eb2 employment based ,row i485 .current ref received for i485 . attorney on file is leaving the practice and opening a new practice. do i continue being represented by him? or his previous law form? this is employment based .
That is entirely up to you. If you are comfortable with that attorney, you may want to move your file with him. If you do move with that attorney, he will need to file a new G-28 (Notice of Appearance), but it shouldn't impact or delay the processing of your case.
if it is employment based, then the choice of lawyer is made by your employer. presumably the firm - not the lawyer - was hired.
This is your choice. Choose the attorney you desire.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
I agree with my colleague it is up to the employer who they wish to retain as attorney to handle the company affairs. If this was not an employee petition, then you could go with the attorney started the process if you wish.
