About Ayesha

Learn Ayesha’s areas of practice.

Ayesha Chidolue is the founder of The Chidolue Law Firm, PLLC, a law firm that services, businesses, families, and individuals. Ayesha’s whole life has been uniquely interwoven between the entrepreneurship path and immigrant experience. Coming from a long line of business owners including her 84-year-old grandmother who still owns a little jewelry shop in the eastern part of Nigeria and a mother who owns businesses in the United States, Ayesha learned entrepreneurship from an early age and became one herself for the first time when she started a wedding photography business while working full-time as a Securities Litigation Attorney on Wall Street in New York, so it’s safe to say business ownership runs in her DNA.

Additionally, as a first-generation immigrant, born to American educated Nigerian microbiology professor father and Nigerian pharmacist mother, who were both working in America on employment-based visas, she got to experience first hand the good fortune of United States citizenship by virtue of her birth in this country. However, her youngest brother was not so lucky and was born after her family relocated back to Nigeria and it took him 16 long years from the onset of his application to become a U.S. Green Card holder although his entire family had all become United States citizens. To say that it was a long, painful and frustrating journey would be an understatement. This was the catalyst that led her to her quest of helping other individuals, families and businesses on their journey of immigrating and living the American dream by providing effective legal counsel and direction in making that dream a reality.

These experiences collectively are why Ayesha Chidolue provides a dynamic and diverse approach to various small businesses and immigration needs. As an entrepreneur and an immigrant, Ayesha understands the intricacies involved in getting a start-up business up and running as well as the opportunities that this great United States provides through legal immigration for both investors, families, students, and individuals with extraordinary or exceptional talent like her own father and mother.

Ayesha Chidolue has been a licensed attorney since 2006. She is a graduate of The George Washington University Law School, and also holds a Masters in Human Resources from Rollins College. Ayesha is currently licensed to practice law in the state of Florida and New York.

Ayesha is a proud member of the Seminole County community, where she currently lives and practices law. In her free time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two daughters, taking photographs, party planning and trying new restaurants.

Super Helpful and Resourceful!
We reached out to Ayesha and she offered a free 15 min consultation call which ended up lasting about 25 mins with all our questions. She answered them all, provided guidance and pointed us in the right direction regarding next steps. We will definitely retain her for our business services. Thanks Ayesha!

Hard working attorney
I cant be happier that I found Mrs. Ayesha Chidolue! I was in the process of signing a commercial lease for the first time and I am glad that I had Ayesha as my attorney. Immediately after the consultation, she went right to work! She clarified parts of the lease that I didnt understand and negotiated on my behalf. She really looks out for her clients best interest. I look forward to working with Ayesha again in the future!

MY Review on hiring Attorney Ayesha
I hired Ayesha for several of my legal transactions. Ayesha advised and assisted me in selecting a legal business entity for my pharmacy's expansion location in a new state, forming a foreign LLC for me and a DBA. She also reviewed and negotiated my commercial lease agreement to my satisfaction. I found her very relate able and easy to talk to . She was very thorough and spent time explaining all the details while breaking down all the legal jargon for me. She comes highly recommended and will be my go to lawyer from now on. Emily

The best business lawyer period!
Ayesha Chidolue is my business lawyer and I have to say working with her has been a wonderful experience. She has proved herself to be more than competent in her field of expertise and that is one of the reasons I only work with her. For someone like me, a business owner, Ayesha never fails to explain legal terms and other involved details clearly and concisely to ensure I understand things in relation to my business. Most importantly, I trust her 100% and the results of everything I have worked with her on have always been exceptional. I am continuously recommending her to all the business owners I know because she is simply top tier.
