Change and renewal
November, the month of fall, is also a season of change, with the leaves changing colors and trees changing their looks. November has also been a month of change for us. We moved to our new office at 1827 Independence Square in Atlanta. In the spirit of Thanksgiving we want to send special thanks to our general contractor and construction crew, electrician, HVAC and other contractors working on our new space for getting us into a beautiful, warm and functional work space. 
A Life-Changing Decision

Our general contractor is also a former client of ours and here is his immigration story:

It all began with a small dream and a great vision. I owned a small construction business in Israel. In 2004 my family and I decided to open a branch of my construction business in Atlanta because we wanted a better future for our family. After asking for referrals for a good immigration lawyer who could help me, I met attorney Karen Weinstock who explained to me the immigration process. Karen was very knowledgeable and creative and guided me and my family very well to get the right work visa and after that a green card for me and my family. From there it was a short route to fulfill our dream.

I arrived in the U.S. over 10 years ago with my wife, 3 kids, 4 suitcases and lots of aspirations. I prepared a business plan, set goals and through a lot of hard work the company built a reputation and got exposed to a larger target market. We had a very humble beginning and building the company in the first few years was hard. The recession in 2007 and 2008 was very difficult, and hit the construction industry very hard. We went through it with a few scratches but came out stronger. Now my company is building a new house for my family in Johns Creek.

Today, my company is involved in both residential and commercial construction and remodeling, including new homes, additions, basements, kitchens, bathrooms and commercial space construction. We provide our clients with creative solutions to their space needs and specialize in speed of completing projects. We are very thankful to Karen Weinstock and her team for helping us in this journey. 

If you have a construction project that you need a reliable contractor for, you can contact Yaniv: Empire Construction at You will be as satisfied with the results as we are with our new office! Thanks Yaniv and team! Great job! 

Change is very important to evolve. It is necessary to improve and grow. However, it is as important to not forget where we are coming from and to keep the people we love by our side. In your holiday travels and life journey, make sure you have travel companions who enrich your journey and remember to tell them how much you appreciate them.
