Immigration Attorney Sanctioned For Practice While Out Of Lawful Status

The New York Appellate Division for the Third Judicial Department has imposed a stayed one-year reciprocal suspension of an attorney disciplined by the Office of the Chief Immigration Judge of the United States Department of Justice, Executive Office for Immigration Review.

The attorney practiced before the immigration courts after losing his lawful immigration status in August 2007. He was suspended indefinitely by consent as a result. He expressed remorse and now has a valid employment authorization card.

He must maintain lawful status and not be the subject of further disciplinary action by the immigration courts. (Mike Frisch)

Immigration lawyers could explain the different types of visas, including requirements and application processes. Immigration attorneys are licensed to represent clients and practice law; reputable lawyers do not take this power lightly.
