Lead Attorney

The life and career of Nadia Roife spans cultures and continents. An immigrant herself, Nadia was born in Russia, raised in Israel and finished high school in Canada. Nadia earned a Bachelor of Arts from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where she graduated with honors. She came to the United States in 2004 and attended law school at William Mitchell College of Law in St. Paul Minnesota. Nadia has actively practiced in the area of immigration law since 2007 and in the area of social security disability since 2009. As a consequence of her international life and education, Nadia speaks Russian, French, Hebrew, Arabic, and — with the help of her staff — Spanish.

Nadia is an experienced and tenacious advocate for her clients. She assertively represents immigrant and disabled clients before the Executive Office for Immigration Review, US Customs and Immigration Services, Board of Immigration Appeals and the Office of Disability Adjudication and Review. Nadia’s practice has led her to be attentive to both physical and mental disabilities of her clients, either in immigration or disability disciplines. Nadia has co-written many Board of Immigration Appeals briefs as well as several Eight Circuit Court of Appeals briefs. When not working, Nadia enjoys spending her time running outdoors and keeping up with her son Isaac “Ike” Leo.
