Any thoughts as to what I should/could do?

Immigration is something I'm looking into as well as I fine tune my Spanish.

I also agree with C1. Also think about a career in regulatory compliance. Many Compliance Officers have law degrees and do quasi legal work. Something to also think about and can be a rewarding career, without the burnout of being a lawyer.

Awesome thank you so much.

I'm not familiar with what a "Baby Bar" is, but could you take the bar in California (or another state that would let you) and then eventually just waive into Texas if you plan to stay there? I'm not sure what reciprocity in Texas is like.

VP/CC1 -

I read that for BK you’d have to be admitted at the district level in the state you wish to practice, thus potentially exposing myself to the same requirements and possibly a denial... when I asked for more info they said it would be a “case by case” thing...

More a less a “try it and find out”... which I’m not opposed to, yet if I can start to focus on something, or a few somethings that are more likely to strike gold I think it would serve me well to do so...

Have you done this? Or seen someone do this? This being licensed in one state practicing BK in other with minimal hoops?

Either way... thank you!! More fuel for my thought wagon... appreciate it.

So immigration law is a federal practice. You only need a state bar to practice it. Any state bar. Not even the one you live in. So for example, you can have the CA license and legally practice immigration law in Texas. Problem solved?

PSA - even if US CBP official doesn’t ask for latest i797A during re-entry, show it! Otherwise they update the i94 with the valid to date of the h1b visa stamp which if you have transferred companies doesn’t reflect the accurate date (most transfers have some extension). Learned the hard way but the correction process is smooth at least in Chicago.

Hi Everyone,

Need some inputs before making an important decision.
I have offer from Cognizant and they are promising that next quarter they will initiate my Canada visa. They are giving assurance when I spoke to them over call. Also, my current employer Accenture is also saying the same to retain me. Can I believe Cognizant? Also, Canada onsite is best in which company - Accenture or Cognizant. Please suggest based on your experience.

Thanks in advance!
