Erica Chiodo, Esq.

Associate Attorney

Erica Chiodo is an in-house renaissance woman who can do it all. Having spent several years with our firm as a Law Clerk prior to becoming an Associate at Berardi Immigration Law, Erica has had a bird’s eye view of everything from NAFTA filings to Marriage Based Green Cards and everything in between. In addition to being our in-house expert on Derivative Citizenship matters, Erica also soars in preparing USCIS submissions (O-1s, L-1s, TNs) and ancillary filings as well as preparing Nonimmigrant Waiver applications. 

Erica contributes excellent research to our team and helps our firm stay up-to-date on the latest (and constant) changes to our practice area. She is a tremendous asset to our firm and we are beyond grateful to have her on our team!

Erica graduated from the State University at Buffalo Law School with a concentration in International Law in May 2020. During law school, Erica held many esteemed positions, including Executive Editor of the Buffalo Human Rights Law Review, a Teaching Fellow role, and membership in the Student Advisory Board for the Buffalo Human Rights Center. She has also served as an Immigration Extern at the Volunteer Lawyers Project and as an Intern with the New York State Attorney General’s Office in Buffalo, the 30th Judicial Circuit Court, and with Michigan State Senator Geoff Hansen.

Erica is a lover of all-things-Disney and enjoys spending time with her family in her downtime.
