foreigner / chance to take the exam and get job ?

Hi all!  
 
I am a Canadian-Chinese. I got my bachelor degree of mechanical engineering in 1993 in China. Then I was hired by a patent firm as a patent assistant. I passed the exam and became a registered patent agent in 1994, then worked in this patent firm for 5.5 years as a patent agent.  My daily work was consultation and writing patent applications for the applicants. Then I immigrated to Canada, finished a two year college program with a computer programmer diploma.  Then I was hired as software developer, web developer for the past three years. I got my Canadian citizenship. Now my husband will relocate to Fremont, California. Again I am thinking if I can go back to the patent field in US.
 
How high do u think my chances to get a job in the US are? In a law firm? Or in a corporation? Am I qualified to sit for the patent agent exam of US?
 
Thanks for your advices guys! This is really important to me!

Cy, please clarify.  You wrote "I passed the exam and became a registered patent agent ..."
 
Were you a patent agent in the United States?  If so, did you somehow lose your agent status?

Perhaps, she is talking about passing patent bar in China.

Firms would be drooling over you.   China seems to be the "trendy" market to chase right now.
