Jonathan L. Moore
Jonathan is an Associate in the Immigration Practice Group. His practice focuses on advising businesses and individuals on U.S. immigration options and the preparation of cases in support of temporary visa petitions (such as H-1B, E, L-1, Q, O, and others), as well as permanent resident green cards for family-based and employment-based applications in all categories.
While in law school, Jonathan honed many skills that he now puts into practice for clients. He served as a Manuscripts Editor of the University of Richmond Law Review and authored several articles that have appeared in nationally-recognized publications. He was also an avid participant in a variety of activities outside the classroom, where he won both negotiation and trial advocacy competitions.
After graduating first in his law school class, Jonathan spent the first two years of his practice representing companies in civil litigation. He now brings these advocacy skills to bear on behalf of clients’ immigration needs.
