You can only complete immigration forms for your self, not for others. Doing so would probably be considered unauthorized practice of law.
J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.
Mr. Ferrari is correct ... it is against the law for a non-attorney, or non-BIA-accredited-representative to fill in immigration forms.
Stick to what you are licensed for ... and no more.

What you craftily refer as "to fill out immigrations forms especial Form I-821D," could be construed unauthorized practice of law by a lay person as you will attempt to place answers onto the form that will have subsequent immigration consequences (fraud, perjury to name a few).
I strongly urge you to leave the practice of law to licensed professionals otherwise you may be looking for some of my colleagues who practice in the areas of criminal defense in Virginia.
