Virginia State Bar (VSB) addresses Immigration Fraud

The Virginia State Bar released information about the increasing amount of immigration fraud that occurs by Immigration Consultants and Notarios who engage in what is known as the unauthorized practice of the law (UPL).

The actions taken by such consultants and notaries need to be addressed and I applaud the VSB for taking such steps.  However, I would also add that unfortunately a large number of unscrupulous attorneys also engage in such behavior.  Maybe VSB and others alike should consider posting more information about dealing with Immigration Fraud committed by licensed attorneys.
