Our Legal Team

Lucy Fong Lee

Being creative for my clients is the best part of my job. I love working with people from all over the world, in any industry or occupation. I assess my clients’ situation and form legal strategies to successfully enable them to obtain work visas, green cards, and US citizenship. I specialize in guiding and advising established organizations, start-up companies, multinational and domestic corporations, investors, and professionals in a variety of occupations from software engineers to ballet dancers, families and individuals. I will identify the best legal options, clearly explain them, and lay out a timeline to achieve my clients’ goals.

My parents are immigrants from China. The story of how they fled Communism and worked hard in America, the country they truly love, inspired me to become an attorney and help immigrants. I grew up working in the family restaurant business, mostly as a sous chef. Upon becoming an attorney, I worked at Tana, Moran & Weil and Pillsbury, Madison & Sutro before joining Fallon, Bixby, & Cheng in 1996. I became the owner of the firm in 2000 at which time the firm became Fallon, Bixby, Cheng & Lee.

I love my job.  Working with people from many different countries in an area of law that is constantly influenced by politics and the economy is always interesting. No two cases are alike because no two people are alike.  I enjoy the challenges, learning about different professions and the intricacies of my clients’ lives which have brought them to this country.  Most rewarding is helping individuals achieve the right to live in the United States, something that Americans so often take for granted.

I discovered immigration law when the “Amnesty” law came into effect in 1986.  I worked for several years as a legal assistant which motivated me to pursue law school with the sole purpose of becoming an immigration lawyer.  Upon receiving my law degree, I worked for almost five years at Angela M. Bean & Associates practicing deportation defense, asylum and family immigration.  I joined Fallon Bixby Cheng & Lee in October 2000.  Here I learned the employment-side of immigration law including the alphabet of temporary visas as well as employer-sponsored permanent residence cases.

In 1994, our country’s immigration laws became personally relevant to me when I married an undocumented immigrant from Mexico.  He is now a naturalized US citizen and we have two beautiful children.

Credentials and Qualifications

    • I graduated cum laude from the University of San Francisco School of Law in May 1995.
    • I completed my undergraduate degree in International Relations from the University of California at Davis.
    • I also hold a Master’s Degree in International Business Suma Cum Laude from the Monterey Institute of International Studies.
    • I read, write and speak Spanish fluently.
    • I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyer’s Association (AILA).

Helping others to achieve their dreams of a better life is what makes my work meaningful and exciting. I enjoy this sense of fulfillment by working in the field of immigration law. As an immigrant myself, I identify with those who decide to leave home and start a new life in this country. I am aware on how intimidating, challenging, and stressful it may be to navigate the U.S. immigration system, and I am eager to assist others with their journey. My commitment to the immigrant community, then, is to strive in providing the best level of service, with honesty and diligence.

I was born and raised in Peru. After graduating from the National University of San Marcos School of Law, I worked as a judicial law clerk and advisor to four judges at the Lima Superior Court – Employment Law Branch. Later, I became a legislative/policy analyst and legal counselor for two Peruvian government programs that assisted low-income farmers and urban communities. I immigrated to the U.S., in December 2011 and worked as a paralegal on a variety of immigration matters including family-based and employment-based cases, non-immigrant visa petitions, U visas for victims of crime, I-601/I-601A waivers, naturalization, among others. I joined Fallon, Bixby, Cheng & Lee, Inc. in May 2017, as a paralegal. In June 2019, I was sworn in by the State Bar of California and I’m now working at FBC&L as an attorney.
