Siskind Susser is currently co-counseling in a number of mass immigration litigation matters. If you are a potential client in one of those cases and are looking to participate as a named plaintiff, please follow the instructions linked below.
Did you miss the deadline for onboarding? Sometimes we have the opportunity to add plaintiffs after a case is filed. To be added to a waiting list for one of our cases, sign up here.
Our current cases include:
- EAD (work permit) processing delays: NOW ACCEPTING PLAINTIFFS through September 24, 2021. USCIS is often taking more than 180 days to adjudicate applications for employment authorization, leaving applicants at risk of losing their jobs, health insurance, and drivers’ licenses.
