About Christy

Christy has a passion for immigration law because she herself was an immigrant.  She left Vietnam when she was an infant and was raised in Southern California.  She is a naturalized U.S. Citizen.

Christy has been selected as a Southern California “Rising Star” by Super Lawyers magazine for the past eight consecutive years — in 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017.  (Fewer than 2.5% of California attorneys who are under 40 are selected to the Rising Star list.)

Christy’s abilities as a lawyer — coupled with her personal understanding of the high stakes involved for her clients — are keys to success in her immigration practice.

Prior to law school, Christy was a business consultant at Deloitte Consulting, where she provided management and technology consulting services — including business strategy development, web-based development, and implementation of business enterprise-wide information systems — to Fortune 500 companies.
