Biography: Benjamin Wang is a member of the Oregon State Bar Association and the American Immigration Lawyers Association. He is admitted to practice law before the federal District Court for Oregon and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. His education, training and experience with the U.S. immigration system give him a unique ability to understand the concerns and complex issues that many of his clients face.
Mr. Wang began his college studies in China, attending Yanan University in Shaanxi Province. In 1988, he moved to Seattle, Washington, to continue his studies, and received his B.A. in English from Seattle University in 1991. In 1995, Mr. Wang relocated to Eugene, Oregon, to pursue his law studies at the University of Oregon Law School, and received his J.D. in 1998.
Immediately after graduating from law school, he began his law practice as an associate attorney with a reputable local law firm, Luvaas Cobb Richards and Fraser, where he had clerked while in law school. As an associate at the firm, he assisted the firm’s partners in conducting legal research, representing clients in court proceedings and preparing legal documents. At the same time, he began bringing in immigration clients on his own. Mr. Wang decided to start an immigration law practice for two reasons. First, his background as someone who was born and grew up in China provided him with personal experience with U.S. immigration law. Mr. Wang knew he could utilize that experience to benefit his clients. Second, he wanted to develop a legal practice that expanded the firm’s portfolio. With the help of the lawyers at the firm as well as immigration lawyers in the community, he gradually built up an immigration law practice at the firm.
In 2002, Mr. Wang established his own law firm, Benjamin Beijing Wang, P.C. He has focused his practice on all aspects of U.S. immigration law, representing clients from across the U.S. and abroad. He has appeared with clients before the Immigration Court and successfully defended clients from being deported, and has assisted clients in filing appeals with the Board of Immigration Appeals and the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals.
