About James Yang

James D. Yang is an EB-5 immigration attorney and one of the co-founders of Pegasus Law Group, an immigration law firm based in Pasadena, Calif. Pegasus Law Group’s aim is to help individuals, families, organizations, investors and businesses enter the United States legally.

The Pegasus Law Group was founded by a group of immigration lawyers who were also immigrants coming from different parts of the world. The firm’s associates are very knowledgeable about U.S. immigration and international law. The firm wants to give legal services to clients with immigration problems at reasonable rates. The firm offers different immigration-based legal services, particularly to investor immigrants. The associates can help and assist with different immigration concerns, such as providing assistance to investors/entrepreneurs (E-2, EB-5), international companies (L-1, EB-1C), business professionals (H1-B, EB-3, EB-2, and EB-1), and to professionals and talented individuals (P-1, O1). The firm’s clients come from across the nation and around the world.

Attorney Yang was an immigrant himself; he was born in Beijing, China. His family migrated to the United States when he was still a young boy. He and his family experienced how difficult it is to be an immigrant and to live in a new country with a very different culture. He later acquired citizenship through naturalization.

He completed his Bachelor of Arts degree at the University of California, Berkeley, where he majored in Asian studies and economics in 2004. After finishing his undergraduate studies, he decided to pursue his law studies. He finished his Juris Doctor degree at the University of Southern California in 2007.

Prior to co-founding the Pegasus Law Group, attorney Yang had several years of experience as an immigration lawyer. He has helped countless businesses and corporations legally establish their businesses and services in the country. Previously, he was an associate of Darren Silver and Associates, an internationally-known law firm; while working at that firm, he handled difficult and complicated cases, such as motions and appeals before the U.S. Circuit of Court of Appeals, Bureau of Immigration Appeals (BIA) and Administrative Appeals Office (AAO). He also was an associate of the Law Offices of Micheal J. Maloney. His experience as a real estate broker and an analyst of an investment bank give him a strong background in business.

Attorney Yang focuses mainly on assisting entrepreneurs and investors with their EB-5 visa applications. He has already helped hundreds of investors and entrepreneurs do business in the United States legally. He also handles clients’ cases that involve general litigation, appellate work, foreign investments, and business valuation and modeling. In the past two years, he has already filed at least one hundred I-829s and I-526s on behalf of investors coming from different countries.

The majority of EB-5 investors are from China, so it is important that attorney Yang is bilingual. Since he was born and raised in China, he can converse well in Mandarin Chinese and English.
