Ana Ching helps clients large and small with a variety of legal needs, including estate planning, nonprofit formation, and environmental and natural resource issues.
Ana is an experienced educator and community organizer. Before embarking on her legal career, she worked at a non-profit art and sustainability center in her home state of Hawaii. Ana began at Dunn Carney as part of the law firm’s Summer Associate program and joined the firm as an attorney after graduating from Lewis and Clark Law School. Ana brings to her practice extensive writing experience from her time as a law review Managing Editor, and from her work as a Lawyering Department Teaching Fellow, where she assisted first-year law students in honing their legal writing skills. While attending Lewis & Clark, Ana was an active member of her school’s Student Bar Association and an advocate for programs supporting law student and lawyer well-being. Upon graduating, faculty and staff members named Ana to the school’s Cornelius Honors Society, which recognizes students based on their distinguished scholarship, leadership, and contributions to the community.
In her time away from the law firm, Ana can be found swimming laps at her local pool or curling up with a classic mystery novel, especially one by her favorite author, Agatha Christie.
