Default 2nd H1B transfer while 1st transfer is pending

I joined a new employer in May and also had applied for H1B transfer at that time. Now I have a very good offer from another firm but my first H1B transfer is still pending. The new offer is much more rewarding financially. Is it possible to apply for H1 B transfer to the new employer without jeopardizing my H1B status. Please note that I got laid off in April and I was in a hurry to get the new job then, it was also about just over a month when I applied for my H1B transfer since losing that job so I am kind of nervous about the results from USCIS.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions, friends!

Default I guess it can be done

One can have more than one H1B at a time. So you can ask the second company file for transfer too. If you worry about the first petition, and you feel comfortable to do so, talk about it with the attorney of the second company. Or, you can call USCIS and ask a immigration officer.

Default check with your lawyer also to be on the safe side

read the approach called 'bridging' (last paragraph) here:

it literally describes your case (H1 transfer to C when a transfer to B is pending).
