Trisha Chokshi is a partner at Chokshi Filippone Law, LLC. She concentrates her practice in the areas of immigration law, residential real estate, and estate planning. 

 

Ms. Chokshi previously served as the Constituent Services Advocate and Grants Coordinator for U.S. Representative Tammy Duckworth of Illinois’ 8th Congressional District. In her role, Ms. Chokshi served as the primary liaison with federal agencies on behalf of constituents regarding matters related to immigration. She also assisted organizations, agencies, and municipalities that were seeking federal grants.

 

Prior to law school, Ms. Chokshi was a human rights activist with the Midwest Coalition for Human Rights. As coordinator of the Immigration Detention Project, Ms. Chokshi collaborated with Coalition members to support regional and national reform efforts to ensure a more humane immigration detention system consistent with international human rights standards. She has also held positions at the Office of the Illinois Attorney General, Civil Rights Bureau, and the Office of the State Appellate Defender.

 

Ms. Chokshi graduated from Northern Illinois University College of Law and received her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science from DePaul University. During law school, she served as the Editor-in-Chief of the Northern Illinois University Law Review and wrote articles that were published in both the Review and local bar association journals.

 

As a child of two immigrant parents who traveled from India to the United States to achieve the American dream, Ms. Chokshi understands that it was the hard work and dedication of her parents that contributed to her success. Her story is similar to that of countless other families who have relatives or have themselves traveled to the United States in hopes of achieving their own version of the American dream.  At Chokshi Fillipone Law, LLC, Ms. Chokshi works to ensure her clients have the best legal representation possible in order to navigate the complex legal system.
