Sharon and Kalnoki
Sharon & Kálnoki, LLC is a full-service Immigration Law practice. Our attorneys, paralegals and legal assistants are dedicated to providing professional, timely and cost-effective service. Our commitment to quality service has earned us the respect of clients, government agencies and colleagues. We take pride in a job well done.

Sharon & Kálnoki, LLC was established in 2000 by attorneys who had worked together for many years in one of the largest immigration law firms in the Midwest. The two most senior attorneys, Michael Sharon and Anikó Kálnoki, left that firm with the chief paralegal, Terri Adamczyk, and established a legal practice with the vision to serve clients’ immigration needs in an efficient, responsive and effective manner. The firm has grown to include a legal team that has the knowledge and experience to provide the professional representation our clients need and deserve.

We are active in the legal community and in civic organizations volunteering our time and expertise to further professional development and humanitarian causes. Our attorneys are frequent speakers at professional associations, business organizations and pro bono organization meetings.

We are proud to have represented individual and corporate clients throughout the country. We look forward to an exciting future.
