Immigration attorneys priodve counsel, legal assistance and representation to individuals who are faced with an issue related to processing of their documentation related to immigration. They also represent individuals in court who are facing deportation or when challenging a decision made by an immigration judge.They are also available for consultation related to immigration law and rules and how the changes to these laws and rules may affect their clients.Immigration attorneys also develop public policy related to immigration and are responsible for interpreting international law and how these law may affect policy under development.Hope this helps.

That accusation was something that has to be appealed to the Judge, I think they did absolutely the right thing and I was on their place I'd do the same. That was a very smart and moreover honest decision. I couldn't have expected any better from them. I first heard of this case on the internet radio and I can't deny I was extremely pleased to find this out.

“If [attorneys] knew that decisions like this were likely or even possible, they would lean on their clients something awful to make sure their clients complied with discovery rules.”

Except that decisions like this are handed down by the fistful against the District of Columbia, and yet it's attorneys still continue to one-up each other's frauds and mistakes.

"Unheard of"? Not if this judge has been talking to his colleagues: try Barham v. Ramsay, which included all of the above behaviors, and added in deliberate destruction and editing of evidence. As far as I know, sanctions are still being considered there as well.

“If [attorneys] knew that decisions like this were likely or even possible, they would lean on their clients something awful to make sure their clients complied with discovery rules.” This quote amazed me about how clueless some attorneys are concerning discovery rules and the potential penalties that come with violating them. Hopefully this ruling will do its part in spreading the word that the FRCP's discovery rules must be followed or else parties will pay the consequences.
