Session 4: Imperfect Fit/Qualifying Crimes
This session will cover how to use a U-certification to best situate your client for success when the arrest report or charging document is not a perfect fit for a qualifying crime. Focusing on felonious assault and domestic violence, we will discuss two main approaches to this element (the mechanical “similar-to” assertion and the fact-based “detected” argument), when to use each, and how best to document them.
Speakers: Rebecca Eissenova, Senior Staff Attorney, ASISTA; Mark Prada, Partner, Prada Urizar Dominguez, PLLC; Vivianna Stubbe, Immigration Lawyer and Founding Partner of Haratz & Stubbe, LLC.
