Episode Notes

The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York issued an opinion that opened with these words: “With disturbing frequency, this Court encounters evidence of ineffective representation by attorneys retained by immigrants seeking legal status in this country.” Law.com bloggers and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Robert Ambrogi, discuss this hot-button issue as they turn to the experts: Attorney Lisa D. Ramirez, immigration lawyer from the Law Office of Lisa D.

They will question the quality of legal representation of immigrants, why so many are receiving sub par legal assistance and what lawyers are doing to provide their clients with the best possible representation.
