Jennifer Hallett is the founding partner of Hallett McCann Law Group Ltd. and has practiced exclusively in the field of immigration law for over twenty years. Born and raised in the Chicagoland area, Jennifer has established a thriving practice with her law partner, Beata McCann, in Countryside, Illinois. While corporate immigration has long been her primary area of practice, Jennifer continues to dedicate a distinct portion of her practice to family-based immigration, naturalization, fiancé visas, DACA recipients, as well as asylum matters. Jennifer is admitted to practice before the Illinois Supreme Court and the Northern District of Illinois and is a member of the American Bar Association, American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA), and the Federal Bar Association. Over the past two decades, Jennifer has spoken extensively on the topic of immigration to state bar associations, community and religious not-for-profit organizations, as well as private organizations.
Jennifer completed her Juris Doctorate in 1998. She continued her legal education at the John Marshall Law School and obtained an LLM degree in International Business and Trade Law. Her LLM studies included an externship in Dublin, Ireland, under the auspices of the Supreme Court of Ireland. As a private attorney, Jennifer possesses a unique perspective on corporate immigration which is based on her professional experience. She started her legal career as an associate at a Chicago-based immigration practice. She later moved across the country to assume an in-house counsel position for a software development company. This change from a law office environment to a corporate setting provided Jennifer with a unique insight into the daily operations and needs of technology corporations within the United States. Her experience includes business-based immigration advocacy, corporate immigration compliance, immigration case management of petitions/applications, appeals, USCIS and DOL audit management, USCIS fraud investigations, I-9 audits, and Consular Processing.
