It is with great pleasure and excitement that my team and I announce our upcoming merger with a distinguished Mountain West law firm, Fennemore Craig, P.C. This transition is monumental in allowing our team to better serve our clients, as well as provide additional resources to expand our reach of serving individuals and businesses in need of immigration and other legal services.

We are proceeding with business as usual as we work through this transition. And as you see the change from MC Law to FC Law happening, I want to emphasize that our commitment to our clients and community partners has remained the same. All the legal knowledge, customer service, support staff, our address and phone numbers will remain the same but the opportunities for a broader and more sophisticated coverage our group can bring through Fennemore Craig will increase clients’ satisfaction and provide continues success to bring high quality services to our global clientele.
