Default H1 extension for consultants

Hi, This is my first time here. I have been hearing a lot about H1-extensions facing challenges. One of my friends, who is a consultant has got his H1-extended only for a the next 6 months. I understood from him that his client manager was called and asked how long his project will last and since the answer was, "6 months as of now, and longer if the market picks up", he was given the extn for 6 months. Another friend of mine who works full-time in a technology company has got his H1 extended for 3 years. My question: Has any of you(if you are a consultant) got your visa extended for 3 years, or do you know of a consultant who has got his visa extended for 3 years in the last few months. I know, that consultants face a lot of scrutiny, but wanted to confirm if for all of them, the extensions are limited.

Default H1 extension for consultants

Even I am very worried about the same as my filling for H1 extn is going to come soon and due to the recent denials, I am very worried. I don't have EAD also with me and my priority date is very late. I heard about 3 cases where H1 extn is denied.
If anyone knows more details about it, please let us know.

If you are in a project and your client is ready to give a letter stating abour your employment on the project , there won't be any problem.

Note: I am not an attorney, consult attorney's for better suggestion
