(a) Attorneys in the United States. Any attorney, as defined in § 1.1(f) of this chapter, may represent persons before the Service and the Board.

(b) Reputable individuals. When a person is entitled to representation, he may be represented by any reputable individual of good moral character who is appearing without remuneration, directly or indirectly, and files a written declaration to that effect, if such representation is permitted by a regional commissioner, district director, officer in charge, special inquiry officer, the Commissioner, or the Board.

(c) Accredited representatives. A person may be represented by an accredited representative of an organization described in § 1.1(j) of this chapter.

(d) Accredited officials. An alien may be represented by an accredited official, in the United States, of the government to which he owes allegiance, if the official appears solely in his official capacity and with the alien's consent.

(e) Attorneys outside the United States. An attorney, other than one described in § 1.1(f) of this chapter, residing outside the United States and licensed to practice law and in good standing in a court of the country in which he resides, and who is engaged in

such practice, may be permitted by a regional commissioner, district director, officer in charge, the Commissioner, or the Board to be heard. The regional commissioner and district director are authorized to withhold granting permission to be heard before an officer under their jurisdiction and may refer the request to the Board for its decision.

(f) Amicus curiae. A person desiring to be heard as amicus curiae shall apply therefor to the Board. The Board may grant such application if in the public interest to do so.

(g) Former employees. A person previously employed by the Department of Justice is not permitted to represent in a case in which he participated during the period of his employment.

(a) Form G-27. A request for recognition by an organization described in § 1.1(j) of this chapter shall be filed on Form G-27 with a regional commissioner, district director, or the Commissioner for transmittal to the Board, or with the Board.

(b) Accreditation. An organization described in § 1.1(j) of this chapter may certify as its accredited representatives only persons who are citizens of the United States and are of good moral character.

[23 F.R. 2672, Apr. 23, 1958, as amended at 23 F.R. 9124, Nov. 26, 1958; 26 F.R. 3564, Apr. 26, 1961]

§ 292.3 Suspension or disbarment.

(a) Grounds. The Board, with the approval of the Attorney General, may suspend or bar from further practice an attorney or representative if it shall find that it is in the public interest to do so. The suspension or disbarment of an attorney or representative who is within one or more of the following categories shall be deemed to be in the public interest, for the purpose of this part, but the enumeration of the following categories does not establish the exclusive grounds for suspension or disbarment in the public interest:

(1) Who charges or receives, either directly or indirectly, any fee or compensation for services which may be deemed to be grossly excessive in relation to the services performed, or who, being an accredited representative of an organization recognized under § 1.1(j) of this chapter, charges or receives either directly or indirectly any fee or compensation for services rendered to any person, except that an accredited representative of such an organization may be regularly compensated by the organization of which he is an accredited representative;

(2) Who, with intent to defraud or deceive, bribes, attempts to bribe, coerces, or attempts to coerce, by any means whatsoever, any person, including a party to a case, or an officer or employee of the Service or Board, to commit an act or to refrain from performing an act in connection with any case;

(3) Who willfully misleads, misinforms, or deceives an officer or employee of the Department of Justice concerning any material and relevant fact in connection with a case;

(4) Who willfully deceives, misleads, or threatens any party to a case concerning any matter relating to the case;

(5) Who solicits practice in any unethical or unprofessional manner, including, but not limited to, the use of runners, or advertising his availability to handle immigration, naturalization, or nationality matters;

(6) Who represents, as an associate, any person who, known to him, solicits practice in any unethical or unprofessional manner, including, but not limited to, the use of runners, or advertising his availability to handle immigration, naturalization, or nationality matters;

(7) Who has been temporarily suspended, and such suspension is still in effect, or permanently disbarred, from practice in any court, Federal, State (including the District of Columbia), territorial, or insular;

(8) Who is temporarily suspended, and such suspension is still in effect, or permanently disbarred, from practice in a representative capacity before any executive department, board, commission, or other governmental unit, Federal, State (including the District of Columbia), territorial, or insular;

(9) Who, by use of his name, personal appearance, or any device, aids and abets any person to practice during the period of his suspension or disbarment, such suspension or disbarment being known to him;

(10) Who willfully made false and material statements or representations with respect to his qualifications or authority to represent others in any case;

(11) Who engages in contumelious or otherwise obnoxious conduct with respect to a case in which he acts in a representative capacity, which in the opinion of the Board, would constitute cause for suspension or disbarment if the case was pending before a court, or which, in such a judicial proceeding, would constitute a contempt of court;

(12) Who, having been furnished with a copy of any portion of the record in a case, willfully fails to surrender such copy upon final disposition of the case or upon demand, or willfully and without authorization makes and retains a copy of the material furnished;

(13) Who has been convicted of a felony, or, having been convicted of any crime is sentenced to imprisonment for a term of more than one year; or

(14) Who has falsely certified a copy of a document as being a true and complete copy of an original.

(b) Procedure. If and investigation establishes to the satisfaction of the regional commissioner that suspension or disbarment proceedings should be instituted, he shall cause a copy of the written charges to be served upon the attorney or representative, either personally or by registered mail, with notice to show cause within a specified time, not less than 30 days, why he should not be suspended or disbarred. The notice shall also advise that after answer has been made and the matter is at issue, a hearing before a representative of the regional commissioner may be requested. When a hearing is requested, the regional commissioner will specify the time and place therefor and specially designate the officer who shall preside and the officer who shall present the evidence. If an answer is not received within 3 days after expiration of the period prescribed to show cause, defense to the charges is waived. When a hearing is not requested in the answer, the regional commissioner shall forward the complete record to the Board with his recommendation. The attorney or representative, either with or without counsel, and the regional commissioner, by the service officer within the purview of § 3.1(e) of this chapter, shall have the privilege of appearing before the Board for oral argument at a time specified by the Board. The Board shall consider the record and render its decision. The order of the Board shall constitute the final disposition of the proceeding: Provided, however, That if the order is to suspend or disbar, or if any one of the circumstances described in § 3.1(h) of this chapter is present, the Board shall refer the record to the Attorney General for review of its decision and in such case the order of the Attorney General shall be the final determination of the proceeding. When the final order is for suspension or disbarment, the attorney or representative shall not thereafter be permitted to practice until authorized by the Board.

(a) Form G-28. An appearance shall be filed on Form C-28 by the attorney or representative appearing in each case. Thereafter, substitution may be per

mitted upon the written withdrawal of the attorney or representative of record or upon notification of the new attorney or representative. When an appearance is made by a person acting in a representative capacity, his personal appearance or signature shall constitute a representation that under the provisions of this chapter he is authorized and qualified to represent. Further proof of authority to act in a representative capacity may be required.

(b) Availability of records. During the time a case is pending, and except as otherwise provided in § 103.2(b) of this chapter, a party to a proceeding or his attorney or representative shall be permitted to examine the record of proceeding in a Service office. He may, in conformity with § 103.10 of this chapter, obtain copies of Service records or information therefrom and copies of documents or transcripts of evidence furnished by him. Upon request, he may, in addition, be loaned a copy of the testimony and exhibits contained in the record of proceeding upon giving his receipt for such copies and pledging that it will be surrendered upon final disposition of the case or upon demand. If extra copies of exhibits do not exist, they shall not be furnished free on loan; however, they shall be made available for copying or purchase of copies as provided in § 103.10 of this chapter.

[23 F.R. 2673, Apr. 23, 1958, as amended at 32 F.R. 9633, July 4, 1967]

Whenever a person is required by any of the provisions of this chapter to give or be given notice; to serve or be served with any paper other than a warrant of arrest or a subpoena; to make a motion; to file or submit an application or other document; or to perform or waive the performance of any act, such notice, service, motion, filing, submission, performance, or waiver shall be given by or to, served by or upon, made by, or requested of, the attorney or representative of record, or the person himself if unrepresented.

[23 F.R. 2673, Apr. 23, 1958, as amended at 34 F.R. 12213, July 24, 1969; 37 F.R. 11471, June 8, 1972]
