CROOKED LAWYERS LIKELY TO BECOME A BIGGER PROBLEM AS IMMIGRATION REFORM NEARS

Rate this Entry

The New York Times reports on an uptick in legal actions against less than honest attorneys who bilk clients needing immigration services. In my two decades in practice, I've come across a number of these cases. But they usually increase in number as people grow more desperate. The article points out that a lot of bad lawyers come out of the woodwork to target immigrants when news is circulating of possible government programs that will help people resolve their immigration problems.

The article doesn't discuss the topic, but a related problem involves "notarios" - people who pose as lawyers when targeting immigration clients. Prosecutions nationwide against people in this category have also been on the upswing.
