Margaret_W_WongMargaret W. Wong is an award-winning managing partner of her namesake law firm, bringing more than
38 years of experience in immigration and nationality law and legal practice management to her valued clients.

So, when Barb Brown and Margie Flynn set out to commemorate the 20th anniversary of their corporate sustainability and governance consulting firm with a book project that sought to give further voice to women leaders—they knew Margaret should be involved.

As one of the 25 accomplished and influential women business leaders featured in BrownFlynn co-founders’ book Uplifting Leaders* (*Who Happen to be Women), Margaret brings a unique perspective to the conversation because she’s not only a women business leader—but an immigrant to the United States.

In the book, Margaret discusses the importance of mentorship:

“Education and mentoring have always been very important to me,” she says. “It’s especially important for foreign-born children in America because they’re at a disadvantage from the start.”

She adds, “I believe the younger generation has an opportunity to consider learning from our generation. In my day, we continually absorbed advice and hoped one day to give back as mentors ourselves.”

Her firm, Margaret W. Wong & Associates, is nationally and internationally renowned for its ability to successfully represent clients and companies in obtaining immigration status. Her firm is rated AV Preeminent, is a Best Lawyers’ Best Law Firm, and is rated 10 by AVVO.

Margaret is a sought-after speaker and author an adjunct professor at Case Western Reserve University Law School; and Founding Chair of the seminar on immigration and naturalization law of the Federal Bar Association, Northern District of Ohio.

Her law firm has won more than 35 precedent-setting cases in U.S. Federal Courts and Boards of Immigration Appeals. She was also named Honor Professor of People at the University of China (China’s top law school) and is the author of The Immigrant’s Way. She sat on Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown’s Ad Hoc Committee on Nominations of U.S. Attorneys and U.S. Marshals of the Southern District of Ohio.

She loves reading and writing. She has represented thousands of immigrants throughout her life, and she personally sees more than 100 clients most weeks of her working life.
