This past Saturday, L&L Immigration Law, PLLC celebrated the opening of its second office in Williamsburg, Virginia with a "Gran Inauguración" (Grand Opening in English). Approximately 50 members of the community attended to show their support and meet our attorneys. Visitors were able to walk through our offices and enjoy light refreshments. Many inquired about the artwork on our walls, much of which was obtained from several visits to Latin America.
Olga Torres, President of the Hampton Roads Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (HRHCC), officiated a ribbon cutting ceremony and presented us with a certificate from the Chamber. Ms. Torres welcomed us to the community and expressed her desire to continue working with our law firm in the future. The children in attendance got into the action as well, helping to hold the ribbon we cut to commemorate opening the doors of the new office.
Visitors also questioned how often we planned to staff the office. For the immediate future, either Laura or I will be in the Williamsburg office at least every other week. A schedule is posted outside the door with days an attorney will be in Williamsburg. We plan to start spending more time in Hampton Roads as demand for our services increases.
We were happy to welcome several parishioners from the church where we gave presentations through De Vecino a Vecino, a student organization that Laura founded in 2009. We were also thrilled that two current law students, Courtney Thomas and Gary Godman, volunteered their time during final exams to ensure our event was a success. And of course, we couldn't have pulled this off without the help of our biggest cheerleader in Williamsburg, Linda Flores. The effort each of these individuals put into the event was incredible.
We'd like to thank everyone who came to our grand opening, and we look forward to working with the Williamsburg community in the future. To inquire about our schedule in Williamsburg, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at: 571.429.3439.
