Tamika Grace Jude, Esq., Attorney at Jude Law LLC, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field of law.
Since 2021, Ms. Jude has excelled as an attorney, working out of her own firm, Jude Law LLC, where she primarily focuses on immigration law—everything from removal defense to green cards—as well as the Violence Against Women Act. Attributing her success to being open and honest with her clients, she strives to always be available and fight as hard as she can for them, which, in turn, makes them feel comfortable and relaxed no matter how intense their cases are. She also utilizes the messaging outlet WhatsApp, as well as Facebook forums, in order to communicate with international clients and those located across the United States. Despite being a young and new figure in her field, she is extremely proud of attaining success and building a strong reputation in a short amount of time.
Originally from Dominica in the Caribbean, Ms. Jude gravitated toward her profession at a young age as the second of four children, serving as the one defending others who were in trouble. From early on, she was told that she was going to grow up to be a lawyer. Additionally, one of her cousins was a victim of domestic violence in high school. Witnessing the attitude that people had toward domestic violence, she saw that it was not an issue taken seriously at all—even by the police. From that moment, she was dedicated to advocating for victims in situations like this. Upon earning an Associate in Arts in history and English literature from Dominica State College in 2012, she taught for the Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica for two years and then, from 2015 to 2017, found success as a teaching assistant at the University of Virgin Islands, where she also obtained a Bachelor of Arts in criminal justice and psychology. She then immigrated to the United States, where she pursued her law degree at Barry University Dwayne O. Andreas School of Law; in the midst of her studies, she was active as a legal assistant for Jonathan Zucker’s Law Office in 2016 and 2018, became a certified legal intern for Barry Law Immigration Clinic in 2019, and was a legal assistant at the Law Offices of Restrepo & Gonzalez from 2019 to 2020. She earned a Doctor of Jurisprudence and a Master of Business Administration from Barry University in 2020 and 2021, respectively, and served as a law clerk for Johnson & Masumi, PC before starting her own firm.
A dedicated member of both the New Jersey Bar Association and American Bar Association, she was honored as part of Lawyers of Distinction in recognition of excellence in immigration law. Looking ahead, she hopes to see her practice grow with partners and at least five associates, and ultimately aspires to become an immigration judge.
