Great way to stay up to date

This podcast is a great way to keep up to date on fed court cases in the immigration arena. Lots of practical tips on how even bad cases can be spun in positive ways.

And of course, you gotta love the circuit-split gong!

Marco Balducci ,

A great use of an immigration lawyer’s time

Kevin is the Nina Totenberg of immigration law.

Like Nina Totenberg, Kevin’s show is very listenable and accessible - even when discussing gnarly cases.

In addition to reporting the cases, Kevin also provides valuable insights and practical suggestions derived from the cases he discusses.

Thank you Kevin and KKTP - Great job!

Crucial Information

Immigration law practitioners who don’t listen to this are borderline committing malpractice. Lots of great analysis and tips on brand new cases.
