About Henry

Learn Henry’s areas of practice.

I am a proud to have graduated from St. John’s University School of Law in Jan. 1999 (my last semester was in Dec. 1998). I am currently exploring a career change, so even though my profile will remain mostly the same on this Avvo platform, I have not provided consultations with any potential clients in the recent past. Prior to my law school enrollment, I graduated from New York University (College of Arts & Science) where I was a Double Major in these 2 subjects: 1) Spanish Literature;  2) Political Science. 

This might sound like a longshot, but if anyone reads my Avvo profile in response to any change-of-career position that I've applied for, please read the reviews that my clients have left about me on my profile. Other persons who might have written reviews about me are those who read the answers that I wrote over the years in response to questions that were posted on Avvo by viewers of this website that were seeking legal guidance & direction.

Thank you for reading my Avvo profile & if you are in the middle of a legal dilemma, it is my hope that you find the answers that you are seeking!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am currently on the Alumni Board of Directors at the law school I used to attend. Prior to attending law school, I attended New York University and I was a double major in Political Science and Spanish language studies. I graduated from NYU in 1994.

In addition to practicing law, I am also enrolled at Bethel Seminary of the East and someday (meaning before I get sent to an old-folks’ home), I hope to obtain a Master’s Degree in Divinity Studies.

I am proud to be a Baptist and I advertise in the Shepard’s Guide, which is a ‘Yellow Pages’ for Christians of all denominations. There is a link on this website that will show you what my ad looks like. This ad helps to describe the kind of person that I am and how I treat my clients.

I am a life-long resident of Long Island. I graduated from the Herricks School District in 1990.

Very Resourceful With Employment Law
I contacted Mr. Henry Lung on behalf of my son who separated from his previous employer. The previous employer contested my son's NYS Unemployment claim. I contacted Mr. Lung who was one of the attorneys recommended by the Dept. of Labor for employment issues. Mr. Lung was generous with his time and insights in helping my son understand his rights as well as the merits of his case. My son won his case and the added confidence that he gained from Mr. Lung was a key contributor to the successful outcome.

Henry is King!
Henry was hired for my divorce case after my previous lawyer dragged her feet and took all of my money and did nothing for me. Upon meeting Henry, I knew from his confidence and knowledge that he was the man for the job of pushing my case along. I was right - Henry has pushed my case faster in 2 months than my last lawyer did in 6 months. I know that I can get into contact with Henry at any given time, as he is extremely passionate about his job and his clients and seems to never rest until he has finished for the day (or night). I’m so happy to be going through this process with someone u can really trust. Thanks, Henry!

Henry was very professional, honest and answered my questions. I would definitely recommend him for legal help. A divorce is one of the most stressful situations a person can go through. Henry did his best to make the legal part of it go very smoothly.

Great and knowledgeable
Henry actually took the time to call me personally over the weekend and spent quite a while answering all of my questions. He directed me to all resources to accomplish the things I needed. He seems to be a very sincere and trustworthy person you dont see that anymore. Here truly cares for others. Thank you Henry I hope to see my grandbaby son. He will be one in a few weeks. Ive missed his entire first year of life.

Thank you Ms. H.J. As I promised, I will assist you & your son however I can so that your rights to grandparental visitation can be restored as quickly as possible. FYI, for anyone that reads my response to this review, the person who contacted me lives over 1,000 miles away from NY where I am based. However, I am providing advice on a pro bono basis in order to assist this nice woman & her son.

Amazing Attorney!!
I have recently worked with Mr. Henry Lung, regarding post divorce modifications to my divorce stipulation. Mr. Lung came highly recommended by a family member. Upon meeting him, I immediately knew that I was in good hands. Mr. Lung is warm and welcoming and very patient; more importantly, he is extremely well versed in the area of matrimonial, divorce and family law, as well as in other areas of law. He spent a great deal of time listening to my concerns and working with me to prepare for our court appearance. Mr. Lung represented me in a most professional manner. He defended my position and was successful in having modifications granted to my divorce stipulation. I am finally more financially and emotionally secure in providing for the needs of my young daughters. Throughout my time working with him, Mr. Lung was prompt in responding to my phone calls and emails. He reassured me when I was feeling confused and anxious. If you are searching for an excellent attorney, I highly recommend Mr. Henry Lung!!

Henry Lung is literally the best lawyer in Long Island. He is honest, truthful, and hard working. I had a recent case, and he helped me get most of my charges dropped when I thought it would not be possible, but he made it work. I definitely recommend Henry for anyone who has a case in divorce and seperation or criminal defense.

Compassionate professional
Despite me contacting Henry on Christmas Eve, he immediately stepped up to assist a seriously ill sibling. My sibling needed her will and several power of attorney documents notarized, quickly due to circumstances. Henry came out at 11:30 pm Christmas Eve to take care of the business. He was compassionate, understanding, kind and professional. Henry even gifted, pro bono, his services for my sibling. It was one of the best gifts our family received this holiday!

This nice review was posted by the sister of a woman (named Kathy/Kathleen & of course her last name does not appear here) that attends my church here on Long Island. I received this phone call in the early afternoon of Christmas Eve, 2019 & was asked to notarize Kathy's signature that evening (or in the next few days) at a local hospital. I decided to go that same evening after my parents & sister had gone to sleep. I was at the hospital from approx. 11:30 PM until 12:45 AM on Christmas Day. I found Kathy to be very nice & I took care of the signature notarization. We were fortunate to find 2 nice women that were willing to serve as witnesses to the power of Attorney documents. I did not hesitate to do this at a very late hour on Christmas Eve because I felt that this was the type of kind act that a true Christian person would do. I wish Kathy & her sisters many blessings & I believe that she will make a full recovery.

Very Comforting
My anxiety about my husband’s immigration case was rising for a year and had consulted with many lawyers and paralegals who didn’t make me feel comfortable about the immigration process. When I first got in contact with Henry, he was able to make me feel much more at ease with his knowledge and his ability to help us keep things simple. Henry was clear and cautious with every instruction he gave us. I could feel that he had our best interest in mind. I’m so grateful to have found him when I did.

My pleasure to work with you (Yaritza) & your husband. Yes I remember you saying that you shopped around for at least 6 months looking for an Immigration lawyer that you felt comfortable with before hiring that person. I am glad that you chose me & I look forward to completing this case so that your husband can have his green card in the US. Happy holidays to you & many thanks

Very good lawyer
Henry handled my divorce and immigration case which both turned out to be SUCCESSFUL. We worked together for almost a year and I was really impressed with his dedication and passion for his career. He treats you as a friend and genuinely empathizes with you on your situation. He goes above and beyond to make your appointments work even if it means meeting you on a weekend or late evening. He answers my calls and my emails very promptly. Takes his time meeting you and explaining things to you. He gets things done in a timely manner. Very professional. I 100% recommend Henry!

This review was written by a lovely young woman who hired me to remove the 'conditions' on her permanent residency, which required us to complete a divorce case. Also, the Hearing Officer for the case was very nice & patient, so sometimes the right elements come together so long as the attorney & the client continue the push the case properly. Thank you again for taking the time to do this!

I have this man now not only as my lawyer but as a good friend i trust. I wish every lawyer was just like Mr.Henry Lung. If you have case to resolve, i highly recomend a visit to this lawyer.

Honest, Caring, and Hardworking
My wife and I had a very challenging immigration case, that many lawyers would not take on. However, when we approached Mr. Lung he assured us that even though the case wouldn't be easy, and that it would take a lot of hard work, that he was confident in his ability to get the job done. Needless to say, after a few years of consistent dedication to our case, we have reached our ultimate goal of obtaining my wife's citizenship and there is no way this would have been done without this prestigious lawyers help! We highly recommend Mr. Lung. Thank you Henry!

Thank you Josh for writing these nice comments. For anyone who reads this, Josh & his wife are a young couple that I can tell are very happy together. In my 18+ years of law practice, I have represented many young clients (under 30 yrs old) & it is very true that some young clients are immature, not dependable & can change their minds without warning. But some young people such as Josh & his wife are very reliable & easy to work with. It's a reminder for me that every client is different & unique & each case comes with its own challenges. I am very grateful to have met Josh, who did not grow up in the Northeast & his wife, who are now raising young children. Many blessings to your family & thank you again.

A great human being and a lawyer
Henry Lung was recommended to me by a very close friend. The first case Henry helped me with, was a straight forward information and truthful explanation on how a case would evolve and what the results would be. Right on target. The second time, was a different and longer issue. Patience was key. The situation a bit complex. But, Henry was right on target with advise, encouragement and genuine interest in me as a person and the situation I was facing. The results spoke for themselves. Thank you Henry. I know that I can count on you for any other legal advise I may need in the future. Now, I consider you a personal friend.

This review was posted by a sweet young lady whose Immigration case I worked on. As a result, she was approved for permanent residency, which is a step that everyone must go through in order to obtain US citizenship in the future. Thank you very much for saying these nice things about me!

Client Review
Mr. Henry Lung is very genuine, informative, kind and patient. I have a clear understanding on the subject once I left his office which put me at ease. I would absolutely recommend him as he has great expertise on legal matters and you can be rest assured you will be in good hands! Definitely recommend!!
Response from Henry Lung April 11, 2019
Thank you for posting this review. Sometimes I will come into contact with a person where that person only needs advice & guidance instead of having to hire a lawyer. I am glad to do this & on occasion, I will ask him/her to write a review for me using whatever words & language that the person wants. It is very true that when it comes to lawyers, many of them write their own reviews. I have a woman working at my office who worked for a Long-Island based Divorce lawyer for 2 decades & she told me that this lawyer hired a kid to write some positive reviews for him. The first letter of that lawyer's first name is 'K.'

We would recommend Mr. Lung to anyone looking for an attorney
Mr. Henry Lung was contacted to serve as local counsel for one of our personal injury cases. Mr. Lung was friendly, knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. Mr. Lung was very professional in all of our telephone conferences and while our case settled prior to hiring Mr. Lung as local counsel, we would recommend Mr. Lung to anyone looking for an attorney.

This review was posted by an attorney (a partner, I believe) from a law firm based in the Midwest (in a well-known city). It's true that I was contacted by this law firm to file a certain lawsuit here in New York City. They found me online & hired me & I was willing to assist them. Thank you very much for posting these nice comments.

Thank God!
I don't think he will ever know what his support has meant to me. After years without legal representation having someone on my side is almost surreal. The case is air tight but I have had real difficulty. He was comprehensive, timeous and precise - in short, a miracle

Professional misconduct

This lawyer was disciplined by a state licensing authority in 2020.

Suspension issued in NY, 2020

Suspended means an attorney lost his or her license to practice law for a period of time. The attorney typically returns to practicing law when the suspension expires.

Censured issued in NY, 2013
updated on 02/11/2020

When an attorney is censured it means he or she did something wrong but may still practice law. Typically in this case the lawyer's poor behavior is exposed to the public in hopes that he or she will not repeat the behavior.

Henry's comment: “I was issued a 'public censure' in 2013 for something that happened in 2008-09 when I donated money to a woman who was elderly & sick & always complained about needing money for surgery on her back (she did not have health insurance at the time & I don't know if she is still alive). This was a matter that involved an allegation of my sharing a fee that I had earned with a non-lawyer. This situation did Not involve any allegations of legal malpractice at all.”
