  • Yanfei's background in international law makes her experience and expertise essential in serving our clients. Practicing law in New York, London, Hong Kong, Beijing, and Shanghai has given her unique perspectives that she utilizes when solving legal issues for clients. Having joined ML and CHEN P.C. in 2013, Yanfei is currently the Office Manager and Head of Immigration in the firm’s Flushing office.

    Inspired by Abraham Lincoln as a child, Yanfei has always pursued justice and fairness in her career as a legal professional. She started out as a prosecutor in Beijing, China and proceeded to work as a practicing attorney for more than ten years, earning her way to top executive positions like Senior Attorney and Partner in multiple prestigious firms in Beijing. Instilled with a strong sense of what was right, Yanfei went against her role as prosecutor several times and publicly advocated for the innocence of defendants who were wrongly charged—something that was extremely rare in China at the time.

    Throughout the years, Yanfei has engaged in a multitude of educational and employment experiences that have brought her from the streets of midtown Manhattan to the sidewalks of London and Hong Kong and given her the diverse trove of legal knowledge and expertise she possesses today.

    Yanfei is a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). She has been admitted to all courts in China, the New York State Bar, U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts, and the U.S. EOIR Immigration Court. At ML and CHEN, P.C., Yanfei oversees immigration, contracts, trademark registration application, trusts, wills, estate and special needs protection, company registration, and business and real estate transactions.

    Besides being an attorney, Yanfei also has a prolific career of speaking, writing, and philanthropy. She was consistently invited to Princeton University to give lectures and hold classes, and she is one of the major contributors for the book Dream Becomes True (A Comprehensive Legal Guide for Chinese Immigrants In The United States Of America), published by the Chinese Christian Herald Crusades. She also regularly provides bro bono services for community organizations and individuals who cannot afford legal fees.

    In her practice at ML and CHEN, P.C., Yanfei has been praised by clients and peers with her eye for detail, efficiency, professionalism, and pragmatism.
