Grant Me This Much: Obtaining Immigration Benefits From The USCIS Regional Service Centers

Over a year has passed since Congress interred legacy INS and gave birth to USCIS. Enough time has now elapsed to assess this new bureau, evaluate its practices, and get a sense of whether the agency has transcended the pangs of birth.

The consensus among immigration lawyers is decidedly morose. Old-timers bemoan the days when attorney fees were high and denials few. New practitioners wonder if they can survive the rising tide of delays, rejections, higher filing fees and mounting client disappointment.

Well, Immigration Lawyers, stop crying in your latte! Take positive action. Sign up for an ILW.COM three-part teleconference that will help you achieve winning ways with the USCIS Service Centers. Hear leading immigration lawyers offer specific and tangible strategies that can inject success into your immigration practice. Jump-start your attitude, sharpen your skills and refine your approach to immigration lawyering. Sign up today!
