Immigration Law is not a required course at most law schools and not something that attorneys should experiment in.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 12, 2012
A recent article on WNYC.org (http://www.wnyc.org/articles/wnyc-news/2012/jul/01/study-says-immigration-lawyering-new-york-crisis/) discusses a study that revealed there is "a 'dire' shortage of lawyers who are qualified to practice immigration law" in the state of New York. The article also states that this study "is the first time lawyers in New York state have convened to set minimum standards for the performance levels of immigration lawyers."
Daniel Fisher, of New York City Immigration Law Firm Fisher & Frommer, comments on the article:
"The shortage of qualified immigration attorneys is clearly evident to anyone practicing in the area. Unlike other areas of law, immigration has its own unique set of procedures and tends to be very unforgiving with little room for error. Furthermore, Immigration Law is not a required course at most law schools and not something that attorneys should experiment in. Any immigration attorney can you tell a horror story of a client who worked with a previous attorney that failed to file something properly and the client is now facing deportation through no fault of their own. While I believe that most practicing Immigration Attorneys are qualified, it is wise to research any attorney that you choose to work with. Ask the attorney if they practice solely immigration law, how many years they have practiced, what is their succcess rate and do they litigate cases?"
