Vincent Chan (Chee-Kwan) is a lawyer admitted to practice in the States of New York and California.  Additionally, he is a admitted to practice before the Supreme Court of the United States, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit (which encompasses the western seaboard and Hawaii), that of the Federal Circuit, all four United States district courts in California - Central, Southern, Northern, and Eastern, those of the Southern and Western Districts of New York, and also those of the Northern and Eastern districts  of Texas. He handles legal matters not only in New York and California, but has represented clients before federal agencies in various states, e.g., Arizona, and in the District of Columbia, and has practiced pro hac vice in the various federal courts in location such as Indiana and Nevada.

     REPORTED CASES and PUBLICATIONS - Vincent's efforts have yielded four published opinions at the federal appellate level.

         In Baltazar-Altazar v. Immigration and Naturalization Service, 386 F.3d 940 (9th Cir. 2004), he persuaded the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals to void the removal of a husband and wife caused when the Immigration Judge interfered with their right to be represented by their attorney of choice.

         In Taniguchi v. Schultz, 303 F.3d 950 (9th Cir. 2002), the circuit court ruled on the rationality of immigration laws that deprived permanent residents of certain immigration benefits while they extended those same benefits to illegal aliens and other nonpermanent residents.

         In Torbet v. United Airlines, Inc., 298 F.3d 1087 (9th Cir. 2002), the appellate panel examined and measured the nature and extent of random airport searches against the Fourth Amendment's prohibition against unreasonable searches and seizures.

And, in an unpublished opinion in 2003, Vincent managed to overturn a federal criminal conviction that threatened to wrest a mother from her children - a worthy achievement in the pursuit of a just cause.  United States v. Wang, 84 Fed.Appx. 950 (9th Cir. 2003),

     As a law student, Vincent served first as a Staff Member, and was then elected to be Research Editor for the Journal of Law and Trade in the Americas.  Additionally, as a Research Assistant, he assisted the publication efforts of a law professor.

     PROFESSIONAL ORGANIZATIONS - Vincent maintains affiliations with the New York State Bar Association, the Los Angeles County Bar Association, and the Association of Corporate Counsel.

    BACKGROUND AND EDUCATION - Born in Hong Kong, Vincent immigrated to the United States at the age of one and one-half.   He grew up in Irvine, California, and has spent the bulk of his life between Southern California and the Bay Area.

     He graduated from university in 1993 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Chinese Language and Literature, and learned that the Bear would neither quit nor die.

     Scoring in the ninety-ninth percentile (99%) on the LSAT (law school entrance examination), he earned a scholarship to law school, from which he graduated in 1996 with a Juris Doctor degree.  During law school, he competed in the Moot Court competition to win Best Oralist - Alternate Finalist.  He also earned the Exceptional Achievement award in International Finance.  He also studied international law in Hong Kong during one summer, where he earned a certificate with the highest marks in commercial law and in foreign trade and investment.  Since law school, he has regularly attended mandatory continuing legal education courses to further his understanding of the law.

     Presently, having similarly scored in the ninety-fourth percentile (94%) on the GMAT (MBA entrance examination), he earned a Masters of Business Administration (MBA) degree to complement his international business practice.  Those studies culminated in the 2006 Rose Bowl, wherein the University of Texas (El Paso) Longhorns defeated the University of Southern California Trojans.

     PRACTICE - To this responsibility, he brings vast legal experience and, of course, soul.  Having served as corporate counsel and having practiced as a trial lawyer, he regularly advises entities in international business transactions, and regularly engages in state and federal business litigation, where representation begins in demands and negotiations even before litigation has commenced, through pleading and pre-trial stages of a case, and in aid of final resolution - whether through mediation, binding arbitration, or (bench or jury) trial.  Appellate practice (federal and state), criminal defense (felony and misdemeanor representation through trial in state and federal prosecutions), and a myriad of other areas affecting his subjects (immigration, family law, etc.) comprise the substantial remainder of his active practice.

He has also taught a series of courses (procedural and substantive law) at a local paralegal program, achieving status as a self-proclaimed and self-recognized Professor of Paralegal Studies.

     One of a growing number of bilingual Orientals, he speaks Chinese (Cantonese - and even the Mandarin dialect) as well as English of the American persuasion.

     ATTRIBUTES - Vincent is suave, debonair, and a hit with the ladies.
