According to the non-partisan Migration Policy Institute, the population of Chinese immigrants in the United States has seen a yearly growth of nearly seven-fold since 1980, reaching almost 2.5 million in 2018.
Given that the large population of Chinese citizens are underrepresented as a whole, getting a lawyer with the same background as they do would be extremely helpful. An understanding of Mandarin and traditional cultures is one of the best factors in hiring a personal injury lawyer, car accident lawyer, motorcycle accident lawyer, truck accident lawyer, and the likes.
Michael Hua is a first-generation child of Chinese and Taiwanese immigrants. He experienced first-hand, the challenges of every immigrant, especially those with language barriers trying to navigate the American system.
Some of Michael Hua’s earliest elementary school memories involved assisting his Chinese family navigate through complicated paperwork, bills, and government agencies. More importantly though, Michael Hua’s warmest memories involve sharing a steamed fish and a large rice cooker among other dishes around the family dinner table.
As a child, Michael Hua volunteered with the Chinese Tzu Chi foundation in Las Vegas and in Taipei. Growing up, Michael Hua regularly traveled back to Taiwan to visit family and friends.
He received his undergraduate degree in 3 years in the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV). He received his law degree from the UNLV William S. Boyd School of Law and was a member of the Nevada Law Journal.
Michael Hua is now a dedicated Chinese Lawyer in Las Vegas and has been working in the legal field for over 10 years. Before committing himself full time to represent human beings who were wronged, Michael Hua had positive experiences in complex litigation for Fortune 500 companies, insurance defense, drunk drivers, criminal prosecution, capital murder, and insurance bad faith.
Michael Hua can now give back to the same Chinese community that raised him.
Due to his Chinese upbringing and as a Chinese Lawyer in Las Vegas, Michael Hua volunteers his time to help the Asian and Chinese communities in their legal issues. In fact, he is a part of the Executive Board of the Asian American Advocacy Clinic (AAAC), as a Special Legal Advocate.
The Asian American Advocacy Clinic was founded in 2012 as the first and only, Asian and Pacific Islander legal aid organization in Nevada. Its goal is to provide legal assistance to all members of the Asian and Pacific Islander community in Nevada.
Moreover, its primary missions are to increase access to the legal system, champion Asian Advocacy, and increase education and support services to low-income, linguistically, and/or culturally marginalized communities.
The Asian American Advocacy Clinic also has a project called Ask A Lawyer held on the first Saturday of every month. This initiative gives wider access to Asian lawyers and Chinese lawyers in Las Vegas to the public. This is also to ensure that they follow the guidelines and that the Asian community stays safe.
Depending on the specialty of the lawyer available at the “Ask a Lawyer,” topics such as family law, immigration law, taxes, and employment law are available for free consultations at the Asian American Advocacy Clinic’s program. Attorney Michael Hua, as an active member of the Asian American Advocacy Clinic and an experienced Chinese Lawyer in Las Vegas, is open to consultations or finding the appropriate Chinese Lawyer to assist you on different matters of your choice.
At this time, the Asian American Advocacy Clinic is particularly involved in focusing its attention advocating for victims of domestic violence and handling protective orders for marginalized communities of all cultural backgrounds. Please contact the Asian American Advocacy Clinic if you particularly need a protective order for a domestic dispute.
