Stop advertising a lawyer. I find him very speculative. He wants everyone to come to his site and you are falling for it.

stupid comments considering one could say the same about IV if looking at it from the perspective of some of the posts here.

If you have nothing nice to say, maybe saying nothing may be the nicest thing. Sometimes links like this are actually very useful - especially to people coming here for the first time (or first few times)

You can do hero worship of your lawyer whoever it is. I will not.
Ask him/her if he will do advocacy effort for you or sue USCIS since all his clients are struggling in the long wait and spending a lot of money on immigration consultations, fees etc.

Ask him if he contribute to IV instead?

Ask him to give you priority instead of your employer who gives him business every year.

Ask him why AILA is not giving you regular updates through him. As clients of lawyers we should get regular updates and prompt responses. What are they doing about country caps removal, end of retrogression, recapture etc. I mean they are so powerful, so why can't they do it for us so that we no longer need lawyers and save a lot of money? Arn't we all spending thousands of $s on immigration attorneys ? and only few of us pay only $25 and many are free members and get such a good service from IV website. We all hate to pay a single dollar to IV and accuse IV core of asking contributions every time there is a drive but IV still helps us. They need to learn from us.

Why none of us has the courage to do it, but we have the courage to trash talk IV and blame its core for not working hard enough for our $25.

Teli,
Which line of my post suggests that I am advertising for him? If someone posts a link from a news paper, does it mean that he/she is advertising for the news paper. I just found it on his website and found it relevant for us so I posted it. For your information, I am not his client.

He's not my lawyer. I just hear of him out here in the various posts.

As for the things you ask below - why should he do any of the things you ask for - its none of his business. Or actually, its none of our business to tell him how to conduct his business.

Don't want to get into a mudslinging fest here - just wanted to point out that sometimes posts like the original one are useful.

Default some thing interesting from one of the newsletter article

Employees should be particularly wary of having their adjustment applications handled by the employer’s attorneys. If there is a dispute between the employer and employee, as when the employee terminates employment and moves on, there is an inherent conflict of interest. The attorney may continue to represent both side, but only if the conflict is disclosed and explained, and both sides explicitly consent to waive the conflict.

Similarly, the employer’s attorney must provide the employee with complete copies of everything filed in connection with the employee’s application for adjustment of status. This application is personal to the employee and has nothing to do with the employer. If the employer’s attorney files the employee’s adjustment application, he or she is acting on behalf of the employee and owes the employee a fiduciary duty of loyalty. If the CIS issues a request for evidence (RFE) or notice of intent to deny (NOID), the attorney must act in the best interests of the employee if he or she undertakes to respond.

Unfortunately, many employer attorneys see their first loyalty to the employer and not to the employee. If you are uncomfortable having your employer’s attorney represent you, you have the right to change lawyers and retain someone on your own.

For most Desis, immigration attorney is GOD. And the words coming out of the mouth of Immigration Attorney is the ULTIMATE TRUTH. We as desi community is happy to hero worship someone who kicks us everyday by conspiring to delay our green card application, not pick-up/return our phone calls/emails. That's how we as desis love, to be treated as trash. That's why we worship immigration lawyers as GODs.

In my opinion most immigration lawyers are part of Employer-Lawyer nexus to exploit employees. Most lawyers are in the business of finding loop holes to make more money for the employer (NOT EMPLOYEE).

"In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress." - John Adams, 1776

In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills."

I find Ron Gotcher's website very informative. It’s your choice not to read or to disagree with the speculative part, but he definitely is doing a fantastic job of educating the immigration community by answering the simplest of questions. I don’t care if this is a marketing tool for him, but I get a huge relief on the verge of getting laid off, when he quotes from the law-book to assure me that it’s ok to be unemployed after AOS. He takes the time to do that for me. There are not too many out there doing the same!
(just don’t jump on me yet saying that there are other attorneys out there answering the same question, as I just said it as an example)

Did anyone read the OP's post or the newsletter before they decided to bash him/her for "advertising" Ron Gotcher's newsletter?

All the OP is trying to do is direct people to information that might prove helpful.

And the newsletter has articles on issues besides visa bulletin predictions, so not everything coming out of Ron G's mouth is speculation.

I read it, and I found the H1B vs EAD article particularly informative, better than any of the other EAD vs H1B articles I have read in the past.

Whats your skillset, I can try to get you a project. No offense, but you do seem to have too much time to loose-comment on others and contribute nothing.

pd_recapturing...Thanks for the link. I've read it earlier and it is very useful.

ganguteli...what's up your ass? pd just inform the community over a informative link and you go berserk about "hero worship", "trash talk IV" and your $25 contribution. Dude, are you serious?
