Jun Wang
Principal

Mr. Jun Wang received his Juris Doctor (J.D.) degree in 1993 from Brooklyn Law School in New York City and holds a Master's degree in English Literature from Beijing Foreign Studies University. Prior to launching his legal career, Mr. Wang had pursued a literary career as a scholar and a teacher of English and English literature at Beijing Foreign Studies University. He then pursued his doctoral studies in English Literature at University of Denver and University of Connecticut where he also taught English writing. He is the author of literary book reviews and published Chinese translations of poetry and fiction by English, American and Australian writers. With his career background in English literature, Mr. Wang has a keen sense of the power of the written word in his legal practice. Presentation of a client's application or petition in clear, concise and persuasive legal writing is one essential element of his practice that has distinguished his legal representation.

Mr. Wang started his career in the field of U.S. immigration and nationality laws even before he completed his law school education. Upon receiving his J.D. degree, he started his immigration law practice by building up an immigration law department within a general practice law firm in New York City. Shortly after that, he started his own immigration law practice under the name of Law Offices of Jun Wang. He has been a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association since 1994 and practices immigration and nationality laws in all fifty states of the United States.

Mr. Wang first distinguished himself as an immigration attorney with his representation of the much publicized immigrant visa petitions for classification as Alien of Extraordinary Ability by Chinese folk artists who came to the United States in the infamous ship Golden Venture in the mid and late 1990's. With the approval of these visa petitions by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, Mr. Wang was interviewed by The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor, WNBC (New York), CBS, Life Magazine, and all major Chinese language newspapers in the east coast of the United States.

What distinguishes Mr. Wang's immigration practice from the majority of immigration attorneys is the perspective gained from his personal experience as the beneficiary of the US immigration system and process. Mr. Wang personally went through the confusion, frustration, and pains of the seemingly impossible and never-ending immigration process in the United States. This personal process started before he started attending law school and continued throughout his law school years and through representation by different immigration attorneys, as well as through the appeal process. His personal experience as the beneficiary of the U.S. immigration system and process, first as a passive observer and then as an active participant working on some highly complicated legal issues, painful as it is, turned out to be a deciding factor in his choice of immigration law practice as a life-time career. This personal experience has added an invaluable dimension to his practice -- a sensitiveness to the emotional needs of individual clients, an understanding of the importance of timely and unobstructed attorney-client communication, and, in the context of any given employer sponsored immigration process, an enhanced awareness of an attorney's responsibility to reconcile the very often seemingly conflicting needs of the individual client with those of the employer.
