New office is open!

Well, the new "Drew Law Office, pllc" is open for business at 82 Palomino Ln. Suite 602 in Bedford, NH. While I eagerly await the opening of the new US Citizenship and Immigration Services office across the street (scheduled for July 6) I have a lot of work to do. I know that I have stated elsewhere that I would post pictures once I was in the new location. But things are in no state to be photographed just yet. Unpacking of boxes and rearranging furniture will be the order of the day for several days to come. Come back soon - however - and the reports will start appearing with more frequency as things settle in here at the new location.
