About me

John Ting is a North Texas native who received his Juris Doctorate from The City University of New York School of Law.  John has spent time working with the Immigration Department of Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese in Newark, New Jersey, but has recently moved back to his home state to start up his own practice.  


Similar to being the legal voice for his clients, this year, John has teamed up with ATG Against The Grain Productions as Director of Fundraising.  ATG gives voice to significant, relevant and untold stories in our community – to promote awareness and unity of Asian American culture and identity.

  • Matthew David Wagoner

    Years ago, I worked with John while he was a law clerk in the Supreme Court, Queens County (NY). He demonstrated a strong work ethic, excellent legal acumen and instincts, and interpersonal skills (a rarity among attorneys). It's no surprise that he's become a successful practitioner and entrepreneur. I strongly endorse John.
