Our Vision


Atty. Stephen Bongolan

Atty. Stephen G. Bongolan

Member of New York Bar, Philippine Bar, and American Immigration Lawyers Association

Stephen Gallardo Bongolan, Esq. is a zealous and competent lawyer on his chosen field of U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Law. His passion on this field of Law is mainly due to his being an Immigrant himself- he is a Filipino who migrated here in the U.S.A., an immigrant who shares and feels the common sentiments, experiences and dreams of fellow immigrants. His passion and strong interest in the law might have been influenced by his father, a well-respected trial attorney before becoming a judge in the Philippines. In fact, he belongs to a family of lawyers as his grandfather has been also a reputable lawyer and legislator during his lifetime. Thus, law to him is a very familiar thing and may be ingrained in his veins.

He is a member of the New York Bar. Modesty aside, he took and passed the NY Bar exam on his first take. This is without mentioning that he did it merely by self-review, without attending any U.S. Law School or even a Bar Review Center. Prior to becoming a New York lawyer, he was a practicing lawyer in the Philippines in the areas of Criminal, Civil, and Labor Laws. He is the product of two law schools, San Beda College of Law and Arellano University School of Law where he graduated in 2004, topping 4 of the 8 Bar Review subjects in his class. Like the NY bar exam, he hurdled the Philippine Bar exam touted as the hardest professional licensure exam in the Philippines on his first try. His passion with the law is exemplified by his decision to hone his skills and earn expertise in his chosen field by undergoing apprenticeship in a New York Immigration Law Office, before embarking in his solo practice. Currently, he handles hundreds of Immigration cases. With his work ethic and diligence, he has provided his clients satisfaction, which he considers as the one which fuels his burning desire to continue his practice.

Aside from having a Bachelor’s degree in Law (LLB), he is also a degree holder of a Bachelor of Arts major in Economics conferred by the University of Santo Tomas, the oldest university in Asia. Though his U.S. license to practice law is with New York, he decided to live in Orlando, Florida and there put up his own Immigration Law practice. Providentially, Immigration law is a Federal law, hence, he can practice it in Florida or in any state and can accept clients wherever state they are located.
