On Feb. 13, 2013, the USCIS approved a challenging L-1A case we helped our client save.
This case was initially filed for the client by another law firm. The client actually was already on L-1 status and was filing for extension. The attorney who handled the petition, however, made many mistakes in the applications. He also did not respond well upon receiving the Request for Additional Evidence from the USCIS. As issues raised by the government were not appropriately addressed, the case was eventually denied even thought the client has invested about $1.5 Million into the US, and has several employees already.
As a result of the denial, client immediately became out of status. He and his child, who was in the middle of the semester, had no choice but to leave the US. Prior to their departure close to the end January, 2013, the client through referral came to our office and sought our help. Attorney Stewart Lin took over the case. Upon analyzing the case, he found the rampant problems in the previous filing. He used great effort helping the client reorganize the whole package, and wrote a detail and convincing petition letter to the USCIS. The new application was granted in 10 days. Our client, certainly, is ecstatic and will soon come back to the US with his child.
