Thumbs up Please Contact Your Immigration Attorney Asap

Dear IV'ians,


Most of us have to go through a immigration attorney to file for our green card, and even though we had several people complaining about bad immigration attorney's, we still have majority of these attorney's who had a positive relationship with their clients in helping them achieve the green card dream.

No one can deny the fact that all the immigration attorney's survive on the immigrant community for their business or livelihood. Today IV needs their help yet again, the only difference being that they won't get paid for this. We urge every law firm/ attorney who visits IV to generously donate to the cause of IV. Consider helping IV as a small token of appreciation for the business the immigrants have been providing them for many years. I urge them again to donate ASAP so that the money can be used for the DC rally if needed.

Default Action Required: Letter to the attorney's

I have scribbled a letter to be sent to your attorney's requesting their help for the cause of IV. I consider this as the easiest of tasks you can ever do as this will not cost you anything, just a few seconds of your valuable time. You can even write this letter as anonymous to your attorney, if you are still afraid to come out of the darkness you have created around yourself. Moderators please keep this post at the top as we need greater participation from all the law firms who have a great relationship with all legal immigrants.


Dear ________,

I have been a client of your law firm availing your services for my immigration needs. I appreciate your law firms hard work in helping the immigrant community for the past several years and would hope that you will continue to keep all the good work in the coming years.

Since we all know that your law firm is a great supporter of legal immigration, I would sincerely request you to take one more step for the cause of the legal immigrants by donating generously to www.immigrationvoice.org . Immigrationvoice is a non profit grass root organization working deligently on behalf of all legal immigrants to end the retrogression and the other problems faced by them. They have successfully campaigned earlier to reverse the USCIS gaffe, and have been working closely with lobbyists and senators to provide relief to all the legal immigrants. They are organizing a huge rally in DC on september 18 to bring to the attention of capitol hill, the problems faced by legal immigrants.

Your donation will go long way in creating a good will towards all your clients seeking immigration benefits. It also stands as a testimonial about your dedication to the cause of immigrants and to prove that your motive is not just to make money from your clients but that you genuinely believe in their success. I urge you again to visit immigrationvoice.org and donate generously asap, and if you have any questions please send me an email or contact immigrationvoice.org directly.

Thanks for your co-operation in this regards,

Sincerely,
Your Client

I had some PM's asking me if they will be in trouble or if this will tarnish their image in front of their attorneys. Let me know if people have more fears than the one listed above.

Great Job Venkyct,

We need more people to follow your example. Forwarding this note will not cost them a penny but would help IV a great deal.

What can your organization do for me in return?

It might be good to mention in the letter that law firms Murthy/OH Law etc are supporting this effort.

Default Revised version!

Here's a modified version that includes lawyer names such as Matthew Oh, Murthy, Siskind and others, which should encourage your attorneys to raise to the occasion.


Dear ___________

You might remember me as a client of your law firm availing your services for my immigration needs. I appreciate your law firm's hard work in helping the immigrant community for the past several years and would hope that you will continue to keep all the good work in the coming years.

Since we all know that your law firm is a great supporter of legal immigration, I would sincerely request you to take one more step for the cause of the legal immigrants by acknowledging the efforts of www.immigrationvoice.org . Immigrationvoice is a non-profit grass root organization working deligently on behalf of all legal immigrants to end the retrogression and the other problems faced by them.

The organization was started in Dec 2005 by highly-skilled immigrants, and since then, the organization has grown to over 20,000 members, from various cross-sections of professions- healthcare, information technology, finance and academia. The organization has also raised over 150,000 USD in the past to advocate immigration reform for employment-based immigration, such as reduction in administrative processing backlogs as well as the recent July 2nd Visa Bulletin faux pas between the Dept. of State and USCIS. During this time, several hundreds of skilled professionals sent in flowers to the USCIS in peaceful protest, to reverse the July 2nd Visa Bulletin gaffe.

Our Efforts
- Immigration Voice works closely with policy makers and influencers, lobbyists and senators as well as immigration practitioners to provide relief to all the legal immigrants including efforts to remove the country-based limits on EB green cards, ability to apply for 485 even when visa numbers are not available (so that applicants can benefit from EAD and AP), removing the dependent numbers from the green card quota, etc.,.
- Other programs include free immigration advice attorney conference calls wherein lawyers such as Sonal Mehta and and Susan Henner have been featured.
- Additionally, Immigration Voice works with lawyers such as Greg Siskind (www.ilw.com) to review and strive for healthcare related reform.
- Several renown attorneys have acknowledged the efforts of Immigration Voice. These include Matthew Oh and Sheela Murthy. Ms. Murthy's firm has donated USD 5000 towards the efforts of Immigration Voice.

What is in the works?
- Immigration Voice is conducting a huge rally in DC on september 18 to bring to the attention of capitol hill, the problems faced by legal immigrants.

How Can You Help?
- Acknowledge the efforts of the organization via a mention on your website with a link to www.immigrationvoice.org. You could possibly have a small article stating that skilled professionals are participating in a Rally in Washington DC on Sept 18, 2007 to highlight Congressional inaction against reduction of processing backlogs and to request much needed reform for highly-skilled(employment-based) legal immigration.

- Donate to the cause. Your donation will go long way in creating a good will towards all your clients seeking immigration benefits. It also stands as a testimonial about your dedication to the cause of immigrants and to prove that your motive is not just to make money from your clients but that you genuinely believe in their success.

I urge you again to visit immigrationvoice.org and donate generously asap, and if you have any questions please send me an email or contact info@immigrationvoice.org directly.

Thanks for your co-operation in this regard,

Sincerely,
