ABA book helps private lawyers navigate the changing terrain of immigration compliance

CHICAGO, Dec. 3, 2018 — Just published by the American Bar Association, ABA Immigration Compliance and Best Practices” offers crucial expertise to private labor and employment attorneys, rivaling the resources available to government lawyers. Renowned immigration lawyers and authors Charles M. Miller, Marcine A. Seid and Daniel Brown bring their combined experience to this practitioners’ handbook.

As ICE enforcement increases in the workplace — with audits that can quickly turn from civil inspections to criminal investigations — knowing the ins and outs of immigration compliance can prove critical to employers. With hard-to-find knowledge and comprehensive detail rarely accessible to the private practice lawyer, “ABA Immigration Compliance and Best Practices” guides attorneys to the most effective solutions to federal regulations for past and future employees, as well as asylees and refugees.

Miller helped establish immigration law as a field of legal specialization in California, serving on the state bar’s Specialty Advisory Commission as chairman and a member. His ABA and Aspen books, coauthored with Seid, are indispensable immigration compliance resources. Miller is the founding partner of the Miller Law Offices in Studio City, Calif.

Seid is the principal attorney of the Seid Law Group of Palo Alto, Calif. Seid’s practice focuses on business immigration and the representation of employers in I-9 inspections and worksite investigations. She is the coauthor of “Immigration Law in the Workplace” (Aspen) and “Immigration Compliance Auditing for Lawyers” (ABA).

Brown is a partner in the Washington, D.C., office of Fragomen, Del Rey, Bernsen & Loewy LLP, and is part of the firm’s Government Strategies and Compliance Group. Prior to entering private practice, he was the ICE director of the Office of Policy and Planning and held other senior Department of Homeland Security positions.
