But not all defendants have that right. If you’re called to <a href="http://www.justice.gov/eoir/">immigration court</a>, for example, you have to hire a private attorney. If you can’t afford one, you’re on your own. Many agencies provide free legal services to immigrants in these situations, but these agencies are overwhelmed. And even immigrants who can afford an attorney have to be careful who they hire. Some unlicensed practitioners prey on unsuspecting immigrants to make easy money.</p><p> Tue, 05 Mar 2013 00:40:44 +0000 Jude Joffe-Block 23926 at http://kalw.org Fraudulent lawyers prey on immigrants
