Daniel Huynh Mentioned in American Lawyer

Commemorating the 40th anniversary of the fall of South Vietnam, The American Lawyer spoke with several lawyers about their post-war experiences and how they came to choose careers in law.

Included in the reporting was Daniel Huynh, senior associate in Alston & Bird’s Intellectual Property Litigation Group. As highlighted in the article, Huynh’s father flew a surveillance plane to Thailand as South Vietnam’s capital fell and subsequently resettled in the United States, where he met his future wife, a former librarian at the U.S. embassy in Saigon, now Ho Chi Minh City.

Huynh, who is a board member of the National Conference of Vietnamese American Attorneys, noted that Vietnamese culture attaches a certain stigma to being a lawyer since the country historically had little experience with the legal profession. He added that is now changing with a new generation of Vietnamese-Americans and pointed out that the NCVAA now has 150 members with a roster of mentors for young lawyers.
