The “How-To” for Immigration Law Case Processing
Built by 30+ year AILA member Catherine Haight, Lista provides step-by-step checklists for working through your employment-based immigration cases. Instead of spending hours or days researching how to prepare a case, Lista provides the clear roadmap for case processing. Action items are clearly laid out and then checked off as completed, date-marked with the case worker’s name.
Once you sign up for Lista, you’ll be able to purchase templates for your choice of cases that are then yours to keep and reuse again and again. Lista’s templates will provide your firm ongoing efficiency and profitability. Lista’s platform also allows you to create your own templates for internal use at no additional charge. You and your staff will love Lista!
Research has shown how using checklists prevents mistakes – when airlines started using checklists prior to take-off, air travel became much safer; when hospitals started using checklists, there was a huge reduction in mistakes in the operating room. The same principles apply to handling immigration cases – following Lista case processes helps avoid mistakes and gets cases approved!
Lista can be used along with your current immigration database. We expect in the future to develop APIs for seamless integration with a number of immigration databases.
AILA attorney Catherine Haight started Haight Law Group in 2002 and developed numerous step-by-step checklists for handling employment- and family-based immigration law cases. Catherine then created Lista as the platform for managing the checklists and monitoring ongoing cases. Instead of spending hours researching or asking their colleague or supervisor what to do next, staff members have a clear roadmap for case processing. Training time has been reduced considerably.
Catherine soon realized other attorneys and law firms would benefit from Lista. The platform is now available by subscription with the ability to purchase reusable immigration case processing templates.

“Lista is a one-stop shop for case processing checklists and sample letters. Makes case preparation a breeze!”
“Lista is a game changer. It’s a checklist manifesto. The attorney doesn’t have to guess whether they checked all aspects of the case. More importantly, if another attorney or a paralegal picks up the case they don’t have to worry about missing anything—the various checkpoints ensure no details are missed. Highly recommended for all attorneys, irrespective of the years in practice.”
