International Students

Virginia Lee with International StudentsI am pleased to represent international students who are attending Boston area colleges and universities such as MIT, Northeastern University, Boston University, Berklee College of Music, Wellesley, Lasell College, and Harvard. I also represent international high school students.

Some young people are excited to get involved with new ventures. Others find themselves in legal trouble, including criminal cases,  and have no familiarity with the American system.

A Chinese interpreter is provided for students coming from China who are not yet completely proficient in English. Students and parents alike are often happy to have found a Chinese lawyer, 中国律师, even though my Chinese language skills are certainly very basic. I work with and need the assistance of Chinese translators to make sure that Chinese clients can communicate effectively. Members of the Asian American Lawyers Association of Massachusetts, including many Chinese lawyers, are also available to represent Chinese clients.

Although most of my international students are Chinese or Taiwanese, I am interested in assisting students from around the world.  Coming to a new country has its challenges and an attorney can help you sort things out.
