We Are Looking to Hire an Associate Immigration Attorney

The time has come for the next stage in the growth of our firm. It will take a fair amount of hunting and gathering but we're confident we will find a great associate to join our team.

What is definitely helpful is that immigration lawyers tend to be a nice, interesting, hard-working group of people. Since we don't have to sue one another, this also helps keep the level of cordiality high and we help one another out as we battle the USCIS and the State Department instead.

We are aiming to bring our new attorney on board starting in August. Please spread the word and here are all the details on how to apply:
