Minsky, McCormick & Hallagan P.C. (MMH) partner Tahreem Kalam has joined founders James Hallagan and Margaret “Peggy” McCormick, and shareholder Beata Leja, as a shareholder in the firm.
MMH was founded in 1975 by Joseph (Joe) Minsky (1928-1992). In 1986, Jim and Peggy merged their partnership into Joe Minsky’s firm with a goal toward building a larger firm, capable of accepting a broader range of cases. Over the decades, MMH has expanded its practice and has been recognized by many organizations as a premier Chicago immigration law firm and one of the top immigration law firms in the country.
Tahreem, an immigrant herself, came to the U.S. with her family at the age of 4. Growing up in a community of immigrants, she witnessed first-hand the meaning of a “seeking a better life” and the sacrifices immigrants make to achieve this goal.
Tahreem joined MMH in 2014 after graduating from DePaul University College of Law. She has been named a Rising Star in Immigration by Super Lawyers Magazine for the past 5 years. In 2020, while navigating the challenges of being an advocate during the Covid-19 pandemic, Tahreem was named a partner at MMH. Now, the firm is proud to have Tahreem join the ranks as shareholder with Jim, Beata, and Peggy.
Tahreem focuses her practice on business immigration with extensive experience with H-1B visas, L-1 visas, TN visas, H-1B1 visas, B-1 visas, and the various employment-based green card processes (PERM, EB-1, EB-2, EB-3). She has significant experience working with executive, managerial, and specialized knowledge individuals, as well as high-skilled workers. She is also experienced with religious worker visas, family-based green card petitions and naturalization (citizenship). Tahreem manages the immigration cases for hundreds of foreign national employees at large international corporate clients, as well as small local employers. She has significant experience working with clients in the tech, architecture, and insurance industries
Tahreem prides herself on being an immigrant, a wife, a mother, and an advocate, all of which define and influence her role as shareholder at MMH.
MMH is proud of our legacy having served thousands of immigrants over the last 46 years and look forward to continuing our work for decades more under Tahreem’s leadership. Please help us in congratulating her on this achievement.
