Areas of Practice

IMMIGRATION:

Immigration practice is one of the most complex areas of the law, changing almost daily and requiring expertise, attention to detail, and years of experience. Whether you are trying to bring a loved one from overseas, petitioning for a green card, changing your status, seeking an employment visa, applying for naturalization, or simply having trouble receiving a response from the immigration authorities we can help. Your case is as important to us as it is to you. We get results.




FAMILY LAW:

Family law in Virginia, especially divorce, requires a knowledge of the law to assure the protection of your property and income. If you are contemplating divorce or separation, you should consult us as soon as possible to make sure your rights are secured and you receive the full benefits of equitable distribution, spousal support, or child support. This is truly a situation where forewarned is forearmed. A complete understanding of all the factors, including the advantage of a property settlement agreement, will better enable you to make the decisions affecting your future.



PERSONAL INJURY:

Few things are more traumatic than a serious auto accident. The injuries, both psychological and physical, can be permanent or even life-threatening. If the accident was not your fault, the need for experienced legal representation as soon as possible is critical. We can assess the liability, the extent of your injuries, and the potential value of your case. We will advise you each step of the way until you achieve maximum recovery and we are able to obtain the fullest compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering, and lost wages.




WILLS:

The execution of a will can understandably be an emotional experience.  We do everything we can to make it as easy and comfortable as possible. This may be the only legal instrument over which you have complete control, distributing your assets as you wish. We will provide you with the recommendations that will enable you to meet your objectives and to protect your estate from unnecessary administrative expenses.





BUSINESS LAW:

Contracts, leases, the formation of corporations and other business entities, shareholder agreements, and civil litigation to resolve disputes are all involved in the practice of business law, requiring the skill, experience and creativity that we can provide.
