Chapter 3 – Attorney Discipline

(a) Overview

EOIR regulates the professional conduct of immigration attorneys and representatives in order to protect the public, preserve the integrity of immigration proceedings and adjudications, and maintain high professional standards among immigration practitioners.  EOIR's Disciplinary Counsel investigates complaints involving alleged misconduct associated with practice before EOIR's immigration courts and the Board of Immigration Appeals to determine whether an attorney or representative has engaged in criminal, unethical, or unprofessional conduct.
