If you have initiated proceedings with USCIS, you should be fine. By waiting on the lawyer, do you mean for the lawyer to file your papers or to receive notification back from USCIS? HB 87 is a state law and cannot trump federal law. It provides enforcement provisions for employers. Without knowing more, it is difficult to provide you with a detailed response.
