I have a pending H1-B petition and I was laid off today. Can I still get H1-B approval provided my current company does not revoke my LCA/petition? I’m currently on F1 STEM OPT and I have an approved H4 EAD that kicks in next month when my F1 expires. Is it possible to have H1-B and H4 together? Any thoughts on what’s valid and what should be done?
Has anyone been fired or unexpectedly laid off? And care to share their experiences post being let go? Often times people feel this is the worst thing that could happen to them. I have to be honest I’m not convinced it is

🏆 Inspo Thread 🏆
Getting laid off is tough—let's use this thread to lift each other up and share any inspiration or encouragement you've encountered while navigating this difficult time.
I have not been on a project for over 3 months. Since I joined, I have been put in training. The training got extended by a month and now it's close to 4 months since I joined and without a project.
What should I do? People say that I'm lucky to get paid without doing any work, but it is stressing me out. I need the experience. The uncertainty is freaking me out, with rumours of layoffs and the certification program and all.
How do I get into a project? How long do I have to wait more?
9 weeks after being laid off ... I got an offer today that far surpasses everything I’ve hoped for in consulting... low travel, no utilization worries and no sales bogey. I’m glad I kept my tech skills up.
I was laid off yesterday due to change in my departments objectives, does anyone know of any Medicare Advantage opportunities in the Payer Space that align with IT and Operations?
Anbody know the extent of the layoffs here?
My friend got laid off from better in November 1st week due to unknown reasons and since then she is looking for a job with good base.

Expected salary : 7-10 lpa base
I was affected by layoffs about a month ago and urgently looking for a good immigration lawyer. The lawyer should be experienced in handling this 60 day grace period situation and developing alternate strategies - such as change of status to B1/B2 or applying to jobs from India. There is a lot of noise and wrong information going in the market so looking for good recommendations.
I have very little time left for my grace period to end and need a consultation soon. Thanks

Have a PI case in Pennsylvania where a young child suffered serious injuries and will require 24/7 care from his parents the rest of his life. It seems like PA does not recognize a filial loss of consortium for the parents unless there is a wrongful death of the child… or does it? Any fishes able to chime in on that?

My laptop died. IT needs to check it physically. I’m 300 miles away from the nearest office and 1000 miles away from my office. I’ll be driving there first thing tomorrow - if you were a partner, would you be pissed that I’ll probably have to take a day off even if I’m at an office? Is it my fault that I’m out of town?
Anyone have advise on what the legal market looks like in Austin for a second year litigation associate? Want to move in house.
Does anyone deal with constant disrespect in the workplace due to their age ? It’s crazy how secretaries are placed on a pedestal here because they are older and I guess have been here longer? But it’s becoming so draining. Beyond the petty things, I requested off for an event months ago and am now being told I may need to come in because the secretary requested off too( even though I told her about the day off months ago. For background there is an alleged rule that we cannot both be off)
Any tips on approaching the subject of going on reduced hours or part time? No kids, just want more work life balance.
I need to join a firm and practice group that has sufficient support for its first years (going into second years), doesn’t just throw them into a trial by fire, and has a decent WLB. Does anywhere exist like this in NYC?
I recently left private practice (civil litigation) and started an in-house gig that I really love. I am working on a few projects with another attorney who has been in-house for their entire career, but is more senior than I am. I’m experiencing defensiveness from them on assignments that the GC has asked us to work on jointly. I am wondering if anyone has found themselves in a similar situation when making the move in-house. Is there anything I can do to improve the working relationship?
Recruiters are completely, utterly useless and will do nothing but waste your time. Change my mind. Just venting.
Anybody have info re Barnes & Thornburg? Hours/WLB/WFH/Comp/Bonus? Eyeing either Dallas or Atlanta. Any info is helpful. Thank you!
10 billable hours this week so far… is this normal for a first year associate during this time of the year? (Transactional)
Is it true that it’s exceedingly difficulty to transition from insurance defense work (7+ years) to either commercial litigation or an in-house position? I’m worried about staying on this path for too long, becoming pigeon holed and not being able to get out of it.
Is there a corporate / transactional job out there where you work predictable hours, maybe a weekend here and there each month, but are able to maintain some semblance of a life? I’m a 3rd year assoc and enjoy my work, but need time for certain personal things (family, health). I have an MBA and am willing to move into more of a business driven role. Recently went from a V50 to a large boutique and still haven’t found much improvement in schedule control. Does in house do this or is that a myth?
Does anyone have any insight on Carlton Fields? Particularly the Atlanta office, though any information about firm culture, work, good or bad is appreciated.
What do you do when you follow a partner’s instructions to the T, but they end up criticizing your work product and by extension your competency? Do you politely push back or just take it?
SOS to anyone in the Austin, Texas area! About to be 3rd year associate with experience in financial services, bankruptcy, regulatory compliance (mostly consumer and bank focuses) and litigation. Can’t stand my tiny firm after being here for over a year. Keep making it to final round interviews for roles (in-house, mid-size firms) I’m probably a bit “under-qualified” for but no luck. Looking for any advice on firms/companies to look at. I’ll also happily accept any jokes to make me feel better.
Not a lawyer specific question, but since many of us have crazy student loan debt thought I’d ask here. Why on earth isn’t there a conversation around the predatory interest rates on student loans? I feel like it would be so easy for the federal government to slash those rates, then people would actually pay back their loans, and it would be so much better for so many. We are instead having exclusively conversations about loan forgiveness but why no love for reduction in interest?
Anyone have a good response to RFP template/sample? Jury rigging something right now but, man, there has gotta be a better way.

I was talking to a recruiter who has worked through two previous recessions. She said that firms will typically cuz non-equity partners and counsel who don't have their own book. Then cut associates who've stayed on because the firm needed the bodoes and not because they excel at their job.
