Capping Growth - USCIS announced yesterday that H-1B cap for fiscal year 2013 has been reached. June 11, 2012 was the final receipt date for new H-1B specialty occupation petitions requesting an employment start date in FY 2013. Many studies have shown that H-1B hiring is an integral part of hiring strategies of many multi-national companies. Now that an avenue of getting employees with the skills they need, here in the US, is closed to them for this fiscal year, they will need to look into expanding their workforces overseas instead. A wrong-headed policy of protecting US workers is resulting in driving of jobs overseas. The H-1b cap not only caps the aspirations of hard-working immigrants, but also the growth potential of US economy, and thereby the job prospects of US citizens. Please let us know your thoughts by writing to us at

Focus: New Media Marketing - Have you been struggling to market your practice in the face of the technological revolution? ILW.COM has worked with attorneys in confronting how to do this, and we would like to help you do the same. We can help you create a multi-faceted approach to market your practice using traditional and new media and techniques. We have experience creating all of the following - typically in some combination:

  • A traditional print book aimed at marketing your you practice by demonstrating your expertise in a particular area.
  • An Amazon Kindle e-version of the books described above to reach a wider audience.
  • An iphone/ipad application to promote the book, market your firm, and give some rudimentary information.
  • A micro-blog for the book at a custom domain address with an appropriate and memorable name. We will help you update it and build an on-line community around it. This micro-blog might also serialize some of the content of the book in digital form and drive traffic - and prospective clients - to your firm's website.
  • A Twitter feed to promote your book and use our proprietary methods to ensure it reaches as wide of an audience as possible.
  • A Google adwords campaign designed to drive as much traffic to your website or microblog as possible.
The community in need of immigration lawyers is a tech savvy one, whether it's domestic businesses or foreign national seeking to come to the U.S., so you need a way to reach that community that stretches beyond traditional book, radio, television, newspaper, or yellow pages advertising. Our comprehensive approach will ensure that your marketing effort will hit all targeted segments of the market. Not only can we publish your book and do everything referenced above, we can also help with content generation. To learn more about these opportunities, please see here or email
