Navigating Inadmissibility and Discretion for Controlled Substance and Alcohol Issues

Imagine your client just disclosed a DUI conviction from a few years ago. Or maybe your client has told you that she has used marijuana in a state where it is legal. Is there reason to be concerned about: health-based inadmissibility? Crime-based inadmissibility? Lack of good moral character? Adverse discretionary factors? Exposure to enforcement? This presentation will address the potential immigration law consequences of controlled substance and alcohol abuse, as well as the part discretion plays in adjudicating applications for immigration benefits.
