About the Law Office of Amy A. Long, PLLC
The Law Office of Amy A. Long, PLLC is a partly brick and mortar and partly web-based (or “virtual”) law firm devoted exclusively to immigration legal representation.
Technology has changed how businesses operate and people communicate with each other all over the globe. We are able to stay connected to one another in ways that previously could not be imagined. This law office currently represents clients from various states across the U.S. as well as other countries, through now commonplace technological means such as email, Skype, telephone and a form-based client portal.
Many clients may be unaware that some law firms offer online (or virtual) legal representation, and therefore have not been able to imagine it as a convenient option. Not only is there no need to interact in person, it is the preferred form of representation for many clients. It saves clients a trip to my office in their otherwise busy schedules, reduces the carbon footprint, and lowers overhead costs.
Immigration law is considered federal law, meaning most states attorney ethics rules allow an attorney who is not licensed in a given state to represent clients from that state. As a result immigration lawyers have been able to offer nationwide and worldwide representation.
However, we understand that some human interaction may be necessary and/ or helpful. For this reason we always have a consultation before chosing to work with each other. Currently, the initial consultation can be in person (our office is conveniently located in Alexandria, VA), over the phone, or through Skype at the client’s election.
