Diraynan ,

Very helpful and informative

Great resource for staying up to date with immigration the decisions!

Bethbee7654 ,

Great resource

My busy immigration practice leaves little time for keeping up with court cases. I recently learned of this podcast and find it well worth my time. Love that I can learn from Mr. Gregg and keep up with new developments while commuting, gardening, or out walking. Thank you for doing this!

Elroy88 ,

Great listen for lawyers and non-lawyers alike

Being a lawyer was my first choice when people used to ask what I wanted to be when I grew up, and even though that dream never materialized, I really enjoy listening and learning through this pod. It’s very informative and I love having those “aha!” moments when I start to understand what’s going on. Great job, Kevin!
