New York Attorney General Combats Unauthorized Practice of Law

On January 14, 2010, New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo obtained a restraining order against The International Immigrants Foundation, preventing the organization from providing legal assistance on immigration matters. The organization’s President, Eduardo Juarez, is not an attorney, but has been advising on immigration matters for over 20 years. He routinely preyed on the immigration community with high fees and a monthly membership fee during pending immigration matters. Attorney General Cuomo is now working to find competent authorized representation for the ongoing immigration cases.
