Miki Matrician became a partner at WR Immigration when Chin & Curtis joined forces with the firm. Her practice focuses on managing all aspects of employment-based immigrant and nonimmigrant cases for multinational corporations, high tech companies, startup entities, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations. Having experienced the immigration process herself, Miki strongly believes that educating clients and providing transparency regarding the labyrinthian process is empowering for her clients and is as important as executing a comprehensive and carefully considered immigration strategy.

Miki has enjoyed presenting at American Immigration Lawyers Association (New England), Alliance of Business Immigration Lawyers, Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education Center (MCLE), and Japanese business groups in Boston. She has also spoken at Boston College Law School and Suffolk University in forums relating to immigration law careers.  Miki has been selected for inclusion in the Super Lawyers Rising Stars from 2013 to 2021 and Best Lawyers’ Ones to Watch distinction for 2021 and 2022.

Miki is an active member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association; serving on the AILA Ethics Committee and New England AILA Board. She holds a J.D. from Boston College Law School and a B.A. in both Government and East Asian Studies from Wesleyan University. During law school, her student note was published in the Boston College International & Comparative Law Review, where she served as Senior Articles Editor. She also served as a judicial intern at the Executive Office for Immigration Review (Boston Immigration Court) and U.S. District Court, District of Rhode Island. 

A native of Nara, Japan, Miki is fluent in Japanese and previously worked as a professional translator, editor, and language teacher. Outside of the office, she enjoys yoga retreats and hiking with her family.
