Bijoux Ngwanda’s unique vision and personal experiences led to the birth of Bijoux Ngwanda Law Office, PPLC, a full-service Immigration Law firm, providing services in Family Immigration, Large and Small Business Employment Visas, Sports Visas, Investor Visas, and Deportation Defense.
As an immigrant, Bijoux had firsthand experience with the complexities and challenges navigating the U.S. Immigration system. Born in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country ripped by civil war and political instability for the last decade, Bijoux and her family migrated to the U.S. for better opportunities. Bijoux understands that determination and endurance are essential in pursuing one’s passion in making it a reality.
Her determination and endurance sets her apart from other lawyers and her life experience and unique insight into the US immigration system serves to assist others seeking legal assistance to do the same.
Bijoux’s background naturally influenced her passion to advocate for people whose voices needed to be heard. This passion led her to pursue her career in law. During law school, Bijoux worked at the Jacksonville Legal Aid Society where she helped Refugees, Parolees and Asylees with their immigration needs. This deep experience and volume of work exposed her to the complex legal procedures of the US immigration system.
After completing law school, Bijoux worked in Corporate America handling Contract disputes and working with other lawyers on various contract litigation preparation. After over 4 years in the corporate world and feeling unfulfilled, Bijoux decided to return to what she loved and is passionate about: helping people.
Bijoux moved to the DMV area to pursue her passion and start her own private practice in Immigration Law.
Being fluent in numerous languages including English, French, Lingala, Kikongo as well as intermediate language skills in German and Swahili enables Bijoux to effectively communicate with so many people.
Bijoux has travelled the world and has been exposed to different cultural experiences. Her love for travelling and her ability to speak multiple languages has helped her to connect with and understand clients on a much deeper cultural level.
Bijoux is licensed in the State of Kentucky, which permits her to practice Immigration Law in the DC Metropolitan Area and other States within the U.S. She is an active member of the Kentucky Bar Association and is in good standing with the Bar.
