Ava Li, the founding attorney of Ava Li Law PLLC, embarked on a remarkable journey that led to the establishment of our firm.
Before coming to the United States, Ava worked as an attorney in Beijing. She helped the team in the law firm with legal services for the 2008 Beijing Olympics, showing her dedication to excellence.
In 2012, Ava pursued an LL.M. Degree in International Intellectual Property Law at Chicago-Kent College of Law because she focused on IP law and entertainment law. She excelled in her studies and earned honors. She then continued her legal education by obtaining a J.D. degree at South Texas College of Law Houston. During her time there, Ava had valuable internships at a technology company in Sugar Land, TX, and a law firm in Houston, TX.
Ava specializes in copyright and trademark law, assisting artists and writers with copyright registrations, copyright clearance, and aiding entrepreneurs in trademark registrations. Additionally, her practice areas include immigration law, real estate, wills, and trusts. She has gained extensive immigration experience in helping clients with petitions like EB-1A Extraordinary Ability, EB-1B Outstanding Professor/Researcher, EB-1C Multinational Manager/Executive, EB-2 National Interest Waiver (NIW), family-based immigration, L-1 Visa, and H-1B Visa.
In 2019, Ava was invited to rejoin the team that won the bid for legal services for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympic Games and Paralympics, and she provided legal services on entertainment law and intellectual property law.
In 2020, during the global outbreak of COVID-19, Ava was pierced by the stories from her hometown of Hubei, China, and the U.S. Inspired to make a positive impact, she wrote stories aiming to uplift and inspire others. Ava joined the International Writing Program at the University of Iowa and her story, “Nine-Headed Phoenix’s Gift,” was published in UIowa Horizon Magazine. During her writing journey, she had the privilege of meeting remarkable individuals: those with an unwavering desire to turn their dreams into reality, and also those who were grappling with hardships and seeking peace of mind in a world full of uncertainties.
One day, Ava met a reader who was a brilliant engineer, and he said:
“A good lawyer is a good storyteller. A good lawyer can make stories come true.”
“Would you like to join me on this magical journey?”
Thus, Ava Li, together with her exceptional team, founded AVA LI LAW PLLC, specializing in intellectual property law, business immigration law and estate planning services.
And our story began in 2021.
