Pitt Law grads have Virtual law firm

The Post Gazette has an article today about a pioneering "virtual law firm" specializing in immigration law and international business law.  The firm was founded by 2 recent Pitt Law grads, John Riley and George Ernst, who graduated in 2008 and 2007. With the cooling job climate for new lawyers in Pittsburgh, the two friends decided to start their own firm, specializing in intermational and immigration law. Ernst & Riley bills itself as a virtual law firm that hopes to reach a growing number of people seeking legal services through the Internet. The firm maintains an office in Monroeville, but handles the bulk of its work on a Web portal that allows clients to access information and ongoing updates on their cases.
