Global Immigration Lawyer of the YearPro-Link GLOBAL is thrilled to announce its Co-Founder and CEO Andrea Elliott has been named the Global Immigration Lawyer of the Year by the 2017 Lawyer Monthly Women in Law Awards. This is the first-time Elliott has received this prestigious recognition.

The Lawyer Monthly Women in Law Awards celebrate and highlight the achievements of women in the legal profession across the globe. The Awards serve to recognize and reward female legal experts who have overcome challenges and influenced the wider legal profession in their jurisdiction. The winners include all areas and levels of the legal profession, from high-achieving junior associates to long-serving barristers.

The Global Immigration Lawyer of the Year award highlights Elliott’s distinguished legal career history, entrepreneurial achievements, and philanthropic excellence. Elliott grew up with philanthropic parents who instilled in her a commitment to give back to local communities and to improve the lives of those in need. Her adage is, “Live, love, laugh, and leave a legacy” and she is well on her way to a profound legacy.

With over 30 years of international immigration legal experience, Elliott and her husband founded Pro-Link GLOBAL in 2005 and built the organization into the world’s leading corporate immigration company. It was the first firm of its kind to embrace both bricks-and-mortar offices as well as a flexible virtual office model that allows employees to work from home or remotely.

Throughout her career, Elliott has infused passion and empathy into her business and legal case work. “When we’re handling an assignment for our clients, it’s critical that we remain empathic. We are guiding life-changing moments – not only for the employee moving to a new country, but for his or her spouse possibly giving up their career to make the move, and their children moving and changing schools. These are paramount events in a person’s life and it’s essential we are engaged and empathic for every single case.”

“Immigration law is my passion and I love what I do every day,” shared Elliott. “I am grateful for the Global Immigration Lawyer of the Year award and this opportunity to reflect on my achievements. As I look back, my trailblazing career journey has been rewarding but the road ahead is still even more exciting.”
