[Time to Read: 3 mins] 2015 has just begun and already we have exciting news to share from SMA Law!

New Year’s News  #1

The Melbourne, Florida office of SMA Law Firm was launched as of January 1, 2015.  Launching a Florida office was a logical step for SMA, given the large number of immigrants and Latin-based businesses located in the state. It is one of the top destinations for the expansion of companies and start-ups from Latin America.

New Year’s News #2

As of January 1st, we have launched an affiliate office relationship with a UK-based immigration and international law firm based in London, Nabas Legal Group. This relationship allows us to have a local office presence and help in receiving documents used for processing U.S. visas through the U.S. Embassy in London, which is one of the most highly trafficked U.S. Embassies in the world.  The affiliation also creates a more local presence for all of our European clients.

New Year’s News #3

Beginning January 15, I will be doing weekly broadcasts every Thursday at 3 pm on Google Hangouts/Google+. The broadcasts each week will alternate between English and Spanish (and perhaps occasionally with Chinese interpretation). Stay tuned or contact us for more information!

The broadcasts will then be put on the SMA YouTube channel, so if you can’t watch when it airs, within 24 hours, the show should be available on the YouTube channel.

New Year’s News #4

On the 24th of February I will be teaching a three-hour Continuing Legal Education (CLE) course in New York City. The course topic is Visas for Foreign Companies, Entrepreneurs and Investors.

The year is off to an exciting start for us! Thanks for being a part of it!
