Our firm has been serving the Virgin Islands since 1988. The attorneys and partners at this firm have over 75 years of combined legal experience both  here and abroad.  We have global expertise in the legal field that we apply in the Virgin Islands with our unique local perspective. The United States Virgin Islands is a group of islands located in the northeastern archipelago of the Caribbean Sea bordered by the Atlantic Ocean to the north and 111 miles east of Puerto Rico. The islands are officially known as the Virgin Islands of the United States and are part of the Lesser Antilles’ Leeward Islands. The U.S. Virgin Islands consists of three principal islands, St. Croix, St. John, and St. Thomas. The territory’s capital is Charlotte Amalie, located on the island of St. Thomas. The U.S. Virgin Islands were once part of the Danish West Indies, a colony of Denmark from 1814 to 1917, sold to the United States for $25M in gold in the 1917 Treaty of the Danish West Indies. The islands are an unincorporated territory of the United States, organized under the Revised Organic Act of 1954, a United States federal law that functions as its constitution.
