Yesterday, I was on a panel of lawyers that spoke at a Continuing Legal Education (CLE) presentation for the NY Chapter of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA). The presentation was called “Crimmigration – Both Sides Now.” Crimmigration is an area of immigration law that involves representing non-citizens with criminal history. I spoke the things an immigration attorney should discuss with a criminal lawyer when trying to figure out the possible immigration consequence of a plea offer. I also discussed how an immigration lawyer should work with a criminal lawyer, when a non-citizen has a conviction that needs to be vacated. Because I have done so much work with non-citizens with criminal history during my career as an immigration attorney, the NY Chapter of AILA invited me to speak on this subject.
