Joseph Chitmongran is an entrepreneur and a state licensed attorney. Born and raised here in California, Mr. Chitmongran is the family's first generation Thai-American. He credits his father for having the courage to uproot and migrate to the United States, thereby establishing the family as one of the first Thai immigrants in California. Growing up in a family of immigrants, attorney Joseph Chitmongran understands first hand, the obstacles and stress the immigration process can have on family life.  He is an advocate for, and supporter of, legalized immigration. In addition to his immigration work, Attorney J. Chitmongran also provides legal services for numerous other causes and in other practice areas. He is a firm believer of justice, and works hard to represent his client's best interests.

Q & A

Q: Why did you become an attorney?
A: I think all attorneys have in them, a need to help others. I'm protective by nature. I remember back in my school days when I would get into trouble for fighting. I always thought I was justified because I was protecting a friend, a classmate, and even strangers, from being pushed around and abused by bullies. In that sense, I haven't really changed. I still am that protector. The only difference is now I do it legally and without force.

Q: If you weren't an attorney, what would you be doing?
A: Growing up, I had many dreams.  I have accomplished some of them, but I still have several more to go. If I were not an attorney, I would probably be a doctor. I initially started my studies at the University of California, Irvine geared towards medicine. During my off season, I worked at Kaiser Permanente. I gained experience and learned a lot. I wanted to be the best doctor ever. I eventually gave that up and dedicated my time to law, which was my other love. And of course, my other interests include real estate and business. I can see myself expanding in these areas. Hopefully I can do that and continue to further help others.

Q: Why did you become involved in the Thai Community?
A: I became involved in the Thai community because of the terrible things I was hearing about. I never knew how wide spread the evil was until I actually got involved. I just couldn't stand by and let my people continue to be taken advantage of, so that's why I decided to expand my practice. I try to do my best, and I think I've helped a lot of people, but the evil continues. A lot of people are being taken advantage of just because they are too trusting of others.

Q: What makes you happy?
A: Many things make me happy. I'm happy when I'm able to spend quality time with my family and friends. I have a hectic schedule, but I always make sure I dedicate time for them. I'm happy when I know I've done right by my clients; that I've done my best to achieve the results in their best interest, and, in one way or another, I was able to impact their lives in a pleasant and positive way.

Q: What did you learn from your parents?
A: Parents are our first teachers so we learn a lot from them. My father is a stubborn business man. He never listens to anyone and always does things for himself. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Either way, he never gives up and always seems to push forward. From my father, I learned to be self-reliant, strong and tenacious in my pursuits.  He gave me the drive to educate myself and to keep fighting for what I want in life. My mother, on the other hand, is an absolute angel.  She would give her last dollar to someone who really needed it. From my mother, I learned to be caring, nurturing, and protective. She taught me to help others less fortunate and to always stand up for those who couldn't stand up for themselves. I can't say enough about my mother. She's the best!
