I am currently an Associate Attorney at Wilner & O'Reilly. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Whittier Law School in 2016. While at Whittier, I was an editor on Whittier Law Review, had an article published in 2015, and earned a CALI award in Legal Writing. Before law school, I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and Public Law from the University of California, San Diego in 2012.
I currently work in our firm's employment-based practice where I primarily handle non-immigrant applications (such as H-1B, P-1, O-1, and TN visas), L-1 intra-company transfer visas for executives and managers, and E-2 treaty visas, as well as immigrant-visas for Aliens of Extraordinary Ability. I also have experience in family-based immigration matters and 601/601A waivers.
I grew up in Los Angeles with three older sisters and parents who were all refugees from Vietnam. I am a second-generation Vietnamese American and the first in my family to enter the legal field.
In my free time, I enjoy arts and crafts, reading, watching movies, and spending time with my dogs. I also enjoy hiking, traveling and trying new foods.
