Areas of Practice
Family based immigration
Margaret W. Wong & Associates, LLC provides specialized counsel to individual immigrants and their families. We help thousands of individuals and families with various visas, including K-1 Fiancé, K-2, K-3, K-4, F-1, F-2, J-1, J-2, L-1, and L-2s. We also advise couples on the US green card process through marriage.
employment based immigration
We advise companies and individuals on various employment-based immigrant visas, which allow for a green card (permanent residency in the United States), including the various EB employment based categories, and non-immigrant visas, which allow employees to work in the US temporarily.
investment based immigration
We advise individuals and investment groups on non-immigrant investment based visas, including E-1 and E-2 treaty visas, which encourage trade between the United States and the treaty country.
Asylum is a protection granted to foreign nationals already in the United States or at the border who meet the international definition of a “refugee.” Our attorneys are dedicated to representing and advocating on behalf of immigrants seeking asylum in the United States. We have successfully represented thousands of immigrants and their family members in the asylum process.
Deportation and Removal
Immigrants who are threatened with deportation or who have been ordered removed from the United States must navigate the complex legal and federal regulatory system. We vigorously defend immigrants throughout the country who face deportation, and advise individuals on their options for fighting removal.
Immigrants who have already been to immigration court and the Board of Immigration Appeals without obtaining their desired results may have additional options through the appeals process. We are one of the premier immigration law firms in the United States, and have extensive knowledge and experience in federal immigration law.
With our experience and knowledge, we have the answers to many common immigration questions.
Whether you’re a U.S Citizen, Legal Permanent Resident, or have no status at all.

I-140 approved! 5.0 stars
Very intelligent and hardworking law firm. Chela Marquez did an outstanding job. Someone mentioned Wong to me about a year ago and I went straight to them. The person who recommended Wong said she has the ability to turn a bad situation into a good one and they proved it to me! I intentionally approached another attorney with my case and they took a one look at it and called it “weak”, using only one criteria but Wong and her team know how to look at cases from every angle and do a good job! I am happy with my outcome and I thank you guys for a good job!
The process is long but they are using the time to present a great case as well. They assisted me also in a bad H1B case, so I have used them twice! My I-140 has been approved and paves the way for my green card issuance. Thank you Margaret Wong and Associates. Thank you Chela. – UA
