[Q] Does the fact that an immigration attorney is located in Southern CA have any advantages?
Generally, where the immigration attorney is located should not matter. However, if the immigration is based near the project into which you are investing, the attorney could potentially visit the premises.
Also, when it comes to EB-5 cases, being located in Southern CA offers a convenient opportunity for the immigration attorney to attend several CSC EB-5 forums and CSC general forums that are held throughout the year at Laguna Niguel, CA location, the home of California Service Center which has the exclusive jurisdiction for adjudication of all EB-5 cases. This means the immigration attorney can easily attend these CSC forums and ask questions and clarifications on EB-5 law.
For example, Irvine, CA is less than 30 minutes away from 24000 Avila Road, Laguna Niguel, CA where the CSC is located.
