Litwin & Smith: H1B Cap Registration Successes

The H1B visa, a critical pathway for skilled workers aiming to work in the United States, operates under a cap system that has introduced a competitive lottery process due to overwhelming demand. With only 85,000 visas available annually, including 20,000 reserved for applicants with a U.S. master’s degree or higher, the process has become notoriously challenging. 

As applicants and employers navigate this complex landscape, the role of immigration lawyers has become increasingly important, not in manipulating the lottery odds but in ensuring applications are flawlessly prepared to avoid disqualification. Among these legal professionals, Litwin & Smith stands out for our remarkable success in H1B cap registration applications.

The Myth of Increasing Lottery Odds

It’s crucial to clarify that lawyers do not have the ability to increase an applicant’s chances of being selected in the H1B lottery. The selection process is randomized and managed by the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), ensuring that all applications have an equal chance of selection, provided they meet the eligibility criteria.

Avoiding Disqualification: The Lawyer’s Role

Where lawyers make a significant difference is in their expertise to navigate the intricacies of immigration law, ensuring that every application is meticulously prepared and free from errors that could lead to disqualification. Common pitfalls that can result in an application being rejected include incorrect or incomplete information, failure to demonstrate eligibility, and not adhering to strict filing deadlines. Professional immigration lawyers understand these requirements in detail and can guide applicants through the process to avoid these risks.

Litwin & Smith’s H1B Success Strategy

Litwin & Smith, a reputable immigration law firm, has garnered attention for our consistent record of successful H1B registration applications. Clients represented by our law firm have an unprecedented track record of being chosen in the H1B lottery and having their applications approved. In fact, in one recent year, all but one of our clients was selected in the lottery, and all selected applicants were approved for a visa. Year over year, Litwin & Smith has had the highest success rate of H-1B Visa approvals next to all other H-1B Visa attorneys and immigration law firms in California. 

While our firm cannot guarantee that a given registration is chosen in the lottery, we do understand the factors that can remove someone from consideration. Our success can be attributed to several key strategies:
