Napa, CA

The Vietnamese American Bar Association of Northern California (VABANC) was founded in 1998 to provide Vietnamese American attorneys with a vehicle for the unified expression of opinions and positions on matters of concern to all Vietnamese American attorneys, to encourage and promote the professional growth of its members, and to foster the exchange of ideas and information among its members and with the community at large.

Established in 2010, the VABANC Law Foundation is the 501(c)(3) charitable arm of VABANC.  The VABANC Law Foundation’s mission is to promote justice and access to legal services and resources for those in the community, particularly those from under-resourced or underserved communities.
