Jennifer K. Chang
I am a family-based immigration attorney focusing on helping individuals and families deepen their roots in the United States. As the principal attorney at Pyrus Law, I continue to emphasize the values which brought me to this career: providing client-centered immigration legal services to help my clients thrive. I take pride in speaking "human" rather than "legalese", invest in my relationships with my clients, and care for their welfare and success. My clients see me as a partner and an ally in addition to their attorney. I currently specialize in family-based immigration which is informed by my past experience in employment-based immigration and humanitarian immigration.
I am a native of the San Francisco Bay Area, raised by immigrant parents in a bilingual Chinese-American household. I am an avid traveler and have spent time living in China and Switzerland. One of my favorite hobbies is grocery shopping in foreign countries.
"I am truly devoted to fighting for your family's dreams."
I received my Bachelor’s degree from UC San Diego in French Literature and Political Science. I studied law at Northeastern University School of Law. Prior to starting Pyrus Law, I worked as a Dependency Attorney with Sacramento Child Advocates and clerked with the San Francisco Public Defender’s Office, the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office, the Youth Law Center, and International Bridges to Justice. I am also an alumni Americorps volunteer at East Palo Alto Academy High School
I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers' Association, Santa Clara Valley Chapter. In my spare time, I volunteer as the Camp Co-Director and District Chair for Camp Rotary Youth Leadership Award in Rotary District 5170, a leadership camp for high school students where I have been volunteering for the past two decades. I am happily married to my husband, Eric, and together we have a dog, Strongi, a son, Tristan, and a daughter, Madeline. If I'm not busy doing all that, you may find me crafting, snowboarding or feasting on some Läderach dark chocolate.
