If I do that, can I transfer my H1B visa (from B1B2) once I get a job? Or will I have to struggle against some quota?

Can anybody suggest a good lawyer in New York City or near Hoboken, NJ who can help we with all this? I tried contacting Cyrus Mehta, but he seems to be booked for another week.

Btw, thanks for the overwhelming response to my request for resources to find a job. While I am evaluating my options, please keep me in consideration for any openings that you see.

Thanks.
Technically there is no grace period. Get a job ASAP and you need 2 pay-stubs for transfer.You can even do without pay-stubs but you may have to go out for I-94. Best way is to transfer to B1/B2 and you can come back to H1b without any problem.
