A Message from the Chair

Hello Immigration & Nationality Law Section Members!

Throughout the 2022-2023 year we will bring you information on the intersection of immigration law and other Texas practice areas plus cutting-edge immigration issues that affect your clients. Have you wondered how a Texas common law marriage affects your client’s I-130 petition or whether a felony DWI will impede your client’s ability to obtain an immigrant visa or adjustment of status? Our speakers and authors have the answers for you. We provide tools to better run your Texas law practice. We also help meet your annual MCLE and ethics requirements. If you are interested in board certification, we can help you along that path. Join us for our monthly fourth-Tuesday-lunch-webinar on cutting-edge immigration topics. Due to the overwhelming success of last years’ immigration writing workshop, we are expanding this year’s writing workshop to allow for more participants. Legal writing experts will grade your assignments and give you feedback to become a better writer. Give some thought to serving your fellow SBOT members by joining one of our committees. I hope to see you soon at one of our events. Lastly, if you need to contact me, send me an email, or contact me at my office: https://www.roypetty.com/contact-our-office/
