Impassioned Advocacy During the Trump Administration

The seminar will be divided into 3 panels.  The speakers are from a variety of practice areas, including criminal law, family-based immigration, employment immigration and removal defense. The goal is to inform practitioners about creative strategies to be zealous advocates when USCIS pushes back at every step, requests additional legal arguments, or requests uncommon waivers be submitted. The seminar will include pointers for preparing clients for interviews, preparing legal arguments, and statute-specific advice regarding criminal convictions.
