She is known for creativity and resourcefulness and she has the ability to leverage formal and informal agency policies to develop successful strategies.
During her second year at Harvard Divinity School, Mi-Rang wandered into Deborah Anker’s immigration law class at Harvard Law School. She was impressed with Deborah’s passion and got hooked, signing up for the class and clinical program where she worked with Haitian asylum seekers. Since then, she has focused her career on immigration. As a business immigration lawyer, she has stayed involved with pro bono efforts through PAIR (Political Asylum/Immigration Representation Project).
Prior to joining Clark Lau, Mi-Rang served as Practice Group Associate with the immigration group of a multi-disciplinary national firm and as a Senior Associate for 18 years at a well-established and well-respected immigration law firm. As Senior Associate, she served as lead immigration counsel for large and medium-sized organizations and start-up companies in many industries, including biotechnology, financial services, information technology, public health, and management consulting. Immediately following law school, she served as a law clerk for the Justices of the Superior Court of Massachusetts.
When she is not practicing law, she enjoys time with her husband and son, cooking, yoga, and running. She is also a member of Bay State Co-Housing Community.
