!  

Former Chair of the Media & Advocacy Committee for AILA National, Fiona frequently appears in national and international media including MSNBC, CNN, The New York Times, BBC, and the Times of India.  

Fiona is also an author, with publications including 'Our American Dream' and 'U.S. Immigration Options for Startups: Accelerate Your American Dream'.

Who should book a call?

Fiona works with startup founders, entrepreneurs, C-level executives, software engineers, ML engineers, data engineers, product managers, marketing managers, researchers, and scientists. She also works with a lot of creatives like content creators, influencers, authors, and those in art, music, dance, public policy, journalism, etc.  

Final note from Fiona: Some cultures (like Irish for example), lean more towards being humble to a fault. Don’t be put off by labels - you may be more extraordinary than you initially think. Lean into all your extraordinary-ness!
