About our Practice

My Practice


I genuinely believe in providing personalized advocacy for every child's individualized education. To achieve this, I work diligently to accommodate the unique dynamics of each family, aiming for the best possible outcome for the student's education.

As a Vietnamese immigrant, my commitment to serving a diverse community has deep roots.

My professional journey began at a local law enforcement agency, where I held various roles, including within the Youth Services Unit. Working alongside School Resource Officers and Juvenile Detectives, I gained invaluable experience in addressing education-related issues such as crimes in schools, truancy reduction, and missing juveniles.

Transitioning to the legal field, I refined my expertise at a special education law firm during law school. Here, I conducted extensive research to ensure students received the appropriate education they deserve. I also provided pro bono representation to foster children in special education through the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Education Law Project.

Combining my backgrounds in law enforcement and education advocacy, I offer a unique perspective to investigate student matters diligently, while understanding the complexities of educational issues. As the only Vietnamese-speaking special education attorney in California, I bridge language barriers for my clients.

Beyond my legal practice, I empower our community through training sessions and conference workshops, helping professionals, non-profit organizations, and families gain a practical understanding of special education rights. In the future, I aspire to advocate for students in underrepresented rural communities and organize Orange County's first Vietnamese conference for families with disabled children.

In my free time, I enjoy outdoor activities, exploring local foodie spots with friends and family, and cheering on my favorite sports teams like the Lakers, Chargers, or Angels.
