Deirdre Nero is an Immigration Attorney (NERO Immigration Law in Coral Gables) with more than 16 years of experience helping hundreds of clients worldwide navigate the complicated world of immigration law.

Deirdre has also spent half her life with Alopecia Areata, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss on the scalp, face, and body. It affects over 6.8 million people in the U.S. of all ages, sexes, and ethnic groups. Deirdre proudly serves as the Secretary of the Board of Directors for the National Alopecia Areata Foundation (NAAF). She has been a Legislative Liaison and patient advocate for the foundation since 2012, frequently traveling to Washington, D.C. to advocate on NAAF’s behalf.

Deirdre has raised thousands of dollars for NAAF through fundraisers she has organized. She is the Miami Support Group Leader, holding monthly meetings and events for those with Alopecia Areata and their loved ones. She speaks frequently on Alopecia Areata awareness to various local businesses and civic organizations, and has published her story in a book called “Head-On: Stories of Alopecia.” Deirdre was honored to receive the Merrick-in-the-Making Community Builder award from the Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce for her work with NAAF.
