I have earned my J.D. and L.L.M. degrees from Columbia University School of Law, New York, New York. I also have earned a Master of Law from Peking (Beijing) University School of Law, China. My family law experience started from 1996 at the Center for Women's Law and Legal Services of Peking University, the first Chinese non-governmental legal aid service for women highly praised by Ms. Hillary Clinton in her memoir. My legal career continued in one of the largest international law firms in the world. I established my own practice in April, 2004. I bring to the practice of family law a deep appreciation of differences among countries in substantive law, judicial procedures, legal environment, language and culture. The New York Law Journal named Law Office of Rong T. Kohtz as one of the three Best Judicial Enforcement Providers (International) in 2012 and in 2013.
