LUNCH & LEARN Presented by the LCPA:
IMMIGRATION LAW AND ITS REACH INTO NEARLY EVERY OTHER PRACTICE AREA
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
With immigration taking center stage in Washington, all attorneys and paralegals—criminal defense, personal injury, estate, family, tax, employment, education, workers and unemployment compensation, municipal, real estate development financing, to outside and in-house general and corporate counsel—are finding, time and again, a growing intersection with immigration law. As the Supreme Court wrote in Padilla v. Kentucky, “immigration law is complex, and it is a legal specialty of its own.” This has become and remains a growing concern for non-immigration law practitioners and paralegals, particularly given Lehigh County’s growing, diverse, and increasingly “global” population.
Whether it is a criminal defense attorney representing a non-citizen, or, a family lawyer drafting a prenuptial agreement before marriage, or representing a non-citizen spouse in divorce proceedings after a separation. Or, if it is a workers compensation, unemployment compensation, or employment attorney, litigating a claim in favor of or in opposition to a non-citizen, undocumented, or employer immigration sponsored employee, to lawyers acting for developers seeking international financing, or as general counsel for businesses of all sizes.
Attorney Raymond G. Lahoud, a Member of Norris McLaughlin & Marcus and Chair of the Firm’s Immigration Practice Group will address the growing intersection of immigration law with the many other practice areas, how these intersections often lead to the greatest of challenges or concerns, and best practices when handling the non-citizen client.
