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.
