1 Unauthorized Practice of Law Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia - Laws, Regulations and Procedures for how to file a complaint against a Notario Publico

2 Overview Notary v. Notario Publico Consequences to Victims Individuals Authorized to Undertake Representation in Immigration Court Limits On What a Notary May Do Maryland Virginia District of Columbia

3 Notary vs. Notario Publico Notary An individual appointed by the state government to witness the signing of important documents and administer oaths. A notary may not prepare legal documents or act as a legal advisor unless he or she is a licensed attorney. Notario In Latin American countries, a notario publico is considered a high ranking official with considerable legal skills and training. Unlike a US Notary, they draft documents, provide legal advice and settle disputes.

4 Notary v. Notario Publico (The Problem) Although notario, or the equivalent, in many other countries means that an individual is an attorney, this is not the case in the United States. Thousands of immigrants are victimized by people who exploit this confusion and falsely represent themselves as notarios. Common schemes include: Promising a quick work permit, then filing a fraudulent asylum application, leading to an order of removal (deportation). Important to know whether removal ordered in absentia Falsely representing that a notario can reduce sentences on convictions or prepare complex appeals. Filing petitions for people barred by law from getting the benefit they seek.

5 Consequences Removal orders Applications for relief considered abandoned Persons made vulnerable to denial of benefits for allegedly providing false information (e.g., where the victim didn t see or sign what the notario filed on their behalf) Thousands of dollars extorted from victims

A reputable individual who has a relationship with the immigrant which pre-exists the representation and who receives no payment for their assistance See: 8 C.F.R (a)(1)-(6)

7 Limits of What a Notary May Do Regarding Immigration Matters May not prepare legal documents or act as a legal advisor. Can provide clerical, secretarial, or translation assistance with immigration forms, so long as they don t provide legal advice, and then may notarize these forms.

16 VIRGINIA

17 Virginia State Bar s Standing Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law The Standing Committee was established to review and act upon complaints alleging the unauthorized practice of law; and issue advisory opinions explaining what activities constitute UPL. The ethics counsel and staff screen incoming complaints and open files for investigation if there is probable cause to believe that a nonlawyer is holding himself or herself out as authorized to practice law or is engaging in UPL. The complaint form can be found on their website at: or you can contact Michelle Townsend by phone or to request that the form be mailed or faxed. (804) ; The completed complaint form should be mailed to: James M. Mcauley, Ethics Counsel, Virginia State Bar, 707 E. Main Street, Suite 1500, Richmond, VA

18 Additional Ethical Implications The Virginia Code of Professional Responsibility Are attorneys ethically required to report to the Standing Committee nonattorneys who represent themselves as attorneys? Probably not. Disciplinary Rule Obligation to Report Misconduct: (A) A lawyer having information indicating that another lawyer has committed a violation of the Disciplinary Rules that raises a substantial question as to that lawyer's honesty, trustworthiness, or fitness to practice law in other respects, shall report such information to the appropriate professional authority, except as provided in DR Should a Virginia attorney consider the reporting of a non-attorney who represents themselves as an attorney as part of their ethical obligation? Yes. Ethical Consideration 1-2. The public should be protected from those who are not qualified to be lawyers by reason of a deficiency in education, ethical standards or of other factors... Are there any ethical implications when a bona fide Virginia attorney advertises themselves as being a notario publico? Potentially. Disciplinary Rule 2-101(A). Publicity and Advertising. A lawyer shall not, on behalf of himself or any other lawyer affiliated with him or his firm, use or participate in the use of any form of public communication if such communication contains a false, fraudulent, misleading, or deceptive statement or claim.

19 Virginia State Bar s Standing Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law Possible Outcomes: The committee may: (1) dismiss the complaint if there is insufficient evidence of UPL; (2) enter into a consent agreement in which the defendant agrees to cease engaging in the activity at issue; (3) refer the complaint to the office of the attorney general for a writ quo warranto seeking to enjoin the defendant from further engaging in UPL; or (4) or refer the complaint to a commonwealth's attorney for criminal enforcement

20 Virginia Notary Act A notary is empowered to: (i) take acknowledgments; (ii) administer oaths and affirmations; (iii) certify that a copy of any document, other than a document in the custody of a court, is a true copy thereof; (iv) certify affidavits or depositions of witnesses; and (v) perform such other acts as may be specifically permitted by law.

23 District of Columbia

24 District of Columbia Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law The Committee on UPL is created under the D.C. Court of Appeals under DC R A CT Rule 49. They investigate complaints against persons who are engaging in the unauthorized practice of law. When a complaint is filed with the Committee the matter is assigned to a Committee member for a preliminary investigation. If the Committee determines that it is necessary, it will initiate formal proceedings. There is no provision in Rule 49 for any other person or party to take legal action for enforcement, however, an injured party may initiate proceedings to seek civil damages.

25 District of Columbia Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law Rule 49. Unauthorized Practice of Law. (a) General Rule. No person shall engage in the practice of law in the District of Columbia or in any manner hold out as authorized or competent to practice law in the District of Columbia unless enrolled as an active member of the District of Columbia Bar, except as otherwise permitted by these Rules.

27 District of Columbia Committee on Unauthorized Practice of Law The Committee may initiate original proceedings before the Court of Appeals for violation of Rule 49. Violations of Rule 49 are punishable by the Ct. of Appeals as contempt and/or subject to injunctive relief. The Court may also include within it s remedy compensation to persons harmed by violation of Rule 49.

28 Additional Information and Last Thoughts

29 Some Things to Keep in Mind When Filing A Complaint With the VA State Bar s Standing Committee on UPL and/or the DC Committee on UPL The purpose of filing this type of complaint is not necessarily to get money back from the immigration consultant but to notify the state agency about possible deceptive and unfair business practices. If enough complaints are filed about the same immigration consultant, the state agency might take action against the individual to stop the deceptive or unfair practices. Remember: it is the client s decision as to whether to file a complaint against an immigration consultant. If you decide to assist a client, you should make sure that the client understands the pros and cons of filing such a complaint. For example, the anti-immigrant sentiment that is apparent in many states might lead some state officials to question whether they should report undocumented people to the Department of Homeland Security.
