I am the managing attorney at JCL Immigration Attorneys, PLLC. I enjoy practicing immigration law because I can help people realize their dreams of living in the U.S., leading a productive life, and raising their children in a safe environment where they can realize their potentials.
I work with both business and individual clients. I help my business clients with work visas and “green card” processes for their talented employees. I advise my business clients on I-9 and E-Verify issues to ensure they follow federal law. When they are audited by ICE, I help them mitigate any penalties and design a system that will be effective and manageable in the long run.
My individual clients come from various backgrounds. Some are investors seeking to open businesses in the U.S. and want to obtain E-1 or E-2 visas. Some are interested in EB-5 investment “green card” immigration. I also assist families with marriage-based and fiancée petitions, as well as filing petitions for parents, siblings, and other qualifying relationships. I help individuals apply for “extraordinary ability”, “national interest waiver,” and “outstanding scholars and researchers” petitions as well.
When I was managing a consular practice in Hong Kong for a New York based law firm from 2006 to 2008, I developed valuable perspectives and skills in working with U.S. consulates and embassies, which have been tremendously useful even now when I live in the U.S.
Outside of the office, I enjoy spending time with my family, reading a good book, or just watching silly sitcoms. Running, hiking, and biking are my favorite exercises.
