Washington Post Examines Life in Immigration Court

On Monday, February 2, 2014, the Washington Post published an article describing what Immigration Court is like.  In writing the article, Eli Saslo interviewed Immigration Judge Lawrence O. Burman.  Above is a photo, published by the Washington Post in connection with the article, taken from Judge Burman's perspective in his courtroom.

I have practiced before Judge Burman.  I find him fair, personable and knowledgeable, which is really all you want in any judge.  He also can have a dry sense of humor.  Today, when confirming a woman's address, he noted that she lived on John Marshall Street.  He asked her if she knew who John Marshall was.  When she responded that she didn't, Judge Burman told her that not only was he a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, but also an officer who served with General Washington in the Colonial Army.  He then commented that under current US law, this would make him a terrorist (which is true).

Much of my practice is before the Arlington Immigration Court, which I enjoy very much.  If you need representation in an immigration matter, call the number below for an appointment.
