I am interested in discussing joint marketing efforts with other solo practitioners (DC, VA, MD area) where we could have 1-2 lawyers within each legal specialty. I am federal practitioner (bankruptcy, tax, immigration, federal compliance, employment),so I could refer many other types matters to a joint group. We could maintain our solo practices, but have more joint marketing
Thinking about buying a house/condo. Single here. I have about $70K in savings and stocks combined. $110K in 401K, no outstanding loans and credit card balances. I am comfortable paying up to $1800/month for mortgage. Looking for suggestions on my readiness to become a home owner.
I'll be joining the consulting world very soon and am thinking about getting a new personal credit card.

I am almost 2 years into my H1B. They haven’t started my I140 but when I joined told me that I would be eligible in a year of which I am coming up on in this Oct. I got a new offer today but they told me that they would apply I140 after a year from when I join. The pros of the new one is TC more than 18k with sign-on of 15k (not sure clauses for this) and better wrk-life bal). My question is, how long into H1B is it advisable to have an I140 applied for. Would 3-4 years into my H1B be too late?
On H1B with approved I140 - Have 2 offers in hand - Publicis Sapient & Avionos. What would you suggest in case you are familiar with both of these companies?

Have a phone screen with a technical recruiter at Amazon for PM role. Can any Amazon folks provide insight on what to expect and what they are looking for to move forward?
How to deal with an exploding offer? I interviewed for a company and was very excited for it. 1 recruiter interview & 1 with a couple team members. Then I got a short term offer a few days later, tried to negotiate and they came back a week later with a final offer. Rate stayed the same but was told I need to answer by next day. Honestly the process has made me so stressed. I'm interviewing with another company at the same time and their process feels warm & they take their time answering
