Cameron Chong is the Founding Attorney of Chong Immigration Law PLLC which opened its doors in 2017. The firm was founded on the principles that the U.S. is made better through immigration and that this country was founded by immigrants and it is through this that we have achieved such heights in the worlds of science, technology, the arts, and business. Prior to founding the firm, Cameron was an Associate Attorney at Arce Immigration Law PA in Miami, FL, working under Carmen Arce, one of Ira Kurzban's previous associates and editors.

Cameron comes from a long line of immigrants on both sides of his family, fostering a respect and admiration for individuals who leave behind their home countries for life in the U.S. His primary practice areas include non-immigrant visas, family-based permanent residence, and employment-based permanent residence, particularly for EB-1 and EB-2 NIW self-petitioners. He has experience and expertise working with clients from a variety of backgrounds and professions, including: scientists, engineers, doctors, athletes, models, international professionals, and business executives.

As a proud member of the LGBTQ community he also has particular sensitivity and experience with same-sex couples and LGBTQ asylum seekers. He also regularly provides pro-bono assistance to clients of Whitman-Walker Health in need of immigration assistance.
