I am a junior attorney in a busy immigration law firm. I decided that I would be well situated to the field of immigration law because of my background and the opportunity working in this position would allow me to connect with my community here in Metro Detroit. I recently moved back into the area after living in the Lansing area for a few years and was thrilled to find something close to Detroit and the area I grew up around. I took a step outside the box and decided to draft a cover letter that really connected with why I wanted to be an Immigration Attorney and how I thought I would be well suited for the area. I had little experience in the Immigration Law Field and knew it would be a long shot but I sent my resume around to what seemed like every Immigration Attorney and Law Firm in the Detroit area. Instantly responses of support, and regret that there were no opportunities flowed in, as well as some requests for more information and eventually interviews. I was willing to start at the bottom and work my way up, having little experience and just starting out in the legal profession I was ready to do what I had to do, especially in this economy. I am currently working at a busy and knowledgeable Immigration Law Firm in Farmington Hills, Michigan. We serve clients in a variety of Immigration law related issues. From family based to corporate immigration law and we can provide our services worldwide, which was very appealing to me.
The Senior Attorneys at my firm have more than 20 years experience and have been great in offering me comprehensive training and opportunity for professional growth. I am very happy with my decision to remain in Metro Detroit, and look forward to the opportunity to grow as a young professional with this great state and metropolitan area.
