As attorneys we protect our clients, but we can't always be present during every encounter they have with ICE, USCIS, or CBP. How should attorneys handle these situations? Do your clients always have the right to counsel? The panelists will discuss ethically preparing and advising individual and business clients about their rights and the actions they may take during such encounters with DHS.

Featured Topics

  • Giving Advice to Clients About Future Encounters with ICE, CBP, or USCIS
  • What Rights Does Your Client Have in the Case of a Raid or Other Apprehension by ICE or CBP?

  • What Rights Does a Noncitizen Have Arriving at the Airport or a Border Crossing?
