How long can I extend my H1B visa for?

asked Apr 7 in H1B: Extensions by anonymous
I entered the US on 01 Oct 2013 with Employer A on a 3year H1B Visa. I moved to Employer B on 28 Dec 2015 and my new H1B visa expires on 28 Dec 2018.  My employer would like to extend my current H1B visa until the maximum time possible, I have spent 87 days outside the US during this time.

How long can I extend to?

Any recommendations on a lawyer who can do this?

The maximum allowed is 6 Years, you can recapture the 87 Days spent outside the USA, To extend beyond the 6-year limit, you must have a GC Initiated.
