How to Start and Build a Successful Immigration Law Practice

Fundamental changes in the legal marketplace, as well as in the structure of most law firms, have created new opportunities for lawyers to open their own law offices. Immigration law is a practice area that can be an obvious entry point to providing a much wider range of legal services to a growing group of clients. Immigration issues and questions are suddenly arising in a wide range of specialty areas of law, including: mergers and acquisitions, labor and employment, tax, estate planning, divorce, criminal and more.

Join our expert faculty of successful immigration attorneys as they offer insight on every aspect of starting your own immigration practice including:

  • The value of bar memberships;
  • Advance planning: a realistic financial analysis;
  • General configuration: solo? partnership?;
  • Equipping your office with the latest and greatest; and
  • Marketing in the 21st century.
