Giving you confidence and control over your immigration process.


Our goal is to make sure you have confidence and control over your legal process.

Dealing with the government is daunting, and you need an attorney who explains immigration or adoption options clearly and avoids confusing legal jargon. We want to give you control and confidence over your legal process. At Poarch Thompson Law, we commit ourselves to friendly, down-to-earth service. Our team of attorneys honestly advises you on how best to achieve your immigration or adoption goals.

Our attorneys and paralegals guide you through the process from start to finish to ensure you understand every step and every requirement. We pride ourselves in the fact that the majority of our clients are referrals from other attorneys, former clients, and client friends and family members.

Families Require Love not DNA.

Individual & Family Immigration

We believe that everyone should have the right to choose and pursue the life they want. We’ve been helping immigrants seeking a new life, and a new beginning for over 19 years. 

As immigration attorneys in Virginia, we help families, employers, workers, asylum seekers and a broad range of individuals to complete and successfully navigate the immigration process in Virginia and across the southeastern US.

Business Immigration

One in six workers in Virginia are immigrants. We support businesses that need the competitive edge by hiring the right people. We have partnered with many local agencies and helped coordinate stakeholder briefings for regional government and organizations on immigration challenges and how to overcome them.

We specialize in firms looking to invest and grow in the southeastern US region.


It’s often said you cannot choose your family. Well, with adoption you can and you do. We never grow tired of seeing new families being created and starting out on a new life together.

The process of adoption brings reward beyond compare, but it can be time-consuming and requires persistence. It is essential to keep in mind that everyone is working toward the same goal—ensuring the safety and well-being of children.
