Can any lawyer practice immigration law as far as he is an "attorney at law" and represent a client in applying to USCIS? If a special qualification or a certificate is needed, how can one find if a certain lawyer is eligible?

  1. Best answer

    Yes, any licensed attorney can practice immigration law. However, I suggest that you hire a lawyer who practices immigration law to help you with any petitions to USCIS.

    Immigration lawyers are trained in the intricacies of U.S. immigration law and are better equipped with the knowledge, education and expertise to provide you with best options for your matter.

    Good luck to you.

    Should every attorney practice immigration? no, it requires training, experience and a desire to help people

    Look for an experienced immigration attorney or one who has an experienced mentor. Some states have specialist certifications, some do not.
    The American Immigration Lawyers Assocation has a website that lists members. www.uscis.org
