Reciprocal Discipline For Illegal Immigration Lawyer

The Louisiana Supreme Court has imposed reciprocal discipline in a case that we previously covered.

 The lawyer had filed "in excess of 4,700 applications or petitions seeking immigration benefits for clients. However, respondent himself was illegally present in the United States during this time, as he did not have lawful immigration status and did not have authorization for employment in this country from U.S. immigration authorities."

He had been disciplined by the DOJ Executive Office of Immigation Review. Colorado had imposed a suspension of a year and a day. Louisiana here imposed the same sanction as Colorado. (Mike Frisch)
