Drew Elesh has been practicing law since 1996. He chose immigration law because it allows him to use his knowledge to help people who are truly in need. He also has a personal connection to immigration law: his wife is Japanese.
He understands that immigration matters can be stressful on families and can even tear families apart if they are not handled correctly. Drew finds immense satisfaction in helping people overcome immigration obstacles to reach a place where they are in a better position to achieve success.
Licensed to practice in Illinois in 1996, Drew was trained in immigration law by American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and has attended many Federal Bar Association seminars in Chicago, Miami, Memphis, and more.
