How to talk to employers about your pending EAD

Hi all, 

I am adjusting my status through marriage and am currently waiting for my EAD card. I plan to expedite the process by using a job offer, claiming a financial loss. I have seen many of you have done this, and was wondering if you could share with me how you talked to your employer about the process, convincing them to offer you a position while you expedite the process? I have a position offer pending, and my employer just disclosed that their lawyer stated that I cannot expedite the process using an offer letter (?!). I also made sure they know that there's a good chance that USCIS will not approve the expedition. And I am looking for more info that I can forward to them about this whole process as well.

Why is a lawyer involved? You just need a simple letter with a job offer, I would imagine an email would do.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

My company used to send job offers pending and EAD.  We included a phase like "The offer is contingent upon the applicant obtaining an EAD / Green card within 90 days of this offer."  This is from  3 or 4 years ago but we never had any issues.
