Minsky, McCormick & Hallagan, P.C. is pleased to announce that our partner Beata Leja has been selected as one of the 2018 “40 Under Forty” Illinois attorneys to watch by Law Bulletin Media, the only immigration attorney honored this year and in the last several years.
Every year, Law Bulletin Media, the publishers of Chicago Lawyer magazine and the Chicago Daily Law Bulletin, conducts a survey to recognize the most talented young lawyers in Illinois. Nominees are selected out of more than 1,000 entries based on their intelligence, passion, willingness to help the community through pro bono and other civic endeavors, and professional accomplishments. “Deeply knowledgeable. Ethical. Creative. And passionate. Those are the words that the peers of Beata Leja use to describe this immigration lawyer.” Clients put their faith in her because she takes pride in finding solutions to their complex problems, often “finding solutions for clients who have already been turned away by other lawyers.” Her profile in the publication is available here.
Outside of work, Beata is also an Adjunct Professor teaching Business Aspects of Immigration Law at John Marshall Law School and serves on the Board of Directors for the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights, a national human rights nonprofit organization that advocates for the rights and best interests of the neediest immigrant children in deportation proceedings. Please join us in congratulating Beata on this honor!
