Experienced Immigration Attorney – Business Immigration

About You: You are a highly motivated, experienced immigration attorney who enjoys being part of a team – even while working remotely! You feel confident jumping into a position with minimal supervision and are comfortable managing a high volume of work with consistently excellent work product, working alongside and managing paralegals, drafting, reviewing/revising petitions/applications and audit/RFE responses, conducting consultations, and learning new technology, systems and processes. You enjoy working in an environment where your input is valued and wanted, and you enjoy making meaningful contributions to the practice.

About Us: We are a boutique law firm in Richmond, VA. Our team helps companies, families, and individuals meet their professional and personal goals through employment-based and family-based immigration. We take pride in excellent client service, with a focus on streamlining using technology and systems. We are a fun, energetic, LGBTQ+ and dog friendly group looking for someone who fits well on our team.

We Believe:

  • Work-life balance shouldn't just be a catch phrase. We pride ourselves in recognizing the importance of disconnecting from work and spending time with family, friends, or by one's self as crucial to life and career longevity and happiness. Because of this, we offer a substantial PTO package as well as a mandatory 5-day break in the Spring or Fall and we close our offices for one week during the Winter holiday season.
  • Teamwork is at the core of our company. Our entire team works collaboratively toward the realization of our collective goal to provide quality and empathetic client service and deliver superior work product. We invite engagement and communication and equally value the contributions of all team members. Working together and respecting one another is the key to our success.
  • Our clients are our partners. We would not have the opportunity to help people realize their dreams if our clients did not trust us with their immigration journey. We honor their trust by producing the highest quality work and treating each client with compassion and understanding. Communication and transparency are key to maintaining our client relationships and we strive to keep clients informed, anticipate their needs, and proactively address their questions and concerns.
