Immigration Law.

It is not the unauthorized practice of law for an attorney, not licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia, to maintain an office in Virginia for a practice limited exclusively to United States Immigration and Nationalization matters. See Rule 6.1 - 9 of the Rules of the Supreme Court of Virginia.

With regard to the attorney’s stationary, the UPL Committee is of the opinion that so long as the descriptive limitations with regard to the extent of the practice are contained on the letterhead, the letterhead is appropriate.
