NCVAA - National Conference of Vietnamese American Attorneys

Message From Our President


It is incredible to see our various Vietnamese American legal communities from around the country (and sometimes from other parts of the world) converge once a year in one city for the opportunity to make lifelong friendships and long-lasting connections and impressions. We learn from each other by sharing ideas and by discussing issues affecting us.

I was first introduced to NCVAA in 2012 in Houston and was hooked from day one. It was a heartwarming surprise to be surrounded by so many lawyers with my same story and/or with my Vietnamese heritage. Growing up, I was not proud to walk with my head held high as a Vietnamese American. When we came over in 1975 as refugees, nobody talked about the Vietnam War. There was a sense of shame and burden being Vietnamese in a foreign land that I must now call my home country. I did my very best to blend in with American society. I did everything to be American and nothing to be Vietnamese. I had not realized I could be proud of my Vietnamese heritage until my involvement with NCVAA. Now I stand proudly as a Vietnamese-American attorney.

Our 13th annual conference is on October 4-5, 2019 in Dallas, Texas. Our conference kicks off with a Welcome Reception Friday night. On Saturday, we have a full-day CLE program (usually 5 or 6 credits), followed by our Dinner Gala Saturday night. Our conference team promises to provide an exciting and memorable boot-scootin’, bull-riding, Cowboy-chic good time Saturday night.

I encourage you to join us in Dallas to experience the magic that happens when we all come together. I hope to see and talk to you there!
