Jordan Chelovich represents clients in a variety of immigration matters including family and employment-based petitions, applications for permanent residency, naturalization, and asylum.
Jordan’s interest in immigration law began after college, when she worked with foreign businesses and immigrant communities in Japan and New York City. She witnessed the challenges that immigrants face and developed a strong desire to advocate for those individuals. Her motivation to serve immigrant communities has only strengthened after working clients who have inspired and humbled her with their experiences.
Originally from Northwest Indiana, Jordan received her B.A. from Indiana University Bloomington in 2007. She obtained her J.D. from Valparaiso University Law School in 2015. While in law school, she served in the Immigration Clinic and received Honors for her work. She successfully represented an individual seeking asylum before the Chicago Immigration Court and assisted an unaccompanied minor in gaining legal status. From 2013 to 2016, she also worked as a legal intern with the Hoosier Environmental Council and fought for environmental justice by assisting in litigation for clients with claims arising under federal, state and local environmental laws. In 2016, she received her M.B.A from Valparaiso University.
Jordan is a member of the Illinois State Bar Association, Chicago Bar Association, and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. In addition to her practice, she also serves on the board of The Chicagoland Immigrant Welcome Network.
