Editor's Comments of the Day
The origin of ILW.COM is as a directory of attorneys.
With the launch of our redesigned Find
a lawyer page we are solidifying our core. The entire
back end of the feature has been redesigned to allow for
more efficient searches and to allow attorneys to be able
to update their pages on their own. The new look for the
front end is cleaner and easier to read. We currently
have over 400 attorneys listed in the directory. Attorneys
who sign up for a listing get web page which they can
modify on their own at any time through means of a password.
Some may question why an attorney would want to be listed
here among the competition. There are several reasons.
Since we are a one stop shop for immigrants, this is where
the people needing the services of an immigration lawyer
can be found. Just as in an earlier age lawyers would
make sure they were listed in the yellow pages, this is
the place to be listed in the Internet age. ILW.COM lawyers
can also hold moderated chats in our chat room have access
to our soon to be released case tracking software and
have their web pages indexed in our immigration info section.
The question is why would an attorney not want to be listed,
rather than why would he be. If your firm is not listed
yet go to Listing and Membership to sign up for a free trial membership.
