Yuvora Nong was raised in Gainesville, Florida. As a refugee himself, Yuvora understands the plight of immigrants and why they want to come to America. He has dedicated both his personal and professional life to helping others live without fear and bringing their families together.
In 1994, Yuvora graduated from the University of Florida with a Bachelor of Arts, double-majoring in Economics and Political Science. After receiving his Juris Doctor from Florida State University in 1997, he moved to the east coast where his wife had grown up to start his law practice.
A respected immigration attorney, Yuvora believes that what a law firm does is as important as how they do it. He believes that his employees are an extension of himself, and the firm’s reputation in the community is a testament to the way his firm is run. He enjoys mentoring young attorneys and seeing them develop into respectful, distinguished people.
In addition to helping thousands of people from all over the world through the immigration process, Yuvora is a member of several organizations that benefit vulnerable people in the community. He is currently on the Board of Directors of the Multicultural Career Internship Program at the Columbia Heights Educational Campus, assisting the D.C. public school with fundraising to foster the students’ academic abilities. He has also served on the Board of Directors of Southeast Asia Resource Action Center (SEARAC) and the Asian Pacific American Legal Resource Center (APALRC).
Yuvora takes pride in the two most important things in his life: his work and his family. He has been rooting for the Florida Gators since the age of three, and watching Florida Gator sports is a passion he has passed on to his family. While his four children are involved in soccer and swimming, Yuvora enjoys playing basketball and doing yard work.
