Comment: ILW.COM Is Expanding - The ILW.COM team continues to grow thanks to the support of our readers, customers and friends. Unfortunately, growth brings its own problems - space being one of them. Moving is disruptive, especially for growing businesses. We are fortunate, in our office building in midtown NYC, an office has been empty right next door to us since the recession began in 2008. Yesterday, the wall dividing our office from the empty office next door was brought down. To see some pictures of our new office space, go here. We look forward to continue serving the immigration law community, bringing you the latest news and diverse voices on immigration through Immigration Daily as well as bringing to practitioners across the country the best minds in immigration law through our seminars, workshops and books. In addition, we continue to serve the bar through our marketing services and document digitalization services consequent to our partnership with SpeedyScanning. We welcome your comments at
