In 1979, subsequent to the Islamic revolution of Iran, Nadia immigrated to the United States and continued her studies in Management at Purdue University. Upon graduating in 1982, Nadia earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management with a minor in Industrial Engineering. She then moved to California, settling in San Francisco.
In San Francisco, Nadia was employed by the Electrical Contractors Bid Depository. Although Nadia was hired to be an Administrative Assistant, she was quickly promoted to be the Office Manager. In 1987, Nadia decided to continue her education and pursue her passion of assisting other immigrants. Nadia enrolled in law school and maintained a full-time work schedule. In 1990, Nadia earned a Doctorate of Jurisprudence. In 1991, she was admitted to the State Bar of California.
With the intention of building an immigration practice at the firm, in 1992, Nadia joined the Law Offices of Kayhan S. Shakib. While there, Nadia’s caseload also included matters of personal injury and business litigation. In 1994, Nadia decided to pursue her own practice and formed The Law Office of Nadia Farah, P.C., working exclusively in the area of Immigration and Nationality Law.
Nadia is passionate about her practice and says “I am blessed to have been exposed to the best of both worlds of East and West; raised with the Middle Eastern culture, where family and tradition are highly valued, and the Western culture where liberty and freedom are emphasized. I want to see others experience the same.” In her 22+ years of practice, Nadia has dedicated her career to helping Immigrants of all nationalities and origins join their loved ones, which often times includes vigorously defending immigrants in removal proceedings. Believing it to be one of the principles of the United States, Nadia works diligently towards the goal of uniting diverse cultures.
