Vanessa Wong


"Great and professional service. I had a case that needs to be submitted urgently, and WLW (Vanessa) offered great help on the submission. Would definitely recommend!" - Han Syu

Vanessa spends her days helping her clients navigate Australia’s fast-changing immigration system. She finds it especially rewarding to help clients through complex immigration matters and turn difficult scenarios into successful outcomes.

Vanessa joined the WLW family in 2022 as a migration lawyer, having previously worked at a number of law firms in Brisbane and Melbourne. She has always wanted to specialise in immigration law, and has acted on a number of migration cases, including complex partner visa matters, early on in her career.

Vanessa is fluent in Cantonese and Mandarin as she lived in Hong Kong for over a decade.

When Vanessa is not working, she loves trying out the newest foodie hotspots, doing Pilates and spending time with family and friends.
