Victor Cheng

In 2015, after more than a decade of work in the for-profit sector, Victor decided to embark on a legal career to provide legal assistance to immigrants.  Victor’s decision to become an immigration attorney was inspired by his father who fled China during the Chinese Communist Cultural Revolution and his family’s personal struggle with the immigration legal system in the U.S.  While attending City University of New York (CUNY) School of Law, he interned at the Department of Justice’s Executive Office for Immigration Review, New York Immigration Coalition, and Lutheran Social Services of New York. He also participated in CUNY’s Immigrant and Non-Citizen Rights Clinic. Victor is placed at Lutheran Social Services of New York where he represents low income immigrants in removal proceedings who cannot afford counsel.
