Immigration attorneys are some of the most active in-field practitioners of law in the industry. Lawyers who are just starting out will quickly find themselves immersed in the subject and gaining significant experience. These attorneys can work in large practices or small, and in corporate firms or nonprofit organizations. They may pick up one or more foreign languages and can help out not just with immigration law, but also with any legal problems that their immigrant clients may encounter, from traffic violations to serious crimes.
Immigration law is also complex and constantly changing. Immigration attorneys must be willing to keep up with an ever-shifting landscape of law. Finally, immigration practice is about helping others. If you are looking for a law practice that will make a difference in individual lives, then immigration law may be just the field.
