Meet Tony Tai Nguyen

As a Vietnamese immigrant, serving a diverse community is not a newly acquired interest for Tony.  


Tony's began his professional career with the Garden Grove Police Department where he served in several assignments, including the Youth Services Unit.  In that role, Tony collaborated with School Resource Officers and Juvenile Detectives in education-related matters such as crimes at school, School Attendance Review Boards (S.A.R.B), truancy reduction, and missing/runaway juveniles. 


Tony gained his legal expertise while working at a special education law firm in San Diego where he conducted complex research on education law issues to help students receive an appropriate education. Tony later honed his legal skills by providing pro bono legal representation to foster children in Special Education at the San Diego Volunteer Lawyer Program’s Education Law Project.


Tony's unique law enforcement and education law experience serves as a great advantage for his clients and enhances his capacity to diligently investigate student matters and comprehend the underlying issues of educational concerns.  Tony speaks fluent Vietnamese and is currently the only Vietnamese-speaking special education attorney practicing in California.


Aside from practicing law, Tony uses his expertise to raise special education awareness at various trainings and conference workshops to help professionals, non-profit originations and families within the community gain practical understanding of special education rights.

Tony’s professional goals in 2020 include continuing to advocate for students in under-represented rural communities and strategizing plans to bring special needs services to Vietnam.

In Tony's leisure time, he enjoys being outdoors and dining at "foodie spots" with his family and friends.  Tony also loves to talk sports, especially if it involves the Lakers, Chargers, or Angels.
