William’s first immigration experience was a successful asylum grant for a Tibetan Buddhist Monk through the Safe Harbor Clinic at Brooklyn Law School. During his time at law school, he also worked at the Law Office of David Kim, which led him to intern at New York County Defenders’ Immigration Unit where he learned how to prevent adverse immigration consequences for non-citizens facing criminal charges. He also interned at Appellate Advocates where he worked on reforms helping immigrants reopen criminal cases to prevent deportation. William looks forward to joining New York Legal Assistance Group’s Immigrant Protection Unit to get invaluable and diverse experience in Asylum, Defense Removal, VAWA, T & U Visas and many other complex areas of immigration law needed for an impactful career as an immigration attorney.
