H1B Visa Filing Deadline is Fast Approaching!
We are fast approaching the April 1st deadline for the filing for new H-1B visas for the 2008 to 2009 Fiscal Year (FY 08-09). H-1B Petitions for FY 08-09 must be received by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security ("DHS"), Citizenship and Immigration Services ("USCIS") on April 1st, 2008. If you do not begin to make preparations as early as possible then you will be unable to secure an H-1B Visa.
Backlog in Citizenship Applications Will Take Nearly 3 Years to Complete
Those who thought the name check problem is a crisis, should look at the Citizenship disaster. It will take almost three years for United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to clear the naturalization backlog due to a volume in applications last summer, USCIS officials say.

I trust you know how much all of us at the Spreckels Organ Society appreciate your incredible generosity in providing legal assistance with the visas required by the international artists last year during our International Summer Organ Festival. We consider it an honor that you and your firm provided this service, and were delighted to publicize your firm in our concert materials. George H.

That's good news on the approval of our 3 executive L1A visas. You fought a tough RFE, but we won. We are pleased to be working with you. KB is also bringing passports tomorrow again to the US Embassy in Tashkent for visa processing. We look forward to his arrival to the US. Sarvar

I wanted to thank again and again for obtaining my E1 Treaty Trader visa for me. The process was not easy, especially since our trade was all based on Technology. You knew the law, and was able to craft an outstanding file to be presented to Immigration. We are now ready to take the business to the next level. Toda Raba

Thanks for helping me with my marriage-based immigration case. You were very accessible - taking my calls, returning my messages and emails promptly. You answered all my questions. I was most impressed and relieved that you attended the immigration interview with me and my wife. You made the whole process streamline and simple. You really know your stuff, and you're a nice, friendly guy as well. Shane P.
