At the Law Office of V. Thomas Langford, my mission is to learn and understand my clients' needs and the external factors affecting them so that I can aggressively and professionally represent them throughout the legal process.

I take the time to personally meet with each client on an individual basis so that I can understand my client's unique circumstances and legal needs. I use these meetings to clearly communicate my legal knowledge and experience, thereby enabling my clients to make well-informed decisions for themselves.

In my practice, I focus on these areas of immigration law:


    1. Applications for Naturalization
    2. Applications for Certificate of Citizenship
    3. Applications for Replacement of Naturalization Certificate


    1. family petitions for spouses, fiancees, children, parents and siblings
    2. Adjustment of Status in the United States for parents or spouses of United States citizens
    3.. Travel Documents such as reentry permits and advance parole for nationals with pending applications
    4. Work Authorization
    5. Consulate processing of immigrant visas at the U.S. consulate and Embassy abroad
    6. Preparation of Affidavits of Support and supporting financial documents for immigrant sponsorship


    1. B-2 Visitor Visas
    2. B-1 Business Visas
    3. R-1 Religious Worker Visas
    4. F-1 Student Visas
    5. J-1 Exchange Visitor Visas
    6. E-1/2 Treaty Trader/ Investor Visas


    1. H1B1 Professional Worker Visas
    2. L-1A Intra-Company Manager and Executive Visas

    5. I-9 compliance
    6. Work authorization for eligible dependents

Our philosophy is to provide a personalized attorney-client relationship based on each client's unique concerns and requirements.

I return telephone calls personally and promptly. I also make myself available and accessible by telephone so that clients can call with follow up questions and concerns throughout the legal process. I understand that my clients want to be well informed throughout the legal process. My clients can expect prompt personal service and uncompromising, quality legal representation delivered in a cost-effective manner. I am dedicated to full value for every dollar invested in legal services.

I am constantly seeking to improve my performance in order to be prepared for the challenges facing my clients. I keep pace with the latest innovations in the delivery of legal services by continually investing in training and technology. My work environment is based on diligent work effort, community involvement and a commitment to the profession.
