GREEN CARD APPROVAL!
Successful Green Card Issuance
Attorney Katie Spero successfully represented a client who was awarded lawful permanent residence through a complex employment-based application. The position in this case works nationwide and has no fixed work site. A job offer of this type requires special considerations during each stage of the green card filing and can be difficult to explain properly to the Department of Labor and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. The beneficiary has been in the U.S. for 14 years, and this green card issuance is a new phase in her career and her ability to make the U.S. her permanent home.

Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit Result
Review of 1983 Right to Medical Care Claims
Great 9th Circuit Result from Jacobs & Schlesinger’s David A. Schlesinger! Thanks to David’s incredible appellate advocacy, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit has concluded that the proper standard of review for 1983 right to medical care claims is one of objective indifference, not subjective indifference! This has the potential to help countless people whom the government has harmed through medical neglect during detention or incarceration.
