Focus: Deferred Action - Invitation
to Speak
As a leader in the immigration world, ILW.COM is fortunate to have
excellent relationships with several national and local pro- immigrant and
DREAM-related organizations around the country. We are now working with those
organizations to plan events for the beneficiaries of the Deferred Action
announcement. We are doing events nationwide, with events already scheduled in
the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest. These are short events typically held
weekday evenings where an attorney addresses a room full of about 25-100
attendees. We have held several such events already. You can see photos and
videos of past events here
Speaking at an event like this is surely a great way to get your name and face
in front of those interested in benefitting from deferred action.

We believe that if more high quality and reliable information is out there,
fewer people will fall prey to unscrupulous notarios. Also, we see this as one
of the situations where what is good for business is also ethical for an
attorney and helpful to the public - a win-win situation for all concerned. We
encourage attorneys to hold themselves to the highest ethical standards as they
pursue this opportunity.

ILW.COM will handle the entire planning and execution of these events - all
the attorney needs to do is show up and speak. We will plan the event, book the
venue, handle registration, and even work with you to develop the curriculum.
There is no better way we can think of to help you make personal contact with
people who need your expertise.

Currently we have organizations ready to host workshops in the following
cities: Coachella Valley, CA, San Francisco, CA, New Orleans, LA, Cambridge, MA,
Detroit, MI, Raleigh, NC, East Patchogue, NY, Portland, OR, Aiken, SC, Austin,
TX, Houston,TX, San Antonio, TX, Indianapolis, IN, Fredericksburg, VA. More
organizations are signing up daily.

If you would like to speak at any of the cities listed above or would like us
to organize an event for you in your city email us at
